I haven't messed with any comments like that. Might be an "intense debate" issue, the third party that we use for processing comments. I could have just said "my sandbox, my rules" but it didn't apply here. :) BG

Strawman has it exactly right. Fifty years of overwrought Liberal policies have delivered an uneducated, uncivilized segment of the population that has never known accountability and worse, never experienced the satisfaction of accomplishment. People of all races have had great opportunity in this Country, as evidenced by throngs of immigrants who have succeeded. As for blacks in particular, there…

I'd like to know why some comments are allowed considerable word count and others, being submitted to the same thread, and already much shorter than those posted, are blocked as being "a little too long" ? How do you account for the inconsistent 'editing' program?

No matter who or what entity decided the trash issue, the new admin is, at the very least trying to NOT hide monetary losses, like the last admin and the ones before it, Dem or Rep. Weren't we going in the hole by hundreds of thousands a year with trash, and not to mention the hydro fiasco, but I will. Aren't they at least trying? I sincerely hope all the posters hating on this admin show…

Obama, Sharpton, Holder and de Blasio are not welcome at the funerals of these men. They don't even acknowledge that their shooter killed minority officers. Anybody notice that?

Quinn vetoes Illinois legislation limiting FOIA

5 months, 3 weeks ago by Bob Gough

Gov. Pat Quinn has vetoed legislation that would’ve made it more difficult for members of the public to obtain large numbers of records under the Freedom of Information Act.

Quinn vetoed the measure Friday. It was sponsored by House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie, a Chicago Democrat, and passed the Legislature in May. The legislation would have allowed public bodies to charge fees for providing electronic data if FOIA requests involved large amounts of information. It also would have given public entities exemptions from having to make copies of records on their websites.

Bill supporters said the measure eliminated “undue burdens.” It was opposed by numerous press associations.

Quinn says the bill penalized those “seeking to learn more about their government.”
