    Judge mchaney speaks his mind in friday afternoon case- IL Judge

    After ruling on Toilets Pritzker's shutdown order, he says it eloquently:


    https://www.thevillagersvoice.com/ju...fternoon-case/
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    I believe this pandemic needed a serious response; the risk of experiencing what Italy went through was very real. But I completely agree with that judge. When there's one set of rules for the governors family, and another for the rest of the citizenry, they are being ruled.

    Maybe we'll get lucky and he will run for President sometime after Trump? He is spot on.

    I saw the press briefing that governor gave to "his" people. When he said only 2 in a boat he was asked by the press, "What happens to a family of 4? Can they use the boat together?"......His response was NO! They can only have 2 at a time. I am sure if I was there I would have yelled BULLSH#T......
