    [QUOTE=jetswin;4256949]ahh, a man who makes sense...I'm sure not all will allow themselves to admit you are 100% correct[/QUOTE]

    The Tea Party crying about 10k and being audited is a good a PR move? They look desperate and they confirm why they do not matter anymore.

    The liberal media are the ones that began the comparison of the unwashed mass of drug addicts and serial non workers to the tea Party. In the first sentence highlighted by the op, it is clearly pointed out that the Tea Party was charged 10k and the other group was allowed to gather and pollute free of charge.

    seems a double standard to the naked eye

    I'm not sure of that...the Tea Party has dropped the ball I guess and lost some steam, the ows has every lefty blindly supporting their unknown or fly by night causes. The bottom line is the TP obeys laws, ows only if it suits them, makes it easier for people to chose sides imho.

    2 different paths and both paths have the same ending. Tea Party vs. OWS is a funny argument, both feel they have accomplished somthing, the OWS has been a global movement and yet the Tea Party claims they matter more? In the end it doesn't matter, they both accomplished nothing because money matters in politics.

    ows a global movement? lol they set up shanty towns around a few cities, and trust me they were shanty towns as I ran into several this past fall. They were a bunch of people with nothing to do except stick their hands out. Of course BO built his platform on that so that empowered them.

    The Tea Party is a legitimate political party, there really is no comparision...except for demonstrations and they got the short stick.

    I was speaking on what both of these groups think of themselves. I am not arguing what one is and one is not.

    Tea Party is a legitimate political party? Good to know.

    whatever, focus on the minutia to make a point, like every good lib. Avoid the big picture and look for tiny mistake and steer away from the main subject. You both know what I meant.

    This actually makes sense. Who do we try to charge?

    1. Decent law abiding ctizens.

    2. Crazy, non-bathing anarchists who will most likely tell them to GFY.

    No. Brainer. :rolleyes:
