Righty1 - DNC Chair Can\'t Describe difference between Democrat and Socialist - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJourna
There is no difference! They both enjoy taking money from people who work for it and giving it to the leeches. They also have no problem killing the unborn and selling their body parts. They are both selfish and lazy. Neither has any redeeming value in life. In the old days they would have all starved to death do to their failure to plant or harvest food for the winter.

Actually, Hydro, you don't have "every right" to know who the deceased gentleman is (unless you're his next of kin). You merely paid your taxes; that one (insignificant) fact does not give you the "right" to know any darned thing about the man. (Using your logic, the identities and the home addresses of crime victims would be announced every night on the 10 o'clock news, simply to…
pjohnf - California college asks students to choose from SIX genders when filling out admissions forms - Quin
Somebody needs to tell UC Irvine that contrary to what they want to believe, there are only two genders in this world, you're either a male or a female and nature and God determine what you are not how you define yourself.

"...my tax dollar paid to scoop up his body so I have every right to know who it is." What an incredibly selfish, arrogant, and morbid thing to post. You don't have a RIGHT to know, you just WANT to know and you're making up BS excuses over it. You think you have a 'right" to know because you pay taxes. Guess what, there are a LOT of things like this you'll never know.…

I just shake my head when I look at Lurch Kerry's and Obama's naivety when dealing with Iran. Do these two actually believe Iran, as Iran's leaders shout death to America? The Iranian nuke deal is a farce and leaves the middle east and Israel in grave danger and Obama and Kerry don't see it. The Iran deal will be another of Obama's failures and it will have dire consequences…

Quincy mayor's race money trickling in

Both the incumbent and the challenger will be picking up the pace to fill their respective warchests

The two men running for Quincy mayor have turned in their latest quarterly campaign reports.

Quincy Mayor John Spring collected only $1,525 during the fourth quarter of 2012, but he reported a first quarter donation of $5,000 from Foresight Energy Services of St. Louis on January 11 and the quarterly report was filed on January 12. That, coupled with the $19,111 he reported on hand, puts his total at $24,111.

While that total may seem low as Spring spent nearly $200,000 on his two previous mayoral runs, he should have no problemsraising campaign funds during the first quarter leading up to the April 9 general election.

Spring’s challenger, Third Ward Republican Alderman Kyle Moore, raised $9,979 in the fourth quarter and also received $1,250 in in-kind contributions.

Moore’s cash on hand was at $36,420 as of Tuesday’s filing, but then a $5,000 contribution from State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) was posted Tuesday afternoon, to bring Moore's reported cash to $41,420
