    So you and Dan Carlin know how to improve on the Occupy movement?  That's great! (Full disclosure: I do not speak for the OWS movement.)

    When can we expect your 25,000+ person food drive in Scarsdale and Grosse Point?

    And what are your plans for preventing 25,000+ demonstrators from looting in pillaging in the neighborhoods of the 1%?

    •  I expected, and accept, this critique (0+ / 0-)

      However, I don't think that just because I'm not out marching in the streets that I'm not able to provide a valuable view of the movement.

      If you listen to the podcast, he points out that the Teaparty movement suffered from roughly the same thing, although their extremists tended to be pro-White Power and the like.

      So, while I'm not getting off the couch to organize the food drive, I was hoping that this might provide useful food for thought for those of you out there actually showing up in the streets.

      That's the problem.
