Funny, I thought GuyFawkes10 was suggesting that the people would indeed fly to STL, and then shuttles would drive them back to Quincy. Sounds like enplanements to me.
eaglebeaky - Quincy Regional Airport makes another late season push for 10,000 departures - Quincy, IL News - Qui
With all due respect, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there has got to be a rule against what you are suggesting. In order to receive the federal aviation grant, there have to be 10,000 enplanements. (Enplanements are not the number of tickets that are sold, it's the number of ticketed passengers who actually travel on the flights.) If what you're suggesting was allowed, the…
GoQuincy - QPD Blotter for November 22, 2014 - Quincy, IL News -
Is there a list somewhere on the city's website of how many council meetings attended and or missed by aldermen? If not there should be. That is just as important if not more than Mayor Moore's City report card ie., "how are we doing".
CoolEdge - Strawman: The Guy the Liberal Press Doesn\'t Know Exists..... - Quincy, IL News -
This is off topic, but your claims like this really need a link, instead of you spewing Democrat talking points on every issue. "a guy paid by oil companies to tell you that extreme levels of his company's byproduct are okeydokey can be more convincing than the near-entirety of Earth's scientists" Who is that oil company guy? And who is "the near entirety" guy? I read the actual…

Obama’s Power Grab

1 day, 3 hours ago by F.H. Buckley

Since I wrote a book on the rise of presidential power back in April, I’m tempted to say “I told you so.” As it turns out, 2014 was a good year to publish The Once and Future King.But even then, I didn’t quite anticipate the inability of some of my friends on the Right to get it. Obama’s amnesty was…

Thoughts on Obama's Amnesty Speech

22 hours, 42 minutes ago by Aaron Goldstein

I did not watch President Obama's amnesty speech last night. However, I did read it this morning and would like to share my thoughts on it with you. Obama is in fine disingenuous form. Obama says "our immigration system is broken -- and everybody knows it" and then a minute later says, "Overall, the…

Immigration and the Future

22 hours, 58 minutes ago by Emily Zanotti

The world is ending.Okay, it's not even close to ending, but if you can't be hyperbolic on days like this, and suggest that a single man can bring about the apocalypse with a seventeen minute speech that people probably confused with a cold open to the Latin Grammys, what good is being a conservative…

Mosheh (Son of Isadore) Twersky, R.I.P.

1 day, 5 hours ago by Jay D. Homnick

It is an axiom of long standing that Jewish blood is cheap. The moral equivalence displayed by President Obama in the wake of a brutal massacre of Jews in prayer — “Too many Jews have died; too many Palestinians have died” — is despicable but not surprising. What possible difference could there be between…

Hey, Hey, Hey, It’s Judgment Day

Bill Cosby raped me.Sorry, it just seemed like the “in” thing to say. Okay. So I have never met the man. But I feel like I’ve known him all these years. And to know him is to be known by him. At least cable news imparts this notion.Joan Tarshis, in 1969 a nineteen-year-old comedy writer, thought she…

Is Pope Francis Duping Liberals on Marriage?

1 day, 5 hours ago by Paul Kengor

It’s no secret that liberals adore Pope Francis. The more secular the “progressive,” the greater the reverence for the new man in the Vatican. Liberals—which includes liberal Catholics and Protestants as well as secularists—see the pontiff as the long-awaited liberator of the reactionary Roman Catholic…

The Bush Family Ties

1 day, 5 hours ago by Janice Shaw Crouse

George W. Bush’s critics, if they bother to read 41: Portrait of My Father, will likely complain that what the book shows best is nepotism, the doors that can be opened by tribal connections. To the less cynical eye, however, this volume is a testament to the meaning and value of the institution of the…

Two weeks ago Barack Obama presided over the electoral cataclysm he and his party richly deserved, but managed to escape, in 2012.The Democrats lost eight Senate seats, a number that will grow to nine on December 6 when Bill Cassidy finishes off the mortally wounded Mary Landrieu in Louisiana.

Net Neutrality Compromises the Internet’s Future

1 day, 5 hours ago by Donald Rieck, Wayne Winegarden

Perhaps President Obama envisions that the Internet is operated by Ernestine, the condescending telephone operator played by Lily Tomlin on Laugh-In. Otherwise, it is difficult to justify why he would want to hobble the 21st century broadband industry with regulations designed in the early 20th century.  Even…

White House Annoyed Networks Won't Carry Immigration Announcement

Taking a Bite Out of The Obamacare Enrollment Numbers
