Good afternoon everyone, I share many of your frustrations, but have not been to an occupy location. Friends who have attended mentioned the lack of sanitation, specifically the smell of urine. I'd like to suggest getting some pvc pipe, mounting it to a sewer grate so it is near-perpendicular to the grate, securing the inverted top of a plastic water bottle to the pipe with duct tape and using this for men to urinate in. Cardboard screens could be set up for modesty. If that is not possible, I recommend retaining one used water bottle for urination purposes and emptying the contents of that bottle into the sewer when it is used. Environmental impact should be no different than the status quo since people are urinating on the ground anyway. It will also send a message that the group is making an effort to keep the areas clean. Can't imagine city officials having a problem with this. Don't have a solution for the ladies, but at least this will work for the men.
Hope it helps

Take my advice, don't waste your time.

OWS compared to the Tea Party

Christine O'Donnell was nominated in Delaware to be the Tea Party Republican candidate for the United States Senate. OWS adamantly refuses to endorse much less nominate any candidate to run for election. The OWS believes that they can choose demands that will be enacted by merely sitting in the park holding signs and having petitions signed.

The Tea Party demands to get government out of the lives of all except for sexual behavior. Christine O'Donnell claimed she was against masturbation. Does Christine actually know what masturbation is and has Christine ever masturbated? Christine went right down the line about gay marriage and abortion. Now that Christine has been video taped and has written a book the OWS would be wise to consider making her the poster child for the right wing nuts.

Instead of using Christine O"Donnell as the poster child for Republicans, the OWS prefers to claim that they are the 99% which mathematically includes the 35% of American Republicans who gave a knee jerk reaction applause to Rick Perry when bragged that as Governor of Texas he leads the nation http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/number-executions-state-and-region-1976 by far. Perry was proud that he executed 234 and that Perry believes that to be thoughtful.

With Obama on record for being a liar on every campaign promise, and being wrong on every decision he has made in office, the OWS fails to see any opportunity to nominate any candidate for election. During my experience with hundreds of OWS people in person in the park and on the OWS forum they are as uniformly ridiculous and naive as the Tea Party. With all of this clearly on the record, the only conclusion possible is that America is doomed. read more http://overthecoals.blogspot.com/
