WANTED: reliable used car

Friends in Woodstock are looking for a used car in good condition. Age doesn't matter, but mechanical condition does.

Your good used car will find a happy, considerate home, and it will not be driven at the stock car races on Sundays or at any demolition derby at the McHenry County Fair.

They are not looking for a "clunker" or anything that will need repairs every month.

Maybe a car sitting in a garage, just because the family didn't want to let it go in an Estate sale?

If you have one or know of one, please contact me and I'll pass along the information. Thanks.

Why I detest the Obamas

Obamas have taken full advantage of all entitlements of office, while many in this country are standing in welfare lines. Take a look. Tell me it's not so. And within just the past few days I read what Obama's taxpayer-fueled vacations have cost in 2016. Disgusting.

How things have changed! If you're one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of "Ms. Michelle" are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by YOU.

Yes…… The Canadian Free Press had to publish this, perhaps because America no longer has a free press and the USA media is too scared that they might be considered racist.

Grab your wallets!!! Obamacare premiums, going up!

Obamacare premiums are somewhat like elevators. They go up. But they don't go down.

How could Congress be so stupid and fall for the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare. Obama and Pelosi really did a number on the American people. Remember when Pelosi said that Congress would have to sign the bill in order to find out what was in it?

Well, what do you expect from someone from California???

What did the New York Times have to say on August 12, 2016? See this article about the cost of expanding Obamacare for the Medicaid population. Said the NYT, "In a recent report to Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the cost of expansion was $6,366 per person for 2015, about 49 percent higher than previously estimated." (emphasis added)

Socialism at its best, eh, for all your Bernie fans. I read a definition recently that Socialism is Communism without the guns.

How come I, as a former insurance agent, knew that Obamacare wasn't going to work? Why couldn't Congress figure it out? You just can't insure people who are sick and old and uninsured for the same premium cost as you insure healthy, younger people who can otherwise qualify for insured at standard or lower rates.

A fifth-grader could have told members of Congress that it wasn't going to work out financially.

Gun laws too lax?

Milwaukee's Mayor Tom Barrett is an idiot. "The gun laws are too lax in this state right now." That's the reason for the riots in Milwaukee that left five dead?

"No, Tom! It's the criminals who have guns because existing laws are not enforced."

But Uncle Tom will want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens as a solution. Illinois residents along the Illinois-Wisconsin "border" should join, an organization that actually does something to improve matters for responsible gun-owners.

And call or otherwise contact Barrett to tell him how wrong he is.

Phone: 414-286-2200
Fax: 414-286-3191 

Look at the photos of the senseless burning and rioting. You can bet that Jesse Jackson will show up, and that Louis Farrakhan will, too. Will they calm things or make things worse?

Wisconsin is a state with open carry and concealed carry. Looks like law-abiding residents are going to need all the protection they can muster.

Drink up. It's Prim Time

Did you see Bill Prim's first ad for his re-election campaign?

Really great. Right? Is he trying to drum up a little business for the county's DUI officers?

Who do you suppose is advising him? The left-over deputies from the Nygren regime? As I recall, a number of them had a lot of experience with steins and schooners, especially at the old Red Mill in Woodstock and at that tavern out on Washington Street near Highway 14.

Is there a better theme for a fundraiser than drinking yourself under the table, trying to get your money's worth?

Prim's invitation suggests it's a celebration of his mid-term successes. Just what "successes" has he had since becoming Sheriff? Any? It seems to me that he has kept a very low profile and avoids the news. I always thought he ought to re-open the Feldkamp/Bloom case and conduct a through investigation of the crime. It certainly wasn't done the first time around.

Wouldn't it be nice if McHenry County had a sheriff like Sheriff David E. Clarke, Jr. of Milwaukee County, Wisc. or Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona or any one of other Arizona sheriffs or sheriffs in the South who are willing to stand up and speak out about preservation of Second Amendment rights and protection of the USA?

Do you know how many illegal aliens there are in McHenry County? 10,-12,000 maybe? What is Prim doing about taking them into custody and getting them out of McHenry County?

What's the deal at the County Jail? What's the bed count now from rentals and ICE usage? Has he been successful in keeping the beds rented out for the income to meet the financing deal? Has he unloaded the top-heavy supervisor load and put more deputies out on the road? Has he eliminated the "special" units (small group of "elite" deputies with a supervisor)? Has he increased security in the courtrooms and hired able-bodied courtroom security officers, not left-over, over-weight, tired retirees (friends) from area departments?

Why is my attitude toward Prim what it is? It stems from a meet-and-greet for him when he was running in 2012, and he was rude to me because of his understanding of my views about militarization of the Sheriff's Department. He didn't ask me what my views were or why. His only comment to me was, "Oh, you're the guy who doesn't like militarization."

Is somebody going to run against Prim in the Republican Primary in February 2018? I hope so.

Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. Government

Here's a video that is absolutely riveting and worth 30 minutes of your time.  Philip Haney, a former analyst at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is co-author of See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad.

At the National Press Club shortly after the Orlando shootings Haney explains the network of Islamic influence and terrorists that is allowed to exist right here in the United States. Are you concerned about the "deep penetration of the U.S. Government by Muslim Brotherhood operatives"?

Haney accuses officials in our Government of this: performance that is "well below minimally adequate in terms of level of responsibility" and "abrogation of duty of elected officials".

Haney explains, "The real nature of the Islamic threat: 'It's not jihad. Sharia! Jihad is a tactic, and Sharia law is the strategy, and we are fighting tactics when we don't understand the strategy, and we are doomed to fail every time.' "

Regarding the upcoming election (November 2016), ask yourself: "Who is more likely to stand up for the values of the U.S. Constitution. That's the basis you should use in evaluating ... candidates."

Watch the beginning of the meeting, where panel members are identified. The full Press Club meeting can be viewed here:  Haney is the first speaker.

This attorney is sickening

The Chicago Tribune is showing now the dashcam and bodycam recordings of CPD cops involved in the attempted capture of car thief Paul O'Neal, age 18 on July 28. O'Neal was shot while eluding Chicago cops in a stolen Jaguar on Chicago's southside.

Says O'Neal family attorney Michael Oppenheimer, "Paul's O'Neal's Constitutional rights were violated in the most egregious way. Officers played judge, jury and executioner to decide their own sense of justice."

What kind of puke is Attorney Oppenheimer? He's just putting on a good show for the family. You can expect Rahm Emanuel and Chicago to cave in and fork over $4,-5,000,000. And Oppenheimer will walk away with 40%. Pretty good payday for a big mouth on TV.

The attorney and the family watched "the execution of their loving son..." I guess he wouldn't be the family's attorney very long if he told them, "Your son was a criminal. That's what happens when you do stupid stuff."

And the idiot female reporter for CBS-TV in Chicago stressed in her report that O'Neal was "unarmed". She went on to say that all three officers involved "were stripped of their powers..."  What kind of stupid is that reporter? CBS-TV should immediately fire Audrina Bigos!!!

And be sure to read the dumb statement by the CPD Independent Police Review Authority. The jerk in charge of that ought to be fired!

Let's see, O'Neal was a car thief. He tried to run down cops. He was driving a stolen car. He fled on foot. Yeah, that family lost a "loving son." Sure they did...

Rahm Emanuel will never halt crime by punks in Chicago with that kind of leadership.

How about trying this on for size? "You don't commit crimes. You don't get shot."

Read this vet's letter

This letter from U.S. Marine and Navy veteran Chris Mark deserves a tip of the hat. He takes off on Khizr Khan, father of deceased Capt. Humayun Khan The father took off on Donald Trump from the stage of the DNC.

Chris Mark is sensitive to the family's loss of their son, a man who, in my book, does deserve the Hero status.

Trump does run off at the mouth too often for my taste, but the bad taste left in my mouth at just the thought of Hillary Clinton and Bill anywhere near the White House is far, far worse.

And I won't waste my time reading whatever it was that John McCain had to say.
