Sleep With a Protester!

Don't know if this link will work, but Olympia, Washington, 26 degrees F, with snow. That may not sound bad to people in Minnesota or Iqaluit, but believe me, in the Pacific NW this counts as Srsly Bad Weather. Fuck the weather, 2500 people showed up (and ran off the 200 teabaggers the oppos had bussed in) to support the protests in Wisconsin.  Look at all these pictures, how smiling and happy everybody is?  Can't help noticing the cop on the right in this pic, comparing it to the G20 thuggery last year.

It's not just the US, here's the chalkboard at Ian's Pizza in Madison WI. The protestors are freezing their asses off over there, and people  are calling in to have hot pizza delivered, from all over the WORLD--you know, like all those horrible Muslim places like Egypt ...  


Speaking of Egypt, the cops there joined demonstrators, and oooh, looky look what the Wisconsin police told Boss Walker when he wanted them to clear the Capitol.

“Law enforcement officers know the difference between right and wrong, and Governor Walker’s attempt to eliminate the collective voice of Wisconsin’s devoted public employees is wrong,” continued Palmer. “That is why we have stood with our fellow employees each day and why we will be sleeping among them tonight."

Maybe there's hope for this country yet.
