  1. Look at Bill Prim’s float of corruption as it rolls down the road!

  2. It seems like the 14th District race is going to be a real snooze fest again.

  3. Goose……..Bill Prim is not corrupt……you must be a disgruntled Zinke/Harrison supporter…….that float of Honesty, Dignity and Transparency, is going to be rolling right into the Sheriff’s office………get used to it.

  4. One thing that float is NOT and that is Corruption.

    Yes those Zinke supporters are still angry and they can not get used to anyone standing for the good of McHenry County.

    Goosey duck you wouldn’t know a honest person if they were standing right in front of you.

    You are most likely a Harrison supporter/Democrat supporter.

    Your feathers will surely be plucked in November,Silly Goose l.o.l.

  5. WOW…………LOOK AT ALL THOSE ” PUBLIC” SIDEWALKS !

  6. Yeah, I was walking down the sidewalk the other day and someone was
    walking towards me.

    As the person was getting closer they said “excuse me” and I replied,” NO, get on your own side,I don’t have to move over,it is my Constitutional right, and Harrison said so. l.o.l. l.o.l.
