    As for where you live, you need to make a lot more money to even survive in Illinois. Glad you like your state, someone has to.
    Actually, I don't have to worry about my state at all. We're good. But thanks for your concern. Chicago math? No such thing. We actually do pretty well with math and science here. Reading, too. You can have Cat. Nobody here is worried about it. Glad to see them go. 3 months working, three months laid off is no way to live. Enjoy your little plant, but I wouldn't go to work there unless you want unemployment 6 months out of every year.

    Trust me, I know. Peoria is only 50 mi. from where I grew up. Know a lot of folks that worked there over the years. Personally, I'm just happy they stayed in the US (for now), which is the difference between you and I. I support the United States. You support Texico and your own bellies.

    Sounds like you want higher taxes and a 20 billion dollar budget gap so we can be like other large states in the nation. You are right, we don't have a state income tax cut we do have property taxes and sales taxes. Thousands of new jobs moving to TX increases the tax base of the state, they buy things including homes.

    You seem so miserable here, why don't you move?

    LOL, by what standards? Budget deficit, state debt, tax rates, unemployment? You really don't seem to know what is going on in your state. Apparently a lot more people disagreed with you at the Nov 2 elections. How is that hope and change working out for you?

    years ago leftwingers mainly wanted to comfort the afflicted-sometimes for altruistic reasons, sometimes to gain votes but that was their main ambition. If that mean afflicting the comfortable they could live with that but that wasn't their main goal. now many on the left are nothing more than spiteful losers who want to inflict misery on others.

    Let's see, your unemployment rate is over a point higher than TX and your budget deficit is 15 billion dollars for this year alone. Is that how you define success?

    Illinois state budget - Sunshine Review


    Illinois' financial situation is worse than any other state in the country according to a study by the National Conference of State Legislatures. The state ended Fiscal Year 2010 in worse shape than any other state (the state’s general fund balance was the lowest it has ever been at negative $4.7 billion[2]) and the state's budget situation has been called "tenuous at best."[3]

    Just goes to show we have another individual here who doesn't understand what is going on in their own state.

    Turtle - my Christmas wish for you is that Santa brings you some new ideas. These old ones are simply played out.

    I wasn't even responding to you, you cannot help it-you keep humping my leg and claiming I am repetitive when you do the same thing.

    that is a new concept on this thread-if you disagree with it feel to do so but stop cluttering up threads with your turtle fixation

    Problem with many liberals is that they don't know how to disgree with anything presented other than with personal attacks and feelings. I have yet to see any liberal post non partisan data to support their point of view but they certainly have no problem telling others that their data is wrong. Just once I want a liberal to support their claim with verifiable facts. Not going to happen.

    They call people selfish for tiring of being taxed and taxed and taxed but deny being selfish or greedy despite demanding others pay for them or buy their politicians votes.

    This leg humping thing of yours borders on a very unhealthy sexual fetish. And speaks volumes about the way you think.
