Democratic leaders in Illinois applauded a draft memo leaked to a conservative Web site Friday that they believe suggests the government is seriously considering transferring terrorist suspects from Guantanamo to their state.

We've got a nuclear power plant within a few miles of that prison, Rock Island Arsenal which is the only functioning US Army Foundry for manufacturing the things that my buddies and I need overseas so we can stay alive, the big Mississippi River which is a major source of water and commerce for America, etc.
Do I really need to go on about this? I don't want this s*** this close to home.

the first line of the article says it all


Democratic leaders in Illinois applauded

That's because Illinois is in big trouble!They say ten percent unemployment I say more like twenty-twenty five with most men out of work relying on their wives 50% less paycheck.Oh and then there's thisFAIL, Part One: Chicago's Parking Meter Lease Deal
That was a democratic leader.
And they were responsible for this so I don't see why their judgement would be in question 1 Asian carp turns up after $3mil fish kill of tens of thousands of fish

Man, you gotta learn politicspeak. Obama promised to close GITMO. Not end the GITMO crap. He's just moving the location. Guess what? Come January 20. 2010 Obama will proclaim that he lived up to a campaign promise and people will cheer. Wooohoooo! Obama closed GITMO!
