Can you just imagine how many people would be gathered on that mall? The numbers could make a massive statement. I think this would serve to solidify the movement, and attract some speakers/leaders to act as a mouthpiece. What do you all think?

Check out http://occupywallst.org/forum/its-time-for-a-million-people-march-to-capitol-hil/ and http://www.dailykos.com/blog/Occupy%20the%20Mall and http://peoplescongress.org/ and http://www.facebook.com/pages/March-on-Washington-2012/212148705485038

Lots of people trying to make this happen but it is very scattered. I keep telling everyone about all the plans so maybe we can all come together on this.

Interesting, well the "Rally To Restore Sanity" started as a Facebook group right? Maybe a facebook page would be the way to go?

Too much confusion, we simply need a: Occupy Wall Street, meet here, this date. Anything else will never gain steam.

day of rage/ million march/ occupy? If you look at people like Dylan Ratigan, Van Jones, David Degraw, Bill Black, and the guy who wrote the 99% Declaration, it's obvious that OWS has to move to the next level. Attention has been gathered and steam is building but it has to go, and can go, somewhere.

The sooner this thing publicly calls out the president, the better.

are you retarded?

[-] 0 points by OWSisawaste (133) 11 years ago

no i am not....tell me why you think i am and i will prove you wrong....

Do you really think we should uphold the status quo, and keep things just like they are and everything will be A-OKAY?

[-] 0 points by OWSisawaste (133) 11 years ago

it will never be "A-OKAY" but right now it is not bad...tell me im wrong i dare you......you should be grateful that you live in such a good country and have the PRIVILEGE to bitch and moan that you do not have money, or you are mad at gov or that you want us to be commies.....

You are wrong....

[-] 1 points by OWSisawaste (133) 11 years ago

tell me why? why am i wrong? or did you just give up....

[-] 1 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 11 years ago

It doesn't matter what I tell you. Your head is so far up your ass that you would spin around in circles before you came to a general understanding.

[-] 1 points by OWSisawaste (133) 11 years ago

HAHAH you make me laugh....you are just either too dumb to fight me or are just too aware that you cant.....you dont have any facts or even ideas to refute me with.....

[-] 1 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 11 years ago

Yeah, I'll go with that...I just know a lost cause when I see one.

Stop feeding the troll.

Please everyone just ignore this guy and address the thread topic. (if anyone is interested?)

[-] 0 points by OWSisawaste (133) 11 years ago

why are you going to ignore me? I am trying to show yu that your ideas are flawed and that if you want to achieve ANYTHING in this whole "lets change the world" shit then you have to be able to back up your views and SHOW why they are right or whatever.....you clearly are not so it looks like you just failed your precious "movement"
