Sv3 - New jail or no new jail? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
You are willing then to hand over a debatable amount of 25 million dollars? Without a plan, without any allocation of properties? All on the ridiculous idea it's unsafe for the employees? The county will get sued is the latest argument.... In the most secure supermax prisons lawsuits I'm sure are most common. So forgive me for not trusting the government to handle our money reasonably.…

SilenceDogood22 - New jail or no new jail? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
So if we are going to take care of ourselves, should we shut the jail down, eliminate the Sheriff's department, shut down the road commission, shut down the fire department, and just let the neighbors bring over buckets of water when our house is on fire? Or get out our ropes and hang folks in the street for stealing horses? I'm about as capitalist and right wing as they come. I'll…

While every one is fighting over whether he is really dead or not, no one finds it strange that this guy and his boss both shot themselves in the same month. Maybe they were both were involved in something bad enough that they felt this was the only option.

Stick a fork in Mike Pence’s hopes of running for president. He’s done.

Animal Farm remains one of my all time favorite books. It’s a satire of Communist Russia AND it’s got farm animals, so I can read it to my three-year-old and she likes it. The indoctrination has to start early, after all. Now, I know it’s a reference that’s been made on this Front Page before (and, as…

Obama’s Iran Monkey Trap

10 hours, 18 minutes ago

The idea of a monkey trap is spectacularly elegant. A bit of food or a shiny object is placed inside a sturdy object (often a coconut is mentioned but the image comes from a termite hill being used for the purpose). There is a hole that is just big enough for the monkey’s hand to pass through. However,…
