Dear Illinois taxpayers:

From Truth in Accounting – each of you owes $49,500 because the wrong Constitutional Amendment is on the ballot. Fixing unfunded pension liability isn’t as important as giving unions more taxing power. Vote NO to Amendment 1 and NO to the people who did this to you:

Teaching Media Literacy?

By: Diane Benjamin Pritzker has signed a bill requiring schools to teach media literacy. How will this be implemented? Will the Russia hoax media be recommended?

Our Moron Governor

Illinois needs to tax retirement income

By:  Diane Benjamin Those aren’t my words – Democrat Illinois Treasurer Mike Frerichs stated that.  Of course he claims only the “high income” earners will be the victims.
