How NOT to Win an Election

  • In a new political bombshell, leading African-American legislators and others said Monday they may support an independent third-party candidate against Rod Blagojevich this fall.
Wow. Black legislators refusing to support a democratic candidate. Could this be the begining of a falling apart of the Machine and the lockstep voting of a significant minority block?
  • But State Sen. Meeks and others were infuriated last week when Rod Blagojevich told reporters in Springfield that, if re-elected, he would refuse to raise either the sales tax or the income tax.
    “If the governor does not take back his pledge, and if the governor is not willing to work with the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus, it's a third candidate that I'm hoping will step forward,” Meeks said.
Did you catch that? Meeks and the Black Caucus WANT TO RAISE sales taxes and/or income taxes! Holy Shades of Walter Mondale Batman! Of course, it's all for the children, but we've been pouring money into the money pit known as "public education" for years and there has been little or no improvement - at least not in direct proportion to the amount of money given. Maybe instead of raising taxes, we ought to look into alternative means of fixing schools - like a voucher system. Regardless, Republican chances look a little bit brighter with Meeks and company promising to back a third party candidate and promising ot raise taxes. It's almost "Rovian."

The way we fund public schools is fucked up. Richer districts have more money to pour into their schools....poorer districts have less.

It's obvious with that kind of disparity you would have differances in education.

We need: Property taxes collected state wide and divided up by school districts in an equal fashion.

Consolidate school districts. No need to have that much administration bloating an already overburdened system, taking money and resources away for duplicate paper shuffling.

Bring back corporal punishment. It never hurt anyone to get two swats on their ass when they screw up. When your ass is stinging for an hour or so, makes you think about getting it again.

Bring back dress codes. When you look like a thug, dress like a thug, you act like a thug.

Mandatory public service: If you don't finish school, then get your ass on the side of the road with a stick and a bag and pick up trash.

Any other ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.....unless you're going to tell me to get fucked. I already know I'm fucked.

Okay elifemirc what's my crime here?

Is it because I don't like the death penalty, gun grabbing from citizens or when the City of Chicago is unfair to cops

I don't expect everyone to agree with me but then stand up and debate those issues with me.

Most coppers I've ever known hate Chicago's gun control laws except when applied to those people society needs protection from.

Most cops love seeing some rapist or mugger shot by a victim or witness.

Give me you best shot pal...

It's just a political tactic for both. Its election time, and Meek's want's to look like a fighter. He'll draw a list of wants for his people (The list will be big, but probably only have a few real "wants" on it)and Meek's will get a few of those on the list, and in turn Rod will get those votes. Rod get's what he want's, and Meek's get's what he wants. AND EVERYBODY'S HAPPY...FAGEDDAHBOUT IT, EVERYTHING IZ BEEUTEEFUL.

There did that hurt?
Cut out the racial shit here. We're cop's, if any of us have worked half a day on this job you know it's an economic issue. The poor are bunch of miserable, lost, fuck up's who are born into their situation.
If your black and you grow up poor, chances are your going to raise children who will remain poor.
If your white and you grow up poor, chances are your children will remain poor too.
Remember my brother in blue, the next time you see that white,poor kid diving a fish bowl down Van Buren buying dope from a poor black kid, he's going back to that trailer park to lose himself with all those white kid's.

Because of this Govenor's view(S) on police proceedure, it would also be wise that each and every one of you let your family member's know why they should find an alternative for govenor. Do the math, and he's gone!!!

My wife is a public school teacher, in Chicago. The absolute fucking HORRIFIC stories I hear from her is amazing! We have a whole section of the city that don’t want to learn, and if you try to correct them, or do something about it; 'momma ands baby’s daddy' hit the fan, want to sue you, the school and CPS. (What a fucking surprise!) However, cash from our taxes is kept on being thrown into the abyss! 10 to 15% of the students in some of these schools actually want to learn! (Because 10 to 15% of the parents are actually decent people!) Welfare is the same thing, few of them actually want to work, and do better for themselves, but the majority would rather sit on their collective asses and get free money. AND WE ARE FOOTING THE BILL! School is just a baby-sitting service the City provides, God forbid the kid actually learns something! Voucher system, fuck no! RE-DO the whole system! "Ok JR., you don’t want to learn, go pick up trash, clean bathrooms, do something outside of sitting here and disrupting kids who actually want to learn!" The one I love is: "Oh, I collects a check, I gots azhalma!" then get a job at a desk, cause I'm sick of paying your ass! (And while we are at it, since I pay YOU, cut my fucking grass, and pick up the dog shit in the back yard you oxygen thieves!) The whole system needs to be re-done! But who is going to have the balls to stand on the podium and say, "when I'm elected, this shit is going to change! (and mean it!)" and actually think (s)he is going to win an election? You think Duncan is going to do anything? Fuck no! He’s just another "lackey" for Daley. Until we find that person, and WE become the MAJORITY, we just have to keep on bending over and taking it in the ass! Until then, keep on checking the money box on our yellow slips, work a side job and special, save that cash, buy a used car instead of a new car, cut the vacation short, so I can send my kid to a decent school, so they have a decent education, and have a decent chance later on in life in the job market! Then again, there is always the NBA, NFL, MLB, or even the NHL for that matter? I just hope that my children do better than me when they decide to "grow up"! The way things are going, they should catch up to me soon, cause I refuse to grow up!

Unfortunately, nobody on this dept, is willing to step up and say anything about how things are run. Either we have gotten burned, or we know someone who has. This involves the police dept. and govt. too. Unless we all stick together, (which from the looks of this blogsite, is NEVER going to happen), unless we put forth a concerted effort, we will never see any changes. Come on, coppers, we definitely have a bargaining power, we are just afraid to use it! Everybody is nervous about "sticking it to the man", and we really need to, whether it be Federal, State, or City powers-that-be! If we stick together there is safety in numbers. Let's vote together, and vote the right men(people) into office. I know this may sound,well...... idealistic, but let's at least try it! Just one time....and SEE IF IT WORKS! Then MAYBE we could stop complaining for once!

Out of all the recent politicians and City high ranking employees that were indicted recently... Did the FEDS ever execute one search warrant on their residences or off shore bank accounts to recover U.S.C.? The answer is no. All these indictments and plea bargins are a joke. Many have stole millions yet get 12-18 MONTHS in the joint. Its all a big smoke and mirrors. Let them scam millions, let them serve only a small term. They NOT ban them from future government employment or contracts.

If anyone ever took the time to figure out how much taxes they really pay... not only through taxes but service fees, extra medical cost to pay for the aliens who dont pay, schools we cant send our kids too, auto insurance rates because of all the ones that dont carry insurance... Its a joke... smoke some rocks and cant work... no problem... free medical with no deductables, weekly checks, food stamps, free child care, free clothing vouches... Its a shame! Bad Conduct is rewarded, the hard working ASSHOLE is banged at every angle! The revolution is coming soon! The 2nd American Civil War is brewing! Aliens, criminals and lazy ass people living off YOUR money! Not the government money, because the they only collect it from US!

Work this shit ass job for 25 years and deal with every type of scum on the planet, maybe even end up dead by some asshole... but no free health care for you when you retire... but the illegal alien gets FREE MEDICAL!

While I did not participate in "the pre-dawn raid" of December 4, 1969 at 2337 W. Monroe St., my memories are vivid of this era and the murderous Black Panther Party.

I now see that a one-time protegee of former Black Panther Bobby Rush, Madeline Haithcock of the 2nd Ward, wants to rename this block as "Chairman Fred Hampton Way".

While I had a personal encounter of the 10-1 kind with a mob led by Rush and his Black Panther Party, I wish to resurrect the events of the early morning hours of November 13, 1969 at 5800 S. Calumet Ave. How easily some forget.

I'll bet that Haithcock and Rush will recall the name of another Black Panther, Spurgeon "Jake" Winters.

Yet Haithcock and Rush will be clueless as to the names of the late John Gilhooly (002) and Frank Rappaport (003), two of our fallen comrades that were shotgunned to death by Winters that fateful morning. In turn, Winters was killed by responding units.

I'm not even including Fillmore colleagues who were shot by the Panthers and survived through the grace of God.

While there is no street named "Gilhooly" or "Rappaport" in this City, Haithcock wants to rename a block of Monroe St. after "Chairman Fred", who died in his crib after the first gunshot emanated from within.

The murders of Officers Gilhooly and Rappaport were merely one incident of "offing the pigs" by the BPP nationwide.

In NYC, ask old-timers about the assassinations of Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones up in Harlem Houses and Rocco Laurie and Gregory Foster in the East Village. Jones and Foster were exemplary black officers. All were BLUE!

What's next? How about U.S. postage stamps to memorialize these rotten, muthafucking cop-killers?

Do any of you recall driving by their fortified bunker at 2350 W. Madison St., always on the alert for sniper fire.

May Fred Hampton, Mark Clark and the Black Panther Party burn in Hell.

While I'm not a mean-spirited person, perhaps Rush and Haithcock will join them...real soon!

God bless Gilhooly, Rappaport, Jones, Piagentini, Foster, Laurie and so many other of our fallen brethren throughout the nation..

White 38.8% Black 37.2 Hispanic 17.8 Asian 2.8 Other 3.4

2000 US Census

Black or African American persons, percent, 2000 (a) 12.3%
Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin, percent, 2000 (b) 12.5%

Way more whites on welfare than blacks?
I don't think so foo. Whites represent 75% of the US population, but only 38% of those on welfare. While the almighty nubian takes up 12% of the population and 37% of the welfare rolls.

We need to have a "pissing contest" with him. I mean this in the literal sense.

What would prevent some of us from visiting the gravesites of of his BP bretheren and, well you know, relieving ourselves on their graves? We could even invite Mr. Rush himself to witness this.

Any takers?

"I will be the first to say about Mayor Daley, that in a debate I would have to say that my garbage does get picked up, my lights do get turned on, the streets do get swept. You do dial 911 and somebody shows up most of the time."

"Most of the time???"

Way to go, Louie! Nice way to slam 13,000 cops, 8,000 firemen and the hundreds of people who work at OEMC!!

What a dumb-ass. Pfffft, you'd think a former gang-banger like Louie would be GLAD the Po-Po doesn't show! Wasn't he some kind of bomb-tosser for the FALN at one time? Didn't the Red Squad have a file on him? What a putz.
