  •  Now an interesting point (18+ / 0-)

    one of the staffers told us...We asked if it was normal for typical citizens to do this sort of lobbying and he said no - not really - except for the tea party people. I thought - well shit - no wonder they listen to those people..

    •  The President appears to react to whomever is (7+ / 0-)

      in public making the biggest noise.  Occupy (everywhere) now makes the Tea Party really look like a tempest in a tea pot.  Pitiful actually.  And these people are running our Congress now.  They didn't mean what they said.  Corporate money not only controls our Country, it controls the Tea Party.  It was a distraction.  They enabled the Republican Party (and make no mistake about there being any "moderate Republicans), to do what it has wanted to do since FDR.  They've been largely successful.  But only because they are in power.  The public knows this now.  Even the most isolated Fox News viewer knows there is Occupy, and however they may feel about it, and whatever is being said about it - doesn't really matter.  There are still die hard ignorant people out there who refuse to see their own living nightmare, but that's okay too.
      There are more of us than there are of them.

      We are making a big, big noise.  And tomorrow, it's going to become so obvious, it can't be ignored.
