Democratic Party of McHenry County “Drinking Liberally” Event Thursday — 35 Comments

  1. The problem is they spend liberally too, on illegal aliens to pad their numbers!

  2. The Commies coming to Huntley ?
    Or could it be a meeting of the 21st century Hitlerputsch ?
    Perhaps the FBI or Homeland Security will be watching the festivities,
    but more likely just the Huntley Road Pirates anxious to raise more revenue.

  3. bred winner, our friend Angel the wanna be pussy, will meow all the way there. He won’t even care if the kitty litter box is full, he will go anywhere.

  4. The drinking is all part of their syndrome of addictions. A disease-progression which ends in death.

  5. A snowflake convention.

    Their timing could not be worse:

    Nine McHenry County police departments are instituting a new DUI refusal policy that aims to ensure prosecutors have all the evidence needed to successfully prosecute drunk drivers, according to a news release from the State’s Attorney’s Office.

    Starting Sunday, a warrant for a blood draw will be obtained for any DUI suspect that refuses breathalyzer testing.
    Algonquin, Cary, Harvard, Huntley, Johnsburg, Lake in the Hills, McHenry, Spring Grove and Woodstock police departments will participate in collaboration with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.

  6. Another new “revenue” grab ?

    And when you refuse the breathalyzer and are forced against your will to submit to
    a blood draw and it comes back either below legal limit or 0, then what ?


    I think cops may be in for a violent confrontation when they try to institute
    this new DUI policy on people against their will.

    Welcome to McHenry Stasi County.

  7. Why do all the posts have to be so negative? Why brand everyone as “sick”. Can we just discuss things instead of making racist comments? I encourage you to attend and ask questions. Have a productive discussion about issues that affect all of us and of course use facts and not emotion or name calling.

  8. Perhaps we just don’t take to hypocritical Lefties, William.
    If you don’t like it then feel free to post on Facebook.
    I’m sure Zuckerburg will welcome you with open arms.

  9. So you don’t want to discuss things on an intellectual level? I’m not sure what a “lefty” is but I know in order to improve as a society we have to be able to discuss things in a rational manner.

  10. Sunshine blogger, you must show up and take close-up pictures of empty beer bottles in trash cans. Perhaps that will grant you the Pulitzer you deserve. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwww…

  11. You got that right, Cindy.
    Did you notice he instantly played the one of the Lefties
    favorite accusations, the race card ?
    The only person that brought up race was the Leftist himself.
    And BTW, there is no such thing a “rational” Leftist/Progressive.
    Now get thee to Fakebook where your Leftist tripe will be appreciated.

  12. Hear the whisper. It’s the blue wave coming your way. Say that again? Not a wave, but a tsunami? Perhaps that’s why Paul Ryan decided to open the field to other candidates; in other words, get the heck out of the way before being washed by the shellacking next November. Repeat with me: Speaker Pelosi, Speaker Pelosi, Speaker Pelosi…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock……

  13. Here is the progressive promise. You may not agree with everything but I think there should be areas of agreement:
    The Progressive Promise
    Fairness For All

    The Congressional Progressive Caucus believes in government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Our fairness plan is rooted in our core principles. It also embodies national priorities that are consistent with the values, needs, and hopes of all our people, not just the powerful and the privileged. We pledge our unwavering commitment to these legislative priorities and we will not rest until they become law.

    1. Fighting for Economic Justice and Security in the U.S. and Global Economies

    » To uphold the right to universal access to affordable, high quality healthcare for all.

    » To preserve guaranteed Social Security benefits for all Americans, protect private pensions, and require corporate accountability.

    » To invest in America and create new jobs in the U.S. by building more affordable housing, re-building America’s schools and physical infrastructure, cleaning up our environment, and improving homeland security.

    » To export more American products and not more American jobs and demand fair trade.

    » To reaffirm freedom of association and enforce the right to organize.

    » To ensure working families can live above the poverty line and with dignity by raising and indexing the minimum wage.

    2. Protecting and Preserving Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

    » To sunset expiring provisions of the Patriot Act and bring remaining provisions into line with the U. S. Constitution.

    » To protect the personal privacy of all Americans from unbridled police powers and unchecked government intrusion.

    » To extend the Voting Rights Act and reform our electoral processes.

    » To fight corporate consolidation of the media and ensure opportunity for all voices to be heard.

    » To ensure enforcement of all legal rights in the workplace.

    » To eliminate all forms of discrimination based upon color, race, religion, gender, creed, disability, or sexual orientation.

    3. Promoting Global Peace and Security

    » To honor and help our overburdened international public servants – both military and civilian.

    » To bring U. S. troops home from Iraq as soon as possible.

    » To re-build U.S. alliances around the world, restore international respect for American power and influence, and reaffirm our nation’s constructive engagement in the United Nations and other multilateral organizations.

    » To enhance international cooperation to reduce the threats posed by nuclear proliferation and weapons of mass destruction.

    » To increase efforts to combat hunger and the scourge of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and other infectious diseases.

    » To encourage debt relief for poor countries and support efforts to reach the UN’s Millennium Goals for Developing Countries.

    4. Advancing Environmental Protection & Energy Independence » To free ourselves and our economy from dependence upon imported oil and shift to growing reliance upon renewable energy supplies and technologies, thus creating at least three million new jobs, cleansing our environment, and enhancing our nation’s security.

    » To promote environmental justice in affirmation that all people have an inherent right to a healthy environment, clean air, and clean water wherever we live, work, and relax.

    » To change incentives in federal tax, procurement, and appropriation policies to:

    (A) Speed commercialization of solar, biomass, and wind power generation, while encouraging state and local policy innovation to link clean energy and job creation;

    (B) Convert domestic assembly lines to manufacture highly efficient vehicles, enhance global competitiveness of U.S. auto industry, and expand consumer choice;

    (C) Increase investment in construction of “green buildings” and more energy-efficient homes and workplaces;

    (D) Link higher energy efficiency standards in appliances to consumer and manufacturing incentives that increase demand for new durable goods and increase investment in U.S. factories;
    » To eliminate environmental threat posed by global warming and ensuring that America does our part to advance an effective global problem-solving approach.

    » To expand energy-efficient transportation choices by increasing investment in synthesized networks, including bicycle, local bus and rail transit, regional high-speed rail and magnetic levitation rail projects.

    » To preserve prudent public interest regulations that encourage sustainable growth and investment, ensure energy diversity and system reliability, protect workers and the environment, reward consumer conservation, and support an expanding marketplace that rewards the commercialization of energy-efficient technologies.

  14. Hi Bill. If you seek reasonable discourse in this forum, good luck. This is where the anonymous fling unsubstantiated insults and accusations from the safety of their dens.

  15. Thanks. I was trying to see if people can reach some sort of common ground or at least understand the perspective of others without the insults.

  16. Liberals are big on spending other people’s money.

    Want to be this group are lousy tippers?

  17. The Congressional Progressive Caucus does not believe in fiscally responsible gov or balanced budgets?
    Not on the list, yet those two things should be the first thing on their list.

  18. Hey conservatives, are you thinking 18th amendment? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeoooooowwwwwww…

  19. Look at the pest, the guy that mimics the mostly left wing media that stupidly promotes the so-called “blue wave”. Smart observers recognizes wishful thinking and hopeful propaganda by the MOSTLY leftist media to influence the minds of voters. Very insidious efforts by the mostly left wing media to advance their leftist, dangerous and anti-US agenda. Unfortunately, there are those who might be easily swayed by the far left wingers and traitors who spew their venom on cable tv news networks, broadcast tv networks and some so-called prominent left wing newspapers in the far eastern part of the U.S.

  20. Let’s hope that on April 12 that sufficient Huntley police are around the streets near the tavern and monitor the movements in cars of those leaving the tavern. No one could disagree with that.

  21. “The Progressive Promise
    Fairness For All”

    You lied in the first line! Progressives don’t believe in fairness for all, they believe in EQUAL OUTCOMES FOR ALL. That’s anti-American, anti-Productive Commie blather.

  22. ” improving homeland security” Another lie! Progressives don’t want to secure our borders. Tell me how those two things are not in conflict with each other

  23. Blah, blah, blah, left wing, blah, blah, blah, the northeast, blah, blah, blah, the media…Hear the whisper. It is overwhelming, and unstoppable. Is it fake news Paul Ryan is retiring? Yeah, to spend more time with his family, of course. stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwww…

  24. William seems to be a brainwashed Utopia thinker. The communist manifesto changes nothing. Ever hear of common law, William? Takes care of ALL of that progressive baloney you are spewing.

  25. MAGA = “My Attorney Got Arrested.” Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwww…

  26. Having an informal event that brings people together to have fun is a good idea. Republicans only have an event if someone wants money, and it’s always the same gray haired people. Democrats roughly doubled the amount of PC they have, Republicans lost PC. We’ll see what happens in November…

  27. Seems like progressives get it wrong again. Drinking and constructive dialogue don’t go well together. A more positive approach for the progressive group might be to have regular meetings, monthly(?), at a public place such as a library room or similar with an agenda of topics to be discussed with a fair-minded moderator in charge. Publish the agenda of topics and have an open invitation to all no matter their political leanings.

  28. Sunshine blogger, would you moderate this brilliant idea of our political science and sociology professor? How about discussing the overwhelming blue wave as the #1 item during the first meeting? How about discussing the retirement of speaker Paul Ryan? How about chanting “Speaker Pelosi, Speaker Pelosi, Speaker Pelosi” to get the meeting started and adjourned? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  29. Can progressives even be moderated at an open meeting with conservatives? Probably not. Some of them might shout down a conservative or say that a conservative’s ideas are offensive.

  30. I’m sure our very own McHenry county second coming of William F. Buckley Jr. will gladly moderate the forum. “Please no name calling, you idiots!” Stay tuned…tic, tock, meeeeeoooooowwwwwww…
