  1. I’m cutting out the middle man and going right to Jack for this apprenticeship.

    Teach me your ways oh scoundrel master.

  2. This position was already offered to GottJoe but he turned it down while his judicial application was pending.

    He would probably be a consensus choice should he decide he wants to sit on the County Board while waiting for the next judicial seat to open up.

  3. The real estate taxes where I am living now are only about 40% of what they would be in Illinois and the state budget is balanced.

  4. No, Nunda it’s worse than that!

    A lying, diseased Piece of S**t!

    I voted for him over and over again, then I thought, “Why the hell am I doing this?!”

    And awoke from my masochistic trance.

  5. People whine about Walkup, but he was 10,000x better than the ‘jackal.’

    I was DELIGHTED when he beat the crook, Joey G. Saddened to hear he left our dying county.

    But he just followed Jesus’ advice!:

    Mark 6:7-13 7 Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits. 8 These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff-no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. 9 Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. 10 Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. 11 And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” 12 They went out and preached that people should repent. 13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
