The people involved with the Wall Street protests are getting bad publicity. However, big industry, banking and government have had a big part in our depression/recession. An example is the electric industry. Electricity goes out and is not reliable. So check back on your electric bill as far back as January 2011 under section taxes and others and you are already paying for the smart meter program that was just approved recently by the Legislature. Now your Democratic, supposedly anti-big business A.J. Wilhelmi is supporting additional legislation to modernize electric service with supposed help to needy customers and supposed cuts in profits by the electric company. What a bunch of baloney.

What a wonderful job of patching on Black Road in Joliet. I think Stevie Wonder could have done a better job.
Stop the surrender
of U.S.’s sovereignty
Behind the locked doors of the State Department, Hillary Clinton and a small group of devoted followers are pursuing initiatives that will surrender America’s national sovereignty to the United Nations. It will change America to a one-world government. Call your elected congressperson and have them support House Bill 1146 that will stop this.
with Voting Rights Act
Democracy works best when everyone is a participant. So why are some states tampering with the Voting Rights Act? Is this an attempt to disenfranchise millions of qualified voters? We had something like this once before in U.S. history. It was called the Jim Crow era.

Aisha’s the friendliest restaurant in Joliet
Of the more than 50 Joliet area restaurants we have dined in the last 40 years, Aisha’s is the friendliest. It is a Southern-style cuisine carry-out in a strip mall with few chairs. The food is absolutely fantastic. The owner cut the meat off the bone of the pork chops and checked on our salt and pepper tastes. Imagine a restaurant that really wants the input of first, but definitely not the last, timers.
