I proudly support marriage equality, abortion rights, and most of President Obama's policies.  (Apr 16, 2014 | post #30)

Bro. John Gamblin resigns from Grace Baptist Church

Grace Baptist still has an interim pastor, and his name is Charley Westbrook. He was appointed in late Feburary 2012. Assistant Pastor John Oswald left to form his own Journey Group-styled home church in August 2012. Expect the church to have a permanent senior pastor by April 2013.  (Jan 1, 2013 | post #20)

#IL12: Happy that Bill Enyart is our new Congressman

Looks like we have a worthy replacement for Jerry Costello, and his name is Bill Enyart. Thank God it's not Jason "Spoiled Brat" Plummer as our Congressman.  (Nov 9, 2012 | post #1)

Dan Beiser propaganda

Dan Beiser's opponent Kathy Smith (R) is a corrupt Teabagger extremist. Beiser may not as liberal as I would like him to be, but Smith is worse.  (Nov 2, 2012 | post #8)

free justice

personally believe that the suspensions for the MILF tweet were wrong and unjust. However, I can understand the person(s) tweeting about threatening to blow up the school warranting a suspension, and likely an expulsionLink: http://fox2now.com /2012/10/25/social -media-gets-studen ts-suspended-at-gr anite-city-hs/  (Oct 25, 2012 | post #108)

Holy Crap, I graduated from that school in 2009. And ANY and all people who are defending these suspensions are likely to be right-wing morons and/or GCHS admin apologists.  (Oct 24, 2012 | post #75)

For the last time, Mr. GCHS Handbook apologist, what the student did was right. Get out of Madison County, you scum!  (Oct 24, 2012 | post #28)

free justice

I believe that the suspensions were unfair and an insult to free speech. UNLESS there is reasonable evidence that there is/was harassment or bullying from twitter (and in this instance, it was the admins interfering unjustly), school admins had NO right to suspend the students in question. Calling a teacher a "MILF" is NOT sexual harassment, unless she was directly threatened by it.  (Oct 24, 2012 | post #21)

No Idiot Here, there's a time and a place for uniforms. A public school is NO place for school uniforms. I can understand if it was a private school or a religious school having them.  (Oct 24, 2012 | post #14)
