  •  That is seemingly the desire of some (9+ / 0-)

    The reality here is asymptotically approaching what used to be considered hyperbole, and I'm split on whether "Police State" or "Authoritarian" is the more disturbing part of the phrase.  They seemingly go hand-in-hand and are of great vicarious comfort to a disturbingly large segment of the people of this state.

    •  That elements within the Conservative movement (6+ / 0-)

      have pursued a 30+ year strategy to cultivate, indoctrinate, and inflame their supporters by appealing to the basest elements of human nature is reprehensible.   The purposeful damage done to Wisconsin's body politic for political and monetary gain is the greater tragedy to me; and that damage has manifested itself in uncounted damaged personal relationships.

      Unfortunately, what happened today will be "ripe" video footage that will only further Wisconsin ReTHUGlicans' divide and conquer strategy.
