Re-elect McBride and Lorenz?

By:  Diane Benjamin I might have to say this once a week until the election:  Do Not Vote for 3 people even though the ballot says 3.  You are handing people votes who you really don’t want on the Council.  Voting for 1, maybe two, gives them a much better chance of winning since Normal […]

Subsidizing Wealth

By:  Diane Benjamin Order your electric vehicle from Rivian yet? Do you drive an electric vehicle? See this article:     https://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/taxing-the-poor-to-pay-for-your-electric-car?fbclid=IwAR0oVqcC6_ltCO7ccJgyVJQyhE_Ez2I5sGD0w8YtL86IUZn5DAOVz6xgEfw People who own electric vehicles have higher than average incomes.  They also own a second car for traveling.

The Illinois Progressive War on Children

By: Diane Benjamin Capitalism has proven to the world that competition produces better results than monopolies.  Costs decrease, quality increases, and better products are delivered to consumers. Illinois started a program in 2017 called Invest in Kids which provides a tax credit for parents wanting their kids in private schools but can’t afford it:   http://www.revenue.state.il.us/InvestInKids/ […]

Liars lie – More lack of Transparency

By:  Diane Benjamin I really hope the Bloomington City Council realizes how foolish they were tolerating David Hales management of the City for over 8 years.  Keep in mind they heaped praise on him and lavish raises while Council meetings dragged on and on with little being accomplished. Last night’s Council meeting was 45 minutes […]
