Okay, it hasn't yet, but give it another week...

You can't protest all the things at once and you can't protest just for the sake of protesting.

You need concise goals and you need specific demands. You can't walk around with signs that say "Down with Wall Street!" and expect something to happen; we understand your sentiments, but without a game plan, you're just saying words and obstructing traffic.

You are quickly losing credibility.

When I first learned about this, I was really excited. Excited to tears. Two weeks in, and I'm shaking my head.

Sure... but look at the 60's... were they a bust?

There were numerous issues on the table... ethnic and gender inequalities, the war in Vietnam, patients rights, Freedom of Speech, etc etc etc.

Were the 60's a bust?

The sit-ins and protest of the 60's were eventually swallowed up by drugs, unplanned pregnancies, strange cults, and poorly thought out communes.

However, it generated numerous real and lasting changes in this country that are still resonating today.

Will Occupy Wall Street do everything that everyone involved wants it to do? No... but it isn't going to end.

Let them say what they want.

Our President is not mentioned in any of these posts. He accepted millions of contributions from Wall street, has hired dozens of Wall street Goldman Sach's boys to his cabinet and Czararium. If you dont know your enemy how can you expect to beat them?
