“But when Herod was dead, behold an angel of the Lord appears in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, Arise and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead that sought the young child’s life” (Matthew 2:19-20).
Mary and Joe beat it to Egypt, because Planned Parenthood of Roman Occupied Judea allowed Herod to kill babies. Things are pretty bad in Illinois, many Mary and Joe couples have already beat it to Wisconsin and Indiana. Our home grown Herod is the Guv, in Planned Parenthood/SEIU and IPI occupied Illinois. I wish him a very long, happy, healthy and quiet life out of office.
Gov. Pat Quinn is a gifted ninny. He is gifted by those who stick Holy Writ, or Papal Remarks under his schnozola and read the words to him.
Yesterday's State of the State stem-winder was completely Quinn-worthy.
Illinois is back! Repeating exactly what Quinn mouthed last year. Quinn has succeeded only in getting business to leave Illinois quicker than a pewful of folks stuck behind a wildly flatulent worshiper. Quinn has re-defined marriage as he commanded to do by Personal PAC. Other than that?
- Illinois public schools continue to stink on ice.
- College grads can't find work in Illinois
- Nanny State laws pour forth every News Years Day
- Bridges crumble
- Potholes proliferate
- Grain prices drop
- The Coal industry shrinks
- The governor belittles the religious
- The continuing erasing of the Illinois Middle Class
Quinn, who is Catholic, quoted scripture and popular new Pope Francis in setting his priorities. But the speech only occasionally drew measured applause, though Democratic lawmakers clapped when he called for increasing the minimum wage. Republicans remained silent through most of the 40-minute speech, short compared to some of the governor’s earlier efforts.
Quinn first proposed hiking the state minimum wage during his address a year ago, but the effort didn’t gain much traction. He’s hoping for an election-year boost this time around as President Barack Obama and Democrats across the country also push the issue in the mid-term elections.
