Jon Daniel, angry young man, and Jim Ardis, mayor of Peoria. (The mayor's photo is on the right, if you couldn't tell.)

Mayor Ardis, in my opinion you need a swift kick in the ass, for wasting tax payers money for yourRead More own Gestapo Police Action. I have forwarded the Tweet to several hundred people and we want this baby to go viral... so hang that one where the sun don't shine.

Last time I checked, slander and libel were civil cases that didn't involve police raids.

Glad to see this is getting national attention- these petty bureaucrats and their taxpayer-fundedRead More goon squads and corrupt judges need to wake up to the reality that they have lit a fuse that cannot be extinguished

Thanks for the opinion compliment. I think part of the problem is that much of Hwy 11 is stillRead More configured as a local road and not a primary east-west artery that carries a decent amount of commercial truck traffic, which can make turning a challenge where there isn't a designated turn lane. And as the area continues to grow, congestion will just get worse. So, all that to say, yes, I think this project is worthwhile.

Too bad it will not start until 2016. It would solve problems like turn lanes for Farm & Fleet,Read More Wal-Mart, Milaeger's, and the other shopping areas. It would also eliminate the crowding in the railroad underpass and open the bridge area. This project to 5 years too late.
Heather Asiyanbi (Editor) November 18, 2011 at 10:48 pm
@Dennis - I agree this project needs to get moving. Traffic flow as populations increase andRead More (hopefully) companies grow have to get addressed.

Tom, thank you for your service to our country. A country which was founded on the pursuit ofRead More religious freedoms. But when you write a sentence as this "What does bother me is the fact that this country gives a free pass to belief in bs like religion'', then I have to wonder about your patriotism. Maybe it was a poor choice of words by you which caused a poor choice of words by me. Your aversion to the current tax codes for many religions is one thing but your aversion to people believing in religion as a whole IS un-American. Once again thank you for your service. PS I hope that answers your ? also Lyle

@TIM S.....Whoa Horse! I think you need a short history lesson. The American Colonies were notRead More founded on religious freedom but for economic pursuits. Religion was carried here by those people who came here to pursue the economic opportunities of their sponsors. Now what motivated people to leave their ancestral homes might very well be religious. Groups like the Puritans were outcasts because of their opposition to the Church of England and getting away was a way of survival. In the beginning each of the colonies had an official state religion that was supported by the colonial government. Roger Williams who founded Rhode Island was banished from Massachusetts Bay Colony because he resisted the religion requirements . The current view of religious freedom didn't enter into the discussion until after the Age of Enlightenment. All through our history as a republic, religion and religious belief has been very fluid and personal. The nation's religiosity has not been consistent and has waxed and waned over time. Never has religion been a prerequisite for citizenship. To claim that to be non religious is non American is is just untrue. I think what you were maybe trying to say is that someone who is religious is a better American, but that is also a fallacy. :: Let me give you a little quiz. Rate which religious beliefs are more American in order: Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Jew, Agnostic, Evangelical Christian, Wicca, Satanist, Naturist.

This Democrat also believes the 9/11 disaster was exploited, or worse, engineered to allow forRead More passage of the Patriot Act. Remember, Biden wrote the core Patriot Act prior or post Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing. Adopted by Bush With the only objector being WI Senator Russ Finegold. And, isn't the federal reserve a private independent financial institution where as the US Treasuary is Government? Nuitari, Mother Jones has her facts mixed I suspect the producer is his California based brother.

obama is so small and vindictive that he went out of his way to close the WW2 Memorial. In fact,Read More government workers went out of their way to barricade it! The Camp David golf course remains open. the great uniter, yeah.
