I am not blaming anyone - I do my own taxes and I am lazy. What does "illegally defrauding Illinois" mean if it is not an accusation that one didn't pay their taxes??

10-23-14 "Amazon posted its third quarter earnings results today and they were not pretty: the company said it had a operating loss of $544 million, more than twenty times what was lost for the same period in 2013. Its revenues grew to $20.84 billion, an increase of 20 percent over the same period last year, but less than what investors were expecting. In its projections for next quarter, Amazon said…

If you actually did pay the use tax on line 23 you are exceptionally unusual and I never accused you of not paying your use tax. As far as over paying your use tax, that is no ones fault but your own (don't blame your accountant or tax preparer you are responsible for everything that goes on your tax return). Line 23 can be used to report ACTUAL use tax owed or you can use the USE TAX TABLE…

I am as cynical as they come - even I wouldn't believe the smoke bomb theory - Rosie O'Donnell probably would.

Or the voters might allow the school district to take care of that on Tuesday. And, no, I don't believe anyone with the School District shoved smoke bombs in the vents...although I'm guessing some of the grassy knollers thought that when they read the story. BG

U.S. Senator from Illinois Mark Kirk tours Blessing Hospital's stroke unit

6 months, 2 weeks ago by Denise Donley

Kirk suffered a stroke in 2012

U.S. Senator from Illinois Mark Kirk toured the Blessing Hospital Stroke unit Monday, shedding light on how important urgent care is regarding strokes.

Kirk suffered a stroke in January of 2012. Since then, he has learned how to read and walk again with the help of highly trained rehabilitation centers.

“I want to make sure that Quincy residents have outstanding stroke care without having to drive to St. Louis,” said Kirk. “I went through a stroke. I know exactly how critical time is; it’s like the difference between life and death for a lot of people.”

Kirk advised Tri-state residents to not overlook stroke symptoms such as pain in the head or loss of function on one side or the other.

“We talk about the typical farmer attitude. When they have pain, they may say ‘Oh, I’ll just ride this out.’. That’s the wrong move,” said Kirk. “At that point, some critical damage can be done to your brain if you don’t quickly get to Blessing Hospital.”

Learning how to walk and read again was the most difficult for Kirk. He still goes to rehab up to seven hours each week, but he said he doesn’t let the stroke get him down.

“For me, it’s just to serve the people of Illinois,” said Kirk. “Unless you get back in the trenches, you can’t serve them.”
