    And he gives no link. My guess is it was manufactured by Faux News!

    And yours was dismissed when it had a heading called "what the politicians are saying" and Michael Moore was quoted.

    Oh, I'm sure a Tea Party lover would say something negative about Republicans/conservatives - Bwahaha! give me a break!

    And the same poll says that 31% think the Tea Party has been good thing for America, while only 25% think OWS has.

    Anyone that would post something from a web site called Dangerous Minds and then try to make fun of the source of someone else's post doesn't have much standing.

    No, I won't give you a break when you continue to lie.

    Obama and dems in Congress didn't agree during the 2010 Bush tax cut extension last December.

    Grass roots ???? That's a funny one:

    On the surface, the "Occupy the Kochs: Guerilla Drive-In" event looked like any other "Occupy" movement protest against the proverbial 1 percent of the population who hold the nation's wealth.

    But a confederation of long-established progressive political advocacy groups -- the Campaign for America's Future, Campaign for Community Change, Common Cause, Health Care for America Now and the aptly named Other 98% -- were behind Friday's protest.

    Left, right, right, left...most people are somewhere in the middle, perhaps leaning a bit one way or the other depending on the issue. From what I read here, everyone wants to bottle everyone up into two groups when this is not how it is in reality. OWS is a "people" thing. While I personally think they are not all that bright, they have the right to stand in the rain if they wish and protest whatever they want to protest. We, as clear thinking individuals will remain at home, safe and warm and laugh at them on the news. years from now, they will sit back watching the next group of people doing something similar. wall street will remain intact, banks will continue to provide banking, rich people will still be rich and they will have wasted days off their lives for nothing. Have at it...I have better things to do.
