Right, if anyone read the report instead of getting the network tweets, they would not think "investigation blows up in Republicans’ faces as their own conspiracy theories are debunked". Actually those theories were confirmed, not pursued, or cleverly danced around. That tweet theme was the coordinated timely message from the networks, so the talking point people are satisfied, and smugly…

Nicely done, whhm... I got a good laugh out of this! :-) I'm guessing that the guy must have pumped exactly $10 worth, intending to pay with cash... but then he must've gotten distracted by his kids or something, and absent-mindedly drove away without paying. (A few years back, I got a call from a local gas-station regarding a similar incident; a buddy of mine was staying at my place,…

The only ridiculous drivel I've read here is you trying to justify this action by saying that both Republican and Democratic Presidents have acted unlawfully in the past. Please cite an example of a previous executive order that decreed ignoring laws on the books. Also do you really think Strawman can "incite discontent and perhaps violence"? After reading this opinion the thought of going home…
GuyFawkes10 - Quincy Regional Airport makes another late season push for 10,000 departures - Quincy, IL News - Qui
The ground shuttle would only kick in when needed at end of year and would not cost much for a few weeks. Maybe there are rules but wouldn't city employees with business in StL be counted as enplanements? I also think this is a wasteful gov subsidy but at same time the benefit is there and to let it slip away for want of 200 enplanments would almost be derelict in duty of city fathers. What if…

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

2 years, 1 month 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.”
