...income tax. They tried the ol' fer shame, fer shame, fer shame! routine. No one wanted to focus on the fact that the Legislature was trying to override the 85% of people who didn't want the damn thing.

Representatives should have a healthy fear of their constituents, especially if they're trying to rush something through that the people don't want. And it will only embolden the protesters when Obama sends out the Purple Shirts to try and lay out some beat downs.
And, this time, since the State Media will choose not to cover it, the revolution really will not be televised.
