Has anybody in Blagojevitch's office asked Mr. Toney Watkins to prove that he had funds available for his development project? No!
Had they done so, they would have realized the company has no money.

Why would someone from Southern Paris, France be commenting on something that may/or may not be happening in some small town in Southern Illinois, USA... Care to fill me in Thomas? I'm all ears, and am just curious.

Thomas commented from Southern Paris, France because we have no control over what it post as our home base. THATS WHY! Are you from Rochester, NY? Then why are you commenting on a small town in SI? I am from SI. But I do not know what it will say after I hit the Post Comment tab.

Does anyone believe this project will ever get off the ground? I realize things of this magnitude don't happen overnight but the cloak of silence and secrecy and the amount of time that has transpired makes me wonder if it's all a bunch of BS and is someone's pipedream... Maybe Thomas knows something, but it appears he's not talking about it.

It will be a safe-haven for liberal scum like the Sheriff and the county board to hang out get drunk on county time and away from prying eyes, such as the state highway patrol, God forbid a decent person visit them at their resort, the conspiracies will start of how to rid themselves of a spy or just some small ANT that fell into their trap, I say go ahead give them what they want, if not be prepared to pay more of your hard-earned dollars in fixed court orders and bogus traffic violations, planted drug busts, unauthorized searches of personal property. Is everyone ignorant to this, don't any of the decent people in Perry County recognise that fraud is being committed by your very own judicial system, are we all just pawns in the twisted game played by the system in which you live, do you think of your children, is this the type of corrupt enviroment we want to raise our children, I DO NOT THINK SO, WE HAVE RIGHTS, STAND BESIDE ME, WE ARE NOT WEAK, WE CAN DEFEAT THE WRONGS COMMITTED AGAINST OUR COMMUNITY, IN THE POLLS PEOPLE, IN THE POLLS, COME ON PEOPLE STAND UP FOR YOURSELVES, WE CANNOT BE PUSHED,FORCED AND RAILROADED ANY LONGER YOU HAVE A VOICE
