and occupiers would become shareholders who could elect, and nominate individuals to the board?

if we all used our name when we voted,

the results could be publicly verified

float charitable bonds, support shareholder rights and lead by example, include individuals who don't have time to live in a tent, and so forth.

Promoting shareholder rights. Right now corporations in America do not allow shareholders to vote against incumbent candidates, but shareholders have been advocating for this right since at least the 1950's. Therefore occupy could potentially lead the way in making corporate america more democratic.

o and plus occupy wouldn't have to worry about being used by sponsors such as jobs with justice and so forth.

what about....

conduct unpredictable spot-mayhem exploits

exploit wall st.

monopoly cash stacks - make it rain

disengage from cattle-corralled protests/arrests -predictability

satirize and exploit the comical blunder - wall st.

new image of strength and imagination

public burnings of money

apolitical reform - politics is the labyrinth of doom

pose questions to the public - they need to know they are the 99%

get collegic - campus flashpoint for disturbance of the status qua

disspell antipathy and ambivalence of the youth

go extreme - get extreme

Occupy could do that more effectively if they were a non-profit or C-class corporation because they would be able to use the shareholder option to gain more individuals, become more democratic, and finally have corporate ability to float bonds to raise funds for such activities. Just look at how ad-busters was able to effectively organize occupy in the first place, simply because they had the resources.

incorporate FOR profit,

satirical mayhem ensues

It could be a Non-Profit Corporation (A.K.A 5013c). 5013c's have become more reliant on portfolios and are on the verge of potentially creating a social stock market, or what is known as a third market.

I think you mean a 501(c)3. But those have very specific requirements. There are other different sub categories that may apply better.

you mean like a LLC or S-class corporation may apply better?
