Please. Inform yourselves. You may come away still disagreeing with me, but I implore you to do a little research rather than accept the rhetoric.
My 7 year old and his 1st grade teacher at the rally outside the Capitol on the first day school was cancelled due to teachers protesting.
Wisconsinites: call your Senators and Reps.
Friends from other states: please contact your Senators and Reps and ask them to stand up for Wisconsin's Democratic State Senators. And if you're close enough for a road trip, come and join us at the Capitol.
We'd love to have you.
The Madison Police Department estimates that 35,000-40,000 protesters gathered outside the Capitol today, while Capitol Police estimate 5,000-8,000 crowded inside the building, according to the Department of Administration. No incidents or arrests were reported. 2/18/11
"They underestimated a protest by people who are used to standing on their feet all day."
