Protester Nearly Stabbed By DOA Employee in WI Capitol and Revenge of Balloons

After months of mostly peaceful protests this last month or so has seemed to escalate here in Wisconsin. It started with former Republican State Senator David Zien and his band of thugs coming to the Capitol and starting a fight in which the Tea Partiers draped flags over protesters faces and without being struck, put the Pizza Box Guy, Mike Dickman, in a neckhold and punching him several times in the face.

The President Who Isn’t

The President Who Isn’t
