Some of you may be wondering: “what’s all this Occupy Wall Street god-damn hippy mumbo jumbo?! Is that the same as all those rowdy Tea partyers? What in tarnation is going on in American politics? *gasp* Commies!!”
Well, you wouldn’t be the only one in the dark about these political movements. From people I’ve talked to (granted, mostly college students) most don’t really have a clear idea of these movements’ specific purposes either.
Those who do, however, seem pretty riled up. Protesters come from a variety of different backgrounds and have an even wider variety of reasons propelling them.
