When the "Occupy" movement started, it failed to develop strategic categories of "focus", and became a rag tag program without a defined objective.

I contacted and attempted to join the local chapter, but they did not want to 'target their focus", so I did not get on-board, because it had no course direction and rejected the concern to develop a focus.

This was at a time, when the program should have focused on 'BANKING REFORMS", " MORTGAGE REFORMS", to force and demand a wide spread conversion to "fix rate" mortgage conversions, (which would/could have saved many homes and preserved equity in homes) but the group was not focused enough to approach that objective, so the spiral of Real Estate Devastation continued to spread like wildfire, while the Occupy movement remained unaware and unconcerned of the need to "focus". They resulted to be ineffective and amounted to little more than a series of camp outs on public property.

It had the opportunity to challenge "Outsourcing", it had the opportunity to challenge " Import Quota's", but it failed to focus, and lost its momentum as a result.
It had a great opportunity to become a dominant "game changer" in many areas of our economy, but the utter failure left many simply demoralized and they gravitated away and the program simply floundered for lack of understanding the value of "focus".

You seem to have drifted away from the Louisiana theme of this forum . Why don't you move your rhetoric to a more political venue ?

Far from it, Louisiana is part of the collective of States that make up the Nation, the discussion if read, addresses the quoted text from the individuals who spoke about Colorado and California.
The post further discusses the elements of similarity as well as variables which can and does reflect in and of how not only California was devastated, but how that reverberates across the nation to include Louisiana.

We have to become people who can conceptualize via multi variate factors and elements and understand the contrast and the similarities in how we have become a devastated state as well as our national devastation of which we as a state are very much so a part of it all. We can't think in one dimensional terms and not have grasp as to what is happening on the national stage as well as other states within the union, including Louisiana.

Please focus to be contributor than an attempted regulator of subject material, you have not contributed anything to the expanse of the ongoing dialog. If you think there are no parallels across the nation as to the devastation being suffered, then I'd simply say, step back look at the big picture and broaden the perspective. Or you may find a Thread which better suits your single variable focus. If you think the condition and challenges of Louisiana does not include elements of political among many other factors, then you have not been paying close attention, nor focused on the concept of the threads topic.
What does Louisiana Want to Become in National Imagery?

Occupy was a national program, which included chapters in Louisiana, therefore it is very much a part of the dialogs variables. It has the potential to address and change many things in how Louisiana functions in regard to focused programming, if it had focused. It may well have had potential to inspire other states in their focus needs if it had been successful within its own. It is very much so relevant in context of subject material, as is the point of National Imagery, is most certainly inclusive very much so of how it is politically viewed among every other element of being viewed.

The Louisiana Forum is not confined to simple subjects, of can one have chickens in their front yard, or if wild pigs exist in the state, and what is the traffic flow from one point to another, or if its allowable to have a dog in a rented apartment or etc...... It is as broad as the elements and concerns in and of all that effects this state and the people who reside within it. To try and limit the nature of what is Louisiana Forum in terms of subject references is quite a narrowed mindset which seeks to diminish the forum rather than explore its expanses is counterproductive.
Read the "Preamble" of the States own Constitution. It may be enlightening as to what is inclusive within the broad spectrum of relevancy.

I don't see riots in Louisiana. Perhaps you should move to Baltimore or Ferguson if you feel La is number 50.

What does your obsession with Baltimore has to do with the topic of this thread?

The suffering of cities and states can often be tied to the micro-managing madness which takes away from a progressive model. It is when position are frequently filled with people who are so determined to maintain the status quo, credit seeking by spinning in the same circles without advancing and promoting growth. It becomes a deterrent to progress. Many positions are filled by individuals bent on holding others back and in doing so they focus more on how to hold individuals back which translates into efforts, activities and aims, ultimately holding back the organization.
It's unfortunate but this problem is common within the Louisiana systems. It's furthermore an interesting study to review how these people are appointed and or placed in positions.
When system administrators do not know how to identify their 'bottlenecks", the system adopts more of the same and further chokes off the life flow for growth.

These are very relative elements as to how and why Louisiana continues to lag, it continues to fall, it continues to miss opportunity and within these negative scenarios, it becomes costly as the losses mount and the stagnation become symptomatic in crippling the organization; both within cities and state level areas of responsibility.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most unrecognized and of the most serious areas of why and how stagnation slows to the level of no performance and gridlocking comes into being. When those responsible to acknowledge these bottlenecks are unequipped to point it out and make changes, the situation and organizations simply fills with more bottleneckers, all pursuing notoriety and recognition in a desperate quest, until they become dangers unto the working individuals within the workforce and grid lockers when they fear they may not get their name on the recognition list.

Critical thinking and innovative development does not exist in the realm of their conceptualization of responsibility.

Louisiana has a great deal of work to address and deal with not only the current nature of these concerns, but to do so, it has to look back and learn and face how these mentalities and ideologies became to be within the core of how we as cities and state function.

Most refuse to look back and learn, that they may understand how to better go forward, but unless we look back and learn, we will produce more of the same and remain one of the lower performing States in the Nations, with cities which are challenged by the very same issues as what is discussed.
