    You were there and people saw you and everyone else protesting.  And that's the win.  

    Walker is insulating himself behind more and more security.  He's changed the rules on our right to assemble to keep people away from him and the Capitol.  His bubble is now being made of steel and concrete, but it's being penetrated.

    Imagine that on Tuesday, when the petitions were delivered, he was out of state at a Wall Street fundraiser and it was reported in the news.  Additionally headlined by our normally lazy media is the fact that he cancelled all Wisconsin media interviews because he was "too busy", but found time for Milwaukee RW radio hack Charlie Sykes, national RW loon Rush Limbaugh, Faux sNewzzzzz Fox and Friends, and Faux sNewzzzzz Greta Van Sustern.  

    It was a slap in the face that our media will remember and these guys have normally been Walker water carriers.  Their coverage has been changing - slowly, gradually, millimeter by millimeter because people are showing up, doing things, being persistant, and the trickle of Walker and GOP evil that is oozing to the surface.

    Never underestimate the power of just showing up.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
