I don't know if 20 is the right number or perhaps there should be different numbers for vocal protests as opposed to silent ones. It does seem to make sense that there is some procedure for certification of groups of some number so proper security and fire protection/exits can be in place.

Or should it just be a free for all?


Free for all worked for tens of thousands of protesters showing up.

Ironically, if 400 nazis showed up unannounced, the impact would probably be minimal. If they wanted their march to be greeted with anything but a yawn, they'd have to announce it, in which case the police could prepare.

Miles Kristan getting out front as the face of the SS is good for Walker and Republicans, but why now? Is there an election soon?

Are you equating the singers with those who falsely shout fire in a crowded theater (or those who fire guns in a crowded theater)?

Armed thugs who insist they need their weapons to take on the tyrannical government, yet always seem to side with the tyrannical government. Funny, that.

Round 3 happened today. Not as much coverage to see what happened.

From what I understand, though, the police put a signboard up stating that there was a wedding in the Rotunda at noon today.
The wedding actually was outside and was over by 11:45.
I am willing to believe that the wedding could have gone longer and, because of the weather, could have been forced to move indoors.
But after the last several days, it could also seem to be a thinly veiled ruse.

The point, exactly, why many of these people are simply wannabe and fake "patriots." Patriots generally stand up against government for the general welfare and for others, yet most of the righty fake patriots are in it for themselves only. As long as they can carry their gun, if some blacks are denied basic civil rights and the right to vote, they are just fine with that. Essentially they are selfish cowards.

I say

Let them eat cake...er I mean sing.

Let's serve little cupcakes made to look like the capitol building.

and of course, some Tea!

and for Pete's sake can some of you throw a comb through your hair and do a few warm ups?

shoulder's back people! smiles everyone! one two three.....

Actually, I don't believe the singers ought to be required to have a permit. Nor do I believe they ought to be required to have a permit to carry a gun inside the capitol if they wished. But that is a requirement too.

At least I'm consistent in my beliefs.

You know what the difference is between us? You fear what you don't understand, and I only fear some things I understand clearly. That, and the fact I don't a propensity to interfere with people making their own decisions the way you do. That makes you the bigger thug.

Alas, my negligence won't ever kill anyone, and you have an itchy trigger finger. I don't fear the delusional paranoid types who carry guns- I avoid them religiously.

I feel very sad to see so much judging, blaming, and attacking (here and elsewhere, left and right)...
and my own failures in transcending such (in self or system).

I long for We The People of 'America's Laboratory of Democracy' (WI) to model and inspire better ways of being, relating, resolving, and stewarding...
