    During the worst of it, Walker had to bus in Leos from conservative parts of the state, because the locals refused to crackdown. I remember marching and seeing local Leos sing along. Hell, there were a few who would protest with us, before and after shifts.

    We knew this was coming. We warned them. And if Republicans try to do it, we'll pack the Capitol with a hundred thousand people again. I can make a road trip! Besides, I've been dying for another slice of Ian's pizza.

    I've seen some hardboiled eggs in my time, but you're about twenty minutes

      and a whole lot of those who belonged to exempted unions did, too.  They know it's the Divide and Conquer strategy in play.  

      Sadly, however, the leadership of many of the police unions are GOP to their dying day regardless of the consequences.  Like Republicans in general, unless a GOP policy bites them personally in their butts, they just go along as a loyal supporter.

      As liberals, we comprehend on a deep level that we're all in this together.  Injustice to one is injustice to all.  Injury to one is injury to all.  It's what makes us different.  And better.

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