The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
Greetings to ever one in western Illinois and all readers of The Quill.
Lawmakers are try'n ta pass a bill protect'n cougars, bears, and other such varmint from be'n shot in Illinois. They (mean'n legislatures) are a goofy bunch. First they deny their existence and then they wants to protect em even though they claim they don't exist in Illinois. Finally, they wants to protect their existence and growth in numbers by given em legal protection.
Do ya suppose them lawmakers would want a cougar or bear a roam'n around near their backyard with children nearby? The mental strain of be'n a lawmaker seems to be gett'n the best of them folk! They needs a vacation - the kind that comes with vote'n em out of office so's they can have more time to play with the non-existent cougar and bear.
Are you a Democrat, Republican, or a Southerner. Well, here's a little test that will help ya decide. The answer can be found by pose'n the follow'n question:
Ya is walk'n down a deserted street with your wife and two small children....
Suddenly, a terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with ya, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges ya ....
Ya are carry'n a Kimber 1911 caliber 45 ACP, and ya are an expert shot. Ya have mere seconds before he reaches ya and your family.
What do ya do?
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Click....(sounds of reload'n)
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Daughter: "Nice grouping Daddy!'
Were those the Winchester silver tips or hollow points?
Son: "Can I shoot the next one?!'
Wife: "Ya ain't take'n that ta the taxidermist!'
It might be too wet ta work the ground but it's about right fer trim'n fruit trees, rack'n leaves and putt'n in fertilizer spikes fer tree growth.
Strange thing about the farm, there's always someth'n ta do ta burnoff the accumulated fat picked up dure'n the winter months.
