OPM fest tomorrow in Madison

If religion is the opiate of the masses, tax money is the OPM of every liberal special interest group. Tomorrow they're gathering in Madison for a press conference and to beg the state for more of your money. That's right. They love Other People's Money.

"Wisconsin's budget and the state economy in general are in the hole," said {MacIver Institute} President, Brett Healy, earlier this month. "And rule number one regarding holes is: 'When you find yourself in one, the first thing you do is stop digging.'"

But the OPM Fest participants are coming to the Capitol with shovels in hand. They are demanding the digging continue. One would think you would have to be high to ask the hardworking families and job providers of this state for more of their money during this time of economic uncertainty in Wisconsin. Perhaps they are addicted to OPM...

To add insult to injury, many of the OPM Fest revelers' salaries are paid by you.

The MacIver Institute has the list of participating organizations. (Same protestors, different letterhead.) They will also be live-blogging and Twittering tomorrow's festivities.
