It's just a core of about 500 people who have camped in Zoccotti Party at Liberty Street and South Broadway, under the shadow of the erection of the Ground Zero Freedom Tower.   Could this fizzle?   Absolutely.   Is it inevitable at this point?   Absolutely NOT!

More people, many more, know about the October Event in Washington D.C.   I say, so what? (Sorry, Rob Kall.)  All that's going to happen in D.C. is already conjoined at the hip to the money that the Democrats must raise from Wall Street.   You may go.   It may feel good but it will have no lasting significance.

What is happening in NYC is embryonic, democratic and authentic.   If it doesn't work this time we, and I will be part of this, will be back.

The enemy is clear, it's money flowing from the banks, the hedge funds, the financiers and the corporations to Washington that is the problem.   Not your congressman, not your senator and not Barack Obama; they are just pawns being played by the money.

These patriots in Liberty Park (on Google Maps now as Zoccotti Park) don't have a dime.   I talked to them.   They came with bedrolls and recycled cardboard.   The most expensive things this protest has are video cameras and millions of dollars worth of police "protection."
