9. Solidarity from Wisconsin
One of our First Amendment warriors was removed from the Wisconsin State Assembly Gallery and arrested for "disorderly conduct" (as many have been) for holding a sign that referenced ALEC, and she was holding up several dollar bills. The great thing was that she was pointed out by a republican legislator during the session - "Would someone remove that woman who has the ALEC sign and the money...," which gave the Dems the opportunity to respond that she obviously was there for the republicans.

OK, so we're under such an attack that we have to get our pleasure in simple ways...

Good luck with your action, and thank you for helping to educate about ALEC.

16. Who was the legislator that did that ?
Edited on Thu Nov-24-11 12:50 AM by 999998th word
Hi Lefta,

You're right, simple ways. If it was Vos - he is the ALEC chair for Wi.

I'm hoping-as I start to gather sigs-and watching the ducks fly south, that a duck will 'take aim' on Snottys bald spot SPLAT !. Its such a great target after all. He would wear it well.

21. Watch it here! :)

Ott (R) is the one who asked for ***** to be removed.

Pocan (D) then stood up ONCE AGAIN to try to get the republicans to consider a bill to honor the First Amendment in the Assembly.

Sinicki (D) is the one who clarified that if there's someone from ALEC, they're there for the republicans, not for the Dems.

On that night, there were 18 arrests for people either holding a piece of paper, or having a camera (or facsimile thereof) in the Gallery.

I was told repeatedly to put down my 4" x 6" flag, but was not arrested for it, while people WERE arrested for holding a 3" x 5" card "like a sign."

. FIRST AMENDMENT, USE IT OR LOSE IT

27. This is great! I live in the Phoenix area.
I probably won't get to take off work but I'll be happy to support the effort in any way I can. I just learned about ALEC recently and it makes me burning mad! :mad: Unbelievably undemocratic.

Again, I'm sorry-can't go $$ issues-can't get a lobbyist to pay for it either. :shrug:

I do attempt to explain this to people, w/some success. A question ? How do you explain this to

others without sounding like a CT nut.This whole ALEC thing sounds so ludicrous to the average person,

at times, I feel like they are looking @ me like I have 2 heads. What works for you? :wow:

and thanks for work to educate others. . :applause: :hi:
This crap is frightening.

49. I can make it down there around 11 AM tomorrow. Where
can I meet up with the protest at that time?

I'm not clear on where the protest is actually taking place.
