I feel that it its wonderful that the occupy movements in other cities are getting attention, but I really think that Occupy wall street needs to plan its next big demonstration to get back at the forefront of the news. Many people think the movement is dying and we need to revitalize it at its heart.

The perfect place to occupy.


The Revolution starts here!

start supporting the NEED act and get money creating abilities back into the hands of the people rather than the corporate Federal Reserve. this is how you initiate change and remove power from those who have truly misused it. we can change out the entire congress if necessary but it isnt even a possibility with the federal reserve bank.

How about taking back THE NEWS!

Occupy needs to OCCUPY THE MEDIA!

Surround the TV stations like they did in Egypt http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/11/egypt-protests-state-tv-building

Those bastards are responsible for everything! A Democracy cannot survive without a free press...and what the hell do we have? Entertainment tonight news readers. I don't think they even know what an 'investigative reporter' is anymore.

Our supposed liberal media has republican war criminal jackasses on all the time to promote their books and their history of murder.

Those our OUR PUBLIC AIRWAVES! Every 8 years the stations have to reapply to the FCC and prove they are of value to the public.

Recent studies have found that Fox 'news' viewers are less informed than if they watched no news at all. This certainly proves that Fox is not serving the public interest. And of course we all know that ABCNNBCBS are not any better.

They all helped sell two wars based on lies. They are also responsible for the killing of millions of innocent people. They have blood on their hands and should be held accountable and shamed for their participation in fascism and murder.

Glenn Beck is still on the majority of radio stations, our public airwaves. He recently said about the pepper spray cop attacking innocent protesters at U C Davis...."I couldn't watch that video over and over. IT was hilarious!" He is one sick sadistic bastard. It is absurd he is allowed on our public airwaves.

I think it is going to be a long winter.

I don't mind if the opposition gets the mistaken impression the public has gone back to sleep.

In any case, I am confident, next summer is going to be cr4zY!

They should have formed 99% on k street and sent a camera-equipped helicopter overhead to capture the footage. With proper foresight, it could have been awesome.

sounds extreme. maybe persistence would be a better formula.

[-] 0 points by darkhound (66) 12 years ago

Persistence is not a trait they have. Otherwise, they'd have jobs and be at work rather than squatting public parks and smoking weed.

[-] 1 points by Samsquatch (48) 12 years ago

enforcement of jailing people for smoking weed started in the 70s under the order of nixon as an excuse to try and break up the protests at that time. it helps you stop sweating the small stuff and when you arent afraid you can enact change.

[-] 0 points by darkhound (66) 12 years ago

If you can read, persistence was the point, not smoking weed. In any case, smoking weeding is indeed small stuff, but indicative of larger things.

i was trying to point out that you are trying to turn an entire group of human beings into something somehow beneath consciousness. if working at walmart for minimum wage an entire lifetime is your definition of persistence, i would rather be a bum on the street. at least i wouldn't be a slave to debt. people are getting out of college without a chance at getting a job already 80+ thousand in debt.

[-] 0 points by darkhound (66) 12 years ago

Who says you are entitled to a job better than one at Walmart? Your attitude is exactly why we have so many bums on the street and other underachievers.

Lots of people are getting out of college with a chance of great jobs. Medical technicians are in high demand. Engineers are in high demand in silicon valley right now. So much so that we have to hire ones from China and India.

Don't blame others for stupid life decisions (e.g. taking 80+ in debt to get a psychology, English, or fine arts degree). Lots of students took the lazy route, majoring in easy subjects without thinking how that would help (or not help) them get a job.

[-] 1 points by Samsquatch (48) 12 years ago

so you would tell bob marley to get an engineering degree? yes im blaming an unfair system designed to keep people in debt, this is a very orwellian system. our government is on the verge of collapse due to debt and you say the average individual has a fair shot?

[-] 0 points by darkhound (66) 12 years ago

First of all, Bob Marley wasn't stupid enough to spend 80k on a useless music degree. He dropped out of school.

Every individual needs to look at his or her talents and decide what's best. If you think you can be Bob Marley, go for it. But if you look at the million other music graduates and realize you are not much more talented or dedicated than they are, you probably shouldn't spend 80k on a music degree.

It's not an unfair system. It's obvious to any idiot that a degree in history isn't going to be very helpful in a post-graduation job search. The person should have realized that and made some other plan. Yet we have a billion students with useless majors. Engineering and medical technologies were just two examples of helpful degrees.

you are missing my original point completely and will continue to not get it. im done. man was not meant to be a computer, his true strength lies in conceptualization.

Let's all be hippies and get paid 100k for it. Reality bites.
