#OccupyWallStreet? Ok, but why? No, seriously -- I don't get it.

People are jumping up my ass because I had the temerity to express some criticism about this Wall Street occupation business. I think folks missed the tweets where I expressed support for the *cause* but concern about the *goal." So, I slapped this baby together. Hopefully it'll make some sense. If it doesn't? Can't say I care too much! Read More

wow. these wall street folks are all over the place. I suppose if you’re going to get out and shout, why not? but still...funny
Karoli @Karoli
Why? RT @OccupyChicago: More than supplies, we need people! Head over to the Fed Reserve. #occupychi #occupywallstreet

@Karoli exactly. we all know why wall street sucks. so what are you going to do about it? it’s SO disorganized. aimless.

@Karoli To expose the consequences of the wealth of the nation being concentrated in the hands of 1% of the people. #ocuppywallstreet
Imani Gandy Corn 🎃 @AngryBlackLady
@janjamm how are you exposing any consequences? i understanding protesting, but “exposing consequences” doesn’t make sense to me. #p2
Imani Gandy Corn 🎃 @AngryBlackLady
nope. there were goals in arab spring. RT @PatTibbs: @AngryBlackLady @karoli @occupychicago R we seeing Egypt/Tunisia/Libya/USA "spring"?

If one person compares #occupywallstreet to the civil rights movement, imma cap somebody. The SNCC had clearly defined goals. #p2 #TFY

Get mad. Protest. Awesome. But what next? You people need a damn plan, and saying so isn’t being unsupportive. #OccupyWallStreet #p2 #TFY
Imani Gandy Corn 🎃 @AngryBlackLady
Tahrir Sq started off disorganized, but they had a plan. They wanted to oust Mubarak. Again, what is the goal? #OccupyWallStreet #p2 #TFY

@WendyStankevich Your plan is to get the attention of the MSM and then the will talk about issues that matter to the underclass? Really?

@WendyStankevich I mean no disrespect, but the media is all corporate-owned. They aren’t going to speak positively about this cause. #p2

@WendyStankevich they ARE covering it. perhaps not to your liking, but they’re covering it. what are you hoping to gain from this?
Imani Gandy Corn 🎃 @AngryBlackLady
@WendyStankevich media coverage of a movement without a clearly defined goal -- an action statement -- won’t convince voters. #p2 #TFY

@WendyStankevich i didn’t say adequate coverage. i specifically said “not to your liking.” #p2
Wendy Stankevich @WendyStankevich
@AngryBlackLady Ok, you say so... I have ceased to debate the point with you.
Imani Gandy Corn 🎃 @AngryBlackLady
ok then... good luck w/ voters writ large. peace. RT @WendyStankevich: @[me] Ok, you say so. I have ceased to debate the point w/ you.

It's like banging your head against a wall, sometimes. People just don't listen. Rush to accuse you of "not getting it, man." #p2 #TFY

Spent nearly 24 hours asking the same questions and some fracker accuses me of being pro-Wall Street. Ballistic does not do my response justice. All I see is a bunch of privileged kids in the media capital of America creating a distraction while the presi

I took part in anti-war demonstrations in the late 60's. We had a goal, stop the war, and we tried peaceful demonstrations to get our message heard. I won't knock what's happening with occupy Wall St, but until they have a cohesive message, the MSM will c
