We have a new Holiday in Chicago Land.

 

Former US President Barack Obama has received a unique birthday present from his adopted home state, a holiday in his name.

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed the measure into law on Friday designating August 4, the 44th US president's birthday, as "Barack Obama Day" in the the Prairie State.

 

The Obama state holiday will be celebrated annually beginning in 2018, according to Nbcchicago.com.

The Obama birthday 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," according to the reading of Illinois Senate Bill 55.

Several lawmakers abstained from voting for the honorific, although there were no votes against.

Introduced by Illinois state Senator Emil Jones III, himself the son of former Senate President Emil Jones, Jr. — who contributed significantly to elevating then-state Senator Obama to the US Senate in 2004 — the SB 55 measure is thought to be a gift from the elder Jones, who, according to reports, considers himself to be Obama's political "godfather," cited by Nbcchicago.com.

"Barack Obama Day" will not require businesses and government offices to close, but schools and other institutions are encouraged to commemorate the oc... in the state that also brought the country Abraham Lincoln.

Lawmakers in the state also voted in July to rename part of a heavily-traveled Chicago roadway after Obama, designating a stretch of Interstate 55 as the "Barack Obama Presidential Expressway."

It is hoped that Republican lawmakers will not set up roadblocks on that right of way as well.

It's more insanity from the left. I know a few on the net from Illinois, and I feel for them. The conservatives there have been insulted beyond belief! They seem to be in a competition with California to see who can stomp harder on constituents. I think NY and NJ are not far behind!

I feel sorry for them too. Good grief, Barack Obama Day? OMG that made me ill. 

Is Obamacare day next?

If I would live in Chicago I would rather travel on a dirt road around that Barack Obama Presidential Express way.

I'm sure it is next. Dirt roads are my preference anyway. 

Secession petitions are under way in California, hopefully it succeeds.

Unfortunately, the SCOTUS will uphold the outcome of the first Civil War and not allow the people's voice in the state to be heard.  I think we're stuck with 'em.

This holiday is racist!   lol   There is no Abraham Lincoln Day, is there?

Well, Lincoln's Birthday (February 12) used to be a Federal, State, local and bank holiday until they made 'Presidents Day' in the '80s. Most Republican electees had a 'Lincoln Day Dinner' as a fundraiser. I went to many....they were awesome!

Trivia note.....February 12 is also the Birthday of Fundamental Refounding :)

Let me modify my statement --> There is no Abraham Lincoln Day IN ILLINOIS, is there?  All you said was true.

Uh no, I don't think there is an 'Abraham Lincoln Day' in Illinois.  I don't think Honest Abe organized communities.....

To top it off, we have this:

Watch the video............

What the heck? OMG

Here's one for you. I live right offshore from Ocean City, a very rich town, a dry town. Well, we go to the Wawa and out walks 2 women, dressed in FULL BURKAS. Could not even see their faces at all. I have never seen a person in full Burka around where I live before and it was especially very out of place for where I live. Rick and I both stopped and stared. It really was kind of shocking to both of us. In fact, everyone that saw them just stopped and looked. Creeped me out.
