Monologues of Dissent is one of Circle of Moms' Top 25 Political Mom Blogs two years running! Thanks to all the fans who voted for MoD!
MoD was also featured as a July 2011 Protest Page of the Day at Defend Wisconsin News Round Up. This is a great page for keeping up with all Wisconsin protest news - you can follow on facebook here, and I highly recommend that you do, if you like knowing what's going on around here, as I believe you do.
Video from the Sept. 26, 2011 NBC Education Nation "State of Education" event featuring a panel of governors, including Scott "Teachers Are Thugs" Walker. Brian Williams kicks off the session by reading to Walker from the open letter I sent to them, which Williams had read, but Walker seems to have accidentally deleted from his email. Watching the governor squirm through this segment is the highest honor I have received to date.
