OWS's genesis is the socialist Canadian adbusters that is anti-capitalism. The Tea Party is 100% for capitalism. Protesting is not a common bond of relevance Kris. It's what they are protesting, and their lack of ideas to solve problems. OWS is a bunch of hippie loons, who camped out like a college fraternity, and a many of which do not have jobs and are homeless as well, and offer NO solutions. My friends in NYC witnessed their BS "personally". Trust me, you believe too much of what the liberal US televisions shows and NY Times puts out there. Stop listening to Amanpour, Gregory, Matthews, Schultz, Maddow, Hayes, Stephanopoulus, Williams, Sixty Minutes, MSNBC, CNN,PBS, Charlie Rose, Pelley, Matt Lauer, etc., and so on. These are ALL bonafide liberal losers who kiss Oh-bama's rear end and try to destroy EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN OUT THERE. Corruption? Just look at the media in the USA.
