It's not that I don't support what you all are up to but I have to admit how angry it makes me to see so many people dumping winter clothes donations, food, supplies to occupiers. I think it is safe to say that 99% of occupiers are not homeless and if they need a winter coat they could probably just take the bus a couple blocks back home to get some more clothes or grab their toothbrush. There are more people out there that literally have nothing... It's sad that this effort to help out those in need isn't shown all the time. occupy brags they fed 4000 people for thanksgiving.. 4000 people that probably could afford to get their own dinner. Imagine if that 4000 was all families at House of Ruth or homeless shelters all over the country. I'm just saying... think about who REALLY needs it..

at occupy madison here in wisconsin about 80% of occupiers are homeless!

You might be wrong. I dunno how the homeless community is in baltimore but it might be poorer than it seems. not all homeless people look like how we middle classers stereotype them
