A recap of these meetings would be extremely helpful. Are they maybe being posted on Reddit or something?

Yes - I or someone else at the assembly will be planning to take notes for the Assembly. I recorded notes on last GA for myself but as objectively as possible - they are here: http://thisclosetosolipsism.blogspot.com/2011/08/report-first-general-assembly-of-new.html

We got out to the West Coast broke, So dad-gum hungry I thought I'd croak,

An' I bummed up a spud or two, An' my wife fixed up a tater stew --

We poured the kids full of it, Mighty thin stew, though, You could read a magazine right through it.

Always have figured

That if it'd been just a little bit thinner,

Some of these here politicians

Coulda seen through it.

I do not any longer wish to make changes with ows. I supported your cause however the lack of order and disappointing responses on blogs in regard to my military service is dumb. People here will never accomplish change. My only wish is to solve this problem of debt and corruption is to support elected officials who do their job. The ignorant comments of the protesters was upsetting. It is like a mental ward here and everyone one here is just blurting nonsense. I choose no longer to support you. Go get the right from the city to protest, stand in line and fill the form out. Wall street might have its hogs, but not every biz is corrupted. I could have been a powerful ally in public speaking and political discussions. I hope you all get what you deserve. Write a letter and express your deepest apologies to the police and for wasting tax dollars. You all could have done more profound things, however, you will all fail. People might get hurt and for what? Paper money and debt you can't touch. Start a bill and know your rights, this is the blind leading the deaf and dumb. So what they took our homes and money. We can only blame ourselves for not covering our own ass. We didn't read the fine print or hand simple contracts to lawyers. A judge will never rule in our favor if it went to court. They will ask if you signed it? What you do not like the truth? Does it put blame on a mindless mass. You all fell for the ponzi scam and are stuck with a bill we do not want. Oh well only thing to do is pay our tax and strive for a better life. next time read the fine print and know what sounds to good to be true. I will blame every last one of you if a life is wasted when the proper channels are available at your finger tips. Senators and congressmen are on your side but do it differently. Protests vs bills presented to congress? Bills have gotten more done.

A solid first step in fixing our economic and political woes is to disqualify any person worth more than two million dollars from holding political office. The rich are too corrupted by greed to be an any benefit to the community generally. Putting the rich in government is like turning over the reins of power to a bunch of felons. The American middle class, the true creator of jobs and wealth, should control the government for the people. I look forward to some politician proposing this amendment before the greed of the already wealthy completely destroys our democratic way of life, economy and values. The foundation of our nation is not capitalism but democracy in the form of a Republic. Capitalism is nowhere even mentioned in the American Constitution. Capitalism is a tool of democracy to generate wealth and prosperity. Democracy should not be the tool of capitalism to generate wealth for a few. Capitalism is a beast that must be harnessed to pull the plow for the well-being of humanity. Now is an historic opportunity for hard-working and creative middle class Americans to assert their majority rights against a corrupt and ineffective elite who have brought the country to the brink of ruin.

The ECONOMIC RIGHTS MOVEMENT was started on May 1, 2010 at the University of Michigan by the Community Organization for Abundant Life (see FB page). We have been organizing THE PERFECTION MARCH ON WALL STREET, scheduled for July 4, 2012 since 2010. You must have picked up on our idea, which is fine. Yet you must realize that it will take time to organize this tactic properly and Sept. 17, 2011 is just too soon. I hope that someone from this group will contact us at COAL Inc. in order that we can get better organized. Because this is a, "Go For Broke," tactic. We may not get another chance to do this. Thus we need to do it right the first time. We have been to Chicago and made The PERFECTION MARCH ON WALL STREET known to N'COBRA and others there. We have spread the idea all across the planet. And now Adbusters is taking it and running with it. That is fine, but it must be done Right!!! 2012 is an Election Year. July 4, is a symbolic day for Independence. We need to have all of our issues and voices in line and in tune before we do this. And Sept. 17th, 2011 is just too soon to organize properly without a massive push from people who are not even informed yet of why we Must go to Wall Street and protest. Someone really needs to call me about this. Minister Ashe'

I applaud your efforts, ethos, and the incredible amount of work and planning you have done. But it looks like the gears for Occupy Wall Street have already been put into motion, and it's highly unlikely that the organizer(s) who have called for the Sept 17th protest will say "just kidding!" and move the date to July 4, 2012.

Will you bring your wisdom and join us at Occupy Wall Street? Or help those who want to attend the Sept 17 protests with your advice?

Can there be only one protest on Wall Street? Why not many? O.W.C and Perfection March and one every single week if need be...

I hope that you find the organizer(s) you're looking for, and can have the chat you request.
