Its the FREE STUFF people. As a resident of COOK county IL let me tell you that FREE STUFF works 100% of the time. Its a way of life in these parts. Other people work and he rest get FREEBIES courtesy of the DEMS who are only too happy to spend OP$ via tax payer FREEBIES to stay in power so that they can get 2 or 3 IL state pensions.
Fact of life. Always is and always will be.
