    I guess what irritates me about Occupy Wall Street is it was treated as this great movement; whereas, the tea party movement on the other side is treated like extremist radicals. I was part of tea party and can tell you it was a group of people who were concerned about the debt and bailouts. It wasn’t a 2nd Amendment group, traditional marriage group or any of those things. Why is one grassroots group taken seriously and another treated like a bunch of radicals (unless Fox News I guess)? Everything I did with tea party was peaceful, positive, and very patriotic.No arrests or civil disobedience like with Occupy Wall Street and yet we are the radicals? Just annoys me.
