    It's fair to say that both OWS and Tea Party had valid points and valid anger. The lengths people go to to demonize the entirety of either just to ignore the message they brought is rather stupid.

People complain about the wealthy having too much money then line up at wal-mart, mcdonalds, starbucks ect. Kraft/Marlboro are huge as hell but the 99ers kitchens are stocked with their products.

    They want to fight back, they need to do it financially. Stop supporting businesses who's views arent in line with theirs. Otherwise they are just a bunch of loud mouthed, crying hypocrites.
    Somewhere along the way you missed the whole wealth inequality issue. If they had wealth to fight with, they wouldn't need to protest against wealth inequality.

    No, we gave a man our money because he promised to create jobs in this country. It was called trickle down economics. Only problem was the wealth didn't trickle down, it gushed up. This movement is about correcting that situation.

    No one is asking the rich to be poor. What are you talking about? Are you under the impression there were no rich people when we had progressive taxes?

    Its simply a matter of economics for those smart enough to understand it like Buffett and the 400 millionaires that petitioned Congress to raise the taxes for the wealthy. If too much wealth is concentrated at the top like its now, and was just before the Great Depression, than consumers can't create the demand necessary to stimulate production.

    It was comparing one protest group against another. What's false about that?

    And the message of the OWS is that Wall Street did some bad things.

    Okay, we get it and hopefully the Democrat Mayor of New, the Democratic governor of New York State, and the Democratic President of the USA got it too.

    They can now stop trashing property, both public and private, and all go home.

    Unlike the OWS protests there were never any rapes at any Tea Party protest, nor were there ever any mass arrests.

    Is the trend now to name the political affiliation of any person suspected of a crime or is this behavior exclusive to San Diego?

    Yeah, sure. 400 hypocrites.

    Is that what you were told caused the great depression?

    But you want the rich to have less money, don't you?
