All too true. You made my day, man.
Never get out of the boat....
You forgot to mention how many IL. politicians are in prison ( or should be) vs Texas. Jesse Jackass Jr soon to be along with his wife. Maybe they can share a cell with Blago
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
And don't forget the Texas Gov telling PETA to be out of town by sundown.

I agree 100%. I'm afraid I'd have to leave the country before I could move to IL (or a few other states for that matter).

My god, I'd hate to have someone run down the math on $,$$$,$$$,$$$s if this had been a D.C. to Texas comparison! Illonois is small fry compared to D.C. But, apparently, that is where D.C. is currently getting its spending justification math instructions.
Your story is funny!
My wife however is from Springfield, IL and this "scenario" would be restricted to Cook Co. and the City of Chicago.
In the rest of the state, they'd probably act like Texans and shoot the Coyote.
