Proud to be a Cheesehead

Standard

Yesterday’s rally in Madison was clearly unbelievable. Well over 100 THOUSAND people protesting through the streets and at the Capitol in wet snow and below freezing temps. No one arrest. I witnessed not one negative incident. People were so friendly and polite. Impossible not to bump into people while making your way through the crowd…I cannot count the times I heard, “excuse me” or “thank you”. Friendly smiles covered the crowd like a big cheesy blanket. The most polite thugs and rioters EVER. 😉

If this stand, if these protests don’t accomplish the fight against this bill in the end…we have still gotten much out of this movement. At least I have. I have a restored pride in Wisconsin. I have a restored gratitude for the spirit and passion of the masses. I have a restored faith in humanity. The kind, generous and spirit filled actions I have seen take place in the past 11 days had been more than remarkable.

I brought trash bags with me yesterday so that we could pick up any trash we could see on the ground. I do not want anyone to ever call our demonstrators slobs. Perhaps it was the covering snow, but I saw no garbage. There was nothing to pick up. Nothing.

When all is said and done I can be assured of one thing…the people in Wisconsin are pretty fuckin’ cool.
