To the editor, I have been talking with state legislators about an issue near and dear to my heart — the Deployed Parents Custody and Visitation Act. This law, if enacted, would conform Wisconsin law to the Uniform Law Commission model as it relates to placement of children when a parent or guardian is called to active military duty. Specifically, the law would allow a court to grant caretaking authority to a non-parent, such as a stepparent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle or cousin if the court determines that is in the best interest of the child.
To the editor, The Brett Kavanaugh firestorm isn’t about the extracurricular activities of a 17-year-old. It’s about destroying an innocent man and his family out of frustration by the left because they can’t get their own way by bullying, coercing and making victims out of anyone willing to play the part. It’s also about hatred for President Donald Trump, his supporters and anyone who won’t conform to their insane behavior —including moderate Democrats.
To the editor, Democrats’ treatment of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, is disgraceful. Democrats refused to allow her to remain anonymous because they wanted a show trial.
To the editor, The politics of ignorance, hate and lack of respect are everywhere. Christine Blasey Ford has received death threats after her statement that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her years ago. She and her family have had to move to different locations because of the threats.
To the editor, What a path our state has taken since 2010. With Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle in 2010 we had 9.3 percent unemployment, falling wages, businesses closing, gross domestic product falling, consumer confidence index below 60, home foreclosures, $1.3 billion taken from the transportation fund for general state operations, increasing taxes and our state was still mired with a budget deficit of $5.4 billion.
