Occupy Haight St.

I suggest a counter protest, Occupy Haight St., where business people show up in suits and network. The kicker is that they will close their businesses for the day so that all their employees don't get paid.

In reality, I don't think this is a good idea. Business owners (or at least bright ones) try to foster an esprit de corps within the firm (think Southwest Airlines)and alienating associates with such a ploy would be costly to owners. But isn't this the object lesson, that the protesters can do so because they have so little responsibly and so little on the line. The entrepreneurs who make the country work and provide most productive jobs can't take time off to lounge around pretending to do something. I wish the protesters would just try to have a bake sale and see the opposition and bureaucratic hassle.
