There is a visual aide (Infographic) that compares the OWS and TeaParty. It's interesting. I wish I had time to verify its accuracy.

Same thing, different link:

Sorry that this is just a link, but I think its worth checking out.

Oh, we don't yet have the police state yet, but we will if the left has it's way. You will need one to enforce all the government requirements.

Unlike liberals who don't "like it" and expect someone else to do something about it, Christians work hard

In what bizarro world can policeman assault alleged nonviolent criminals without provocation? A police state?

Right...except that the provocation was a violation of university policy by protesters...then an order to evacuate by the university Chamberlain...then a written order to evacuate by the police...then a verbal order to evacuate by the police...then protesters physically blocking police from clearing the tents...then protesters resisting arrest...then verbal warnings before being sprayed...then finally they were sprayed.

Those protesters weren't resisting. They were sitting down. Surely the cop has learned how to arrest people who are peacefully sitting down without pepper spraying the heck out of them. In fact, the courts have ruled that using pepper spray on nonviolent protesters is a no-no.

Likewise it is a shame that [so many] Republicans don't act like Christians should.

[Kinda pointless rhetoric, eh?]

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on numerous occasions that resisting a false arrest is not merely a citizen’s right, but his duty! In fact, the Supreme Court has gone so far as to rule that if a law enforcement officer is killed as a result of actions stemming from a citizen’s attempts to defend themselves against a false arrest, it is the fault of the officer, not the citizen.

Yeah, I think they should have just grabbed them and dragged them out of there, the pepper spray looked like a waste of time.
