Another bureaucrat elected. Just what we need. Things aren't' bad enough in Illinois without electing another bureaucrat to Congress. Bobby Schilling is an outstanding individual and a self made entrepreneur. He is a good family man and is of high moral character. But once again, we let the Democrats gerrymander the district so that they can elect one of their own. Another disgusting bureaucrat and a further sign of mediocrity in our Government. Illinois...........rapidly becoming the worst State in the Union.

You may want to go check out who held that seat for many years. OH! it was a democrat before the lines got redrawn.
Schilling didn't do enough to protect jobs in the area. He was selling the r.i. ars. down the river.
And Bustos has only been in gov. for 4 yrs. Thats far from being a bureaucrat

Bustos is a Health Care Bureaucrat. Lane Evans was a decent Congressman but they had to gerrymander the district in order for this woman to get elected. She will be nothing but a rubber stamp for Obama and his minions. Totally worthless.

What did schilling do for the district? Nothing. Oh! thats right he lost a lot of jobs out of the area and tried to kill the R.I. ARS.

How did Schilling lose jobs? Don't be general. Be specific.
#6 Nov 13, 2012
Lets see, he voted against thomson prison before he flipped and was for it.
The factory that closed and shipped jobs to china in whiteside county, owned by bain capital.
Then lets look at galesburg.
He wanted to cut employment at the arsenial by going private, you know and I know what happens there. They grab tax money and run not making any jobs.

Listen folks, there is no sense in harping about it...last tuesday the USA ceased to exist. Just pack up, move to another Country and wait it out until these liberal savages have finished killing each other off. The Country went off the cliff tuesday night, and the economy has failed. Buisnesses are shutting down and pulling out, doctors are pulling out, and all that will be left here are raginf psychotics that will be starving and trying to kill off anybody who gets in their way for food that they will soon run out of. When that's gone, the liberal savages will resort to cannabalism, and will become disease infsted and will finally die of to extinction. We will never see the Country we once lived in again. It's over. Maybe our grandkids or great grandkids might be able to reform a new Country after the evil has been exterminated for the land that was once the USA, but more than likely the Native Americans will take back what was righfully theirs to begin with, and start their own sanctuary. THE USA became evil to the core, and it perished due to those wrongs. Find a place to live where actual human beings care, and understand that doing the right thing precedes the "you owe me" attitude that destroyed what was once the USA. The Cancer that was once liberalism is now eraddicting itself, and has been isolated, cutoff, and the disease ridden filth are now dying off. Yes we all lost the Country we loved, but the vile filth that caused it's demise will pay the ultimate price for it with their miserable lives. We are the cure for that cancer...leave them to die, and let them die quickly.

I worked for both the Federal Government and Private enterprise. If you think Govt is more efficient than private enterprise, you are sadly mistaken. Govt. is inefficient, stifles competition and drains taxpayers. If the arsenal was privatized it would be better managed, higher paying and more efficient. Of course you probably would have to work too. Bobby voted against Thomson because it was rumored terrorists were going to be housed there and citizens did not want that. Once that was clarified he voted for it. You don't mention the factory in Whiteside county so I don't know about that. In any event what has Bain Capital got to do with Bobby Schilling? Bobby is a self made man who has worked hard all his life and a darned good Representative. Bustous is a leftist, socialist bureaucrat who will add nothing to the 17th District. She will be nothing but a rubber stamp for Obama and Pelosi, part of the worst regime in the history of the United States.

Rep Schilling was a bad candidate that was not college educated.
Rep Schilling flopped like a dead fish on the Thomson prison.
Rep Schilling flopped on passenger rail.
Rep Schilling fell flat on the I74 bridge.
He blamed it on he state finances but then both states came up with the money and he still could not deliver.
What we need is a proven leader that is college educated that was the mastermind behind Schillings first win.
A man that shed blood for his country and would be a great US Congressman that would beat Bustos and bring honor and integrity to the Congressional spot.
Bill Albracht would be the perfect Congressman for our area.
Albracht would be a true advocate for the arsenal and here is no way thAt anything would happen to the arsenal under Bill Albrachts watch.
A man that shed blood for his country or a Durbin yes man.
The choice for courage, honor and integrity is Bill Albracht

You put way too much emphasis on College Education. It is fine to have that but there are many intelligent people who are way smarter than people who go to college. Just because you go to college does not make you anything special. Life experience is way more important than any college education, although the two together makes it better if possible. That being said, I never heard of Mr. Albracht but if he is good as you say he is then how did the Republicans miss him? Did he run against Schilling? Schilling may not be perfect but he is one hell of a lot better than what got elected. People like Mr. Albracht should stay in the mix and sooner or later somebody will discover him. We need to get these left wingers out of Illinois. They are killing the State.

Max...Dino...campain manager...who ever you are from canton.
Listen closely, do you hear that sound!!!!!!!!!!
It's shit your tring spin to the public.
You ask for a list, I gave it to you. Then excuses.
Have you ever live by a prison, I have and would rather have the terroists as in mates. Over the likes of crooks you will get now. With local crooks, you get their family moving into town with drugs and trouble. Trust me been there and done that. I wouldn't live in a town with a prison any more.
If Bobby doesn't know about the factory in whiteside county. He's dumber than Nixon was on watergate.
He might be a good guy...but not for the working man.
Private enterprise.....ever hear of take overs and mergers. When you have one company how can you have competion, not.
Check private insurance in the state of ill. they have you by the ass they set all the rules and rates.
Check the power companys, who own this state. Mike jacobs just sold us down the river on that.
Who owns the water you drink?????
Wake up your in a dream world!!!!!!!!!!
#12 Nov 15, 2012
I will agree with the college education part.
To many dumb people with sheep skins trying to run the business and country and don't have a clue.
I will take a person with street smarts any day of the week to work for me. Easier to train and don't think they know it all like a college ede. idiot.
Voc. train it one of the best things this country can do for the young people.

Sounds like you need a little anger management. I got a friend who used to work at Interstate Brands, the makers of twinkles and wonder bread. You need to tell him how wonderful all these unions are. You think they will take care of his family now that the plant has closed? I would rather drink healthy water than the calcified urine you are drinking. Wake up. This country is in deep shit and there is enough blame to go around for every one. I don't know what the answer is but I do know what isn't and that is Obama. He is a total disaster and it is going to get much, much worse. The guy does not have a clue about what it takes to run anything, let alone a country. Now go have a glass of Kool-aid. Might take the edge off.
#14 Nov 16, 2012
First off old man! Interstate brands was going under in 2004. They just delayed the death of it so upper management could get better pay. Now they are trying to blame the union for poor management. It's always the workers fault when a company goes under, never poor management. You might want to take a lesson from you first line. You are the one with the anger problem. I have been quoting facts. You jump on with insults. I still think your one and the same person, with numbers there is safety.
If Obama is not the answer, then why did all the republicans go vote for him when he was running against Hillary. They choose to run against him instead of her. Now it has come full circle to bit them and you in the ass. So now you want to cry about it.
When she runs in 2016 vote for her and not some dumbass.
Obama should make Romney sec of business, then when he falls on his ass then you will see how bad he really is.
Obama is not the answer but romney was way worse.
Even his and ryans state didn't vote for them. That says a lot.
Try checking maytag in galesburg sometime. Tell yourself some lies about that when you know the true story. Also wonder bread is not the factory in whiteside, that closed and shipped over seas.
#15 Nov 16, 2012
I've got numbers, yes sir and huh.
#16 Nov 16, 2012
First of all old Lady, you really do need anger management. You go off half cocked and don't have a clue what you are talking about. In case you don't know it, and I doubt you do, in a Democratic society, someone has to have an edge and it is usually the employer. It has to be that way in order to be successful. Now I realize that you can only take so much as an employee. Companies that mis-treat usually aren't around very long. If you are looking for a society in which everybody is the same and you want a level playing field, try communism. That is what they pride themselves on. Unless you are living with your head in the sand, we all know how that works out. China now runs it's society using State run Capitalism. In that society, they pick the winners and losers. At first it seems pretty good but after a while you either work under their terms or else. People in China work long, hard grueling hours. That society is ready to implode within itself because their is so much strife. I have never been and never will be a member of the Republican Party although I will say that their standards are much higher than the Democrats. I have voted Democrat in most elections in my life with the exception of the last two. Obama is a liar and bad for the country. I don't know what the answers are but neither do you, old lady. Yeah, I know..........you got all the facts. Yeah right!
#17 Nov 16, 2012
Just like all your posts. Your full of shit again..........Not a woman.........not a democrat..........not a republican.
Wrong on who needs the anger management classes.
I put out the facts your run off on insults and nonreplys.
Where is your talking points.
Business and labor need to work together to make america great again. Not I'VE GOT THE UPPER HAND SO I'M GOD.
Like maytag in galesburg, factory in whiteside county, wonder bread.
Work smarter and together and succeed. Work alone and your going to fail.
Thats why this country is in such a shitter.
Tip Oneil and Regan never saw eye to eye but they got stuff done.
#18 Nov 16, 2012
You completely misunderstand everything which is what I am guessing makes you so angry. I am not talking about politics when I am referring to someone having the upper hand. When I own a company and I employ people then I have an edge because I am the owner. How I use that edge will depend on how successful I am. That is just simply the way it is in this country. It has to be that way or else what am I in business for. Don't you get that? I see you watch a lot of TV because you always refer to "talking points", something the pundits always refer to. Hold fast to your Democrat line, dumb ass. Don't take any responsibility for any of those places closing. Blame it all on Republicans and Business and none on the parasites who bleed them dry. Do things like they do in Obama's Chicago land which is called the BOHICA way. "Bend over, here it comes again."
#19 Nov 16, 2012
Like I said, put out some facts.
Till then your hot air.
If you went to school you would know they have debate teams and those teams try to use talking points.
Wrong again, keep guessing. All accounts.
You may want to see a dr., you have this fetish for someone being angry. I deal in facts. Not hot air. Just like Nate Silver. He deals in facts.
Till you have something better, you have a wonderful day. You need it.
#20 Nov 16, 2012
Nate Silver is your hero? Now I know why you are so mixed up. Glad you went to school. Met your match didn't you old lady? Can't intimidate everybody but you probably are the kind of bully who does intimidate most people. Sad we got people of your ilk running around posturing on "talking points." Nobody else knows what they are except you and Nate Silver, your hero. Have a nice day old lady. I wish you luck in your Management Anger class. You will need it.
