What the combination of the two tells me is that people are frustrated at the government, but even more of them are frustrated both with the government AND with the corporations. Political agendas that don't tackle the corporations only speak to half the problem IMO.
    Oh, show us where the Tea Party wants to make boogie men of corporations?

    Come on. A link or something. You put it out there that both OWS and the Tea Party want to bring down corporations?

    Show us where the Tea Party is calling for that?

    Because it's BS.

    Uh no... You aren't thinking hard enough. Re-read my post, sit and think on it for a minute. As hard as you can. Then come back and tell me what argument I am making. I'm completely sure you can figure it out if you try really, really, hard.

    No, you lumped them together, which is unadulterated bull.

    I still want to know what the "1%" has they you once had, and they took from you.

    Be specific.

    That's why I said they are more more popular than the Tea Party. It is only natural, because pretty much everyone dislikes corporatism.

    However, altough I share their views on corporatism. I do not agree on the remainder of their views and think such protests are dangerous. Fact is, living standards in the US are high, and the ones protesting are not poor. People need to get more sensible expectations.
