My advice to Occupy

Whenever I hear the phrase, "Occupy movement" I bristle. A movement, after all, stands for something.

I suggest that Occupy stand for restoring the Glass-Steagall Act. Not restoring Glass-Steagall and a laundry list of pet peeves, but for restoring Glass-Steagall exclusively. There is a broad coalition of people that would get behind a stance like that, essentially everyone except lobbyists, politicians, and big-job bankers.

Clearly Occupy needs focus, otherwise it will have accomplished so little for so many at a time when the need is great.
