I hate this fat big governor. “Stop trying to find a flaw in the data,” Pritzker said. “Bars and restaurants are top places where spreading takes place” GO F YOURSELF

Prissy doesn’t have constitutional authority to do this, nor do the local officers.

There’s no “law.” Governors can’t just order everyone to sing 20 times a day while standing on their hands, either.

Back in the day there were those who hung from trees for this type of overreaching behavior.

May be a good time to stock up on rope.

In government lingo “Reasonable belief exists” translates to “We don’t have any solid proof but we are too lazy to do the necessary research to find any.”

Big tyrants (governors) breed little tyrants (mayors; county commissioners) which in turn breed tiny tyrants (unelected bureaucrats/"health officials"). Constitutional rights and humane treatment of the people of their state means nothing -- nothing -- to these vile punks.

The DuPage Board pretty much told Governor Creosote to go jump in a lake. The Health Department was directed to do nothing unless a formal written complaint is filed. Then the business gets a visit and a written warning but there’s no civil penalty at all unless and until the Health Dept calls the local PD or County Sheriff.

The Sheriff has already said he’s not enforcing this garbage and most of the Police Chiefs have said the same thing.

The ILL State Supreme Court is so corrupt and controlled, the suit would have to to way up to SCOTUS.

And all open at the same time. Massive defiance is the only way to stop this bullshit.

According to Illinois Law, no business can be shut down without a court order. FACT.

I keep wondering where ALL of the lawsuits are, against these tyrannical Govs....by these business owners.

NY groupd finally banded together and filed suit, against CommieCuomo, but I’m not sure where that has gone.

Potato Shak in Loves Park...Hoffman House

Potato Shak is a GREAT place, and mostly take-out! What did they ever do to anybody?! The Hoffman House is one of the few places in Rockford that has pretensions of fine dining. Their prime rib is okay. They are also one of the few places that can handle special events. It is part of the Holiday Inn.

Illinois has gone crazy. All Rockford will have left are cannibis joints and Molly's Slots.
