It’s nice to be right. It’s pleasant to see agreement with your thoughts. However you want to say it. Vice Presidenet Biden has said as well that the OWS people have something in common with the tea party people. He’s a man who speaks his mind if there ever was one—almost an Eyon Biddle.
Here’s another thing about the OWS/TP comparison. Nobody has really been able to say one fixed, certain thing the tea party movement is about, beyond a shrill cry of “smaller government!” Similarly, the Occupy Wall Street movement has many different rallying cries, albeit for the roughly common purpose of opposing massive corporate greed. That’s why the comparison is apt.
Never mind that the spokesmen for the tea partiers think the OWS is a tangle of disorganized, incoherent anarchists. (The latter they are certainly not.) So we rely on Jon Stewart to bring it home with a smack to the head of those who say it’s right for some but wrong for others to do virtually the same thing.
And now, back to the budget for me.
