Illinois fails to come up with a budget. Gov. Rauner responds to state lawmakers failing to pass state budget. So what happens? They try doing a sugar tax on drinks. Judge blocks Cook County soda pop tax 

Even though it’s supposed to curb obesity and raise health overall all it’s really going to do is cause people to spend less money elsewhere. Meanwhile Illinois politicians are fattening their wallets, because of a dysfunctional budget it’s a great excuse to extort taxpayer money. Illinois is falling apart. How Illinois became America’s most messed-up state

Illinois already has the worst tax rate in the US, ILLINOIS HAS HIGHEST OVERALL TAX BURDEN IN THE NATION – Let’s understand why Illinois has the highest property taxes
Translated: Illinois residents are being robbed from their income. Other states do not have these ridiculous tax rates. You may heard the phrase, “taxation is theft”, well in this case Illinois fits it perfectly. Millions politicians are thieves. Since they can’t come up with a budget, they are increasing taxes and of course they are doing just that which makes Illinois the worst state in America, Tax increase approved by Illinois House heads to Senate; Gov. Rauner threatens to veto

No more tax increases Illinois!

Several lawmakers called for people to act with courage and support the tax hike.

“I hate tax increases, hate them, and it will hurt small business to do this, but it also hurts small business to ask them to do business with the state and then we don’t pay them,” said Rep. Terri Bryant, R-Mt. Vernon.
“We have an opportunity to keep our state afloat and stop being an embarrassment,” said Lou Lang, D-Skokie.

Next stop is over at the Senate, which reconvenes at noon Monday.

House Speaker Mike Madigan was celebrating the votes Sunday. The bill does not include any of the reforms the governor wanted.

So this is the response from the Republican party. Enough already, as an Illinois resident i am sick and tired of having my hard earned money taken away because the politicians can’t come with a budget. Everything from soda taxes to higher rates at the gas pump to higher tolls, everything in Illinois is going up. The only thing that is going down is the population and property value.

Something needs to be done here and it’s along the lines of kicking these politicians out of office and getting people who know how to do a strict budget without raising the taxes. In fact taxes need to go down. Illinois residents are already hurting because of the poor mismanagement of taxpayer money and high taxes. At this point, the only thing Illinois can do is go bankrupt and let the surrounding states handle the former Illinois state because at this point, Illinois is too far gone. With the soda tax in Cook county, it’s only a matter of time before people just leave Cook county and Illinois all together. The tax increase is only going to make things worse for Illinois. Not having a good budget is making things worse for Illinois.

It might be too soon, but R.I.P. Illinois.

Illinois end-of-year budget deficit to top $6B

Illinois has a total of $14.9 billion deficit. And no one is doing anything about it. The result, higher taxes and population decrease, Illinois loses more residents in 2016 than any other state / https://www.illinoispolicy.org/reports/still-leaving-illinois-an-exodus-of-people-and-money/

This also drives up the constant violence Chicago faces, 8 shot in Lawndale: ‘This is just the city we live in’

High taxes and poor education isn’t helping much in the state of Illinois. The biggest problem is that there isn’t anything being done to rectify the deficit. The increase in taxes won’t help, Illinois Senate Passes Budget, Tax Increase

“You pay the highest property taxes in America. We’ve got to change that. We’ve got to bring our property taxes down over time. And the way to start is to do a true, long-term property tax freeze and give you – all the people of Illinois – the power, the ability to decide, if and when and how your property taxes move,” Rauner said during the Facebook Live. “That’s what we’re pushing for. We’ll never give up on that push. And that’s the stumbling block right now.”

Consequently people are leaving Illinois. Why pay ridiculous tax rates when you can move somewhere where taxes are not as high.

700+ days without an Illinois Budget; Local school district could close if nothing passes

Bottom line is Illinois has leaders who have no idea on how to budget. Illinois needs to stop spending money on useless things such as researching on whether they want to build a road, in fact they should stop building new roads and fix the problems with the roads they do have. Increasing tolls, taxes, gas prices and the overall cost of living will only hurt the state in the long run. Illinois has to come up with a budget that cuts all the useless spending out. And with a $14.9 billion deficit, i think it’s time to cut unnecessary spending.

Is that your only entertainment? (Spoiling your desire)
To blow your minds on a one-way track
From a distance…

Building knowledge out of flexible existence
Hunt for adrenaline is staggering, grand lack of emotions
You’ll never face conclusions, you’ll get what you want
Am I really an exception?

Is that your only entertainment? (Spoiling your desire)
To blow your minds on a one-way track
I tell you a lie and you make it a statement (Sleeping in denial)
You’re all wasting the time of your lives

Distance – Soilwork

This is been me for quite awhile now. At least feeling like i am wasting my life. Eh, not entirely but i work all week and then when i come home for the weekend i’m mostly watching tv, playing videogames or surfing the internet. I used to work in retail and i never had enough money to do anything. Fast forward to day i work in a factory and i came to notice many of the people there get drunk and party. Well that’s not really my thing, especially as an introvert.

So this song kinda fits that but including with me i tend to do the same things. Stuff that is probably meaningless but i do it anyway. And having to clean my apartment (and sleeping) i really felt like i wasted my weekend. Well i needed to clean my apartment, is one thing and i didn’t get to spend a whole lot of time cleaning (more like i need to organize) but i do question what i am doing with my time. I don’t get to hang out with friends that often anymore (mostly because they’re all busy) and finding metalhead friends is so far and few between as it is. I’m not that introverted to the point where i need to isolate myself from all human contact but it hasn’t been as simple as it used to be to find new friends that actually have the time to be friends. Most of the people i either hang out with now are people (at work) or my dad, stepmom and my stepsister. And while i mostly am just talking to people i’m friends with at work sometimes i’d like to go out and do something.

As i’m typing this, Sunday is practically over. I have to get ready for the work week in which i don’t get to be at home, i’m at my fathers place all week. That does really need to change, but i have not found a closer place to work yet. Been trying to find a townhouse with an attached garage. With the limiting funds though it’s not easy. While i am making more i have a income to debt ratio especially when i have a limit of money in my savings. Buying a new home is costly, but it’s either that or spending near as much every month for an apartment. And i am tired of apartment living. In any case this is a strain on me to find a closer place, either that or i’ll have to start driving home daily, which puts more wear and tear on my old vehicle. I don’t mind the mileage as the maintenance is kept up, but the roads here tear up vehicles. And having a pet at home, a cat this makes matters even worse. She likes being home apposed to my dad’s and i think it’s because of too many people/animals there. 2 cats and a dog. So i definitely need to find a new place pronto not only for my sake but my cat. But, at this point nothing is found. I may have to sacrifice getting a place with a garage but also my car is being used as a garage. It’s tacky, hence the requirement to find a place that has a garage, plus i don’t have to dust/scrape off my car in the mornings.

All throughout my life i have kept going through my mind that i don’t want kids. I grew up in a rough childhood that i would never impose on another soul. The endless cycle of tormented souls is not my idea of a good time and my recent drama experiences this past week clearly shows how much life is so much of a douchebag. Now this is not to say i would never want to have kids or even adopt one it’s just that i am nowhere near the level of being ready, let alone the world isn’t just ready to have another me running around. I came across this article and i’m mystified why someone would argue over someone not having kids, Why Your Top 10 Reasons For Not Having Kids Are Stupid

Why? Even if i were to be a good parent (which i really don’t think so, i struggle with basic things), as a logical person we have more than enough people in this world. 7 billion. If we tried to bunch them all up in one area on the planet it would be very chaotic. I get mentally drained just from a day’s work, one of the reasons i am introverted is because i can only take being around so many people for so long before i need to relax. In reality i am just not the best fit to have a family.

I do not believe overpopulation is an issue, however with the social system we hold onto so much we have already exceeded the amount of people this system can carry (especially in some areas). We have more people than we do jobs with livable wages and besides that it’s rare to find a job that is stress free. I’ve heard some people say work isn’t supposed to be fun, but if you are not enjoying your job it’s going to make it that much harder to want to work 40+ hours so you can pay for that roof over your head and the vehicle to get to work. Besides feeling overwhelmed by the amount of people and the cost of living, people tend to have more than 3 children. I’ve heard of people having over 7 children (as high as 15). I have relatives who had children as high as 8. That’s too much, i am not judging these people because it’s not my life or any of my business, but it does factor in my reasons not to have children. That tends to go with population control. I’m not an advocate for reducing the population and genocide is just pure evil. However, i don’t see anything wrong with not wanting to have kids.

It is unclear if Christians frown on not wanting to have children, let alone sometimes i feel like my dad is disappointed in me for not having any kids yet (well or at least being in a relationship with someone). I don’t even want to discuss the subject with him, besides all the other reasons, i am not mentally capable of carrying for a child, birth or adopted doesn’t matter let alone i don’t care if people think i am ready or am capable of having children, i’m 37 years old but i feel like 60. I struggle with relationships, let alone with work and daily life so kids are really not even an option anyway, even if i wanted kids it would not happen regardless. I’m just trying to survive the day to day life.

Warning: The videos in these links are extremely violent, watch at your own risk!

Trans woman pleads for her life before being beaten to death

If there was ever a reason to avoid being transgender, now is the time. Well it has always been the time as throughout history transgender violence (also known as crossdressers/drag queens) has always been around, but as rare as it was back then because most people realize or know better to avoid transitioning. It was scarce even in the Biblical times as there wasn’t as many instances. Transgenders was barely a blip on the radar (less than most obscure diseases in the past) and whether or not they were a commonality back then it’s not the focus. The focus right now is that transgenders need therapy, not encouragement.

It’s so simple but somehow the transgender activism does a 180° and say that they need more protections. The most often quote they use is “the reason transgenders are suicidal and being murdered is because of discrimination”. It’s as if they are using that statement as a justification to continue pushing transgender ideology. But the bottom line is,

transgenders need therapy, not encouragement! This is the most effective way to stop the suicides and violence.

Transgender community hit hard by violence in U.S.

So yes, i put in bold, red letters that in another words, society needs to stop fighting over what protections transgenders need and demand that professionals stop encouraging these people to embrace “gender identity” and get to actually treating these people. It is sad, disturbing and pathetic that a group of individuals are deciding the fate of children when the violence against transgenders is extremely brutal.

When i say brutal, i don’t mean it’s nice like this,

(Warning don’t click on the videos if you can’t handle gory stuff!!!)

I mean brutal like this!
(Warning: If you want to keep your eardrums you’ll refrain from clicking this one!)

anyway, this is actually serious as the transgender activism continues to try to force people to accept transgenderism and the way people retaliate is murder, while most don’t resort to violence there’s still quite a few that are violent.

In my previous post, The insanity of transgender ideology; a two year old transgender this is a major problem that needs to be solved. While some people are saying ‘let live’ and the ‘lets not do anything but be nice’, that really isn’t curbing the violence.. spreading awareness is not helping any and neither is trying to make laws to protect transgenders (as shown with the U.S. that new anti-trans laws are being written on the regular basis), we as a society need to force professionals to rethink transitioning as treatment.

Because. It. Is. Not. Working!!

Talking to Your Kids About Transgenderism
Transgender student allegedly told ‘you’re not a girl’ by aide upset over bathroom use

Transitioning may solve the person’s gender confusion but it does not solve the risk of suicides, violence and murder. It only creates it. I was told, if something is not creating a result, meaning if you are not seeing a major impact, it means it’s not working. If it takes you 10 minutes to drill a hole, something is not right. Transgender activism has been trying to promote transgender children since the 90’s and it’s still not making a positive impact. Even much of what you see or hear on the news about transgender children living happy lives is not entirely true. Parents have to move, take their kids to a different school and try to hide the fact that their boy is really a girl.

This is when it’s a ‘more trouble than it’s worth’ situation and it’s not working. That’s when professionals have to rethink what treatments they are providing and come up with a much better solution that doesn’t involve transitioning, especially with children. That doesn’t mean reparative therapy is the only option, that only means there is another solution out there that doesn’t involve making others disgusted. Logically this shouldn’t be an issue, however this is an insane method from insane people.

In addition, here is more insanity if there was any more of a reason that transgenders need help, ‘I used to wish for cancer so I could get a mastectomy’: Transgender man reveals heartache ahead of surgery to have breasts removed

No seriously i wonder if it’s laziness, depression, tiredness or a simple case of idgaf because no one ever comes over. It’s not that bad now, i did clean it up to an acceptable point and i keep telling myself, this time it’ll work, but it ends up being..

How about no.jpg

because generally when i’m at work i’m thinking, today’s that day i’m going to clean…

messy-house

and it’s the usual excuse, i’m too tired. I’m also only home 2 days a week (because i stay at someones house during the weekday for work) so that is generally the culprit but no, even during the week i get lazy and ‘forget’. It wasn’t always like this, when i first moved in, i always kept it pretty clean though most of the stuff i have was still in the packing crates. And it would always get progressively worse. It generally happened during the holidays where i would just be too tired, because working in retail was too stressful,
Retail.jpg

but it turned into an everyday thing where it was easier to turn on a gaming system, computer or put on movies for the night than to pick up a broom and sweep. No one will care anyway right?

My apartments like to do a yearly inspection and not bother to tell you until a week (sometimes less, like 2 days).

really-bruh-2

So they’re not even in the same month range. It would make sense to do it during the yearly renewal but they seem to not always do that. So now it takes me scrambling to get the place clean because i fail at being proactive and just keep it clean to begin with. Seriously if i spend an hour cleaning a week i wouldn’t care. But it still is a problem where i’d only clean when someone is visiting. So other than me getting into the routine of, “i’m too tired/lazy to do it” i ponder whether or not the last girl i was interested in didn’t do something.

rejected

Yes, i was rejected and not only that i was completely fine with being friends which was my original intention but i had people going,
ask-her-out

which actually ruined any chances of being best friends with her, because she would always assume that was interested in her which i was but she didn’t need to know that and again was completely fine with being friends.
Friend-Zone-Memes-23.jpg

but again, that was perfectly fine if i was friendzoned, but i wasn’t just friendzoned, i was work-friendzoned. Anyway, i’m not looking for anyone nor i really want to find someone, which is another topic, Transgenders is a big reason i do not date or have a relationship so for the other major reason i do not date or am not in a relationship is because while rejection is a part of life, it’s not really something i am willing to put up with when i could be focusing on other stuff, like not cleaning the house…

funny-cat-lazy-human

So i’m going to have to come up with some sort of gameplan to keep my place clean and to avoid being lazy, tired or whatever. I doubt i am seriously depressed, maybe a touch of it but certainly not enough to really avoid doing housework. I got it done for now but i need to keep it clean and not cluttered.

Back in about 2015, Kenneth Zucker’s clinic was falsely accused and shut down, A False Accusation Helped Bring Down Kenneth Zucker, a Controversial Sex Researcher recently came out with a documentary, BBC’s Controversial Documentary on the Gender-Dysphoria Researcher Kenneth Zucker

Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best? (video only works in the UK)

If you can find the documentary, by torrent or by any other way get your hands on it because it shows there is again, a cure for gender dysphoria. It is a very good alternative to allowing your child to become transgender. Activists are upset that, Transgender activists concerned about film this film could increase discrimination against transgender people which is most likely true, but they are already facing high rates of discrimination overall. Even in the documentary, transgender activists do not like alternative therapy. In their mindset transitioning is the only cure/treatment and people need to live with it. They are also headstrung on allowing children to be transgender. But, it is not the best course of action. In the video, and by transgender activism it’s, let your child be transition or they die. Already people are scared to really speak up and really debate the transgender issue, more importantly transgender children. Recently Nat Geo showed a photo and released a magazine dedicated to transgender children. Already ACP, Pediatricians condemn National Geographic over 9-year-old ‘trans’ child on January cover has stated, College of Pediatricians Calls Transgender Ideology ‘Child Abuse’ is child abuse

With the constant negativity surrounding transgenders (only 22% support transgender rights in America) and transgender children we need people like Kenneth Zucker treating gender dysphoria in children properly. He takes a non invasive approach, “developmentally-informed therapy” and none of the kids hated going to see Dr. Zucker, in fact they thought it was quite pleasant. Nothing reparative or electroshocking here like so many transgenders fear. Those days are generally in the past although there may be some people who still practice conversion therapy today, just not in clinics. More like in a parents basement. Whatever the case is, conversion therapy doesn’t work. Transitioning doesn’t work either seeing how high the suicide rates are for transgenders. And the sad part is the transgender activism thinks they are actually helping out those with gender dysphoria but really it’s just a means to an end. In the documentary, 90% of those who went to Dr. Zucker for treatment came out cured. That’s really a big difference from say 50-60% success rate for transitioning treatments. Those that would not be, if going by the 1.4 million transgender statistics that would be, 140,000 Americans who will continue to struggle with gender dysphoria. But, if these 140,000 Americans were analyzed.. better treatments could work. But this greatly depends if any of them are intersex (which is a completely different condition and should not be associated with transgenders) and whether the survey is accurate.

So that 140,000 number could be different and could be very less or more depending on the circumstances. Whatever the case is 90% would not have to worry about being discriminated against. They would live out as their assigned birth gender and not have to worry about additional dating issues and having the proper documentation along with housing, job and family rejection. But the transgender activism won’t have it. We have to watch out for these types of people who are constantly one track minded telling people if they do not transition or if they do not let their children transition they will die. They will feel hopeless, deserted, depressed, anxiety and suicidal. As proven time and time again, transgenders will be depressed and suicidal regardless if they were allowed to be transgender. So the best method we have at this point is Kenneth Zucker’s form of treatment. With a 90% success rate over a 50-60%, that’s a 30-40% better chance with far better results. Already children have 90% chance of growing out of their gender dysphoria with Kenneth Zucker, that success rate will be higher. However, with the transgender activism running rampant (especially in Canada) that 90% chance of growing out will be reduced. By indulging in the child’s fantasy of being the wrong gender, they will grow up thinking that is their actual gender and go through with being transgender with hormone therapy.

As mentioned by others, transgender ideology is child abuse and it’s a mental illness that should be treated, not encouraged. However, transgender activists will continue to try to stop that and continue to fight for transgender rights, however it is the expense of children who have gender dysphoria that have a 40% suicide risk. Kenneth Zucker’s treatment is the most idealistic, ethical and logical method. We need more ethical doctors like Kenneth who is not afraid to stand up for what is right and moral. He does not willingly put children through harm and has a 90% success rate of curing gender dysphoria. Others like Walt Heyer and other ex-transgender people share a similar story that children should not be subjected to being transgender. Sorry transgender activists, but you do not have the right to meddle with children and force parents into accepting that their child is transgender. Transgender activists limit any alternative methods in gender dysphoria treatments and claim that transitioning is the only solution. That is called manipulation. I pray that more doctors such as Kenneth Zucker will continue to properly treat children who have gender dysphoria and we need better methods so that 100% of those that experience gender dysphoria can be treated and will eliminate or reduce discrimination.
