Alright, let’s see what we have today. First up, Hero registration cards!
Seattle had an opt-out program for phone books, which was just declared unconstitutional. The courts say phone books are protected speech. I have to disagree, but we’ll see how this progresses.
A new CD comes with a cardboard turntable! Pretty cool!
Courts have also overturned a ruling, now saying that cities can place restrictions in place barring protests (think Westboro). As strange as it is, it’s probably better if cities cannot stop that kind of speech. But then again, when they protest, they always take the risk of being taken to task. And while that is what they want (they then sue to raise money), it is great to watch this takedown as Westboro protests a funeral of a solider (only because she was a lesbian).
A law that has lost in federal courts five times, which the majority of the country opposes, and Speaker Boener had to request a special amount of 1.5 million to defend is a giant waste of time. Now that he’s run out of money, he wants more, even after a year and a half of defeats. Colossal waste of money and time.
Italy is now charging property tax on its churches, as a way to raise money. Seems like a good plan, hopefully it helps them.
That’s it for now, have a great one!
