There are good schools in Geneva, Naperville, St Charles, etc....but the taxes are outrageous. 10k a year on a 3000 sq foot house. I have less and less tolerance for the brutal winters so i would love to move to Virginia, Texas or Florida. There are still a good amount of jobs but I don’t know how much longer they can survive the tax factory that is Illinois. I have no idea how Quinn got re-elected
And you are correct, despite any marital differences the kids should and always will come first. I can’t believe how many divorced couples use the kids as pawns.
Enquiring minds want to know:
Catalytic fines extremely hard and abrasive particles of aluminium silicate found in fuel as a result of its use as catalyst in crude oil refineries employing catalytic cracking process; can cause excessive wear in engine parts
As Michael Savage says, "liberalism is a mental illness". It is apparently true. These people are mentally ill and just can't change. If they weren't, then they would understand why Mass. is such a sh***y place and not try to replicate it where ever they move to.
By the way, I moved from the south shore of Boston to the Deep, Deep South in the mid 1970's. Only go back for weddings, funerals, and to visit relatives. New Hampshire (or as my kids call it, "New Hampster" is a really nice place, at least for now.
Blue Island was a Polish/Italian neighborhood. The two Catholic churches there tell the story. One Parish was Polish (St. Isidore), one Italian (St. Donatus). I have terrific memories of walking uptown to go shopping with my buscia. It was a nice, safe, well kept up neighborhood. Now you get ticketed for parking on the street without a permit. My buscia still lives there.

CHICAGO (WLS) - President Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois lost more jobs during the month of July than any other state in the nation, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report.
After losing 7,200 jobs during the month of June, Illinois lost more than 24,000 jobs in July.
LISTEN: Illinois Policy Institute’s John Tillman joins Don Wade and Roma
John Tillman, CEO of the Illinois Policy Institute, joined WLS Radio’s Don Wade and Roma Show Tuesday where he says Illinois’ neighbors are gaining the jobs Illinois is shedding.
“Indiana, next door, is picking up another couple hundred jobs. They’re plus 10,000. Kentucky’s plus 24,000. Missouri’s plus 39,000. So, this has all happened since the tax hike as we, and many others including you on your program regularly, predicted,” Tillman said.
I’m always glad to see Illinoise lose jobs, but when we consider 240 jobs huge were all in deep doo-doo ...
The only problem was that picture was in “color” but due to all the pollution it’s all covered in soot ...
That doesn’t look like a world I really want to live in ...

Appears to be Hobson's Choice: Live a tad dirty and have spending money or frolic in a Service environment and have little.
They are punishing themselves although over a period of time. Eventually what’s a socialist to do when you have no revenue coming in because all the businesses and working people are going to leave them, and they can’t continue to fund their vote buying programs.
Sad part is some of the workers bring their parasitic behavior and self immolating ways with them and then try to “civilize” us locals and thus in turn plant the seeds for their new digs eventual demise.
Thanks for the info. I never know if liberals honestly think their tax policies work or if they’re just so power-hungry they don’t care.
not huge business...... 250 is small
From the “city of the broad shoulders.”
You hit all the nails squarely on the head Leni. It’s such a shame that Chicago rules the entire state.
My advice as someone who lived there 19 looooong years, is GET OUT. Do it now. The stinking RATS will never let go of the Chicago voter/croney power machine, even if those voters were inclined to try to go another direction, which mostly they are not.
We went to Chicago briefly in March for a 2 days business trip and I was so much reminded of the liberalism that lives there. And how glad I no longer do. Praise and Thanks be to God.
We used to have a friend that ran a pizza joint in Blue Island. He made fantastic pizza and served it up free once a month to those of us who came to music-jam at this place.
I was always glad this was an afternoon deal....no dark streets to drive down in BI.
Then our friend sold that place, the pizza wasn’t nearly as good and the new owners weren’t interested in promoting music enjoyment so the thing ended. Fun while it lasted though.
You are wise... see post 15.
