Controlling our own image because image is everything: Volunteering is us but who knows it besides us. Vandalism by outsiders in Seattle & Oakland gets hung on us by TV media sensationalism because “one picture is worth a thousand words”& many people watch the news without really listening. One image controller would be the “Adopt a Street” program which I quote, “The County will provide each organization with a plate (size of letters dependant on size of organizations name) stating organizations name as part of the Adopt-a Street program.” This is free favorable publicity that is worth a fortune. Another would be to invite all artists to create their images of how they see OWS. A traveling art show of one of the most colorful happenings in America since Woodstock would be a masterpiece in itself. We should have representation on, American Idol, The Amazing Race/500k ea.to winning pair.” etc. Occupy is only our name but we represent everyone and everything so why not show it off?

Without a charismatic leader and a focused agenda it's going nowhere.

First Columbia took on their drug lords, now they're taking on their billionaires...why can't we?

America’s billionaires are driving this nation’s poverty epidemic. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

As we speak, working-class Americans are getting screwed over by policies that favor the wealthy elite, and leave everyone else in the dust. As a result, more and more Americans are living in poverty.
