Talk of the County

They’re productive

As a high school teacher who has been paying nearly 10 percent of my salary into the state pension system for five years, I’m happy to see our state government so productive. Gov. Quinn is hard at work tweaking his silly Web site. Sen. Terry Link has enough free time on his hands to run for mayor of Waukegan. Since state government is “a part-time job in every regard,” shouldn’t that disqualify them for health insurance and pension benefits? At least Rep. Michael Madigan took the time to carefully write a pension amendment that would have accomplished nothing, even if it did pass.

Worst yet to come

You don’t even realize what you did in returning Mr. Obama and his administration to the White House. You are not now nor will be in the next four years better off. The worst is yet to come and it will effect our economy, our freedoms, and our country. So prepare.

Progressive policies

Democrats and liberals wrap themselves in the Bill of Rights until there’s something they don’t like. I listen to progressive/liberal radio. Recently, they tried to promote outlawing the far right from being able to filibuster because it stops progressive policies from becoming law.

It’s good

It’s good to be illegal. Come to the country of the U.S. and they pay for everything from your education to your medical cost. Now we’re going to give them a driver’s license. It looks like it’s time for the adults to take back over the operation of the country and let’s send the kids home to bed.

No interest

You who voted for Obama can also help pay for health-care insurance for the 700,000 undocumented individuals who came into the United States. Of course, the mainstream liberal media had no interest in reporting this prior to the general election.

Tell them

Listen up America, when are we going to notify the president and all the way down to the lowest form of government that they work for us and we don’t work for them? Enough is enough. Start calling your representatives and Congress people and tell them that.
