A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

(Sept. 1, 2010) A Picture is worth a thousand words….so the saying goes.  That is of course, unless it’s the picture of (Honest) Abe Lincoln that once hung in Rod Blagodope’s office….then it may be 2000 words.  There’s a renewed interest in the auction of his belongings and I see this as a good thing, since Rod has apparently decided to shut up.  Now it’s my turn.

I’m Joe average citizen in Illinois, and everyone I’ve talked to about Blago  is just as disgusted as I am, at what they’ve let this man and his wife do before and during his trial.  If I hear Blago tell the sob story about how the FBI came into his home in the middle of the night, while his little girls (or family, depends on which script he’s reciting) were sleeping and arrested him, I’ll kick a cat somewhere (just kidding..).   The fact is, the FBI called him on the phone at 6am and said “get dressed, you’re being arrested), but his version is certainly more theatrical….but then, that’s Rod.  I was honestlty surprised he didn’t come out in his Elvis PJs that morning.

Here’s the quote from the Sun Times, and you can read the full article here.

Gov. Blagojevich got the call at 6 a.m. It was the head of Chicago’s FBI office to tell him he was being arrested.  “Well, I woke him up,” Robert Grant said. “The first thing he asked was this a joke. He wanted to make sure this was an honest call.”  Grant said he told the governor two agents were standing outside his door, and asked him to open the door “so we can do this as quietly.”  “He was very cooperative,” Grant said, adding that the governor’s two young daughters were asleep but his wife Patti was awake.

This isn’t quite the way Blago said went down dozens of times in interviews, yet no one slapped him upside the head and said “yo Rod……you’re full of ****!  Why?  I’ll say it right now….Rod…you’re full of ****!  This guy makes up stuff in his head and recites it over and over again so many times that he may actually believe it!  That is a sickness, but you don’t want to give him reason to enter an insanity plea, either.

Blago flushed Illinois down the proverbial toilet (with the help of the Chicago Democrats) with his entitlement programs.   For years, he, along with people like Chgo. Ald. (22nd Ward)  Ricardo (where’s the bottle?) Munoz and Congressman  Luis Gurierrez,  have given millions and millions of dollars of state tax-payer’s money to organizations like the ICIRR, who then dole out those very funds to the same people who put hundreds of thousands of protestors who then march downtown, costing us MILLION$ in police, fire and other services supposedly for the rights of criminals?  Yes…criminals.  Granted, sometime in future the Congress MAY adopt new immigration laws, but right now as law is currently written, illegal aliens are in fact, criminals, especially if they’re working here because they have to use bogus identification to get a job (much like that which Alderman Ricardo (where’s the bottle?) Munoz’s father went to jail for helping make, without his knowledge of course (LOL!).

Someone posted a comment in the DH write-up about not caring anymore and that we should just forget about Blago and the clown-car that transports him and the Chicago Dems to and from Springfield.  If I were moving out of state, I might think that way, but my wife and I, as well as my kids, still have to deal with the mess that they created for a long time to come.

Illegal Immigration is big business in Illinois.  It keeps those labor costs down so company profits can soar, and we all know who benefits from that, right?  I mean…in politics now, it’s he who has the most money, wins.  The only way to change it is to clean house in Springfield and I don’t think that will ever happen, and given past history, Illinoisans will once again shoot themselves in the foot no matter which way they vote, which feeds the apathy in this state amongst it’s registered voters, but then that’s what they want….isn’t it.

Yes…..U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald was 100% correct in his statement that Lincoln would turn over in his grave, unfortunately he’s probably been spinning  in there for years now.

Oh…and here’s another one of the treasures obtained at the Blago Auction.  Enjoy.  There will be many more to come. 😉
