ONCEMORE1 - REBEL MEDIA: You\'re a grand old flag - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
The tone of both your posts on this topic indicate a disdain for the unequal distribution of federal taxes paid back to the States that paid them. I feel many on this site share that feeling. But by not mentioning the other, more personal disparity of the Government's virtual seizure of working people's earned income through taxation and subsequent distribution to non-workers, non-earners,…
WarCry - Quincy Police Blotter for July 23, 2014 - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
I don't believe employees are allowed to have/use cellphones in the courtrooms. That's where they're not allowed. I've been in a lot of the other offices - with my phone - that are in the courthouse.

pjohnf - REBEL MEDIA: "Stay out!" - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Videoing Quinn is hardly a crime and I thought politicians wanted transparency. If Quinn can't speak and have his remarks taped , maybe he has something to hide.
pjohnf - Too many governments? Downstate has the biggest share - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Us down staters like local control and certainly don't want the state to control any of our taxing bodies. We may have too many tax bodies but it gives us local control which is good thing. Centralization is a bad thing as shown by the Obama government and the Quinn/Madigan cabal which are out of control. The corrupt Chicago thug democrats have virtually destroyed Illinois and we in down state…

Twitter Releases Its Diversity Stats. And Boy, Are They Embarrassing.

3 hours, 15 minutes ago

Twitter today followed in the footsteps of Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and Facebook by releasing statistics on the race and gender of its workforce.

10 hours, 52 minutes ago

Greg Sargent points us to an interesting new CNN poll about Obamacare. It asks the usual question about favoring or opposing the law, with the usual results. The basic question shows that Obamacare is unpopular by 40-59 percent, but when you add in the folks who "oppose" it only because they wish it…

Nobody Knows What Makes a Good CEO

12 hours, 1 minute ago

Bloomberg has done a bit of charting of CEO pay vs. performance, and their results are on the right. Bottom line: there's essentially no link whatsoever between how well CEOs perform and how well they're paid: An analysis of compensation data publicly released by Equilar shows little correlation between…
