Get rid of unions!!! They served a purpose years ago when employers took advantage of their workers. Now they just support a bunch of fatcats.

Got that right madman! It's coming, they've bled the pig as much as they can. Soon Cook County residents won't have a pot to pee in, then the unions will strike for more $$ from who? Besides, can you believe that these knuckleheads walk away from work in a deep recession? Now that's some thinking going on right there! Glad we have the best and brightest working in the trades.

Don't feel bad!
I have been there in Rosemont, IL. They were talking about building casino for 10 yrs., yeah I was hoping they be done soon but didn't.

My company left this area in 2001. I do stop in and they built Movies Theater instead of casino. I was unhappy about this.

I do visiting lot of villages.
