Go Rocky!

Not only has he brought the Blackhawks back from the verge of extinction, he wants us to have cheap booze, too!
  • With the clock running, Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz, whose family also runs a liquor distribution company, filed a lawsuit Tuesday to block the state’s controversial construction program that is to be funded by legalizing video poker and hiking a number of sin taxes, including on booze.

    In the legal challenge, filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court, Wirtz calls the state’s $31 billion statewide construction program unconstitutional. In addition to legalized video poker, the program is to be funded by new taxes on beer, wine and liquor that go into effect Sept. 1.

September 1st? Damn, we better go stock up on Wild Turkey and Glenlivet. Medicinal purposes only J-Fed - we swear!

I guess Quinn don't think if we are having a big party we won't go to Wisconsin or Indiana. Sorry Gov. I will.

This ties in neatly with Monday's post regarding the burning of the confiscated pot plants. How many readers suggested "legalize it then TAX IT!

There is your state construction program right there!

Isn't this the same Wirtz family that lobbied in 2000 to lock in their distributors to them via George Ryan.

It took a couple of years for that one to be rescinded, while they soaked us.

Sorry, I ain't buying this one from them.

You think that is anything,*Black Panther Bobby Rush wanted to TAX ALL FIREARMS & AMMUNITON OUT OF EXISTANCE! (*Note lack of the word, “former”)

Right there on your Federal Income Tax forms.


It is Federal Gun Registration and eventual confiscation ala 1930's Germany.

Just like Shortshanks and the rest of the Liberalnazis want.

Just check out H.R. 45 on the Congressional website.

Fortunately, there are still enough level heads in the congress and senate who realize that support of this anywhere out but the places like the Peoples Republic of Chicago would be Political Suicide.

Would Bobby say that the first people to be disarmed should be his voters like the Black Panthers, the Vicelords or the GDs? How will this play out on election day?
