 I am all for the Occupy Movement because after the government bailed out the banks & corporations; BO told them to cut the waste...Well the only "waste" that the heads of those banks & corporations cut were the hard working people and not the lazy CEOs who just took the money & spent it on their mansions, cars, & other things. Plus the banks & corprorations stopped helping the people who needed help with their mortgage payments(Banks obviously) & now most of their mortgages are higher than the cost of their homes! BO supposedly has made it more feesable for homeowners to get lower rates on their mortgages, but there is a lot of paperwork to fill out, then they have to make sure that they qualify for this help, & unfortunately most of them have already lost their homes in the first place who could have benefited from this help! Instead of bailing out Banks & Big Corporations the Govt should have helped out the people by making more specicfic rules & regulations within the bail out money! :-)

No,

I went to an Occupy rally and a Tea Party rally,

At the Occupy the place was gross and trashed (litterally) when they left.

The Tea Party rally park look the same as before it started.  That says volume to me about respect for others.

Oh, yes.  They are so respectful.  Booing homosexual soldiers and chanting "Let them die!" regarding people who can't afford health insurance.  They clearly respect others.

I do not support socialism and anti-capitalism movements. There are problems in America for sure, and the corporations and banks have taken over just as out founding fathers feared. However, when the wealthiest Hollywood entertainers and the far far leftist sing the praises of a movement which claims to be socialists and communists, who carry anti-capitalism banners, burn the American flag, and are hell bent on causing marshal law to declared before the one of the most important election we've ever had.....NO, no, no, can't support it. Pitiful situation, so much confusion and deception everywhere.

I guess I should have wrote "other people's property,"  as in the public property.  That is more what I meant.

Since you brought it up.............

I have not heard of the the Tea Party booing a gay solders and chanting "let them die"

Can you give a link or reference where you read this?  Or, did you actually see it yourself?  If you saw it yourself, I would find that trouble behavior for the Tea Party.

I'm not sure where you have been if you missed those bits of news.  Here are some links both for written accounts and youtube so you can see for yourself.  Also, a brief rally with a few people is easier to contain and keep clean than a long-term camp.  I do not condone trashing any property, but you really can't compare the two.  If I had to choose a group that respects human life and dignity or one that does not, there is no question for me.  If you want to join them, that is your choice.  I think it is strange and misguided.
