You must be his brother or brother-in-law. No one else feels this way about about Mr. "Hot-Head".

He is a "Hot-Head" that can't control his personal feelings. He was kicked out of several ball games for threatening the officials. Not what I want in government. That is why he hasn't been elected up to now.

Obama's EPA wants to kill 300K to support a hoax and to schmooze the left's environmental wacko supporters.

pjohnf - How to Raise the Minimum Wage without Legislation - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
The free market should determine wages not politicians who have no vested interest except to buy votes and power. Arbitrarily raising wages without a subsequent increase productivity or employee value to the employer doesn't work. Companies don't start businesses to give people jobs they start businesses to make a profit. The free market should determine wages not corrupt politicians.

Illinois organic farm sales more than triple

11 months, 1 week ago wrex.com

Number of organic farms dropped over the same time period

From wrex.com:

Statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show sales from organic farms in Illinois more than tripled over a five-year period.

Annual sales from organic Illinois farms rose to $26,2 million in 2012, up from just $8.3 million in 2007. The data shows sales growth occurred despite a drop in the overall number of farms in Illinois during that same period. The figures only include farms that had at least $5,000 in annual sales selling USDA-certified organic products.

Kendra Schilling, manager of the Illinois Products Farmers' Market at the state fairgrounds, said the data doesn't include numbers from smaller growers who haven't gone through the process to be certified.

The state's overall crop sales were $14.1 billion in 2012. Livestock sales hit about $3 billion that year.
