I'm in Orlando and everyone is talking about Wisconsin. The slobs who are occupying the capitol building won't even move out long enough for a mop and broom to be used -- disgusting. I wonder what these hippies would say if we trashed their homes.
Look, I'm all for peaceful protest. I may not agree with them, but they all have the right to be there. But they trashed the building, and more importantly, they DEFACED THE VETERANS MEMORIAL in the capitol. Tear gas would be too good for these morons.
We have a hard deadline of tomorrow for a bonding commitment, and if the Democrats don't come back and vote, we'll lose $160 million dollars. I wonder how many teachers will lose their jobs because these crybabies won't DO THEIR JOBS AND VOTE.
I'm sick and tired of hearing from the left that this is "wiping out the unions". This is about saving the budget of the state of Wisconsin. We must balance our budget, and we can't print money to do it (like the Federal Reserve can for the US budget). Get your butts back in your seats and vote!
UPDATE: I was asked earlier how many signatures are needed to successfully force a recall election. The correct answer is: 13,537. We'll get there. I already have 2 dozen from my neighborhood alone, and there are at least 500 of us gathering signatures.

I attended the organizational rally for the Recall Wirch drive today. It was a cold, snowy day in Southeastern Wisconsin. I estimate that 400-500 people turned out over about 3 hours. Here are a few pics:
I was pleased with the turnout, and pleasantly surprised at the enthusiasm and energy shown by all. Frankly, I thought my wife and I were the only two who were pissed off enough at Wirch to show up. Boy, was I wrong on that score!
There were perhaps 50 total counter-protesters...with "I support Wirch" signs, along with "Stop Threats to our Union" signs. There were also some inside the Parkway Chateau...but no confrontations.
I've got my Petition Pages and will Pound the Pavement Pretty Promptly.
