    This thread has surely been done already, but since I avoid this site due to the large degree of liberal mental patients around here, I probably missed it. But, OWS vs TP, compare and contrast.

    To start, the left wing OWS has become violent and disruptive. Thats the first difference.

    I don't think there is a VS there. they have more in common than not. Both are tired of being F'd by gov and big business.

    Hmmm....maybe. Both are angry at what they believe is corruption. I think the OWS people have more desire to be very intangled with the government in an attempt to make the world fair. Whereas the TP folks really want to be as far from the gov't tentacles as possible.

    Please explain how they've been "violent". I seem to have missed that? Are they packing weapons and saying such things as "ballots or bullets"...? How many heads have the stomped?

    The CORRUPTION starts in Washington D.C.--not on two blocks of lower Manhattan. And that's why they're totally confused.

    The Federal Government regulates WALL STREET.

    Now which is it? Are they incoherent lacking a true cause or do they think there is not enough government? Funny, out of the littany of claims I have heard not one had to do with the size of government. You are not a spin meister are ya?
