      This is the OWS message being pumped out by the media as we speak.  No one on TV news (which is where most people get their impressions of things), and I mean no one, is talking about the purpose behind OWS any more.  Only Occupy vs. cops.

      We reach for the stars with shaking hands in bare-knuckle times.

      •  OK, so at the November 26th GA, OLA (0+ / 0-)

        reached consensus on the 'Objective' to oppose 'corporatism'.

        At the November 27th GA, OLA reached consensus around a 'Demand' devolving from that Objective to demand an end to 'corporate person-hood.' Please note that this Demand achieved 11% consensus at a GA attended by some 3-4,000 people! Absolutely amazing.

        I had and have reservations about each of the afore-mentioned D&Os, but did not hard block either.

        So the hard work of crafting Objectives and Demands is continuing, regardless of what BS you might hear in the MSM.
