  •  Americans tend to look down on people (4+ / 0-)

    who protest like the dirty f**king hippies they detest. That attitude makes sure they don't see themselves in the protesters and therefore don't go out and support them.

    What is strange to me is that a great deal of the folks on this site feel the same and will not support protesters and will not go out and join them. And get upset because people within the protesting groups are often of several different opinions about why they are protesting. They have a difficult time understanding about coalitions.

    •  I stopped helping out at Occupy (4+ / 0-)

      when one of the people there keyed my car while I was unloading solar panels and cell phone chargers I had built for SFO and Oakland. I actually caught the guy for a moment, and he just went "whatever" and ran off. Very off message :( This is how you make sure your phone can run RA or qik at a protest and not crap out after 20 minutes. This can be done quickly and with no prep. If you order th parts instead of going to rat shack, and get them in some quantity (50/100) you can make these for literally two bucks each.

      I am an electrical engineer, run a reasonably high traffic server, and build autopilots and drones for a living. If you have technical questions, ask away and I will try to give a cogent answer.
