    Followed by an apology that you all accepted.

    I'm sure that had something to do with Occupy becoming irrelevant.  You've earned some major class and integrity points bringing it up though.

      suddenly cookie cutter?

      Just because I'm not posting every hour does not mean there isn't Occupy news.

        general assembly been established?  How is it working with the existing authorities to change things?  Who has it gotten elected, directly - not just through some vague attribution of "they changed the debate"?

        •  Why are you asking for an incipient orginization (2+ / 0-)

          to:

          Provide you with the format for interaction you desire.

          To spend time advertizing their daily interactions on a local level to change things.

          Get someone elected immediately when that isn't their primary focus.

          Boxes are good but sometimes you have to let chaos rein, it will happen whether we like it or not. Occupy provides a nice buffer for the coming storms, quit trying to squash it.

        •  "Who has it gotten elected?" (4+ / 0-)

          Again, you're confusing it as an arm of the Democratic party. It's not and it never was. It wasn't there to get Democrats elected.

          P.S. I am not a crackpot.

            According to OWS people theyre the ones who defeated Romney. Which got Obama elected.
            For which they modestly give themselves almost all of the credit.

            And for this, Occupy Wall Street is largely responsible.
            So, according to OWS, the Democrats evidently have Occupy to thank for defeating Romney even tho  Occupy maintains it is no part of the Democratic Party. gee thanks you guys but is that what you really wanted? so many people saying so many things. Everything from Obama's a dictator to Obama's aa torturer. Hard to think OWS wanted to see a torturing dictator elected.
            No wonder then that the only evidence we saw of Occupy during the Democratic convention was the ones outside protesting. That says pretty much all we need to know about the Occupy/Democratic relationship.

            Happy just to be alive
