    Dream on....................You can peg the day in 2001 when the Alan Greenspan said surpluses were a drag on the economy and justified tax cuts to rates lower than anytime since the start of WWII. Then surplus vanished...........puff

    Now, the moderator can shut this farce down as being too political..................

    Chapter 7 time. Cash out and start over. Burn the credit cards. And for God sake, never discuss politics (can I say God or is that political?)

    We are keeping an eye on this for a number of reasons- Politics being one. Politics are not allowed as it's a no win fight that disrupts the forum. Now and again someone will hit the outrageous button to get the last word in and close the thread. I'd kinda like to skip that as it doesn't help.
    Thanks, The Mod Team.

    Nope, never claimed to be, but new bridges on country roads with little to no traffic on bridges that couldn't have been 15-20 years old. Plus living in IL for 25 years you begin to see patterns.

    Perhaps you should invest in the education and licenses that would allow you to make those judgements for others. As is, you are just speculating on subjects with no technical basis that might cost someone's life.

    And you obviously don't have a clue about how corrupt IL is.

    A state gov't preforming periodic road and bridge maintenance sounds like the worst of the onerous tyrants. To the barricades!

    Or, you could spend some time reading this review by the America Society of Civil Engineers........

    Lol - I think we'd give you a serious run for the money. 4 out our last six governors are in jail and that's just the petty stuff. (100 billion in unfounded state pensions. . .where did that money go?)

    Take care,

    What I think is funny how sometimes we get all wound up about stories in the media about contries like Mexico or the Mid-East, where bribes and corruption are commonplace and we are happy that we live in a civilized and developped country.....

    I also live in Illinois. Your statement is not correct.

    Illinois only has 2 governors in jail currently. Rod Blagojevich and George Ryan.

    However, 4 of the last 7 have been convicted and all of them served some time.

    Unfunded pension payments went to pay current expenses, during decades of low income taxes, which allowed the State to live beyond it's means. Kind of like credit card debt.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Unless they can DRASTICALLY increase their income, bankruptcy is the only option for them.
