A dump of a city and a school.

Illinois, soon to be the next Montana, except replace the beauty with corn...

What is wrong with corn? It is quite beautiful.
06:14 PM on 06/21/2012
Without Chicago Illinois would be a lot of corn fields and a few small towns. Illinois needs Chicago more than Chicago need Illinois.

There are a lot of corn fields already. Have you traveled around the state?

Plenty of corn, and I have nothing against corn. But if you remove Chicago from Illinois thats about all you have, just corn.

and what is wrong exactly with small towns and corn fields? Do you ever eat the beef they raise or the food they grow? Oh--that's right---you raise your own cattle and grow your own food in Chicago, right?

There is nothing wrong with small towns or corn fields. The fact is though that Chicago is the economic engine of Illinois, of the midwest.

When those hillbilly farmers run out of money because we aren't buying their subsidized products anymore they will complain for us to come back. Get real, downstate IL is meaningless compared to what we generate up here.

Chicago has a Southern Illinois? When did this happen?

I think its when you go south of Interstate 80 and you can hear the banjo music playing.

What tax money? Chicago is a cesspool. The only reason the southern part of the state needs the taxes of Chicago is to fund the programs Chicago throws down there.

Cesspool. I'm thinking you're commenting from the outside in.

Goodbye.

Good luck with that.

Don't get mad that the Windy City represents most of the populace of Illinois and most of Illinois' economy.

I'm also sure if they managed to make Cook County secede from the state, people like Forby would lose their positions to Republicans...as the rest of the remaining state would go Red.

Illinois would, in an instant become nothing.

Except the number two farm state with a very low unemployment rate, a low crime rate and 4 million people who would be better off without it.
