"Where's the transparency?"

Isn't transparency supposed to be invisible?

Obviously! The guy with the sign can't find it.

Sign # 3 makes a lot of sense.

Next time, if that one's followed, we might not have to pass a bill to see what's in it.

There is something under the thing that should be transparent. That's what we want to see.

It's the government exercising power.

It seems that in asking the question "Isn't transparency supposed to be invisible?" you've lost track even of the thing you should want to see.

And that makes those who were hiding very comfortable, thank you.

The only transparency in the Obama White House is the plastic wrap used in their kitchen.

Wonder if the "Where is the transparency?" sign questioning Obama or Walker.

I think he just wanted Dana Loesch to wear something sheer.

"Transparency" was used and abused in the 2008 campaign by Obama. Overused, then disrespected and ignored in his 1st, and I am hopeful, only term in office. Beat him like a rented car!

That is so cool the way the snake flag is transparent. Always a yellow background but here a white background and the American flag behind it is showing through. Now that's transparency.

The administration is transparent, don't you think? You guys claim to see right through at every turn and I must admit you are much more perceptive than I am but in any case there seems nothing opaque between us. With you here to explain things its as if we're invited right in.

Even though I am on the opposite side of these protesters, I laughed out loud at this sign:

Recall Scott Walker?

Falk no!

I can't Barrett.

Teh Won's 'claim' was the he would have the most transparent administration, apparently in contrast to his predecessor.

I maintain that he has achieved that.

Transparency means that one can see what its government does, and I think that its pretty clear what this regime is attempting to do.

Remember people, it is ACTIONS, not WORDS, that define, ultimately. The current crop of regime members is unafraid of deception. The deception is designed to direct your attention away from their actions.

Question; who would you trust to watch your wallet/purse for an hour - a tea party member, or one of the OWS/ whining union types???

No contest.

Obviously you've never been to France.



Transparent-(of an organization or its activities) open to public scrutiny.
Like Clintons "Most ethical administration evah!!!"
Irony. It isn't just for hipsters.

"No law should have more words than the U.S. Constitution"

Beyond stupid.

Looks like a healthy percentage of the protesters are Social Security/Medicare recipients.

They are upset at the thought of other people wanting to be on the dole.

Agreed. But by that logic, we get to strike down the Patriot Act and Act 10.
