It's Time to Take Out the Trash Day - Mission already accomplished?

In case you have not already heard, some Wisconsin TEA Parties started a Facebook page to create a flash mob that would descend on the Capitol to clean up after the protesters.



The clean up is to start today at 1:00 PM.  However, it appears after the Facebook page went viral, clean up has already begun.
Facebook:**UPDATE**Our event hasn’t even started and the goal is already being achieved. I went to the square with my wife and another friend. My friend tells me the grounds as of 11:00 PM Friday night were effectively trashed; garbage strewn everywhere. Tonight is another story.
I’m pleased to report the protesters were able to make effective use of their manpower. The grounds are mostly respectable. Yes, we did find some trash, but not to the degree that would warrant a battalion wide police call.
The feeder streets to the square are a different story. They were far less kempt. It’s clear the massive influx of people has taken its toll. I will start on East Washington Avenue and work my way around clockwise on the first block of each feeder street leading to the capitol square. 
I am still going.

It's not about partisanship or protests, but pride.

It is time to take out the trash... literally. In true Flash Mob fashion, on Sunday at exactly 1300 hours (1:00 pm for you non-military types) we will do an extensive police call (pick up the trash) around the capitol square. Regardless of the state the grounds are in, we will do this as both a literal and symbolic way to show our respect for our home. 
TEA Partiers know how this is done. It is time to show OUR pride for OUR state OUR way and be the example.
Even if you cannot attend, please share this and invite all of your sane friends who share our love of Wisconsin.

No signs, no screaming, just a necessary cleaning.

I glad to see the Capitol did get cleaned up, whoever did it.  We can all have our free speech without being pigs about it.

Tea partiers cleaning up the mess the trashy lefties leave behind...


There's an allegory in there somewhere...

I was in Denver the week after the convention. The place looked like several garbage trucks dumped their loads on the streets.

I was in DC a week after the inauguration. Although the city logged 100 tons of trash from the events, there were still visible signs of what looked like a frat party gone bad.

My uncle was a sailor, and he used to tell me about how the loudspeakers would blare: "Sweepers, sweepers, man you brooms. Sweep down all lower decks."

I got the idea to start an organization on campu called "The Sweepers" which would pick up all of the leftist fliers strewn about campus and take down their unauthorized or illegal propaganda posters. Even though posting of fliers on city sign posts and telephone poles was illegal, the university administration regarded it nonetheless as free speech. Of course, liberals routinely and without retribution riped down conservative posters legally posted and stole copies of the conservative newspaper to suppress their speech.

Glad to hear you stepped up to the plate. The same nonsense happened at my college back in the day.
