The occupy movement is like a bunch of chickens flopping around with their heads cut off. I read the list of gripes posted on the Occupy Wall Street web site, and I am in general agreement, more or less, with all of them; but what I do not find is any plan or strategy to accomplish reform. It is not enough to assemble for the purpose of petitioning for the redress of grievances. Nobody is going to redress these grievances without some political force that can overwhelm the two party tyranny that protects the status quo. Having more and bigger "occupations" accomplishes nothing. Over 50% of working age Americans do not make enough money to afford food, clothing, shelter, health care, child care and education, much less any thing else. These people need to be mobilized to elect enough office holders to guarantee these things, enough to call for and populate a constitutional convention to override any Supreme Court opposition. This seems to me the concern of highest priority. Once we have that, much of the rest will follow.
