POLL: How Do You Feel About Occupy's Suburban Sprawl?

The 'Burbs are Occupied and Lexington's among the communities with budding occupations. What do you think about this suburban sprawl? Take our poll or let us know in the comments section below.

It’s official: Occupy Wall Street has swept into suburbia. And, according to the interwebs, the movement is making its way into Lexington.

Lexington resident J.J. Krawczyk has started an Occupy Lexington Yahoo! Group called lex-occupy. And, according to Boston.com, Occupations have popped up in Natick, Needham and Netwon, as well as Lexington.

“The clearing of Dewey Square is something to pivot on and I’m getting a local e-mail group together, finally, to generate some discussion,’’ Krawczyk said in the story posted yesterday on Boston.com.

In an email to Patch, Krawczyk said he’s been busy with local issues, such as working on websites for the upcoming debt exclusion and School Committee Chairwoman Mary Ann Stewart’s re-election campaign, but the Yahoo Group is gaining critical mass. 

According to the group’s description:

lex-occupy is a forum that allows Lexington residents and those with Lexington connections to connect with others in the community who are generally supportive of the Occupy movement in order to explore, debate, and plan in a constructive fashion.

So, with that in mind, we want to know, What do you think about the OWS movement's migration to the suburbs? Take our poll or let us know in the comments section below.

Americans generally go along and don't complain. They assume personal responsibility. They think that if they don't have a job, its because because they are not looking hard enough. Now everybody except the 1% and their sympathizers and apologists, recognize that --- due to income disparity (the rich getting richer faster), lack of transparency (backroom deals), accountability (three years after the 2008 financial meltdown and no banksters in jail) and the influence of money in politics (e.g. Gingrich getting $1.6 million to lobby Congress) --- the economy is in bad shape and there are reasons for that that can be corrected.

Lexington JPC has been demonstrating every 1st and 3rd Sunday from 1-2 PM since before Iraq was invaded. One of our signs reads AMERICA'S RICHES FOR AMERICA'S RICHEST. We welcome any who oppose war. Bring your own signs and flags. First Parish Lexington has just formed an occupy support group that meets after church on the second Sunday of each month from 12-1 PM.

To My Flock, Most members of the Occupy movement have returned to their mother's basement. Krawczyk can protest using a computer and never leave his mother's basement. Your spiritual advisor, Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III
