When we went to the Kalahari Water Park in Wisconsin Dells a couple of weeks ago, I was on the lookout for posters about the bargaining rights dispute, the demonstration about which a Friend of McHenry County Blog sent me photos.
I had heard that union members wee going into retail establishments asking permission in a rather heavy-handed approach to put up “We support the union position” posters.
Admittedly, my sample was to small to reach a conclusion that merchants in the Dells wanted no part in the dispute, but my eyes did perk up when I saw the tee shirt below in Buffalo Phil’s:
When I asked what the tee shirt’s message was all about, my hopes of having found something political were dashed.
The teen told me it was a tee shirt to promote a movie entitled, “Down with the Capitol.”
Something about a movie based on a Suzanne Collins’ book entitled, “Hunger Games.”
Below you see the front of the tee shirt, the symbolism of which escapes me
Found a trailer of the movie. Only 1.5 million people have watched it. Good music.
Release date is March 23, 2012.
Maybe Illinois’ Tea Party folks should adopt the tee shirt.
