    The occupy movement is the pinnacle of the "Useful Idiots" line of thinking. Get a bunch of morons to believe they are doing something, stir up a revolution, gain political power. The OWS fools don't realize is, their end goals, would be tyrrany.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    If I had said that, it would'nt be remotely true. See the Tea Party wants LESS Government, less Bureacrats taking care of us and making decisions for us. The OWSer's want MORE Government, want more STUFF taken from others and given to them. Their gaol of "Fairness" means someone (Government), must use force to TAKE from those that have and give it to those that do not.

    And Thunder...

    Do you know who started the OWS movement? It wasn't grass roots, it was well organized and planned, by folks who want MORE Government.

    How 'Occupy Wall Street' Started and Spread - US News and World Report

    Follow the timeline, the backers. It's pretty obvious to all but the most partisan or obtuse that OWS was astroturf of the highest order, all to benefit left leaning powers. Funny thing is, they created a monster that is going to bite them in the ass.

    Oh, so it wouldn't be true because what? They're right wing like yourself? Lol.

    Nonsense. The Tea Party is an useful front of people who don't want to be labelled Republicans but still support all the same big government Republicans. You notice how not a SINGLE member of the house elected by the Tea Party has actually carried out on any important points of their "small government" agendas?

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I say their "person of the year" pick is quasi tabloid-ism.

    Its just like what the Pulitizer Peace Prize has gotten to be...a waste of time
