f you’re speaking from experience then I presume you’ve been to both.
I've been to 4 Tea Party rallies because I wanted to check them out (2 in Chicago and 2 downstate). Everyone was courteous with the exception of one liberal interloper who was attempting to create a stir. He was ushered out!
Do I detect not so friendly competition here?
There is no competition. The many vagrants on Wall Street are turning off the independent voters and the difference between the two groups is like day-and-night. Tea Party people are almost boring compared to the violence strewn 'occupiers of Wall Street'. No real Tea Party people had to be arrested (the person showing the Hitler sign who was swearing turned out to be a Obama supporter and not a Tea Party member). Quite a contrast to the arrests made on Wall Street. Let the Wall Street protesters continue to embarrass themselves to the rest of America.
the backs of the "poor"?
Still using this old false tired bromide eh? The poor don't pay taxes and as you've already been taught, the upper 10% pay for almost everything.
1% vs. 99%
This attempt at 'class warfare' is so phoney that I'm surprised that you buy into it. Just a hint; most of the so-called 99% don't agree with the protesters message (such as it is) nor with the mangy gatherings of these protesters. Let's see if they are out during the winter months.
I have to laugh at the naive messages of the protesters. They hate "Wall Street" yet Obama's chief of staff and his whole economic team is from "Wall Street". He also received more funding from "Wall Street" then his Republican opponent. Are these protesters aware of that? What a joke....
