    All I can go by is what I see, and what I see is uniformed officers of the state in the Capitol building taking a political stance.

    If they want to take off the uniforms, declare they are police officers and do what they did I'm all in favour of that.

    But I have a problem with people doing it in the State uniform of an institution that is supposed to be a-political.

    I would have a problem with it no matter how much I agree or disagree with the message.

    I fish...a lot. You can blame the poor unsuspecting fish that gets hooked by a sneaky lure, but its hard to have much sympathy for the moronic dorkfish that swims after a bare hook BEGGING to get caught. The people that fell for this video have pretty consistently proven themselves to be...well...dorkfish.

    I don't understand why anyone (least of all so-called "liberals") would want to waste taxpayer money on public unions instead of spending it to, you know, actually HELP people in need. I mean, I can understand the unions themselves raising hell about the prospect of not getting the taxpayers to overpay for their services...I just don't understand why anyone ELSE would support them.

    Meh, whatever. If the people of Wisconsin want to waste their limited tax dollars overpaying public employees instead of getting more public services, I guess that's their business.

    How was Walker being put in physical danger by this sign?

    Also, I'm starting to wonder if they weren't told the sign said REJOICE and just didn't bother to look at it when they hung it.

    But you think someone would come running up the stairs to the tell them. Maybe no one in that building likes Walker.

    methinks once again you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to the Tea Party membership. you do realize that you can't just read public union diatribes and pass that off as evidence? The Tea Party is an interest group pushing for less government. Public Sector Unions have a strongly vested interest in more government. The latter is not exactly going to be straightforward about the former.
    You do realize who you know that are police and military that are teaparty sympathizers encompass's a very small circle of people right..? your perception is just that, just like mine...
    When I talk about the teaparty it is not about indvidual voters that agree with them...I refer to the teaparty identified politicians and their rhetoric Cpwill.
    Whether you want to admit or not...or anyone else that enjoys seeing public workers attacked...they provide a service to all of you and they get up everyday and go to work...they are not getting anything for free...
    This is mostly all jealousy and misinformation and denial that the public sector workforce has been SCREWED royally by the teaparty types...who cheerlead for the CEOs...the fundamental creed of the teaparty is they want no new taxs and tax cuts and want that taken from everything middleclass under the guise of smaller govt and debt reduction, taking from SS..Medicare and public workers when its really about them wanting more.....you like many other CP just refuse to acknowledge that its the middleclass private sector that has taken the bashing ..and the rich have just gotten fabulously richer some of which has been at their expense...
    Ill keep my point of view, until you can actually say something that can convince me to change my mind....if you want to think the teaparty is an interest group...and not an instrument of the rich and the far right. to force the gop further to the right then fine...we have a difference of opinion

    Then maybe you should identify in your posts that you are talking about them specifically. Otherwise you're just lumping everyone under the same roof. And that tends to send a different message than identifying specific people.

    well, the cops I know are all veterans and family, so it's a smaller circle. but inside the military, you get a lot more conservatives than any other types, and definitely alot more tea party than non.

    what, you mean like Colonel Alan West?

    Whether you want to admit or not...or anyone else that enjoys seeing public workers attacked...they provide a service to all of you and they get up everyday and go to work...they are not getting anything for free...
    <---- I"m a public worker, lpast. actually, scratch that, I'm a public servant. not a public master or a public opponent. that i why i do not unionize.

    This is mostly all jealousy and misinformation and denial that the public sector workforce has been SCREWED royally by the teaparty types...who cheerlead for the CEOs...the fundamental creed of the teaparty is they want no new taxs and tax cuts and want that taken from everything middleclass under the guise of smaller govt and debt reduction, taking from SS..Medicare and public workers when its really about them wanting more.....you like many other CP just refuse to acknowledge that its the middleclass private sector that has taken the bashing ..and the rich have just gotten fabulously richer some of which has been at their expense...
    actually the incomes of the higher earners dropped more than the standard for middle class during the Recession - due mostly to their being more dependent on the market for their income.

    what you seem to refuse to acknowledge is that "public sector unions" =/= "the middle class". what's good for the public sector union isn't necessarily good for the middle class, and what is bad for the public sector union isn't bad for the middle class. their interests are, in fact, far more at odds.

    Ill keep my point of view, until you can actually say something that can convince me to change my mind....if you want to think the teaparty is an interest group...and not an instrument of the rich and the far right. to force the gop further to the right then fine...we have a difference of opinion
    an instrument of the rich.... cmon man, don't you realize how crazy you sound? next you'll be telling us about a secret international cabal that controls the freemasons and pulled off the 9/11 attacks. The Tea Party is no more an instrument of the conservative rich than OWS is an instrument of the liberal rich.
