All day with no Internet! It’s finally back.
The link below is a Letter to the Editor written by Jim Simeone:
The letter attempts to counter the letter written by Guy Fraker titled Renner’s Actions are Disgraceful: https://blnnews.com/2018/02/17/if-you-dont-get-the-paper/
The letter fails miserably at defending Renner, it mostly claims his antics were fine because he wanted to “move the process along”. Guy Fraker called Renner’s behavior immature, embarrassing, and disgraceful.
Ol’e Jimmy failed to mention one thing in his letter. He is a professor of Political Science at Illinois Wesleyan University, same department as Tari Renner! https://www.iwu.edu/political-science/faculty/JamesSimeone.html
It could be called cowardice on the part of at least one council member who pretended to support the Welcoming Ordinance and is now one of the five blocking the vote. Jimmy should have taken that angle instead of pretending Renner’s childish tantrums were justified.
If you plan to attend the 2nd Amendment Rights Rally on Sunday and can’t think of something good to put on a sign – I’ve got lots of good ideas. Bring a blank sign and markers and create it there!
Gary Grasso is 1000 times more qualified to be Illinois Attorney General than Erika Herald. If you are voting in the GOP primary, he’s the obvious pick. On the Democrat side, former governor Pat Quinn is running in the primary. The GOP needs a candidate with experience and plans to fight corruption. Grasso is the guy.
If you are delusional enough to think taking guns from law-abiding citizens will stop mass killings, read this story: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/25/tokyo-knife-attack-stabbing-sagamihara
A man who claimed he wanted to kill disabled people left at least 19 dead and 26 others injured after a knife attack at a care facility in Japan.
Guns are just one tool some criminals choose to use, it’s not the only tool available. Evil will always exist, the best defense is to be ready to defend yourself.
This sign can get you killed:
