    at some point, because OWS is so disorganized theren't are't a ton of extra trash cans and portapoties.  

    When you look at the mostly middle-class TEA party movement, it's mostly a weekend affair, where you drive in for a day and then go back home, or maybe crash a town hall meeting of a congresscritter.  This is a totally different beast, with totally different needs.  Sanitation, trash cans, portapotties are all part of that, and exactly BECAUSE #OWS doesn't have main leadership means that it will remain an issue.

    That said, I have been down to OccupyDallas, and it is very neat and clean.  25-30 tents, all neatly staked up, no trash to be seen anywhere.   There are two, maybe four or five pics like the above, and they get ALL THE DAMN PRESS.  There is just no way to prevent it.  Hell, even if everyone shaped up, O'Keefe would probably pay a rube to do it so he could film it.  

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      that was a political statement. And it is disgusting, and not reflective at all of the kind of people at OWS so lets not make excuses for it.
