The Uptake-org reports that “protesters remain inside Wisconsin’s State Capitol building tonight. They may be getting what they want. In this video the crowd erupts when told of a rumor that Republican Senator Dale Schulz has decided to vote against a bill to strip public employees of most of their collective bargaining rights.”

I can’t show you the video because it starts with an ad, ends with an ad, is plastered over with ads, and you can’t see or hear anything on it. I can’t link to the uptake because their web site is currently so badly behaved it may crash your browser and I don’t want to do that to you. But if you open a browser you don’t mind crashing and type in “theuptake dog org” you can look around for the story.

    After a bit of start-and-stop, I was able to view the video. Wasn’t worth the effort.

    “I can’t show you the video because it starts with an ad, ends with an ad, is plastered over with ads, and you can’t see or hear anything on it.”

    It sounds like some of those X@&$ private, advertisement-financed TV channels we have got in Sweden, in parallel to the public TV channels. Interruption, interruption, nothing important, then more interruptions.
