    I'm thinking of going down to see for myself. That was how I learned more about the Tea Party. Went in person.
    Maybe take a camera, ask people questions and videotape their answers.
    My daughter is curious about it because she remembers studying the
    Civil Rights movements of the 60's and this reminds her of that. Here in Vegas, there should be no danger of violence etc... We don't even have people in tents.

    But then, it's down to about 65 degrees and my lovely bride (Latina) gets
    cold the moment it drops below 80.
    Still, I am not one to judge things solely by what I see in the media and our neighbor (who invited me) is a 50 year old business owner. Not exactly the young hippie type portrayed by the biased Right Wing Media.

    (I love using that phrase! Kinda reverses the victim mentality of the ConservaRepubs!)

    Yeah, pretty much the same thing I thought about all those whackjobs in the Tea Party before I went to see for myself.

    by accident I saw them, tried to find someone to talk to, nobody was available, too busy chanting nonsense in my opinion.

    and people were smoking weed, and it was lame to say the least

    they barely know what they want

    maybe a utopian left wing, west europe society?

    honestly, i tried to have an open mind, but if you go, dont expect honest debate or conversation, just parrots

    Sure,

    maybe you will see people are united because they are unhappy across the spectrum. You will not find a coherent message that will accepted by all. Unless of course it is so general its easy to say. Until our lawmakers are confronted this is an exercise in futility

    If you are in the NYC area I would think that with the bad weather today (it's snowing) they might have packed up and gone back home to their parents house where the live in maid will see to their every needs.

    As a matter of course the lawmakers SHOULD be smacked down...especially the Senate led by Dingy Harry Reid that is sitting on so much legislation from the house that another Library of Congress should be opened.

    And a NOTE to the OWS idiots? No buying coats, sweaters, boots, shoes, caps, Sleeping bags, tents, or anything else manufactured by evil coporate Americans...lest you show what hypocrites you are.

    Tough it out as our patriots did at Valley Forge!
