SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- The Occupy Wall Street message has been effective. They initially chose the right common enemy. The banks and bank bailouts angered not just the student demonstrators. The banks and financial giants generated anger among home owners, those who owe more than their homes are worth, millions who have lost their homes, or watched bank bailouts, or saw their jobs eliminated or threatened by the subsequent recession. Targeting the banks and government bailouts was an effective common theme.
But for a second time, Occupy demonstrators have targeted West Coast ports. A total media misfire. Ports are not banks.
