Wisconsin’s Carrying Concealed Weapon Law Questions And Answers
(from Wisconsin Dept. of Justice)

There is a zombie party, but it’s not the GOP

Following the early October defenestration of John Boehner as speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Washington Post correspondent Karen Tumulty made waves when she said Republicans were “on the verge of ceasing to function as a national political party.”

But in this case, the wish was likely the father of the thought. “Dysfunction” was hardly the scene in the House last week as Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan took hold of the speaker’s gavel — an act unthinkable even to Ryan just a few weeks prior. The young, attractive Ryan always has been seen as the future of the Republican Party, able to bridge the gap between the GOP’s more ardent wing and those more interested in governing. (In the end, only seven of the Tea Party’s “Freedom Caucus” members voted against Ryan, proving the group’s opposition to Ryan was overblown.)

In fact, Ryan’s ascendance to the speakership itself served as a reminder that the Republican Party is alive and well. In fact, in the House, it is the Democrats who have ceased to function, as Republicans still hold 247 seats — their largest majority since 1927.

UW-Stevens Point chills free speech

It’s hard to believe Wisconsin college students are almost halfway through their first semester. Unfortunately, when the school year started, instead of orientation, our kids got a head full of indoctrination.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point published a list of “Examples of Racial Microaggressions” on its official website. According to UWSP, a microaggression is described as “daily slights visited upon people of color, women, LGBT persons and other historically oppressed communities.” After some unfavorable national media attention this summer, UWSP clarified that the material is used in new faculty seminars and that the university is not banning the words but rather “building awareness” for a safe and inclusive environment on campus. Intentional or not, this list has a chilling effect on speech for new staff and especially young students who are still forming their own beliefs or worry that straying from the school sanctioned list of words and opinions could result in social repercussions or a lower grade in class.

Clinton Cash Book Discussion on Wed Sep 2

Clinton Cash book coverstarting at 5:30pm

Over the course of the past few years, Hillary Clinton has proven that she is untrustworthy. Her favorability ratings continue to shrink across the country, and here in Wisconsin, Democrats have started to support Bernie Sanders as Hillary has failed to excite her own base.

Join us on September 2nd as we discuss one of the many plagues that has slowed down Hillary this summer. In Clinton Cash, author Peter Schweizer digs into donations received by the Clinton foundation by foreign entities. We’ll talk about how we cannot afford to have Hillary Clinton lead our country, and what we can do now to make sure Wisconsin turns red in 2016. We’ll also discuss our next books for September, October, and November, so come prepared with some ideas!

Drinks and light snacks will be provided.

Multitude of local authorities soak Illinois homeowners in taxes

Mary Beth Jachec lives in a three-bedroom house in Wauconda, a village of 14,000 in Illinois, 45 miles northwest of Chicago. Her semi-detached brick home is unassuming. Her tax bills are not.

The 53-year-old insurance manager gets a real estate tax bill for 20 different local government authorities and a total payout of about $7,000 in 2014. They include the Village of Wauconda, the Wauconda Park District, the Township of Wauconda, the Forest Preserve, the Wauconda Area Public Library District, and the Wauconda Fire Protection District.

Then there is Wauconda Road and Bridge, not to be confused with Road and Bridge, Wauconda Gravel, or with Wauconda Special Road Improvement and Gravel unit – all three of which have imposed separate taxes on her and the village’s other homeowners.
