Never underestimate the power of Kool Aid. Besides laws don't apply to Democrats they only apply to guys like Schock. If laws applied to Democrats Al Sharpton would be in jail.

Of course the Hillary broke federal law, she has to hide what she does and what she did. She is as corrupt as Obama and certainly as non-transparent as Obama. Neither want the American people to know what they're up to, all which is a detriment to America. How anyone could support this corrupt woman for president is beyond me.

Just because something is making money doesn't mean it's the smartest place to have your money. It's called opportunity cost. Duryea may have other opportunities where the same amount of resources will bring higher reward.

Illinois is an at-will employment state. Workers have no obligation to give 2 weeks notice, and neither do employers. Is it being considerate to give notice? Yes. Proper, maybe. With that said, it's not always possible to warn employees that the end is near. Sometimes negotiations to keep the doors open are down to the wire, and letting the information out to the public might queer the deal.

Eggs supply strong for Easter, Passover

10 months, 3 weeks ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

Although retail egg prices are historically high at $1.98 per dozen, consumers will find an adequate supply of the protein powerhouses to fill Easter baskets and for Passover meals, according to John Anderson, deputy chief economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation.

"Eggs remain a relatively low-cost source of protein at a time when other meat and dairy product prices are also up," Anderson said.

Recently, global demand for eggs has been very strong. In 2013, U.S. egg exports were up by 39 percent compared to the prior year. Much of the increase was due to an increase in exports to Mexico, which in addition to having strong consumer demand, has also had its domestic egg supply reduced by an avian influenza outbreak that began in early 2012.

"U.S. poultry farmers are working to catch up with the surge in demand. U.S. table egg production has increased in each of the past three years and is expected to increase by another 1.5 percent again this year. Demand remains strong, but exports to Mexico will begin to taper off as that country rebuilds its domestic poultry industry," Anderson concluded.

Top egg-producing states include Iowa, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, Indiana, Texas, Arkansas, California, North Carolina and Alabama.

AFBF tracks the average retail cost of 16 food items that can be used to prepare one or more meals through its Semi-Annual Marketbasket Survey.
