Illinois you have arrived! Bloomberg has declared the dysfunction capital of the U.S. has moved to Illinois. Of course they are just feeding the perception that Moonbeam Browns prop 30 taxes, the golfer friendly ones, are balancing Californias budget.
I suggest Bloomberg writers visit both states more often to see the dysfunction in person. It is quite a sight to behold. However it is easier just to stay out east and watch Illinois gift to the nation, Barack Obama.
Whats the first thing popping into your mind when you read, years of gridlock and mismanagement have produced .? Illinois or DC? Both and we have learned why. Barack Obama shared the news with us at his second inauguration.
Having lived in Illinois among the liberals for over thirty years, please allow me to translate what Obama was really saying. You may have noticed from Obamas first term one makes quite a mistake listening to and believing they know what Obama means when he speaks. We learned youll be better off just watching what he does.
After sounding all supportive of the principles in the Declaration of Independence, followed by a brief history regarding how things change over time, Obama set you up for the roper dope: For we have always understood that when times change, so must we, that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges, that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action.
Translated; that old document is about dust, do as we say, we know all the answers therefore surrender your individual identity to the collective and well tell you what freedoms you can enjoy. Although Chris Matthews has visions of Lincoln when he heard this speech, I drive past the Lincoln Museum and Presidential Library almost daily. Obama isnt any Lincoln.
This is merely liberal speak for; we have taxed and spent all we can the old fashioned way, now we have to try something new. Or as Chuckie Schumer said more clearly, oh well write a budget alright and its going to contain lots of new revenue (taxes) and Republicans better get used to it.
In fact Obama isnt Reagan either as the media went nuts reporting the obvious. As Reagan is conservative, Obama is progressive. In reality the one thing Obama shares with Reagan? The same number of people participating in the workforce as 1981.
No matter how a liberal says it, their goals never change. Bigger government, higher taxes, more spending, all to save the children. Or environment, or elderly, or veterans, whatever victim of the week needs rescued, which in turn their media owned outlets report.
How does one come by these psychic powers? Do the names Blagojevich, Quinn, Durbin, Emmanuel, (Bobby) Rush, Rostenkowsky, Schakowsky, Daley (xs 3), or Obama ring a bell? Live over thirty years along side liberals with these pedigrees, with at least one eye and ear open and its amazing what you can learn.
What caused Bloombergs attention to be drawn to Illinois? Judy BaarTopinka the state comptroller just released a report, not only is Illinois behind $9 billion in back bills, seems the budget wonks at the Statehouse passed a budget $1 billion short of what is needed to make it through the fiscal year. DCFS is short $25 million to save the children, workers compensation is short $82 million, but the biggie; state group health insurance needs $900 million more to meet expenses this year.
Holy sack of liberalism! Wasnt that free Obamacare going to save all of us? Everyone was going to have insurance, the doctor of their choice, the same coverage as what congress has, and it was all going to save trillions of dollars! How can the state possibly be short? Quinn needs a red phone on his desk directly to the oval office if this keeps up.
As an honorary citizen of Illinois, having duly listened to the inaugural speech with the unique ability to hear what mere mortals cannot, watching the slow motion collapse of Illinois budget and economy, one that will soon follow to all the land due to Illinois favorite son of the same ideology, its time for the Democratic Party to develop a new response to these new challenges to keep with the fidelity to the Democratic principles.
Time to drop Democratic and replace with Collectivist in honor of Obamas second term and pronouncements in his inaugural speech.
The Collectivist Party.
ILLINOIS...where the politicians make your license plates.
The disgusting thing about Romney’s campaign is that he had Cook County Illinois as a readymade platform to destroy Obama. Obama’s economics is essentially Cook County economics.
The county is crumbling, corrupt and politically crass. A perfect backdrop for what Obama is doing to the country. It’s Balkanized and bigoted to the nth degree.
Why are we just learning this after the second inauguration of the One?
