    comment about the uprising in Madison, WI in early 2011 and how Walker and his head of the WI Dept. of Administration were furious that both the Dane County Sheriff and the Police Chief of Madison refused to put their officers into the Capitol to keep order.  As the Dane County Sheriff put it:  "We are NOT going to be the "palace guard"."  So, Walker had to go to the State Patrol (willing ass-kissers), game wardens, and whoever else with a badge they could scare up.  But, it also occurs to me, what IF this had occurred with the Pentagon having been given extraordinary powers?!  I have NO doubt that Walker would have called on the military.  Jeez, this is scary and no one should be brushing this off as nothing to worry about.  We, as a country, are a hair's breadth away of heading into some really scary stuff.
