The Math does not lie
We are all cheeseheads today. There were 70K people today in Madison, according to the police department. The SEIU reports quite possibly 100,000, that were there. This keeps growing.
To all Americans who have a sense of fairness and realize what is at stake Madison is indeed ground zero for the reawekening of the country. This is Shock Doctrine at it's best, and shock doctrine resistance at it's best. I am sure neither the Governnor, nor the RIGHT WING forces pulling the puppet strings, expected this level of resistance.
Truthfully this is spreading and will soon come to a town near you. And if WI serves as a guide the fascists who'd love to return us to the 1880s are truly the minority. So how many members of the Tea party were bussed in? Best numbers was 3,000...
Now I want you to compare this.
70,000 (Official PD number)
3,000 tea Party Members.
Do you see a problem here? Is it starting to make sense? Oh and to the media... stop lying. Imitating NIle TV is not going to help you. It really won't. In the age of Twitter and social media it will not help you either. That is the truth. So reporting the truth might help you better than pushing that pro-corporatist agenda you love to push.
And to the tea partiers.. wake up and smell the coffee, you got a weekend because of those unions. you got an eigh hour day because of them... living wages, you guessed it, vacation... yep... so if they manage to crush the unions, you will be the first ones to cry like little children when you realize that oh boy, where did my vacation go? You mean I got to take a 50% pay cut? I could go on... and once again, if they get it, organizing will be ilegal. Perhaps then, and only then, you will realize just how much of a tool you have been.
