Marching around the Capitol, the spirits of all are friendly. It is easy to strike up a conversation. It is also easy to say, “Thank you.” Who are we most saying that to? I would put the police officers at the top of the list. They stand by, keeping their political viewpoint neutral while in uniform, but with smiles on their faces. They make it plain that they appreciate our peacefulness, and our efforts to clean up after ourselves. We all know their unions are not included in Scott Walker’s bill, so they are safe from this union-busting attack. However, what Walker does not seem to realize is that union red blood is thicker than Republican blue blood water.
According to the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association’s Tracy Fuller (who is their Executive Board President), “I SPECIFICALLY REGRET THE ENDORSEMENT OF THE WISCONSIN TROOPER’S ASSOCIATION FOR GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER.” Do you hear that, Guv’ner? The WI Troopers who voted for you, endorsed you, told their families and friends to vote for you…they regret it now. You can read much more about their “regret” and how they are now on the side of the protesters on their website.
I hope that while Walker can’t be recalled until January, the Republican WI State Senators are taking note of all who are turning against those who are standing with him on this….
