I have as much to give thanks for as the Native Americans (not Indians) did when the pilgrims (white man) egotistically sailed over and proceeded to make the natives dependent upon alcohol so as to instill complacency while they raped their women, proceeded to steal their land, and graciously move then unto reservations and profit off casinos. These white men whom stole the native's land, now…

Is it possible that law enforcement receive 'bonus kickbacks' for certain types of arrests or busts, not unlike monetary offerings and vacations given to doctors/psychiatrists by pharmaceuticals reps for pawning off drugs on patients. That type of unethical corruption couldn't really exist?

Soon Darren Wilson will be resigning. Which is likely in the best interest of his safety, not to mention, the respectful thing to do. He may wish to consider complete reconstructive surgery rendering him unrecognizeable ala Casey Anthony. Many targets will likely be painted upon him by remaining embittered prior protestors.

Has anyone seen the Michael Douglas film "Falling Down"? I always felt it sad that William Foster (Douglas) was shot by Martin Prendergrass (Robert Duvall), and not the other way around. All he did was draw a colored water pistol. Anyone could have been able to discern such. The over zealous authoritative ego had to bring him down so that he'd never get to see another of his daughter's…

The number required to do away with sales tax is an additional 15% on top of what we already pay. So it would be 22.75%. http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/consi... And the universal rebate would make it progressive so it's really not too bad an idea if we can get rid of the IRS in…

McDonough County Grain Bin Fire now out

6 months, 1 week ago by Scott Hardy

Had been burning since Monday

The Illinois State Police say that the grain bin fire near Adair, Illinois in eastern McDonough County has been put out, and U.S. Route 136 is now open for normal traffic.

The road had been closed since Monday, with traffic rerouted due to the potential hazard of a grain dust explosion.

No evacuation order had been issued for the town of Adair. But the Illinois State Police did ask several rural residents to evacuate their homes.

The fire started Monday afternoon at the bin, located at the junction of Illinois Routes 136 and Route 41.

The facility is owned by Western Grain Marketing. It can hold up to 1.5 million bushels of corn. Fire officials weren't sure how much corn was in the bin, but crews removed grain from the bin, so that firefighters from seven area departments, including New Salem, Bushnell, Emmet-Chalmers, Colchester, Industry, Table Grove and Macomb Fire Protection Districts could put out that fire. Crews transported water from multiple townships and dumped it into holding tanks for the pump trucks to extinguish the blaze.

RT @John Sexton: Yesterday, Ezra Klein insinuated Wilson was lying. Vox's top story. Thousands spread it. Later Klein acknowledged he was wrong. Oops!
