  1. - siriusly - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 1:58 pm:

    Reading the Cap Fax blog on my phone. While fishing.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:01 pm:

    Cooking for 50 men, making cannoli too


  3. - Bored Chairman - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:01 pm:

    Basement. Doritos. Wifi. Cap fax.


  4. - RNUG - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:02 pm:

    I’m going to be traveling (already started a bit), and I expect to spend a lot of the summer playing with cars. During any downtime, read some more mystery and history books.

    If I’m in town, occasionally lift a few beverages with some friends locked out by the State if it comes to that.


  5. - Team Sleep - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:02 pm:

    I’ll be going to Lego Land to see if I can build some alternate universe of working government.


  6. - nona - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:03 pm:

    Watching national Fox News play up the impasse by depicting a heroic Republican taking on the mean Obama Democrats.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:03 pm:

    Going to Legislator golf outings with fearing to be seen…


  8. - Hyman Roth - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:04 pm:

    I want everyone to enjoy the cake……so…enjoy!


  9. - Commander Norton - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:04 pm:

    Plotting all the distances from which I can drive back in 48 hours. I hear the Northwest Territories are beautiful this time of year.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:06 pm:

    I guess my internship for the Legislature will actually be busier than first thought


  11. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:08 pm:

    Copying the emails from “ck” and then drive to all the towns she listed in them and have the elected officials of those towns sign them


  12. - chicon - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:09 pm:

    I will be watching the regular posters here get all crazed because the governor is actually trying to do what he said he’d do. This is a novel concept in these parts! Watching the beneficiaries of the status quo squirm when threatened is fun.


  13. - Kippax Blue - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:11 pm:

    Going to work every weekday only to find out I am still locked out.


  14. - Just Me - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:13 pm:

    Working a temp job for the State of Illinois.

    (actually, there is some truth in that.)


  15. - siriusly - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:13 pm:

    Reformin’ Legislatin’ Broadcastin’


  16. - Huh? - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:16 pm:

    Working for the state and trying not to get deleted on capfax.


  17. - Anonymous - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    Save money. Maybe do a lot of walking (yeah, I’m a state employee).


  18. - Linus - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    Doubling-down on failed political systems.


  19. - jazzy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Livin for the weekends. ….wait with the way things are going everyday could be the weekend….gotta stock up while I got some change jigglin in my pocket.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Write a treatment about a wealthy man running and winning the Governirship of a big state and how his staff is continually putting out or lighting fires.

    It’s a comedy.

    Watch it get turned down dozens of times as unrealistic…


  21. - RNUG - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    -ow-

    Maybe I’ll pass you on the road. I’m going to be in the Chicago burb’s in a couple of weeks.


  22. - Popcorn - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Eating popcorn and sitting on the couch watching the Godfather Trilogy - I mean, the State of Illinois Trilogy… with “Turnaround” commercials.


  23. - RNUG - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:21 pm:

    == It’s a comedy. ==

    Wrong audience. Sell it as a reality show …


  24. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:21 pm:

    Send mock emails as Trover or Brown to each other.

    Might be fun..,


  25. - Been There - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:22 pm:

    ===* Your summer plans?====
    Anyone with “plans” is delusional


  26. - Minnow - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:23 pm:

    Pull a chair up to the TV and breathlessly await the stunning ads from the governor. Because I just didn’t enough of them before the election. Not!


  27. - William Jennings Bryan - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:23 pm:

    Enjoying the memory of my father who died on April 24. He was a
    WWII vet and a 34 years CPD Officer. Miss him every day. Calm Winds and Following Seas Dad.


  28. - MrJM - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:24 pm:

    Free motorcycle lessons.

    – MrJM


  29. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:25 pm:

    - RNUG -,

    Selling as a reality show, I don’t think Lance or Z will let Rauner sign the waivers..,


  30. - jazzy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:25 pm:

    Thinking about applyin for a dog walkin job maybe rauner would hire me. I may need some cash come July 1

    Starting up “Victim Anonymous.” Membership limited to those living in the Springfield cocoon.

    Free membership to those Democrats leading veto proof majorities who are claiming to be held hostage by a single man who had the audacity to challenge them. Double free membership to those claiming to be hostages!


  35. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:34 pm:

  39. - Rauner's Right Hand - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:44 pm:

    I plan to help Bruce pass his ballot initiative that takes away voting rights from any one that makes less than $100,000 a year. Poor people deserve no rights whatsoever.


  40. - Corporate Thug - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:45 pm:

    My plans?!? I’ve already got my popcorn. Waiting for the stuff to hit the fan.

    And, As I have in previous overtime sessions, I plan to wear the same suit everyday overtime session day in protest.

    By July, that thing should be RIPE.

    Popcorn and reading about Rauner trying to punk Madigan.


  46. - bored now - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 3:07 pm:

    oh, i’ll be in springfield for the greatest heavyweight boxing match of this century!

    i’m betting, though, that gov. rauner is an older version of mitt romney…


  47. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 3:08 pm:

    Guess - Todd - won’t be my Kendall County neighbor anymore…


  48. - CD - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 3:10 pm:

    Asking all those union members, everyday how they feel now, about voting for Rauner.

    Teaching Oswego Willy how to cook for 50 guys and make cannoli’s.


  54. - Union Leader - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 4:02 pm:

    Bringing Governor Rauner to the community I work for and asking him,”do you really want to take away those community funds, after seeing how badly they are needed?”


  55. - kimocat - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 4:40 pm:

    chicon — liking that schadenfreude. It’s rather unbecoming.


  56. - Wensicia - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 5:05 pm:

  57. - zonz - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 5:11 pm:

    First:

    Then:
    make big $$$ by authoring & copyrighting a new definition for “reform” as it applies in Rauner-world
