Text Size: A | A

When a Las Vegas performer was mauled several years ago by one of the tigers in his magic act, comedian Chris Rock said of the incident, "That tiger didn't go crazy. That tiger went tiger." When it comes to the revelations regarding the Moreland Commission and Gov.

The state of affairs in NY State policitcs is a huge embarrassment. The state is going down the tubes, and we continue to elect people that are at worst criminals, and at best corrupt, and we wonder why we are where we are. Cuomo is a thug, and an embarrassment. He's an excellent example of the fact that we got the government we elected, not the one we need.

Does this sound familiar? Its us in a few years.

"A State with No Republicans!"
Some interesting data on the 'state' of, 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.. Their average pay is $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 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, by the way, also in prison.

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

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 bankrupt 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
