    It’s sad to see so many at the protest wearing masks. If you believe in the covid scam you justify the lockdowns. It’s that simple.

    Yes. Only braindead morons that have fallen for the psyop wear Satanic ritual masks.
    What kind of a protest would condone that!

    96 Counites are open for indoor. Only 6 are closed. Why can I go to Piatt to eat inside, but cannot in Champaign. It is clear that Julia is beholden to Jelly Belly and will do his bidding. Julie Pryde is just clueless about this whole thing,

    Anyone verified the claim on the amount of coronavirus relief dollars the state has or is not distributing? Its ludicrous that funding would be distributed to the hospitality industry workers through unemployment insurance. Also, the surge of hospitality industry worker unemployment claims cited for last month excludes people working to support operations at O’hare international airport? If that’s actually occurring, the Pritzker admin is flaunting a disparity they cause or enable at whole civilized world,

    I feel very sorry for the posters who are ok with over 300,000 people dying and no this virus isn’t a scam. I suppose if you were born before vaccines or knowledge about smallpox & polio you’d feel better if you went up and close to someone who was infected.
    I support my local restaurant – just today in fact – by getting carry out. I’ know of so many people who have been infected, some mild, some hospital some now dead I hate wearing a mask and not going inside to my favorite restaurant, but will continue to wear the mask, & call in my restaurant order, because it’s public health.

      Serve yourself a historical account of the impact of your version of “smallpox and polio” relative to the current state and the state of Illinois coronavirus response.
      Understand what the last century has brought to actuarial tables for life expectancy. Then, in a proportionate serving, remark on someone else’s virtue. Until then, your comment registers willful ignorance.

        PK, if you’re throwing any science around such actuarial tables to these willfully ignorant bureaucrats, you may as well speak Martian. I work in actuarial science, and it’s basically an alien language for most people.

        Living inside a bubble gets very comfortable, I guess.

          Most generally, a durable utensil is preferable to the “public health” mandate for carry-out sporks, napkins and curbside cocktails. Stupid me.

      Jannie? Around the whole world, ZERO people have died from this fake totally concocted lie. You are brainwashed and emotional over something that was spoon-fed to you that was simply NEVER true. There has never been any such thing as a virus. Contagion is a hoax. You are following evil entities that have lied about germ theory for decades upon decades and fallen for their latest script to usher in their Satanic New World Order. Millions are suffering and dying from this despicable ploy to control all of mankind through their fear porn. Since you are emotionally based, you might want to think about that swindle perpetrated on all people in this filthy evil diabolical ploy they have deployed just to control and subjugate. You support NO ONE but Satan if you believe one idiotic word of this fabrication specifically designed to bring all of mankind to its knees.

    Poor Jannie. She lets talking points get in the way of real science. Our governor and people like Jannie have taken us down the wrong approach which has resulted in deaths and loss of economic freedom. Public Health agencies should present details and statistics why shutting down prevents deaths and hospitalizations. They don’t because they cannot. They just continue with the same message using a hysteria driven media to scare and frighten. Its this message that Jannie supports that has done nothing except create fear and panic, to turn Americans against one another, caused countless individuals to lose their jobs, increased suicides and domestic abuse and all they say is well wear a mask. Jannie your way isn’t working. Pathetic

    I’ve offered my services to my small suburb mayor. I’ve offered my services to aid the new Chicago Restaurant coalition. It’s possible to open up at partial capacity safely. But noone has replied to my offers for FREE services to beef up the health requirements of anything to open up even partially.

    There’s lots of talk about opening up. But noone will pull the trigger so long as Jabba is going around threatening and guilting everyone who may think differently.
