    So are you saying that the OWS tend to be those who disobey the law and disregard personal responsibility?

    So Occupiers tend to be those who espouse DISobeying the law and neglecting personal responsibility?

    I agree with you.

    Yes, there is a big difference. I just find it somewhat interesting that they choose to land on the opposite side of responsibility rather than insisting that all future protests require a permit and fees and such.

    yeah, just like all the Tea-Baggers who think the Federal income-tax is illegal.

They're the exception, though.
    It's common knowledge that the OWS (the original one) is getting massive donations of food, items needed to camp out and money from various people and organizations. I assumed everyone with any interest in this topic knew that.

    I know A LOT of tea partiers and no one I know thinks the federal income tax is illegal. That's just dumb.

    Because that would be the wrong position to take. One does NOT have to get permission to exercise their constitutional rights here. Yes, they erred in going along with it in the first place because their message was more important that a fight with city hall.

    It is NOT irresponsible to say that you are not going to pay to exercise your rights.

    Just like Thunder is simply a lot of noise.

    More partisan games, just what I'd expect from the Tea Party.

    Too bad the tea partiers never thought to actually join the occupy protestors. That would be a force to be reckoned with.
