@Stones - I actually agree with you. My problem is simply the economic conditions presentlyRead More affecting Illinois, the lack of any credible solution and the nature of the Chicago and Cook County governments which can't seem to keep crooks out of office. I think Presidential libraries serve valuable purposes (and that doesn't matter which President it happens to be) can provide economic benefits to the area in which the library is location (whether short/long term is another question which I am not in a position to answer).

It probably took 3 judges to get them to grant the warrants they were looking for. And the AttorneyRead More Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) is the "bar" you are looking for. You will find specific rules there and though anyone can lodge complaints, and all complaints are heard, the accused members of the bar have a right to defend themselves and their actions.

Bring jobs by encouraging new businesses, expanding existing ones, encourage R&D, internshipsRead More for students and teachers, give incentives for hiring, particularly the unemployed, encourage home ownership, energy conservation, incentives to get off the vices, like drugs. Convert firearms to ploughs and high tech tools, cars and robots. These will all add revenues and taxes, and we could go back to the good old days of 2 or 3% state income tax. Look at the states with zero state income tax: WA, TX, FL, Arizona, NM, Oegon and others: they are all pro-business, which means more jobs and sales/excise taxes. I hate going to Chicago to pay outrageous parking fees. No such problem in beautiful suburbs like Oakbrook. Bring more jobs to suburbs and the country side. Give incentives to farmers. Why are more ag businesses in Iowa, WI and MN than in IL? I want to start a business which in 3-5 years could add as many as 100 jobs. I went to my village: no incentives! Wyming is giving us "no taxes for 10 years". Wake up IL politicians!

Dear Edward ,You miss understood what I said, I worked there 30 yrs ago not worked for them for 30Read More yrs. I worked there for 5 yrs in the earily 1980's to the late 1980's. You might might believe this ,but under the last 2 assessor's the office has becomed 100% more open/accessible to their information. The stystem is broken, but this would take a tremenious undertaking to revamp the whole system from top to bottom. This would be like taking on the under funded pention that still hasn't been fully addressed except on the back end some 20 to 30 yrs from now ! I did my best to help the tax payers of Cook County & that's one of the reason's why I left the Assessor's office ! I got removed as an analysis,working on the appeals for them since my production wass 40-50% less then everyone in the department. Why, because I was taking the extra time to give everyone a fair break on their assessment through the loop holes that I learned. I got removed & they put in Tax payer Assistance counter, on the phones to answer questions & then on reachout. I was there in the 1980's for the first 100 yrs flood in Des Plaines. I help homeowners write up their compliants for them.

No - 'John', I'm not proposing to 'spend trillions on the children' - though we did spend such onRead More Iraq and Afghanistan, as an aside. What I'd suggest is that we cut the number of taxing bodies in Illinois down from the nearly 7,000 [the most - by far, of any state in the nation] to under 250. Get rid of townships - they're an antiqauted concept and redundant, at best. Combine duplicative administrative government entities, e.g., sanitation, water, etc, 'districts.' Eliminate patronage. Establish term limits. Require high-school seniors across the state to take a meaninfgul standardized test before they're allowed to graduate. If students can't pass standardized tests at the end of each year of school - hold 'em back. For the long term unemployed - those who are illiterate in English, require 30 hours a week of English language classes for them to receive Illinois State Medicaid, Sec. 8 housing subsidies, food-stamps, etc. For those who are literate and physically able, require 30 hours a week of public-service and 10 hours a week of documented job-searches. For any company doing business in Illinois to get a tax-break, job creation and/or job-training must be allocated to equal no less than 50% of the tax-breaks. There are entirely too many freeloading companies in Illinois. Establish a 2% payroll tax on non-residents who work in Illinois, being those from the border states of Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri and Kentucky [Iowa and Indiana are so called 'right to work' states that attract businesses away from Illinois and which deflate the value of labor]. Establish minimum standardized test scores for admission to State of Illinois universities. Require Illinois to fund the 'primary' costs of public education in Illinois. Require Illinois to eliminate defined benefit pension plans for ALL state employees [private industry began doing that over 20 years ago]. Establish an education surtax on parents with more than two children in the public schools, for each child beyond the two. Provide a tax-credit to families whose children attend private schools [non-religious only] equal to 1/2 of the educational contribution that the state makes per child {for up to two children}. Require teachers on the public payroll to be truly fluent in English - written and spoken. Limit - as a percentage, the number of non-resident and/or foreign national enrollments in the state's institutions of higher learning {to no more than 20% - undergraduate and/or graduate}. Establish cooperative work-study programs with Illinois-based businesses and the students in the state's public universities. Etc, etc, etc. There's a lot that COULD be done and that SHOULD be done, but, will we [Illinois] do it/them? Hardly! This is... the dire state of the State of Illinois.

The rising cost of college and choking student debt is an unnecessary tragedy because there are manyRead More good reasonably priced regionally accredited colleges. But, alas, cost is seldom considered. Instead, students justify expensive schools thinking they will earn more when they graduate. The New York Times recently reported on two studies which show that equally smart students earn the same whether they attend an expensive college or a less expensive college. Online learning should be considered by cost conscious students. Low cost options are available because online students can choose from thousands of regionally accredited colleges. To illustrate the affordability of online options consider that a Bachelor in Business Management from Western Governors University costs only $23,120. See Search results: http://www.degreesanywhere.com/Degrees.aspx?DegreeTypeId=2&FieldOfStudyId=2802#.UyMX4_ldV8E Or a BA in Liberal Arts from Thomas Edison State College costs only $22,800.

Fort Sheridan golf is not gone due to government planners. It is gone because daily fee golf is aRead More bankrupt business. That is why Sunset is losing $200K per annum and HPCC is swirling down the toilet. Fort Sheridan golf course as part of Red Seals redevelopment of Fort Sheridan was actually owned by the Lake County Forest Preserve and they had half heartedly promised a redeveloped Fort Sheridan golf course at some point after the redevelopment of Fort Sheridan. The Lake County Forest Preserve was thinking about doing a "Thunder Hawk" type golf experience which is the course they own and operate in Beach Park up near Zion. They soon realized that doing this deal would have been a bad decision so it never happened and the weeds just keep growing there. The difference between HPCC and say a Deerfield golf course is very simple...LOCATION!

The issue is weather the man who seeks to be governor of Illinois is a sex offender or his accuser is a nearly bankrupt vile lier. The real issue, in my opinion, is that politicians are noticably self serving and do not wish to propose changes that could get Illinois and America back on its feet monitarily and fiscally. At this point I think Mr. Rutherford needs to drop out of the race if he does not submit to a comprehensive lie detector test. His accuser should do the same. I think we have had enough of the criminal shanninagans that define Illinois executive branch on all levels, state, local, federal, including intelligence agencies- they are just better at sneaking around and manipulating.

Keep this simple. The report says Rutherford invited his subordinate employee, Michalowski, to hisRead More Peoria home for "an overnight retreat." That is enough for me! It reflects bad judgement if nothing else, very bad judgement to say the least. No supervisor, with any sense would do that. Enough already...I'm for someone else.
