Hello My Dear,

I don't have a picture and besides, even if I did, I don't know how to load it.  It makes me proud to see young people fighting the good fight.  I really hope this is the incident that causes everyone with a conscience to stand up and be heard.  Living in central Texas makes it difficult at best to be heard.  However, I am big and loud.  So I just keep shouting. 

Humboldt is a light to the rest of us.

Hi Kaitlin,

Great job! We travelled in WI just a few years ago and LOVED it there.

Unfortunately, regarding the pancake breakfast, my husband's work schedule conflicts. If there is something for a Wednesday or Thursday however...

Have a good day!

Thank you Kaitlin.

Have you been following the story in Wisconsin? We have, and hear that Ohio and New Jersey governors are planning the same. The thing is, that part of the bill in WI gives Gov. Scott Walker and his republican buddies virtual COMPLETE control over the state. Now, today, 2/18/11, It has been announced that in Nashville, TN they have quietly voted against collective bargaining for teacher's unions, etc. The vote was along party lines, but the republicans won. No public notice was given in advance of this vote.

People can go to DemocracyforAmerica.com and join the virtual march in solidarity of the workers and democratic state legislators in WI. This site shows the areas where people have joined the virtual march, and I must say that the majority of the nation has joined.

BoldProgressives.org has an open letter to Gov. Scott Walker. Apparently he is still considering calling out the national guard on the demonstrators. State troopers in WI have been ordered to go to the home of the Democratic caucas leader to force his hand. MoveOn.org is asking people to put a note on their FACEBOOK page stating the following, "Today I stand with the teachers, nurses and all public employees of Wisconsin who are fighting for their rights. If you do too, change this to your status for the rest of the day."

Please pass the info on, as we are ALL inder attack from the republican agenda!

Thank you and have a good day.
