Sure.

And when you twist and fumble as usual, the joke will be on you.

These new "spring" people will be bouncing on their pogo sticks all the way to the paddy wagons.



But I do hope their message is clear.

The establishments they will frequent are the beer halls.

Twist and fumble as usual? LOL. Yeah, sure. I rely on more than emoticons and vague snipery for my commentary.

But hey ... you made yet ANOTHER "spring" joke ... you are totally bankrupt of any reasonable statement regarding this topic, aren't you?

Is that really a quote from the Democratic Spring site? Or any representatives?

Can you provide a link to that quote?

Does it matter when their actions prove that quote to be accurate?

I just laughed so hard.

Sadly, their actions seem to represent exactly that. They don't like a certain view and so therefore they will disrupt it at all costs under the guise of "protest" and cause the biggest spark in the “fire that transforms the political climate in America #ClimateChange" by not leaving until their demands are met/they get their way/their opponent goes bye/they're all in jail due to the massive and apparently only partially legal disruption they have planned.

Also, I love your avatar.

Only if one favors the fact and truth over hyperbole and falsification.

When you say "their" actions, to whom are you referring?

Have you seen a Democratic Spring event? Or are you buying into the narrative that because MoveOn supports this effort, that equates this group with the Chicago protests?

Speaking of facts ... and a total lack of them.

True enough, OWS2.0 and the Tea Party come from a common source of frustration. Both groups know that something is wrong in America, and they are tired of the crony corporatism and insider actions.

The difference comes from what the groups believe will solve the problem.

The Tea Party advocates smaller government, lowered regulations, less taxes, return power to the state laboratories.

My guess is that OWS2.0 will promote more government, more regulation, higher taxes, and more power to the central/federal government. But they'll call it 'smarter government' or something similar.


The Tea Party ... that has had no positive effect on anything thus far and is now basically a dead letter? Okay.


Nope. They pushed the Democrats out of Congress in 2010 through 2014. Big positive impact.

Exposed the corrupt, fascist Obama administration for what they are with the IRS targeting.

We're still here.


The Tea Party in reality was only in favor of smaller government and less ONLY when it suited their own agenda, as are most right-wing groups.


Whatever you need to tell yourself.


Return power to the State laboratories? LOL. So you prefer tyranny at the local level? Closer to home? Nice.


I prefer government that affects me directly to be more localized. If you think that means tyranny, whatever.


Your guess is worth what it's worth. Perhaps we'll see something more from this group better than the silly ridicule and hypocrisy on display here.


Depends on if they plan on doing more than loitering, pooping on police cars and raping the ladies in their ranks.

LOL, the non-existent IRS "scandal"? Yes, that's quite the crowing achievement.

The Tea Parties are "still here"? Perhaps, but they're not much more than a stale joke. The only thing that they represent by and large to the American people is a bunch of stubborn, ignorant clods who got a bump in popularity for a few years and then showed themselves rather bumpkinish in DC (when they weren't demanding their own slice of the state welfare pie like Andy Harris from Maryland)

You prefer government that affects you to be more localized, and therefore, more apt to interfere with your life? Sure, as you say ... "whatever."

I know that "pooping on police cars" probably really offends your inner authoritarian, but really, how snide and simplistic that response is.

Perhaps as well, they won't suckerpunch anyone, dig any trenches through sacred land to crap in, or cry for snacks and underwear either.

Funded by the same people,that funded and organized the Arab Spring wars no doubt. Hillary is one of those people.

No. They plan on peaceful non-violent Ghandi-Style protests.

Probably way less destructive than the Original Boston Tea Party which destroyed a corporation's property by dumping it into the harbor waters. The tea was worth about a million dollars in today's money.

Isn't it Patriotic to protest against Tryanny? The problem is two polarized sides are screaming "Tyranny!" at each other.

So these people say "We will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy."

Do they know what democracy is?

People are voting for Trump that is the will of the people.

They have a right to protest peacefully but if Trump is elected by the democratic process of the USA then that is perfectly normal it's just they don't like him so throw a hissy fit which is pretty hilarious really.
Rational people respect the democratic process even if from time to time a leader they may not like is elected. The saying you can't please all the people all the time comes to mind.

The right-wing dog whistle was blown. The Chicago activists were "agitators" and therefore, anyone and everything related to that (all tied neatly together in wingnut beliefs) is also "terrorist."

Most of these respondents here aren't even bothering to find out anything factual about Democracy Spring.

We're dealing with brainwashing in this country on the Right. Facts are completely optional.

Have you actually gone to the Democracy Spring website and read anything about this group?

If not, you should see what they are saying rather than taking Breitbart as gospel.

Demcracy Spring

Note: It is the REPUBLICAN PARTY that is attempting to thwart Mr. Trump's candidacy. Sometimes, distinctions are important.
