    Hew,
    Too serious much?
    Your response to my obvious joke was priceless. Thanks.
    If you still don't get it read Buzz's comment.

    Glad to see my comments don't get under your skin because I have no credibility regards,

    Perhaps in the future you can give a heads up when you're going for humor or satire or anything beyond the run-of-the-mill shrill bleating about the sky falling. Thanks in advance.

    It seems that all of our governors in IL want to make License plates for a living, maybe we could get a discount on the fee's someday.
    Sort of funny!!

    There are very few things politicians do good. There is one thing they have been extremely successful at and that is to divide and conquer. We all seem to be so caught up in Republican vs Democrat that sometimes we don't see what really is going on. Does it matter what party your in if you lie to your constituents. Does it matter what party your in if you take bribes? Does it matter what party your in if you break the law in any way shape or manner? It doesn't matter what party your in if what you do is either illegal or unethical.

    We are in an economic crisis we haven't seen since the Great Depression. Congress has seen it fit to pass a 750 billion bailout bill to the financial industry with basically no strings attached.Just a few days ago banks refused to tell us how they have spent our money. This is hard for me to fathom. Yet when the auto industry asked for 25 billion of our money they want to know down to the last penny how the money was spent. To me this is a travesty, why accountability for one and not the other.? Most of you can guess why.

    This isn't a Republican vs Democrat thing, this is a failure of our Congress to act in the electorates best interest instead of their own. They have succeeded in diverting our attention from what is really important. We need to see this for what it is and hold these people accountable.

    Good direct post - I think you're becoming a Conservative - that's what we believe in - ACCOUNTABILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS -

    Merry Christmas to you!!!!

    Always has and always will be about "Politics","Congress has seen it fit to pass a 750 billion bailout bill to the financial industry with basically no strings attached.Just a few days ago banks refused to tell us how they have spent our money". Not a trick question but, do you remember exactley who controls "Congress"?


    Keeping it Real Regards

    It would have been nice is the FBI would have waited until a crime had been committed instead of just discussed. Sloppy police work

    And more hits just keep on coming.

    Now it is the selection of Richardson.

    This administration is vying for the most corrupt in history before it is even in office!
