In a land of rule with law and order, rabble protesters would be met at the capitol like this:

I thought a judge had banned protesters from the Capitol after hours. Is the another case of union law enforcement sitting on their hands in solidarity with the protesters?

Howard Fineman on MSNBC saying this is a conspiracy among Republican strategists to provoke a violent, Sixties style reaction by students, unions, and liberals in Madison.

Fineman names Haley Barbour, the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove and others as part of the conspiracy.

Fineman says the Republicans want to get Obama involved to defend unions and paint the Democrats as extremists. He warns liberals to not take the bait.

Hmmm. I was waiting for the final line to be: “Howard Fineman involuntarily committed for massive psychotic break with reality.”

Sadly, it's gonna get uglier as the socialists will NOT go quietly in the night. The same will be happening in EVERY major city when the welfare dollars run out, or specially targeted handouts that have been going on for decades can no longer be funded.

It will get MUCH WORSE, before it gets better.

The positive thing in this mess is that those in "the middle" who ignored what conservatives have been seeing happening for years, are now seeing what we were talking about.

Fund-raising for the Progressives will be a MAJOR factor in the near-term, and Unions KNOW that the Progressives won't win in 2012 IF they can't keep the taxpayers' funding of Union dues going indefinitely.

That's what it's all about; TAXPAYER subsidies of the Unions and the Progressive Agenda.

The Socialist Workers' Party IS the SEIU, AFSCME, NEA, AFT, and every other pseudonym used by these public parasites.

Um, it’s after hours. The capital building needs to be closed, like a sane society demands. The protesters can spend the night on the streets.

I was watching the live coverage on 3 channels here - one of the reporters said that the assembly was going to be in session all night - and thus the Capitol would be open. Now, that might have meant the Democrat part of the assembly - as this is how they got the slugs in the building overnight originally.

"Um, it’s after hours. The capital building needs to be closed, like a sane society demands. The protesters can spend the night on the streets."

I believe that Governor Walker has every right to call out the State National Guard (they're non-union), and let them keep order. The Unionized police of Madison (and all over the State) have shown that they will not enforce laws against their Union brothers (and sisters).

You can bet the State-Run-Media will be playing up the "Un-popular legislation" and "polls show" angles 24/7 (they already are doing so on the SRM networks).

The calling out of the National Guard would be a great move, and keeping the protesters at a distance from the Capitol building itself would be wise, too.

Howard Fineman

Time to bring back HUAC and put Fineman on the list of communist agitators named to testify about his support for subversives who are stealing money from US taxpayers and union members in support of communist union bosses.

No worker in the US should be held hostage to unions period, compulsory union dues are unconstitutional under the first and 14th amendments, and the unions need to be stripped of their ability to steal money from workers paychecks on a national level.

If the workers love unions so much they will be happy to voluntarily send them dues.

There’s nothing patently illegal about a POTUS issuing an executive order immediately ending withholding of union dues nationwide, and ordering the National Labor Relations Board to get a Federal Court Order enforcing the Presidents decision

Lets fight it out in the courts, and lets make it a campaign issue, with the promise to end compulsory withholding of union dues one of the first acts of the new GOP Administration.

Its stupid to allow the left (Communists) to use the same mechanism the IRS uses to fund themselves.

In the Assembly, the repubs are the majority. When they vote to adjourn til the next morning, then the session is over for the day.

"The unions must have spent a huge amount of money on this protest."

Why not? It's just public employee union dues that came out of taxpayers' pockets, as always.

That's what this is all about: keeping the cash-cow known as "taxpayers" funneling money thru Union dues to the Bosses and the DNC.

One of the most under reported stories of the last election was how much money we cost the unions. (Of our money) Even in most of the races democrats won, they were forced to blow big bucks.

From the Journal Sentinel:

Madison — Demonstrators crowded the Capitol in a wild scene after senators passed a budget-repair bill in a hastily called meeting Wednesday night that outraged protesters and Democratic legislators.

The protesters yelled, "You lied to Wisconsin," and "Kill the Bill," as they pressed close to the doors of the Senate chamber.

As senators debated the legislation, a crowd of hundreds whistled loudly and roared their disapproval.

Tim Donovan, a spokesman for the Department of Administration, said that protesters were supposed to remain on the ground floor of the Capitol, but police allowed them to move to the upper floors.

He already did! OFA and the DNC are taking part in the recalls of Republican senators in Wisconsin, and the Governor next year.

How is it that they cannot see the underhanded way the healthcare law was passed and the way those protesters were treated by the media and the unions and call this situation unfair? I really wish someone would ask them.
