1 killed, 5 injured in shootings across city

1 killed, 5 injured in shootings across city


I'm betting these stories are in papers across the nation. It really makes a person stop and think, just what exactly are we paying these politicians, republican, and democrat for?

For some strange logic, which many cannot fathom, our elected politicians just can't bring themselves together and enact a massive jobs bill. You see, when people are busy working for a living, they don't really see a need for hanging out on the streets selling dope, robbing, etc, etc. And we know why that happens. They have to be at work, and don't have idle hands.

Yet our elected politicians think passing "Open-Carry", "Concealed-Carry", "De-Funding Planned Parenthood", installing mini dictatorships, stripping unions rights to collectively bargain, returning to "Poll Taxes", Jim Crow era voting restrictions, freeze workers pay but not their own, willing to deny you universal health care, yet gladly take plans we pay for, and of all insane things, a "Person-Hood" legislation/ballot initiative thinking this will solve all our nations ills. What in the hell are these people smoking/snorting, injecting, or all of the above?

Banks went wild on consumers, and themselves when they repealed the Glass-Steagall Act back in the 1990's, which caused the insanity we witness now. They got bailed out, while people are getting kicked out of homes they willing, or UN-willing got duped into. Politicians gave them our hard earned tax dollars, and gave the people, the middle finger.

So here we are, reliving the days of the wild, wild west where lawlessness prevails, and innocent civilians have to jump through hoops to legally buy a weapon of choice just to protect their families. So again I ask, what are we paying them for?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, they also are using Gestapo-like tactics on peaceful protesters in a vain attempt at suppressing Freedom of Speech, and Assembly. Can't wait for the book burnings, and Salem Witch Hunts to begin.

Happy New Year!

Talk About Power Hungry

Why is it some "Elected Leaders" think The Constitution of The United States is just a piece of paper that has no meaning, or power over them?

I get the "States Rights Argument", but turning OUR States into mini dictatorships, is beyond repulsive. Here's a piece is such legislation that wants nothing more than to suppress Freedom of Speech, Expression, and Assembly for addressing our grievances. Check it out below:

Syrian forces kill 25 protesters, monitors reach cities

Syrian forces kill 25 protesters, monitors reach cities



Strange how little outrage, and intervention as compared to Tunisia, and Libya?

I wonder if Syria has "Nukes"? Could that be a reason the Arab, and African Unions are not sending troops? Could that be why neither of these entities asked The United Nations for military intervention? If I remember correctly, there was kind of a "Let's see how it plays out in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, and Bahrain". Yet when it came to Libya, it was a "Let's hurry up and get rid of this butt-head.

I just find this "Hands-Off" approach a bit odd. Don't you? What does Syria have that makes these other countries sit back and watch?

Cops: 2 juveniles charged in CTA platform shooting

Cops: 2 juveniles charged in CTA platform shooting



Charges as juveniles? A 16 years old has a gun, illegally obtained of course, knowingly discharges it (Intent), striking his intended target, and is charged as a juvenile? Really? That late at night, with a 14 year old (Parents, Curfew?) packing.

Now we see why our legislators suck. Let's see if any of you can make it a felony for any juvenile, with a no doubt, unregistered, illegally obtained firearm in this state. Sounds like a plan right? Let's make it happen.

14 and 16 years old out at that time. So much for the curfew crackdown. Charged as juveniles? Really?

Sears plunges nearly 25% on store closings


I TOLD YOU SO!


Classic example of extortion. They shook us tax payers down for cuts, breaks, and free rides, and folded like a cheap suit. This is a never-ending cycle that politicians keep falling for time, after time. When will they ever learn? It didn't matter if they got those perks or not. They were going to shut these places down, kick employees out, and move on to another State, or overseas, and do the same thing over, and over again.

Boy! I hate to tell ya I told you so but, I told you so.

Medicare and Mediscare

Medicare and Mediscare


Naturally you should expect this kind of "Editorial" from what some people deem a "Conservative Newspaper".

Here's my problem with this endorsement on this so-called plan. 1. All the details are not out. 2. The parts that are out, should scare the holy crap out of people not yet at the age of qualifying for Social Security, and Medicare. With any "Voucher System" you are allotted a certain amount of funds. After that is exhausted, you are S.O.L. If your not up on that term, it simply means you are shit out of luck.

If anyone could "Predict" when they get sick, prevention would always be the first step. This voucher system is nothing more than a prediction on your health. It can't, and will never work. A perfect example. You have used the last amounts of a voucher on treatment or a doctor visit. You leave the hospital, or clinic and get hit by a vehicle. Guess what? You got it. That money is coming out of your pocket one way or the other.

So people please do yourself a favor. Don't ever fall for this type of reporting/opinion when all the details haven't even been released. The parts that are out there should give you pause. If they want to seriously do anything for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, they need to stop the insane tax cuts for the wealthy in this country. That is revenue for these programs, and yes folks, there are many a wealthy individuals out there using these same programs. For a conservative newspaper, you really should have reserved your opinion on something that hasn't been fully released.

Islamists kill dozens in Nigeria Christmas bombs

Islamists kill dozens in Nigeria Christmas bombs


As much as people refuse to acknowledge the fact, Ishmael, and Issac were half brothers and they got along.

No matter which book you adhere, and read, killing innocent men, women, and children is against the word, and laws of your Creator.

May peace and blessing follow you all.

Newt Gingrich launching petition drive for Illinois Republican primary ballot

Newt Gingrich launching petition drive for Illinois Republican primary ballot


I mean seriously people! Unless you like unpaved roads, child labor, women barefoot and in the kitchen, wealthy Whites that can only vote, and a return to slavery, go right ahead and vote for any GOP candidate. They are coming after all of us. That means you policeman, fireman, teachers, managers, and workers in all industries, unless you are banking a million a year.

If you think that's over the top, just look no further than what they are doing in the States they control. Stripping people of basic rights, letting corporations ravage, and pollute the lands given too them practically for free. Trying to impose their will on women's health issues, allowing people's homes to burn down, and completely installing dictatorships in Michigan.

Do you really want a return to their version of the "Good Old Days" where women, and people of color "Know Their Place"? The motto for the World Trade Center is "Never Forget." So I implore you, to never forget what they did in those other States. Person-hood Amendments? Appointed/Handpicked mini-dictators? Poll Taxes? When it's easier to get a gun, then for you or I too vote, something is very wrong. When they refuse to allow a vote on repairing bridges, roads, our means of public transportation, employing more police, fire, and teachers, something is very wrong. They have told you in your face that they will destroy Social Security. They will even let a soldier and his or her family lose their home by refusing to vote on legislation that will prevent such from happening.

The only way, we the people, can fix this mess they put us in is very simple. The Glass-Steagall Act must be restored. Violators of the Voting Rights Act, Roe versus Wade must be incarcerated. And those installing dictatorships must be tried for treason. I say this because those people are indeed violating The Constitution of The United States. We must install a Super Majority in the Senate, and House of Representative's that will truly reflect the direction this country must take. And that direction is forward. I don't know about the rest of you but, seriously people, Jim Crow, The Willie Lynch Papers, and The Salem Witch Hunts isn't a time I could ever look fondly back on. "Never Forget."

CPS to lengthen high school days by 36 minutes next year

CPS to lengthen high school days by 36 minutes next year



Hey it's better than nothing.

These kids need a better grasp of understanding the world around them. One could say, things have definitely changed dramatically since the invention of the typewriter. Let's face the facts folks. We are "Global". Information is just a key-punch away for millions of people around the world. Well, maybe not the average citizen of North Korea, and other deeply impoverished countries. But, it's there, in libraries, cafes, and dozens of tech locations.

Our teachers must drive home the point that the world we live in now, is simply zipping along at a much faster clip, from an information standpoint. And it is how that information is used, will either make, or brake us as a country. Extending classroom time for high school students is a good thing. In my view, it should never had been tinkered with in the first place. So teachers, please utilize that time exploring with your students, current events around the globe.

'Birther' bid to challenge Obama's right to be president rejected

'Birther' bid to challenge Obama's right to be president rejected


There is just no limit on a person's bigotry and hatred.

The really sad part about this group of people, they all claim they are Christian. That clearly cannot be, for the simple reason of the hatred they hold for this President. The last time I checked, Christian's just don't hate. But these Christians have so much vile, and venom within them, they are clearly blinded by the message the person they claim to follow, explained unto them. If they feel that way about this President, what does that say for all people of his color?

There are numerous examples, better yet, quoted rantings from many sources. Leroy Newton called him "A Food Stamp President". Sara Palin bitched about a "Christmas Card", forgetting to do any research on past President's "Christmas Cards". She also failed to mention that her buddies at the NRA have a big "Season's Greetings" on their own card. Not a Merry Christmas to be found.

Since there is no limit for these so-called Christian's, how much did that snowballs chance in Hell lawsuit cost you? You could have used that money for oh, I don't know, helping those less fortunate? That would seem like a very Christian thing for all of you to accomplish. Oh, I forgot. Your bigotry and hatred blinds you from such noble acts.

White Castle tests adding booze to its menu

White Castle tests adding booze to its menu


Okay, let's put it out there.

Many people go there already under the influence. So now you want them completely passing out inside, or in the drive-thru? You've seen the studies. Marijuana and booze use is up across the board, in age and gender. You've also seen those actors making "The Run" in that semi-funny movie. People have been making that White Castle Run for years in search of quelling the munchies.

So now, we have a few brain farts across the border thinking of another way for boosting their income without regard for other people's safety. The late night castle runners are already stoned. That isn't a secret. If they do this, "One More For The Road" should be the new motto.

Damn! All this talk of sliders is giving me a craving.

The Hundred Years' German War

The Hundred Years' German War


Short and sweet yet again.


This is really an eye-opening article. It hits that proverbial nail on the head, and we here in the United States should "start saving..."

We've lost our way with this consumer society mentality. Time for us to get back to being a manufacturing might once again. Read this paragraph:


"Germans on average worked harder and smarter than their European neighbors -- investing rather than consuming, saving rather than spending, and going to bed when others to the south were going to dinner. Recipients of their largesse bitterly complain that German banks lent them money to buy German products in a sort of 21st-century commercial serfdom. True enough, but that still begs the question why Berlin, and not Rome or Madrid, was able to pull off such lucrative mercantilism."

"A blatant political move."

Yet you went and wasted taxpayer funds taking this to court. How fiscally conservative is that? How much money did we lose by your fiscally conservative, not a snowballs chance in hell, waste of time legal challenge?

And you wonder why people hold you in such low standings. Yes, it was "A blatant political move."

Newt Gingrich says he'd defy Supreme Court rulings he opposed



Short and sweet today.

I'm no fan of our current Corporate Court. But if any person is dumb enough to elect this guy President, he will make history as the first, and only President to go straight too prison. This guy just told anyone within earshot, he'll violate the Constitution, and any law he doesn't agree with. Iowa, please feel free and waste your vote for a future criminal.

Digging a pension hole

Digging a pension hole



Boy this is just plain theft.

Here's an idea. Hey unions, how about putting that dues money you collect into a credit union for your employees? Hey State, and Local representatives. How about letting government employees put the same in credit unions? With the both of you entities doing such, it would make it very difficult for you to raid, and pillage those funds. It's all about taking the money out of politics. If you don't have an incentive to steal, you just will not bother, and finally start doing what the people elected you for.

Look unions, you are already under attack from the same people that came hat in hand begging you for members money. You should have told them to fuck off when they invented "The Employee Contribution". It was a scam then, and still is today. Once "We The People" wake up and resist the lure of bogus quick cash schemes, the middle class will be much better off because we will have the power, and not corporations dictating to our elected officials what's best for this country.

This is what happens when we were put into a consumer coma. They just flat out stole from us.

Tax fight gets nastier as government shutdown looms

Tax fight gets nastier as government shutdown looms


Mission accomplished GOP/Bag Party.

You lied your way into office promising "Jobs", "Repeal of Healthcare", and "Less Government". The only one of those that you kept, "Less Government". You haven't done Jack-Shit on the jobs front. You knew for a fact the repeal of healthcare was never going to happen, because if you did do it, the voters would have made you pay for your own. And to top all that off, all that work Mitt did in Massachusetts, would have been ruled unconstitutional years ago. So with less government being the thing you do best, corporations are free to fleece the people you "SWORE" to protect.

It comes as no surprise that your "Approval Ratings" are in the toilet. Yet you could care less, because in nearly two years you haven't done Jack-Shit but suck up taxpayer money feeding yourself at the corporate pig-pen built for you. You go on television with constant lies about programs that will actually help people and small companies across this country, about how such policies will "Kill Jobs", when it is you that enabled big corporations to ship such jobs overseas.

Yep, you guys, and gals really have proved that doing Jack-Shit is your cup of tea. But look around you. People are coming out of that FOX induced coma, and taking to the streets. That means voters. And no matter how you try and make it more difficult for them, they will come out in droves and vote. They have one thing on their side you completely forgot about. It's named the Constitution. And that, is something even your appointed Corporate Court can't ignore. If they decide to do so, we can always have another "Continental Congress Convention" again. Just keep doing Jack-Shit.

Americans returning electronic gadgets in record numbers

Americans returning electronic gadgets in record numbers



Now that is a very interesting finding from this study. "Buyers Remorse".

Now when you think about it, that phrase could have several meanings. But I have this feeling, with all the hype given to certain gadgets, it appears that they just didn't live up too hype. In other words, they sucked, or simply wasn't needed.

If you have a desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or the IPad, or all, why do you need more? Buyers Remorse simply means, this is excessive, and I just don't need an added expense for something I already have, that does the same thing.

Food for Thought




GOD CREATED CHILDREN (AND IN THE PROCESS GRANDCHILDREN)





To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students... here is something to make you chuckle.





Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children.





After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.


And the first thing he said was ' DON'T !'












'Don 't what ? ' Adam replied.





'Don't eat the forbidden fruit.' God said.


'Forbidden fruit ?


We have forbidden fruit ?


Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit ! '












' No Way ! '


'Yes way ! '





'Do NOT eat the fruit ! ' said God.








'Why ? '


'Because I am your Father and I said so ! ' God replied,


wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants





A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked !


'Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit ? ' God asked.





'Uh huh,' Adam replied.


'Then why did you ? ' said the Father.


'I don't know,' said Eve.


'She started it! ' Adam said.


'Did not ! '


'Did too ! '


'DID NOT ! '





Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve


should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.





If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself.





If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?


THINGS TO THINK ABOUT !





1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.





2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.





3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.





4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.





5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own .





6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.





ADVICE FOR THE DAY:


Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home one day


AND FINALLY:





IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TENSION AND YOU GET A HEADACHE,


DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE:


'TAKE TWO ASPIRIN'


AND 'KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN'!

Walsh to seek re-election in 8th Congressional District

Walsh to seek re-election in 8th Congressional District


"Fool me once..."


Voters, you really want to waste your time, energy, and vote for one of the sorriest deadbeats ever to hold office? Ask yourself this. How many jobs has he created or saved? Why did he vote to destroy Social Security as we know it? Why is he against you having health care, while he receives it, compliments of you? You voters elected him on false promises.

He hasn't came up with any legislation to create, or save jobs. He voted to privatize Social Security and leave you at the mercy of Wall Street and Insurance companies. He voted against the Health Care law, yet happily took tax-payer supported health care for himself, and not his children. He held this "Town-Hall" away from you! How's that for representation? And yet, there are some people out there, seriously considering returning a deadbeat of this ilk back for another term. Why?

I truly don't know about you, but when someone lies in my face, I know what to expect next, and plan accordingly. You voters can forgive him, but you better not trust people of this nature ever again. If you decide to send him back, expect more of the same hypocrisy. Should the words "Jobs" slither through those lips, expect more false promises.

Driver who was high on pot and Freon in '09 fatal crash gets 7 years


Now you know something is wrong with our criminal justice system.

This knucklehead gets slapped seven years for killing a human being while high on "Freon"! Forget about the pot this boob also smoked. But "Freon"! Really? Really? Really? Yet the system bangs fourteen years on a former governor for being a big-mouthed meat-head, that didn't even get a penny for his crime.

Yep, something is definitely wrong with our criminal justice system.

Facing bankruptcy, Postal Service pushes forward with big cuts to first-class mail next spring

Facing bankruptcy, Postal Service pushes forward with big cuts to first-class mail next spring


Reading this article just exposes the total hypocrisy of republican lawmakers. Never in the history of business has a company/corporation ever had such extortionist policies placed upon them. When you here the GOP scream about how regulations "Kill Jobs", just look at this over-reaching regulatory burden they have place upon the postal service. This heinous act will never be done to a private company, and never tolerated by private companies. This was only done because of their hatred of the middle-class. This law in my view is the utmost UN-American thing a legislator could do.

If they will never consider doing this to a private company because it will "Kill Jobs", why are they killing these jobs? One reason only. They hate the middle-class, and wish to return this country's population into indentured servants. Just reading this mind-numbing law is enough to simply have ones own head cave right in.

Don't believe it? Here ya go. If that one doesn't work, just copy the other below.

Indianapolis courting Chicago's CME Group

The real question is, what will the State of Illinois do with those pesky tax breaks they offered?

Message to Emanuel: Black aldermen not happy with remap

Message to Emanuel: Black aldermen not happy with remap


Just my two cents.

You know, when you really look at "Gerrymandering", it has an eerie feel of segregation. If my neighborhood has a diverse population regardless of what ethnic group has a majority, I would expect the elected representative, to do just what they were elected for; represent all of us.

Oh well, that's just my two cents. Can't wait for how will work out.

Caterpillar: Tax vote sign of Illinois' 'rudderless, dysfunctional business climate'

Caterpillar: Tax vote sign of Illinois' 'rudderless, dysfunctional business climate'


More corporate welfare threats.

Here's a fact. Zenith Electronics did the same thing when LG bought them, and still left the state after it begged for more welfare. The state gave in, Zenith/LG took the money and tax cut, and still left. Many jobs were lost, many small business owners suffered, while these people laughed all the way too the bank. Once they got the sucker deal, they spent nearly 300 million dollars sprucing up the place, putting in automated machines to cut the workforce, claiming the "Robots" will triple manual labor. Well that didn't happen. They would have been better served just using that 300 million for slight, I say again, slight pay raises. The machines never matched worker production, so they cried "We can't make any money like this", and split.

Caterpillar is correct. Our politicians are indeed, "Dysfunctional". They keep falling for the same old ruse every time. Hell, even George Bush said "Fool me once, ugh, ugh..."

Look, if you don't give them all these cuts, and breaks, at the very least use that "New Found Revenue" for hiring more police, teachers, firefighters, EMT's, transportation, and construction workers. You might as well convert those soon to be abandoned buildings into new schools, police, fire, or transportation terminals. That would serve the state much better as opposed to threats if you don't hand out more unnecessary corporate welfare.
