Ain't got no safety anywhere!
Insane property rents, insane sales taxes.
No trust in any government.
Got no services for the lower class. Only stress and homelessness.
All because of the evil Todd Stroger.

I know how you feel. There are some places in the suburbs and the far southwest side of the city that are worth living in.

Could I suggest this? If you are thinking about moving, do not move anywhere else in this state; especially Will County. You will NOT like it there at all. Neither will you like runners up Grundy and Kankakee. Will County is the worst example of a liar I have ever heard of.

The county lies about its lower taxes, schools, school system, educational value, better ways of life, and scenery (which is mostly farm fields, prairies, and wide open country like down south and out west). Of all the places that are unlike Cook, Will County is the most overrated, stuck up, and dishonest county there is.

Will County either has places like Joliet's east side or pastel white or slightly more "diverse" towns like Beecher, Peotone, Monee, Frankfort, Mokena, etc. You're better off as a Hoosier or something.

Crook County is the absolute worst, my taxes just went up again. When are we as citizens going to stand up and put an end to this crap. It is disgusting how much we are taxed, and this state and county continually want more. I would move if not for my family. We have to pool some resources together and fight this! This rich politicians don't get it and they've got most of the poor people, busy people, and some just lazy people, fooled. I'm a middle class Hispanic and I work, and play by the rules, and it is getting me nowhere. I worked hard to pay down my mortgage for what? My net worth has dropped by 50% because of a poorly ran greedy government who now wants to give everything away.... while suckers like myself work extremely hard for what assets I have only to pay more taxes on them. What kind of bullcrap reward system is that!! This Country was built on if you work hard, you reap reward, benefit, and pride (all good things that come with an honest days work). If you sit on your butt all day, if you plan poorly for your future in the job market or for retirement you have only yourself to blame, not the world and certainly not the Rich! I grew up in Humboldt Park area and I never expected hand outs from the government things I wanted I went out and worked hard for and so should the rest of the world. Also this county and state needs to get their heads out of their asses and stop stealing from us I'm tired of working, taking my one step forward only to see this government push me three steps BACK!
