Madison Protests 3-5-11 - Photos

Photos from todays protests, click any for larger.

Scott Walker's flaming bag of shit. See the flame on top?

The Teamsters have had two semis parked at the protests for a while now.

I went around to the back and the semi was empty, save for a few teamsters getting out of the wind and a small pile of t-shirts.

Walker's yellow brick road leads to the wicked rich. Stupid concept, but graphically a nice sign to my untrained eye - at least it stuck out from the majority of the magic marker and posterboard signs.

Johnny Cash is giving YOU the finger.

A table of socialist/communist literature.

My heart really sank when I saw this scene develop. This mom is making her kid shuffle around the square, and I could tell from the little girls face that she wanted to be anywhere but here. Maybe building a snow fort, or coloring, anything. She looked so completely sad that it affected me for a few minutes.

Scotty tired of doing your wife so now your (sic) gonna screw us.

Best. Sign. Ever.

This dog was NOT having a good time and REALLY wanted to be elsewhere.

This guy was dragging that cross all around the square and handing out literature to passers by.

Fox News makes you stupid!

There were a LOT of fist posters in different forms. More than last week by a mile.

Walkers Murdering Democracy

Chicago's Finest in the house, or at least a dude who owned a CPD jacket.

After walking on the same street with that communist operative vermin and their literature did you take a shower when you arrived home?

Did you disinfect your shoes?

When I was inside the capitol the last few times I was very careful not to touch anyone or anything for fear of lice or bedbugs. Of course I can't get into the capitol now because the peaceful protesters have destroyed it for everyone. Pigs.
