I saw one at Homestyle Cafe yesterday, but people were sitting in the booth next to it, preventing me from inspecting for a Paid For. The image posted above looks like it has a union bug at the bottom, but I’m still interested in exactly who paid for them.
Or maybe “State Employees” is a new CBA basketball team? Ok, I’m on a roll here….the point guard (who is captain of the team) has no idea how to play basketball. The center just holds on to the ball and won’t let the others play unless it’s to his own benefit. The two forwards (both Republicans) are rarely seen and are considered irrelevant to the team. As for the other point guard…
I see these too; I’m not sure exactly what they mean. I support State employees while supporting pension reform and retirees paying for healthcare on a sliding scale based on income.

Do they really? Or do they just do that to lure them and milk away the money? Of course the medical community supports them to buts demands they pay up front rather wait the 500 days for the state check.
Who gets credit for this brainstorm?
Does Ty Fahner and The Millionaires boycott these establishments.
So many questions.
Capt Fax —- get back out there with your notebook and nubby pencils. Get some facts pronto.
And do before the workforce starts to wash up at 3:45!
While recently visiting a local restaurant Gov. Quinn began to see signs of the will of the people. Shortly after that he gave a press conference and stated “My goal is to make the will of the people who agree with me the law of the land.”

Do state employees support us?
Is the state going to reduce its payroll this year.
Been seeing more of these around Springfield, usually at the smaller locally owned businesses.
I know the restaurant I was in yesterday has always had a lot of state empoyees / retirees as lunch customers. A few of the restaurants even have 1/2 price specials for government employees / retirees with IDs on their slower days, like Monday.
If anyone’s paying attention, I checked one today and there’s no other printing besides what you see in the pic above and the union bug. The owner of the establishment was not forthcoming in identifying who dropped it off, nor did she seem like she was hiding it. I think someone asked to put it up and she said yes, no mention of outside groups.
We support the state workers…they are part of our communities ,our neighbors & friends, still employed, put money into our local economies & yes pay taxes too(an extra couple % this pay period I might add).

My vote is for Oswego Willy as winner of this contest.
I actually laughed out loud at this one which I consider the winner:
“…and we are serving ‘Pat Quinn Open Two-Face Sandwiches too!”
As a State Employee, I would give this one 1st runner up. I only chuckled at this one:
“…and out(sic) Alphabet Soup is missing the ‘C’, the ‘M’ and the ‘S’. You’re welcome.”
