A weekend of Quick Hits

We will be posting sporadically this weekend depending on when the mood strikes us. This has been a SPECTACULAR week for visitors; we topped 500 Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and 600 the past three days. Thanks everyone. Keep checking out the "7 Unseen Wonders" thread! On with the Quick Hits:
  • Daley scorns a cabbie dress code. "Are we going to start telling people what to wear to work?" "Do you want the government to be there in your home constantly?" Well, we dunno mayor - you tell US we have to live in your city. You tell US we have to abide by 33 year old rules on and off duty. You require US to divulge conflicts of interest in city business while you lead the most corrupt political system in recent memory. You even make it harder for US to earn a living by cutting OT and killing side job opportunities. Hmm.
  • This story involves OEMC's ability to answer 911 calls within 10 seconds, but you can expect some fallout to head our way, especially with the ACK, ENR and ONS buttons on PDT's not being used all the time. Big Brother is watching. Big lawyers looking for big payoffs, too
  • Blago is looking at his own serious corruption scandal. Do we detect the hand of "the Machine" involved? A little story - we were told almost 2 years ago by people who are "in the know" that Blago is a one-term governor and he was just keeping the seat warm for Lisa Madigan. Seeing the Trib's little magazine profile on Lisa last Sunday and the timing of these accusations, we wonder. One-term is looking prophetic.
  • National notes - remember predictions of 10,000 dead? Not even 1,000 as of today. All those cases of cholera and typhoid in the toxic brew of New Orleans? ZERO. Media hysteria, and people are seeing it with their own eyes. Hell, they just announced Mardi Gras should be on schedule. How did we go from a Third World type cesspool to the largest successful relief operation in US history overnight? And today, Cindy Sheehan of the anti Bush fever swamps is DEMANDING Bush remove all troops from "occupied New Orleans and Iraq." What a f$%^ing loon! Wasn't the left bitching that there weren't enough Federal troops to keep order last week? Watch Karl Rove bounce this into an even bigger congressional majority for the Republicans.

S.C.C. - Thank you for actually posting the Michael Moore link to Cindy Sheehan's "rant" about NOLA (& Iraq) even though you strongly disagree with, or even hate both their guts. I commend your fairness in doing so.

Oh, you those individuals that take the sub-miminum wage jobs that white folks don't want.

When I watched the recent remake of "The Alamo," I rooted for the Mexican army.

Typical liberal condescending attitude. You probably hold yourself up as a shining example for smiling at your busboy. What does minimum wage have to do with acting the fool? The Mexican gang bangers I've met in 009 & 010 weren't busing tables or cutting grass. Those brazers are the very ones being terrorized by the thugs. i can't believe that someone who works in these neighborhoods is that out of touch with the criminal element. Why don't you go post on Moore's and Sheean's blog sites.

Okay, I'll admit it. I was kidding about the "Alamo." Just wanted to get a rise out of BB.

On the other hand, I truly cheered for the Zulu warriors in the film of the same name. True carpet baggers those British. Hard to imagine, but the history of British imperialism actually towers over that of Uncle Sam.

By the way, only 15 Brits were killed in the Battle of Rorke's Drift, as it was known. America learned well from them on how to treat persons of color.

Things I have learned from watching the news on TV during the last eight days:

The hurricane only hit black families' property.

New Orleans was devastated and no other city was affected by the hurricane .

Mississippi is reported to have a tree blown down.

New Orleans has no white people.

The hurricane blew a limb off a tree in the yard of an Alabama resident.

When you are hungry after a hurricane, steal a big screen TV.

The hurricane did 23 billion dollars in improvements to New Orleans. Now the city is welfare, looters and gang free and they are in your city .

White folks don't make good news stories.

Don't give thanks to the thousands that came to help rescue you, instead bitch because the government hasn't given you a debit card yet.

Only black family members got separated in the hurricane rescue efforts .

Ignore warnings to evacuate and the white folks will come get you and give you money for being stupid.

Blago needed the money, maintaining that hair helmet can't be cheap.

Has anyone have an update about our SOS guys down in New Orleans? I last heard nine were sick and one hospitalized?

Nine are sick because they ran out of hair gel and new piercings to wear and the other is in the hospital with a swollen head thinking that he is actually on a respectful/believe-able SWAT team.

I would like to apologize to the fans of Chicago for being tardy. I'll be sure to be on time for my plane ride back to the Dominican Republic after the last game of the regular season.

Daley, Blago, and Ryan. The three stooges. Ryan going down, Daley, sinking, and Blago barely treading water.
