    A wonderful state with ZERO Republicans - The State of Illinois
    Some interesting data on the 'state' of Illinois...
    There are more people on welfare in Illinois -- than there are people working.

    Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year.
    Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?
    Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better.
    Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?
    Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago. and only 221 killed in Iraq -- AND -- Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
    Here's the Chicago chain of command:
    President: Barack Hussein Obama
    Senator: Dick Durbin
    House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
    Governor: Pat Quinn
    House leader: Mike Madigan
    Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
    Mayor: Rohm Emanuel
    The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
    Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.
    Of course, they're all blaming each other.
    Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.

    Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

    Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
    Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us?

    George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the prison.
    He was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is that's right, also in the prison.
    And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of months ago, because he is fighting to not be sent to...that's right, prison.
    .The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.
    But you know what?
    As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

    My image posting solution was to go to Southern Star Hosting, to register the domain of for less than $10, and hosting for less than $5 a month. I then installed the Free Application Zen Photo with one click from my Control Panel. I have tens of thousands of my photo digitized, which in time I'll upload there to preserve from disaster, and access from anywhere. In the meantime it makes for a great place to host my forum photos - plus I can still install 24 more free applications on that site if I cared to.

    I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. After I got married we moved to northern Wisconsin, and I never regretted the move. That place has been a cesspool of political influence for a long time.

      DC (& the country, for that matter) has been overtaken by Illinois politics. We're screwed...
