for coming to Carpentersville and hearing our complaints and wishes for not only Carpentersville, but for all of Illinois. Of course, a lot of the conversation had to do with the huge budget crisis that Illinois is facing and the taxes that are being raised on the struggling families who live in Carpentersville. Village President Ed Ritter asked Mr. Farnham, “Why can’t Illinois just cut spending 5% across the board?”
proclaimed Americans as LAZY and so are their children! What made Mr. Ritter say something so horrible and UN-AMERICAN? Well, as usual, when you have Carpentersville’s eastside residents together in one room, the subject of illegal aliens comes up. A resident asked what can be done with a revolving door of illegal aliens who live next door to him. He stated that at least 9 Hispanics live there on a rotating basis, with loud music and cars constantly coming and going. Other residents chimed in, including Trustee Judy Sigwalt about the effects of illegal aliens on Carpentersville and elsewhere. Village President Ed Ritter had enough of all this finger-pointing and blaming illegal aliens, so he decided to reprimand the audience, sort of like in School when a teacher feels that his students are starting to get carried away. Here’s where it gets kind of scary, sort of like when your a kid and a teacher uses his/her position to intimidate and shames you into being silent.
He first said that Americans [We all believed he meant Caucasians] would rather be on unemployment than work. He further stated that Americans don’t want to work for 12 dollars an hour. This made several people to yell SHAME! A resident behind me said what 12 dollar an hour jobs? Maybe 9 dollar an hour jobs! Mr. Ritter then came up with an example, he told us that his 24 year old daughter has a friend who never held a job in her life! Then he continued ranting about how he read a study that if the State of Arizona was able to get rid of their 400,000 illegal aliens, that Arizona would become BANKRUPT! AND he continued with another diatribe that we should be careful for what we wish for! Oh my Mr. Ritter, Carpentersville would probably go BANKRUPT, if Carpentersville loses it’s illegal aliens too. Tell you what Mr. Ritter, why don’t we raise a new flag at Village Hall.
This way we can start attracting more illegal aliens to Carpentersville. AND, we’ll get rid of the rest of those lazy and pesky Americans who reside on the eastside!
