At least we know what they stand for now, even if it is nutty : Forum Post: Proposed list of OWS Demands | OccupyWallSt.org

I'll critique this piece of insanity and economic ignorance when I have more time. For now, I'll leave it to others. Let the games begin!!

But it was submitted by OWS participants, whether they are "official spokesmen" or not. Without an official leader and an official statement, of course the public and the media will look for something resembling it. Here's a suggestion for the OWS: get an official, unified, clear message!! Or stop blaming us for looking for one!!

I agree but this specific poster seems to be particularly insane. Make homeschooling illegal? None but the most hardcore commie wackos would get behind that.

While i can agree on some of the points on that list much of it is just wacky and aint never going to happen, its almost as if some one who is anti OWS wrote it just to make the core OWS movement look worse than they actually are.
Much as i agree with their right to protest they certainly arent making themselves look believable,in this instance our friends on the right have a point when they say these OWS protesters are coming off like a bunch of bums and anarchists.
My advice to the OWS crowd is to get rid of the homeless,bums and transients that have infiltrated the core,lose the tents,face paint and dressing in rags and up the whole quality of the movement,get fewer but more viable objectives and get a leader.

If the OP had bothered to read his own link he would have read this, unless he beleves that bchang1987 is the leader of OWS. Say it aint so man.

Yes a post by a blogger will derail an international movement. What will Rocketboy32 posts do for the libertarian movement?
