Please also keep in mind that 40% of sales tax revenue in Adams county comes from citizens who live OUTSIDE of Adams county who come here from Missouri and surrounding counties to shop and spend their money. So the cost of this project to the residents and taxpayers of Adams County is only about $15M. Granted, those traveling here might not be able to spend as much if the tax is more, but I doubt someone…

pjohnf - Google controls what we buy, the news we read — and Obama’s policies - Quincy, IL News -
Any company in bed with politicians of any stripe is bad for American's but government control of the internet is bad news.

Why is this comment even allowed? QJ should use some editorial judgement before they allow crap like this that is known to be completely false and can be verified as false with one phone call to the police. This is disgusting.

Yes many taxes once instituted never seem to go away but we will have chance to get rid of politicians who renege on their promise to stop the tax once the jail is paid for.

Should We Welcome Saudi Arabia to the Fight in the Middle East?

1 day, 22 hours ago

I have occasionally griped in this space about the fact that putative Middle East allies like Saudi Arabia and Jordan basically view the American military as a sort of mercenary force to fight their own tribal battles. Sure, they provide us with basing rights, and sometimes money, but they want us to…
