Illinois: Obama’s Utopia, MY PRISON

Obama’s Utopia

by Madeline Deneen

Earlier this year Gallup polled the nation with the intent of discovering which state is the best to live in and which state is the worst…the findings will absolutely not shock you. To state the obvious, Gallup found that Illinois, the known birthplace of Obama “the politician,” (can’t speak for Obama “the man”) is the worst state to live in. I know, I know, why even waste my time writing about this? We’ve all seen the alarmist headlines deeming Chicago “the next Detroit,” but I still think it’s important to get to the bottom of what makes Chicago so awful to inhabit.


As a 10 year Chicagoland resident, I won’t deny the city’s allure and highly encourage people to visit, I mean it’s surrounded by a lake comparable to an ocean that’s only coned off due to contamination for about half the summer! But residents don’t have the great fortune of taking awe-inspiring snapshots from the top of Sears Tower, inhaling a juicy ketchup-less dog only to return to their affordable, protected homes. No. Us residents have to shoulder the burdens of Obama’s disease, A.K.A. liberalism every. damn. day. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, high crime, high taxes, corrupt politicians, lazy teachers, and of course let’s not forget restrictive gun laws.


However, our bogus POTUS was kind enough to enlighten all Americans on the ‘blue state blues.’ Hopefully we won’t develop a bad case of Stockholm syndrome and beg for more come 2016. So incase you haven’t connected the dots already, states controlled run by libs are crime ridden, tax you to tears, boast a low standard of living, and strip you of rather basic personal freedoms. So what do you say, how bout we keep “taste of Chicago” a food festival and not a national catastrophe?

    Brilliantly written, Madeline: cogent, sassy, accurate, and spot-on! I have referred PIE to my copious friends and will continue to direct attention to what our future leaders of the [hopefully still] free world have to say! In the meantime, I will indulge myself in your well-served desserts and continue to come back for more! Blessings for huge success!

      Thank you!

    One of the worst parts of this is that when these people finally move to find jobs, many end up in Red States and get right to work turning them into the steaming piles they left.

      While you make an interesting assertion, jonsen, I would love for you to flesh that concept out in more detail… What has your experience and observation led you to this conclusion? I pray it isn’t always the case…

        I grew up in a rural area that was not so far from New York City. It was safe, quiet, to the point that we didn’t have a police dept. Well, people fleeing NYC for a better life started moving in and the first thing they wanted was a police dept, with the higher taxes that would bring, as well as the hassle of having a full time cop looking for speeders and other “problems.” This is one example, I could site others.

          Thanks – good example! While abandoning what makes the place they are fleeing virtually unlivable, they bring that baggage and similar demands with them. Simply reinforcement that ‘they don’t get it,’ and will only recreate their messy nests wherever they move! “Wherever you go… there you are!” Appreciate the quick response!
