I disagree. OccupyTampa had quite a few at the beginning, because they supported bringing justice to wallst and the fed.

Then the media shoved us into a far left corner, and got Fox news to start attacking us, and the rest is the usual history- a divided country.

We were strongest at the beginning. It was incredible. Since then, most of the real chnage makers have left, along with any bo-partisan support.

The media runs this country. And the last thing they want is a unified, information sharing public working together. Because if we did that, they would collpase in no time flat.

ok i can see it that way. but they are still disgusting, nasty people; pig people. to me, anything is worth not being associated with them in any way, even in contrast to them.

pig people

Then you are probably just as guilty of MSM projection as the Tea that claim that OWS is nothing but a bunch of lazy brats who want everything for free.

Pig people? Why do you consider the members Tea Party beneath you? Why is restoring the Constitution so distasteful to you?

I would think that for a group who's goals/views are so broad (anti-corruption, anti-corporate greed, pro-environment, pro-LBGTSWERWR rights, anti-fur, higher taxes on the rich, free education, etc)* that OWS would embrace the Tea Party.

...I mean, both groups believe there needs to be change. At least you do have common grounds on the whole "anti-bailout" thing.

*(honestly, I've seen so many things proposed by individual supporters, I would think you guys would be able collectively agree to a set number of objectives/demands by now)

it means that we've reached a consensus that the government is screwing all of us and pretending to be of a particular party but is now exposed?
