Funny, I always hear the global warming nuts claim a hot day is from global warming. Of course, a one degree change over 100 years is not noticeable by anyone. But there may not really be any warming, since the urban heat island effect was not well accounted for. And Al Gore isn't a guy doing, you know, science.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'.

Rauner wins GOP nomination for Illinois governor

Rauner wins GOP nomination for Illinois governor

4 months, 1 week ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:

Wealthy first-time candidate Bruce Rauner scored a narrow win over state Sen. Kirk Dillard for the Republican governor nomination in Tuesday’s primary with Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn now on tap for the fall.

Rauner, a Winnetka venture capitalist, collected 41 percent to 36.5 percent for Dillard with 78 percent of the unofficial vote counted. State Sen. Bill Brady had 15 percent and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford had 7.5 percent.

"Let's bring back Illinois," Rauner told cheering supporters at a downtown hotel.

On the Democratic side, Quinn declared victory after scoring 72 percent with 78 percent of the preincincts counted. Challenger Tio Hardiman, the former leader of the anti-violence group CeaseFire had 28 percent. A vote for the low-profile Hardiman amounted to a protest vote amid concerns from some Democrats about Quinn’s leadership.

The primaries were notable for low turnout despite the high-stakes nature of the GOP contest for governor. Quinn was the only statewide Democratic candidate to have a challenge.

Even before the Republican race was decided, Quinn tried to jumpstart the general election. Believing Rauner to be his opponent, Quinn aired TV commercials during newscasts attacking the Republican over the issue of raising the minimum wage.

Quinn has backed raising the state’s $8.25-an-hour minimum wage to at least $10 an hour. The issue has been a troublesome one for Rauner, who initially advocated “moving back” the state’s minimum wage to the current federal rate of $7.25 an hour.
