Would you look at those morons... I paid my taxes over a year ago!

I'm not going to link the article because the link is like 5 lines long, but "the average Chicago household now owes a staggering $63,525 to cover local government debt, according to Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas." Well that's good news. Now that's just the local city government mind you. Then you've got State debt on top of that (and in Illinois, that is substancial) plus federal debt which is 45,000 per person, 130,000 per tax payer (and that's only money that's already been spent, that doesn't count promises made to social security/medicare/pensions/etc.) If you figure 1.5 tax payers per household than that's 195,000 plus the local debt is 260,000 plus it's got to be at least 40,000 for the state, which brings the total to over 300,000. Plus all the money that has been promised out in future payments. Now take a second and think. Where is all this money going to come from. People in greece are now outraged saying why should my taxes be raised, why should my pension be cut, i didn't do anything wrong, i didn't steal any money. This is that money. Everyone in this whole country has stolen this money, or at least allowed politicians to steal it on their behalf. this money has all been stolen from the future and your children and your children's children will all be paying it off unfortunately for much more than 3 months. This money has to come from somewhere eventually. And nobody is going to accept any tears when the bill comes due, just like greece's bill came due. When all these numbers are thrown around in billions and trillions i understand it can be hard to follow, but this is how much you personally, your household owes. Can you pay that kind of money? You are already on the hook for that, its been spent. Your drunk friend the government already bought shots of 100 year old scotch from everybody and the bill is coming. the only thing you can do now is keep them from ordering another round (which senate democrats have just asked for by the way.)

You know, you can just highlight a word, press the link button, and copy the link into the little screen that pops up. Then you just got one word instead of all those lines all the time.
