The Day Before…

It is presumed that tomorrow is the day that Walker’s Anti-Free Speech policy will go into effect. I was at the Capitol today and here is a short video of the Solidarity Sing Along including a People’s Mic call to come to the Capitol tomorrow:

Here are some photos:

A group called the Wisconsin Family Council has displayed a Nativity scene in the Capitol:

Then the Freedom From Religion Foundation put up this display:

Oh and here is Wisconsin’s High Speed Rail circling under the tree:

Will have more tomorrow…

PS…Forgot to mention this:

In just one month, in just 30 days, in less than half the time granted, your strength and determination has helped us collect more than 507,000 signatures to recall Scott Walker and we are well on our way to beating our internal goal of collecting more than 720,000.

    Wow, what a great display from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Spot on.
    And love the High Speed Rail. Even my conservative dad was a supporter of rail — it could’ve been because his grandfather, whom he was very close to, was an engineer, or maybe it was because he saw high speed rail close up when he spent time in Japan while in the military — but it was one of the few public policy things we agreed on.

    What’s with the creepy family photo of random people on the “American Family Council” sign?
    And I happen to love nativity scenes, but that one is ugly as fuck.

    I love it!
    Are Christians no longer taught their history? I was brought up Presbyterian and learned in Sunday school that the celebration of Christmas was at this time because the pagans were celebrating Saturnalia then, rather like the Jewish man whom I heard in 1962 answer when questioned about the decorated tree in his house, “It’s a Hanukkah bush. There is no reason my children should have less fun.”
    The yule log and evergreen symbols of life are pagan. Face it: cultures in the north celebrated the days getting longer!
    Those who object to FFRF are either ignorant of the history of Christianity or choose to ignore little incidents such as witch burnings, the Inquisition, John Calvin’s having Michael Servetus killed, and Martin Luther’s “The Jews and their Lies.”
    But then, Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Matthew 10:34.
