Bost and other state Republican lawmakers have expressed frustration with Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn's targeting of state payouts to Illinois schools to cover pensions.
My, my...I sooo wanna see more folks like him saying what needs to be said. It's probably political suicide, but folks will listen.
One of my brothers lost his job back in the 70's, As a result, he couldn't pay for the car he'd been paying on for three years. He hid the car to keep it from being repossessed.
A knock on the door late one night turned out to be a guy from the loan company wanting the car. He told the guy he didn't know where it was. The 'thug' said, I'm with the teamsters, and if you don't tell me where it's at, you'll get your legs broken.
My brother beat the living daylights out of him, and threw him down the stairs ( not sayin that's right ). Either way, they didn't come back. He got another job and paid it off.
If your not old enough to know, that approach by the punk is the way they operated. Now instead of threatening individuals, they are threatening companies and threatening to bankrupt states ( think Wisconsin ).
Their days are limited, and they know it. What goes around, comes around.
