Illinois Democrats care about crimes and think criminals shouldn't serve in positions of responsibility, and their opinions remain unswayed by the fact that it affects people on their own side of the aisle.

How is this ironic, Subby? If Republicans were capable of the same, their party would be unrecognizable compared to what we have today.

Whereas republicans would squeal like stuck pigs about "criminalization of politics". Oh yes, I remember Tom Delay.

At least democrats still hold their own accountable for their crimes.

I mean as opposed to the former Ohio Speaker of the House who after being busted by the FBI for bribery still gets to keep his seat on the ethics committee.

There is Chicago style pizza which is the universally agreed upon definition of true pizza.

"Thursday issued a series of ethics proposals ahead of the fall veto session, including term limits for legislative leaders"

This could use a little more clarification. When they say "legislative leaders" do they mean the leadership positions, or just legislators?

To the Weeners, sadly I only have one smart to give. Not sure what subby is going for, and it doesn't matter. There was a time when people did not blindly follow any one group or team. They would actually stand up and do the right thing if an evil was pointed out to them. Not cover it up, lie and spin words. Or worse yet gleefully join in.

/ Humanity, it never changes, the same people who held other humans as slaves were showcased as highly enlightened. And their exploits were to be topped repeatedly throughout history all the while the perpetrators would tout how enlightened they were.
// Humans are the stuff of poop, we poop, that poop is food for other things, they excrete poop that feeds even more life, until the chain wraps around and we eat what eats our poop.
/// We should not despair at being made from poop, instead we should strive to be better than mindless poop eaters. Burma Shave Biatches.

//// Bonus internet points if a reader avoids the trap of guessing which civilization was exploiting other cultures in slavery and terror, answer, almost every single civilization at some point in its history has done this, very few have ever moved beyond the exploit others for gain stage of expansion.

It's not exactly like Illinois Republicans are a great alternative.  Jim Edgar is one of the biggest reasons why Illinois has an ongoing pension crisis and George Ryan decided it would be awesome to give truck drivers licenses in exchange for bribes.

Subby

A) you made it obvious that you're a republican

B) Your "punch line" makes it obvious that you think it is ok for republicans to be criminals

C) Your "punch line" makes it obvious that you really don't understand that democrats don't give a free pass to criminals just because they're "on the same team" like you do

Did you read the article?

subby is acting like it is inconsistent for democrats to make stronger ethics policies while there exists any democrats that violate them.  Subby doesn't understand that just because that's how republicans operate doesn't mean that is how democrats operate.  democrats have very clearly and consistently shown that they'll kick out members for being criminal.  republicans circle the wagons around their criminals.

This is such a tired insult, and it's not even true. It's not a casserole. Casseroles are essentially thick, baked soups. Chicago pizza has a crust and a structure. It's literally a pie.

People who argue about pineapple or not are heathens. Sweet and savory are a classic combo in cuisine.  The culinary ruling is "good", no matter what trolling comes out of Gordon Ramsey's twitter account (and yeah he was just trolling. no way he doesn't know this one).  

The REAL argument in pizza is crust.

And I assert that "if i can roll the pizza like a newspaper, the crust is an abomination."

I have been bribed before, and the payment was pizza with pineapple on it. I'm not sure what the prison term for letting players get better magical items in  a D&D game is, but the weak anticorruption laws of your so-called Illinois couldn't stop me.
