#Liberalism and high taxes

Joel Schurtz lived all across the U.S. before coming to Illinois. He took promising job opportunities where he could find them, from California to Alabama. His wife, Michelle, and their three young children would follow.
“Our family always had a plan,” Joel said. “We had three- to five-year goals and a plan. But when we came to Illinois that plan went out the window.”

Maybe the Dems should just send the Mafia door-to-door with brass knuckles, shaking down property owners directly like they did in the old days.

Have you not been paying attention? Those laws are getting repealed. Slowly but surely.


Really? Which of federal labor protection laws have been repealed recently?

this just reminds us that government first and foremost protects itself, not the taxpayers who they treat as slaves. why such high taxes? to pay government salaries and expenses. Hell most of us out here wouldn't even know if state government disappeared one day, there is nothing they can do for us with our money that we can't do ourselves better.

Everything in Illinois is over budget and behind schedule - except Chicagos murder rate.

Criminals have the best work ethics. They get the job done without complaining. They also help us by killing other criminals.
If we offered a $10,000 reward for each criminal killed, we would not need law enforcement.
