Too Legit to Quit

In a continuing effort to prove that it can be trusted to hire and fire people based solely on their ability, the city moved on Friday to vacate the Shakman decree.
  • The move to overturn the 1983 Shakman decree comes despite Daley's assertions that he wants to keep city hiring free of politics.
  • ...Daley's top lawyer, Mara Georges, previously said the administration would persist in challenging the Shakman decree because it needs more freedom to streamline the hiring process.
If these aren't the most bald faced assertions of a premise completely devoid of historical perspective and reality (in other words, lies) we've ever seen, we don't know what is. Channel 2; Channel 7; Tribune coverage. If Patrick Fitzgerald is reading this - Faster Please. Squeeze "Quarters" and Segal a little harder. Someone somewhere is going to pop soon. And to Michael Shakman - keep fighting the good fight.

King Richard II should be called King Dick. Wait, he is already.

He's not after money, it's power, plain and simple. Who needs money when you make a good salary as mayor, your wife makes a good salary doing whatever shit she does, you don't need to pay for or maintain a car, have bodyguards running errands for you and who knows what else.

He should retire, unless the Feds retire him first. But don't hold out hope for that, I'm sure he is doing a good job of keeping his skirts clean.

Here's a link for an html file - it's the actual court document.

If that lulls you to sleep, here's a really, really brief explanation: It's a consent decree that prohibits political hiring and firing for non-policy-making jobs with the City.

The 35-year-old decision, called the Shakman decree, was settled with consent decrees by the City in 1972 and 1983. It has become the basis for prohibiting hiring and firing on the basis for political affiliation for state and local governments throughout the United States.

The Diary of RightIsTheBest, formerly Leftisthebest.

December 26th, 2005

I knew we we're celebrating somebody's birthday yesterday. I didn't know everyone was celebrating Karl Rove's though.

Believe it or not, this upcoming New Year is changing my outlook on life. It's like an angel kicked me in the head. I understand the Conservative point of view! In fact, I am now a Republican. I don't know what happened. I guess I finally realized how absurd those leftists can be. (Sorry Shady) ( I mean the Shadow)

Everything just seems so CLEAR and LOGICAL to me now. Like there's a certain order in the world. How could I have been so misled? I feel like such an ass SCC. Will you forgive me?

I can't wait to vote in the next election. It's like a giant weight was taken off my shoulders. (Was it Michael Moore?)

I can't wait to tell Malcolm X's Liitle Brother that he can't spell and to FUCK OFF!!!

So may apologies to make to my new friends. It's like I'm in the 12 step program.

I hope to be the first person to start the drilling in Alaska. In fact, give me a rifle and let me start killing some of that damn wildlife.

Tookie is lucky i was a leftist while he was alive. Or I would've killed him myself!

God Bless our fearless President, George Bush, and all of his staff. May Sadaam go to Hell!! God Bless the Iraqi War and all of our troops.

Thank You George Bush for my tax break. Screw those liberals for my tax hike.

Abortion is Wrong!

Jesus Christ is the Son of God!

Go NRA!! Every good citizen should be packing heat.

WE can DO THIS, Simple Folks- just TRUST US... It's in your BEST INTERESTS, my CHILDREN!!! (Heh-Heh-Heh/Chorke-Guffaw-Hyuk-yuk-yuk!)

Dorky post 12:32 Mrs. "RightIsTheBest"... but the good news- you're not sharp enough to hyperlink a site to your drivel, making it even easier to click on your sophomoronic named post and watch it "thwipp" away, collasping upward and out of the way, allowing the real thinkers to communicate without encumbrance... I shall now crush all your puny posts down to minimal size effortlessly you puny brained girly man!

Y'all don't come back now, ya hear!!!

The U.S. attorney should throw Daley in Jail along with his brothers and probably another 200 folks (maybe more). They should then get ready to throw the next kingship in jail as well. Get ready cause silly as Jesse Jr did not fall very far from the apple tree as can be evidenced by his lack of criticism uniti the current shithead was being investigated (at a ridiculous level) by the Feds. There is so much wrong with the city that I don't know where to start. These sheep that support the current system cannot imagine living under different masters (the CPD included). Everyone is promised everything no matter how ridiculous it is and they believe it. They eat it up! It's amazing what power this political class has over the masses. Stalin would be impressed. They cannot think for themselves. I've always heard that what matters most in Chicago is Religion, Lawyers, and Race. Race has to be the number one weapon in the
Daley arsenal. I mean they play it so well. They play Whites against Blacks. Hispanics against everyone. Everyone eats it up. Lawyers: If you haven't been following the George Ryan trial and you have lived in Illinois for more than 6 years then you should not be allowed to vote. What Dan Webb is doing can only be described as slimy in my opinion. He is not giving his client the best defense, he is just trying to usurp justice by getting a mistrial declared and getting his client off. The lawyers in this town have their hand in everything and they seem to get away with it. There are so many of them it isn't even funny. As far as religion goes I've never quite understood this one. Religion in this town seems to drawn along the same lines as race (Catholics vs. Protestants- Whites vs. Blacks).

Check out "college grad old-timer" comments on "ExamScam II" thread.

I agree.

How dare this sleaze-infested City try to void the Shakman decree? They are shameless and without scruples--right in our faces!.

4:41 Yes. It is called the Englewood principle. Unwanted,unloved and unsupervised children grow up to be the bane of society. These criminals beget criminals who the working person has to support and be victimized by. All this is orchestrated by the liberal politicians, so that they can mantain some sort of power base. To try and make someone take responsibility for their actions or suggest birth control be a condition of welfare is decried as racist.

If cops want to carry off-duty, let them put a police sign on their house so we can go there for help.
