ACLU is suing to remove Cross in the Mojave Desert

After WWI many U.S. soldiers moved to the Californian desert to find physical and emotional healing. In 1934, they erected a memorial to honor their fallen comrades, a single white cross, – a symbol used around the world to memorialize those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

The site for the memorial was chosen because at a certain time of day, the sun casts a shadow on the rock which resembles a WWI doughboy. For more than 75 years, the memorial has stood as a reminder that there were those who fought and died for our freedoms.

 But sadly today, the ACLU and a federal judge in California want to tear it down. In fact, the judge has ordered the memorial covered from view while the case is on appeal.

 Please join us in saying “don’t tear me down.”

 We think Americans should honor their war heroes and the freedoms they so valiantly protect; and we’re taking our case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court this fall. Please join us in this battle.

Justin Barrett sues mayor and commissioner of Boston

Justin Barrett is a Boston Police Officer who used a racial slur to describe the Harvard professor Mr. Henry Gates Jr.  The police say he used the racial slur in an email referring to the arrest of Mr. Gates.  In his federal suit against Boston and the mayor, Mr Barrett is claiming his civil rights have been violated.

Officer Justin Barrett said in the suit filed Monday that Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and Police Commissioner Edward Davis acted as “prosecutor, judge, jury” by saying that Barrett faces termination. The police department and city are also named as defendants.

I don’t believe Mr Barrett has a leg to stand on!  There is no room for bigotry in any department of authority.  I am sure the police department and the laws of Massachusetts agree with me.  Mr Barrett was in the position to act responsible and he choose not too!  Now you have to pay the price of your racist words and inflamatory behavior Mr Barrett!  We cannot tolerate such behavior from a person with any power!

Rock Island County Health Department in Illinos and Scott County Health Department in Iowa investigated the outbreak and held a vaccine clinic at the Rock Island High School and drew more then 4400 people Monday and Tuesday.

Two lawsuits have been filed. One from a family claiming their son was hospitalized for four days after eating at the Milan McDonald’s in Northwestern Illinois.   The other lawsuit from a man who got preventive shots after eating at the same restaurant.

Seattle attorney Bill Marler represents the plaintiffs in both lawsuits and is seeking a class action status in the case.
