Dissent is Catching

The great Shep Fairey
A couple of days ago the Siren wrote about the Madison County Supervisor who brought her two sons to the Capitol. Her sons held a "Solidarity Forever" poster outside the "free speech zone" and were asked to either go to the designated area or face a citation. They chose the citation...perhaps the friendliest ever recorded by very reluctant and embarrassed police officers.

Well when you start down the path of stealing freedom from fresh faced kids, people tend to take it personal. Sure enough each day a few more people have tempted the regime's policy and dared the police to ticket them.

Then someone made T-Shirts. Now the dissent is in full tilt. This is also what democracy looks like.
