Senator Courtney's Motivations Outted
Courtney Screams "You Piece of Sh**" In Senate Chamber
"Chelgren got things started with this: ”When you put your own personal political interests or the political interests of your party above the citizens of this country or the citizens of this state, it’s wrong. It’s not why we’re here
Senator Chelgren has discovered something some people around here have known for years. The problem is not enough know to keep from re-electing Senator Courtney.
Courtney never ceases being the cockroach.

Burlington Water Main M. I. A.
"Nothing’s official yet, but the man in charge of keeping Burlington’s water flowing says it appears that a 16-foot section of the “main” that went down two weekends ago is missing from it’s usual spot under Flint Creek
Infrastructure necessary to maintain our community appears to be going the way of Burlington's productive citizens. Where have they gone?
With a declining population, especially of productive citizens, where will the money come from repair and replace Burlington's infrastructure?
It was just stored with the missing lights from the Flint Hills ball park.
Want A Story? What Happened to The Drunk Ex-Mayor's Buger King Sleepover?
Edwards' 3rd Strike DUI Should Have Been a Topic
I guess most people have forgotten our drunk, ex-mayor Mike Edwards, a Democrat, filed for bankruptcy TWICE, including once while he was on the city council.
Our police department let Edwards call his wife for a ride home after passing out drunk in the Burger King parking lot. Edwards also was convicted of at least two DUI's. And the newspaper never even bothered to go review the audio and video from Edwards' near miss with that 3rd strike DUI.
While we're talking about ex-mayors, what about Tim Scott taking a swing at a citizen in the auditorium parking lot?
Or the theft of property from the Des Moines County Historical Society sold to fund that boondoggle library?
In fact, has anyone that works at the Hawk-eye ever filed bankruptcy?
When little people play grown-up, they are still little people in little shoes.
Watch Where You Squat!
If I were Randy Miller I would consider changing his Saturday afternoon drinking habits. One of these days Miller will pop out of the Sombrero after 3-4 hours of drinking and stumble into a DUI roadblock.
And unlike Steve Delaney, this trip will be directly to jail.
Randy Miller Bites The Hand
It never ceases to amaze me how absolutely stupid Randy Miller continues to be. Monday's front page article takes the cake. He should be so proud of his recent crayon scribbles.
This is nothing more than a hit job to protect the liberals' continued taxpayer abuse and a shot to protect the overpaid city and county workers' health care plan.
Randy Miller doesn't have anything to do but follow the mantra for the Democrat Party that he values more than his neighbors. Miller's job is to protect the city and county workers' health care plan at all costs. After all, Miller's health care is paid for by his wife's job at the court house. This may not seem relevant at first glimpse but the health care plans for both city and county come from the same pot.
To top all of this off, Randy Miller in his myopic view of the real world fails to consider, as do Dale Alison and Steve Delaney, that for a number of years these jackasses have been paid by the ad revenue from the very people he now wants to castigate. Would Delaney be willing to take ad revenue if a new business was started by these same people?
My suggestion, advertisers should carefully consider spending any money with the newspaper. You never know when your money may be used to punish you.

Cedar Rapids Casino Would "Cannibalize" Other Casinos - "How Much Is Too Much?"
Cannibal Steve Gray Casino Headed to Toilet?
"Two national consulting firms that specialize in the analysis of gambling markets conclude similarly that the proposed Cedar Rapids casino will take a significant amount of business from existing casinos
, especially its would-be nearest competitor, Riverside Casino and Golf Resort.
The firms conducted market studies independent of one another on contract with the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission to help the commission decide if it will grant the proposed Cedar Crossing casino in Cedar Rapids a state gaming license.
The five-member commission has said it is interested in two key questions: Will a Cedar Rapids increase gaming revenue in the state? And will it do it without cannibalizing too much business from existing casinos?
Marquette Advisors, with an office in Minneapolis, concluded that a Cedar Rapids casino would generate approximately $81 million in adjusted gross revenue by 2017, $59 million of which will come from the "cannibalization" of revenue from existing casinos. Of that, $25 million would come from the Riverside casino, or 27 percent of the projected revenue for it in 2017.
Union Gaming Group of Las Vegas, Nev., said the proposed Linn County casino would bring in $82 million in revenue in 2016, but $66.8 million would be cannibalized from existing Iowa casinos. Of that, $37.3 million would come from the Riverside casino, which will represent about 42.1 percent of his 2013 business."

Tom Tells Us It Ain't So
"Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Adam DeCamp said Monday that the probe aimed at identifying and prosecuting fraudulent Iowa voters ended Feb. 13, roughly 20 months after it began.
Since September, when DeCamp took over as the lead investigator, the effort has scrutinized 245 individual voters. Of those, more than 80 have been referred to county attorneys for possible prosecution
This is not true. It is all the collective hallucinations of racists trying to prevent people from voting.
It is not true because Senator Courtney has told us vote fraud is not a problem in Iowa. Senator Courtney would never permit, much less condone such fraud. Senator Courtney would never lie to us
Now, the vote fraud investigators can go look into the Aspen Grove Syndrome.
Vote Until Your Vote Right is the U. A. W. Way
"Sen. Corker's conduct was shameful and undertaken with utter disregard for the rights of the citizens of Tennessee and surrounding states that work at Volkswagen," the UAW's filing asserted
The United Auto Workers (U. A. W.) lost an election at a VW plant. Claiming outsiders were involved is the U. A. W.'s premise for another another vote. The U. A. W. wants VW workers to vote until they vote the way the U. A. W. wants.
The U. A. W. is mad at politicians who weighed in on their organizing attempt. When it comes to politicians doing so, where is the U. A. W.'s outrage when it comes to State Senator Courtney

Obama's FCC Ministry of Propaganda Survey to Shut Down Dissident News Outlets
Obama's Fascist FCC is headed your way right after a stop on South Main Street at the Ad Vertiser with their Gestapo questionnaire for Mike Sweet, Dale Alison and Randy Miller
"Surveys will be distributed to reporters, news editors, assignment editors, publishers, owners, on-air reporters, film editors and other station or newspaper staff. These are the questions they will ask:
–What is the news philosophy of the station?
–Who else in your market provides news?
–Who are your main competitors?
–Is the news produced in-house or is it provided by an outside source?
–Do you employ news people?
–How many reporters and editors do you employ?
–Do you have any reporters or editors assigned to topic “beats”? If so how many and what are the beats?
–Who decides which stories are covered?
–How much influence do reporters and anchors have in deciding which stories to cover? –How much does community input influence news coverage decisions?
–How do you define critical information that the community needs?
–How do you ensure the community gets this critical information? On-Air Staff? Reporters? Anchors?
–How much news does your station air every day?
–Have you ever suggested coverage of what you consider a story with critical information for your customers (viewers, listeners, readers) that was rejected by management? If so, can you give an example? What was the reason given for the decision? Why do you disagree?"
Web traffic follows over FCC controlled networks. Has a survey shown up yet in your mailbox?

U. A. W. Whacked At Battle of Chattanooga
Smoke & Debris Seen From Lookout Mountain
"The bullies failed. Assembly-line workers at the Volkswagen assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., told the United Auto Workers last week to take an outbound Chattanooga choo-choo back to Detroit
Tennesseans seem no more interested in importing the union that destroyed Detroit than they are in sharing their paychecks with the union, which is now on the hunt for someone to blame for the expensive disaster."
The United Auto Workers Union is in serious decline. Membership is down nationwide and locally from half a century ago. VW Chattanooga was just another example of workers rejecting U. A. W.'s attempt to organize them.
The Washington Times editorial cites a major reason the United Auto Workers failed to win an organizing election
at VW. The U. A. W.'s political dominance of Detroit and its results made for graphic damnation.
The U. A. W.'s destructive influence is not limited to Detroit. Burlington shares unsettling similarities with Detroit.
Our drunk ex-mayor and State Senator Courtney crawled out of the local U. A. W. Hall. Others locally have done the U. A. W.'s bidding to get elected and re-elected.
Much of the local U. A. W.'s political clout is retirees. Attrition is changing the local political landscape. It is the same nationwide.
This does not bode well for future government bail outs of inverted pyramid union pensions. No bail outs. Enraged retirees. Game over.
Detroit has reached default. Burlington has not yet to that point declined. There is still time.
