The reality of living in a democratic paradise

but but but I just saw on TV the huge deficit is 100% Republican Governor Rauners fault!!!!!!
They didn't say a word about the decades of debt he inherited it just said the huge deficit caused by Rauners radical plans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How does anyone so idiotic they believe that for even 1 second survives kindergarten??

Super majority to the POS liberals, with a stooge in the Governors mansion, of course madigan will come up with every scheme in the book to tax us more and more!!!

I still have not heard a single liberal suggest cutting spending, eliminating fraud, waste, abuse & corruption????
All I hear is "Hey welfare whores & leeches, more & more free stuff"
"Don't worry, every thing will be paid for by the guy smarter than you in the bracket above you!!!! :angrys00ls:

I don’t get what the bitch is about here?

Use a reuseable bag like the rest of the world. The tax is so people don’t use them anymore.

Problem solved

Because it's a slippery slope. They keep finding new ways to tax you to attempt to make up for deficits instead of going back and cutting spending.

I'm surprised IL hasn't done this sooner. I always believed they were. :dunno: I have plenty of reusable bags. Makes no difference for me but I do agree that IL is trying to overreach with all this taxation.

Exactly, the government should be small, not force us to buy stuff, force us to follow their agenda, force us to accept agenda's we don't believe in!!!!

It's an easy fix, I bought a couple of those washable bags for like a buck each.
I keep them in the truck, and if I happen to buy a basket full of food, I use some plastic bags.
I also return them, I never throw them away.
Should I buy more washable bags, probably, but I don't need more than 2 bags very often and don't think about it like I should.

How will this work at self checkout? I bag my own stuff most of the time. Will I have to press a button to report how many bags I used ?

At 5 cents each I will give the Jewel person an even dirtier look than I already do for using a bag per item and putting my lettuce in with the meat. F'real they could cut the bags by a third to a half if they just had some common goddamn sense.

What's the deal here? Just use those bags that they give out at the autoshow. If you saw seven pennies on the ground in public would you bend over and pick them up? Most likely not.

I was just in Northern Commifornia, and the self checkout asks you how many bags you used. Of course the answer is zero...

And to Ron's question of what's the big deal... They are budgeting 20mm bucks based on this tax, and if people do as you say and just don't use them, then they won't get their 20mm bucks and they will find something else to tax that you do care about, eventually.

This is some socialist bullshit. Already have a huge deficit and JB the Hut has already spent 440mm bucks in FY 2019 that we don't have, god forbid they cut some of these socialist programs to save money.

You are missing something!! He has to keep upping the pot or lose votes.

You just can't fix stupid, and when the majority is just that stupid, they rule :(
AGAIN, there is absolutely no intelligent reason to ever vote for a liberal, there just isn't.

They never even consider spending less, they only consider spending more to bribe more morons to vote for them.
If the guy telling the truth says look this state, county, city is jacked up, we must cut spending, we can't rape & steal from the hard working members of society any more.
They are already moving, hiding wealth, what ever, it's time to cut spending, and you will lose some of your free every thing the liberals keep bribing you with.
Well the leaches overwhelmingly vote for the other guy, and the minority with normal intelligence lose.

Just like what happened to Rauner.
I just saw a commercial that said Rauner caused Illinois to have a huge deficit :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

I don't know when Illinois had a balanced budget, but it sure and frick wasn't under blago & quinn!!!!!!!!
If Illinois's 1st ever deficit occurred under Rauner I will blow obama!!!!

This fat slob will spend money like water, he will hand welfare whores and able body leeches free every thing he can think of and will get re-elected as long as he feels like staying.

I live in chicago. I pay for bags if I don’t bring my own. Cloth bags are infinitely nicer for carrying more groceries and not falling apart when you have a dozen of them hanging off your arm trying to haul the whole load in one trip.

Cashier asks if you want bags: you pay for number of bags
Self checkout asks how many bags you used: you pay for bags

It’s a few cents. Makes me feel better about not throwing a bunch of waste away. The plastic bags do make great trash liners for small garbage cans though.

How does the government not step in ever? This state is so beyond fair tax and beyond fucked it’s never going to get any better.
