59. She's trying--and I do not want OWS to "go away."
So please stop ascribing false assertions to me. Again--try reading what I actually say without coloring it with your bias.

I want them to EVOLVE, and get back to the messages of economic parity, social justice, Wall Street/banker corruption, the shrinking middle class, jobs, Congressional malfeasance, lobbyist influence...all the stuff that made them so "neat" in the first place.

I am sick of this "tent and police sideshow." It's been going on for WEEKS, now. I'm not hearing a thing about the topics I listed above.

The "Scream at cops, cops poke/arrest/teargas" scenarios (lather, rinse, repeat, and repeat, and repeat) are all the coverage they are getting, and it's all they will get if they keep fighting over the "Right To Camp Out." They need to take the next step. They have a shitload of money, and they need to spend it sensibly on stuff that will advance the OWS agenda, not on socks and tarps.
