Real News. Real Funny.
xanadian: Occupy Wall Street doesn't lead anything. Except maybe drum circles. These have to be other guys. Or the news is lying./or maybe they learned something
DarkSoulNoHope: I still.don't trust the Red Cross after the 9/11 money fiasco.
Frank N Stein: Remember when Occupy Wall Street was going to smash the status quo and half of fark was dickriding them?
Magorn: xanadian: Occupy Wall Street doesn't lead anything. Except maybe drum circles. These have to be other guys. Or the news is lying./or maybe they learned somethingYou know, maybe "community organizing" isn't such a useless skill after all. (in fact it's a highly prized specialty when you give it its other name "logisitics") During Katrina relief efforts, the actual hippies from the Rainbow Families organized something called "the New Waveland Cafe" that fed more victims and volunteers on a daily basis than any other relief effort in the area, and was on the ground faster than even the Red Cross.I heard similiar reports from several major disasters that groups who ordinarily organize "villages" or "theme camps" for Burning Man are damned effective at organizing relief efforts too (which makes sense, after all they already have generators, giant tents, drinking water and food wholesale connections, big trucks etc)
Mugato: I do remember people accusing a collection of protesters calling out the Wall Street system for being an institutionalized system of corruption. I don't remember any hippies.
