Memorial Day is day to honor soldiers who who died in the service of our country so that we could remain a free people. Unfortunately, if you live in Illinois, you have lost your rights as citizen of this country giving them to Dictator Pritzker who is now ruling the state with an iron hand by executive orders. The members of the Illinois House and Senate should be ashamed of themselves since they have abdicated their duties to the citizens of this State. Fortunately, it appears there is one Clay County, Illinois Circuit Judge who is not afraid to be critical of the despotic tactics of Dictator Pritzker. His opinion should be wake-up call to the citizens of this State. The Judge states the following in his opinion about the defendant, Governor Pritzker:
The defendant in this case orders you to stay home and pronounces that, if you leave the state, you are putting people in danger, but his family members traveled to Florida and Wisconsin because he deems such travel essential. One initial rationale why the rules don’t apply to him is that his family family farm had animals that needed fed. Try selling that argument to farmers who have had to slaughter their herds because of disruption in the supply chain.
When laws do not apply to those who make them, people are not being governed, they are being ruled. Make no mistake, these executive orders are not laws. They are royal decrees. Illinois citizens are not being governed, they are being ruled. The last time I checked Illinois citizens are also Americans and Americans don’t get ruled. The last time a monarch tried to rule Americans, a shot was fired that was heard around the world.
Illinois Governor Pritzker has implemented extensive rules for those who want to golf in the State of Illinois. One of the rules is that you cannot use power carts, and pull carts cannot be rented. You may bring your own pull carts, and the Governor has suggested that players use garbage cans to haul their clubs around the courses. As a service to our clients, we have extra garbage cans available for use by our clients as golf carts. In accordance with our office procedures, the carts have been sanitized and are certified COVID-19 free. See you on the course!
Illinois’ Governor Pritzker with his latest Order, known as Pritzker’s Destroy Illinois Order, retains most restrictions on the daily activities of the citizens of Illinois indefinitely. Many businesses, including restaurants, might as well close permanently. To Governor Pritzker and his friend, the Chicago Mayor, we say enough is enough. Mr. Governor, there appears to be two sets of rules in the State of Illinois, one for your family with its billions and the ruling elite, including the Mayor of Chicago, and the other for the hard-working citizens of this state whose businesses you are destroying.
