sr255 sounds like a cheap joke.
Does sen.D,syverson not have anything better to do. Why waste tax payers dollars on something as stupied as this. PLEASE WILL SOMEBODY call for a separation of Illinois,a northern Illinois and a southern Illinois.
Next he will want to put a 50 foot robot of Rick Nielsen shooting lasers in the street to detour crime of course.

Yep, your tax dollars at work. How many hungry kids could have been fed with the money they spent on this folly? Guess it means they're finished taking care of the peoples business for the year.

I say we deduct this glad-handing from their paychecks.

YEs, feeding kids is important to the Socialist Republic of Illinois. Here is a better idea...why don't people like you get a job?

Yep, thank goodness for the Democrats that run the state!

BTW... I have over 30 years of gainful employment under my belt and am comfortably retired now, and I haven't even started getting my SS checks yet!

How's things with you?
