Give Thanks to the Federal Govt. and Piss on Illinois…

The Covid 19 economic shutdown destroyed my businesses. That said, I still never thought I would say “thank you” to the Federal Government. But were it not for the Federal Government’s stimulus check, extended unemployment benefits and the additional $600/week unemployment benefits I could not have survived. And while I know our debt bomb has grown at least $3,000,000,000,000,000, Trump had no choice. The economy simply had to have an infusion of cash.

Now let me say “piss on Illinois”. This State has to be among the worst States by every measure. First they were pathetically slow at getting the Federal Government’s unemployment money out to citizens in dire need. All this State had to do was pass out the cash… and they couldn’t even do that on a timely basis. But I think what pisses me off the most is that checks were 48 hours late any time there was a holiday.

Let me explain. Memorial Day was Monday the 26th of May and was a holiday for most everyone in State Government. For me, life and bills go on with or without me regardless of holidays. That means I still have to pay the mortgage and groceries and on and on she goes. In order to do that money has to arrive in my bank account on certain dates or I miss bills. Not unusual…. just like everyone else in this Country for the most part.

Well Wednesday the 28th comes along which is my day for my Federal money and much to my surprise NOTHING. Oh shit something has happened I thought. Now what? I suppose Illinois has some issue preventing them from getting the checks out.

Guess what? Illinois did have an issue. Turns out because Monday the 26th was a holiday, and the poor pitiful way overpaid government workers were off, they didn’t send checks out for 48 hours. I mean it’s only reasonable to think that since workers had Monday off, that the checks would be delayed. We peons in the masses should be happy we are even getting checks is seemingly the mantra.

Well I am here to tell you government dweebs, there’s absolutely no excuse for my check to go out 48 hours late. I bet your fuckin check didn’t go out 48 hours late. Why would you think it’s okay for mine to be late. If you have to work 24 hours a day until you are caught up because you took one holiday out of your egregious 15 holidays, that’s the price you pay to be MY employee. You need to learn who is really paying your bills and it’s not the State of Illinois.

The Mass Exodus From Illinois Has Begun…

Highway outa Hell…

Every Illinoisan owes $11,000 for pensions with no fix in sight.

While the article below is a little dated, it still gives good perspective on this issue. Given the article was written in 2016, I have updated my information through 2019. The Tribune article takes you back to 2010 and brings you forward as to the exodus, tax implications, pension debacle, demographics of who’s moving, and of all the things the impact of red light cameras. So I recommend reading the entire article.

UPDATE

Go to website: https://www.illinoispolicy.org/illinois-saw-nations-worst-population-loss-during-the-decade/.

Read the following article it takes you back to 2010 and looks at the net loss. It actually was greater loss pre-2014.
This part of article is inconsistent with Census graph above. And has a glaring typographical error. If you’ll notice in the highlighted area it references 2015 twice when it should have referenced 2014 then 2015. Either way, the only way I can explain the 100,000 exodus in 2015 with the graph above showing 25,000 is that one is “gross” exodus and the other is “net” exodus. In other words when you subtract the new babies and new residents from the number of people that are leaving it nets out to only 25,000 total loss in population even though 100,000 people left the State. That would mean 75,000 new residents and babies arrived in Illinois to offset the 100,000 that left.
The loss of people over the last 20 years amounts to $50 billion in lost taxable income per year or about $8 billion a year in lost taxes. Enough money to balance the budget sadly enough.

Day 84 of Captivity in the Socialist States of America…

This is my initial discussion making the case for changing the use of USA to Socialist States of America or SSA… Each day of captivity, I will chronicle examples of socialist changes in our economy caused by our government. I have decided to change my personal reference of the USA to “the former USA”. From now going forward I am a captive of the SSA. As a proud American in the Reagan tradition, I pledge to defeat the socialists that now overwhelm our National and State governments. And yes we have officially entered the BIZARRO WORLD!!!

And now the NEWS!!!

Folks each day we are moving closer and closer to a European style socialist economy… don’t believe me? Okay… Rick Wagner of GM was forced out as CEO because the government, i.e. Obama didn’t think he was up to the task of running GM. Oh… you think this was a good idea. Maybe? But since when did the government have the audicity let alone right… to force a CEO out of office? Seriously. Socialism is largely defined as government ownership of the means of production. In this case not only is the government owning GM through its bailout, but it is now higher in the pecking order than GM’s Board of Directors. BOD’s have always been in charge of determining the viability of a CEO, but now the government is doing this? Sure you might say the government loaned them all this money so they now have the right to call the shots. I ask… do you really really want the government telling companies how to run their business? Seriously. Keep in mind, we (through our elected leaders i.e. the Federal government) are currently sitting on $10trillion in debt, and by the time Obama is gone, we will have another $10trillion (not my number CBO’s number)… so you think an entity that by all normal standards of accounting is bankrupt should tell others how to run their business? Come on… you know the folly of that thinking. You can come up with all kinds of “feel good” reasons why I am wrong, but you know deep down, I am right. And you also know that we are moving to a socialist type economy.

There are no winners or losers in a socialist economy… everyone is equal. Sounds good!!! WRONG… why do you think America invents everything. Because there are winners and losers in our economy!!! Take away incentives to WIN, and you lose creativity and ingenuity.

Folks even Europe is now moving away from Socialism… both France and Germany elected Conservatives meanwhile we elect a Socialist. WHAT!!! Sarkozy from France openly talks in conservitive terms… WHO WOULD EVER HAVE BELIEVED A FRENCHMAN WOULD BE CONSERVATIVE!!!! Meanwhile we move in the other direction… INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE!!!

So now my RANTINGS are going to chronicle our daily march to Obama’s socialist nirvana. This is a topic I have been dabbling with, but now… much like our Carter Hostage Crisis days where each day of captivity was chronicled by “Nightline”, I will now chronicle our Socialist Hostage Crisis.

Reporting from my underground bunker in Aurora Illinois this is Day 84 of captivity

Congress is filled with absolute JACK ASSES…

How dare Congress pretend to be outraged over AIG bonuses. They created the mess leading to the need for a bailout, they decided to bail out AIG and they didn’t even read the legislation giving AIG indemnity against clawback of the very bonuses they are now grandstanding about. Congress is a pathetic collection of the most incompetent, sanctimonious, petty jack asses ever assembled in a single room.

Congress should be embarrassed and ashamed of their juvenile and pathetic phony outrage.

These same simpleton’s in Congress chastising others, have amassed more debt in the past 90 days than has ever been recorded in world hsitory. Where do these people get off asking anyone questions about their finances or business transactions. Our current Congress has utterly no earthly idea what it is doing with the public’s trillions of tax dollars…

This chirade playing out in Washington is all political tripe… designed to obfuscate the real problem which is the unparalled ineptness of Congress and the President.

WE must impose term limits on Congress just as we do the President because Congress has now usurped from our sophomoric Teleprompter in Chief, i.e. Obama, the power of the Presidency. Obama has lost control as President; and were it not for his teleprompter, he would have nothing to say or do.

I often ponder how our citizens were so duped by Obama… after all he told all of us he was going to “change” everything and he was going change things in a dramatic leftist direction. Did our citizens not believe Obama. I did, and now my fears are playing out in living color.

And what I see in living color is that Obama has turned over the reigns of the Federal government to Congress’ most dillusional out-of-touch members i.e. Pathetic Pelosi and Retarded Reid.

So I pray Congress continues down its current path of kaos and anarchy… that will assure a clean sweep of the nit-wits currently running Congress in 2010, much as we experienced under Clinton in 1992.

WE all must do our fair share to maintain the pressure on Congress thereby ensuring irrational and “Sybil-like” actions and reactions by our Royal Morons. I have my 15 tea bags prepared to be mailed once a day from April 1st… DO YOU!!!
