Hmmm....if you've ever had your wife mad at you it more-than-likely was for more than a moment :-) Premeditation to me means doing something else. Like leave the room to do something other than get the gun. And it's not reactive. Some people are slow to boil. Question is...who gets to define that? Does each state define what it means very specifically?

The service was NOT provided through property taxes (which only pay for pensions). Did you do the math on your water bill? People tend to use approximately the same amount of water per person (yes...some more than others).

You can complain about people being ticketed for this, but it is a law that saves lives. If these people that are ticketed start wearing seatbelts, it could save their lives later on in a traffic accident. stop whining and keep wearing your seatbelt.

Bizarre sequence of events in GOP gubernatorial campaign

From from suntimes.com:

In an announcement rocking the Republican gubernatorial primary race, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford contended Friday that his opponent, millionaire businessman Bruce Rauner, paid an attorney who demanded $300,000 from him on behalf of a Rutherford employee making allegations against him.

Rutherford said at a news conference that the allegations are false but declined to describe them. They were made last week by a current employee in the treasurer’s office, Rutherford said.

Rutherford said he has launched an independent investigation into the allegations and accused Rauner of trying to destroy him.

“I’m going to turn this back on him,” Rutherford said. “I find this to be very, very offensive. ... Illinois politics is hardball.”

Rauner’s campaign denies having anything to do with the allegations against Rutherford.

“Treasurer Rutherford should spend his time answering the serious claims made against him by a state employee, rather than trying to distract attention with false claims against us,” Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said.
