|Near Rock Island, Illinois|
Right now, as I predicted, there is a movement to name an expressway in Illinois after Dear Leader, better known as former president Barack Obama. Actually, I am wrong--there are two movements.
One Chicago Democrat wants to name the portion of Interstate 55 that is southwest of Interstate 294--the rest of it is already named for another Democrat, two-time presidential loser Adlai Stevenson--after Obama. The other one wants to rename that other road, I-294--currently it is called the Tri-State Tollway--after Dear Leader.
Thank God Illinois has two Republican expressways--the Reagan and the Eisenhower. Those two men are among America's greatest presidents.
Meanwhile President Donald Trump is quickly erasing the Obama legacy.
On the other hand, both interstates can be used to exit Illinois, leaving high crime rates, out-of-control taxes, and unfunded government worker pensions in the rearview mirror.Maybe I should reconsider.
Some Illinois legislators want to make Obama's birthday a state holiday
