  •  Thanks for the great clip!! Farmers rock! (25+ / 0-)

    There are many wonderful people in this state. To underscore the breadth of support against this draconian bill and the undemocratic processes used to shove the results in our various orifices, I beg the diarists' indulgence as I post the following:

    As I rounded one corner of the Square, I ran into this woman. I stopped to thank her, as did many others:


    She is involved in the restaurant business in mid-central Wisconsin. I was so pleased that she braved the crowd, cold and took the time to attend that I walked back and asked her if she would allow me to take her picture with me. She is one serious lady and had people lining up to speak with her and thank her. I will also visit her establishment sometime on my way north and thank her again. I'd be willing to bet that, while there would be topics on which we would disagree, our values could well be very similar. We are not dealing with partisan issues; we're dealing with human issues. We are all impacted by what is taking place.

    Unfortunately, her story and this lady's commonalities with all of  us will never get mentioned in the media or anywhere else. Why? Because of what comes below.

    We have many volunteer marshalls wearing special vests whose job it is to assist others and keep the peace -- to which we are all committed, BTW. Interestingly enough, Fox requested that one of our volunteer union thugs guard their news truck for fear of vandalism. No other news outlet had to do that, but there was a guard there indeed, likely one they didn't have to pay for. The truck was never in danger of anything, except maybe having some signs taped to it, but that shows FOX's paranoia and complete misreading of the left -- not to mention the folks of WI. We have a sense of humor here and would rather laugh than trash. FOX is soooooo dumb. Some clever individual wrote something in chalk that tells it like it is.
