Did you hear about the uprising?

Not the one in Tunisia, or Egypt.

No not the one in Libya, though what has been happening there is certainly riveting. Thousands of protesters took to the streets in several cities, defying the forty-year rule of Muammar el-Qaddafi under threat of death.

Not the similar one in Bahrain, where several died and many more were injured.

Not the similar one in Yemen, which has been going on for more than seven days.

Not the really interesting one in Iran, which has been a long time coming, and which prompted the ruling elite to call for the immediate murder of anyone and everyone who is not down with the sickness.

Not the one in Iraq, which involved a demand from the city of Baghdad for one billion dollars from the United States of America, to pay for the damage done to the city from the war.

No, not there. It looks like this, there:

“A fog of smoke, tear gas and fresh unease descended over cities throughout the region, with demonstrations and rolling street battles lurching in violent new directions as governments fought to blunt their momentum and reassert control of the streets. States imposed curfews and ordered people to stay home, and those who defied the orders risked gunfire or beatings at the hands of security forces, private guards or pro-government crowds.”

Not there.

Here.

In America.

In the great state of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin, of all places, where the Governor has threatened to turn loose National Guard troops and State Police officers on tens of thousands of peaceful protesters who have assembled to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
