    The Movement is going to Burn out. More and more of the less Radical people that were involved are leaving. Sick of being associated with the Radical Wack Job Communists, Anarchists, and Nazis that are the Core of the Movement in the first place.

    If OWS wants to turn this movement into a real Political Force, then they need to stop with the Occupations, and Confrontations. Stop Standing in front of a poor Family with a 2 Year old in their Car and blocking them from leaving, and intimidating them. Stop behaving like Radical, Assholes, and Get Organized as a Political Force like the Tea Party did.

    Trust me on this, the movement isn't going to "burn out." It's just going to change form. The tactic of occupying public spaces is already evolving into other methods, including various forms of direct action and a national convention next year with a petition to the government, and plans in the works for a new Constitutional convention.

    It can't go on indefinitely being a bunch of people camped out in parks. That tactic has served its purpose. Now it's time for other things. But the movement is definitely not going away.

    You know, saying shit like this firmly entrenches you into being just as much of a radical whack job as you object to others allegedly being.

    They're the real thing. The Tea Party was premature, as in ejaculation, and like an ejaculation it is now spent. :tongue:

    if you think some mass march on the dem convention is going to win you sppt. well, have at it. IF and big IF the dem money folks/superdelegates are smart, they'll break it up. of course if plouffe and obama have their way they will want it because they are deluded enough to think it will energize their base, oh it may do that to some extent, maybe, BUT it will further repel the indies.....a reading , a serious one of the whole 68 convention, the run up and results, says , don't do it.


    uh huh.

    The Occupy convention is planned for Philadelphia. The Democratic convention will be in Charlotte.

    Tell me honestly. Six months ago, if I had told you that something like Occupy was going to happen sometime over the summer or fall, would you have believed it? I very much doubt it. I doubt you had any inkling of the possibility.

    But I knew. And I know what I'm talking about now, too.
