    The campaign has really surprised me. I am really excited to see people discussing problems in a peaceful, intelligent, and community oriented manner.

    That’s right, nobody can predict the moment of revolution … but I bet it will be sometime between getting kicked out of mom’s basement and being told by your girlfriend that you will need to start helping out with the rent.

    Glad to see the positive media coverage is increasing, here’s hoping the movement is not hijacked once the more institutional groups get involved.

    Can anyone tell me when we went from;
    “Yes we Can!”
    to
    “It’s someone else’s fault!” ?

    I think it was about the same time that the largest banking institutions in the country raped the financial system.

    Because government policy played no role at all in the housing collapse.
