    I agree they didn't last very long, but perhaps that speaks more for the fact they had no large organization controlling them from the top down like its counterpart.

    The OWS was not really rooted on any one central issue or cause. Past movements like the Women's Rights, Labor movement, Gay Rights, and the Civil Rights movement all had a definite message that was focused and well organized. Those movements did spark change.

    Comparing an outfit which no longer exists to one which does isn't 'fair and balanced'.

    The Weather underground has been gone for like over forty years now. Perhaps we should be worried about August Spies and Albert Parsons as well?

    The Tea Party is the best thing that has ever happened to the United States. If you are against the Tea Party, then you are wrong. There is no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

    The Weathermen obviously...they used actual violent terrorism, something I've never heard the Tea Party accused of.

    actually their views are pretty consistent with what founded the country. Its only radical because so many americans have become wards of the state suckling on the public teat.

    The Tea Party is worse by default, since it's the only one still around.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
