    This is what i find disturbing. These peaceful protesters came to protest a crime, yes a crime that was committed by the banks and wall-street, and they the protesters are portrayed as the criminals are ****ing kidding me? I mean people this is what democracy looks like!

    Not at all, however, to me this is threatening violence:

    I don't pretend these two examples represent all conservatives, not even all tea party members, but I have met two who carry a gun like this and speak about being their consitutional right to shoot representatives who don't do what THEY want. The thought process bothers me.

    The thought process should bother you it is scary. That being said it seems that by pointing to extremes you tarnish the entire group. In the 60s, there a group called the SDS. An anti-war leftist group that actually did physical harm to people. Back then I didn't think it was fair to brand all anti-war folks, myself included with a fringe group. Is was used then by conservatives to smear the entire anti-war movement. Seems like a mirror image of what the left is now doing.

    I never claimed the example represents all conservatives, just that the example is more threatening of violence than any example from the Wall Street protest.

    I know. I was largely agreeing with you while noting I did not have a large enough sample.

    BS. How would you have any idea how the Tea Party Movement is funded? My wife and I have had three Tea Party meetings in our house.....we sponsored those dinners/meeting. My family, along with dozens of friends, went to DC on both 9-12 Tea Party rallies and nobody paid us anything to do that. We, along with a few more million people, contribute money to run the Tea Party organizations.

    Since you made the claim, prove it. Show us how much money has been spent by the Tea Party movement and show us how much was funded by PAC's. You do have this information, don't you?
