commented on Seattle, You Should Be Better Than This
For people who are "chronically homeless" the better answer is improved mental health and substance abuse services, not places for them to shack up after they've knocked off their last Thunderbird of the night.

It doesn't matter what these protests are "about." These protests don't do shit for shit. The Iraq War protests didn't do shit to the point where they petered out years before the drawdowns even began. Occupy just created a bunch of 99%/1% jokes (at least in Honolulu it created a more cohesive homeless camp but that's about it).
Why do you put protests like this on a pedestal? They're ridiculous wastes of time and money. And yes, before the "oh so you're saying" question comes, I'm suggesting you do nothing if protesting is the only idea you have, which is a stupid idea.
