Occupy is losing support fast!

I predicted this would happen after they started throwing people under the bus who disagreed with them.

"I predicted this would happen after they started throwing people under the bus who disagreed with them."

Re-brand.

Find a new tactic. People are bored with taking over parks Americans have short attention spans. One thing that is not changing is the economy still sucks and a lot of people are sick of being broke. Add high temperatures, a pointless fucking election, austerity, guns because it's America there are always guns, (Fuck the cartels buy our guns with out a explicit government contract unlike the rest of evil America supports in the name of "freedom".) and we got a recipe for something. Good, bad, chaos, does it matter? Seems like we are all fucked anyway.

Think Camping In Tents In City Parks Is Realistic protest? 16.May.2012 03:45

Protests of some sort will certainly increase. They just won't include living in tents in city parks. That was a one-off stunt that worked very well, but seems unlikely to work again.

The old reliable unpermitted protests will continue.

DEMAND the simple padded score voting system NOW! It is so simple! Give yourself the POWER to deny any, or grant 10, or 11, or 12 votes, to as many or few candidates as you desire! Break the fake "two-party" stranglehold!
