Only in Chicago

  • More homes in Chicago soon could recycle with bins instead of blue bags, as Mayor Richard Daley's administration considers expanding a successful pilot program beyond the Beverly neighborhood.

    Daley has bristled at criticism of the troubled blue bag program. But the alternative approach now used in the 19th Ward could be offered in other sections of the city this year
A program (Blue Bags) that has been a failure of monumental proportions is on the verge of being replaced with an additional boondoggle that even the mayor admits is going to cost maybe TRIPLE. And to cover part of the cost, the mayor is proposing to sell the three major sorting centers (the subject of a media expose in that they didn't actually SORT something like 85% of the garbage).

What will the mayor sell next? And after he's finished selling everything he can to solve his short term problems, guess what happens to taxes? You think it's unaffordable to live here now?

The Mayor fancies himself as a leader; he is not smart enough to recognize his incompetence.

I used to use the blue bin. On a couple of occasions I saw garbage pickers getting the cans and glass I put aside and off they went.

On the one hand, they were looking for money and good for them. On the other hand, what about the recycling efforts towards the city?

Does it matter who picks the garbage, as long in the long run it's recycled?

The black man can't even dump his trash in a garbage can. How many of these inner city houses have their garbage piled un either inside or just out the back door.

I can see it now....

Ok, Used Crack pipes in the red bin, little zip lock plastic bags in the blue bins, little bottles of grain alcohol in the green bins and this big nasty juice covered dildo in the black bin.

Only in Chicago,
a new Blues Tune

We will get Blue Bins,
soon as the right campaign
contribution come in from the right man.

And, we keep using those old blue Bags,
just now we will have to put them in the Blue Bins.

They'll get picked up on Blue Mondays,
by the Blue Trucks,
on the Blue Line
under Daley's new Blue Laws.

I got those Mayor Daley should turn Blue Blues.

That's because the entire unit was at two different promotional parties last night. They had two cars up in the entire city. You should be so lucky as to have your entire unit show up for your promotion.

Just want to give a "atta boy" to the Cook County State's Atty Office for fvcking off a good case. Without you guys, vicitms wouldn't be nearly as under-served.

I have a thought, citizens should stop calling 911 when they get victimized. They should begin calling the SA's office first. An ASA can make a decision about what happened and then IF charges apply, the ASA could call 911.

That would keep this 'City that Works' running alot smoother.

Could we get a seperate thread for the promotion stuff.

Back on the blue bag dibacle.
The reason for the blue bags was that you could dump everything into the same truck and it would be sorted at the seperation plant.

If we go to blue bins I'd bet my first pension check that Daley will get a Hired Truck Scandal firm to do the picking up of the recycle trash. If the teamsters in Streets and San protest, he will sell off their trucks and all garbage pick-up will be hired trucks. And, of course, we will get a new tax bill.

Maybe we should mail our trash to Richie's home address.

Almost 50% of the Skyway money was used to payoff the Bond holders. Of the remaining money, Daley has spent almost one third of it last year to adjust the city budget and another one third will be spent this year for the same budget.

That leaves us with one/sixth of the original money to last the next 97/96 years. You do the math.

Within the next 24 to 36 months this city will be broke again.

You'll see waste management buy the garbage trucks and charge us direct. The water dept. will be sold and they will charge you direct. Need you street cleaned? Get ready to pay up.

Can the Police & Fire dept's be far away. They could be easily sold to some corporation.

Have you ever called 411 (info) and get charged 1.50 a call, dial 911 and pay 2.00 per call. Need a car to come by your house, oops, service charge of 65.00, reports are extra.

But we still have enough money to pay for 50 aldermen and their staffs.

Daley will go down in history as the Mayor who broke Chicago's back. Every thing will have a user fee attached.

Soon their will be fences around all the parks (the daley fences of course). Want your kid to go in, pay up chump. (Disney does it).

Want to go to the lakefront, oops, entrance fee to get in the sand and water.

Air and water show, fireworks show, have your wallet ready.

O.K. I'm drinking way too much coolaid. But if it's for sale, he's thinking about it, and you should to!

Cut the city down to just 25 wards. Each ward will be the same as a district. Other cities have far less aldercreatures. So why not here? CUT THE GLUT! TRIM OUT THE GOVERNMENT WASTE! P.S. Why are city crossing guards working at private schools? Have those priests out there with their nun helpers!

The crossing gurads work for the police dept you idiot. The reason they are there is to help kids get across the street with out getting squashed. It's a public safety issue, not church/state.

Do you have a problem with traffic aides or crossing guards downtown? Most of the pedestrians downtown work in the private sector.

Sorry that your kids have to go to school with the 1s, gangbanger 4s, and Polish Slim Shadys, but why do kids that go to private school deserve less from the government?

JUST IN. THE CITY CAN MESS WITH THIS SIGN B.S. BUT THEY CANNOT TAINT THE AMV ALL-STARS!

CONGRATS TO THE GILHOOLY FAMILY:
Patrolman Al O'Connor is the All-Star for week eight.


The Votes Are In!
A first responder is never off duty. And our week 8 All-Star proves that fact. Patrolman Al O'Connor, of the Chicago Police Department, was nominated for his heroics while off-duty last March. O'Connor was driving to work when he came upon a shootout between a railroad officer and a suspect. O'Connor was just in the nick of time -- the railroad officer had already been hit three times and was losing blood. Patrolman O'Connor managed to get a shot off and fatally wounded the suspect. Then O'Connor got the badly injured railroad officer the help he needed -- no doubt saving his life. It's clear this patrolman is one man's hero -- and the public agreed, making him our last finalist.

There are 8 incredible All-Stars -- but only one will be the 2006 All-Star. Which one will it be? It's up to you -- so get the word out and cast your vote for the 2006 AMW All-Star now!
