I received from my cousin today. Gives one something to chew on for a bit.
Sorry I am not creative enough to think these things up myself so I could take the credit but here it is.
Chicago.... Who Runs it?
Senators: Barack Obama & Dick Durbin
Representative: Jesse Jackson, Jr.
Illinois Governor: Rod Blogojevich (arrested last week)
Illinois House leader: Mike Madigan
Illinois Attorney General: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Chicago Mayor: Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J. Daley)
The leadership in Illinois ?... All Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .
Body count in the last six months:
292 killed (murdered) in Chicago
221 killed in Iraq
State pension fund - $44 Billion in debt, worst in the country.
Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax - 10.25% highest in country. (Look it up).
Chicago school system - rated one of the worst in the country.
Of course, they're all blaming each other. They can't blame Republicans though, because there aren't any.
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he's going to '"fix" Washington politics for us?
Good luck and may God help us.
