On Oct. 28 of last year, more than 200 people testified against the maps the Legislature was proposing. Only legislators favored the maps their party leaders wanted to pass. They said the maps had been drawn to protect incumbents–as if holding office should be a lifelong, unchallenged position.

Most of us in Wisconsin understand the deep desire for freedom, independence, and democracy on display by the people of Ukraine as they bravely battle against the horrific and deadly invasion by Russia’s military forces. It is also incomprehensible to us to hear that this invasion and the ac…

To the clergy, being the predominant speakers of the Word, why don’t you, instead of huddling around little coffee tables talking, get off your dead-ends and onto your dying feet and SHOUT? Tell the public about the Antichrist happenings that are going on in Washington. So, a bunch of politi…
