Madison Wisconsin February 26th Union Shows Its Muscle
En route to Madison today I was uncertain what to expect of the now two week protest against the corporate reorganization of Wisconsin society under the ostensible direction of arguably the worst governor in the state's history. I was not disappointed. If nothing else Walker has energized and educated a huge number of Wisonsinites in the methods and motives of the republican corporate elite as evidenced by the 100,000 who showed up in subfreezing temperatures and snow today. This whole process has been a life changing experience for hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin workers and students. Many of these people are the same targeted by republicans for lifestyle and xenophobia issues such as gay marriage, abortion, and illegal immigrants. It will be much harder to push this bullshit in the future when people consider personal and societal well being.
