  •  Congrats to the protesters. The days when (5+ / 0-)

    radical right wing shadow government organizations like Ms. DeVos and her groups trying to break down the wall between church and state, and throw in destroying public schools, can hold conferences, plan the next attack on the public good are done.

    This is likely the first time this group faced a demonstration of people who oppose their hidden agendas, their funding sources and methods, and their strategy to break America state by state, rather than from the top.

    The week before last, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) saw the first demonstration at its Spring meeting in Cincinnati, and their national convention in New Orleans will have a much larger demonstration August 3-6 this year.

    The right wing takeover has now been exposed and it will be vigorously opposed from this day forward.  Wisconsin got the ball rolling, and we have a duty to keep it rolling.  And growing.  I was encouraged in Cincinnati because the organizers were from local unions and colleges, and a new generation now sees the threat and is willing to take up the challenge to defeat these corporatists, and dare I say the F word?  Fascists?

    Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
