If you live in a state that is sinking fast, you might as well have a big funny fat guy as governor. Such is the case in Illinois, where Governor J.B. Pritzker follows “the science”.
“The science” tells us Illinois is bankrupt. Governor J.B. hoped to get around that with a “Fair Tax” amendment to the Illinois Constitution, but the voters rejected the proposal in November 2020. One Patrick Pfingsten examines the latest Illinois skullduggery at https://www.theillinoize.com/
From Pfingsten and other sources the buzz is, something is cooking now under the lid in this, our Land of Lincoln. The pot appears to be set to boil over in the wee hours of this Friday/Saturday, when Illinoisans are fast asleep.
Ersjdamoo is still waiting for Illinois to reveal the 2020 death statistics. Throughout the state, horse-drawn carts must be operating, with a man calling as he goes, “Bring out your dead!” The 2020 numbers had not been released as of early January 7, 2021.

Lucky we are here to have a governor who follows “the science”. “The science” has whispered into the ear of Governor J.B. and told him to raise the tiers. Raising the tiers means the restaurants cannot have indoor dining, for one thing. Another is that the public library has closed its doors (ouch!).
“The science” though is coming into question, suggesting we might have here a false god. (Do not have false gods, orders the First Commandment. And notice it is the Number 1 Commandment, preceding all others.)
Even though “the science” says the coroner-virus originated in China, a dissident god says traces of the virus were found in a March 2019 sewage sample from Spain, nine months before the COVID-19 disease was identified in China.  And not just Spain but the coroner-virus may have been in California before China announced the outbreak, a study suggests. 
“The science” told us to rely on the Corman-Drosten test to determine who had the coroner-virus. Again though, a dissident god, also calling themself “the science”, found “[t]he published RT-qPCR protocol for detection and dignostics of 2019-nCoV and the manuscript suffer from numerous technical and scientific errors, including insufficient primer design, a problematic and insufficient RT-qPCR protocol, and the absence of an accurate test validation.” For the full report, try this link: https://tinyurl.com/y4osyo8v
“Drosten” of the Corman-Drosten test is Christian Drosten, of the Charité University Hospital in Berlin. He is “the Anthony Fauci of Germany”. An article in May in Bild, a German newspaper, accused Drosten of having “worked dishonestly,” and peddled “false conclusions” about the infectivity of the SARS-Co-V2 virus. 
Oh dear, oh dear. What are followers of “the science” to do, with heresies now appearing? Maybe it’s time to bring back the Spanish Inquisition!
“I didn’t expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition!”, says the mill worker. And then suddenly Cardinal Ximénez (Michael Palin) and his assistants, Cardinal Biggles (Terry Jones) and Cardinal Fang (Terry Gilliam) burst into the room and Ximénez shouts, “NO-body expects the Spanish Inquisition!”
