Occupy is the voice of the people not your party. I am calling you out. You, the party lap dogs that want to assist the 1% in talking over the people. You, who cater to the talking points provided by the 1%. We The People will no longer be talked over. It's a conversation for and about us and we're taking it back. Get used to it.

The barrage of partisan posts here does nothing to move Occupy forward. It moves it sideways. Partisans don't listen, they are too comfortable in their own political prison cell, afraid to come out into the freedom of open thought. When a person closes the door on reason, the reasonable thing to do is end the debate. Why waste your breath and our time?

Rocky Anderson is on ballot in many states, and he praised Ows as idealistic courageous and convergent with his positions (3RD LINK) His strategy is through social media, as the egyptian s did, wants a revo. Against duopoly. If we met up in public forums, parks, and championed his candidacy, that's freedom of speech. How could that be shut down. And everyone emailed, wrote everyone they know, everyone in the phone book, but keep it optimistic, have kids there, etc pro family and worker.








It was cool to the public when you occupied. Real not staged. For those who know in their soul the system has deep problems, it was inspiring.

Can WE occupy central park(s) and spread the message there, even if it is daily. It was cool you were out in public standing up.

It's just whole country feels conservative, cause cons keep repeative Obama is communist.

OWS was so fast, and not well covered in main media, for most part. I think it was raising awareness, especially when the police got out of line, but now it is easy for public to ignore, and for many they may believe it has faded away:((

Sorry if this is a poor idea. I'm old & on west coast. I'm out of loop here. There was an occupy in my town, one of longest lasting closed in dec.

richard's blog is Cool Beans!!

Great post Richard. At the risk of sounding like I'm sucking up, you are what OWS is all about.

There's only 24 hours in a day, Rich.

I noticed someone down-voted both your comments. What a surprise. I have restored them.

Ignore the partisan rhetoric

This isn't the house or senate floor. Take your party dogma where it belongs, to the trash.
