I completely agree with the protest. But really what is your cause ?? What is your message ? Who is taking charge ?.. It is sad because all I see on TV and on the live feeds looks like a dirty hippie lot scene from Phish or the Dead !!!! Organize yourselves ... No drum circles no jam sessions GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER !!!! If you want to be taken seriously then act and look serious !!! As long as it looks like a month long lot scene your not going to accomplish shit !!!! I wanna come down there not to protest but to smack the shit out of you people and tell you to act like adults!!!! This "movement" is not going to be taken seriously and will slowly loose steam if things don't change. There is ZERO media coverage ..not because "the corporations own the media dude" it because the media can't penetrate the fog of pot smoke and patchouli oil. Right now this movement is lacking the most fundamental things to be successful.. You have no unifying message, no "leader" to speak to media or be on national TV.... At the end of the day it's a big lot/party scene... Trust me my friends and I realized this last night while we were hitting the bong !!! I am not a hater in any way but really right now you guys look like a fucking joke !!!!
You need to organize more!You need to find a unifying message that will speak for and to people not only there but across the nation! You need to make every attempt so it does not look like a party scene!You need a leader or a leading group! You need to present a mature professional image to the media!And maybe just maybe you need a little violence... A little blood in the water might do some good!!

May God Be with you all !!!!

Time to unify in a common direction. Find leaders to go to Washington and write legislation. When interviewed, no one seems to have the same ideals. I support a movement, but it has to be productive. Parades are cute but a platform must be raised to unify people to get behind

...and with all due respect, if you absolutely must fly banners that look like the national flags of candyland and wherever it is that teletubbies live, at least throw in one regular American flag.

Start the war against Injustice by starting our own banks to double the income of the Bottom 90% of Workers, for many more people will come to your side when you are proactive (for “new” Business & Government solutions), instead of reactive (against “old” Business & Government solutions), which is why what we most immediately need is a comprehensive “new” strategy that implements all our various socioeconomic demands at the same time, regardless of party, and although I'm all in favor of taking down today's ineffective and inefficient Top 1% Management System of Business & Government, there's only one way to do it – by fighting bankers as bankers ourselves, and thus doubling our income from Bank Profits which are 40% of all Corporate Profits; that is, using a Focused Direct Democracy organized according to our current Occupations & Generations. Consequently, I have posted a 1-page Summary of the Strategically Weighted Policies, Organizational Operating Structures, and Tactical Investment Procedures necessary to do this at:

http://getsatisfaction.com/americanselect/topics/on_strategically_weighted_policies_organizational_operating_structures_tactical_investment_procedures

Join

http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/StrategicInternationalSystems/

because we need 100,000 “support clicks” at AmericansElect.org in support of the above bank-focused platform.

Most importantly, remember, as cited in the first link, that as Bank Owner-Voters in your 1 of 48 "new" Business Investment Groups (or "new" Congressional Committees) you become the "new" Congress, and related “new” Businesses, replacing the "old" Congress, and related “old” Businesses, according to your current Occupations & Generations, called a Focused Direct Democracy.

Therefore, any Candidate (or Leader) therein, regardless of party, is a straw man, a puppet, a political opportunist; what's important is the STRATEGY – the sequence of steps – that the people organize themselves under in Military Internet Formation of their Individual Purchasing Power & Group Investment Power. In this, sequence is key, and if the correct mathematical sequence is followed then it results in doubling the income of the Bottom 90% of Workers from today's Bank Profits, which are 40% of all Corporate Profits.

Why? Because there are Natural Social Laws – in mathematical sequence – that are just like Natural Physical Laws, such as the Law of Gravity. You must follow those Natural Social Laws or the result will be Injustice, War, etc.

The FIRST step in Natural Social Law is to CONTROL the Banks as Bank Owner-Voters. If you do not, you will inevitably be UNJUSTLY EXPLOITED by the Top 1% Management System of Business & Government who have a Legitimate Profit Motive, just like you, to do so.

Consequently, you have no choice but to become Candidates (or Leaders) yourselves as Bank Owner-Voters according to your current Occupations & Generations.

So please JOIN the 2nd link, and spread the word to as many as possible, so we can make 100,000 support clicks at AmericansElect.org when called for, at exactly the right time, by an e-mail from that group, in support of the above the bank-focused platform. If so, then you will see and feel how your goals can be accomplished within the above strategy as a “new” Candidate (or Leader) of your current Occupation & Generation.

I completely agree, except for the violence

Here is a survey that was created for exactly that purpose. I feel strongly that we need to have a unified set of objectives, but since many of us have very different opinions we need some statistics to show what we have in common and the ONLY way that is going to happen is when people take surveys like this one.

The group that organized this..Adbusters is from Canada. They are openly anti-capitalists. They started OWS.

However I see that the movement has attracted more then the anti-capitalists crowd. I'm not sure they counted on that. Now the people are taking notice of the movement. I am not surprised to see other political types try and step in. When they unleash the “real” agenda, I think most PEOPLE involved in this movement will recognize that. I have witnessed the awakening of many people, who came here for information.

This resistance/protest will fail unless its "leaders" make a list of the biggest offenders and boycott them. Then follow that up with a focused grassroots effort to start a third political party. Then real change is possible. Question is, does this movement want REAL change? Or just enough to make their lives a little more comfortable?

Keep posting comments to keep it at the top please.. I feel the movement is very important but lacking direction

Absolutely! We cant afford to be seen as anti-American either.I was at the Occupy Lansing(mich) rally on the 15th and saw only one American flag.If we are fighting for America we need to be perceived as Americans. Don't give the tea-baggers more ammo.
