I'll be damned if we let you guys have Galena and Rockford.

Even though this DEFINITELY isn't about race/culture wars, I wonder what these separatists think about "giving" East St. Louis to Missouri? I'm sure this "New Illinois" movement has plans to treat urban Peoria, Bloomington/Normal, and East St. Louis much better than actual Illinois does now.


You get Starved Rock, the Home Of Lincoln, "urban" Peoria and that one Deja Vu in Springfield that lets you in when you're just 18. We get the rest that's worth having. Sorry. You know what the toll is to drive into Chicago from that hellhole IN on the Skyway? $5.30 a trip. If you kick us out we're making it $8 for our former state-mates.

We might need a northern border on the State of Chicago thing. Perhaps we can "kick out" the rich exurban white d-bags and d-bagstresses in Lake and McHenry county who the Gov is gonna run through the ringer for stealing public college money from needy kids.

I feel like that road trip was kind of a rite of passage. IIRC no one's parents found out that we went there for literally every one of our 18th's, but that might be one of those things that parents know but never bring up to let you have your dirty little secret you little pervert you.
