What an amazing contrast and yeah, I agree with what you're saying. The TEA Party protests were limp wristed and ineffectual at best. You don't just sit in your lawn chairs and expect things to change by themselves.Unfortunately, these misguided young people are fighting on the wrong side.Unless we actively stand up for our ideals, we will forever be unrepresented.The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. - Thomas Jefferson.
And if the Tea Party folks even considered talking about the things the Occupy folks did, like damaging cities and businesses the MSM would trumpet that fact over and over and over and over....The sad part is that most of us Tea Party type folks COULD do all that. We are, for the most part, law abiding citizens. But should we decide not to be, most of us are capable of being VERY dangerous. Not just talk about it. Unlike the Occupy rabble, who are all talk and no action.
Hehehe, I just love the "watering the hippies" pic.
