With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.

Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...

If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!

wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!

Great idea. Let's ban tobacco and legalize marijuana. Makes sense to me!

To all the people making the, "But they also sell alcohol!" argument. You must not beRead More aware that alcohol kills only a small fraction of people when compared to tobacco. According to the CDC, excessive alcohol consumption (key-word being excessive) leads to 88,000 deaths annually; while tobacco is responsible for 480,000 (almost a half-million) deaths annually. Furthermore, alcohol can be safely consumed in moderation without a large risk of addiction or cancer. In fact, alcohol (especially red wine) has health benefits. Tobacco has not one single health benefit and the most common outcome of consuming it is addiction, chronic illness, and shortened life expectancy. Tobacco companies profit off addiction. So please, take your uneducated comparisons elsewhere.
Greg Alan March 24, 2014 at 09:48 am
Not arguing here, about the facts of tobacco, and how it kills people. Not comparing alcohol, toRead More tobacco, & which 'drug' kills MORE people. People make CHOICES to buy these items. People also choose to drink irresponsibly, and kill, injure, & affect families, when they choose to DRINK & DRIVE! Smokers affect their own health! Which is more evil? I agree with Tony!

You can saw you work with reputable "Breeders" but they are just a front for the puppyRead More mill, especially in Iowa. I bought a puppy 2 actually, and 1 was crossbread and cost me a fortune. That was 17 years ago.

ChiCubs1, no matter what the situation is, true or not, racist ranting should never be a solution.Read More No one should feel welcomed in this neighborhood with people like you. Ask anyone in Chicago what race they think is predominant on the South Side. They will most likely say black. Beverly is a hidden subset of the South Side, with mainly whites, but blacks as well. You and your buddy at McNally's can go stand up for your racist beliefs with a glass of beer, but based on your comment you're probably drunk already.
ChiCubs1 February 27, 2014 at 07:46 am
Gerard - Have you ever been on Western Ave or in Beverly/Mt. Greenwood - it is predominantly SouthRead More Side Irish white folks (and cops/firefighters if you want to get technical). Yes, a part of Beverly is mainly black but as far as the remainder, it's all white and needs to stay that way. Most people who grew up on the south side will agree with me.

I agree . They have destroyed every good neighborhood they have got their hands on .
