The left finally has its own version of the TEA PARTY - minus the corporate backing and misspelled signs. We Are The 99% Woman: I knew my PH D. in English would come in handy. Now the unemployed creative class needs to hone the messaging for them. OCCUPY Woman #2: Our demand is that you stop demanding that we come up with demands! Fighting the corporate state is great, but it must be accompanied by grooming. Homeless Man: Only one of us has been sleeping in this park since before it was cool. So drop the dumpster-diver look... And slip into something the media finds respectable!

Another name, and perhaps more apt, for narrow minded is pinhead.

These protesters need to understand that what’s best for multinational corporate conglomerate ececutives is what’s best for America. If these protesters really loved their counry they would be thankful for being laid off of work and having their retirement plans wiped out by short sighted greedy white collar criminals. They should also be thankful that those same executives get 5 and 6 figure bonuses for the way they successfully destroyed 40 yrs of retirement planning.

The Tea Party wouldn’t be so “free” to protest if their government entitlements and government subsidies for the fuel that warms their beige bottoms went away. The tea party movement was co-opted early on by Dick Army and subsequently funded by the Koch Bros. and ilk. Yeah, “free,” free to be clueless boobs for corp america.

The “occupy Wall Street” folks have many messages based on their individual conditions and concerns. Those with college degrees laid off because of “reorganization” that sent their HIGH END jobs overseas are different than the production line workers laid off, who are different than the 70 year old retiree who lost both his pension AND medical coverage.
Tea party folks had one line- no taxes- no regulations. What I found interesting in the crowds when I attended several rallies (to observe) was that the vast majority were “right-wingers” who were either government employees, or government retirees, or employees of our taxing district employers!! The crowds were a sign waving (yes, misspelled) marching, oxymoron! The one thing they had in common was that they were all Rush Limbaugh fans! REALLY!
The TEA party events were all heavily orchestrated, like ants. The “Wall Street occupiers” are coming in from all over with their OWN messages and grievances- just what the Constitution declares as our fundamental right as individuals, it is “different”.

Wow. When will you all realize you’re being played by the owners of this country? The mirages that are called the “left” and the “right” are just bumpers sticker words and phony philosophy that the rulers of this world gave you so that you could think (foolishly) that you have decisions to make and “rights” to have, etc. You have very little. You all, excuse me, we all are owned by a select group of people who know how to keep us at each others’ throats just long enough for them to take all the goodies and leave us with the weeds and their messes to clean up. Wake up, all of you. There is no “side” that is better. It’s all a mirage. Your opinions mean and do nothing.

If you lived out of a backpack you might need some grooming too. But they know their main demands. And they are not breaking or doing anything wrong. They are practising free speech, and democracy and assembling peacefully!
