If the only history people learn is what is spoon-fed in public school, they've probably missed out on the part where northern states would capture escaped slaves and send them back to their owners. They've probably missed how northern states that were supposedly "free" wouldn't allow blacks to live within their borders. Everyone wants to turn up their noses at the South, but if you're…

Keep it up people we are setting a precedent and its only as matter of time before the stars and stripes have to be removed/changed due to protest from native Americans, or Al Sharpton (lets be honest the north had slaves just like the south). After that its the Union Jack for centuries of persecution against the scots Irish, and on and on and on. Hell my mere existence as a white male could be offensive…

Illinois bill requires prescription for cold meds

1 year, 4 months ago by Associated Press

Bill would impact any cold and flu drug with pseudoephedrine

Legislation proposed by a state senator would require anyone with a cold to get a doctor's prescription to buy certain medicine.

The bill would impact any cold and flu drug with pseudoephedrine. The decongestant is an ingredient used to make methamphetamine.

The measure is sponsored by Peoria Democrat Sen. Dave Koehler.

State law already requires any drug containing pseudoephedrine to be kept behind pharmacy counters. Stores record the IDs of people who buy the medicine and there are limits on how much can be purchased.

Pekin police Chief Greg Nelson says the measure could "be a game changer in Illinois for meth" if it's approved, although it's expected to face resistance.

Oregon and Mississippi require prescriptions for the medicine.
