Since the majority of Americans get cranky at the idea of "protests" (even if in their best interests) I was thinking one thing that Occupy could do to win over the populace would be to relabel the "protests" celebrations. Celebrate in advance the break up of big banks, big oil, big corporations and the passage of progressive taxes plus giving tax breaks breaks to the middle class where they are direly needed. It's just psychological but the public might be more up for a party than a protest.

I like the idea of Occupy parties, Occupy picnics, Occupy Festivals. Thanks for the inspiring idea.

Where is Donald Trump's Worldview Leading Us?

I want to step back a little from the constant strum of the latest Trump scandal to the most recent outrage, the Trump constantly popping into the news literally every day. I don't remember this during the Obama administration or any other presidency frankly of my lifetime.

Every day they look for some way to get in the news even if it's negative.
