It might be quite innocent... it might be something else

Turn the wifi off to save some cash or what have you

26. Interesting. Scary too, of course.
If the earlier report about the riot cops was true (i.e. that they refused to go in), then maybe somebody issued some threats.

12. There have been many sites blocked throughout the day
The TAA's organizing site, http://www.defendwisconsin.org / , has been one of them. There are some people onsite trying to get around it. Earlier, there was discussion about whether wifi was actually being jammed. I think there is a certain amount of access, however, or at least there was about 1/2 hour ago.

The live feed still shows the rotunda full of lively people, though I suspect they will be resting sooner or later (I think they have to shut the mics down after midnight). I read that firefighters from Manitowoc are among those staying the night tonight, so everybody is safe. :)

The testimony and the hearing continue...(which is how they've been keeping the building open, btw).

is not true. Keep my eyes on twitter... at this point. I hope the governor is not about to go there.

23. Do you mean the unionized riot cops?
:rofl:

I don't doubt that the State Patrol would follow their orders, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a stalling tactic on their part if that happens. Would be a great time for a Work To Rule action.

20. Defend Wisconsin was attempting to set up mirrors last I heard.
The Daily Page blog is still going and I have seen no mention of Wifi issues.

There's no reason to but his reference to safety of the elected members and their families and how he's going to approach worries me a bit.

The capital closes at 11:00 like always... everybody is warm and fuzzy...


including the seven dwarfs... seriously.

The seven dwarfs are walking around the square singing "Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go." Docs carrying a sign that says, "Don't compromise patient care." Sleepy's sign says, "Did I sleep during the negotiations or weren't there any?" Happy's sign says, "We love children." Sneezy's, "This bill stinks" and Grumpy's, "This doesn't make me very happy." Bashful's sign says, "I'm ashamed of the GOP." Finally, Dopey was trailing far behind with a sign that said "I agree with the bill 100% even though I didn't read the whole thing
