  1. Spent a year working in Chicago and told my company I'd quit rather than be assigned there again. I've worked in 17 different countries and there are too many areas of Chicago as bad as any 3rd world country.
    Remember, Democrats have had a total lock on policies for over 50 years and it shows.

  2. Let's be perfectly clear. It's not "Illinois", it is the greater Chicago metropolis area. Both Chicago and New York City run the states they are in and that is backwards. Also, these to cities have been massively corrupt since the mid 1800's and have never been "cleaned up".

  3. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 6:47 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."

  4. Businesses everywhere are leaving liberally run state's. At this rate we should just divide the country in half and let the Democrats drown in their own policies.

  5. When the South starts having water shortages they’re gonna miss NY and Northern States. Cali is meh but yeah they’re gonna feel it.

  6. “Caterpillar is moving to Texas.”

    “About 250 jobs will move to Texas. The other 17,000 will remain in Chicago.”

    Really buried the lede there in order to squeeze out a story. Come on, guys.

  7. People are leaving Chicago due to all the librarians who are completely out of control. Nobody is safe with these librarians who are on every corner, every block, and everywhere descent hard working responsible people congregate, just waiting to rob you or worse. Mostly worse.

  8. CAT going to a backward state. But “leaving” almost 18,000 jobs in Illinois. To those high priced exec’s enjoy the backward society and 120° summer days in texASS. Oh, by the way, buy giant generators for the HQ and your mansions when the Republic’s power shuts down.

  9. When California is perpetually on fire, NYC and Florida are under water, and Texas turns into the Handmaids Tale, Chicago will be the place to move.
    Sounds crazy now but give it 10 years.

  10. Actually from 1976 to 1981 I work there, after the 80s they went from like 15,000 employees to I don’t know like 5000 they closed tons of buildings in East Peoria Illinois because I used to work in them so they’ve been leaving Illinois for a very long time. My father worked there 30 years but he died in 1982,

  11. I wouldn't worry much about it. Chicago is always going to remain a high value place due to the financial markets, strategic location, etc. Will always be a net positive.

    Chicago never made sense for Boeing anyway. They've turned into a poorly run company after the financial people took over from the engineers. Witness the Max debacle.

  12. Don’t forget the employees moving to the Red States with these companies are highly educated. It is highly unlikely that they are going to vote for a Republican 😝. As we all know , education is not a Republican thing 😝. Buckle up Neanderthal Republicans. Once you lose Texas , there is no Republican Party in America which we all are wishing for 😆.

  13. >Leftoids tax these companies to death, demonize them 24/7 and do nothing about crime
    Leftoids: wHy aRe tHeSe cOrPoRaTiOnS lEaViNg oUr CeSsPoOl oF a sTaTe??

  14. Illinois just needs to reduce its property and state taxes. I enjoy the climate (true four seasons) more than the in the South, and it has more affordable real estate. Texas has built too many cookie-cutter suburban houses that are over valued and therefore big hits on property taxes.
