We now have more than 1,000 official "Occupy" sites around the globe.
Granny is with you.
We just want to see that smiling and determined smile in the right places at the right times.
You're a force that just won't go away. There are thousands of you.
Encampments are important, but where you are during the day is also important.
My question: What isn't occupied yet that should be, or would just be fun to occupy?
Here are some possibilities to consider:
*Restrooms in offices all around Wall Street and in big greedy financial institutions around the globe
*Bars and taverns in the financial district. But just order soft drinks and talk real loud and long.
*Places of worship, especially where the wheelers and dealers and major financial players go to worship or make their weekly appearance
*Yuppie and high end restaurants in financial districts. I know this could get to be quite expensive, but could you afford a cup of coffee?
*Country clubs and pro shops. Stop by and inquire about jobs, membership fees, booking events. In other words, tie up the staff with lots of questions. Maybe even dress up like a rich dude. You can wear a small Occupy button, if you want.
*Garden clubs, where lots of spouses (especially wives) like to meet.
*If you have the money, "occupy" some operas and/or classical concerts. Eat lots of beans a day or so ahead of the event.
*How about bidding at some of those high-class auctions that only the wealthy can afford? Not enough money? Stop bidding at the opportune time, or bid and oh-oh, you just don't have enough money because the dog ate it this morning.
*Apply for jobs at the best private schools and daycare centers. Don't frighten the children. Just keep staff busy turning you away.
*Occupy the phone lines to all your elected leaders and corporate CEOs. You just don't understand what the operator's telling you. Can she repeat that?
*Occupy your local city council and country commission and zoning board and human rights commission meetings, plus any other public meeting. Most have open comments at the beginning and/or end. Speak as long as they'll let you.
*Occupy a big bank, inquiring about opening an account, getting a CD, and then changing your mind over and over.
*With the Christmas shopping season coming up, be sure to occupy the exclusive stores. Try on some glitzy clothes. At the last minute, decide it's just won't go with your sleeping bag. But then, maybe those sexy skin-tight jeans would. Decisions, decisions!
*Occupy the media, including your local TV, radio and newspapers. Call, email, fax, show up and ask to speak with the editors. If they turn you down, do it again the next day and the next. Eventually you'll get their curiosity up.
*What about a cruise ship that the wealthy like to frequent? Can you get a job as a deck hand or server? If so, leave little secret messages here and there on tiny pieces of paper that state a fact about one of your grievances.
*Then there are sports events. Football, basketball, how about a half-time show all your own? Or start an Occupy Wave, a cheer. Possibilities are limitless.
*And don't forget about the grooming places, the barbershops, beauty shops, shoeshine spots. Gab up the Occupy Movement big time while you have a chance to embarrass those waiting their turns. Another expensive option, but remember, most likely these are the 99 percenters, too.
I think you get the general idea. Occupy started out as a movement to bring attention on Wall Street about the greed and fraud that pervades the area. But now as towns and cities all over the globe have added their own occupies, it's time to get more creative. Don't let there be a hiding spot where your nice little smile isn't before them.
And remember, even many on Wall Street itself are 99 percenters. You are doing something many of them can't do right now because of countless responsibilities at home and elsewhere. But they are with you.
Being a historic Occupier is a full-time job. Thank you for your service to your country and the globe.
