This is what my business is like

I stood up for ethics. Where were you?!?!?

More of the same political BS.

Furthermore, the state budget office would be fired from every corporation if they produced quarterly reports like the ones here: http://www.state.il.us/budget/qfr.asp
There is absolutely nothing of value in those reports. They are a sales job to defend more taxes. Why don’t you stand up for transparency in government? Why don’t you stand up against pension abuse? Why don’t you stand up against urban sprawl which figures into the $13B out of $20B in the capital budget being proposed.

Julie Hamos sent me this email:
Dear John,
Thank you for signing our petition calling for campaign contribution caps in Illinois. It is time for action – and we need your voice to be heard.
If you have not already, please contact your state legislator today and encourage them to support campaign contribution caps at $2,400.
Please stay in touch - I read every email message.
Sincerely,

Trailblazer of Corruption

Burris is going to go down soon! If there is a single person with ethics left in government we have a shot. Oh, never mind.

BURRIS ON TAPE: "If I do get appointed, that means I bought it."

More corrupt Chicago aldermen

Alderman Burke is arguably the most corrupt of all of the aldermen based on what's in this article. He has his own parking zone? WTF?

Cook County commissioners are idiots

"I looked at my community, and I looked at theirs, and I compared the two," said Commissioner Deborah Sims (D-Chicago), referring to her Republican colleagues. "We don't have any businesses in my community to leave." -- Gee Deb, could it be that you don't have any businesses because you mismanaged government at every turn? IDIOT!
