Most of us are thoroughly interested in the Wall St. Occupation, whether it's as a supporter, participant, or dissenter.  It's catchy, and catching, clearly spreading like a seasonal shift, throughout the nation.
Today's intention of cleaning up the park( Denver's endeavor  is long underway), has been stalled for now, but the point is that it is in the very least, annoying enough to induce such a thought.  Douglas Rushkoff, via CNN, states, "Anyone who says he has no idea what these folks are protesting is not being truthful. Whether we agree with them or not, we all know what they are upset about, and we all know that there are investment bankers working on Wall Street getting richer while things for most of the rest of us are getting tougher. What upsets banking's defenders and politicians alike is the refusal of this movement to state its terms or set its goals in the traditional language of campaigns."
Exactly.   How the absurd comments demanding a more specific demand, are even coming out of mouths, is beyond me.  Tea Party members are crazed by the idea losing first place in  the grass-root movement competition?  REALLY, wait, REALLY?  The non-issue of the century has just arrived, and what is their action?  To seek financial support ostensibly to fight this most recent crop of  dirty hippies, by running background checks, and basically using all the old FBI techniques from the sixties and seventies.  If you look at the Tea Party membership, included are plenty of people who are not wealthy, have serious religious convictions that they feel are being violated, and look for the very same turnover of the system that the OWS movement advocates.   Divisions, divisions, always the saddest part of the human experience. Let's not let the media or the ignorant continue to create chasms of mistrust.
