There are many things you can do to be part of this growing movement--and only some of them involve sleeping outside.

Some misguided souls would say that the best way to help the movement is simply to look, listen and think. Therein lies the problem. Too many people are content to sit on their fannies and do nothing about the deplorable mess this country is in. They are content to let the next guy/gal do all the work.

Best thing the 'Occupy' movement can do is to sever all connections with the Communists and Nazis. They should dedicate to mahatma Ghandi's methods instead of provoking police action. This would eliminate most of their hypocrisy. Down with Communism and Nationalist-Socialism! Anti-semitism is a terminal disease!

I still believe that these financiers/brokers are gamblers with a very strong addiction that has been fuelled by the undisciplined sector that have been 'enjoying' with everyone's money. Well one of the 12 steps for gamblers is TO MAKE AMENDS - and until these addicts do, there will be no relent from anyone!

Make them pay it back to the public, restore the billions to the funds through tax levies on trades, heavy duty levies on derivatives trading, paid to a public fund monitored by the government.

The money would be paid back in months, not years!

Make it happen!

Excellent information. Thank you Cal. It's heartening to see this movement gaining momentum and being supported by such a broad cross-section of society.

You said it, Pat G !!! TY Cal for sharing this great info.

It's funny - in June I asked Dandelion what happened to the spirit of the 60's - where were those people, and more so, where were their children?
Well - THEY'RE HERE !!!

Lucette d - very interesting thought.

i BELIEVE THAT WE ALL HAVE TO ADMIT THAT THE OCCUPY WALL STREET PROTESTERS ARE DOING ABOUT THE ONLY THING WHICH CAN BE DONE, BY THE 99% OF US WHO ARE NOT WEALTHY AND THEREFORE ACTUALLY HAVE VERY VERY LITTLE POWER, TO BRING SERIOUS ATTENTION TO THE GREED AND UNFAIRNESS. THE 1% to 1.5% who are wealthy have no shame and don't care one thing about our nation or their fellow Americans and the other citizens of the world.

No wonder my Chase banker looked at me strangely when I expressed my appreciation that they were so good to me. "At least, my bank isn't one of the bad ones!" i said.

He gave me the strangest look but said nothing. ROFLOL

Please let the people be peaceful. The first thing to learn and do: that i see is that the people need to peacefully and assertively express themselves and know exactly what to do before they go to visit or occupy for a time.
The second thing: is that people can organize and go build their own lives and the lives of others by joining together to buy land -- so that each person may eventually own their own , and live sustainable organic gardening and organic farming, raise houses and barns for each person and family.
The third thing: If the people stay on wall- street too long, they are wasting their time-- unless they know exacting why they are staying and have some kind of plan of action.
O MOST IMPORTANT THING: change can happen in a pre-organized one day sit-in when with peaceful talks and signs to the leaders and non-leaders.
People know who they are, how long to stay, when to leave for a while, and when to return to occupy, if to return to occupy. A person may have something to say, and then it may be time to go on with their life and create their own job, so let them People do not need to feel pressured into this movement -- because there are other ways to say what needs to be said.
