Were you there after Katrina or some other hurricane? That was a rather unique situation, and many of those billions got poured into the wrong pockets. (and any comparison to the war and famine of Somalia is absurd) That is the problem with throwing ever more billions into education or welfare or any top down political solution. There are always many lined up for political payback, and another…

Just because it's going to be hard to get done doesn't mean it shouldn't be attempted. Anything worth doing is going to be hard. The politicians need to stop worrying about their political futures and concentrate on doing what's right for Illinois and its citizens. Illinois politicians need to take care of the tax payers and quit kowtowing to government sector unions.
pjohnf - Quinn, Rauner use jobs claims as campaign weapons - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Governments or Governors don't create jobs, they can only create an atmosphere for private sector job growth. That means a low tax rate for businesses and less onerous regulations for businesses. The one good thing I saw was a decline in government jobs which is good thing. The unemployment rate is a bogus number as it doesn't truly reflect how many people are really working. What we need…

thanks for the link Not sure why it doesn't come right up with Google. I have to put "qteaparty.com " in for Google to bring it up. Just Qteaparty works for Bing, or even "quincy tea party". Anyway, maybe everyone here can do the search on Google, so the name will start coming up more easily on Google. I'll make it to a meeting one day ... looks like you've had good speakers, but…

If you really think about it, the government must want it this way, otherwise, they would try to change it. Anyway, if you read the comment section of eaglebeaky's post, and mine, you'll see there is much disagreement on how the numbers and stats are figured.

Concealed carry of weapons on private property currently not allowed without permission

From myfoxchicago.com:

As Illinois gets ready to enact its new concealed carry law, Sen. Don Harmon of the 39th district is proposing that signs be put up that say businesses do allow guns inside.

Illinois Senate Bill 2669 is sponsored by the Democratic senator from Oak Park. Harmon said the legislation would amend the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, which currently states a person is not allowed to carry a concealed weapon onto private property without permission from the property owner.

The proposal would allow business owners to post clear signs at building entrances and other places on the premises indicating they do allow concealed firearms.

Nicole, a local representative of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said she supports State Sen. Harmon's proposal.

She has found that in her neighborhood, some business owners that do not want guns in their stores are hesitant to post signs indicating firearms are not welcome. Nicole said the Illinois chapter of her organization believes they should have a right to choose, and that they should not feel showing their desire would be detrimental to business.

Nicole said she sees signs indicating gun-free zones are currently posted at her child's pre-school, and finds them to be a frightening reminder of the tragic mass-shooting of young children in Newtown, Conn. in 2012.

She told FOX 32 news that Senate Bill 2669 would render gun-free zone signs redundant and unnecessary at places like her child's school. She also said local businesses would benefit from posting positive signs as opposed to negative ones.
