Pretending there’s a way out of our mess

Drew over at Ace of Spades encapsulates what many of us are feeling: …there’s no need to leave for Red State or anywhere else to join the “Let-it-burn crowd” because it’s everywhere.

**Written by Doug Powers The Illinois House is expected to approve a proposal that would attempt to lure Obama’s presidential library to the state by offering $100 million in taxpayer funding towards its construction : The proposal, pushed by House Speaker Michael Madigan, goes to the full House next. Madigan said it’s appropriate for Illinois to commit public funds for the library even though the state is grappling with serious financial problems. “The state of Illinois will spend over $1 billion in construction this year alone, so $100 million is not out of line,” Madigan said after the House Executive Committee…
