List of mayors who have announced they will not enforce Pritzker’s illegal ban on in-door dining:
Libertyville, Orland Park, Morton Grove, Itasca, East Peoria, Springfield
We don’t live in a dictatorship even though Pritzker has anointed himself one. Many courts have ruled against him, yet he continues to fail basic government: Call the legislature back in session so the people we elected have a voice in decisions. Make them pass Pritzker’s draconian shut-down orders. Pritzker has no authority but keeps pretending he does.
According to the Illinois Restaurant Association, 5000 eateries across Illinois have already closed permanently. Many more may be forced to go out of business because they are in Pritzker’s bulls-eye without any proof COVID cases originate in restaurants. They are merely easy targets.
Complying with whatever porky spews has nothing to do with safety. Obviously laws don’t matter when pretending to keep people safe. Meanwhile big businesses are experiencing the greatest ever transfer of wealth to them because they have never been shut down. The virus obviously isn’t spread at Walmart! COVID must be arriving here on Wednesday since that’s the day chubby picked. Until then restaurants are perfectly safe.
If Renner and Koos want to prove they aren’t anti-business, they would announce police will not enforce Pritzker’s illegal orders.
I predict they won’t. They are both democrats who believe in authoritarian government. Kneel serfs. Voting Democrat tomorrow? Why?
