    If life was fair there would be hundreds of commoners behind every sand dune armed to the teeth. This fat useless blob of protoplasm needs to be replaced

    I guess we should never underestimate the governments ability to steal more from productive citizens. Only a 5% tax rate? There's still 95% left to go. The question is who will get it first, the feds or the state?

    We take money, we pay ourselves well and when anything happens we don't want to pay. Hey it worked for the banksters.
    Every day it's becoming more and more obvious we are living in bizarro world. Up is down, right is wrong, yes means no.
    Started with credit cards in the 80's and the era of "ME". I deserve mentality.

    Hey you actually have something there. The other day the Governor announced a new plan to deal with past due bills...simply issue bonds and paay off the back bills with the proceeds.
    Now if past history is any guide we can be assured that the bond issuance firm will have various ties with some of the Ilolinois political families on both sides of the aisle, some of the funds will go to assorted current feel good vote buying programs in Chicagoland and anything left will go rto pay some of the back bills.
    They didn't mention how they were going to pay back the bonds but I am sure something will pop up...perhaps they can issue more bonds ssince it has worked so well in the past.
