17. Thanks SO MUCH For This & To Others Posting Pictures Too!
You're ALL fantastic for taking the time to share. Down here in Florida we don't see much of this stuff! I heard there was going to be a gathering in Miami, but I'm SURE my local news WILL NOT be showing ANY of it!

I wonder if that was intentional? ;)

28. These are the type/size protests needed against MSM advertisers...
Protesting the MSM directly won't work, they will just continue to blackout the Wisc protests and give the corporate/Republican madeup version of events.

We need to identify the largest advertisers on ABC/NBC/CBS/Fox/CNN etc and bring this type and size protests against them, including a boycott of their products and services, until they pull their ads and financial support for the networks engaging in this kind of conduct.

Until the truth is spread far and wide the MSM will continue to be the most powerful weapon for controlling the people and encouraging them to vote for congressmen and policies that are against their own interests.

30. This tweet you posted reminds me that we are truly who we were waiting for.
"Words can't even begin to describe the mass of humanity out here, it's way bigger than any presidential event I've done." It is now about the working people... Too many times it has been about business.. Or the deficit or taxes, this is now about the working people... much gratitude to the people.....
