I'm seeing a lot of celebration about the gov't removing its appeal to prohibit Plan B One Step and while the move is a good thing, it is important to remember that the Justice Dept has no plans to remove its appeal of Judge Korman's ruling of Plan B the more affordable two-pill generic version to females under the age of seventeen.

Support Buffalo Wild Wings

by MaryIllinois

We need to support this restaurant on this day of massive wing consumption.

Apparently Buffalo Wild Wings is under attack and being boycotted because of their national stance on a no gun policy.  We purchased our wings for the game from them earlier today.  And we let them know we support their policy.


I was watching Rmoney on the local Chicago ABC affiliate news last night railing against all failed Obama efforts to grow the economy, when the reporter noted that the owner of this manufacturing firm was a Rmoney supporter but admitted that his sales have grown 80% in the last year and he has hired new workers.  

Above the din inside the Acme Industries precision parts factory, Romney repeated his claim that after three-and-a-half years of 8 percent-plus unemployment, President Obama's economic policies are not working.

"The median income of an American family is down $4,000 a year since President Obama has been president," said Romney.

Even so, Acme Industries CEO Warren Young, an ardent Romney supporter, reports the company's sales increased 80 percent in the past year, and the factory has hired new workers.

"I think that's an indication that the Obama policies are working rather than the opposite," said Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston).

You know, that failed Obama economy on small business right?
