How much to contract some good Italian boys to make him an offer he can't refuse?  Can't be any more costly.

FTR, I am joking about having mafia heavies kill or intimidate policritters.

You may be joking, Roo_ster, but it WOULD be a good deed they could do for the country...

I can send you a check for $0.38.

Hey, it's a start.
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

If I send you unmarked bills, none bigger than $20, will I still be put on a trrrist list?

If so, please see if it can be the No-Fly one.

stay safe.

PS - you won't mind if there are traces of narcotics on the bills, will you?

Political office is usually cheaper to buy in Illinois...you might want to relocate.

Move to Massachusetts.  They don't bother to buy politicians - most of them are grown locally.  The few that are needed to fill up the seats are merely rented, and traded in at the end of the season.  (Scot Brown, Fauxahontas, et al.)

Will this start a "politicians" war between the states - how many indicted/convicted Speakers of the House equals an indicted/convicted Governor?  And on a personal note, I do not care how many bi-polar addicts a state has for a Representative - there is no way they can match the killing power of a Senator's car.

Come on.  Seriously.  Compared to Illinois, everyone else is fighting for second place.

Since 1971, over 1000 Chicago politicians have gone to jail.

Plus we've sent four of the last nine governors to Club Fed (two others were acquitted).

I can't think of a better place for policritters then behind bars.  ;)
