    Treating other peoples belongings with respect should not be dependent on politics, but moreover on upbringing, or lack thereof.

    Wisconsin's State Capital building belongs to all of us.
    It should be respected accordingly.

    Anything else, or the acceptance of this poor behavior is disgraceful.

    Oh, and just to show that I can cut and paste too, here's a cozy little pic or huntingman and RK!
    Little Rog, that would be Corian. And when the WI Capitol building was built I would imagine that the Gov was not born yet and had no say in the building materials used I guess you and the other libs would propose he tear down that extravagant marble and put in a portable building with linoleum? Something that meets your liberal standards of fiscal restraint?

    PS...The pic is what we will all look like when Obama is done with us. tax and spend regards...

    Anyone who destroys property other than their own and thinks it is funny is in my book trash. Anyone who thinks it is funny when another destroys property that doesn't belong to them is in my book garbage.

    I try never to callany particular person derogatory names but IF THE SHOE FITS!

    Yeah many of us do, it's lot easier to clean up when guests act like slobs and intentionally trash my place.

    While he's at it, why doesn't Walker teach a little lesson in personal responsibility as well, and take the additional monies needed for clean up/repairs out of the budgets of the those who camped/demonstrated? Or if that's too cruel because he's already cut funding, maybe the organizing groups ought to do some community service like road cleanup for restitution? Maybe then the brats could take a lesson from those who are responsible with our property/possessions.

    Madison - State officials said Thursday that damage to the marble inside and out the State Capitol would cost an estimated $7.5 million.

    Cari Anne Renlund, chief legal counsel for the state Department of Administration, said in Dane County court that estimates of damage to marble includes $6 million to repair damaged marble inside the Capitol, $1 million for damage outside and $500,000 for costs to supervise the damage.

    Much of the damage apparently has come from tape used to put up signs and placards at the Capitol.

    It was not immediately clear how the estimates were made, though the state is apparently relying on opinions by historical architects, one of whom works for the U.S. Park Service.

    One concern is the residue from tape that the state says is causing damage to stone and other surfaces inside the Capitol.

    Michele Curran, an architectural historian for the National Parks Service who coordinates national historic landmarks in Wisconsin, said she didnít know how the state had arrived at its damage figures.

    She said certain kinds of tape can leave lasting residues on surfaces such as marble or wood if they are improperly removed. But she said only a professional cleaning service experienced in such work and familiar with the situation in the state Capitol could estimate any possible costs.

    ďThey need a quote from a company that specializes in cleaning historic surfaces,Ē Curran said.

    Many of the papers and banners posted in the state Capitol were put up using painterís tape, which is employed to minimize effects on walls.

    How do you do $7.5 mil. worth of damage to marble by tape? What did they remove the tape with, a hammer? What a joke! No wonder WI is in financial trouble if they are willing to pay that much to have tape residue removed. The residue hasnít been there very long, so it couldnít have had time to seep into the marble. All it would take is some mineral spirits to remove the residue and some stone soap to wash it down, and the job would be done. Iím willing to come there and clean the marble, and only charge half that. Maybe I should contact Walker. Heís looking for ways to reduce expenses. Iím his man!

    Do you really think the importance is the amount of damage that was caused or the fact that some trash out of pure stupidity damaged proper that didn't belong to them and didn't care?
    A friend of mine has a term for that OPM that is other people's money.

    BS is right. If after all that, the worst thing they can find is tape residue......

    Hell, if that is 7.5 million, I'd hate to tally up how much my kids have done with markers and glue in our old house!! Maybe a billion?

    LMAO at this RWE BS!!
