    The leftist media and media and message boards like to beat up on Kansas too.

    But they leave Illinois pretty much alone. Yes?

    I can believe that.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I don't see them leaving Illinois alone, though I'm in an adjoining state and it is more prevalent locally, I'll grant that. Oh, and the rightest message boards beat up on Illinois plenty and defend Kansas, so I'm not really sure what the point is here, other than maybe pointing out petty partisanship.

    Kansas, btw, deserves every bit of shaming for what they're doing, independent of anything or anybody else. As does Illinois, too.

    Illinois, though, has been this effed up for literally decades. Maybe it's such old news that it not news at all anymore, just SOP.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I applaud your astuteness in scoring a wife significantly younger than you.

    Madigan has gone to court to block amendments on the ballot to help resolve this mess. He has an inherent conflict of interest in raising taxes, his law firm specializes in property tax abatement. He has promulgated so much power into his speakership that literally no bill goes for a vote before he approves it, committee approval or no. Madigan has entirely too much legislative power in Illinois. He is corrupt to the core.
