    TWO STATES IN THE MIDDLE OF AMERICA Illinois & Oklahoma: I thought these two states, made for an interesting contrast. The first part about Illinois and the second part is about Oklahoma.

    PART 1 - Illinois: "A State with No Republicans"

    Some interesting data on the 'state' of the State of Illinois ... There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Their average pay is $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?

    Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed ( murdered ) in Chicago. 221 killed in Iraq ; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

    Here's the Chicago chain of command :

    President: Barack Hussein Obama
    Senator: Dick Durbin
    House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
    Governor: Pat Quinn
    House leader: Mike Madigan
    Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
    Mayor: Rahm Emanuel

    The leadership in Illinois - mostly Democrats

    Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course, they're all blaming each other. They can't blame Republicans or even George W. Bush.

    So, let us get ALL the facts out while we are at it: Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any.

    State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any.

    Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans;
    there aren't any.

    This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois . And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us?

    George Ryan is no longer Governor - he is in prison. He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich, who is, by the way, also in prison.

    And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned and, that's right, he and his wife are both in prison.

    The Land of Lincoln, where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates.

    As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago , nothing is going to change, except the state will go bankrupt before the country does. Anyone who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian. Don't forget Detroit, another great example of a Democratic empire.

    With all the bad news, there is hope, so let's go to:

    PART 2 - OKLAHOMA - may soon have plenty of new residents .

    THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING, AND TRUE (as far as I know) ...

    Oklahoma is the only state where Obama did not win even one county in the last election... While everyone is focusing on Arizona's new law, look at what Oklahoma has been doing ...

    An update from Oklahoma:

    Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values ... HB 1330. Guess what...
    Oklahoma did it anyway.

    Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

    Guess what ... Oklahoma did it anyway.

    Recently they passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegals to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102.

    Guess what ... Oklahoma did it anyway.

    Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining, Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.

    More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003

    The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a setback for the criminals The Liberals didn't like it- -

    But ... guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

    Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers' license exams will be printed in English and only English and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.


    :smilewinkgrin: For the skeptics, here is Snopes link which backs this all up! http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/pending/oklahoma.asp :smilewinkgrin:

    I think this is great stuff, but I also think you should give more credit to the authors.


    But it is great stuff, RDII, and I thank you for sharing it.

    I don't know who the author is. Just that there are several possible names associated with it. So I left the author credit silent. I did provide a link, and there were at leadt ten more, so if you can figure out who really authored this, please post the name,.

    Thanks though, I thought it was good stuff too. :smilewinkgrin:

    Huh?

    Illinois has two Senators, one is Republican.
    Republicans won nearly half its House seats in the last election.
    The Governor is Republican.
