Most people across the ideological spectrum oppose Wall Street bailouts. What these hippies and wannabe-hippies don't get is that socialism provides no solution to our economic woes.
In today's Boston Herald, Howie Carr draws the distinction between this group and the Tea Party:
The Tea Party and Occupy Boston do have one thing in common — money.Moreover Tea Party people are respectful and never trash the venues where they assemble, either.
The people in the Tea Party want to keep theirs and the panhandlers camping out on the Greenway want to steal it from them.
Maybe you’ve seen the rabble as you’ve driven by. They claim to be interested in “Corporate Greed,” but they’d settle for some corporate weed.
The fact that the national Democrats are trying to throw in with these layabouts tells you all you need to know about both groups....
The Tea Party wants a balanced budget, and the media say they’re the extremists. These leeching losers in Dewey Square need 90 days observation at Bridgewater, and they’re the proud face of democracy.
They say they’ve been devastated by the recession, yet approximately 100 percent of them still worship Barack Obama, the architect of the fiasco.
Occupy Boston? They ought to go back to occupying their mothers’ basements
