    So Mandy, I sense sarcasm. Other than whose ox is being gored, how do you see it otherwise?

    The Republicans are very much identified with Wall Street, big corporations, multi-nationals at the expense of the common man. I believe they have much to be anxious about with this movement. Why?

    Look around the world. This movement is similar to those we have seen in other countries, the rebellion of the little person against those entrenched in concentrating the wealth and power into the hands of the few. We have seen governments topple before this movement, i.e. Egypt, Libya. We have seen other governments take drastic measures attempting to put down this movement.

    For instance there is a bill moving through Congress that has bipartisan support in the Senate to impose tariffs on Chinese produced items as punishment against the Chinese government for manipulating their currency to their advantage and to our harm. However the Republican House leadership is already saying this is a dangerous bill as it might impact profits of multinationals. It might just do that, but if passed and Chinese products become more expensive it just might open new manufacturing jobs here at home as we could compete on a more level playing field. It seems the Republicans do not want to level the playing field.

    This should prove to be an interesting movement to watch.

    This "movement" is a farce. It is instigated by the union powers and has no real focus other than drugs and sex in the open, destroying where ever they "camp" out at. And given the standard the left has created for the Tea Party they are racist given that there are almost no one involved but white people. They are constantly being arrested and causing chaos. It is a shameful "movement" at best. And it is powered by the unions to distract from Obama's sorry record. They are costing small businesses money interfering with their businesses and costing the sanitation depts. tons of money. They are spoiled rotten little suburban kids who have not any level of experience in life. They are being used and manipulated by the unions much like the pharisees riled up the crowd to crucify Jesus. This is a mindless "movement".
