Interesting to see the difference in coverage between that local Fox News station and MSNBC, which seems to portray the 'occupiers' as heroes and freedom-fighters.

Default Disrupt Wall Street Getting Worse. Unions Back Them.

Time to re-assess and push back on unions.

All of these protesters and their supporters are not our friends.


Working people need to stand up and tell these hippies to go to Hell.

The Unions are said to be waiting for the protesters to arrive.

OWS is a completely grass roots movement where the tea party was astroturf as can be. Their events were just sitting around watching Palin and Beck talk, then just go home when they are done. The tea party gatherings were mostly a concert or entertainment event to drum up support for a tea party candidate, and not an actual rally or protest.
Holy smokes batman. I missed the music and stages and performances at the weekly tea party I attended ( for over a year) and I missed the entertainment?

Wait was me being called a racist and all sorts a names to be considered entertainment?

ABC news just did an interview with some protesters to find out what they wanted. It was hilarious, the best was the lady who wanted to eradicate males.

I've always thought these people were idiots.

Camping out in the streets isn't going to change banks, corrupt people, "the system", etc. And you're also losing money by camping out and NOT WORKING. It's truly amazes me anyone supports this. If you want to change things, great, find a good way to do it because this isn't going to work.
