L.A. teacher charged with lewd acts on 23 children (Content may be disturbing for some readers)

L.A. teacher charged with lewd acts on 23 children (Content may be disturbing for some readers)

This is so foul on so many levels, but the saddest part, nobody noticed anything for 30 years!

30 years of parents not listening to their children. 30 years of faculty walking by the classroom and not noticing anything unusual. Children in a classroom bound, and blind-folded, and not once did anyone ask why he did that for 30 years.

There is no earthly excuse for letting this happen for so long. What this sick, twisted monster did is bad enough, but what the parents, and faculty did not do, by simply listening to what these children said, is beyond pathetic. Asking your child how was school today? And finding out they sat in a classroom bound, and blind-folded, being fed something. If that isn't the biggest alarm bell in the entire universe? Well, you should be deeply, deeply ashamed.

23 is just the tip of the iceberg. This fiend was there for 3 decades. God only knows how many more he's done this foul, and horrendous act upon.

Many City Council salaries rise in tough economy

Many City Council salaries rise in tough economy


Now you know why we have budget problems.


You cannot sit on your ass, and tell people they have to cut back, or lose benefits when you will not lift a finger to show some kind of leadership, and do it first.

Cicero mayor’s nephew stole beer using Cicero car: cops - Chicago Sun-Times

Cicero mayor’s nephew stole beer using Cicero car: cops - Chicago Sun-Times


This is a great lesson for all politicians. Never hire ass-clown family members for public positions.

When you really think about such positions being given out, one could equate it to a big middle finger at the constituents. I'm very sure somewhere, someplace in the town of Cicero, there is a person with much higher standards, and values fully qualified for this job. Yet, this ass-clown gets the nod.

Cops: Man kicked his kitten like a football

Cops: Man kicked his kitten like a football



This is the end result when you cut and gut Mental Health funding.

For this unstable individual to even say "We play like this all the time", someone should have picked up a phone years ago, and had this person under evaluation.

What else can one say? No need to go on rants, name calling, or even pointing out there are more like this individual across the country. Our politicians need to think twice before slashing Mental Health funding. It's only going to get worse.

New crackdown by cops targets neighborhoods on West, South sides

New crackdown by cops targets neighborhoods on West, South sides



Well you knew it was coming, and buddy, this will not look pretty for those knuckleheads running around on the streets.

Yet in the end, this is what happens when you take employment opportunities away from cities and towns. No job? Turn too crime. Yes they do have a choice. But when you put road-block, after road-block in the way of already economically depressed neighborhoods, primordial survival instinct takes over.

Case in point. When "Affordable Housing" became the status norm, Father's were banished from the home because of "Income Restrictions". Hence, the explosion of "Single Parent homes", and undisciplined children. One would think, this income restricting, was nothing more than an attempt at breaking up families, and guess what, it worked. When this "Policy" was implemented, incarceration rates began to soar. Any analyst can go back and look at the numbers. They are there, and factually correct. The problem is, there is no "National Discussion" about this subject.

When speaking of certain "Road-Blocks", if any young people happen to come across this, there was a time, decades ago, when all one needed was a "High School Diploma" just to become a police officer in the city of Chicago. Not anymore. Why? Just to keep certain ethnic groups out. Back then, with a high school diploma, once you passed the written, and physical test, off you went too the academy for "Training". Even with a degree these days, you still go too the academy. So what's the point of an education restriction?

Back to affordable housing. Doesn't it make sense if the rent rates were based on what the top bread-winner earned, and didn't break up families? Take two families for instance. They are both in the same housing complex, where one family makes less than the other. They both have the same amenities, but the family that does make more can afford to pay extra in rent, with no loss in amenities. As the family that makes less, sees an income boost, the rent is adjusted accordingly. Makes sense right?

Sadly, we all know common sense to such an approach is unlikely. So for now, a simple crackdown is the only approach. So get your camera phones ready for the running of the knuckleheads, because we all knew this was coming.

Docs more likely to suspect abuse in poor kids

Docs more likely to suspect abuse in poor kids


I would suggest these findings can be traced to both an unconscious, and conscious underlying effect.

One must take into consideration when you break studies such as this down to race, disciplinary actions still happen in minority households more frequently than Whites. This is not saying minorities are intentionally inflicting such "abuse", yet a case can be made that some do, but minority parents use discipline for instilling respect, and right from wrong into their children up into their mid to late teens.

But enough of that opinion from myself. This study suggest there still is that, "In the back of ones mind" perception of people of color. This perception has been shaped throughout the history of mankind's indifference, and instituted prejudices towards others. This perception is one that will never go away, simply because of the fact of human's distrust of not only people of color, but for people of their own same race, no matter the ethnic origins.

So yeah, this does indeed suggest these findings are both, unconscious, and conscious.

Pipeline politics: Misguided Obama blocks Keystone pipeline

Pipeline politics: Misguided Obama blocks Keystone pipeline



Who wrote this lying bag of useless toilet paper?

I take it they didn't even bother asking the Governors ( Except Rick I'm A Corporate Stooge Perry)in who's state it would run in. Last time I checked they are against it also. And by the way, how many jobs this ozone-busting sludge will produce? Not even 5 thousand. How much money will the GOP make from their corporate owners for attempting to push this lung choking agenda through? Ask The Speaker of The House. Hell he even has stock in the company. Talk about "Insider Trading".

If being a "Conservative" equates flat-out lying, why would anyone take you seriously? You destroy any credibility you have with people when you push for something that will not only be bad for the air, water, and People, but even for your own selves. Dollars signs in your eyes blinds you to everything. It makes you write crap editorials such as the one above. If anyone is "Misguided", it's you. You need to remove the dollar signs from your eyes, and take a very long hard look in the mirror. And when your done, look at your kids, and grand-kids. Because it will be them that will suffer from your greed.

Chicago aldermen approve Emanuel's G-8, NATO protest crackdown

Chicago aldermen approve Emanuel's G-8, NATO protest crackdown



Only 4 voted against.

New Mayor, same old same old, with the exception of a major suppression of free speech, and assembly. Somewhere, someplace there is a Mayor pondering how they can get a mass exodus of people from Chicago to a city that just isn't into power grabs. A place where all pay their fair share in taxes, and enjoy no cuts in social services.

Ah but who am I kidding? That just sounds way to good. 4 is always better than none.

City Hall backs off again on fines for street protesters

City Hall backs off again on fines for street protesters



One thing politicians should never forget, people/voters don't like being bullied.

Whenever a government, no matter the level, makes a power-grab, people will not stand for such violations of The Constitution of The United States. So, forget "States Rights". The US Constitution "Trumps" it. Politicians have an assumption of voters possibly being, not so bright. Yet, each and every time they think you are asleep, they try for a suppression of rights, which always fails. Yet, to this day, these politicians appear to constantly forget the obvious fact, that voters are indeed, awake, and not only watching, but listening. Yet year after year, they try and slip in crap legislation, and always get caught. Just look no further than Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, and other states attempting such suppression acts.

Look politicians, do yourselves a favor. Learn from the mistakes of others, and stop with the bullying tactics. Voters know how quickly they can make you unemployed.

Filling empty homes

Filling empty homes



Sounds like a plan, but.

Yes folks there is always that infamous, but. Let's say a cluster of such homes is in a gang infested area? Who in their right mind would rent? Another major but, is the banks, Freddie, and Fanny are still "Liable" with insurance, maintenance, and property tax cost, unless a deal could be struck with the renter, which in-turn, raises rents to unaffordable levels, such cost must be assumed, or passed on. That appears to be the sticking point on why banks never considered such an approach. In reality, the cost is just to much for any entity too bear.

This is especially true with cities across the country, slashing services, and raising property taxes on its constituents.

Yep, sounds like a plan, but...

Cops: Man wearing underwear, socks charged with DUI after striking squad car

Cops: Man wearing underwear, socks charged with DUI after striking squad car



I'm impressed he could even remember his name, age, and address. But then again, after they printed him all that information came up.

One can only wonder, that must have been one messed up date for him to split with only socks and underwear. Or, he may have been the victim of a date rape? WTF!

City's G-8/NATO costs could hit $65M, say officials in first such appraisal

City's G-8/NATO costs could hit $65M, say officials in first such appraisal


Some things are just beyond comprehension.

Why does a city claiming budget problems find money to put upfront, just to host a select few that should pay? Yeah. Like you, this just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I get the fact hotels will get a little business, maybe even hookers because diplomatic immunity is a perk. But, just wrapping your head around the logic of having to foot a bill upfront for "Wealthy Countries", is a bit insane.

The ultimate kicker is the fact our own government will "Reimburse" the city for such a bill is also insane. All they will do is sit around, order food, find some hookers, and dope, and pronounce to the world, nothing of significance came about from this meeting except, a trade agreement that may fuck over more American workers.

Yep, some things are just beyond comprehension.

Aldermen suggest library workers give up raises to avoid cuts

Aldermen suggest library workers give up raises to avoid cuts


Wow! Talk about having a set.

Burke fleeces taxpayers with police officers to protect him from non-existent threats. The entire city council votes themselves pay raises whenever the wind blows. I take it they never heard of leading by example? Drop the police officers Burke. And for the rest of you, lead by example and cut your pay, and drop some of your perks.

Pretty ballsy of you Burke.

60 years for highest-ranking Latin King gang leader

60 years for highest-ranking Latin King gang leader


Who was quickly replaced by another.

The only way for this to stop, is the legalization of marijuana, and life sentences for these criminals. Yes folks, LIFE. They instill fear, chaos, and havoc on our streets with reckless abandon for life. And in all honesty, 60 years isn't going to mean a thing to him. How many stories have you heard of criminals running things from prison?

Odd, in China they execute them, and make the family pay for the bullets. Here, we slap them on the wrist, or make them sit in a corner for a time-out. So now off he goes to enjoy 3 meals a day, expensive exercise equipment, free heat, electricity, hot showers, and cable at the expense of us. What do the victims get?

Indecency on TV: Supreme Court reluctant to ease profanity rules

Indecency on TV: Supreme Court reluctant to ease profanity rules



What a joke.

I take it they never seen "Evil Stewie" slice a cartoon woman in half and jack her car. How can anyone be so clueless as to what's on television these days? Now don't get me wrong, I love Family Guy, American Dad, Simpsons, Cleveland Show, Robot Chicken, and other shows that air on different networks. These shows make old Bugs, Road Runner, and Tom and Jerry look tame compare with the content they hilariously show.

Oh well. Let the clueless prudes continue sleeping at the wheel. Indecency on TV! What a joke.

A #$%& good reason to curse

A #$%& good reason to curse


What else can be said about this article except, I agree.

The meaning of certain "Foul Language" utterances come in many forms. A perfect example is the phrase "Shit". Yet how many people do you know that will say, Oh fertilizer? Or darn cow-pie? Not many right? So what is the big deal when you do say the phrase shit? It is what it is, cow-pies, fertilizer, manure. So the next time you "Prudes" raise an eyebrow when a person says intercourse you, you giant pile of cow dung, don't get bent out of shape.

End transmission.

Arabs stop short of asking for U.N. help in Syria

Arabs stop short of asking for U.N. help in Syria


If one recalls, I've pondered this lack of a response in an earlier post.

So I'll ask again. What is so different about Syria? What do they have over the Arab, and African Leagues? These, and many other questions our media has never asked. Our media will only focus on if, I say again, if any military actions are considered, or undertaken.

This is indeed a peculiar situation over there. What does this particular regime have that is so different from the others that fell?

How to fix the mistake of the Chavez 11, aka Cook County commissioners who weakened jail-release law

How to fix the mistake of the Chavez 11, aka Cook County commissioners who weakened jail-release law



Wow! There is a big difference from doing what's right, and what's wrong. This was clearly wrong.

If you want to combat crime, you have to have cooperation with local, state, and federal agencies. It doesn't matter what ethnic background a person may be, but violators of criminal laws must be held accountable, not set free because you don't want to "Offend" an ethnic group. This is certainly a major mistake and must be corrected.

I wonder about these politicians brain matter from time to time. It appears astounding they actually have a "Higher Education Degree". Colleges should consider adding "Common Sense" into their curriculum, because this brain fart of a law is clearly wrong.

Parade ordinance power grab

Parade ordinance power grab




As posted in an earlier awareness footnote, the attack on The Constitution of The United States continues despite party affiliation.

Some of you may refuse acknowledging the fact that many cities, and states are slowly shifting towards militaristic tactics. Step 1 in such a slow move is clamping down on your rights of speech, and assembly. The second phase is controlling the press via "Spin-Doctors" masquerading as "Journalist". Do remember the influx of so-called experts unleashed by the Pentagon on the cable news networks during the run-up for the "Illegal Invasion" of Iraq. Remember, no "Declaration of War" was passed. Hence, unconstitutional no matter how you slice it. With that being said, look, and read this change in law again. Our rights are being eroded:


Office of the Chicago City Clerk O2011-9743 Office of the City Clerk City Council Document Tracking Sheet Meeting Date: Sponsor(s): Type: Title: Committee(s) Assignment: 12/14/2011 Emanuel, Rahm (Mayor) Ordinance Amendment of various provisions of Municipal Code for associated authorization regarding the upcoming NATO and G-8 summits Committee on Budget and Government Operations 5v6G^, OFFICE OF THE MAYOR CITY OF CHICAGO RAHM EMANUEL MAYOR December 14,2011 TO THE HONORABLE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO Ladies and Gentlemen: At the request of the Superintendent of Police, I transmit herewith an ordinance amending various provisions of the Municipal Code and providing associated authorization regarding the upcoming NATO and G-8 summits.

Parking meter rates rising with the new year

Parking meter rates rising with the new year



Short and sweet.

And this comes as no surprise whatsoever. That was the reason for practically giving away this revenue generating city service. This did nothing but pad the pocket of the seller, and buyer. When you privatize a city, state, or federal service, it is always the consumer, and economic health of these entities that suffer with lost revenue, service, and employment cutbacks.

3 dead, 16 wounded so far in weekend violence - Chicago Sun-Times

3 dead, 16 wounded so far in weekend violence - Chicago Sun-Times



The meat-heads are starting off the New Year in the most dumbest form imaginable.

Here's a thought. We all know that the City of Chicago installed those cameras around town. What came with those cameras, is what is aptly named a "Gun Shot Detector". So, in a nutshell, once a weapon is fired in the parameters of said cameras, it will detect, and narrow down where that shot originated. Hence, making the apprehension of the meat-head that fired the round/rounds possible. They shoot, they run, and for the life of them, can't figure out how they got caught.

So with that said, as we know last night, there were meat-heads out celebrating the New Year by firing weapons in the air. I wonder how many actually got locked up last night? Yep, "Stupid is, as Stupid does".
