I saw some fantastic signs this weekend at my third consecutive saturday marching around the WI capitol building. Its been great to see all types of Wisconsinites coming together.
As you can see from these snaps, we have fans of both Battlestar Galactica and Harry Potter on our side. But my favorite experience from this past weekend was meeting a trucker with a hand made sign reading “Walker is an asshole.” He’d just changed it a few minutes before, he told me, because words which begin with vowels should have “a an.” A teacher marching next to him had pointed that out … and lent him a marker to make the correction.
He was delighted with his lesson.
Of course the Department of Administration (on behalf of Governor Walker) had made a sign of its own. This is situated outside the only entrance that WI citizens are currently allowed to access their capitol building with. You can click to see the sign enlarged but here are some selections of newly prohibited items:
- Animals/snakes (huh?);
- Crockpots and other cooking appliances;
- Massage chairs/beds;
- Mattresses, sleeping bags, blankets;
- Musical Instruments;
- Signs or flags on sticks;
- Tape (masking, painters, duct, scotch, etc.)
Ok, Walker, here’s one more sign for you:
