I am not blaming anyone - I do my own taxes and I am lazy. What does "illegally defrauding Illinois" mean if it is not an accusation that one didn't pay their taxes??

10-23-14 "Amazon posted its third quarter earnings results today and they were not pretty: the company said it had a operating loss of $544 million, more than twenty times what was lost for the same period in 2013. Its revenues grew to $20.84 billion, an increase of 20 percent over the same period last year, but less than what investors were expecting. In its projections for next quarter, Amazon said…

If you actually did pay the use tax on line 23 you are exceptionally unusual and I never accused you of not paying your use tax. As far as over paying your use tax, that is no ones fault but your own (don't blame your accountant or tax preparer you are responsible for everything that goes on your tax return). Line 23 can be used to report ACTUAL use tax owed or you can use the USE TAX TABLE…

I am as cynical as they come - even I wouldn't believe the smoke bomb theory - Rosie O'Donnell probably would.

Or the voters might allow the school district to take care of that on Tuesday. And, no, I don't believe anyone with the School District shoved smoke bombs in the vents...although I'm guessing some of the grassy knollers thought that when they read the story. BG

Sullivan gets NRA endorsement

2 years ago by Bob Gough

State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) today received the endorsement from the National Rifle Association.

Sullivan and Todd Vandermyde of the NRA appeared at Quincy’s Clat Adams Park this morning to discuss the endorsement and second amendment issues.

“I cannot stress enough how important it is that we have a strong pro-gun, downstate voice like John Sullivan in a leadership role in Springfield to advocate for Second Amendment Issues,” said Vandermyde. “John Sullivan’s leadership has been critical to blocking anti-gun legislation.”

Sullivan pledged to Vandermyde that he would work to bring a Concealed Carry vote to the Senate floor, but Vandermyde said there are lawsuits in play that the NRA is supporting that he hopes will force the issue.

“People want to cut out Chicago and have different laws, but when you’re talking about constitutional rights, they don’t change because of the zip code,” Vandermyde said.

Vandermyde said he believes support in the Illinois House and Senate for the issue is growing, but it still doesn’t have the support of Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago).

“President Cullerton is a long time supporter of gun control measures and Illinois' current law on concealed carry,” said Cullerton spokesperson Phelon Rikeesha. His stance reflects the position of the majority of those living in his district.”

“Second Amendment rights are a personal issue for me, and I’m grateful for the support of the NRA.” Sullivan said.

Sullivan’s opponent, Republican Randy Frese of Paloma, also issued a news release regarding the NRA today, saying he received the group’s highest rating.

“As an avid sportsman and advocate of gun rights, this rating is important to me.  I am a proud member of the NRA and, as senator of the 47th District, I will staunchly defend my constituent’s gun right,” Frese said.  “My first bill that I pledge to file will be for conceal and carry to be a right in Illinois.  Law abiding citizens should have a right to protect themselves, their family and their property.  I will advocate on their behalf and on behalf of the NRA in the senate.”
