    1. No, that’s what they were pushing their legislators to do, figuratively speaking at least.
      Plus they were distracted by all those shiny decorated buses.

    2. No, the docility of the Tea Party, a wholy owned subsidiary of Koch Industries (via Americans for Prosperity) doesn’t generate much of a reaction from the authorities. The police are kind of like shepherds. Not much for them to do except direct old, white people to the port-o-potties.

      But Occupy has certainly had their share of police assauts and brutality. You see, that’s what happens when an authetic revolutionary force makes itself known. It challenges the established order and elicits all kinds of lies and bullshit.

      The Tea Party is over. Time for the revolution.

    3. And the reek of Tea Party jealously is wafting from your post. Occupy has mustered more support and gained more notoriety in spite of being trashed repeatedly by the MSM. The Tea Party had their own fucking network A network which devoted considerable time, money and staffing to ensure it achieved maximum coverage despite the minimal support the “movement” had.

      1. That’s because they’re the descendants of John Adams and the American royalists.

        The fundamental article of my political creed is that despotism, or unlimited sovereignty, or absolute power, is the same in a majority of a popular assembly, an aristocratical council, an oligarchical junto, and a single emperor. Equally arbitrary, cruel, bloody, and in every respect diabolical.

        John Adams, Letter to Thomas Jefferson (13 November 1815)


        I do not say that democracy has been more pernicious on the whole, and in the long run, than monarchy or aristocracy. Democracy has never been and never can be so durable as aristocracy or monarchy; but while it lasts, it is more bloody than either.

        John Adams, Letter to John Taylor (1814)

        The Tea Party, like the libertarians, don’t really believe in democracy.

  1. Brillant! Is this yesterday or today in Oakland?- there is noting new on their website- but they have more important work with boots on the ground.
