Skip to comments.Occupy demonstrates the messiness of democracy (National Gathering)
Posted on 07/05/2012 8:44:34 AM PDT by GVnana
At the Occupy National Gathering's information desk, where someone might go to ask why a meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. had not yet started at 7, a sign read, "Whenever it starts is the right time."
Among the roughly 200 protesters who gathered from Occupy sites nationwide, no one seemed bothered by the delay in the final meeting Wednesday, where they were to hear the completed vision list drafted in small groups that day. The protesters spent most of the holiday in Franklin Square debating items to include on the list, leaving them largely out of the sight of tourists traipsing Independence Mall.
Shortly after 7 p.m., Lauren Beller of Philadelphia, one of two protesters appointed to compile the final list, said that she had not yet started, but that she expected it would run about 70 handwritten pages.
About two hours later, organizers speculated the list might not be ready until Thursday morning.
Meanwhile, the protesters, many sunburned after five days camping out in blistering heat, spread out throughout the eastern half of Franklin Square.

Somethings these people will never occupy..
A job uniform
A Mensa meeting
When you smoke dubies from morning until night 7:00 is 5:00.
These folks who seem to be sucking at the public teat for the most part, would be funny if they weren’t so pitiful........
It's nothing than elitist agendas being pushed by cold hard liberal rich cash...
Occupy is bought and paid for by elites.
Sounds remarkably like Congress..oh, the irony.
This is truly slacker nation.
If I were an occupier, I’d be laughing and flipping everyone off too.
They’re running the country and no one is stopping them.
A bunch of Gandalf wannabes!
With an attitude like that, no wonder they can't seem to get a real job.
Which is what leftists say about the TEA Party in order to shut us up.
200 Occu-whiners out of 300 million Americans? Maybe they should change their slogan to “We are the 0.00067 percent”.
Check out early threads on Occupy and you'll see the links to Craig'sList - and the ads run for 'Occupy' protesters. Occupy is bought and paid for by liberal elites. Occupy advertised for jobs starting at $7 an hour.
YOU'LL NEVER see that for the Tea Party because we're a citizens group.
And if we weren't the real deal - if the Tea Party was hiring people to make a crowd - the suck-ups at the corrupt New York Times would write a story about it...
They will NEVER do the same about their little 'pets liars' the liberal elite shills paid to sit at Occupy.
