WI Capital on Lockdown

As stories fly about windows being welded shut at the capital building (and a credible source for this hasn't been found) one thing that remains and IS verified is the lock down on the capital building for "cleaning purposes". Though, there are tweets from inside the capital saying that they can't see anyone cleaning the capital. Here's the deal. Like it or not, Left or Right, this is in our State Constitution;

Article I, §4 – ANNOT. The legislature cannot prohibit an individual from entering the capitol or its grounds. 59 Atty. Gen. 8. Article I, §4 Right to assemble and petition. Section 4. The right of the people peaceably...... to assemble, to consult for the common good, and to petition the government, or any department thereof, shall never be abridged." 

Walker's actions are illegal, bottom line.

Let freedom ring, I guess. 

Also, because I am tired of hearing that "Union Thugs" are violent at the capital, here's a Press Release from City of Madison Police Officers saying how they are thankful that things continue to remain peaceful at the capital.


  1. Government tyranny is in America, thanks to Scott Walker and the GOP!

  2. Thank you for doing this research. Had some thoughts like this but hadn't had time to look it up.
