Occupy Wall Street—We’ll See What Happens

(Update 10/03/11—Here is information about the Occupy Houston event that will be held on October 6.)

The Occupy Wall Street protests are entering a third week.

I don’t know if the protests will lead to anything of consequence or not.

The Los Angeles Times has written that the effort lacks a clear focus at the moment but that it may have some potential.

Liberal columnist Charles Blow of the New York Times is not so far hopeful that a movement will take off from these protests.

Here are some facts about Occupy Wall Street from The Nation magazine.  The Nation is a weekly liberal magazine.

Here is the Occupy Wall Street website.

Various Occupy Facebook sites are being created. There is one for Houston and one for Dallas.

Go on Facebook and see if there is one for a place near you.

We’ll see how this all turns out over the long haul.

In the meantime, see how you can get involved and support these protests.

No matter how it all ends up, these Occupy demonstrators are taking responsibility for their nation.

The work of freedom and democracy is up to each of us.

This fact is something that many Tea Party supporters understood well in 2010.  Tea Party folks are still motivated as 2012 nears.

Every day is a new day. Every day offer a new chance to move in a hopeful direction.
