Forum Post: OWS counter-protest signs against Tea Party

Apparently, the teabaggers are planning a counter-protest to Occupy Denver this Saturday?

Any ideas for nifty counter-protest signs? How about:

"Tea Partiers -- Stop drinking from the Koch machine!"

Any others?

why you protesting yourself

stop pretesting yourself.

the whole thing reminds me of when i was a child and my uncle would take my hands and hit me with them and say, stop hitting yourself.

OWS is more to the point of taxation without representation than the TP. In 1774 the founding fathers wrote the Suffolk Resolves starting from a meeting in a tavern in Massachusetts and that led to the Declaration Of Independence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffolk_Resolves).

The 99% Declaration is the modern day equivalent

Clearly starved for media attention... I guess they have to picket OWS events to get on television these days.

Someone please post what kind of turnout they get relative to Occupy, I'm curious.

Whatever it is, you know who will get the coverage. I actually watched the TV give "equal time" to two Liberty Square protesters who opposed OWS. They spoke to one of the 2000+ OWS supporters, and BOTH of the 2 opponents!

The Tea Party wants the best teachers, the best firemen, and the best police and they don't want to pay for it.

i am sure they want the best ... just not the union corrupted ones.

seriously, how can ows be against corruption and pro public unions!?!

i see the problem with public unions, but to say they are corrupt because they learned the jig that Americans dance to, better than you. is kinda short sighted. no? form your own unions. oh yeah, you did. are you a tea party member?

He doesn't realize that his anti-unionism is the result of 40 years of union bashing propaganda the monied interests have waged against his own best interests in order to shore up their profits or power.

Public, as well as private unions have won him every workplace right he currently enjoys. Without the sweat and real blood shed by union members, the 40 hr week, time and a half, child labor laws, worker safety rules, 401K plans, health benefits, and so much more, would not be a part of any worker's rights or expectations today in any job anywhere. Instead of gratitude, he chooses to focus on largely mythical corruption.
