Top 25 CEOs earn more than their company's tax bills

Top 25 CEOs earn more than their company's tax bills


And yet they have the nerve to complain about fair regulations.

Look, I'm all in for anyone making a decent buck, and a comfortable living. Yet, when you screw over your employees by slashing the workforce, paying meager wages, and polluting the environment, all for that almighty dollar, you just can't honestly have that proverbial cake, and eat it also. You just have to pay your fair share, and stop bitching.

Just remember that famous quote about a "camel going through the eye of a needle...".

Peace!

Roskam, business leaders bash Obama’s new regulations - Chicago Sun-Times

Roskam, business leaders bash Obama’s new regulations - Chicago Sun-Times


Aw poor babies.

Here's an idea for the less regulation gang. How about we let your waste water, and pollution be done next to your homes? Naturally they would have a major hissy-fit if that should ever happen. So why should we let them do it to us? This is what I would call "Fair".

They want less regulations to foul the waters, and pollute the air? Let them, no, make them, live right next to their dumpsters, sewage runoffs, and blast furnaces. A move like that will truly shut them the hell up. Remember greed merchants, there are times when you really get what you wish for.

Hard times prompts cash-strapped consumers to turn to pawn shops - Chicago Sun-Times

Hard times prompts cash-strapped consumers to turn to pawn shops - Chicago Sun-Times


Well this article should not come as a shock to anyone on the front-lines around the country.

Remember when they told us that people will not get "cost of living adjustments" because the last administration did so much "Off the Books" slight of hand accounting? Ever since that announcement, people on fixed incomes have been getting reamed, along with those making minimum wage. Yet, you can't help but scratch your head, when you thumb through any paper in the nation, and see these strange headlines claiming, "consumer spending up" a percent here, or there. Yeah, it's up, because as this other headline informs you, people need money for FOOD!

I don't know about you, but I think those people that announced that no "Cost Of Living Adjustment" was needed, should go back and redo the math. I'm betting those jaws will hit tables galore when they find out how much, prices have shot past the average working, and fixed income families in this country.

Chicago gang rivals band together to control neighborhood drug trade - Chicago Sun-Times

Chicago gang rivals band together to control neighborhood drug trade - Chicago Sun-Times



I love stories of this nature. It gives the reader so much information on the failed "War on Drugs", and the criminal mentality in taking advantage of such a failure.

But, the best part about this article is, if this newspaper can gather so much information on theses activities, just imagine what law enforcement from local, state, and federal sources have on these gangs? And then again, if they have been in operation for so long, what are they paying the cops? Well, think about it. This article wasn't written overnight. This took planning, research, interviews, and surveillance among most things. So if your local newspaper, has so much access to information of this illegal activity, shouldn't the elected representatives have the same knowledge? And what exactly are they doing about it?

This area has always been a "Known" drug spot for decades. Let me repeat that last word, DECADES. What does that tell you about the "War On Drugs"? What does it tell you about the elected representatives serving this area on the local, county, state, and federal level? What does it tell you about law enforcement at the same levels, since this is a "KNOWN AREA" with a multiple decades history?

This is the reason I love articles of this nature. They demand that you think, ask questions, demand answers/solutions, and put the onus on elected officials, and law enforcement to "Earn Their Keep" of our taxpayer dollars.

‘Recurrent’ open records requesters could face delays under new law - Chicago Sun-Times

‘Recurrent’ open records requesters could face delays under new law - Chicago Sun-Times


Sounds like some people have things, many things to hide.

Well guess what folks? Times have changed. Technology has taken off with almost instant access to all kinds of information. So when you of the "Not too Bright Class" sign legislation of this nature, you only just arose more suspicion. The people of The State of Illinois have every right to know who, or what is writing legislation we pay you people to do, fill your campaign coffers, pay to play, and hire unqualified friends, relatives, and lobbyist.

This certainly doesn't look good Governor. Attempting to stigmatize ordinary, concerned citizens as "Recurrent Requester's" is a tad bit, defaming if I must say. What's the matter? Got something to hide? There is good legislation, and then there is bad legislation. This one Governor, just stinks.

Illinois Medicaid's managed care effort stumbles

Illinois Medicaid's managed care effort stumbles


I think the State should scrap this nightmare, and simply focus on graft and fraud.

Forcing people into something that just isn't working, is never a good idea. Go back to what works, and improve on it. Or, we could always give the people of the State of Illinois, the same health care plan you get at our expense.

Next time, get some "Feedback" from the doctors, and hospitals. And as always, focus on waste, fraud, and abuse. You'd be surprised at the huge amounts of money you would really save.

DUMP TOM MILLER NOW!

In a nutshell, it is Tom Miller that should be "REMOVED". WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2011 1:29:00 PM story date Schneiderman removed from mortgage deal committee BY JESSICA M. KARMASEK ericschneiderman.jpg Schneiderman NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) -- New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has been removed from an executive committee negotiating a nationwide foreclosure settlement with the country's top lenders. Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who is leading the committee, said Schneiderman has "actively worked to undermine" its effort. State attorneys general, the U.S. Justice Department, Treasury Department and the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau are in the midst of negotiating a deal with the five mortgage servicers -- Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and Ally Financial Inc. Miller, in a statement Tuesday, pointed to Schneiderman's refusal to join a negotiation committee in June. "Since that time, New York has actively worked to undermine the very same multistate group that it had spent the previous nine months working very closely with," the Iowa attorney general said, according to The Washington Post. "While we certainly respect the right of any state to choose to no longer participate in a multistate and to pursue another path, working to actively undermine a multistate while still a member of the executive committee simply doesn't make sense, is unprecedented and is unacceptable." Schneiderman is currently doing his own comprehensive investigation into the mortgage industry. In May, he sought records from Bank of America and two other Wall Street banking giants, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. In June, he requested documents from a handful of financial institutions -- including Bank of New York Mellon Corp. and Deutsche Bank AG -- that act as trustees for mortgage bond trusts. And earlier this month he filed a lawsuit against a proposed $8.5 billion settlement between Bank of New York Mellon Corp. and Bank of America. The deal covers more than 500 troubled mortgage pools issued by Countrywide Financial. Bank of America bought Countrywide in 2008. According to the lawsuit, Schneiderman alleges that Bank of New York misled and breached its duties to investors. He has asked a judge to reject the settlement and says Bank of New York should pay penalties and restitution. Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden also has joined the fight against the proposed deal. On top of his own investigation, Schneiderman has come out against the ongoing settlement negotiations, particularly the issue of liability releases. The nation's top lenders say they want protection from additional claims over and investigations into their mortgage practices. Servicing, Schneiderman contends, is at the center of the proposed $20 billion deal with the banks. And he's not the only attorney general to argue the point. Nevada's Catherine Cortez Masto last week said she was going to be "cautious" about whether to sign a settlement with the five banks, especially if it could impact her state's own litigation. Like Schneiderman, Masto is conducting her own foreclosure investigations. And she's not the only one to be wary of the settlement. Biden and Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley both have said they would hesitate signing a deal that could protect the banks from continuing mortgage investigations. But when will the deal get done? The probe began in October with inquiries into so-called "robosigning" practices by several mortgage companies, and has since broadened into identifying and addressing additional alleged improper foreclosure practices. A spokesman for Miller told Radio Iowa Tuesday that it is still unclear how long it will take to reach a settlement with the banks. "It's a very complicated case. There are a lot of moving parts and there are a lot of people involved," Geoff Greenwood said. From Legal Newsline: Reach Jessica Karmasek by email at jessica@legalnewsline.com.

Survey: Employers consider ending health coverage - Chicago Sun-Times

Survey: Employers consider ending health coverage - Chicago Sun-Times


Well if this isn't a great case for "Medicare For All", I'm mystified.

The insurance companies are putting the big hurt on small and medium sized business owners to the point that they are seriously considering not offering health insurance, is all the reason voters need, to get on the backs of our Congressional representatives, and give the people Medicare For All. Hell, we are already paying into it, so why not?

Come on voters, this is a great opportunity for us to get the GOP out of the House of Representatives, and whittle their numbers down in the Senate. They have already demonstrated to all, that they don't give a rat's behind about us. We all should have health insurance, and since we are already paying for one when we retire, we might as well benefit from it before such a day comes.

The insurance companies have gone mad with greed, time to make them feel a little competition.

Police seize 12,000 pounds of pot on West Side - Chicago Sun-Times

Police seize 12,000 pounds of pot on West Side - Chicago Sun-Times


Imagine if that was legal, and the tax revenue that came with it?

Talk about closing budget gaps. Folks, it's the sensible thing for our elected leaders to do. Just look at all the data collected, and just legalize it already. Why let the drug barons rake in all that cash? Why continue turning a blinds eye to the impressive revenue this product can, and will bring in? Remember the zealots and "Prohibition"? That just didn't work out so well did it? Well, guess what? This isn't either.

As long as there is crime, the public, and private prison industry will stay in business. We will still have our dummies that will rob, rape, murder, extort, drunk drive, and engage in domestic disturbances. 1936 is a long time ago people. Just imagine what all that tax revenue could do? Yep, fully staffed police departments, fire, emt's, fixed roads, sidewalks, parks, and newly built, modern schools, and hospitals. Wow! That sure would be nice wouldn't it? If not, you can truly expect a city income tax on the horizon. And that would be dumber than a box of rocks, when you have all that tax revenue sitting right in front of you.

Legalize it, and just tax it like smokes, and booze. Just think of the extra revenue will ya?

Illinois Republicans dream big at state fair rally

Illinois Republicans dream big at state fair rally


If you believe in Big Government, Soul Crushing Dictatorships, this is the party for you.

Just look at all the recorded history of the GOP. Massive spending, deregulation, low wages, suppression of women's rights, minorities, destroyers of the air, land, and waterways of the world. This is, and shall always be "the I got mine, screw you gang." It is a proven fact that they eat their own, should you decide going against their Theocratic Dictatorship. Look no further than the States that are attempting, and some doing, at stripping away the rights people have gave their lives for.

Yep, these are the people that hope for nothing more but a Soul Crushing Theocratic Dictatorship. Keep voting for them and that will be exactly what you'll get.

7 teens charged with mob action in Chinatown robbery, attack

7 teens charged with mob action in Chinatown robbery, attack


Another sad legacy in great parenting failures.

Maybe we should start fining the parents hundreds of dollars a pop? I know there will be those saying it "Targets the Poor", but just throwing them in juvenile detention, or jail doesn't appear to be solving the problem. Some would argue that it only sharpens their criminal acumen. I suggest hitting the parents in the wallet/purse. It's an effective strategy, and it works. Parents will never tolerate illegal behavior in their children especially when it affects their pocketbooks.

Think back for a moment when good old Ronald Regan set out to institute policy that made the infamous drug dealer come out of homes, and apartments and into the streets? That was done to sweep the streets of these criminal types, and flood our prison systems as they are today. They (State & Federal Officials), did this by telling homeowners, and landlords that they will "Take away your homes and buildings" when dealers are caught inside them doing such illegal activity, like selling drugs. Naturally, parents did not want to take that chance, and told them that chose such an endeavor, "Not In My Home". Henceforth, out on the streets they go, making it easier for law enforcement to round them up.

Now with today's undisciplined youth running amok robbing people as mobs, we should hold the parents accountable via hefty fines. This action, will make parents demand that these youths will curtail such activities by giving them serious ultimatums of choice. Such as, out on the streets forever to be swept up like before, or, getting back in school and becoming a more productive member of society.

There is no onus on the parents as of today, unless you count the night time curfew, yet what about during the daylight hours, when attacks like this occur? A suggestion of this nature, controversial, possibly, but at the very least, it's some food for thought. I view it as a tool for avoiding more parental failures in the future.

Student drug testing may have only small effect in reducing use

Student drug testing may have only small effect in reducing use



Why waste money on something that should be a parental responsibility? Who got lobbied for making another company/corporation richer? Kids coming to school under the influence fall squarely on the parents.

Let's get rid of this failed, and flawed policy, and place the financial, and responsibility burden where it belongs, in the home of those students. I really do become irked by people that yammer about "Government Intrusion" into their lives,when their own children are coming to school, public, and private, high. If you can't get them under control, pay up. Why should our elected officials use taxpayer money to pay a drug testing company/corporation for your lack of responsibility? If you really want government out of your lives, stop being irresponsible parents, and monitor your child's behavior. Teach them respect, not only for themselves, but for others. Drug testing children is a very bad sign folks. It demonstrates a total lack of responsibility on the parental front.

Why oh why are we even doing this?

Hit-run suspect allegedly didn’t stop because he had to deliver marijuana - Chicago Sun-Times

Hit-run suspect allegedly didn’t stop because he had to deliver marijuana - Chicago Sun-Times


Well, what else can I say but massive stupidity appears to be the norm.

This idiot made sure he didn't have any pot on him by selling it, so he could not be slapped with additional charges. WTF? A person is no longer with the world because of greed, and stupidity. My instinct calls for an epic rant for the legalization of marijuana because of this very much avoidable tragedy, but I'm holding my peace for the time being. Just reading this article makes ones blood boil.

Massive stupidity folks, just massive.

Chicago-area apartment rents rise again, trend not slowing down - Chicago Sun-Times

Chicago-area apartment rents rise again, trend not slowing down - Chicago Sun-Times


Talk about "every which way but loose" seems appropriate here.

Another article within this paper tells a tale of home sales going up, but prices falling: http://www.suntimes.com/business/7138555-420/home-sales-in-chicago-area-jump-192-percent-in-july-but-prices-fall.html. So one would think, now is a good time for renters to save some cash, plunk down that elusive 20%, and purchase such homes. But there may be a problem with such logic. During the housing burst, many of these renters possibly lost such homes via foreclosure, walking away, or bankruptcy. So with that being said, an issue of "credit worthiness" may rear its ugly head.

Hell of a conundrum we have here. Landlords jacking renters rates up with many of them having no other alternatives. Getting hit from "every which way but loose", truly does appear appropriate indeed.

Drought losses hit $5.2 billion in Texas

Drought losses hit $5.2 billion in Texas



Huh! Your State is melting, and losing money? Words, but no Actions Governor, explain that?

Interesting. Meanwhile as the media circus follows the Texas Governor around like a female dog in heat, not one reporter has asked him about the horrible conditions happening in his State that he swore to protect, and what plans, or measures he's taking.

One would think this guy should be back in his home state showing some leadership, but, as we can see from his "Actions", that just isn't going to happen. We all know what this governor will do. He'll go hat in hand to FEMA begging for money, and any type of assistance, then turn around and decry federal government meddling in state issues. That my readers, is the classic definition of a hypocrite.

One of the military units I had the privilege of serving in, has this proud motto: "Deeds Not Words". Governor Perry, your state is melting. What are you doing about it, besides traveling the country talking? Shouldn't you be home? We hear your "Words", yet see no "Actions".
