So the state can start enacting laws banning or requiring certain behaviors then allow citizens to circumvent the law with a large enough cash payment?



Does anyone else see this as the tip of the iceberg?

Isn't that how it's always worked in DC?

If I recall, it has also been proven to work in Chicago.



Think of Chicago as the Minor League to DC.

I'm in Seattle, telecommuting to Michigan. I'm working in a startup that's just starting out, and things are picking up, I'm going to start needing to hire people, and it's tough to do development management remotely. Nothing is for certain though.



On the plus side real-estate is cheap as hell there.

Really. What's someone from Chicago got to say about anyone else?



Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tanks of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.



Jake: Hit it.

Keep in mind that you're calling that a plus BEFORE you've bought. Once you're here and paying taxes, things may look different.



Of course, you might snag a nice lakefront cottage that hasn't yet been pancaked so a 6,000 sf McMansion can go up in its place...

No the pols in DC just exempt themselves from the law right from the start.
