Being nude in your car isn't illegal*. As long as you had your seat belt on, didn't appear to be intoxicated, and had no other evidence of illegality, they would have waved you on your way. They would have TALKED about you for a very long time, but they wouldn't have stopped you. *There is a bit of a double-standard in this, as women could be cited for public nudity. This is because…

Please, keep posting. You're painting a clearer and clearer picture that shows how very little you actually know about the subject. It's easier for people to know what weight to give your comments when you show how truly ignorant of reality you are.

Do a search and find every single story of a cop convicted of abuse of power, brutality, racism, whatever transgressions you want. Find as many as you can. All of them. Post links if you want. Then take that number and figure it as a percentage of 700,000. As of 2009 (the last year I can relatively quickly put my hands on information), there were just over 706,000 sworn law enforcement officers…

Easier said than done, I think it was the Mises Institute who did a study years back and found the average American breaks the law 3 times a day......in the freest country in the world.

Legal until it's illegal wasn't the ignorant part. Comparing seat belt traffic details to slavery is ignorant. I would expect a rational person to understand that. I guess that's where my expectations missed the mark.

Governors Nixon and Branstad to speak at Tri-State Summit

5 months, 2 weeks ago by 0

Summit is next month on the campus of Hannibal LaGrange University

The Tri-State Development Summit Steering Committee has announced the names of some of the featured speakers and honored guests that will be presenting at the 10th Tri-State Development Summit on May 7th in Hannibal, Missouri.

"Our theme this year is "WATERWaterways, Transportation &Regionalism" and our speakers reflect this," said Steering Committee member Tom Boland of Hannibal, Missouri. "The caliber of individuals and the array of topics they will cover will make for an action-packed session." 

Among those addressing the issue of the importance of our inland waterways system is Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and Iowa Governor Terry Branstad.  Their presence at the Tri-State Development Summit demonstrates their support for the jobs and safety a strong inland waterways system represents. 

"Modernizing and strengthening our nation's inland waterways transportation system, including the lock and dam infrastructure, is critical. It will create American jobs, increase exports and keep our nation competitive in world markets. A reliable inland waterways system is also vital to maintaining a strong national defense infrastructure," said Steering Committee Member Dan Wiedemeier of Burlington, Iowa. 

Shawn Rana, President of the Iowa Fertilizer Company, a subsidiary of Egypt-based Orascom Construction Industries, will offer an inside view of the Iowa Fertilizer Company plant located in Wever, Iowa, including a construction and hiring update. The plant will be one of the top five nitrogen-based fertilizer plants in the world when it begins production in the 4th quarter of 2015. The Wever area was selected because of easy access to plentiful supply of natural gas and water, as well as proximity to river, rail and highway transportation. Distribution of product from the Wever plant will cover five continents. The Lee County plant is one of the largest capital projects in the State of Iowa's history. 

As President and CEO of the International Economic Development Council (IEDC), Jeffrey Finkle is a recognized leader and authority on economic development.  The IEDC is the world's largest economic development membership organization and is renowned for its leadership in professionalizing and diversifying the field of economic development. Mr. Finkle will give a presentation entitled; "The Three R's: Resiliency, Recovery & Regionalism," in a nod to the Tri-State Summit's history of being founded as a result of the Great Flood of 1993. 

The mission of the Tri-State Summit is to bring together leaders in Southeast Iowa, Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois to define common issues; to develop an on-going dialogue to effectively address those issues; and to improve the quality of life of the entire tri-state region through economic development activities. 

The 2014 Summit will take place in the Roland Fine Arts Center which is located on the campus of Hannibal-LaGrange University in Hannibal, Missouri. The location for the bi-annual Summit rotates among all three states. The Summit consists of a four-hour agenda from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Additional speakers and a full agenda will be announced in the weeks leading up to the May 7 event.
