Eight is Enough

The Eightfold WayIs there anyone who doesn't love to hate Joe Walsh, the Ex Eighth District Congressman and next Chairman of the Illinois GOP? Count in the Illinois Review -- where Walsh recently posted an Internet Top Ten List. Walsh listed eight simple steps that will save Illinois:
  1. Eliminate the individual state income tax and the state corporate tax.
  2. Give every parent in the state a school voucher to send their children to whatever school they want to send them to — public, private, religious, or home.
  3. Place every government employee on a defined contribution, 401(k) style retirement plan.
  4. Begin immediately tapping into our natural gas and oil reserves.
  5. Eliminate township governments.
  6. Give every law-abiding adult the right to carry a concealed weapon.
  7. Have a federal prosecutor investigate how Michael Madigan and his legal clients have benefited financially at taxpayer expense from his role as Speaker.
  8. Tell Judy Barr [sic] Topinka to retire.
Walsh: How To Save Illinois in Eight Simple Steps
Sharpeyed operatives may observe that Walsh -- who enjoys a reputation for being a day late and a dollar short -- could only come up with 8 items for his Top 10 List.

It's no exaggeration to say your LakeCountyEye knows a thing or two about Internet Top Ten Lists. Like a check lost in the mail, here are the two last simple steps that Walsh neglected to provide:
