This is the right wing backward state that Scott Reeder of the Illinois News Network, Rauner's propaganda minister, wants Illinois to emulate. Reeder, October 31, 2014: "STATEHOUSE REEDER: Indiana: Building a better sandbox" Well Reeder, guess what Indiana just did in their sandbox.

Of course, Scott "Indiana is the place to be" Reeder (except if you are other than very wealthy or a union member or gay, bi, or any of those other types of people) thinks that those over paid medical professors who taught the doctors how to perform that transplant on his brother shoul…

Pay close attention, kids. This is how theocracy starts. These fake Christians are an insult to real Christians and to the God they claim to represent. We used to drive through Indiana on trips. Never again, until they repeal this revoltingly offensive law. Boycott, and if you live in Indiana, th…

The city should allow the downtown business owners to do anything to get business . Why on earth would a mayor or other city officials want to keep business from succeeding in the downtown area.????? Get out of the way City and let business grow . The govt. seems to me to be the PROBLEM in Strea…

Streator use to pick up their own garbage but that is no longer true. with so many empty s…

rustyp, allow me to get into this a little further. Let me ask, do you take ruralright seriously? Do you spend intellectual energy focusing on his content/message? Have you not come to expect anything from him will be nothing more than a boilerplate diatribe? Do you find his reasoning worthy of…

I am not criticizing or showing disrespect for Christianity. However I would like to say this. I am not an expert on the Constitution,and I don't think it declares that the United States is a Christian Nation. Being Catholic I would like to believe that it is. Personally I don't think the found…

It makes a big difference, Rustyp. Knowing the source is knowing the context. Passing it off as a news article implies unbiased reporting. Understanding that it is a propaganda piece places it under closer scrutiny. The cliché "consider the source" is a cliché because it is a standar…

Not watching the news much, huh? Not my problem. Liberal politicians AND liberal judges generally have more empathy for the criminal than the victim. You bet I'm a Tea Party conservative. What are you? Do you even know? And I have become increasingly angry. If you aren't angry yourself, you …

Truman on Republicans: "they admire. the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it." Some things never change. The odd thing about Rauner is he thinks he is right. He really thinks he knows what is "good for them". Even said so.

What difference does it make where this article is located, what its sources might be, who the author is etc. ? Judge the article by the content then take it for what its worth, feel free to fact check every word. Focus on the content/message being delivered.

More hate and fear mongering not based on or backed up by any any verifiable facts.. If you don't want to be taken as the village idiot you might try to present your opinion with something other than mindless drivel or regurgitated material found on all the right wing teabagger discussion groups. …
