“‘There’s something happening here,’ to quote a line from an old sixties protest song. People are waking up. Overwhelmingly people are indignant about this emergency rule. People are starting to understand the danger of the precedent that would be set here if indefinite powers, like Gov. Pritzker claims he has, are allowed to stand.”

I just started following Wirepoints recently and there is one thing that I am absolutely sure of and that is that it was the driving force behind the movement that forced J. Beluga to copulate… eh… hmmm… excuse me, I think that I meant to say capitulate.

Crony Socialism is the most troubling aspect. Selective enforcement of the law, favoring friends of the regime.
