I'm guessing that no more than 2-3 people.

That's far less than 1% controlling 100% of the money.

Will they share it evenly among the OWS or will they enrich themselves?

You fools are being played.

Why does it matter? Are you going to pretend to be a protestor to hit them up for money?

Follow @Flynn1776 on Twitter. He posts the craziest minutes from the General Assembly. A lot of it is about how this money is being spent. My favorite so far is 'Joe needs about $1500 for puppets.'

The smartest thing to do with the money is providing food/aid to the protestors to make the protest last longer... or you can waste it on political contributions or give it to the unions... I wonder what they are going to do with it...

And that's exactly what they've been doing. I recently saw on the news they are getting over 300 care packages a day sent down to them from people around the country sending tents, blankets, sleeping bags, and other supplies. They also paid out of this fund to pay entirely when they cleaned up the park, as to not have the taxpayers pay or the park's owners.

Yipee! More Pot for everyone!

**Twinkle Fingers**

I'm guessing OP is right. A few will control it "for the good of everyone." It took these people 11 minutes to figure out whether to allow someone talk for a couple minutes. It would take them 6 months to reach a "consensus" on how to spend it. Well, unless someone proposed pot. Twinkle fingers like crazy.
