Hey speak for yourself!

I'm still not convinced we're not the same person.

Yes, I am getting older. I've been doing that for 64 years now and see no reason to quit now. I worked hard for every wrinkle and gray hair. Not really surprising to see this much ageism among the 'progressives' and, no, I'm not Bdog and he is not me.

One person's snark regarding your appearance hardly corresponds to "ageism among the progressives," no matter how uncharitable it may be.

But welcome back anyway.

How about a NEW songbook...
that BOTH sides can sing...
where EVERYBODY wins?

For example:

On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin
Reach for higher realms
Find a way to heal the fighting
Save us from more hell

On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin
We can reach such realms
To serve the light and all of life
In ways to make us well

On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin
Help us find the faith
To choose and act in strength and love
And serve all life as well

In soccer that would be known as taking a dive.

Hopefully it gave the officer a little cause for concern : )

How do you turn the tide on these guys?

In comparison to what Jay, the Cap photographer, did?

That too many members of the police, staffers, and whomever are over-reacting, which in turn causes similar, no matter how weak, reactions from the protesters.

I just thought it was more of a psychological move to give the officer a taste back.

I think there is a lot of truth in this statement. There seem to be a lot of cameras on Kohl-Riggs when the event happens. Not just watching something in his direction, but pointed at him.

Unfortunately it turn out to make Riggs look like a dipshit who obviously took a fall. In the end I think it does more harm than good to the S.S.

One thing it did do was bring out some lovely trolls on Youtube:

savagerum 2 hours ago
The queer liberal threw himself to the ground when the cop touched him lol. It's obvious the cop even tried to catch the queer before he hit the ground.

Which goes to show, generally decent people shouldn't try to be underhanded, they suck at it.

Well now the Cap Cops are threatening to arrest ANYONE who is in the Rotunda and viewing the SS, including State Legislators, employees and tourists. They have deemed the SS events as illegal events. Since when did watching a putative illegal event become illegal? All of this for what, misdemeanor citations? The Gov. must figure that if he can make the SS look bad, we'll stop talking about what a shithole of an economy Wisconsin really has become.

In today's WSJ, Walker said that too many people were making to much of the Solidarity Singers. Never mind that he replaced the Capitol Police Chief and made new rules, so he could give them maximum attention...
