This Hound went to the liquor emporium on Labor Day to pick up a six-pack to take to a Labor Day barbecue. What a shock! The premium brew manufactured on an island in Chicago was $8.99. Yikes! At that price, The Hound is thinking low-end brewski.
Unlike most of you, this Hound did not stock up before the big Sept. 1 price increases on liquor, wine, beer, candy, pop and toothpaste. The state increased the tax on candy 525 percent! If this was beer, we'd be in the street and at the barricades.
When are we going to learn about Illinois government, and not in poly sci class? The local lawmakers to the county to the state keep on taxing and spending, taxing and spending. It's enough to make one want to move to Wisconsin. Wait, much of our industry already has!
