Pride comes before the fall

By:  Diane Benjamin Yes, during a City Council meeting in both cities: Segments of government have been trying to remove religion from society for many decades.  Remember what the wall says at the History Museum?

Nikita: Lying in Church

By:  Diane Benjamin If breaking the law by campaigning in churches isn’t bad enough, Nikita Richards must think congregations will fall for anything – including lies.

Pics from TODAY

By:  Diane Benjamin I thought it would be fun this morning to see how long it took to find bulk garbage on the curb in Bloomington.  Remember, residents only get pickups twice a year now.  Instead of going near downtown (where I heard the garbage piles are everywhere) I went just a few blocks west […]

Durbin risks eternity for DNC

By:  Diane Benjamin I’ve been waiting for the press to notice, evidently they don’t care. Senator Dick Durbin is a member of a Catholic church in Springfield.  He has been banned by the Diocese of Springfield from taking communion for his failure to protect unborn life. Evidently church teachings do matter! A vote was taken […]

Elect Hauman? WHY?

By:  Diane Benjamin Below is a brief recap of things I’ve written about previously: Comprehensive City Manger reports are no longer issued because Hauman thinks they are a waste of money.  Now citizens have no idea how tax receipts are trending.  See email HERE  This email also sounds like she doesn’t care about speakers at […]

Nothing worse than lies

By:  Diane Benjamin Bloomington’s illustrious Mayor Renner was interviewed on WJBC yesterday.  Hear it here: Credit goes to Scott Laughlin for calling Renner out on the budget task force sham since all we’ve seen are massive tax and spending proposals ever since.  But, it’s only another $20,000,000.  If the population is still anywhere near […]

Public Comment-the only interesting part

By:  Diane Benjamin The Bloomington City Council meeting didn’t have much on the agenda last night.  That usually means they are preparing big things for the next meeting.  Your wallet isn’t safe.

Freedom of Worship? Really? Update

By:  Diane Benjamin I came across an interesting article today about Bloomington.  It claims Bloomington, not Bloomington-Normal or McLean County, is in the top 10 small cities for educated millenials.  With 2 colleges and a major employer like State Farm, it probably is.  (Even if State Farm is moving jobs out). The article notes 40 […]

Something you probably didn’t know

By:  Diane Benjamin Christians are constantly attacked.  Some are afraid to speak up anymore.  It’s time to stop acting like a minority where forces want us mentioning God in churches only. I found this in a magazine.  Gallup reported the same results in 2012.   Funny how the same forces attacking Christians attack Jews.  That […]

Public Prayer – GASP! oh the horror!

by Diane Benjamin Did you know the Constitution was written in secret?  The attendees were charged with NOT discussing any part of the deliberations until the document was complete.  Oh, and when they got stuck and couldn’t reach an agreement – they PRAYED.  This were men representing different states who had different religions.  Back in […]
