If Illinois became as anti-gun as NY, would you still stay?

Happy Gas Tax Day!

 

How are you going to celebrate? I think I'll grill a roll of $5 bills then blow the remains up with fireworks.

 

I think the gas stations around me played a price fixing game this last week...  About 5 days ago there was about a 25 cent jump in gas prices overnight at pretty much every gas station, seemed odd at the time knowing the tax wasn't here yet, but now that the new 19 cent tax hit today the price didn't budge up or down, not even a penny of shift in price since yesterday, hmm.

 

**From some local social media, it's not just me noticing this, apparently a handful of local gas stations have jumped up in price to over $3, but most are still holding yesterdays price of about $2.75-$2.80.

 

Same here (St. Clair county).  They jumped from as low as $2.469 up to $2.699 by Sunday (6/30).  By Monday afternoon, most were at $2.899 and a couple were at $2.999.

Wouldn't it be a crying shame for there to be a "boat accident" like so many of us have had with our firearms? :drool:  :devil:

Just an update on my exodus from Illinois. All settled in new to me house and Illinois house is sold.

Had to wait about 7 days to get a new Iowa drivers license in the mail. I took a $35 1-2 hour online class and applied online to sheriff's office ($65ish).

Received text message that night that application was received. The next morning ( less than 14hours) my application was approved by text message. Card was received in mail 5-6 days later (weekend included).


Wife has now applied also and is approved, waiting on card.

We moved to Indiana nine years ago.  Many Illinois folks have moved to the northwest Indiana area.  I know some local are afraid they will bring their politics with them.  One thing I will bring up that hasn't been mentioned:  I feel very good that the Illinois criminal socialists no longer directly affect my life.  And yes, if they violated their oath to uphold the Constitution, I consider them criminals.

I'm stuck in my own little predicament...Il house on market for about a month and only 2 walk through. The market is DEAD. My collection escaped to NC, but I'm stuck here until the house sells. Good grief.

I moved out of NY when I was 18 after witnessing the state's bullying of businesses (taxation and other policies) and how they bullied my grandfather's neighborhood (eminent domain).

 

Illinois isn't just taxes, it's the same pattern of bullying by Madigan's Democrats that gives ample reasons to move elsewhere.

I don't plan on going anywhere, I am 11 months away from my lifelong dream of a paid off mortgage. We don't really pay much attention to all the Springfield/Chit-holecago nonsense down in my neck of the woods and I keep a pretty low profile.

"Jabba" and "Lurch" are just getting started.  If you start looking now, you might find better digs elsewhere with lower costs (taxes).  Just sayin' - -.

True, there certainly isn't enough money in Cook and the collar counties to even dent the pension crisis, I believe the the rural counties are going to start to see their property taxes spike, sales tax spike and we might even start to see retirement taxed, the state is simply too far in debt and in the hole at this point.

Who'd wanna leave and miss the impending court-ordered tax increases (/purple) which present a massive constitutional issue as courts have no taxing authority. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
