Hide Away In Rockford

This amuses me - maybe this is what we need to increase our tourism industry - more stupid elected officials to flee the jurisdiction and boost the economy in other regions. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwcVHyk3FBE

Props to Rockford for turning it into a positive - anywhere else we should turn into a fugitive senator/representative tourist economy?

  • Ok, that's just awesome. Although Rick Nielsen should probably go hide in Wisconsin after he made that comment about his wife's cooking.

  • Have you been to Rockford? It is hardly a destination. There is much more to do in Chicago

  • You can't keep an American down. Give us lemons, or runaway legislatures, and we make lemon aid.

  • I have lots of family in Rockford. I love the city. My mother grew up there, and we spent many Thanksgivings and Christmases at my grandparents' house. In fact, I'm related to Rick Nielsen by marriage. His wife is one of my mother's cousins. Not that it has anything to do with this question. . . but I'm not sure what the question is, to be honest.

    Next time, you should at least pretend to watch the video first lest you make an ass of yourself.
