If you haven't been paying attention to what's going on in Wisconsin, let me summarize the situation in a totally objective (read: not objective) way. Governor Scott Walker turned to the state's teachers and some other public workers and said, "We need to save money, so you have to take pay cuts and benefit cuts and pension cuts and we're also taking away your collective bargaining rights." And then the unions were like, "We'll take the pay cuts, and the higher out-of-pocket health insurance costs, and the pension cuts, and every financial concession you asked for, but we're keeping our collective bargaining rights." And then the politicians were all like, "You people are so unreasonable. Why won't you compromise and give us every single thing that we asked for?" And scene.
Anyhoo, here are 23 more geeky protest signs:
