"Tribune here, Ray. Hello there, Bill Gregg kinds of cranes. Hey, Greg. Sir. Hand Heather Sharona have wttw together. Well, Pritzker, the governor said something I thought was, you know the truth Looking out, which has been very controversial, he said. It's okay for state legislators who don't otherwise qualify for the co vered vaccine to go ahead and get inoculated because we need State government to function well, this generated like 100 and 30,000 hits on my Twitter account and counting with lots of outrage expressed raided that seem like a smart thing to say. Well, I think if they could have given a vaccine I shot it would make state government function well, they should have done in about 30 years ago, but This is not exactly the kind of thing that's going to resonate with people who want to run out and vote for Pritzker for another term. Uh, sure, there is a need for lawmakers to work in a safe environment. Nobody's gonna question that. But the idea that they get special privilege That's what really, uh, gets to Joe lunchbox. Uh, out there in the in the real world. People are struggling to try to get there first Vaccine or being told that they haven't got there. Uh, right to have their second vaccine because they Haven't had their first vaccine, even though they've had their first vaccine. And so there is a letter of mania out there about this subject already, and when you roll it into the grand scheme of things, lawmakers get a chance to have tickets at the world Syriza or or get them at a regular price when everybody else has to pay inflated, you know these kings of things or what? Really Really torques off the average voter. Great. What do you think of this? I'm a little more sympathetic than theirs. And Ray is, um, but my sister has limits. Um, he raised right that you don't want to be perceived is giving inside the politicians special treatment. That is not a bill for everybody. And there's no question of that. All four. Finally, the rate of vaccinations of the state is finally picking up. We're up to On Friday, 75,000, which is a record that's beginning to be a considerable amount of people. Um, um, you don't want to. You don't wanna get favoritism, on the other hand, kind of like teachers, which is another group that's in the news legislators, unlike most best medium large groups, that they're really doing their job so it could be done by zone. But if you're gonna vote, you have to have people in one place, And that means that means risk. Um, under the former speaker. And again that the element houses time dissention went out of business for six months. I didn't do anything. He came down for a couple of days and they got the heck out of town. Um, if if giving these guys Shots. That means they could go back to normal business where they gather and not occasional meetings by Zoom. I'm for it, because because democracy really doesn't work very well in the shadows and and and committee meetings that nobody can really see or know we kind of cabin there your ability to talk If this if this gets us close to back to normal proceedings where we can see what's going on, and people could can show up in comment and participate in the process and them for it. How about you Here? There? Are you sympathetic to Prince Girl letting state legislators get their covert vaccines because state government needs to function Well, close. Quote. What? Everything's that Mayor lawyer likes it to be taxing thing for the alderman at the start of phase one be on January 25th and elicited on Lee. You know, a few scattered You know, angry tweets that came across my timeline. It's interesting but related, and it turned out to be a much more controversial move, probably because by then it was clear that not everybody who wanted a vaccine was going to be able to get one as soon as they wanted one, and there's no doubt it's slower than everybody would have liked, But I think all Greg says there's an argument to be made that The state has a lot of really tough decisions ahead of itself. It hasn't figured out how did meet socially distance, clay. And there were a number of positive coded texts after the fall of affection, even though all of the precautions were in place. So you know, no politician wants to be seen jumping the line. But there are compelling arguments that they are in fact essential workers. Even though some people might not see them. That's essential. How about you lend? You think this was a dumb thing for Pritzker to say? It wasn't done to say it was in politics to do so. You have AH, decision. First of all, everybody. We've been in this for 89 10 months. If the Illinois General Assembly cannot figure out a safe way to meet, remotely or to social distance came on them. They should have figured this out. They have the resources they have at the convention center and Springfield and they know the rules. And if you don't need me to repeat mask, hand wash social distance, So this seems unnecessary step because what people here isn't just that they're eligible. And whatever is there What is their category now? When anyone be whatever they here politically, that they also will get the shot. There are enormous issues right now, with covert equity. It is a struggle to get vaccine appointments in in Illinois, even if you are computer literate and savvy and can work the phones. And in this group of people to it at this time, seems it seems, seems that Pritzker took and maybe it was calculated a political risk. You might have somehow researched it to know if it was worth it. Okay, Volatile. This is right now. I actually had somebody Neighbor Come beating on my door today and saying we've got to write about health screwed up that he's a vaccination are right now, and he was talking about how he couldn't get his second shot because they couldn't even keep track that he had his first and he had his certificate so it is really something that is Out there that has the general public up in arms where there were they want their shots, by the way, not Greg Pritzker's spent 100 and $71 million getting himself elected. There's a screw up like this mean maybe he'll have to spend even more than that to get re elected, or is he not that I don't think money is gonna is gonna determine whether pressure Windsor knot issues like this. They're gonna determine whether he wins or not. Whether this Say to calm research to pull out whether this departure of money and wealth and jobs continues..

"He was sentenced to seven years in prison with five years of probation. Following his release. George Ryan, a Republican governor from 1999 to 2003, was convicted of corruption in 2006 related to his time in Illinois secretary of State when commercial driver's licenses were issued unqualified truckers in exchange for bribes And one of the truckers was involved in a crash that killed six Children. In this case the same in this case, the same governor who prosecuted the first guy I talked about was the same guy who defended this particular governor and then Rod Blood Goya vich, which some may remember his name. He's the most recent one. Who's gone to prison. He was governor from 2003 to 2009. He was impeached and removed from office by the Illinois General Assembly in a unanimous vote in in January of 2009 after being tied to multiple pay to play schemes, including attempting to sell the former Senate seat of then President elect Barack Obama. In August of 2010. He was convicted of lying to the FBI in connection with the investigation. But the jury deadlocked on 23 other charges. He was retired on 20 counts from his 2010 trial and On June 27th of 2011 local blood Goya. Vich was convicted of 17 counts of fraud, acquitted on one count and the jury was hung on to in December of that year. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison in February of 2020 Blagojevich sentence was commuted to time served by Donald Trump. So corruption is rampant in Illinois is sound like or at least they're good at catching corruption because I imagine the corruptions pretty rampant everywhere. God, yes, Illinois at least, seems tohave a better. Better chess. At least they want you to think they're doing something about it. Governors in prison That's a step in the right direction. At the very least, it could be that you know, it's because they you know what it's like. They flew too close to the science to via son. Three of those governors were Democrats won was a Republican, so that their corruption was just so egregious and outrageous for that time right today, all that stuff that they do. I'm sure you even mayor, local mayors and stuff do that They just had to be arrested. Well, let's go to the phones. We got Ingrid calling from Maryland. Ingrid, you're on free talk live. Hey, Hey, what's on your mind? Yeah, Yeah, one tart with a crisp camel case like I want to call in a howling balls. Does it at the time, Okay. Chris Cantwell, the former host here on free talk live. We had to fire him because he became a racist. Sadly, then he ultimately went down kind of a dark path because of that, now ended up I'm just kind of giving. I know. You know, I'm just giving our listeners a brief as brief of a recap as he can having been a friend of his for the last Decade. Basically, hey, he went down a dark path towards racism, which led him to the Charlottesville protests in 2017, where he was arrested for what he says was self defense. In that particular case, he ended up taking a guilty plea was sentenced to believe time served, but what banished from the state of Virginia for at least five years. Then returned to New Hampshire, where a couple years after that he kind of laid low for a couple of years. And then the FBI raided his home in January of this year at about three in the morning where they tossed his entire apartment looking for. Well, whatever it was that they were they were looking for. Ah Ah, and they charged him with the so called crimes. Of, you know, not actually, like doing anything violent, or, you know, hurting anybody but saying something mean to another racist on the telegram chat application that by the way, the other racist apparently didn't actually report to the police. It was the police the FBI who had infiltrated A racist chat room or check group for the so called Bull Patrol, which is like an extreme racist, sick sicko group that named themselves after a shooter. Lincoln asked Murder. Yeah. Ah, Dylann roof, And so he was. He was having an argument with one of these scumbags, and so basically you have two a holes. Arguing with one another on the Internet. The federal government decided that they were going to charge Chris with interstate threatening and interstate extortion for which he now faces something like 25 years in prison after being convicted. I think last month or September of thieves so called crime, So basically he is a political prisoner. Go ahead with what you wanted to say. Yeah. So just you think that I'm the one that people might not really know about is those people not done with the photo. We'll start the ball patrol, as does this group that worships still roof and at the time, you know, because, you know, you know, you know you got in trouble trying to roll and he's all like you every trendy You know? Yeah, And it's not the stuff that he became involved the ball patrol, But the thing is That really caused mostly by that, like in October of that map, right? I think was in those 19. I really sure Like when they have the Sea of life Synagogue shoot on crust on his show announced Dead, which was with 11 Jews had died. And Chris was like telling fans. You don't don't do this. Don't kill Jews. Don't do those. And that was that the boat patrol off and that's why they started harassing him. So they turned against him at that at that point, Yeah. Okay. Like, yeah, You know, like, you know, crushed like this. Like he just says whatever you want to know, like Chris, you can't. He couldn't let it go if you want. Hang on. I know you had a problem.
