Blago BS Getting Deep

Everyone always gives George Bush a bad rap for wearing his faith on his sleeve. Hey, whatever floats your boat - we're mostly non practicing persons of indeterminate religions. Big whoop.

But Blago is really getting goofy, saying his budget that provides for the largest tax hikes in Illinois history puts him on the side of the Lord? From Channel 2:
  • The governor says he has heavenly help as he pushes for the largest increase in taxes and spending in the history of Illinois.

    As CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports, Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he is "on the side of the Lord."

    The governor called his campaign a "crusade," declaring that, as he sees it, he is on the side of God in offering Illinoisans more access to medical insurance and better schools.
How about instead of free handouts, Blago remembers that the good Lord helps those who help themselves? Taking our money and giving it out to failed social programs and failed social experiments doesn't put you anywhere near god(s), deities, or spiritual presences. It just pisses off the taxpayers.

And Channel 7 has more:
  • "We salute this budget proposal that is hitting deep pockets and we are saying to Corporate America, if you don't support the plan, we will take to the streets and we know how," said Rev. Janette Wilson, Ministers Alliance.

    Dozens of Chicago-area ministers are threatening boycotts and demonstrations if that's what it takes to convince corporations and lawmakers to support Governor Blagojevich's plan for a new tax on business revenues to raise $6 billion a year for schools and health care.

Let's see a few of these businesses move their operations out of state. Maybe even a few union shops fold up their tents and watch the governor and his cronies try to explain how they're driving high paying jobs right out of Illinois. We're bleeding jobs and money in this state and Blago is applying leeches to the wounds, sucking more blood out of the body. We are so doomed.

Economics learned from President Carter. Reward the unproductive. Punish the productive. Soon the economy will collapse and everyone will be poor...so long as the Cook County Board President and Governor's pensions are the last to be defunded, everything will be okay...

Last week at the Gym, I had occasion to speak with 2 guys both of which looked like they had found their wives doing their husbands best friends.

Both guys were told that if Blagos Tax package passes that they would be unemployeed. Both Men work decent paying factory jobs and have wives and kids.

One of the companys is moving operations to Tennessee and the other to Indiana.

I can just imagine that Illinois corporations are now looking for new places to set up business.

If Blago gets his tax hikes then he can award the contracts to his sleeze friends, like the Rezko's and the Marradans. They then can in return hire his wife as their real estate broker and make large contributions to his campaign (legal) fund.

Fitzgerald get off your ass and return some indictments!!

Gov. George Ryan thought if he pardoned all the death row inmates, he wouldn't be convicted.


Gov. Blago thinks if he gives every child, including illegal alien children, he won't be convicted.


SORRY! NOT GOING TO WORK!



P.S. Businesses don't pay taxes, people do. You can tax businesses but all they do is pass the tax to the consumer.

This is a SIX BILLION DOLLAR tax increase on all of us!

As they cut our medical benefits and also cut the retired copper insurance coverage, everyone elses benefits get better!

Is Blago nuts? He must be losing it. Why make the religious references? Does he think that justifies his actions? What a nut.

This is not bad public policy. This is pure insanity. Blago, who could not get a job managing a Starbucks, will destroy the state's economy with this tax hike. For example, a couple of years ago Boeing moved to Illinois. We won their relocation over Texas. Boeing's sales are 60 billion a year. Does ANYONE think that Boeing will pay 600 million a year to stay in Illinois? How about Cat tractor with 94,000 employees? In an era of seamless communication and supply chain management anyone can move anywhere. How about McDonalds? They could move their headquarters in a week. And they will. Anyone who wants to see what will happen should look at Michigan. Sell your house while you can. Fuck Blago. Dan

I am by no means rich. That being said, I have always wondered why there is a tax upon hard work and sucess. Realize that the rich create jobs, thus creating more tax payers. they spend more $ thus paying more sales tax, they have higher property taxes, etc. Why should their incomes and business be taxed at a higher rate, so their money can be funnel to the breeders and dope dealers. I'm so sick of living in the U.S.S.A. Peoples Republic of Illinois, Crook County.

When are we going to wake up and stop electing socialists to positions of power in this state? I for one am fed up with the policies of Commissars Blago, Durbin, Obama and Daley. The people of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Illinois are tired of being ruled by a politburo of these goofs. Blago says his tax plan will help “working class” families afford health insurance and help provide a quality education for all residents of the State of Illinois. WTF I’m sitting here paying my mortgage, writing a check for tutition of child to a Catholic HS, sending a check away to the U of Illinois for my eldest daughter (she scored 31 on her ACT but couldn’t get a scholarship because I make too much money and we all know that money had to be used for the child of some illegal mud foot) and so on and so on. I’m tired of paying for every useless dredge of society who can’t figure out how to pick up his pants, turn down his radio, speak the English language, etc. etc. etc. Screw the socialist politicians and all the do nothing, want everything, useless pieces of shit draining our economy. Health care my ass. There’s the Stroger for those who can’t afford it. They don’t want to send out their bills anyway.

Myself and the rest of CPD's disabled officers sure wish the Gov and the politicians down in Springfield would at least vote us a raise on our disability. Maybe I'll get a raise before I die. Can't wait to move out of this state sure can't afford to live here anymore.Just like everything else I wonder where the FOP is when we need them?

Remember Always this one thing,
If ANYONES taxes get raised, especially businesses, they always pass the cost of it down to the persons who can't do anything about it, and they don't think twice about it. So, if you think it's good to tax these businesses, you'll be paying more, as it gets passed down to you, the buyer, or user. If the businesses get too pissed off, they RELOCATE. Then, less jobs too, beware State of Illinois, this guy is a Wolf in Sheeps Clothing.

“…The only thing certain is that something's got to give. If nothing changes, the police and firefighter pension funds will RUN OUT of MONEY in 20 and 23 years, respectively.”

This is all fixed now, right? I can stop worrying?

Its Funny, people vote for who they think will help them the most. Blacks vote for blacks, Hispanics for Hispanics, Liberals for liberals. Democrats for Democrats and Republicans for Republicans. They do not take the time to actually see if the person voted for will help them or hurt them. This is why people like Gov Johnny haircut get elected. People do not research, just vote out of past practice. And Johnny Haircut knows that citizens have a short memory. He screwed many Illinoisans after he was elected last time and they voted for him again. What I am trying to say is my fellow Illinoisans, get your head our of your A$$es and vote for someone who will bring jobs to Illinois, not try to drive them away and raise your taxes (Some of the highest in he U.S.) to give money and service to those who do not pay taxes just because they and their sponsors vote for him.
