    Huh... so you're saying the protestors have no actual written and official "demands" for their 19 day protest. So their point is, they have to find a point for demonstrating. That sounds about right...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If you want information on the Tea Party you should go to their website.
    It's dishonest for you to whine about misspelt signs by OWS protestors, but insist that teabagger signs don't represent the teabaggers

    No one really knows is what I'm getting out of this thread. They've been down there for 19 days without a coherent purpose.

    it hasn't played out yet. As of now it started with the "professional protester" crowd and is morphing into a larger crowd. It's true grassroots, like the Tea Party was before Koch and Army took over and the early tea party was just angry at bailouts. There wasn't a full list of demands. Now the tea party is just ultra conservative but it's hard to point out where this is going.

    In fact Charlie Rangel tried to speak there and was yelled at by protesters that he's part of the problem.

    The only thing that's come across is the income inequality in this country.
