Ahh yes, Civility

I have been informed, gentle readers, that there was a meeting last night in Fountain Park to oppose Governor Walker's bill. The Sheboygan Press article talks about the union people who were there, but they neglected to cover one of the uglier aspects of that meeting.

I have learned, that the people at this rally were being encouraged and instructed on how to incite violence at rallies around the state tomorrow. This is abhorrent.

If the unions think that by bullying the people of WI, they can get what they want, then they had best prepare to be painted as the violent hooligans they are. What part of "There is no more money" don't you understand?

My fellow patriots, be alert, be responsible and above all, do not allow yourselves to be baited into violence. If there is to be violence let it be among those who are promoting it only. Better yet, show your support for the governor and legislature by staying away from these rallies and calling or e-mailing your support to the governor and your legislators.

We are better than that. And if, as I suspect, those advising and pushing violence are out of state agitators, may I ask that those of our fellow citizens who were listening, soundly reject their calls to violence, out of self respect if nothing else. This is Wisconsin, not Egypt. You are citizens before you are union members. A free and independent people should not need to resort to violence to settle our legislative differences.

"The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth." ~ Psalm 11:5
