It was a stupid cause to begin with, we shouldn't blame "banksters". You should be more worried about the government taking away your rights. The guys who occupied wallstreet are just a bunch of socialist hippies.

You differentiate between bankers and the government? Where have you been? lol

Sure. The government is the power broker; selling their power to initiate force. It absolutely must be eliminated. The Banks are just one of their best customers.

OWS just wants the force to be applied differently, hence direct their anger at the banks.

I've been to both Zuccotti Park and Tea Party rallies, not as a protestor but a casual observer.  Both sets of participants were equally cordial and willing to speak their minds.

"Why are you here, what do you want"

Tea Party:
"Less government, lower taxes, less regulations"

Occupy:
"more taxes (for the rich)"
"reparations for African-Americans"
"stop fracking"
"animal rights"
"jail all of the bankers" (didn't really get this one)
"legalize marijuana"
"force FDA to regulate genetically modified food"

My take-away was that the Tea Party spoke with a unified voice.  The Occupy folks were all over the place, typically blogging with $500+ iPads, $1,000+ MacBooks and playing in drum circles.
