Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The Overpass Light Brigade is a Milwaukee, WI, creative activism group that was forged in the Walker recall. We've grown since then, with over a dozen national chapters and some large scale collaborations in the works. We've been especially busy lately with our Romney and Ryan resistance actions, though often we take out topical messages rather than ones aimed specifically at electoral politics. One of our favorite highway overpasses happens to be right on the northern edge of Ryan country, so we've done a lot of anti-Ryan messages. The man running against him, Rob Zerban, has even come out on the bridges with us. We'll enjoy watching Ryan lose two different political positions.

I figured it might be inspiring to people on Kos to see some of our homespun highway messages. Welcome to The People's Bandwidth!

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

On the Beltline in Madison, WI... in collaboration with Shine Guerilla Squad.

This was in West Allis, WI, shortly after Ryan's lies about his marathon run and accusations that Obama was responsible for closing down an auto plant in Janesville.

Lucky voters in District 1 get to reject Paul Ryan as Vice President, and as their Congressman when they vote for Rob Zerban.

One of the biggest lies that Ryan and the Right is telling the American people is that their plans for "vouchercare" is a plan to save medicare. It is curious how a non-serious fringe idea has become a central tenet of the Republican platform.

Mitt Romney has made undisclosed wealth off of the labor of American workers through the offshoring of American jobs. This photo was taken at "Bainport" - the site of Sensata right before it is wholly moved to China.
Watch out when Romney's Bain Capitol buys your business. Your jobs won't be around for long. Get out while you are able.
I watch Mitt Romney being interviewed and am still shocked by how easy it is for him to lie. He is a hollow man, and it strikes me that his ruthlessness is interconnected with his "truthlessness."
Tomorrow evening, we go out with the message: ROMNEY + RYAN = SECRETS & LIES. It will be the last time we need to go out with our signs spelling their names. Reject Romney once, and Ryan twice!

To the streets, Kossacks. To the streets!

UPDATE: Tonight, we attended a Tommy Thompson fundraiser in South Milwaukee and had some fun in front of his tour bus. We were kicked out of the parking lot pretty quickly, but still got some good pictures.
