I had the same reaction before burying my head in shame that I believed a word he said in the first place.

TV lives & dies by ratings. Ratings are a perverse version of a popularity contest that is intrinsically tied to the almighty dollar. The higher your ratings (within your market, for a local station), the more you can charge for advertising time. Rates are set quarterly. Sweeps months (when the ratings count towards rates) are February, May, August, & November. November sweeps began Sunday.

The higher your market is, the more sensational your stories will be when they air during sweeps because more money is on the line. This is why WCNC is delighted to give Larry Sprinkle free reign on Halloween, because it's going to help boost their ratings in the November sweeps.

I get it that people are fed up & that banks are a big part of it. They played fast & loose with money, got bailed out by the feds, then turned around & denied operating loans to small businesses & caused those businesses to fail, putting even more people out of work.

What I don't see is how camping out in cities & holding hands while singing Kumbaya is going to accomplish squat. Just call me an old fart, but if you're going to protest, have a clear, concise message. Whether it was civil rights, the draft, or women's rights, you used to get a clear, concise message.
Absolutely agree! And effective leaders (protest leaders) use the media.

This group has failed to use the media - even tho they plainly had the attention for a while! They simply lacked exactly what you said: a clear, concise message.

No, you can just read through and find it. I mean this topic is not the first one where I have stated it.

If any such meeting was intended to be kept secret, like illuminati meetings and such , it would be kept a secret.

Conspiracy theorists, lol...
brian you too are welcome to go listen to the video or read the text that usually accompanies it.

I am going to make assumptions then rather than digging through 50+ pages.

Where did I mention the 1% and what they are categorized them as? Or that I have mentioned them at all singly?
We have been confined to discussion on this forum and in this thread to the OWS movement as it applies to Charlotte, thus . . . it has created some constraints as to what can be discussed w/o this getting moved to the political forum.

No one has said that BofA is the only target of OWS - but BofA is a big player - and since they are in Charlotte . . . hence the discussion.

Well if they are your consistent thoughts I'd think they'd be "handy" without you having to search for them.

Nope. Internet debate etiquette dictates that the person or persons stating the case present the facts themselves.

I'd rather spend time finding my own proof to debunk your theories as opposed to seeking out the proof you use just to continue proving my point. Same result, double the work? Not really interested.
