Freedom or Tyranny? Choose wisely Illinois.
Illinois State Rep. Kelly M. Cassidy (D-14) introduced a bill on Feb. 5 that would require gun owners to register every gun they own. According to the bill, called the Firearms Registration Act (HB4715), this would not just apply to new purchases but Illinoisans would also need to register guns they already own.
The primary problem with Common Core - a proposed set of K-12 education standards in math and language arts - is that it ignores state's rights.
The original and main intent of this plan was to raise the level of knowledge of our high school graduates. Unfortunately, it has gotten far off track and has become a nationalization of education. It's important to note that members of both parties have concerns with this plan.
Duke Pesta, an English professor at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, who gave testimony at a public hearing last year against Common Core, will speak about the standards from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday at Lincoln Middle School, 510 S. Ninth St. His visit is sponsored by La Crosse Citizens for Responsible Government.
If this is true (and since CNN is reporting it that's a big if), how many people died in this so-called scandal? When was there this kind of urgency to investigate the administration when 4 Americans were murdered in Benghazi? Why isn't CNN actively reporting about Benghazi? Mmm-hmmm, that's what I thought... #iMissAmerica
(CNN) -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is ordering an independent review of the nation's nuclear force following revelations of misconduct involving officers, the Pentagon said on Thursday.
Fair enough Mr. President. I won't let my son work in your administration as an ambassador. Remember Benghazi? So you just keep on fantasizing about how terrible it might be if your IMAGINARY son suffered a concussion playing a game and I'll pray for the REAL, LIVE parents of the 4 Americans who were murdered in Benghazi because you and your Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, chose to do nothing to protect them. As if that weren't bad enough you then came up with a series of cover ups and lies to distort the facts long enough to be re-elected. For shame, sir! Have you no sense of decency at all?
Three years ago, when I delivered my first State of the State address, Wisconsin's fiscal house was a mess. We were facing a $3.6 billion budget deficit, we owed millions to Minnesota from the tax reciprocity agreement, and we owed $233 million payment for past raids to the Patient Compensation fund.
Since then, we made tough, but prudent, decisions in order to put Wisconsin back on the road to prosperity. We enacted real, lasting reforms and we've worked tirelessly, to not only return to pre-recession economic levels, but catapult the state to even better growth.
Today, we have balanced the budget and given job creators the confidence they need to hire and invest in Wisconsin. Unemployment insurance claims are at a 13-year low, and nearly 13,000 new businesses have been created since I took office. We ended the last fiscal year with a $760 million surplus and revenue collections are up 8.4 percent for this fiscal year.
