The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
Greetings ta ever one in western Illinois and all readers of "The Quill".
Next Sunday is Mother's Day. Now ya cain't say ya have not been alerted ta that fact because ya've been "too busy" catch'n up on late spring work.
Without a mother ya wouldn't be here, no matter who ya are, how important ya are, and what sex ya are.
Corn's a Grow'n
Last week end ya could row a passel of corn around these parts, as it poked through the ground ta see what's happen'n.
Those plants were greeted with a nice shower of rain total'n 9 tenths inches over 2 days of showers. Some got less, some got a little more.
It's nigh time fer a little history lesson.
And finally the follow'n from Butte, Montana:
This was sent to me from a Democrat who has been so since 1960, longer than most politicians in Washington. Maybe ya won't find it enterest'n. It was given to me reluctantly:
These two set of facts, the first about Illinois and the second about Oklahoma, make an interesting contrast.
PART ONE: ILLINOIS
Some interesting data on the "state' of Illinois :
:..There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
Chicago (the 3rd largest U.S. city) pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S.
Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
Body count: In 2016 (771 murders) 2017 (650 murdered) in Chicago.
221 killed in Iraq;
Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
The Chicago chain of command in 2014:
President: Barack Hussein Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike Madigan)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course, they're all blaming each other.
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% which is the highest in country.
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to "fix' Washington politics for us?
George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.
He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, that's right, also in prison.
Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned.
He and his wife both are in prison also.
The Land of Lincoln, where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates. What?
As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.
"Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian."
"Don't forget Detroit, another great example of a Democratic empire."
PART TWO: OKLAHOMA
OKLAHOMA - may soon have plenty of new residents!
Oklahoma was the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election. While everyone is focusing on Arizona's new law, look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!
Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol.
The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values:
HB 1330: Guess what: OKLAHOMA DID IT ANYWAY!
Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered.
HB 1804: This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake. Guess what: OKLAHOMA DID IT ANYWAY!
Recently they passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes.
Pelosi said it was unconstitutional.
SB 1102: Guess what: OKLAHOMA DID IT ANYWAY!
Several weeks ago, they passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives, joining Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.
More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Carolina's, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida.
Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again.
HJR 1003: The federal Government has made bold steps to take away their guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles.
I'm sure that was a setback for the criminals The Liberals didn't like it-But, OKLAHOMA DID IT ANYWAY!
Just this month, the state voted, and passed a law, that ALL drivers' license exams will be printed in English, and only English. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple. By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either . Guess what: who cares: OKLAHOMA DID IT ANYWAY!
An 11 year old who shot illegals thanks Fox News for reporting it.
A shotgun-armed preteen vs. illegal alien home invaders.
Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11 year old, Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.
It seems these crooks never learned two things:
They were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house.
She quickly ran ta her father's room and grabbed his 12-guage Mossberg 500 shotgun
Resindez was the first ta get up ta the second floor, only ta be the first ta catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11 year old's knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds ta his abdomen and genitals.
When Garza ran ta the foot of the stairs, he took a blast ta the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled ta death before medical help could arrive.
It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took during another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50 year old David O'Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds ta the chest.
Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news? An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself against two murderous, illegal immigrants and she wins.
She is still alive. Now that is gun control!
Thought fer the day: Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist.'
Well that's it for this week with plenty fer the boys ta gnaw on fer a spell. It'll be interest'n ta see what conclusions they come up with.
Hope'n ta see ya with your family in church this week with much ta be thankful fer!
Have a mighty fine rest of the week.Remember, wherever ya are, whatever ya be a do'n "BE A GOOD ONE!"
Keep on Smile'n
Count yer many Blessings
Catch ya later,
