You know you are allowed more than 10 words in an excerpt, right?

And with such a BS headline - it’ll take a lot more than what I’m seeing here to make me click that link.

Is this worth reading past the headline?

I want to be in the same room with people that sh*t on the American Flag? Only if it gives me the opportunity to put my foot up someone’s butt.

The Tea Party couldn’t stand the stench, and the fleabaggers couldn’t stand having to clean up after themselves, or respect private and public property. That’s just the obvious physical conflicts. It’s pointless to try and explain the psychical and philosophical, not to mention theological differences to challenged Occupy minds. How would there ever be a melding of minds between utopian kooks and free people who appreciate small government and liberty?

Let’s see,

a group that is protesting having their earned property confiscated

and a group that seeks to confiscate more of others’ property...

I don’t see much “common ground” there.

Polar opposites.

One is for decreasing the size of government and the other is for increasing the size of government.

Maybe the OWS crowd hasn't decided whether or not they want us (the TEA) dead or alive. Careful everyone.

Agreed. I didn’t read this insane article, but if the author believes that the elites of the Republican party had anything to do with the formation of the TEA party he is seriously delusional to begin with.
The establishment Pubbies hate us almost as much as the libs hate us.

How so?

Hitler and Stalin were both about state control of private resources.

It worked for Hitler.

The efficiency of the truly national leader consists primarily in preventing the division of the attention of a people, and always in concentrating it on a single enemy.

Nothing.

At every TEA party we've been to, my buds and I were all carrying, and would to this "mixed marriage event".

I think you call it a "target rich environment".

If they are drunk or stoned and are staggering instead of running, " don't lead them too much".

As a Tea Partier, I reject even the hint of an alliance because all Tea Partiers I know:

- Loves America.
- Have, or are actively trying to find, a job.
- Pays taxes.
- Doesn’t think the government owes us anything.
- Believes our Constitution has served us well for over 200 years and is a major reason we have remained in existence for that period of time.
- Believes the Constitution was written by Godly men and based on Godly principles.
- Believes America is the best country that has ever existed, even though it is not perfect and there is certainly room for improvement.
- Is law-abiding.
- Respects lawful authority.
- Cleans up after themselves.

There are many more, but, in short, that’s what makes us Tea Partiers and not OWSers, and that’s why there are more of us than there are you. I don’t see that we have anything in common that would warrant even a discussion regarding an alliance. But, maybe when you grow up you can join us.

Be careful, folks. This is latest psyops from the Commies. They were pulling this crap with me on another forum and I got into a shootin’ match with them. They are trying to co-opt us with their ‘bowel movement’ and putting it like...”We share similar ideals” bullcrap. Don’t fall for it.

NO!

NO!

NO!

The nazis did the same. Took wildly opposing groups and focused their anger on a single target (the rich) in the end, the nazis got what they wanted and the groups they used got oppression and death.

The latest polls say upwards of 75% of Americans believe America is off the track. All the OWS guys and I suspect just about all freepers would agree.

What the pollsters never seem to ask is how we get it back on track.

Essentially the OWS guys want to make a hard left turn and the Tea Party wants to make a hard right turn.

The only thing they really have in common is a belief that we do indeed need to turn.

Could it be ... pollsters fear ideas of how to get back on track? Could be ... for there is no shortage of ideas, and the democrats are not providing any good ideas, nor are the owsers. Fear?

With trepidation I registered and wrote a lengthy, yet polite post as to why we could never co-mingle.

This blog seems to be some earnest young people wondering why if the tea party is part of the 99% they won’t join them.

I went easy on them because they seemed not to be the powers that be but young dupes.

I await their response.
