I really must protest your allegation of "fudging numbers". What is being fudged is how red or blue is determined, and who in fact runs the particular state. Here is another link; http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/09/the_myth_o...

Thanks for the explanation, CoolEdge. I'm not sure how any primary voter's intent (regarding who they might plan on voting for in the general election) could be verified... but your points are well taken. Especially as it relates to the pork-barrel spending.

Thanks, BG. I figured from the video that the security guy was probably completely full of it, from his ridiculous "I'm not dealin with it today!" remark. I would be interested to see if he is disciplined (or charged with anything) for his behavior.... but that will never happen.

the fliers said the tea party guy was trying to keep black people from voting. The other problem is they showed 1000's had already voted in the other primary so were no eligible. And the law says they have to intend to vote for that candidate in the general, not just cross over to elect the weaker candidate. Cochran is a big porker, bringing back like three times what MS pays in. Certainly…

I bet Quinn learned this from Dick Durbin - another INTIMIDATOR.

Eggs supply strong for Easter, Passover

3 months, 2 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.

@eyokley If Hillary doesn't run, there's a huge void and Nixon will have appeal. If she does, he has to be on the VP short list. #AmIWrong
