chebby79 - Yard waste stickers a no-go - Quincy, IL News -
it would not have generated $500k anyway. at $2.50 a sticker, folks would change what they do. either haul it down there themselves, or mulch, or compost piles. I recently mowed and had 4 barrels of grass x $2.50 = $10 x 4 weeks = $40 a month. for $40 a month I would change what I do. I'm close enuf tho, so I hauled it to Radio Road site. perhaps, raise the garbage stickers. double the price.…
pjohnf - Illinois House Passes Bill To Make Some Marijuana Possession Punishable By Ticket - Quincy, IL News
Good idea, we waste way too much time and resources chasing pot users. Our court systems and law enforcement are tied up in enforcing pot laws when they could be spending their time and resources on real crime. Pot use is no worse than the use of alcohol so we should treat pot the same as we treat alcohol use.

1 day, 3 hours ago by Neal B. Freeman

We still have a week to go, but it’s already clear that the Most Valuable Player of the Month will be Carly Fiorina. She wins the award because she has done what nobody else has thought to do or, more likely, had the nerve to do. She has said in a loud, clear voice that the Empress has no clothes.Carly…

They Heart Big Brother

1 day, 10 hours ago by David R. Carlin

Why are “liberals” or “progressives” great fans of big government? (I put the words in scare quotes because it seems to me that these people are, objectively speaking, illiberal and regressive.) There are, I suggest, four reasons.Liberals feel the need to repair the damage their moral values have done…

It Won’t Be Hillary

1 day, 10 hours ago by Scott McKay

Honestly, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign won’t go any further than — if it even gets as far as — her ill-fated 2008 attempt at returning to the White House. After all, Clinton isn’t a more attractive candidate now than she was then, and after two terms of a failed Democrat…

After killing hundreds of Yemenis, including many civilians, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) announced that it was halting its bombing campaign. Now Operation “Restoring Hope” is to begin. A cynic might wonder if that is the hope of the Saudi king for more subjects to rule and plunder. No doubt the…

Hillary Clinton Might Have Helped Russia Get Uranium in Return for Donations

This story is a tad bit complicated, but I can boil it down for you a little. Maybe. Bottom line? Hillary Clinton's foundation took a heck of a lot of money from a company that basically gave Russia our Uranium. Which is a problem. When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Russia, which was, at the…
