    What if the two prominent grassroots movements of the day, the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, joined forces to support an agenda that would be good for America?

    "Both groups are short on policy specifics. As popular movements, they lack organizers and spokesmen; both are to some extent expressions of mood. Nonetheless, there are several policies that reflect the concerns of at least a large part of both groups and that would be beneficial for the ordinary Americans whom both claim to represent. These policies would be a departure, however, from the current positions of the Democratic and Republican parties—whose shortcomings caused the two movements to spring up in the first place. So here it is, the Tea Party-Occupy Wall Street agenda.

    * Prevent bank bailouts -

    Both Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party are disturbed by the way the federal government handled the financial crisis of 2008. The problem is not that people on Wall Street make a lot of money (though some in Occupy Wall Street might think it is). The problem is that when they lose money, at least when they lose a lot, the rest of us have to bail them out...

    * Eliminate corporate welfare -

    Despite differences of emphasis, the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street share a well-founded suspicion that the federal government favors politically connected interests at the expense of the rest of us. Corporate welfare is one way this happens, and it should be understood broadly. Farm subsidies are one form of corporate welfare; they redistribute money from other Americans to a select group of large corporations and mostly wealthy individuals. The massive subsidies and loan guarantees given to putatively “green” corporations are another form, though they generally benefit less successful corporations. The recent scandal surrounding Solyndra illustrates how political connections rather than viability in the marketplace determine who receives corporate welfare, and how it tends to produce “heads I win, tails you lose” situations. If Solyndra had been successful, its well-connected owners would have made a fortune; when it wasn’t, the taxpayers lost one...

    * Support American workers -

    Supporting the wages of American workers with a tariff is not quite a respectable position among our political elites, which is why it is valuable to hear other voices, like those of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street..."

    So, if Tokyo Rose is a lesbian, why is she jealous of the Tea Party District Rep? Oh, I get it, the Rep is a Dyke.

    George Soros wouldn't let that happen......

    Democrat operative mobilizes Occupy protesters. Co-director of Soros-funded group declares movement ‘unstoppable’


    Soros group behind Occupy since onset

    Hickey himself also co-founded the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute, which was reportedly heavily involved in crafting the foundations for President Obama’s health-care law.

    CAF, meanwhile, has been funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute as well as by the Soros-funded Tides Center, which channels funding to hundreds of progressive and far-left groups.

    Tides has been connected to the Occupy movement since its beginning.

    Another grantee of Tides is Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after Arab Spring protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. The Adbusters website serves as a central hub for Occupy’s planning.

    MoveOn.org, which has joined Occupy, is funded by Tides. CAF’s board of directors includes MoveOn.org President Eli Pariser.

    Fenton Communications, an extremist-led outfit that crafts the public relations strategy of Tides grantees, has come under newfound scrutiny after WND published a series of exposés tying it to Occupy Wall Street. One of its senior employees represented the anti-Wall Street march past millionaires’ homes in New York last month.

    Tea partiers won't want to lower themselves to the standards of the flea party, which include vandalism, graffiti, trespassing, flaunting laws and regulations, assaults, theft, rape, drug dealing, drug overdoses and a murder.
