Oath of office – on video

By:  Diane Benjamin Just so there is a record, since the City of Bloomington didn’t live stream or archive video of the candidates being sworn in, a reader taped Carrillo and Crabill. They did take an oath to support the Constitution.  I wonder if they know the word “democracy” is not in it?   Below […]

TWO FOIA fails in two weeks

By:  Diane Benjamin Almost every FOIA I file gets extended.  The law says they have to comply within 5 business days, but they can request a 5 day extension.  When 10 business days are given, it should be enough time to get it right. Eventually it isn’t. On November 20th I made this request: I […]

Which Path?

by Diane Benjamin It’s impossible to believe slightly over half of America voted for free stuff.  High gas prices are the new normal, high electricity rates will follow with the war on coal, high unemployment will go even higher as businesses refuse to hire because of ObamaCare and over regulation.  Hope your free contraceptives make up the […]

Right vrs Left

The GOP is awful at messaging and almost completely unwilling. to say what they mean, maybe because their words are consistently twisted by the left for political gain.  An actual conversation between the 2 sides is now impossible.  The left will always have a message, even if they have to make it up.  Example:  The […]
