Right Track - Chicago Politics

My friend Bob sent me this interesting data abaout Chicago.  It was coupled with the affairs in Oklahoma, but we'll look at that next week.
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: Rahm  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! ·
Let us get ALL the facts out while we are at it:
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  prison.

He was replaced by  Rob Blagojevich who is,  that's right, also in prison.

And Representative Jesse  Jackson Jr. resigned, .. and that's right, he and his  wife both are in prison also.

The  Land of Lincoln , where our  Governors and Representatives make our license plates.  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  great example of a Democratic empire…

  1. Nice try, except that Mark Kirk, the OTHER Illinois senator, is Republican. I know you aren't from here, but each state DOES get TWO senators. Also, 1/3 of the 18 Illinois reps of the House of Representatives are Republicans. There are PLENTY of Republicans who are in jail, too. So nice try with the half-truths and full blown lies.
