Occupying Main Street

I have to admit, I’m still not seeing a clear message from the folk protesting on Wall Street. The best I find is a list of proposed demands written by anonymous, and hoping for approval. What seems more pressing is our main street, the house next door, the strip mall a few miles away where three of four storefronts remain empty.

    Then you’re clearly not paying attention. How can you write something so willfully ignorant like that? Google it if you don’t know any better for crying out loud. And don’t get mad at me for calling you out, you’re the one who made the willfully ignorant comment.

    Stop biting your own face off. For crying out loud.

    I’m not mad at all, just ignorant. I saw your site, and agree we have a crisis. Unlike the Tea Party, or either Political Party, I’m still not clear what the proposed solution is. Do you have specific proposals to fix the problems?

    @Joe, you don’t see a singular message because there doesn’t appear to be one. That’s part of the reason why the movement has so much momentum; the challenge is once they define “clearly” and “succinctly” what they stand for, will they be able to keep things flowing so well?

    BTW, to the earlier commenter, people discuss and write about things they are ignorant of all of the time. There’s nothing wrong with it; however, the snark is certainly not necessary… “for crying out loud.” After all, it’s a blog post!

    Roshawn, much thanks, I was afraid I was missing something. It’s a real shame mbh had a chance to enlighten my readers and me, yet the Occupy Wall Street official site isn’t even clear. I know there are issues, the bailout of the fat cats while the (pardon) average Joe is left to fend for himself. Also to mbh, this wasn’t a researched article, it was a political cartoon, with a brief comment. I stand by that comment, no idea what your goals are. No idea what your manifesto is. Your declaration.
