I just read Disinfo’s article “What do Occupy and the Tea Party have in common?” and threw up my hands. Why? Cause I said this four months ago in this article entitled “Camo – Guns = Tie Dye.” Well, not exactly. Think of my article as the prequel.
But I thought all of things that Disinfo said, I just didn’t write it because at the time I wanted to write a humorous article. I’ve been saying all of this to friends (and anybody else who’ll listen) since Occupy started.
So if Occupy and the Tea Party — the most influential movements of the Left and Right — agree on these six points, why can’t we get these six things done? Because they all run afoul of Big Money Politics. There’s no way anything is getting done that crosses the Fortune 500.
Politicians who depend on corporate money to fund campaigns will not bite the hands that feed them. Simple, sad, and true.
