The end result would be a more fair and just government and society. Less capitalism and more humanity, it's not rocket science.

I'm almost positive you aren't just 'trying to understand the movement,' you're trying to be a smarta$$.

No I'm genuinely confused about the whole message and direction of the movement, On one hand, you guys say you're for less capitalism and more humanity (whatever that means) and on the other, alot of your solutions involve more gov't (more left leaning gov't)

If you guys had a legitimate direction, I'm sure more people would join the movement.
Although most of us support your right to free speech, we don't appreciate you vandalising innocent peoples property.
Atleast the tea party was somewhat organised

The real un-Americans here are those who condemn anyone's right to speak their mind and express their grievances with the system.

We do have a right to ignore them, after all.

Let's call this a brief lesson in America 101.


thank you for a sane answer

Is “Speak their mind and express grievances with the system” code for Occupy taking a dump on a police car, breaking windows on businesses, destroying public and private property, assaulting people, lighting fires, etc?

Just wondering!


Are these behaviors protected by the 1st amendment?

yes the tea party helped ORGINIZE THE NDAA

OWS is busy creating legislation to counter the corperate written legislation that attempts to give control to the 1%

while on the other hand tea party signs the NDAA

Dude, I don't even see any real difference between Occupy and the Tea Party, except that the "Republicans" , can create a far more vicious and brutal attack campaign against OWS than did the "Democrats" against TP.

It's reasonable to understand that a third or so of the people in the first were also present in the latter movements.

At first the Tea Party was a general open protest, essentially against corruption in government and against oppressive taxation without representation. But then it was hijacked by the "Republicans" and became about complete fake personalities like "Sarah Palin". This way they could change the terms of the protest away from eliminating the tax code to something else, anything else.

With OWS, it began as a general protest against corruption in the banking system and how it's connected to and controls our government. Then the "Democrats" hijacked it and changed it into a "Communist / Criminal" movement.

This is how the Right and the Left control everyone else, with subterfuge and cunning artifice.

The Tea Party controls all.

Just 10 members in congress.

But we control the House, Senate and the White House.

We also eat small kittehs.

for this very reason i held out hope that a united front,
both tea party and OWS would realise that we are in this togther,

and both work for liberty and justice for all.

left right is fake

unite or be enslaved as we argue TP VS OWS

Clever question.

However, it is clear that anyone could do that and claim false association with whatever movement in order to "make it look bad".

But that is ad hominem and irrelevant, and amounts to petty character assassination of the messenger.
For all I know, you or any Republican could have been out there doing that claiming to be OWS to make them look bad. The motive is there...

In reality this all boils down to politics.
And I am convinced that people are more interested in controlling other people's opinions than they are interested in what those actual opinions are about.

If you take even a basic cursory examination of either parties official platforms you will quickly realize they are bias, out of context, and misleading "catch phrases", "hype", "sound bites", etc. There is no real substance to either party intellectually or philosophically. This is apparent to anyone with half a clue.

Let's say person X is a "Communist" in political beliefs.

Let's say that person Y, who claims "Communist allegiance", craps on a police car.

So you are saying that Person X should be prevented from ever protesting and claiming their ideology in public, because person Y who claimed association, did something unrelated ?

Interesting.

Why wouldn't you just suggest Person Y be cited for an offense, and ignore Person X as irrelevant?

Are you trying to claim that OWS is an organized criminal syndicate? That is the only legitimate way you will be able to connect person X to person Y.

Having people that sign the NDAA in congress are absolutely pointless. That does nothing to help anyone. It does everything to hurt everyone. Congrats on having fascists in congress..



The Tea Party doesn't own suits unless they are bought by the Koch Brothers. Their natural dress is 20 year old jeans with dirt stains all over them topped with john deere hats.

"We" would be united if it wasn't for people being really susceptible to misleading terminology, half - truths, catch phrases, petty differences, etc.

And anyone who pays attention knows that the Republican, Democrat, Corporate, Pentagon, International, etc entities have psyop agents out there spreading complete bunk claiming it's legitimate information. Like from a hundred directions (tv, net, radio, work, school, etc).

They don't make it easy.

I’m not going to play the analogy game.

Simple question…IS THIS OCCUPY?




IS THIS THE TEA PARTY?


I think it’s clear by the way the two groups conduct themselves which one is capable of the atrocities I described.

I now do the same for you.

I challenge you to a debate on Tea Party versus Occupy.
