    This is going to cause people to loose respect for the protesters. Violence and death threats hurt your cause more than help.

    If Wisconsin voter's don't like Walker's bill, he will be gone when his term is up, they don't need to resort to things like this.

    You can' t shove a bill down people's throats without getting voted out in the next election. The Democrats learned that in the last election.

    Reminds me of this:

    In the fall of 1970, Karl Rove used a false identity to enter the campaign office of Democrat Alan J. Dixon, who was running for Treasurer of Illinois.

    He stole 1000 sheets of paper with campaign letterhead,
    printed fake campaign rally fliers promising "free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing",
    and distributed them at rock concerts and homeless shelters, with the effect of disrupting Dixon's rally.


    Just sayin'
    flyers, phone calls....
    Anything is possible.


    ( bet you young Righties didn't know that about Karl )

    They self-servingly "report" it -- now let's see if their evidence is true and the persons responsible for it. Not the first time the Right Wing has tried tricks like this before. And the Republican State Senators may not be themselves lying, but the victims of a hoax perpetrated by their own Right.

    So let's see who really made these threats, if they were indeed credible. The entire Left Wing acting in unison, a few loose cannons, the Right Wingers themselves, or totally false claims to discredit the Democrats.

    Oh yeah, they are credible because 2 suspects have already admited to it. It just shows the level some people will resort to.

    But, just so everyone understands here, neither the leadership of unions, nor the leadership of the Democratic Party or the Republican Party condons this kind of activity. These are the rotten apples and they can be found in ALL 3 groups.

    Some were physically carried out of the Capitol when refusing to walk out voluntarily. I think Walker is wrong with the way he handled this and he will get the pink slip whene his term comes due just like many Democrats did when they don't represent the people, but do your own thing with the health care bill. The American people do not put up with shit like this no matter what party you belong to.
