92. Agreed.
That was perhaps an unfortunate implication I made. But it still doesn't change the fact that OWS' efforts do not appear to be directed at the people responsible for our current crappy system.

It's a very indirect -and therefore not very honest- war that is being waged, when the enemy is never directly confronted.

I sympathize with those who have been mistreated -and, yes, brutalized- by police over-reactions. But, again, was this what OWS was formed to prove? That local police sometimes behave like thugs?

OK. Fine. I think that point has been made.

What comes next? Helping the homeless? OK. That's fine, too. But is this going to make the politicians and CEOs change their ways? I don't see it.
