I have a question, Floridians -- Spouse and i are thinking of buying a house in Florida

We're nearing retirement, and, much as we love Chicago, we're getting really

sick of the long, cold winters....For the last week or so, the temperatures

have been well below freezing, and it's only November -- I think

you get the picture.

What are your thoughts on West coast of Florida vs. the East coast?

What are the most liberal cities on each coast?

Thanks so much for your help.

Anyone see the Quinn/Rauner debate last night?

Quinn didn't look or sound very confident, which made me worry about his chances.

On the other hand, last I heard, he was ahead of Rauner.

Has anyone seen "Gone Girl" yet?

I haven't seen it yet and I'm curious as to people's reactions.

President Obama is doing it again..

Knocking it out of the park!

He's at Northwestern University talking to students and supporters,

giving an overview of all his administration has accomplished so far.

Although I don't agree with him on everything -- His support for the TPP,

for instance -- He is SO impressive -- SO smart, SO poised, so "Presidential"

I will ALWAYS be proud to have voted for this man...Anyone who can not

see why he won two terms is a flaming idiot.

Does ANYONE here live in/near Wauconda, IL or anywhere in 14th District?

I ask because there is a Progressive Democrat by the name of Dennis Anderson

who is running against Tea-Party Republican Randy Hultgren.

Dennis is holding a Town Hall Meeting on this upcoming Monday, September 22nd

from 7pm to 9pm.

If you live in the 14th District or KNOW anyone who does, PLEASE ask them

to attend our Town Hall...Dennis is a GREAT candidate!

Any ideas for living off a social security benefit of only $680 a month?

I live in Illinois, in a somewhat distant Chicago suburb...I would consider moving

(In fact I'm thinking of buying a 'tiny house' to 'downsize' that way) but I don't

want to go further than necessary....I'm thinking maybe Madison, Wisconsin, if

I have too. It's a very liberal town and they and are looking to start a tiny house


Cartoon: If Cops Treated Bankers the way Fergusen Cops treat Black People...

Are those here with plans to travel to Europe in the next month or two..

a tad fearful, given the ISIS scare, especially considering reports

that approximately 500 European passport holders are coming "home"

to Europe from Syria"?

I have them for next month, and though I've never been a fearful

person, given the current situation, I have to admit to some


Anyone watching the new, and final season of "The Killing" on Netflix?

I am -- and it's quite good so far.

I LOVED this series!

Netanyahu to US "Don't ever second guess me on Hamas again"


or he'll do WHAT, exactly?...Start refusing the 2 billion a year we

give his fucked up administration?

What an ARROGANT prick!!...Who the FUCK does he think we are,

his PUPPETS? I'm sorry, but this POS should be put in his place

'cause, unless I'm deeply mistaken, he and his country depend on us

a lot more than we do THEM -- See how Israel would be doing in their

current war ON Gaza without those Missile Shields we just bankrolled for


The outrageous disrespect he, and some others in Israel have

shown our Secretary of State, our President, and his administration

makes me want to kick their asses, literally AND metaphorically.

How 'bout we cut off their funding and see how "independent" they

are then?

P.S. Before accusations to the contrary start coming, I'm stating,

for the record that I'm NOT "anti-Semitic"or "anti-Israel" -- I'm anti-

Netanyahu, anti-Likud Party for their INSUFFERABLE hubris, not to

MENTION their indiscriminate slaughter in Gaza.
