Blue Truth

As I was trolling the net for visuals, I came across this lovely composition in blue that was posted at The Blarg.  After coming across some disturbing media coverage (see Mother Jones regarding Jeff Cox, an Indiana official, advocating using live ammunition on Wisconsin protestors. Excuse me, is this Libya or America? Oops, my bad, sorry Kent State) , this man’s expression and signage just hit the nail so hard that I figure it deserves a post all its own. Unlike other group organized protests with manufactured signs, there are all sorts of protest signs visible in Madison.  Some are hilarious, others obnoxious, but all are well-aimed individualized expressions of free speech and asserting a statement.  You’re invited to share any photographic or video gems you’ve discovered while following Mad-city’s  showdown with Koch Tool Walker.

Go Cheeseheads! Video Rally: Ground Zero Mad-City!

Oh the nbc15.com video of the protestors drowning out Wisconsin’s Koch Puppet Rep. Gov. Scott Walker’s speech shows one loud defiant crowd. It must have been deafening in that lovely capital building.  It requires more than a tad bit of patience to view the latest videos on nbc15.com so I thought I’d post a few recent videos here for any interested parties. But take note, the comments for each piece of local Madison news coverage are plentiful–some 900+ for one piece– and interesting to read. Yes, you can learn things right there on that news comment section from the folks posting. More than you might gather from the news coverage itself! Go figure! Then again let’s consider the location–Madison, Wisconsin–University of Wisconsin students and graduates in abundance. Many of them are much better informed than the mainstream news reporters.  This standoff has also received coverage on AlJazeera English online–a news venue I’m willing to wager the Billionaire Koch brother cadre pay much to keep from being on mainstream boob tube.  Okay, on with the video rally show.  Do note that the satirical piece contains “colorful” language so please be forewarned instead of offended.

 Keep it up, Wisconsin!

A begging we shall go, because the Koch brothers demand it. Walker working to make it SO!

Koch political puppet WI. Rep. Gov. Scott Walker has stated that direct deposit will no longer be available to the Democratic State Senators. They will have to appear in person at the Capital building in order to pick up their paychecks from the Majority Leader.  It is not clear from the statement if this also applies to himself and the Republican State Senators.  What word best describes this latest Republican strategy? Bribe? Blackmail? Bait?

 Oh  the Koch brothers want their union busting bill vote and they want it BAD! 

 Walker is having a cozy fireside chat with Wisconsin residents this evening. I’m sure it will be a revelatory one-sided monologue suitable for future Koch backed  Republican Governors’ handbooks for dealing with  vocal working class people exercising their right to freedom of speech and assembly.  

On at Each Little World there are more excellent photos by Mark Golbach.  I think this one captures everything at the core of the protests.
