Anti-gun Illinois Governor Arrested

By now I’m sure you’re aware that anti-gun Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has been arrested on charges of attempting to sell Obama’s soon to be vacant senate seat to the highest bidder. He was released on $4500 bail (which seems very low – I guess it’s good to be a corrupt politician in Illinois), and forced to forfeit his passport and Illinois firearm owner’s identification card. Some of his hit parade of alleged offenses according to

“Blagojevich also was charged with illegally threatening to withhold state assistance to Tribune Co., the owner of the Chicago Tribune, in an attempt to strong-arm the newspaper into firing editorial writers who had criticized him.

“The 51-year-old Democrat was also accused of engaging in pay-to-play politics—that is, doling out jobs, contracts and appointments in return for campaign contributions.”

It’s amazing that the people of Illinois put up with this sort of flagrant corruption, and I hope that Blagojevich ends up in jail for a very long time for these atrocities.

I also find it amazingly hypocritical that an individual who has campaigned tirelessly to limit firearm ownership opportunities for the citizens of his state holds a firearm owner’s card. Yet one more example of the extreme left’s elitist “I’m better than you” and “I’m above you” mentality. This sort of arrogance is replete in the politics of these corrupt demagogues who are sending our country to hell in a hand basket. Hopefully the people of Illinois will wake up and attack the Chicago machine, but as a member of that machine has just been elected President, I’m not holding my breath.

Until next time!
