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.

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

RaptorLC: No one who considers that casserole to be "pizza" was ever civil to begin with.


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.

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.

It's also only true pizza if it has pineapple on it.

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.

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."

A corrupt democrat?  I'm shocked.  SHOCKED!  Well, not that shocked.

gameshowhost: NY style pizza is greasy floppy cardboard with toppings.


You're more of a disappointment than season 8 of GOT.

I'm sorry I said something so cruel.  But you attacked first.

fark you subby.

Why get angry at subby? It's the politicians that are the criminals.


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.

The second civil war has already started.  The shooting part has not started yet, but it is getting closer and closer every day.
