    Police in Madison estimated yesterday's protest (3/13/11) as the biggest in city history, eclipsing "even those during the Vietnam War."

    "But yesterday's rally in Madison is noteworthy because at 85,000-100,000, it was bigger than the biggest tea party protest, the September 12, 2009 rally in Washington, D.C., which turned out only an estimated 60,000-70,000."

    Which side are you on?

    Scott Walker and Wall Street?

    Or Main Street?

    The TEA Parties are Main Street, you moron.

    Still, please do carry on making a total fool of yourself. It's fun to watch.

    No, the tea parties are Conservabuddies. They're not "main street" same way as the Left is not "main street."

    Charles AND David are Main Street?

    Whatever populist impulse the Tea Party may have started with was bought off by Americans for Prosperity.

    But...you already knew that...right?

    Who is behind the assault on the US middle class?

    "While Walker's assault on his state's public employees' labor rights is the most visible assault on the middle class, conservative governments across the country are waging similar campaigns.

    "In Ohio, Gov. John Kasich (R) is backing legislation similar to Wisconsin's in that would gut the organizing rights of public employees. Kasich has already killed his state's federally-funded high-speed rail project, which will cost Ohio $400 million in infrastructure investment and thousands of jobs.

    "While he justifies these moves by claiming he's tackling his state's deficit, he also is championing a slew of tax cuts that could actually double the state's deficit."

    As if these winger sites have any CLUE about main street... it's an agenda they are concerned with, no more and no less

    There's a couple problems with this post.

    The Rally in DC was not a TEA party rally and it was over 100k. Everyone with any sense of the truth knows that.

    TP people are mostly working class, making them part of Main St.

    The site you linked in blatantly biased, so it is a questionable source.

    Do you have a link to people that count crowds as part of thier profession?

    "Main Street" is made up of people, individuals, with their own views on politics - some will be conservatives, others will be liberal, most will be more concerned with keeping their business afloat, putting food on the table, and keeping their homes, than caring about much else.

    This ridiculous bitching about "Main St" or "Wall St" or any other attempt to lump people into groups is pathetic.

    Maybe you should link to some sites with a clue to Main Street?

    National site | Americans for Prosperity
