    You know, there was a grass roots movement called Occupy Wall St. came into the news a while ago. Seems that people found out if you want to mobilize others who think like you do, getting on social media and Twitter is a really good way to organize.

    It seems that their passion for organizing for a good cause has expanded to yet another arena.............................

    The East Coast and those affected by Hurricane Sandy........................

    Where FEMA Fell Short, Occupy Sandy Was There - NYTimes.com

    Still think the OWS movement is nothing more than a bunch of bums looking for a handout?

    Seems to me it's a bunch of people who care about this country offering their hands out in help.

    The Occupy movement is a stark contrast to the Teapartiers. The first group is fighting for the good of all and an end to government corruption, while the latter wants the kind of government corruption that works for them.

    Occupy Wall St. was doing the looting.

    Looters Arrested in Post-Superstorm Spree - ABC News

    But Twitter would not reveal the identity of a suspected ex-Occupy Wall Street protester who had encouraged looting in downtown Manhattan, where there was no power, according to the New York Post. Browne told the Post that Twitter’s decision was “not civic-minded, but not surprising either.” Twitter did not respond to requests for comment from ABC News.

    Did the OS group crap on the streets, leave dirty needles strewn about, steal from one another, commit a few rapes, etc., etc.? If not, they're not of the OWS pedigree.

    Really? Because many of those who are currently volunteering to help have photos of themselves while they were protesting at Zuccoti park.

    Sorry, but the OWS isn't quite the bunch of freaks you think they are.

    Someone from a group you right wingers disagree vehemently with does something good that is helping a lot of people, and all you can do is crap all over their good deeds?

    I've yet to hear about those identifying themselves as "tea party" types going out and helping others.

    If OWS can rally people to help, why can't the tea party?
