I have to agree with you on your assessment of the NRA. They are quiet disappointing, mostly due to the fact that they are fully endorsing a candidate that has signed an "assault weapons" ban into law. Obama has done no such thing. The NRA should have taken the higher road and endorsed neither candidate.  (Oct 25, 2012 | post #9)

Romney-Ryan - Chicago, IL

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! you have no idea what his budget consists of. Lowering taxes for the ultra-wealthy, cutting deductions for the middle class (ie, raising taxes), and it won't even balance until at least 2040. So even a "hard-line conservative" can't balance a budget or reduce the deficit. Nothing irritates me more than uninformed voters that vote based on party lines and not on facts.  (Sep 24, 2012 | post #36)

Idiot Jurors in the Drew Peterson Trial

Thanks for the spelling correction. Means, motive and opportunity is what it takes to convict someone. He obviously had the means and the motive, but the hearsay evidence was the only thing that linked him to an opportunity. Second hand verbal correspondence that was over 5 years old locked a man up. ZERO physical evidence or first hand witnesses. Do I think in my gut that the guy got what he deserved, absolutely! However, this case sets a bad precedence for future cases. Sixth amendment rights are eroding before our eyes.  (Sep 18, 2012 | post #10)

He was found guilty on some really evidence called heresay. You better hope that you are never accused of murder and have to go up against a bunch of heresay evidence. Don't take this the wrong way. I'm sure drew peterson was guilty, but without solid evidence it is wrong to lock him up. Remember, we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty in this country. NOT the other way around.  (Sep 13, 2012 | post #7)

Police: Armed Robbery in Bolingbrook Driveway

This is why citizens need the ability to defend themselves. Illinois needs to join the other 49 states and pass concealed carry.  (Sep 13, 2012 | post #1)

Some advice for DP

The ignorance in this country amazes me sometimes. It is possible to hold a conversation without derogatory remarks and attempting to belittle others. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.  (Sep 13, 2012 | post #6)

AS much as I agree with you that obama isn't the right choice for the next 4 years, I would say romney is worse. I believe romney will put people to work and lower the unemployment rate.... in India, Malaysia and China however. I see him doing nothing positive for the bottom 98% of the USA. Sure, I may be "wasting " a vote on Johnson, but my conscious will be clear at the end of the election that I did not aid in putting obama or romney into power to ruin this great country.  (Sep 10, 2012 | post #28)

It will not help him pick up any of the independent, elderly, minority or women votes he needs to win. Ryan helps bolster his base that would have voted for him no matter what.  (Aug 13, 2012 | post #1)

Yes, I too hope that they have to claim a loss on that store shortly after it opens.  (Jul 25, 2012 | post #25)

Glad I didn't have to travel that way much. They could take a few lessons on traffic management. Luckily they are about finished now.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #23)

Election Poll, June 2012 - Bolingbrook, IL

None of you stand to gain anything from a romney presidency unless you have large vested interests in big corporations AND have the resources to juggle your money with international assets and tax shelter banks to reduce your taxable income to nearly nothing. Considering everyone on here claimed bolingbrook, romeoville or berwyn as their hometown, I think it is safe to say you don't have those kinds of resources. A romney presidency will only shift the imbalance of assets in this country further to those that already own almost everything. I'm not against the rich, but I have a problem with millionaires paying a smaller effective tax rate than everyone in my family (who combined do not even come close to making $1 million a year). You all need to turn fox news off and actually learn what your politicians are doing to this country.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #15)

Gun Laws - Eau Claire, WI

Please constitutionally define militia for me and explain to me why a militia or any other able bodied man should not be able to own military grade firepower. The second amendment gives the constitution teeth. It was written, along with the other 9 amendments of the bill of rights, so that the states would ratify the constitution. The early states new the importance of individual gun ownership, but sadly it has been lost by the majority of the current populous.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #2)

Gun Laws - Bolingbrook, IL

Such few options to answer such a technical question. I only voted yes because we need nationwide concealed carry and better firearms education in our school systems. Guns are a reality we have to live with, so we need to look for solutions (other than banning) to help alleviate gang violence that constitutes the majority of firearms deaths. Mental episodes such as virginia tech, columbine, northern illinois university and Aurora, CO are statistical anomalies. Those anomalies will always find a way to do as much damage as they can. Taking away the second amendment only takes the teeth out of our constitution and realistically hands over all control to the government. I am more afraid of our government than I am of terrorist attacks.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #1)

They reorganized many moons ago and they have been a reputable business that does quality work for the best bid? You want to run bolingbrook? put yourself on the ballot and lets see if the residents of bolingbrook really think someone else could do more for bolingbrook than mayor claar and his trustees have done.  (Jun 27, 2012 | post #21)
