The only people resenting the police are those who are too ignorant to know what the police actually do.

A few years ago, a van was stopped for the "low-hanging fruit" of having the license plate bulb burned out. It was a routine stop that resulted in the seizure of over 500lbs of marijuana. What you deem as "accidental" is not as random as you think. It's a numbers game, and as much as you want to complain about it (a lot, apparently), it's been proven legal at every level of court system…

I'm not sure what your point was in re-posting the blotter, other than you like to see comments with your name at the top. Seat belt enforcement is just picking low-hanging fruit. Violators are usually tame and compliant and usually pay their fines: hence, easy revenue stream for the gubmint. The fact that they accidentally round up a real criminal once in awhile just helps people ignore away…
migraine_in_qcy - Survey says: GREDF, City of Quincy and Adams County get some answers - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJourn
That's all fine and dandy, but what is GREDF doing to try and improve the business climate in Illinois? Is GREDF openly supporting political candidates that are low-tax and pro-business? Is GREDF lobbying or helping fund lobbyists at the state level to promote pro-business laws? It's great to talk about retention, but when Illinois is doing everything it can to stifle business growth, surveys…

STEP is a waste of taxpayer money. We are spending 7 million or so already to catch all the bad guys. The State of Illinois is broke. It is ridiculous to add another layer of law enforcement on top of what we already have. I intend to tell all my reps. to quit wasting my money on more enforcement. Enough is enough. These petty tickets are just sucking money out of the local economy and causing more…

Record $140 billion in exports anticipated for this year

1 year ago from USDA

But big decline projected for next year

While exports are forecast at a record 140-billion dollars for this fiscal year - exports in the next fiscal year are projected to drop five-billion dollars to 135-billion. That's according to USDA's Economic Research Service. The biggest decline is expected in oilseeds and products - down 5.4-billion dollars on lower soybean and meal prices.

Lower wheat, rice and feeds and fodders exports are expected to result in a 1.7-billion dollar drop in grain and feed exports. ERS forecasts a 700-million dollar decline in cotton exports due to lower domestic production and reduced demand from China. Little change is expected in exports of livestock, poultry and dairy products. Horticultural exports are actually to increase 2.5-billion to a record of 34.5-billion dollars. Agricultural imports for the 2014 fiscal year are forecast at a record 113-billion dollars - eight-billion higher than this fiscal year. The trade surplus is expected to fall to 22-billion - a 13-billion dollar drop. According to ERS - 22-billion would mark the smallest surplus since 2007.
