OccupyWallStreet: What they need

I was watching the LiveStream a couple of minutes ago before it got cut off.  Not sure if the bad transmission is due to jammed transmissions or whether it’s just the nature of the absolutely beyond crappy cell reception that is a common feature of New York City.  You’d think that in a city like New York, the technology would be the best and most optimized in the world, but you would be wrong.  It’s always been bad.  Don’t even try to take an old Tom-Tom to NYC.  The sucker can hardly ever find a satellite signal, which just goes to show how far behind we are as a nation and how little we have invested in infrastructure.  Where was I?

Oh, yeah.

So, Lorenzo(?) gave a bit of an update on the OccupyWallStreet movement.  He said that there are still places to bed down in Zuccotti Park if anyone is so inclined to visit there.  He said it gets cold and for those of you who aren’t familiar with NYC’s idiosyncracies, you can sleep in Zuccotti park but you are forbidden to put up any sheltering structures.  So, no tents, tarps, lean-tos or anything of that nature.  If it is October and it’s chilly, windy and raining, well, you’ll just get soaked through to the skin and cold.  This differs from what occupiers in other cities are experiencing.  Lorenzo says that campers are cold at night and would really appreciate donations of sweatshirts.  Lorenzo says that Wednesday is going to be a big day.

Also, they have a donations page you can visit.  They seem to be big fans of vegetarian paninis.  You can find a link to the donations page here:

  1. It doesn’t help that the weather this week has been really lousy. It’s cool and cloudy with periods of scattered showers.

  2. Infrastructure?

    Wasn’t it the republican 2008 convention city where the bridge collapsed due to neglect and shoddy engineering? That should have sent the message to the masses as to what’s coming after Obama is voted out and republicans take over again.

    All of this could have been advoided or at least mitigated if we elected a real Democrat instead of Obama.
