“IMPEACH OBAMA” T-Shirts and Displaying American Flag Deemed Illegal by Town

At issue is the enforcement of the Town of Campbell’s ordinance, 9.12, which prohibits the display of signs and flags on, or within 100 feet, of the only pedestrian overpass managed by the Town of Campbell. The Town enacted the ordinance on October 8, 2013 in response to some angry calls about the “Impeach Obama” expression on the t-shirts and the resulting media attention.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin on behalf of La Crosse residents Gregory Luce and Nicholas Newman against the Town of Campbell, its police chief, and one of his officers. Luce and Newman were participating in a nationwide movement called “Overpasses for America.”

Wisconsin Governor Walker not having any of Obama’s shutdown drama

The state Department of Natural Resources on Wednesday refused a directive from the National Park Service to close a host of popular state properties because of the federal government shutdown.

The park service ordered state officials to close the northern unit of the Kettle Moraine, Devil’s Lake, and Interstate state parks and the state-owned portion of the Horicon Marsh, but state authorities rebuffed the request because the lion’s share of the funding came from state, not federal coffers.

. . . in a sign of defiance, the DNR removed the barricades at the landing, saying it had the legal authority to operate the launch under a 1961 agreement with the federal government.

Editor’s note: There was a time when most Catholics actually understood the nature and purpose of the Mass. There also was a time when more than seventy five percent of Catholics attended Mass every Sunday. Participation today is well under thirty percent – and falling.

Pope Francis labels as heretics those Catholics who hold a more traditional understanding of the faith, yet he is unwilling to make a similar prudential judgment as to the nature of many of his fellow Jesuits, certain radical women’s religious orders, and those who suffer from disordered sexuality.

Modernism, Liberalism, hypocrisy, and arrogant humility apparently go hand in hand.

Scott Walker for President

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s budget surplus grew by $500 million Thursday, leading to a bipartisan call by state lawmakers and Gov. Scott Walker to put some of the money toward public schools two years after funding was cut by more than $1 billion.

Beyond schools, though, lawmakers and Walker disagreed on the best way to use the surplus reported by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau. Republicans said they were committed to cutting taxes, putting money in reserves, and reducing the amount of bonding used for roads projects. Democrats called for investing more in worker training, but didn’t endorse deeper tax cuts.

The numbers put Walker and the Legislature in unfamiliar territory. When the governor took office two years ago, the state was facing a $3.6 billion shortfall.

Embattled Wisconsin parish is a microcosm of Catholic Church at large.

Some area Catholics approved of the message brought by the new priests. Gregory Merrick, 62 years old, began driving the 20 miles to St. Mary’s when he heard the new priests were traditionalist. Catholicism “is first about the good news that we are saved, but that news is hooked irrevocably to the notion that we’re sinners,” he said. “Do we as Catholics want to conform to the church, or do we want the church to conform to us? I suggest the latter of those two possibilities is a disaster”.

Retired teacher Rosemary Anderson, a former St. Mary’s council member, left the church in February. She said the two priests, Father Ruiz and the Rev. John Del Priore, “are very conservative, very much their-way-or-the-highway,” and that she believed their sermons emphasize confession and sin while lacking discussion of charity and embracing others.
