Gov. Walker’s new policy to restrict access to the capitol building (and all other state buildings) was enacted today. The policy was announced this afternoon and went into effect immediately. Groups of 4 or more will now be required to obtain a permit at least 72 hours in advance in order to enter the capitol. Additionally, permits will be required for groups of 100 or more outside of the capitol.
You can read the whole policy here. I think my favorite line is: “spontaneous events may occur in public areas only.”
Facing a recall? Solution: Take a giant, steaming shit on the people’s right to assemble. The First Amendment is a biggie; even I’m surprised that he would mess with that. May as well go all the Scotty, freedom of speech, religion, and press go hand in hand with assemblage.
