    First, it's the New York Post, so there's a credibility problem with the story. More than likely it's overhyping things; after all, the main point of the story seems to be about the gripes of some drummers whose equipment was vandalized. LOL. Second, OWS, like the Tea Party, is obviously trying to figure out a structure that matches its values. That will take some time. The Tea Party actually went through the same thing, keeping itself so decentralized that the Koch brothers and Republicans were able to march in, centralize their platform, and co-opt them. Now the Tea party is essentially an arm of the Republicans. So far, OWS has retained its independence, but time will tell.

    Some will get involved in it.....the rest of us will do what we planned on doing all along - sit back and wait for it to play out.

    If you read any of the (dozens of) threads already posted on OWS, most "liberals" are in favor of the thought, in favor of the protest, agreeable with the premise and wishing them luck and godspeed but non-committal on the chances of it's survival, success or outcome.

    But you wouldn't do that, would you? That would mean you, too, keep an open mind.

    A catholic who favors the genocide of all Afghanistans, does not sound very catholic to this viewer...

    This is the 199th post on the OWS movement, Obsession.. Obsession.. Obsession.

    What happens when the OWS merges with the Tea Party, who will you be angry at then?? Got a dog??
