RELATED: >>549375


The state of Illinois has not passed a budget for close to three years.

Arguably it’s just as well because Illinois budgets for decades have been nothing but a moth-eaten collection of lies, one time deficits repeated endlessly, and financial wizardry statements designed to disguise Illinois’ real problems: failure to rein in spending coupled with a very business unfriendly environment.

As Illinois’ bond rating careens towards junk, Illinois Unpaid Bills Jumped to $14.3 Billion. Today, the state told contractors to halt roadwork other than that required for safety.

This does not raise much alarm in Illinois has these kinds of letters went out last year as well. It’s simply business as usual in Illinois.

My IDOT contact, who wishes to be left unnamed, reports …

"Hello Mish

Last year when they did this the extra work bill to the state cost millions of taxpayer dollars. At the last minute, the shutdown was averted but not until the shutdown measures were employed and thus extra cost was due to contractors and consultants.

Look out for the Road Builders Association to come out with an estimate of what it will cost this time around after the letter today.

Last year, the supplier for paper and toilet paper had not been paid and thus various offices were reportedly cut off of supply. IDOT employees were going to have to work from home due to the potential unsanitary conditions."

Five Illinois Universities Rated Junk

Yesterday, the Illinois Policy Institute reported MOODY’S DOWNGRADES 7 ILLINOIS UNIVERSITIES, 5 ARE JUNK.


Blame Who?

It is easy to blame Governor Rauner, but he is last on my list. Illinois has been in trouble for decades. The state’s only solution has been to tax, and tax, and tax.

That is precisely the same position as Chicago Mayor Rahn Emanuel.

The result is easy to predict.

Illinois’ Economic Growth is Worse than During the Great Depression

Illinois’ total state economic activity has increased by only 4 percent since 2007, which is lower than the U.S.’ 10 percent GDP growth during the worst decade of the Great Depression according to the Illinois Policy Institute.

It took $31.6 billion of new tax revenue to reduce the backlog of bills by $1.3 billion. But the complete picture is much worse as Illinois’ pension debt rose more than $25B from 2010 through 2015.

Illinois is not in danger of becoming a failed state, it is a failed state.




All the niggers on welfare are using the money


why dont they just sell some more corn?


Sadly I live in ChiCongo & go into any city or fed building & it looks like a BET awards show. They pay these 80-90 IQ fat asses 60+90k + to sit around & look busy it's a disgrace.

The gov INTENTIONALLY employs the nogs to have them dependent on gov & to chimp for the dems during elections. You could easily cut half their jobs & nobody outside of gov would even know.

This city is so corrupt being held hostage by dems/unions/teachers …

I took the train/public transport for the 1st time in years & maybe 5% of us are White it's all illegal beaners & other Africans it's a gross mess.



Welcome to reality.



>Don't blame the people actually running show.

>Don't look into the situation beyond your own personal experiences.

>The Republicans and the Democrats, both would rather see everything go to shit than be the first one to give up and admit there's a problem.

>blames niggers, beaners and everyone else.

Yes! Yes Goyim! It's all those filthy niggers and beaners! You need to fight back against the niggers! They're the problem! You have to protect your white legacy from the unwashed arabs coming for your daughters!

You losers are so powerless that you can only blame the lowest hanging fruit for your problems. Enjoy getting culturally enriched by the folks who are supposed to be fixing everything. They'll pocket all the money while you just sit around simmering in hate at the wrong people.



Trying a bit too hard there




>[muffled hissing in the distance.]

Next time goyim.. Next time.



Why are they even here tho? They clearly aren't happy being here, based on all the bitching they do. Nobody else wants them here. Why do they not leave?



Thanks, capitalism!



Illinios has followed the socialist model dumbass, giving almost everyone free gibs even when they don't really need it, especially Chicago! They even give the illegals free gibs like welfare and EBT cards.

Then the bureaucrats turn around and keep raising the taxes on workers and businesses and consumers every single year. Just like socialist countries do.

We keep telling you people this doesn't work and you keep blaming us for it? Fucking morons!



Inb4previousfag says swaddles himself in his hammer and sickle flag and says "b-but that isn't real socialism!"


Wealth re-distribution in action: inevitably everyone goes broke, yes even the free loaders.



It's the fucking pensions. Unions got stupid powerful and now they have a massive pile of retired people collecting their pensions. Illinois loves to waste money on stupid shit all the time too. I'm always kind of happy to see when they cut back on construction because they never really do anything but cause traffic anyway. Most of the time the sites are empty and if there are people there its obvious they're just sitting around doing fuck all.



Nice scapegoat but that is not true at all, it's wasteful spending and ever increasing free gibs to people who simply do not work, including illegals.

Stop trying to blame productive society as a reason to steal their wealth and redistribute it to worthless scum. Workers deserve their pensions. Why? Because they did something productive to earn it! Welfare leaches have not, nor have most of the bureaucrats who got us into this mess.

Again: socialism fails!




It figures socialists want - yet again - the taxpayers to bail them out, but this time, oh grab the pensions from those goyim! That way we can keep giving free gibs to the welfare queens and lazy leaches and get ourselves elected once again and remain in our cushy governmental positions!

Who cares how hard the goyim have to work for their savings? What do they matter, right? As long as we can feed our useless democratic socialist voters and hand the free gibs we remain in power! Seize the means of production!


must be the dumbocrats fault certainly not the niggers

p-please no one look at the financial state of big cities in spic/nigger infested south because then I would have to blame republicans to stay consistent



You obviously don't live here. The black and 3rd world problem fuels the jewish problem. They are all to blame.


Humans pick their noses and eat their boogers, and this has caused the downfall of civilization.



>All the niggers on welfare are using the money

it's not the niggers, it's the Democrats fault. This is one turd they have nobody else to blame for. And it's a big one.

here is a short history lesson:

……Illinois used to sell huge amounts of coal to other states, and the taxes on that coal paid for high state benefits. that worked from ~1930 to ~1970, with no problems

……when the EPA raised pollution standards starting in 1970, the high-sulfur coal in Illinois became less and less valuable and mines had to shut down, as other states stopped buying the coal

……the Democrats in control of state politics assumed they could not cut benefits and stay in power, so they began began raising taxes. a little. but they could not raise them enough to pay for the lost coal revenues

……so their budgetary brilliance saved nothing: state benefits are high but falling AND the state is now heavily in debt too

the only two counties that vote strong-Democratic in Illinois is Cook county (Chicago) and St Clair county (East St Louis)

if not for those two counties, the state would vote mild-Republican

if you look at the St Louis area on a map, you can see that the Missouri side has much more development than the Illinois side.

That is because of the lower state taxes that Missouri has, and that difference has happened since roughly 1970.



>Office of Business and Workforce Diversity

Is that what commies call treasurers?



Never mind, it's the Dept of Transportation.


>Diversity in our workforce and business partnerships is crucial to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). One of our greatest strengths is diversity of IDOT's workforce, where men and women of different nationalities, races and backgrounds work together to build a world-class, multi-modal transportation system in Illinois.

You need like 800 dollars a month to live in the USA. Unless you suck big educations dick or become a con artist you literally have to be a slave just so you have some shelter.

This is the shittiest country in human history. There is no such thing as the United States of America. This is a slave colony where you either kiss the kings foot or get raped in every hole. There is no getting around that. You are a slave, Neo!



Holy fuck this site is so gay. Programmers have one job and they always fail cause all they do is eat hot pockets and watch Big Bang Theory.




Isn't it always funny when some pinko commie starts acting all disingenuous and "le funny" by making these "OH SO TERRIBLE" >implications, only to turn around and imply the same things about the ".1%?"

Mate, wake up. The problem is cultural and our hatred of freeloaders, shitskins and degenerates is hate of a symptom - one caused by manipulation from interested powers. To blame the ".1%" is quite literally to blame the jew and its ethnocentric machinations.

Natural law is competition; white, black, latino, whatever - you'll never find a golden nugget at the bottom of men's hearts, no matter how much you artificially flatten the playing field.



Only a low iq poltard would throw a pity party then whine about someone "trying too hard" when they get schooled in an internet argument.

How have you not realized that 99.999% of the world translates all your buzzwords to "I have no argument. If this was real life I would hit the person who owned me because I'm a meathead dunce."

Go the fuck outside. Your text is so fucking annoying. Let the big boys speak. I love how we used to gang up on retarded THEDONALD cucks, now these fucking useful idiot pussies turned another place into their safe space. You are fucking cancer. Ronald Chump is a billionaire celebrity hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha like are you fucking serious hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha?!?!?!?!?!



Now you're REALLY trying too hard. It's not even bait my friend, just stop. "Acting" retarded is just being retarded.

Is this really what passes as wit these days? You're embarrassing yourself, and somewhere deep down I'm sure you realize that.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stop participating in your ruthless sliding of whatever thread on /n/ or /n+/ that it is you don't like.







It's almost like niggers and democrats aren't productive.



>Time 2 becum a big boy nd learn how to debate without relying on buzzwords and ad hominem attacks

Your whole post is buzzwords and ad hominem attacks though.

You're saying that like he doesn't know it. Why even respond to someone so blatantly fishing for responses. He obviously wants to slide something from the headlines, or just "troll."

You are oblivious.



Sounds like someone is too lazy to work. If you can't contribute something meaningful to society, then your life has no intrinsic value.

Oh shit, magic girlfriend guy brought backup. And this time he's PISSED!


Listen up faggots. Story time about my shithole state.

The past 5-6 governors (both Rep and Dem) are corrupt and Chicago mob controlled.

They helped spend and scam most of the money out of the system.

When the system bled dry, they robbed the pension system of every dollar and cent.

Now they STILL have a deficit and have to pay pensions to boot.

Mom has taught school for the past few decades and they are now telling her that she might get fuck all cause "LOL the moneyz gone".

If I wasn't an autist like the rest of you fucks, I would have bounced years ago.

My only reassurance is that I'm about as far away from Chimpcago as one can get in this god forsaken state.

Capitalism growth, getting rid of the unions, massive regulations would save Illinois. Killing communist leaders in the region would help save the region.


such true news




Is this /leftypol/'s attempt to shift blame for damaging quality of discussion on 8chan by openly recruiting and putting ads on reddit? Even /r/the_donald knows /pol/ hates them (even though they only know about 4chan), meanwhile /leftypol/ actively recruits redditors from /r/socialism and /r/full_communism.




/r/socialism was taken over by Tankies a year ago and everyone else was bloodily purged. Why would /leftypol/ recruit from the enemy stronghold? Were they taken over by tankies too?



Hell if I know, but /leftypol/ was running ads there and posting links to 8chan during some drama about some picture of a catgirl that got banned on /r/socialism.



Yeah, IIRC that was the Tankie purge, the Tankies used the most absurd, inoffensive non-issue they could find as an excuse to purge all non-Stalinists as a way to demonstrate their new power.

I never heard of /leftypol/ advertising there, tho.



>I never heard of /leftypol/ advertising there, tho

I've seen threads about their recruitment efforts on /leftypol/. They wanted to move up in the board listing, and hopefully surpass /pol/ as the dominant political board on the site. And the only way to do that is to attract more posters, but with more posters and more normalfags becoming aware of the site, average posting quality goes down sharply on every single board. Just look at 4chan to see what happens when chans go mainstream.


learn to format your batshit tinfoil you insufferable faggot

bumping real news



You wouldn't happen to have a link to one of those /leftypol/ threads?

>Just look at 4chan to see what happens when chans go mainstream.

People have been saying that for ages. People were saying that on 4chan when I first came there a decade ago, and now all of us Gaia kiddies who were the invading mainstream then are oldfags complaining about how 4chan ain't like it used to be.



>You wouldn't happen to have a link to one of those /leftypol/ threads?

No, it was months ago. I don't browse /leftypol/ often, not my cup of tea.

>People have been saying that for ages.

And it's always been true. We were all cancer at one point or another, the problems come when the cancer overwhelms the old guard.



>the problems come when the cancer overwhelms the old guard.

But that never happens. 4chan changes, but the people who come there change even more. No one can stare into the abyss and stay the same. The more of them come to 4chan, the more red pilled they get.



To a degree. But these days you can see /b/ whining about racism. The undercurrent has changed, most of the old guard has left for greener pastures.



To be fair, I don't go on /b/ anymore, I think we all start there, and then filter out to other boards.

I'm more worried about the people who don't start on /b/, who come directly to /pol/ or the like, and don't understand chan culture.

If /b/ is changing, if /b/ is getting offended by anything besides animal abuse, it's a very disturbing sign.

Maybe I'll go back there one day soon, see how it's changed.



Good luck. It's honestly depressing seeing what /b/ has become. For all its faults, it serves as an excellent status report of the health of a chan. When /b/ starts becoming casual bullshit, the rest is sure to follow if it hasn't already.



/b/ needs some real news
