Half of the "things done" don't mean anything at all.

This whole thing seems to have died down --- only to be replaced with student protests in Québec (for me and other Québec residents at least).

Can't help but think the two are related.

What did they think they were going to do, anyway?
It reminded me of the American Indian Movement in the sixties, when they occupied Alcatraz.

The sentiment was nice "Hay, get yer business out of our politics!", "We real po', and so is everyone else, and it doesn't have to be this way!"
But the actual ACTIONS that were taken...? Not so effective. I mean, the whole thing hinged around their physical presence.

MASSIVE BUMP

...So Occupiers consider it a victory that their 1% lawyers are getting roughly four times more than the movement is? The irony is delightful.
