Pretty much makes your post look like "envy" in action.

    The OWS protest got jack **** for media coverage from pretty much anyone for a looooonnng time. Unlike the tea party that got promoted by fox nonstop before each gathering telling people where to go and when to be there and they will put you on the camera all while they got busted rallying the crowd and instructing them on how to act on camera. Then after that, any 3 teabaggers at a town hall got media coverage from all news agencies far more than any coverage the OWS movement has gotten yet.

    What you do see is what Ghandi used to say;

    First they ignore you,
    Then they laugh at you,
    Then they fight you,
    Then you win.

    Right now we are at the "they laugh at you" part and moving into "then they fight you" part.
    Their own funding? There was a call last week for donations of necessary provisions to be donated to them...LOL!!

    I'm not a big fan of Aristocracy and those who feel they are superior simply because of birth.
    Nor am I, but, this is still a free country where such a thing isn't illegal and in no way should be illegal.

    These clown that are a part of the occupation want to make success punishable and that goes against my grain big time. They're never going to stop complaining about, "corporate greed", no matter how small the profits get. Not until there is no profit in the private sector, will they be satisfied.

    So making accusations without legitimate proof is really a partisan and fruitless endeavor... when proof is available, we (those who want facts to back up their opinions) we get to review them and then make a decision. Those who want to push an agenda, be it a negative one against the Tea Party or against OWS, push accusations based on nothing but their belief. Beliefs are dealt with in the Religion forum you see...
    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.

    I did find a link to a realease from Koch industries that acknowledges Koch money goes to the Tea Party.

    Folks have been backing candidates/issues behind the scenes forever, but various records resulted in disclosure of who is backing what.

    CU puts an end to that.

    I knew there had to be some substantiation of Koch backing, otherwise they would have filed a cease and desist.

    Frankly didn't know anybody had any doubts at this point. Or had any interest in denying it.

    And the link? You seem to have forgotten to post it.
