I doubt it however, PTS probably leads 500+ people in his command and I lead about 160 people in my job and the principles of leading people are the same no matter the reason your leading them.

Organize by the rule of ten. The lowest supervisor/leader is responsible for ten people. The next person up the ladder is responsible for five groups, the next group up the ladder is responsible for teams/500, the next person up the ladder is responsible for five teams/2500 people. Make sure everyone knows the objective the the restrictions. Claim victories whenever possible, treat everyone with respect and think of everyone as a recruit to the cause. Discipline in private praise in public.

So.. How's the OWS movement going. Haven't heard even a squeek from them in the last several weeks.

A quick check of the OWS website has them calling for protest over Nigerian oil subsidies? Really??? That's what it's been reduced to.. the promotion of oil consumption in west Africa?

What exactly am I paying attention to? I read the article and it talks about a "handful of protestors". There are a "handful of protestors" down the street who want the local library to extend their Sunday hours. I thought OWS was a movement to change the world?

Who knows? My guess is you pay attention to Fox News and wingnut radio. Their clients tend to be deliberatively uninquisitive and thus criminally unaware.

Even you'd have to admit, we've changed the parameters of our political dialogue to the extent that one of our core messages is being used as a basis for a presidential campaign.

If a speech Thursday morning by one of his top economists is any indication, President Barack Obama is going all in with the 2012 re-election message of stemming the rise in income inequality and reforming a system that’s increasingly perceived to be rigged in favor of the rich.

Given the ineptness and unresponsiveness of the main stream American news media, the fact we've even gotten noticed is an impressive accomplishment.:rockon:

From "word of the year" to "person of the year", we've infiltrated your consciousness, challenged your world view, and fucked with your conscience. That pisses you off and IMO, that is why you continue to malign us.





Peace Takes Strength wrote:OWS: Rest in Peace

Tell that to all these folks. Go ahead, click on any link to see what the people are doing. Better yet, go down to the OWS site near you and SEE FOR YOURSELF. Try it, get inquisitive, go there in person and investigate for yourself. Until you do that, you and I both know you're just talking out your ass wasting all our time. :roll:





Hope you had nice holidays! :angel:
