    If they're "people" then the Tea Party are "people".

    They're people with an agenda.

    It appears that they want us to take more from the greedy rich people and greedy corporations. But otherwise, we are running out of OPM, and it scares the crap outta them.

    I think we've all seen the picture with the Tea Party protestors and the captions pointing to the government funded things around them. That, like this picture, is just a stupid strawman that doesn't really go against the views of most of the people there.

    I never said the Tea Party weren't people either.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Yeah, and nobody will be able to buy those things those corporations sell unless corporations both employ them and pay wages to them fair enough so they can afford them.

    That's irony too.

    Re: Who are the OWS protestors?

    I undertand that the government considers corporations to be similar to people for tax purposes and law enforcement. But does it not seem strange to hear and see so many people who also think of corporations the same way? I mean, I understand if a particular corporation does something wrong, it's more convenient to say "that corporation" or maybe "those corporations", did something wrong. But, it's a little like saying "New York is rude" (sorry, NY, just an example). New York can't be rude - the people of New York can be. They can also be noble. They can be good. They can be greedy or charitable.

    Corporations are made up of people. Without people, they don't exist except on paper. Corporations are made up of their employees, their CEO's, their stockholders. Picketing "corporations" is really odd - they don't have eyes to see or ears to hear. If somebody wants to say "rich people should pay more taxes", I can understand where that comes from. But to say that "corporations" should pay more taxes - that doesn't make any sense to me. That's like saying "New York should pay more income taxes". There are poor and wealthy people who are part of corporations. Taxing a paper entity is just a longstanding government gimmick that affects every employee and customer.

    Kinda like the picture of tea partiers demonstrating against government spending in a public park.

    When your have to use a retarded picture to fail to make a point, you fail.

    When you live in a capitalist society its hard to not have anything that isnt made by a corporation...

    As Lenin said, "We will hang the capitalists with the rope they sell us."
