I was just listening about the profit losses of Macy's.
I haven't been to a mall in years. I may go to one store if I NEED
something, but I can't tell you the last time I went to a mall to window
shop for things I didn't need.
These stores are filled with SO MUCH crap (most from China)! I often wonder who is buying it. So I ask this question...
When is that last time you went to a mall and shopped 'til you dropped?
How do these places survive?
Illinois is facing an important election this November and I am vetting some candidates. On the Illinois ballot this year we have:
GOVERNOR AND LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR
SECRETARY OF STATE
UNITED STATES SENATOR (Dick Durbin's seat)
Not to mention the judges,congressional representatives, and questions:
STATEWIDE ADVISORY QUESTION
“Shall the minimum wage in Illinois for adults over the age of 18 be raised to $10 per hour by January 1, 2015?”
My brother is having some financial / employment issues, so I thought I would connect with any DPer's in the area that might have ideas or contacts that could help.
I got the following e-mail from the Libertarian National Campaign Committee describing how the GOP of Illinois is trying to stop voters from having the option to vote for Libertarian candidates.
What kind of campaign strategy relies on cheating the voters? Anybody familiar with this tactic?
Either they despise the voters, or their gubernatorial candidate doesn't care about anything beyond his own campaign, because I would imagine Libertarians in Illinois will remember this and never vote for a Republican, again, even in those races where no Libertarian is running. How is that a good idea?
Here's the letter:
The Illinois Republican party, and their billionaire gubernatorial candidate, have declared war on Libertarian candidates.
Two animal rights activists who allegedly released thousands of animals from a mink farm about sixty-five miles southwest of Chicago have been indicted on federal terrorism charges.
Both Tyler Lang and Kevin Johnson were indicted by a grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois for allegedly releasing 2,000 minks from captivity on August 14, 2013, and for conspiring to “damage and interfere with the operations of a fox farm in Roanoke, Illinois,” according to the Justice Department.
Chicago Inner-City Black Residents: Obama “Worst President” Ever (VIDEO)
Residents slam president for preferable treatment of illegals
by INFOWARS.COM | JULY 14, 2014
Black residents in Chicago’s inner-city neighborhoods are extremely upset with President Barack Obama and his approach to illegal immigration, reports The Gateway Pundit and RebelPursuit.com.
Trucker Brian Miner was driving through Illinois this week when he says he saw an officer of the law pass him traveling well over the posted speed limit.
He says that the officer was on his cellphone as well.
Mr. Miner, like most of us does not like the above the law, double-standard of police, so he took action by honking his horn to pull the officer over.
What happens next is an amazing transformation.

VIDEO: Cops Taser Man 18 Times Then Pounce On Family Member As He Films Incident
Incident highlights how police are attacking those who document brutality
May 26, 2014
A video of yet another brutal tasering has gone viral on the internet, also highlighting how police are increasingly targeting people who film their heavy handed actions.
This might help. Not that the FBI ever lied or fabricated their little notes. Or that there was ever pure scum posing as respectable law enforcement. A little late for all the people they executed, like that Tsarnaev buddy.

Most of the 440 members of the senior class at Oak Lawn Community High School will be busy Wednesday preparing for their graduation ceremony that evening.
But 48 members of the Class of 2014 will be nowhere near the Shannon Center on the campus of St. Xavier University in Chicago. That’s because all but one are not being allowed to graduate, and the other is banned from the ceremony.
