Basketball crowd lets Pat Quinn know how we all really feel about him
ELDORADO—At the basketball Sectionals at Duff Kingston Gym in Eldorado Saturday, 03.03.12, Illinois governor Pat Quinn showed up….and received a well-deserved welcome in response.
The game Quinn attended, which started at 2 p.m., was between Harrisburg and Pinckneyville. When it was announced that Quinn was present, everyone in the crowd—especially the Pinckneyville attendees—booed him mercilessly.
It was speculated that Pinckneyville was especially annoyed at Quinn and his presence because they have a prison that Quinn is threatening to shut down, which would result in a massively negative economic effect on the entire county there.
Harrisburg, by the way, won the game and will be going to Bloomington for the Super Sectionals in the coming week.
Quinn was grandstanding yesterday, taking the opportunity to show the citizens of downstate—who overwhelmingly didn’t want him as governor in 2010, but the rest of the state could not out-vote the welfare slugs in the two metropolitan areas of Illinois that constantly carry the socialist candidates, Chicagoland and Metro-East St. Louis—that he cared about them and what they’ve been going through. Of course, if he REALLY cared about us, he wouldn’t have imposed more taxes upon us last year (which REALLY pinches those of us who manage small businesses….I do the books here; I can attest to that). Or any number of other inflation tax-like moves that put the burden directly on the middle class, who are quickly becoming a slave class to the minority elite (employees on the taxpayer teat, like Quinn) and the majority subsidized (welfare recipients as well as corporate welfare suckers, like farm subsidy recipients). But I digress.
In one amusing anecdote from yesterday, Quinn was glad-handing the sea of purple at the first Human Shield event at Reed’s Funeral Chapel. He shook the hands of many of the little pseudo-reporters in line where Jack was getting photos, and worked his gubernatorial way up….until he got to Jack, whom he gazed at for a second before skipping completely and moving on to a subsequent pseudo reporter. Guess he somehow figured out Jack was a publisher and a journalist as opposed to a reporter. Whatever the case, it was comical. Of course, many of my sources have since sent me messages that Quinn is lately being rumored to be of the homosexual inclination. One sources said maybe Quinn wasn’t giving Jack a sneer, but was instead giving him a leer. I responded that that was entirely possible; Jack wouldn’t know the difference, as that’s obviously not his ‘thing.’
Regardless of our governor’s orientation, at least a wide swath of Saline and surrounding counties let him know what we think of his POLICIES, which are ruining us. Keep that in mind come next year, when the quest for a governor who can put us on the road to decency and perhaps restore dignity to our state, begins.
