Save our Schools Rally at Austin Underway

Patriots? Hardly

Unless there's been some sort of unforseen delay, the Save our Schools Rally up in the State Capitol should be underway as we speak write. The estimates I've seen were predicting a crowd of up to 10,000 supporters. I don't recall reading of any counter-protests such as the ones bank-rolled by big corporations up in Wisonsin. La Sanbe reported yesterday that the Laredo bus(es) were scheduled to roll out at 0730. I'm hoping that there was more than one bus chartered and filled but I didn't wake up early enough to go take a look-see.

It'll be interesting to see if any astro-turf, counter protests will make their way to Austin. As has been well documented, the millionaire (billionaire?) Koch brothers were 100 per cent behind Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. It's amazing how the tea-party types are so willing to take the side of corporate interests in denouncing unions. They are puppets in the hands of the truly rich, blindling reciting talking points dreamt up by corporate lobbyists who could care less about anybody in the working class, including tea partiers.
