33. I was thinking earlier that we need a "Occupied Silenced Majority" to represent unemployed...
Edited on Tue Nov-01-11 08:46 PM by cascadiance
... people who are "occupied" by job hunting and keeping a low profile to help them get work and those who are underemployed that are working their butts off and keeping a low profile to hold onto their lifeline coming from these necessary but thankless jobs too.

Many of us in these categories feel very grateful to those who are out there every day representing them, and if all of these folks were part of the current Occupy folks' voices out there, the movement would be overwhelming in my opinion. I think we need to find some way to have this OSM ("Occupied Silenced Majority") a way of showing their numbers and voices without taking away too much of their time and anonymity so that they can survive in today's society and still be a part of what is needed to throw out he current corrupt broken system we have now.

I'd say perhaps have a web site that allows people to register anonymously and show their numbers in various ways there, but there would be those out there in government and other Breitbart types that would want to try to hack such a site to expose these people, or to try to alledge "fraud" in how the numbers are represented. Anyone have ideas on how we might have such a movement that isn't blocked by such logistics problems?
