man, I'm glad I never clicked on this one until just now. Skipped straight to page 5, typical responses. Blue guys, close the state, red guys/orange guys open the state.

Personally I'll follow Digital Underground's advice.............Do Whatcha Like.

Stop arguing on here like you'll change someone's opinion. You won't ever. And you're not right. None of you. Except me. I'm always all right all right all right. Cheers guys!

Politics gets people worked up. You're right, it should be left alone. Man enough to apologize for that too. I plan on it moving forward. Sometimes I let myself get away from myself a little bit. Happens to the best of us ;)

Never been pro Pritzker that I remember. Illinois politicians all always suck, for the most part. All politicians do for that matter. And I'm sure it's McDonalds and Jack Daniels. Lol. Who is IL tall skinny man in this scenario, though? Obama? I was pro-Obama. Was never pro-Pritzker though.

Ok I’ll chime in one more time. Here is a response to a similar thread I am following on another site.

This "emergency" was only a trial run, the next one could very well be the real deal. They have affirmed the fact that shredding the Constitution is okay with a majority of citizens in a time of "crisis" and they see that said citizenry will stand in line to be microchipped in exchange for toilet paper, grovel at the feet of so-called experts and that the media is in their hip pocket. The stage is set in the next crisis for a ruler who will be portrayed as a compassionate genius with all the answers.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

I hope what they're saying is true, I think alot of it is and alot is exaggerated to prove their point. When they eased up on social distancing too soon during the 1918 "spanish" flu, the second wave was worse than the first. As someone on here said, its more of a soft lockdown anyhow so you either want to err on the side of caution or you don't.

^^^ Mike I hear you, many are still butthurt about the 2016 election. I don't remember this political nonsense when I first joined in 9 years ago. Maybe Jason, Matt, basscaster, Ron, yourself or other senior members can share insights if things were that partisan back then. I remember when O got re-elected in 2012 I think many kept things to themselves and carried on with fishing related posts.

First O election got a little crazy at times but was not too bad overall. I love talking politics but I don't participate much in it online. Kinda pointless arguing with strangers or acquaintances. Everyone has a different story or life experience which guides them to their beliefs. I think it is shallow to discredit someone for what they believe without ever walking in their shoes. I would much rather discuss things in person in the proper setting.

When half the country is watching the media soap opera, taking it seriously, and arguing about shooting up household disinfectant it's the people's fault not the leadership. The whole country is built around the concept the leadership will inevitably become corrupt or incompetent. It's failing because that is happening to the citizens. Turn off the TV.

If you need some Prevacid for your heartburn, you better grab it now before the hoarding hysteria starts. You heard it here first. I guess they are finding it works well when used with the aquarium cleaner medicine. Studies are underway...

BREAKING!: Remember the "dunce" who drank the koi pond cleaner? Full blown investigation is going on now for homicide, and it looks like he was likely deliberately poisoned by his lovely wife. The guy was an engineer for John Deere and probably not so stupid after all. She has a wonderful past including even beating the poor man with a bird cage. Keep an eye on this one. Gotta love the fake news and all those that repeat it. --TDS

According to the borderline far-right biased National Review? Come on Ron. You're better than this. I already recommended you stop pulling your news from trash sites. This has nothing to do with fake news. There was nothing fake about it... and "likely deliberately poisoned"?? An investigation just started lol. Again, you're better than this. This has nothing to do with TDS, btw.

Not a single other news site is reporting on this, so I'll wait, and not jump to crazy conclusions.


To be fair S&E, it actually WAS reported in the days following the event by a couple of (slanted) obscure sources, along with their history of political/campaign contributions, which I wont mention where they contributed(public record, fact, not subject to manipulation or interpretation). The whole thing was beyond sketchy from the get-go. Even sketchier was the MSM's reporting of them being Trump supporters, when in fact public record shows their contributions were anything but that!
Tonight was the 1st time I saw it picked up by any of the MSM networks, though. Sounds like quite a story if the reports have any ring of truth to them. I, like you, will wait before drawing conclusions. Theyre all full of sh*t!

Haha I tried to delete it to avoid too much political talk. I think it was fine to post about it, but throwing in the "likely deliberately killed", fake news stuff, and the TDS stuff was just over the top IMO. I deleted it because I'm not sure how to take Ron's posts in this thread. Lol. I don't know when he's being serious, when he's pointing out silliness, etc.

It doesn't matter who is reporting this, there is a homicide investigation going on, confirmed by the po po. The investigation is aimed on the crazy wife who is blaming the orange man for them drinking poison, giddily amplified by the MSM. I heard of it on the news, searched and saw reporting of it on at least 5 news sites. I have no idea who the National Review is. So what if they are "right winged"? Everything else is just the opposite.

It's May in Illinois. Don't forget your mask. I went to both Walmart and Target today. Both stores had guards at the entrance and would not admit anyone with a mask. I wouldn't mess with the old biddy at Walmart who I saw chase a guy away.

I disagree with him. There are many "freedoms" that we have given up because of the common good. Think of all the rules and laws we must follow in order to protect ourselves and to protect others from us. This is no different. I support our elected officials that look at statistics and listen to the experts rather than those that make decisions based only on the economy and their odds of reelection.

None of them have been taken from you or anyone else. Can you tell me which freedoms were taken away? You can choose to go out wherever you want, whenever you want, can choose to voice your opinion, hell, you can even lead an armed protest at a Capitol building if you desire. No one is forcing you to stay home, and no one is forcing you not to see family, friends, or anyone else. There are very few places, if any, enforcing any kind of stay at home order with police action.

I can get in my car right now and drive around, go fishing, go see my family, go see a friend, meet up at a restaurant and order carry out and sit and eat it in the parking lot. I can go to the store, and buy whatever I want. I can take my dogs or new baby for a walk. Yep, had my baby son a week ago today :)

I'm pretty much able to do what I want, except gather in huge groups at sports games or bars. Things I couldn't care less about to begin with. There are common sense things that shouldn't be done right now, for the good of the world, but that's really about it.

I can’t go to church it’s prohibited. I can’t go out at night again it is prohibited. I’m told what to wear when I go out and if I don’t have the proper clothing(mask) then I can’t purchase.

I can't go to a bar. I can't go to a casino. I can't even go to the dry cleaner as far as I know. Yes, freedoms have been taken away. I'm ready for them to return to me, one way or another. It doesn't matter if they are not important to YOU, they are important to me and others. This SIP crap is way overblown and getting more and more out of hand each day. There, I did it. I've officially cracked!

I don't understand the issue with sacrificing YOUR personal entertainment for the good of all, and whether something is important to me or not is irrelevant. Just comes off selfish to me. Does it really kill you to not go to a bar or casino for a couple months? As far as I know dry cleaners and laundromats are open... that's a public health issue.

I'm sacrificing, as are many others. But if my parents get to live longer because of it, I'm more than happy to make that sacrifice. Not sure why others aren't.

The issue is that these orders are unconstitutional.

I listed my freedoms that have been taken away. Sure I can ride it out and will do it but I’m not ok with our constitution being disregarded.

I have differing opinions on things you're bringing up so we can just agree to disagree Joe. :thumbup:

Prolly for the best.

Is being forced to wear a mask at a store really any different than "no shirt, no shoes, no service"? does wearing pants take away you freedom?

Do you think your faith with keep you from catching the virus? There was a large outbreak early on that was all linked to a church in Glenview. I'm sure there are many other examples throughout the country.

That said, I dont think a shutdown is sustainable and we need to reopen soon.

Just got back from Walworth County. Wide open up there. I just fished though :lol: Came back home and the in-laws were over for the first time in months. On second though, maybe these restrictions are not so bad?

I'm gonna be pissed when traffic returns back to normal. I hope the shutdown lasts forever because Im a selfish truck driver who drives through the loop 4x a day.
