Protesters gather to fight deer culling in preserves

NOOOOOOoOOO! Can't we use technology to resurrect them?  (Apr 26, 2013 | post #66)

Neighbors fear subdivision would increase traffic, flood ...

They should take care, and make sure the land will generate enough tax revenue for the school district. Cookie cutter designs often generate lower value properties. Flooding isn't a big risk if you pay for a good foundation. A couple concrete walls would not hurt either. Maybe it would be better to start zoning some of the low value areas as commercial. Reducing the housing supply would raise property values, and earn more money for schools. Renovating some of the old addresses would be a boon for construction.  (Apr 17, 2013 | post #2)

IDOT Studying I-55 'Managed Lane' Idea, Doing Survey

Seems fair to me. We need to pay for the roads, and this idea will make sure those who are using the road pays for the road. I don't want to support freeloaders who think I should pay for their asphalt through my taxes.  (Apr 11, 2013 | post #10)

Should Backyard Chicken Coops be Allowed in Bolingbrook?

It would be a cheap source of good food, but there is an animal welfare issue. Raising chickens commercially is not easy. You must make sure they are well fed and have water, but you also need to know what signs to look for when dealing with parasites or a virus. Sores and broken bones are also injuries you need to keep an eye out for. How many here can say they know they would catch all the welfare issues before they become an issue, if they were raising just a single chicken, or six? I would, but I have a degree. How many of you know what a parasite on a chicken looks like?  (Apr 10, 2013 | post #30)

War With North Korea Imminent ?

Has everyone forgotten, the cease fire was between North Korea and the United States, not NK and SK? There never has been a treaty between NK and SK, especially one to void. When NK announced the cease fire with SK was null and void, NK never said the cease fire with the US is also null and void. Why is that important? Think of NK as a slippery lawyer in court. Words are precise, and statements well thought out. If they garner the reaction they want, they can claim they never broke the cease fire with the US, and that we are the aggressors. NK will not attack US troops directly. Instead, they will huff and puff, and launch a few shells at an empty beach. Kim is playing a dangerous game, to demonstrate to his senior staff he is strong enough, or atleast dangerous enough, for the job.  (Apr 10, 2013 | post #12)

Why am I constantly harrassed at Jewel?

Most of those sale-persons are paid a low wage and a commission, so it is pretty cheap for companies to hire a few people desperate in our current times. People are desperate, and when they are telling you about a great newspaper they want you to subscribe to, what they really are doing, is begging you to put food in their kids' mouths.  (Apr 9, 2013 | post #5)

Drew Peterson Moved To Stateville Prison To Begin Sentence

Quote of the year. Drew Peterson's lawyer: ' I'm sure the inmates will love him once they get to know him' http://trib.in/X2H VRA Yeah. I bet they will 'love' him too.  (Feb 25, 2013 | post #10)

Bellwood First Party Breaking some laws?

There is a basic idea; the vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil. Spoil your vote on someone who you believe is not evil or corrupt. I haven't said either of the two major candidates are, nor will I say who you vote for is not, but the chances of a good individual coming into office increases with each wasted vote.  (Jan 17, 2013 | post #4)

Cars in Romeoville with tinted windows

Because a lot of what is legal is private. I am not interested in letting the world know when, what and where my gf and I make out. I also am not interested in the world knowing where I keep my papers, valuables, or give the world a chance to track my activities. That knowledge can effect my ability to negotiate for a contract.  (Oct 30, 2012 | post #34)

Cars in Romeoville with tinted windows

The whole being nosy thing. It helped break my family apart. The village my parents lived in, where my mom still lives, is against my family now. Neighbors are not only nosy, but love gossip and being judgmental. The neighbor is anti-immigrants and said while my mom was in ear shot he wished the Europeans next door would get out. He lived there for only a couple years at that point. My parents have been there for some 25 years. The police in Woodridge wont stop this one particular family from breaking into the house and stealing items, because it is just under x amount of dollars in value and they think she is sick in the head. The mother and daughter of the B&E family use what they steal to buy narcotics. Has my family ever spied on others in the neighborhood? No, we haven't. Before I moved away, we kept to our selves and didn't bother anyone. Maybe it should be law, that nosy people get their noses plucked off.  (Oct 27, 2012 | post #30)

Cars in Romeoville with tinted windows

This is how one contributes with a useful, informative and concise post. I suppose a sticker requirement would be useful in the quick identification of legal tints. But it is also possible to tint it a bit more after a sticker is put on. Privacy tinting could be a civil right. An early post complained we could not see if the person inside a car was raping a little child. The inside of a car, unless it is being search by the police with reasonable expectations of discovery of specific criminal activities, is as private as your own home, with the only limitations being the ability of the driver to maintain clear visibility and awareness. That means, if your argument were to stick, it would also apply to homes, where most crimes take place anyways. You should try living in a glass house for a while before throwing stones, not that you have yet.  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #28)

Immigration - Woodridge, IL

Ah, so you used google translate. Here are a few tips for the future. Turn off the caps lock; it makes you look ridiculous. Be relevant to the conversation; you haven't come with any concise arguments. Be consistent... Well, you certainly have been consistent so far. I might ask you to be a little coherent as well; I do not know why you jumped from Mexico to Russia. You might want to get some actual libertarian values too; I am for getting rid of as many laws and regulations possible that limit freedoms, which include immigration laws.  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #69)
