Suburban Life Sound Off: Nov. 20-26

What's up with late mail deliveries?

What's going on with the Downers Grove postal delivery? We've lived here over 40 years in a single-family home in the Randall Park neighborhood, and this year, we're not getting our mail delivered until after 7 or 8 o'clock at night. What's up?

Make politicians the ones to pay

Instead of laying off all these people and raising the fees on the buses and everything else, why don't you take the politicians and let them take a cut in their pay? They make more than most of us are making. I don't think it's right.

Response to 'Let Trump run the country'

Who is stopping him? He is too busy tweeting about the NFL players or starting altercations with the father of one of the UCLA basketball players that he claims that he alone got them released from a China prison, practically demanding he be thanked! Plus, tweeting childish slurs to the leader of North Korea! Is he hoping for a war to have us all destroyed?

Can't afford more real estate tax

Once again, the Democratic Party of Chicago, Cook County, raising real estate taxes – tax on telephone 911 to almost $5 a month per phone. I think it's time for a forensic audit to find out where all the money is being spent. Going to take a lot of middle-management jobs, sweetheart contracts. The taxpayers cannot afford this any longer. ... A happy Thanksgiving to all the taxpayers of Cook County. God bless America.

Illinois residents getting robbed

If the new tax cuts are approved by the U.S. Congress, Illinois residents will no longer be able to deduct state and local taxes. This will hit us right between the eyes in Illinois because yes, we have an Illinois income tax, and yes, it [was] increased from 3 percent to 4.9 percent. So, not only do our state income taxes go up, but they can't be deducted. Somehow that's supposed to be just ginger-peachy because we will be able to prepare our own tax returns on a postcard without having to pay an accountant. Regardless of how the story is twisted, we are still getting robbed. And on top of this, the same politicians who are robbing us are in the news for groping women and abusing children.
