No more intimidation, protesters. Also, get a permit, Solidarity Intimidators. Whose house? Everyone's house!

Meade, sounds like you would have been a hit in late 1930s-1945 Germany. Get in line and march like good little soldiers.

Now now, what do we have here? People asserting rights provided by our State constitution and annoying power! It seems that it is time for me to join these patriots, I am more than embarrassed that I haven't already.

If singing is intimidation, you're a fucking genius.

I happen to like the Solidarity Sing-a-long singers singing their sing song sing-along songs. I hope they keep it up. But they should follow the same rules that are there to provide safety and fairness for everyone who wants to protest in public space that needs to be kept viewpoint neutral.

If they refuse to follow the rules of getting a permit, that's fine with me but is what they want to demonstrate the fact that they apparently believe that the rules which apply to everyone else don't apply to them? Okay.

That's what the anti-Walker protesters did in 2011. How did that work out for them?

I agree - that was poorly written. Lukpac, why don't the Solidarity protesters just get a permit and follow the same benign rules everyone else follows? How hard is it to get a permit? What do you think they have to gain from acting in ways that make them appear to be petulant self-righteous jackasses? How will that behavior help them overturn Act 10?

I feel a little sorry for them but honestly, I hope they keep it up. I think their actions help Walker.

Everyone else follows? Who is "everyone else"?

How hard is it to get a permit?


It'll be interesting to find out, now that the new chief is in charge.
