It took until last night to connect with Dan Brady about HB 2040. See this story: https://blnnews.com/2019/05/06/illinois-gop-a-minority-on-purpose/
He told me he didn’t hear any opposition to the bill, one of the reasons he voted YES. Evidently we aren’t a Representative Republic where the elected reflect the values of the people who voted for them.
Read the whole text of the bill here: http://ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=&SessionId=108&GA=101&DocTypeId=HB&DocNum=2040&GAID=15&LegID=117547&SpecSess=&Session=
Dan does not believe this bill bans the facility Dwight agreed to pursue since that is Federal. The word “federal” is not in this bill, so I tend to agree. I did tell him I thought the bill was anti-business and it was very strange the Republicans were split on their vote. He said they usually agree and many bills in Springfield are anti-business, he claims to do what he can. I told him voting like this makes it hard to see two parties actually exist in Illinois. Dan is in GOP leadership in the House, he didn’t respond to that comment.
Illinois State University is reaping what they sow. When Marxist – Socialist – Communist professors are allowed to indoctrinate kids, it leads to letters like this one in the school newspaper: Why We Can’t Be Redbird Proud
5 students contributed. They have the far left talking points down – the support staff needs to be paid a Living Wage – $25 per hour. It doesn’t matter what the value of their labor is.
Evidently ISU is holding employees as slaves:
The kids must not know ISU employees are there only because they haven’t quit. If life was so horrible, they would. These employees might realize they aren’t going to make as much money anywhere else, get lavish benefits, and a pension if they leave. Don’t employees kids get free education too?
You created these leftists ISU, have fun dealing with them.
McLean County Democrats:
From the Local Democrats Facebook page – Killing babies is healthcare.
I wonder if euthanizing seniors and really sick people is healthcare too?
Under Canada’s socialist healthcare system it is – not enough money to take care of everybody! Medicare For All! ‘Every three hours’ someone in Canada is euthanized, report reveals
By careful around Democrats is you are pre-born, elderly, sick, or just too expensive to treat.
If you believe life in all forms is sacred, how can you be a Democrat?
Bloomington Bills and Payroll:
1) More Sick Leave Buy Back
7 more Bloomington employees are taking the money and running.
2) Connect Transit gets your money:
3) Coliseum – wonder how many payments in total?
4) Is this the same guy who was on the downtown task force? https://blnnews.com/2017/09/06/hey-bloomington-2/
This grant is named after Harriet Fuller – but it’s your money: http://www.cityblm.org/home/showdocument?id=4101
5) This company is owned by Tim and Tom Kirk:
Campaign contribution to Tari: https://www.illinoissunshine.org/committees/32320/
Tim contributed to Tari Renner’s campaign in 2013
Henson also got a check for $20,676 for Solid Waste Disposal. See PDF pages 44-48.
Didn’t these guys sell the North Main property to the City too? The one that is still generating no taxes? See the story linked above.
6) PDF page 141 and following have a bunch of Wire Transfers going back to November. It appears they were never approved, Monday night they will be without comment.
