  •  It's going to take... (13+ / 0-)

    ...one helluva social movement to get this passed, or anything like it for that matter.I'm imagining Occupy Wall Street on steroids combined with mass general strikes in major cities . And that would just be the opening act.

    A lot of people will have to go to jail and some to hospitals. But we've been through that before for legislation that was worthwhile.

    If that's what it takes, so be it...

    •  Don't let them pick us apart (8+ / 0-)

      Arresting a dozen 'troublemakers' is not a problem for the authorities.  Arresting 300 unified and courageous people willing to put their body on the line: no so easy. Don't let Walker's message of 'divide and conquer' come true.

      We all hang together. We fight together.  We overcome together.

      Make those fat cats with their hired ad and media thugs know that their mind games don't work when our backs are against the wall.  They worry about profit.  We worry about keeping our kids fed and not having to live on the street.

      WE can do it (and get off of the White (Black?) Knight coming to save us fantasy).
