And is that idea any more ridiculous than this OTHER day that’s now on the books?
This year, some of the Resistance States are making changes.
One State, in particular, has ‘nailed their colors to the mast’ in a way that’s about as subtle as a punch in the throat.
This year, they have made Obama’s birthday a holiday.
Illinois has made August 4 — Barack Obama’s birthday — ‘Barack Obama Day’.
It’s nice to know that things are running so smoothly in Illinois that they can focus on a day to honor President Barack Obama.
Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law Friday a measure to designate Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” across Illinois.
The newest state holiday will be celebrated each year on the 44th president’s birthday, beginning in 2018.
The holiday will be “observed throughout the State as a day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities,” Senate Bill 55 reads.
Obama is one of several Illinoisans that have been honored with their own commemorative ‘Day’, such as Ronald Reagan, Jane Addams, and Adlai Stevenson. These days in honor are not official state holidays, so banks, offices, and schools remain open.
That wasn’t the original intent of the Democrats, however.
Democrats’ efforts to make Obama’s birthday a legal state holiday – during which schools and state offices would close, while banks and businesses could, but would not be required to close – stalled after some lawmakers voiced concern that other Illinois presidents, like Reagan, do not have similar holidays.
Republicans, including Rauner, also noted the economic cost of closing state buildings on the holiday, and the impact of workers having the day off.
“It’s incredibly proud for Illinois that the president came from Illinois. I think it’s awesome, and I think we should celebrate it,” Rauner told reporters in February. “I don’t think it should be a formal holiday with paid, forced time off, but I think it should be a day of acknowledgment and celebration.”

So, how would you celebrate August 4 in Illinois?
Here are our ClashDaily suggestions:
– Weaponize government agencies against your political enemies (the IRS, FBI, and the DOJ are all options)
– Side with a tyrannical theocracy against the citizens of Iran
– Make a speech about how your house was built by slaves
– Hot mic moment with a Russian promising ‘flexibility’
– Keep your doctor if you like your doctor
– If you break a promise that you never intended to keep, say it’s racism
– Tell all cops that they’re anti-black racists — including the black cops
– Systemically attack the one news network that dares to tell the truth
– Throw a baseball and/or ride a bike in the most effeminate way possible
But now they’re talking about another Liberal hero running for leadership.
Oh, yes. The one and only.
And hey, if you want a holiday at the end of January, then this is the day for you.
Oprah’s birthday is on January 29th.
Just in time for the arctic blasts up north and the freezing iguanas dropping from the trees in Florida.
Doesn’t that sound lovely?
Even if you hate skiing, she’ll make it the law.
You know she would.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
