Object Triggers on Base Layer

I was using a bad habit I picked up from my old software and creating a ton of triggers on one slide rather than using layers. I thought I would save myself some headache by using layers instead, but now I'm having a hard time getting the layers to actually show (different headache!).

I have a base layer with a few objects that, when clicked, should trigger the appearance of the different layers. This isn't working. The layer visibility is not locked, and the base layer objects are not hidden. 

What am I doing wrong? Any ideas?
