“A State With No Republicans!”
Tulip: I am not trying to…scare my loved Chicagoans, but I am so sorry that these information are true! No wonder why there are many many billionaires don’t send their kids to Chicago schools. The highest paid teachers with the lowest scores and achievement. Pretty much says it all about teachers unions. Oh dear my bother, you’re in a group of “the few taxpayers” (the rest of them are on welfare).
Very interesting…Note this. A US State with zero Republicans in office – The State of Illinois. Think about this.
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. 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 weeks 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.
“Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian.”
Don’t forget Detroit another good example.
Some of you might find these data interesting. ALL SHOULD.
There are actually two messages here. The first is very interesting,
but the second is absolutely astounding, and explains a lot!
