THE WEDNESDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

 

 

The establishment GOP won their victory.Their super PAC spent millions running a vile campaign to rid themselves of a good man who would not go along to get along.Don did not crave publicity.For him it was enough to do his job and answer to the needs of his constituents.You could contact his Rockford office by phone or e-mail and always get a response.He was raised on a farm in Egan,Ill.,and his family ran Manzullo’sRestaurant in New Milford for decades.There was always a big crowd on Saturday nights when he was home.He served 10 terms without much serious opposition because he was as good as his word.

The democrat machine set out to rid themselves of some republicans they could not otherwise defeat through some tortured redistricting.The GOP,as is their wont,chose sides in a primary to pick a winner who would answer to them,not the Tea Party types.As of now,I wash my hands of them.They can burn in Hell.

  1. INDICTED STATE LAWMAKER CRUISES TO EASY PRIMARY VICTORY
    This douchebag was appointed to the Illinois State House last year and quickly set about “gettin’ paid.”Thats the way the game is run here.If you have a ‘D’ after your name,people could care less if you have no conscience,no morals and no feelings for anybody but yourself.
    Anybody who wants to get a feel of what GP and I live with,this article goes into some detail of the dirty,underhanded shit these cretins pull at will with no hope of a reckoning.If you sense I’m in a really,really bad mood today you’re getting it.

  2. CITY HALL GRANTS ‘EMERGENCY’ SEWER DEAL TO CLOUT-HEAVY COMPANY
    This company was given racial preference in the past because the then-president was black,even though in a deposition he admitted his white partner did all the work.There are more examples of corruption and bid-rigging that are standard in Crook County in this article.

      Yep, just business as usual in the Chicago sewer of politics.
      My family has been in the contract business for decades. This is how you get a contract in Chicago. You submit your proposal and it goes to the bottom of a pile. Every time you pay off another bureaucrat, it moves up in the pile. When you have paid off all the union bosses and pols, you might get the contract.
      My carpenter was called in by a friend to finish a city rehab that was totally botched by the minority contractor. He had to redo everything that was done, and the owner paid him. Then the original contractor took him to court and sued the guy who did the job right for stealing his contract! And he won!
      The mafia never died in Chicago. It just went “legit”.

  3. OBAMA’S $10,000 NAIL POLISH BUY
    I have no clue;is $40 for 3 bottles of polish expensive?Even with an Obama bag?

    • chrissythehyphenated

      I found places online that do promotional printing on cosmetic bags and on nail polish bottles. The bags run a dollar or two each, the nail polish ten to thirty cents a bottle … both in quantity of course.

      Looks like a $2.00 value for $40.00. I wonder if they include shipping or if that’s on top of the $40. Anybody know what the usual donation-to-give-away percentages are for this kind of thing?

  5. PARENTS ACCUSED OF FLYING TO VEGAS,LEAVING KIDS 12 AND 9 HOME ALONE

  6. TOP ROMNEY ADVISOR SAYS ROMNEY CAN ‘RESET’ HIS POSITIONS AFTER PRIMARY TO APPEAL TO MODERATES
    That is precisely why conservatives distrust him.

  7. HOW DID THIS BUFFOON EVER GET ELECTED??

  8. RYAN SAYS HE HAS THE VOTES TO PASS HIS BUDGET IN THE HOUSE
    Just guessing:the bill will be sent up to the Senate where the Toad will take it to the loo to wipe his shriveled nether regions with,as there is no way democrats will EVER commit to anything regarding spending.

      What an idiot! I hope the poor little kid is okay.

    • GP

      This is why some people should never be parents.
      But what about the Chicago couple who just left their kids home alone while they took off for Vegas.
      Is there any hope for our country?

  9. TRAYVON MARTIN’S SHOOTER DEFENDED BY FELLOW NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH CAPTAIN
    For those not familiar with this story,a neighborhood watch captain fatally shot a black youth he thought was in the neighborhood to commit a burglary.George Zimmerman has not been charged with a crime yet.if he is charged and subsequently found guilty he should face the penalty.what sickens me is the overreaction of blacks who want to crucify this man,the sheriff,his dog and his third grade teacher.Eric Holder has been summoned to invesstigate this heinous crime.Meanwhile,nothing is said about this:

    Blacks routinely kill whites with no feeling whatsoever.I just wish the playing field could be level.But its not and never will be.

    From Instapundit.com:

    More on the Malia-in-Mexico airbrushing event

    “What really bugs me is that the MSM never showed such decorum and willingness to airbrush when it came to things that might actually save lives. Like keeping mum on national security secrets during war-time, for example.”

    “If Obama is so worried about Malia’s safety while she’s in Mexico maybe he shouldn’t have sold all of those weapons to the Mexican Drug Lords.”

    My posts are not showing up again, so I hope this gets to you.
    I understand your anger at losing Mazullo. I have thought many times about getting out of here, but IL is where my roots are, and my family lives and are buried, so I am not willing to just give up yet.
    We need to just keep working to light a fire under the apathetic people we know and get them to VOTE.
    The appalling voter turnout, the lowest ever in an election that was the first time WE actually had voice has me seeing RED, my ire is WHITE hot, and my sadness is deep BLUE.
    But remember, our founders never quit. We can’t either. If we can change ILL, anything is possible! We have a great tea party movement going here. We will take over the IL GOP and turn this state around (if we are lucky enough to live that long!).

    Spring has sprung. Not that we had winter … a snow plow drove past us MAYBE once or twice all winter.

    Personally, I think God is messing with the global warming jerks. Remember how brutal and frigid it was last winter when the emails leaked about how the alarmists had FAKED their data? Then this winter … super mild. Snicker.

    I’m thinking people should really not get presumptuous about who is in charge. That whole Tower of Babel thing ended badly. So did the “unsinkable” Titanic.

      My friend stopped by yesterday and said that she heard on the radio that this is how our winters will be 5 years from now. I looked at her and said “These are the same people and the same forecast models that could not tell you 12 hours ahead of time what the weather was going to be like for your son’s wedding. Do you really think they have any clue what it is going to be like in 5 years?” She decided I had a point.

    Pete, speaking of the GOP establishment, this really might get your blood boiling. For some reason J. D. Hayworth has been filling in (or maybe got a permanent gig – I don’t listen enough to know for sure) on our local talk radio station. So I was sort of half-listening while working today and he was all about some new social media thing that Eric Cantor announced last night on Fox News. I didn’t pay too much attention to that, and I did not see him last night, so I don’t know what that is all about. But the kicker was, J. D. Hayworth went on to opine that Eric Cantor ought to be the Vice President for whoever. Unbelievable. There are many, many conservatives here who have had it with Eric. I think it was just last night that I was posting that I wished Jamie Radtke, founder of the Richmond Tea Party, had challenged him in the GOP primary to run for his district.
