What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

This goes well beyond the "hanging chad" debacle, this is a deliberate effort to weight the results in favor of the Democrats. The size of the target on a touchscreen is easily manipulated so that if the D spot is half or most of the screen and the R spot is a tiny area of the actual "sweet spot", the results are controlled by the administrator and not the voter-------who just "happens" to be…

If there was a chance in Hell your Third-Party candidate might actually win, I'd be right there with you, but you have to face the fact there ISN"T. Why is it that the typical Third Party frontrunner, usually Libertarian, shares many ideals with the Republican Party, siphons votes away from the Republicans and even receives support from the DNC and Unions to do so? The folly in…
qfingers - Business owners split over minimum wage votes - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Jarosch above inadvertently elucidated the reason why minimum wage is BAD. He says people would leave his store to work somewhere with higher wage....but when everybody pays minimum wage there are no other high-paying jobs. If you get rid of minimum wage businesses would pay what people are willing to work for and wages would vary...some up...some down...and overall employment would increase.

New restaurant to go in at Quincy Regional Airport

7 months ago by Bob Gough

City will give free rent for six months and then re-evaluate lease

The Quincy City Council approved a lease for another attempt at a restaurant at Quincy Regional Airport.

On Monday night, aldermen approved the leas with Pamela Root and she says she plans to open a restaurant called “Mane Runway” sometime in May.

The previous restaurant, The Runway, has been closed for more than three years.

According to the lease, Root will not have to pay rent for the first six months, but will pay utilities. If the restaurant begins to show a profit after six months, it will have to pay the City a commission based on a sliding scale from 1.5 percent to 10 percent.

Root has agreed to allow Airport Manager Jarred Hester review the businesses financial statements to determine future payments.

Mayor Kyle Moore said it was important to have a restaurant there for passengers of Cape Air and other people who utilize Quincy Regional.

Aldermen also approved an ordinance to allow digital signs in residential areas under certain conditions.

The signs are primarily for non-profit and public use facilities and will still be regulated by the City Council and the Plan Commisison.
