Tuesday Protest News Round Up

Jenna Pope Joint Legislative Hearing at 1pm tomorrow Tuesday 9/27 at WI Capital in Room 328NW - Urgent that any progressive citizens who can get to Madison be there and make their voices heard in person to protest a sudden attempt to further restrict the right of college students to vote using student IDs and the right of Wisconsinites to download their own petitions to recall elected officials - copy and repost!

Facebook!!! FLASH MOB TIME!!! SHARE!! We only have 1 HOUR to MOBILIZE!!
From Paul Ryan's FB page:

"LIVE at NOON CT today on this Facebook page, you can watch my health-care speech from Stanford’s Hoover Institution, titled: “The Optimist’s Guide to Repeal & Replace.” The President’s new health care law has made things worse. Going forward with real reform, the defining question in health care remains: Who is in charge? The government or the patient?"
For more information visit:

Jon Erpenbach
...I will not be running for Congress next year. Instead, I choose to stay here and fight. I will continue to meet every good intention on the part of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle with good faith of my own, because we can and must move forwward. We must bring back to our state the rights and respect Wisconsinites deserve. A better, stronger Wisconsin for our kids and their families is at stake, and that is a future worth fighting for.

It is Time for All Good People to Come to the Aid of their Country Facebook sells our personal information to private companies and third parties for data mining and continually sell opportunities to hack our private accounts. Their new changes hinder the sharing of hot links, and the linking of important environmental, social justice and other protest movements. Facebooks new policies prevent the aggregation of materials, and mixes the posting timeline as a purposeful effort to prevent interpersonal communication and organizing. Haven't you felt the security captcha's change when sharing important topics? Do you think the Nazi's get banned or security captcha'd when sharing racist and offensive materials? hell to the no. Facebook also has instituted "roadblocks" for accounts that are cited for "spam" which could be even spamming your own profile. These roadblocks force users to "identify" friends in photos. And for activists, that would mean identifying faces produced by facial recognition software in protest photos. Also the algorythims that target activists, seem to miss a lot of illegal racist activities and child pornography, which we have screenshot evidence of. Facebook gladly hands over our personal information to law enforcement, but is silent and untouchable when we need the information on accounts that are violating the law. They have even gutted the reporting tools in response to people demanding that facebook delete racist profiles. While we occupy wall street, we can all send a message to facebook and corporate investor's that we are the media. We will use our accounts to promote social justice and we will use our social media time to share information with others and post prolifically regardless of their roadblocks.

"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil OBEDIENCE. Our problem is the numbers of people all over the world who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their governments and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, {and} the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." - Howard Zinn

56,938 Wisconsin Jobs Lost to China - Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Blog

@ Governor Walker
I really like your Cindy Archer job program.
You started that program by eliminating civil service status for a number of high paying jobs in your administration, and changing them over to political appointments.
Cindy Archer who worked for you in Milwaukee County as your chief aide, was rewarded for her work in Milwaukee by you appointing her as the state deputy administration secretary, at a modest living wage of $124,000 per year.
Not bad work for a non union, non civil servant, political appointee.
Your program is a little puzzling however, since Archer transferred to another one of your politically appointed jobs, as Legislative Liaison at the Dept of Children and Families -- at a lower pay rate of only $99,449 per year. Although the previous person in that position, as a civil servant, was paid $39,128 less for the same job.
I wonder if the difference in pay is being made up by allowing Archer to get back dated on sick pay for 344 hrs and she hasn't even had to report to her new assignment, as she is cashing in that sick pay.
Hmmmmm does she need a doctor's note for being sick? I remember there was a big deal made over the Teachers who were demonstrating your slick Union Busing Program at the State Capitol, being threatened for using sick days, and having dubious doctors' notes!!
Maybe in your next address on jobs, you can tell us how to apply for the Cindy Archer Program -- it sure beats working for a living.

“Walkergate” Update: Archer Emails, and Van Hollen partisanship


Budget Blog: Darling, Grothman say Taylor should be removed from JFC

Lena C. Taylor
MILWAUKEE-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Black Caucus Chair Stephanie Findley following news that Scott Walker ally J.B. Van Hollen declined to assist Milwaukee prosecutors in a corruption probe of Scott Walker, after jumping at the opportunity to help in investigating former Milwaukee Ald. Michael McGee. "J..B. Van Hollen owes citizens, African-Americans in particular, an answer to questions why he and his office leapt at the opportunity to help in the prosecution of former Ald. Michael McGee Jr., even while his hyper-partisan office declined the request for aid in the investigation of his close "Tea Party" ally Scott Walker. Time-and-again, Republicans have insisted that there need be no attention paid to discrimination in law enforcement activities, to the point that Walker signed away protections designed to track and detail so-called "racial profiling." Van Hollen, meanwhile, has been a willing accomplice in creating the fraudulent narrative of widespread "voter fraud," that lead to Jim Crow-style suppression legislation that is among the most severe in the country, and which affects African-Americans the most. In creating this phony narrative, Van Hollen offered up any and all resources of his office. But now, his office cannot lift a finger. So, we ask, why does Wisconsin's top cop jump to help prosecutors in the investigation of a black elected official, while declining the same help when the tables are turned on his political partner?"

J Eric Cobb
To the protestors: Seriously you guys, you all really need to grow up. Grow up, cut your hair, get a real job after dropping out of college, run for office, become a shady politician, sell out your humanity, behave as a "good citizen should" by telling everyone else what to do, do everything your telling others not to, stab others in the back, lie to everyone, pretend everything is OK, don't fight for anything right, don't stand up for anything that matters, sell your soul for $1, laugh at others in pain, burn the constitution while wrapped in the American flag, pretend it's OK to take away other's rights, beat your kids, cheat on your spouse, drive while drunk, condone the abuse of animals, the environment, the poor, people of color and gays, force your religion on everyone, shoot down anyone different than you or that has a different opinion than yours, kill the innocent, praise the guilty, and while you're at it, ignore any other fellow human being who even tries to ask for your help. Now you're all grown up... Welcome to adulthood.

Weekly Larson Report: New Obstacles to Getting to Work and the Fight to Save Milwaukee County Public Transit

Chris Larson
Just finished with "Governor Walker's Commission on Fraud, Waste, and Abuse". They ignored the fact that one commission member, Cynthia Archer, resigned without explanation while her transfer to a new political position that gave her a 60% salary increase from the previous person. And she has yet to show up for it. Nothing discussed today had to do with fraud, waste, or abuse. Instead, Sen. Lasee wanted to talk about where the DOT puts flower beds. The level of absurdity for these Republicans continues to amaze me.

I don't know which troubling story about Scott Walker today I like more. The fact that he is trying to stop his staff member who was raided by the FBI from testifying in court in case she could speak the truth OR the fact that 6000 of the jobs he claims he created actually were created in other states. Give me an R, give me a E, give me a C......
