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.

Originally from Hannibal, Missouri, Tech. Sgt. Joel Wealer is a French hornist with Concert Band, the largest musical ensemble of the U.S. Air Force Band

The U.S. Air Force Band and Honor Guard are proud to represent the Air Force in the 2013 inaugural parade. The 99-piece band and 80-person Honor Guard flight will march along the 1.5-mile route that begins at 4th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue and goes past the White House on January 21st in Washington, D.C

Originally from Hannibal, Mo., Tech. Sgt. Joel Wealer began his Air Force career in 2002. Wealer is a French hornist with Concert Band, the largest musical ensemble of the U.S. Air Force Band. He earned a Bachelor of Music in horn performance from Missouri State and a Master of Music degree in horn performance from the University of Michigan.

The U.S. Air Force Band and Honor Guard are stationed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Washington, D.C. Their presentations instill patriotism, deliver positive messages about the Air Force and America, and demonstrate Air Force excellence to billions of people worldwide.

Since its formation, the Air Force Band has marched in 15 inaugural parades (there was no parade in 1945, and the 1985 parade was canceled due to weather). The band began in 1941 when the newly-formed U.S. Army Air Corps activated 59 bands into operation. It was initially called The Bolling Field “Band” and consisted of five men—a saxophone quartet and a bandleader. Over the next 71 years, the Band expanded its size and mission to include six primary performing ensembles and a global mission. The band’s uplifting programs instill patriotism, deliver positive messages about the Air Force and America, and demonstrate Air Force excellence to billions of listeners on television, radio, Internet and at more than 1,600 live events each year.

The primary mission of the United States Air Force Honor Guard is to render military honors to members of the Air Force, past and present, and their families during funeral services at Arlington National Cemetery. In addition to this distinguished duty, the Honor Guard also conducts military ceremonies at the White House, Pentagon and national memorials representing the Air Force in presidential, joint service, Air Force and public ceremonies. The beginnings of the Honor Guard’s rich history date back to May 1948 when it was originally activated within Bolling Field’s 1100th Security Squadron. It remained primarily a function of that squadron until Jan. 1, 1972, when it became a separate unit.
