$5 Friday: Safeguard the Guard

I know it’s not still Friday. In fact, it’s Monday. I admit that. But Thursday night they funded a war escalation, and Friday was devoted to unsuccessful efforts to point that out to people. The weekend was needed for reviewing what we should have done differently and should next time. So, here it is Monday, and the only logical thing to do is to turn to states, and away from Washington.

Safeguard the Guard is a Wisconsin campaign to enact legal safeguards to protect the members of the Wisconsin National Guard from unlawful deployments. Our efforts are part of the national “Bring the Guard Home” campaign, now active in more than 20 states.
