Voting for Democrats costs you money!

By: Diane Benjamin It should be obvious, but evidently too many people think government needs your money, so they vote democrat. How many tax increases does the State of Illinois have to hand you before you figure out government is working for itself – NOT YOU? Illinois Democrats have no intention of fixing the unaffordable […]

Early Voting starts tomorrow. DON’T!

by: Diane Benjamin In my opinion voting in September for an election in November is lamebrained, dim-witted, and unintelligent. There will be “October surprises”, the presidential debates don’t even start until next week. The ONLY reason to vote now is to pretend you investigated all the candidates and have determined which ones represent your values. […]

Turning McLean County Blue

By:  Diane Benjamin Even the democrats know Joe Biden is not inspiring anybody.  When he does come out of his basement he speaks incoherently.  He’s been in DC for 50 years and now claims he can fix all the countries problems that he has ignored for 5 decades, 8 years as vice-president.  The party is […]

Fake News

By:  Diane Benjamin This story could go 1000 different ways.  Most readers here know Fake News when they see it. The local media doesn’t. This morning two women on a local radio station were discussing how distressing it is to be called Fake News since they are in the media. A month or so ago […]

Know what a Stonewall Democrat is?

By:  Diane Benjamin Before I answer that question, local democrats and independents need to know the local democrat party is following the same course as the national party – moving so far left it’s difficult to see them as anything but socialists veering straight toward communism Keep in mind, Illinois People’s Action was the group […]

Democrats spamming voters

By:  Diane Benjamin If you requested a ballot by mail, you are on a list that by law is laying on the counter at the County Clerk’s office.  I asked BEC what they do and got this response: The local Democrat Party is using that information to spam voters!  Even though phone numbers are NOT […]

Is David Sage lonely?

By:  Diane Benjamin The entire Council came to last night’s Committee of the Whole meeting with plans to put citizens in charge of the police force – except David Sage.  Maybe he didn’t get invited to the lunches and private meetings everybody on the Council obviously was treated to.  I wonder if Chief Heffner already […]

The MISSING Minutes

Were these minutes ever approved by the Council?  By:  Diane Benjamin On February 20, 2015, the Bloomington City Council held a special meeting to CENSURE Tari Renner for his vile comments made on this site. The minutes have been missing ever since, a Freedom of Information Request had to be sent to obtain them.  Luckily, […]

Renner’s ethics

By:  Diane Benjamin Besides Tari Renner, you have to remember former Alderman Rob Fazzini to understand this story.  Fazzini is the guy who claimed a gas tax doesn’t raise the price of gas and he wasted tons of staff and legal time trying to get both Bloomington and Normal to sell him their garbage so […]

Heeeeeerrrrreeees Tari!

By:  Diane Benjamin Thanks to the Vidette, video exists of Tari’s speech at the NIOT Democratic rally.  Tari’s portion is less than two minutes.  They took short clips of various speakers and put them together. I have no idea what Martin Luther King had to do with this event since it was supposedly to oppose […]
