Yes you did say that ...I was thinking of actual specific and detailed suggestions. Something more than down with corporate greed.

I don't think the movement had a very unified message....among the occupiers. Because if that was the goal why talk about the salaries or bonuses of people on wall street, cost of education, etc, etc....

Why wasn't the protest be in DC forcing changes in the election laws? Why not protest 528 million dollars wasted on a solar company? or the GM bailout or all the other bailouts?

Why not protest the politicians who take corporate money? or awarded wasteful contracts.

Did you have guest speakers or politicians rotate through? Did you get direction from Ny or some other rally?

Do you have candidates that your local movement supports...are they affiliated with either of the major parties.?

Thanks D
