    I know it’s tradition, but if I keep pardonin’ these turkeys every year, I wonder if it sends the wrong message to AF-SCAMMY.


  26. - Brain Freeze - Wednesday, Nov 23, 16 @ 11:45 am:

    Maybe somebody can help me understand the continued focus on pension reform. I understand it is a big part of the budget. I understand that there may be a slight chance that the “consideration” aspect of contract law could allow a workaround if workers voluntarily agree to forego their current pension. But how does this save money? Just how many state employees are going to forego their constitutionally protected pension to take something of lessor value, that will also save the state significant amounts of money? Or is this just all for show? Any enlightenment would be appreciated.


  27. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 23, 16 @ 11:46 am:

    “Maybe 44 points in my TAA was a bit of an overreach so I will just continue to be hypocritical and continue my campaigning on only 5 points. But don’t ever expect me to give detailed reasons, or ever prepared a budget. Campaigning is too much fun to bother with governing.”


  30. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 23, 16 @ 11:50 am:

    “I just want to hurt anyone not like me or those foolish enough to think Madigan is causing the pain. It’s tiring, but it’s my life work now… “

  149. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 23, 16 @ 3:48 pm:

    ===that tv behind me===

    True story. That TV was purchased by Jim DeLeo because the TV at the mansion during the Blagojevich era was a piece of junk. It was very modern for its time. But that time was over a dozen years ago.

    Yes, Thanksgiving is a bereavement day… its about the turkey.

    “What’s that, Diana? Why am I on The Owl’s laptop and not wearing my wedding ring? I’m glad you asked that question, because…. look over there! What’s that behind the TV? It’s that big check I wrote for The Ounce and forgot about!”

    “And that, my friends, is how The Turnaround Agenda ™ works!”
