Migraine....do you take all the deductions on your income tax returns that you "qualify" for? Im guessing yes, yet you are critical of others for doing the same thing. I don't disagree that maybe something is wrong with the guidelines but it is what it is and that's NOT the school system's fault. And Huggie....how do you know that no one checks what someone puts down? Im guessing…
qcstylee - New Illinois law bans employers from conducting background checks on interviewees - Quincy, IL News
People do change. If you're going to judge someone based on something they did 8 or 10 years, when they have to check the"yes" box to the question of, "Have you EVER been convicted of a felony?" Then I'm glad they're making this a law. I've been denied employment AND publicly humiliated when a potential employer looked through my application several years ago, and in front of everybody…

How stupid can a guy be. He just gets out of jail, and then pulls a dumb move like that. Looks like he's gonna be in and out of jail the rest of his life.

Migraine it's not just morally wrong its embarrassing. I know moms that lie about their income. They stand in line at the sign up table and giggle about it. Then they skip out to there brand new SUV like its no big deal. No one checks to see if what you wrote down is correct. No pay stubs, W-2s or income tax return needed. I don't have a new car and my kids may not be in dance, but at least…
1950Brutus - Strawman: Obama\'s Right--It\'s Time to Fix the Immigration System........ - Quincy, IL News - Quinc
The system needs "fixing", in large part, because our government is not enforcing the laws on the books now. Reform will only help if the powers that be like the new law - which isn't likely since the new laws will probably be tougher than the current ones - the pendulum is swinging back the other direction. "Let everybody in" sounds good on paper but in the real world it won't work. The…

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

1 year, 9 months ago by Bob Gough

Republican State Senate candidate Randy Frese appeared with Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) in Macomb and Galesburg as they discussed 2nd Amendment rights.

"The first bill I will propose as senator representing the 47th senate district will be for conceal and carry," Frese said.  "It’s important to our district for several reasons.  One being is that a great deal of this district is rural.  A call to the sheriff could result in a delay of a reaction if immediate services were needed.  People need to be able to protect themselves, their home, and their property.  Law abiding citizens will follow the gun laws that are set into place.  That’s the bottom line.  Preventing people from concealing and carrying is not only detrimental to their safety and security, but also denying them a fundamental right that has been enacted by 49 other states.”

Frese says he's been hearing from members of the NRA in the 47th District about further proposed anti-gun legislation that is coming from Chicago

“The idea that the Cook County Board President is discussing plans to tax ammunition as a way to prevent people from using guns illegally is not only troubling, but also irresponsible," he said.  "We shouldn’t tax law abiding citizens under some misguided notion that criminals will suddenly stop committing crimes because we’ve written a new law.  This is a bad solution to a problem that predominately applies to Cook County, and we need to elect officials that are able to work independently of the Chicago Machine.” 

 

 

Senator Bill Brady alsoweighed in during the discussion.  “Randy’s ideas and work ethic will make him an important addition to the senate.  He will work hard not only for gun rights, but also on getting the budget under control and bringing jobs to Illinois,especially western Illinois.  I look forward to working with him and am proud to support his campaign for senate.”
