We should get some creative minds together and start designing some shirts that will attract people, with a catch-phrase or logo of OWS on it. Sell bumper stickers or anything that will spread the word and bring people 'closer' to the movement.
Money is power in this country; Obama crushed his competition when he last ran, mostly from the millions of $1.00 internet donations funding his campaign! If we want to make a statement and play with the Big boys, we gotta take steps! Bad idea or good?

dunno, the support isn't broad enough? Get enough people behind the 99% Declaration and $$$ will magically appear. Ask people to send money to support the shutting down of a coastal port? Yea, good luck with that. The point of OWS/99% is not about money it's about votes. Show the world that OWS/99% is smart and the money problem will take care of itself. Notice how the working group has already secured enough funds to rent the venue for the National General Assembly in Philadelphia July 4th? Why do you think that is? Because people with money look for good people/causes to invest their money in. But yea, the fund-raising you're suggesting could help if it helped get voters excited about the NGA/Philly . People are power too.

With the repeat 'wiping out' of OWS sites across the country, I think people are pathetic too. I said the law was just pushing us around to test our mettle and they were. Now they pushing harder and the OWS is more of the same old stuff. The movement, of just sitting and chanting folks, will die. Steps of action are required.

Holding the National General Assembly is the most powerful statement OWS/99% can make now that can't be dissed. The failure of the NYCGA to announce it, and actions like closing the ports on the west coast will kill the movement. The street level actions have succeeded. Time to exercise the final 1st Amendment right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The USA is not like Egypt or Syria.

Want CHANGE? How about 99%!
