Sears Holdings Corp. rattled Illinois officials Tuesday when it announced, less than two weeks after getting state tax breaks worth $150 million, that it planned to close more than 100 Sears and Kmart stores.

Illinois is basically a red state with a huge blob of blue in the northeast corner. Chicago needs to turn it around.

The only place Sears is moving is into the history books. That company is toast.

Jim Cramer was all gung ho for Sears in January, 2008 when price was around $150 a share.

I hope Cramer is entertaining because he isn't good at his job.

Boils my blood. Sears is the last company to deserve tax breaks. They screwed the residents of Hoffman Estates and associated school districts for over 20 years, they get millions more, and then they essentially **** on it. They'll go bankrupt within 5 years, and quite frankly, they deserve it.

Oh and plwhit, this has nothing to do with Obama.

What happened?

but, but, but....I thought lavishing tax breaks on the wealthy was supposed to magically cause them to create more jobs?

So much for that nonsense. They'll create more jobs alright....in China and Mexico.
