I'm sure they will. No reason to do a job half assed.
Just because you do it half assed, does not mean everyone is like you.

They prove it time and again.

Did you see the DC mall mess, after Ed Schultz's Union, Communist party, Socialist party and progressive rally, to counter Becks 8/28 miracle.

Disgraceful to the nation.

Republicans, if you want to make a point, fine...but can you please just stop lying? Just because Fox News does it routinely doesn't mean that you have to as well. They were recently rejected from broadcasting in Canada for a reason.

Making stuff up to prove a point only makes you look stupid and even more irrelevant in this current discussion.

These people are the radical leftists of the 60's. Back then they were the "great unwashed".

Now they feel that they have credibility and are flexing their muscle.

They have 1st amendment rights, which I would not ever rant against, but a radical is a radical is a radical.

They leave a swath of trash, graffiti, and filth wherever they go. It's in their DNA.

Here's an estimate of the cost to clean up after the protestors:

"The Wisconsin Department of Administration estimates it could cost the state $8 million to restore the Capitol to its pre-protest condition, Wisconsin media are reporting. The estimate includes $500,000 to remove adhesive from taped posters, $1 million to repair the structure's exterior and $6.5 million for rebuffing the interior marble."

Capitol protesters out, but high clean-up costs remain

It would go a long way if those who caused this damage would clean it up, rather than saddling the taxpayers with this expense. Somehow, I don't think we're going to see that happen. People have the right to protest, as has been said here ad nauseum, but what about this. The taxpayers should have the right to bill the unions and protestors for this cost.

Wisconsin Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch told the court that it would take $500,000 to supervise the removal of the tape, $6 milion to restore the damage to the interior of the building and an additional $1 million to restore damage done from items taped to the exterior.

Wow, and they say Democrats like to inflate the costs of service. And you thought the teachers were draining the taxpayers dry, whoever is doing the bidding there makes the Teachers look like rank amateurs. My opinion of the above Opinion statement by Huebsch is B***S***

They've been on air in Canada since 2004.
