    My mothers best friend she is not in a union but she is politically involved she went all the way up to Wisconsin to take part in the protests going on in Madison... Why would she care? Umm because she believes in the things i mentioned above.. Are you seriously that naive and biased and ignorant?
    I could play your game.. If im not in the military and a service member dies why should i care? Why should i show respect? Im not in the military...

    Could it be the influence of their teachers that are in the unions?
    Maybe but doubtful. Have any proof of this? Or are you just making up stories in your head again?

    Does not matter either way
    Actually it does. Its called being factually correct.
    You claim that you have this proof that Unions organized it and i want to see this proof you have...

    what they did was wrong and even the organization they were p[art of said so by trying to distance them from this protest.
    Well thats the organizations opinion. Good for them. But im still going to hold to my opinion and i see no wrong in protesting Walker at this ceremony.

    If it was or was not unions does not matter.
    Yes it does. Being factually correct.

    They were protesting a union issue and they disrespected the Special Olympics
    I would call it at workers issue. Naa they did not disrespect the Special Olympics at all. If they would disrespect the SO they would be all like "retards suck", or "retards vote for Walker", or harass the athletes or be rowdy and annoying. Didnt people at the ceremony even say they saw no disrespect in this protest?

    Do you actually believe that members of a union have absolute control over which citizens decide to exercise their rights of assembly and speech in public before the governor?
    It seems his "they" are the teenage protesters wearing t-shirts with "STUDENTS" clearly written across their backs.

    No disruption ? Groucho Marx understood human behavior so well: "Who are you going to believe ? Me, or your lying eyes ?"

    The students were disrespectful punk idiots.

    you keep insisting there was disruption. but according to the special olympics officials on site, there were none:
    Rachel Grant, a spokeswoman for the Special Olympics, said officials were nervous when the zombie protesters first arrived, but they turned out to be peaceful.

    "We were all a little bit on edge, but it turned out for the best," Grant said. "Nothing was disruptive at all."

    Kelly Kloepping, another Special Olympics official, said the protesters were respectful and did not diminish the excitement the Special Olympians felt about being in Madison to meet Walker and other leaders.

    "We feel it's really about the athletes," Kloepping said. "We knew the protesters were there, but they were respectful of our athletes."

    So, the Special Olympics takes a position so as to make the issue fade. Especially in WI where political stupidity runs deep, and the Special Olympics does not need to further antagonize the idiots in the video.

    And despite what you see in the video, and can imagine a bunch of Special Olympians wondering WTF in their own way, you embrace the press release.

    Libruls. Don't ask them about tomorrow in advance. They can only tell you once they get there, and check the wind direction, and counsel as to possible excuses.

    I have been in Unions and even been a shop Steward. I will no longer join a union and good thing is I live in a right to work state where i can't be forced to join a union like workers are in Wisconsin.

    Unions abuse power and are just another arm of the democrats.

    Is the protest not about the bill that unions were against?
