This Illinois State Republican goes ballistic while the House was in session....y'all really have to hear this!! He goes bat sh*t crazy!

This Illinois State Republican Mike Boost yells out completely pissed off and says "Stop playing games with the gun bill!!!"  Illinois is the only state in the Union without a concealed carry law but a federal judge has ruled that the state legislature must remedy that illegal blocking of Illinoian’s Second Amendment rights by June 9. Despite this ruling the state’s Democrats are still playing games with this law.

 Boost launched into a fierce tirade against state Democrats for trying to slip in major changes into the bill instead of minor alterations. The amendment illicitly gives county sheriffs the authority to deny concealed carry to applicants with little reason needed. So Boost objected, quite loudly I may add and said....

"“Floor amendments should be some technical small change that we shouldn’t have to worry about like this. But yet you bring a whole bill that has questions whether it is even constitutional,” Bost said on the floor of the Illinois House. “Folks, the process is really messed up. Quit! This is not the bill that everyone has debated…it is a ploy and once again your side of the aisle keeps trying to make ploys instead of dealing with the real issue. Keep playing games! “Do you know that one of the associations actually has a click-down of when we have constitutional carry in the state of Illinois? And you want to endanger your citizens and keep playing games like this? Vote no!!!" 

But you all need to watch that video to hear what he is saying. Its pretty good!!

I had to look up the word "click-down" because I never heard of that, and maybe a few of you don't know either.  The click-down is a technique that is used to discover what kind of values that a  person may have. So  he definition of a value is something that is really important to someone. And a "core" value is what is really important about the important things and beyond which you cannot go further. Another words, core values are what someone is willing to fight for, maybe to die for, and certainly to give up a job for.

  • I kept wondering if that man was going to have a heart attack while he was speaking.

  • He should be careful. Our federal congressman had a spectacular rant on the house floor pointing out how absolutely stupid a proposed "green" bill was that would have essentially put every industry in Indiana out of business and sent it all to China. Veins popping, red in the face, 3 other congressmen ceded him time so he could keep going. He was absolutely right, and the bill died. Within a year he was outed on a "scandal" and replaced with some tea party asshole who spends as much as all the other tea party idiots and liberal idiots.
