I just wanted to point out that one of our own, wmspringer, has done an unbelievable thing that I'm not aware any other kossack has done up to this point. He read this article about Governor Scott Walker trying to privatize hunting, and force hunters to pay out the nose to the tune of $2,000 to feed their families.

This kossack decided to do something about it, and he did. He registered and filed with the Government Accountability Board, and got documents notarized and sent in so he could raise attention to this very important issue by running ads on Facebook before the June 5th elections. He got a website up, called "Save WI Deer Hunting"and a donation page up on NationBuilder.

Another one of our friends here on Dailykos, 2laneIA, also got involved, and helped out wmspringer and I since we are both deaf, by making calls on our behalf, and communicating information back to us. She also wrote an action diary about this very important issue that ended up on the Recommended list, but it has fallen off.

I would like to ask you guys to help wmspringer, 2laneIA, and the many fighting badgers that are pushing back against the right-wing onslaught in Wisconsin. They may not have the millions that the Koch brothers do, but we have a goal of $800 that can be met by this community.

Once that goal of $800 is met, we will be running Facebook ads targeted towards hunters in Wisconsin that will expose Scott Walker's record on deer hunting, and help move a few crucial votes that way.

Can you please donate $20 or more to our goal of pushing back against Scott Walker in Wisconsin?
Please REC this diary up, donate, and SPREAD the word on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks!

By reccing this diary up, you are thanking wmspringer, 2laneIA, and all the wonderful kossacks who are supportive of this community-organized effort to push back against Scott Walker in Wisconsin. Thank you for taking ACTION!

Sat May 26, 2012 at 7:12 AM PT: Wow! Thank you all so much! We've met our goal, and then gone past it! We'll get another diary up today about the ads we'll be running thanks to your help.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
