[NRO -- The Corner] "....Following the vote on the bill, GOP senators were hustled out of the Capitol via an underground tunnel that takes them to a government building across the street. For the past few days, senators have made this walk and been loaded onto a bus that takes them to their cars parked in a remote area. Yet after the vote, protesters had apparently caught wind of this process and surrounded the bus full of senators. One witness told me he had seen protesters surrounding the bus and trying to rock it back and forth..." How the Wisconsin Senate Passed Walker's Bill

Unless the DNC thug union goons use violence and lawlessness to stop the WI assembly from passing the bill passed by the senate last night AND from being signed by Walker and THUS becoming the LAW OF THE LAND—protests will be useless.
I’m only concerned that the Leftists will burn Madison to the ground as a warning to others.
If the WI Nat Guard is not on high alert right now Gov Walker should be impeached for stupidity.

The best part of this story...is that bus companies are cleaning up. They probably are making 200 percent more profit than they did a year ago. We might have to start bringing up buses from Mexico....to help haul SEIU folks around because we simply don’t have enough buses.

Hope you are right—because as things are going the decision at Madison may well bankrupt the most lucrative slush fund the Democrats have.
And when evil and desperation combine...

“....Madison Police Department Sergeant Dave McClurg, who was protesting while off duty, said he was concerned with the dangers of security procedures during the Senate’s hearing. State law requires the Capitol to remain open after its designated hours during any public meetings.....“If someone gets hurt tonight because of the security set up, I would testify for them,” McClurg said.....”

Let the thugs get loud, get nasty, and get obnoxious. The more they show their arses, the sooner Wisconsin taxpayers will tire of their tactics, and demand they be cleared out of Madison. Walker and the R’s MUST hang tough, here; this could be the most important battle in the taking back of our country.

The union leadership / socialists want want the Wi NG out there...it gives them a May 4, 1970 Kent State opportunity which is the last thing Walker needs.

Take a look at the number of women there on the live feed. Imagine a 20 year old NG with riot shield standing over a prostrate crying protester...The MSM is just waiting in the weeds for this to happen. The big Republican bullies “stomping women and children.

Let the union thugs rip up the capital, makes better tv for our cause by showing everyone what this trash stands for.

Get this bill through final house vote and SIGNED by Gov. Walker ASAP. Gov. Walker is in extreme danger from the commie demonstrators. I hope he has the national guard or a private firm protecting him. Prayers to Gov. Walker.

Time to confront union thuggery. I suggest a squirt of wasp spray.

Very effective, more so than pepper spray. I've advised single women of all ages that I know living along to get and keep close a couple cans of wasp spray for self-defense. The attacker will need to go a hospital emergency room to get their eyes irrigated as water along will not suffice. Additionally the attacker doesn't have to get as close to the victim as is the case with pepper spray. Wasp spray can get out to as much as 25-30 feet in a steady concentrated stream thus keeping the attacker a safer distance away.

Oooooooh! It is wonderful to see the self-entitled union goons scatter like cockroaches when have a light shined on them. I hope they protest until they pass out. The more they show their true colors the more others will see them for what they are: self-centered destroyers of a Free America. I only hope nobama shows up there singing “we shall overcome” or some such slogan to seal the deal. Of course, rain is supposed to end and the weather will be warm here in WDC so nobama surely has several tee times already arranged.

The dirty little secret about the Union thug bully protests around the United States of America. The bully protesters are being paid to protest, most, if not all, have never held a job and many are not even in a thug, bullying Union to begin with!

By any means necessary!

I imagine that protesting is a mandatory paid vacation and that it was negotiated through collective bargaining. It's a sad state of affairs when the union business takes precedence over the paying job.

While white anglo saxon protestants are on the endangered species list, the EPA has ruled that they are a toxic polutant and it would be harmful to union leaderships' piggy banks to use them in such a manner.

If this is anything but the classic definition of insurrection, I’d have to see it. Demonstration is one thing, burning buildings, fighting, threatening or carrying out violence against legislatures or elected governors is insurrection....only one remedy, take em out.

BTW, if the NG cannot handle this rabble, guess who has to be asked to quell the insurrection? Non other than the thug in chief himself who can authorize fed forces to put it down...don’t hold your breathe.

After the bill passed last night, I was thinking the same—Walker needs to call in the National Guard. Or maybe the assembly and senate of Wisconsin needs to leave the premises entirely and meet somewhere else for their own SAFETY.

I don’t believe for a second that the people demonstrating in the capitol are our teachers, fireman and policeman. No, I believe many are professional activists, anarchists, socialists. Maybe, just like in our nation’s capitol, they need to have all these people SIGN IN. Get some control!

how many of these union paid thugs are being brought in from IL?

We have now teachers, not the majority breaking in through windows and pushing police aside to get into the house and before some loony left wing nut says this is the peoples house then does this mean the GOP can leave MA as they’re a minority and then republicans from NH plus other states break into the MA state house?

If that did happen imagine the media’s uproar, bias at it;s best.

FOX and friends had the pro union nut on reporting from WI.
He tried to spin it as the protesters are done by, the GOP was wrong.
Jeff not sure of his name but he used to report from MI on GM and ten he always spun it for the unions and for GM, cHEVY ETC

What was sick was seeing his face after his report and having that big smile on his face while leaning into the camera knowing he got his spin on the facts and even started with his report saying I will give you a different view.

My comment was addressing a situation where the NG and state police could or would not address the problem.

Got to see first hand what happens when the NG and state police got called in to put down a riot in Newark, NJ in 67. They should run those images on jumbotron for the rioters along with a picture of the Gov on the phone calling out the NG. They need to see the use of 13000 rounds of 308s and all the shot shells expended by the state police there in less than 24 hours. IMO, that would quell the problem and if not, well, no loss except the cost of the ammo.

Alinsky thinking. If they're thinking at all, yes, that's what they are thinking. Police brutality will suffice but Natl Guard brutality would be much more effective for propaganda purposes.

Personally, I hope 0bama sticks his two cents in! Nothing discredits 0bama quite like 0bama involvement.

I’m so tired of these people trying to pretend they are fighting “for working families”. What about the VAST MAJORITY of working families here in Wisconsin who are BROKE - just like the State Gov’t is BROKE (where do they think their wages come from anyway???) - if they were at ALL concerned about working families they should be supporting Governor Walker and the GOP’s efforts to CUT COSTS for WORKING FAMILIES!

Another thing that REALLY ticks me off — WHY do these liberal jerks think their health insurance rates went up so much that it will bankrupt the state if they refuse to pay for any of the increases? The answer: OBAMACARE! They force these laws on us, and OUR health insurance premiums go up all across the board, but now they want us to pay for THEIR extra costs, too???

OK, that’s enough for now... I hate starting the day ticked off like this. Wish I could make it over to the airport at lunch to tell Walker in person how grateful my family is that they are standing up to these bullies. It’s about damn time!
