The overnight police raids in Philadelphia and Los Angeles that dismantled two of the nation's biggest Occupy Wall Street encampments leave just a few major "occupations" still going on around the U.S. But activists are already changing tactics and warning of a winter of discontent, with rallies and marches every week.

The camps may bloom again in the spring, organizers said, and next summer could bring huge demonstrations at the Republican and Democratic conventions, when the whole world is watching. But for now they are promoting dozens of smaller actions, such as picketing the president in New York and staging sit-ins at homes marked for foreclosure.

"We intend to use this for what it is — basically six months to get our feet underneath us, to get strong," said Phil Striegel, a community activist in San Francisco.

A progression for this movement is good. They are getting focused and that's a good thing. And they are keeping to the message. I am in hopes with the help of those of us not at these events, but sending messages to our senator and congressmen about jobs and no wars and taxing the rich we can get this nation back to a healthy economy of a strong middle class and let this globalization of lowering our wages and standards of living get behind us. Thumbs Up

I presume the "powers that be" thought they would all just go home.
(What time is "American Idle" on?)

Next year will be a whole new version of "Survivor".
535 contestants.
And we will see who gets "voted off the island".

It's sad to see that some reports are saying these calls to disband them are coming from Homeland Security...aka the White House.
