"Illinois is not afraid of embracing the future my friends, they are not afraid of taking a  chance."

Yes, especially the Governors. They usually embrace the future in federal prison though.

Tao Te Ching (Te).

The great Way is easy,
yet people prefer the side paths.
Be aware when things are out of balance.
Stay centered within the Tao.

When rich speculators prosper
While farmers lose their land;
when government officials spend money
on weapons instead of cures;
when the upper class is extravagant and irresponsible
while the poor have nowhere to turn-
all this is robbery and chaos.
It is not in keeping with the Tao.

      When "the rich" spend extravagantly, the people that provide extravagant things work and prosper!

      If the Community Organizer gets his way, and CEO's don't use Corporate Jets ........... what will the people that provide, fly and maintain those jets do for work?

      I recently attended the annual employee appreciation dinner hosted by the company that employs my wife. It was a moderately extravagant business casual affair that employed over a dozen persons! Business drives the economy, not Government!

                      Exactly ash, which is why I'm praying that if enough of my bubbles don't get burst, I can use them as my "stairway to the heaven" and the stars.

                      (I would even settle for just our closest star Alpha Centauri). Thanks for your concern.   Sun Smiley

                              To each his own, but a new Jeep Cherokee (yeah, I'd splurge for the leather interior, haha) for me and Cadillac CTS or Chrysler 300 for the wife would do just fine in this house.
