  1. Geeez with all those slot machines, video gaming etc why the hell are our taxes so high!?

    McHenry County is slowly turning into a cesspool.

    You can’t turn around without seeing these things even in the ‘family restaurants’ or what used to be considered family establishments.

  2. Are these politicians allowed to use their money raised at their own fundraisers to pay the entrance to others?

    I just don’t understand the need for so many, especially those not even running for current office.
