Yesterday, Dave Blaska, part of the new era of "conservatives", felt that the best way to petition the government was ask for their permission to do so, THEN go where and when they were told, and sing their praises! Blaska, who the news shows could not give enough airtime too, was able to prove his points perfectly! Unfortunately for Blaska, the point he proved was not the one he was going for!
Let's start with the arrest.
This unnamed man was arrested for SILENTLY holding a sign that read simply - "Article 1, Section 4."
Not only was he alone holding the sign, the letters on the sign did not reach the 20 member threshhold. Yet he was arrested and hauled away in handcuffs. YEs - HAULED AWAY IN HANDCUFFS. Proving that what gets you arrested is NOT not getting a permit but instead saying something that the PArty Leader does not want to hear(or read).
Article 1 Section 4 of the Wisconsin State Constitution reads as follows: "The right of the people peaceably to assemble, to consult for the common good, and to petition the government, or any department thereof, shall never be abridged."
Secondly, Blaska tried to have radio personality Sly Sylvester arrested for asking him a simple question!
Dave how do you like your state funded pension?
See Dave Blaska is a former elected official and state worker. You pay his pension. YOU pay for him to be able to run around the state and do childish pranks in the name of Scott Walker. YOU pay for him to have numerous forums to talk about how horrible it is that YOU one day will be getting a pension! Dave has never offered to give a penny back on his state funded pension, see unlike YOU he earned his.
Apparently once you take out a permit you decide who can and can not be in the Capitol and what they will be doing. An hour's worth of power must have been all consuming for Blaska! It is nice that we have three police agencies spending time at the Capitol, its not like they have anything else they can be doing. It is more important that we keep the police in Madison to make sure Scott Walker or Dave Blaska's feeling never get hurt! It's only tax dollars, its not like they have to pay for it!
Unforrtunately, the one person NOT arrested was this republican thug!
As is the theme for this blog, BUT wait there's more: While never being overly creative, the right decided the best way to prove a point was to sing thinly veiledracist hateful silly songs (badly I might add):
But WAIT, There's more. It appears that Mr. Blaska was giving out twinkies to participants! I will give Dave the benefit of the doubt in that I am sure he was making a political statement and not judging his peers.
Blaska’s event lasted about a half hour, after which he handed out Twinkies to celebrate “American resilience.”Lets take a look at what Twinkies "celebrates", which is everything that the republican party loves!
* Corporate greed
* Unemployed Americans
* Misperception and Lies from the right to push an agenda
* Corporations giving you less for more money
* Jobs outsourced
* Sh*t food!
I always say that when people tell us who they are, we should listen!
Yesterday David Blaska and the modern day Wisconsin "conservatives(term used very loosely)" spoke volumes!
PS: Want to know whats wrong with Wisconsin? Today on WKOW Wake Up Wisconsin, Blaska received about 6-10 minutes an hour of TV time, Wisconsin Ride for Kids was afforded a whole two minutes!
