Illinois has been shackled with a reputation of political sleaze from Chicago Wards
and dishonest Aldermen to the bipartisan corruption of Springfield State Capital. The pattern of crooked government is a given.
What is often ignored is the negative impact and toll that such fiscal mismanagement takes on small business. Back in 2014
Illinois was already at the bottom of the barrel. “Business friendly” may not describe the Land of Lincoln after
it ranks second from last in a new study. The Chicago-based research group, American Economic Development Institute, ranked Illinois the 49th worst state for business just ahead of California. While
facilitating an environment that encourages small business is important, sound budgetary policies and pragmatic governmental
debt ratios are essential.
If you ever had doubts that the Federal Government experiment has failed, the bipartisan
busting of the budget has made it clear that Congress abdicates their sacred duty to defend the nation from internal enemies
of the people. Forget the preposterousness argument that the United States must have the most expensive military to expand
the evil empire that has been built up since the end of World War II. Real national defense starts at our own water's edge
and needs to relinquish any absurd notion that our own safety is enhanced by having deployments to every corner of the globe.
As long as the State Department expands their interventionism, diplomacy is scarified upon the alter of continuous military
bombing. Eliminating the restrains of sequesters to tamp down the size and intrusions of gun boat intimidation are a step
backward. Actual national defense is diminished by the garrison bases located far from our own homeland.
The facts about the collusion among the Deep State operatives regarding their plan
to eliminate the Donald Trump Presidency have been covered in detail. Connecting the linkage among career supporters of the
establishment empire within the FBI, DOJ and the Intelligence Community confirms our Founding Father's most profound fears.
Reject the specious diversion that party politics determines the correct version of the narrative and adopt the reality that
the actual truth has been demonstrated by the actions of the systemic criminals that hold senior positions within these agency
Ah, stargazing upon a land far away from within the inner dome of an alien planetarium
is a practice that DACA Dreamers excel. Some adapt and attempt to assimilate. Others hold on to their native language and
strive to establish their foreign compounds, while keeping their own culture. When the progeny of open border trespassers
settle into the barrio communities of urban ghettos or transplant their adobe brick abodes to tranquil rural hamlets, the
country becomes a multilingual Tower of Babel. This reality has created the Disunited Estados of Amerika. What all these outsiders
have in common is that they entered this country illegally.
The utter farce of the Mueller investigation into Trump collusion with Russia demonstrates
the most obscene and overwhelming pattern of government deceit and deflection in decades. Enough has been written on this
trolling probe to convince sincere and honest people that the protection racket thugs are running a confidence game against
the populace and has abandoned any prospect of justice. Still, the fake news gatekeepers that select what is suitable for
the apathetic public to hear see or read keeps the fairy tale narrative going to prevent looking into the true crimes committed
by the cabal of establishment globalists.
For those obsessed with identity politics, their ignorance
or self-imposed amnesia of their own heritage is so profound that few honest historians dare correct the record, less they
become ostracized from the towers of higher learning. The void created by this lack of integrity requires that those not attached
or bound to the anti-intellectual centers of propaganda education must carry the message to others who have an open mind and
a sincere desire to know the truth. While Democratic factions adopted during the reconstruction era may seem harsh to the
culturally deprived, but compared to the ostentation of self-proclaimed champions for diversity, becomes pale by contrast.
Their hypocrisy is not new, but the extent of their neurosis approaches clinical insanity.
the days when you shopped until you dropped seems to be from a time when socializing meant actually interacting with other
people. Toys "Я" Us has lost its appeal because the reverse dynamics of spoiling the toddlers resists the
challenge of braving the elements and cold temperatures to put wrapped presents under an artificial tree. Now, if it cannot
arrive at the door delivered by USPS, UPS or FedEx; it's just not desirable. The consumer culture has made a giant leap into
the cyber space of emptiness and irrelevancy. Spending money and spreading the wealth no longer operates under the same rules
that enriched the growth in the (PCE) personal consumption expenditures. The void of satisfaction in buying trendy gadgets
and stylist apparel feeds a basic isolation from meaning or contentment.
