Ah lets go to the polls and find out people who do not have an agenda. Don't give two flying f's about this "activist" judge crap. Or even know what it's supposed to even mean.
Can these ever get out of the basement and talk to regular people? Maybe then they would know that what they go on about to bring fear, ain't.

Terror plot suspects have lengthy criminal records
By MICHAEL HILL and JIM FITZGERALD
One is a petty criminal who spent a day in 2002 snatching purses and shooting at people with a BB gun from an SUV. His lawyer calls him "intellectually challenged."
Three have histories of drug convictions, one of them for selling narcotics in a school zone. The man prosecutors portrayed as the instigator of the scheme said he smoked pot the day he planned to blow up the temples.
They went to Wal-Mart for cameras to photograph their targets and had to call around to various contacts to get guns, prosecutors said.
But if they sometimes seemed amateurish, the men were dangerous people fueled by their hatred for Jews and America, prosecutors said. The plotters managed to get their hands on what they thought were lethal explosives and a surface-to-air missile system, only to find out that they were inert devices supplied by the FBI in a sting operation.
Um..., no. They have no idea what they were doing or the trouble they are in. Just put some place that they can not hurt someone and it at that. The cheney family and the republicans are inviting the real terrorist to attack us again. Let's stick with going after them...

Obama says US prisons tough enough for detainees
By STEVEN R. HURST
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama forcefully defended his plans to close the Guantanamo detention camp Thursday and said some of the terror suspects held there would be brought to top-security prisons in the United States despite fierce opposition in Congress. He spoke one day after the Senate voted resoundingly to deny him money to close the prison, and he decried "fear-mongering" that he said had led to such opposition.
He insisted the transfer would not endanger Americans and promised to work with lawmakers to develop a system for holding detainees who can't be tried and can't be turned loose from the Navy-run prison in Cuba.
Hehe, not try and be a pseudo journalist or anything. I just curious so I asked.

I just wanted to know if Illinois had the ability to house gitmo
detainees? And if there would be some sort of why for the state to
benefit from it financially.
I say we can handle them along with any federal funds that come with them.
