I wish every day was Barack Obama day.

Illinoisans honored former President Obama on Saturday with the first annual “Barack Obama Day.”

The Illinois legislature last year unanimously passed a measure establishing Aug. 4, the former president’s birthday, as a state holiday.

Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signed the bill into law on Aug. 6, 2017, making this year the first that the holiday is celebrated.

Today also happens to be Obama’s birthday, so there are two reasons to celebrate the man and his legacy. 

I swear I miss him more every single day.

    Had a meeting of Democrats at my home last night and we agree we must develop a positive mantra to counter MAGA.
    Could you put out call for suggestions.
    Something along the line of “United we stand divided we fall.”
    “Life is about we not me”

      When the obstacles in the world become greater and more complex and seem to be coming from all directions at once, there are two great tendencies in the psyche. One is to simplify and quickly adopt some fundamentalism, and the other is to accept the multiplicity and the great tension that come from embracing the incurable nature of the world.

      In other words, good luck rebutting the ignorant and their flat earth.

      That was wonderful. Even as a young man, President Obama had such a gracious, intelligent presence.

    I remember the night he won 2008. I cried, witnessing history that I never thought would happen.
    Beat damn president of my lifetime. I was only in 3rd grade when JFK was assassinated.
    Happy Birthday, President Obama, we would have elected you a third term if we could have.

    Even though I miss the food and good bars and the Cubs, so glad I moved out of Chicago 20+ years ago. Illinois is basically bankrupt right now. It is by far one of the most politically corrupt cities in one of the most politically corrupt states in the union. Save for maybe Louisiana, they are close. Bought and paid for seats etc… A good portion of the Governors from each state regularly find themselves behind bars.

    It has gone to shit, all thanks to decades of Democrat control.

    5 days into August:

    August to Date
    Shot & Killed: 11
    Shot & Wounded: 77
    Total Shot: 88
    Total Homicides: 11
