TO ALL GOOD DEMOCRATS, THE FOLLOWING FACTS ARE TRUE. SEE HOW YOU CAN
SPIN THEM TO MAKE YOU AND THAT PRESIDENT LOOK GOOD.
Let me introduce you all to a wonderful State with ZERO Republicans:
1. There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people
2. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the
U.S. averaging $110,000/year.
3. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can't blame that on
republicans because there aren't any.
4. 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
5. 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: Rohm Emanuel
. The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .
6. Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
7. State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
8. Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
9. George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house.
10. Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is...that's right,
also in the big house.
11. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned because he is fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.
12. The Land of Lincoln , where our governors make our license plates.
You can't blame Republicans because there are none. But you know 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. "Any man 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."
