Happy St. Patrick's Day

The boys over at the NYPD Rant are celebrating in a big way and have an entire thread devoted to jokes of, about, and at the expense of the Irish. Our favorites so far:
  • Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey". Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I found one."
  • Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and says to the first man he meets, "Do you want to go to heaven?" The man said, "I do Father." The priest said, "Then stand over there against the wall." Then the priest asked the second man, "Do you want to got to heaven?" Certainly, Father," was the man's reply. "Then stand over there against the wall," said the priest. Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and said, "Do you want to go to heaven? O'Toole said, "No, I don't Father. The priest said, "I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?" O'Toole said, "Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now."

Okay, here's one for ya!

Did ya know Jesus was Irish?

He was a carpentar who lived at home until he was 36, and he was out drinking with the boys the night before he died.

Heard that one from a female Republican.

Although I have never agreed with lefty, I do Have to finish what he started.

1. Lived at home til he was thirty;
2. Preferred hanging out with twelve guys rather than one girl;
3. His mother thought he was god;
4. His dad got him a job in the trades;
5. He convinced his mom that the wine he got at the bar (at a family wedding) was actually water.

HELP!

Make no mistake. This is a desperate cry for help. A couple of police officers told me about this site. I am NOT a city employee.

I have invested a large sum of money into buying my home in the 2300 block of Monroe St.

Enter Ald. Madeline Haithcock and her "brainstorm" to rename our block "Chairman Fred Hampton Way". No one asked for input from those of us who now live on this block. If they had asked, her proposal would lose in a landslide.

A week ago, a neighbor was approached by two unsavory looking strangers that all but demanded that a "Stroger" election sign be posted on their property. They went away after the neighbor lied and said that they will vote for Mr. Stroger but no signs.

Several neighbors and I were also approached by two well-dressed African-American men about renaming our street after Hampton who one called a "martyr". We lied, telling them that that would be just fine.

I then phoned the police station on Racine to complain about intimidation. The officer insisted that I give my name and address. I said "forget it" and hung up.

Many of my neighbors and I fear for our safety if we protest the renaming of our street. We don't appreciate the possibility of a Molotov cocktail being tossed into our home, if not worse.

Who would want their street named after the leader of criminals who openly advocated murdering members of the police force?

All we want is to live in peace without jeopardizing our safety, We cannot trust the media or the politicians.

The officers told us that we should not have moved here in the first place. If they put up that sign, I will sell with the hope of just recouping my investment mistake.

We are at our wit's end. Why doesn't Haithcock put up the sign in her own block and leave us alone?

As long as we can remain anonymous for obvious reasons, can anyone give us advice?

I apologize for interrupting your St. Patrick's Day jokes. Please help us.

Watched a show today, about a book called "My Father's Gun". Its written by a third generation NYC cop (about being a NYC cop). Long story short...they interview his dad about being one of the first to "illegally" move out of the city. You see it was, at one time, a requirement to live in the city. It was a local and state law. They talk about it like it was part of an unfair system from when the department was in a prehistoric mindset, like it would be unheard of today. Just reminds me of what a backwards, behind the times, corrupt dictatorship this city is.

Get together with your neighbors, hire a good attorney downtown, I suggest Matt Piers, and see if you can get an injuction against the renaming of the street to honor Hampton. Since your investment will clearly be in the toilet and there is no one to sue personally to recoup, you can certainly argue that there is no other adequate remedy at law. In fact, it appears that you and your neighbors may be the only ones who can actually stop this nonsence because you are the only one who will suffer actual harm. The standard for bringing something like this into court.

I also live in the same block. A neighbor told me about this blog. That damn alderwoman is stirring up a real mess here.

We all live in fear because of her stupidity. My phone call to City Hall was useless. I don't even want to deal with that crazy Haithcock.

You'd think that with Tuesday's election coming up, we could have a precinct referendum on this insanity.

Is there any answer besides litigation? I already have a 12 guage shotgun and an unregistered handgun with my state ID card..

I paid much, much more for my home than $125k.

I respectfully ask for a sincere answer to our dilemma. We are ardent supporters of the police force. They should pay you much more.

Please help us. In this case, sarcasm does not help. I'll even admit that I was a fool to buy here. What to do?

I must go shortly. I will check in over the weekend.

Sincerely,

A Resident of the 2300 block of Monroe Street.

A drunken female cop needs to decide which male cop to screw tonight. She has a choice of an Irish cop, a Black cop and a Jewish cop.

She thinks... well I kow the jew is circumsized, I know the black cop is super sized and I heard the Irish guy can screw for over a hour... but the bad part is you won't feel him inside you!

The trick to get the anti-handgun law overturned in the courts is simple. Under the freedom of information act, order OECC tapes of the numerous calls in busy districts during RAP's and no cars available status as MEN WITH GUNS, ROBBERIES, VIOLENT CRIMES AGAINST PEOPLE calls go unassigned for up to 20-30 minutes.

Hey 2300 Monroe, this issue has been all over the news for the past 2 weeks. Do you guys live in a cave?

First things first, the police are not going to give out your name to anyone if you file a police report. Even if someone gets a copy, the pertinent info is blacked out. That's part of the problem: citizens want something done, but won't stand up and identify themselves when necessary. We can't do a thing if someone won't step up to the plate.

If you're that scared then maybe you should move. I considered buying in your area, but after driving through a few times at all hours of the day and night, I decided, "Hell No! I'm not an urban pioneer."

I suggest you and your neighbors band together and head on down to the next City Council meeting on March 29th (or is it 28th) and voice your displeasure in the street renaming idea.

I'm a Black female P.O. and think the whole idea of naming a street after a known racist and killer is a joke and disgrace.

Good luck.

To Monroe street residents: Try contacting Kass from the tribune or Brown from the Sun Times. If you can get the residents together they might be interested in the story and bring some heat. You could also try to attend the next council meeting hopefully surrounded by numerous protesting police officers. Since your alderwoman wont listen its time to change your alderwoman. She probably isnt smart enough to realize the neighborhood is changing around her and now soon enough she will have to pander to the yuppies. Oh by the way, welcome to Chicago.

I'm not sure, but I think Haithcock has a severely gerrymandered ward that also includes the largely-gentrified south loop/near south side. If true, anybody should be able to take her out now what with all the gentrification.

Anybody got an accurate map of her ward?

To 2300 Monroe St., Jesus H. Chris-, can't you stick up for what you believe in. You say some black men asked for your approval to put up a sign and you said ok. WTF? Tell them NO. Quit being intimidated by the man. LOOK them straight in the eyes and say NO, WE don't want that sign, if they keep bothering you call 911 and have a car sent over. DO SOMETHING! Quit hiding and waiting for someone else to bail yourself out. If you cannot stand up for yourself, move out of that neighborhood, you need to get streetwise brother. The police cannot solve your problems when you hide behind them.
Next month those two black men will come over and demand your house keys and take it away from you, and you better be ready!

We have ONE (1) computer for blue shirts in 024. and the 3.5 tact/gang offices with two secretaries have about 10. 40 people Vs. 350?. that we are now locked out of. rumor was it the new LT kicked out a detailed tact team.

We have one of those level 2 DOC areas and the tact/gang guys are never in it. Though the "visiting" districts and saturation units are allways there.

Check the TWO (2) City Cameras that are there and count the amount of times in the 4 hours of work you see a 024th district tact/gang car.

We see you come in at 6ish goto dinner hit the streets at 8ish and home by midnight. Then call for a car to do paper cause it will take time away from your pisser arrest.

Thats right im crying like a bitch.
I get there before them leave after. and i have too do more and get the same pay.
