    The following images show the vast differences between the:

    FLEA Party

    TEA Party.
    Tea Party | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    One group knows their history and respect for the millions of Americans that died or were wounded for our country and show it in the manner they display Stars and Stripes"!

    One group is more concerned about themselves then others.

    One group evidently failed to teach the other group
    "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you!"

    One group appeals to people that appreciate the U.S.A. as an exceptional country made up of even more exceptional people that came from other countries to the U.S.A. to fulfill their exceptionalism!

    One group has NO idea what that means!

    When lacking a valid argument, take refuge in patriotism.

    This was to show the differences between the two.

    And what though is wrong with "patriotism"?
    You obviously have NO knowledge of the U.S.A. and consider yourself too elitist to be bothered with "patriotism".
    People that don't believe in something generally fall for anything!

    I generally find that worrying about a flag serves less of a purpose than focusing on policy decisions.

    Where was the parenting of these kids in OWS? We can sit here and talk about how greedy and uninformed they are, but whose fault was it? WE are the parents. Did we give our kids more than we had? We sure did. Did you do more chores and did your parents expect more out of you than you did when bringing up your children? Probably.
    I would have never talked back to my parents and listen to these kids now. Big difference. Why did we forget to teach RESPECT? MY parenets expected me to go to school a [perform well. My parents expected me to go t college. Did you expect that from your kids?

    These can be the generation of lost morals, ambition, forgetting they have to work for what they want. How do they expect to meet any goals in
    their life itf they are waiting for the 1% to provide for them.

    I think our generation, 50-65 years old blew it,

    I normally agree, but when trying to make a judgement about the Motivations of both Groups, I think the way they both Treat the Flag is a valid Observation.

    The left attacks the Tea Party for supposedly Hating government and not wanting any simply because they want to limit its power. Then they hold rallies walking hand in hand with Anarchist, and people who truly do hate government, and this country.

    The Skin heads have even joined them, After all Skin heads hate Jews, and they believe Jews control the whole world through banks, it was a good fit for them.

    When you preach hate, which in the end, is what OWS is preaching. Hate for Wall street, hate for Cooperation's, hate for the Rich. You are sure to be joined by other Haters.

    While, it disgusts me that anyone would treat any symbol of our nation poorly, this is hardly the most important problem here. In fact, it's a distraction.

    A person may desecrate the flag but have a compelling argument and reason. A person may honor the flag and want to kill people. Respect for the flag, doesn't hurt, but isnt a rational argument for a rational position. It's a strict appeal to emotion. How is that going to help the debate? Emotion does not dictate truth.
