Run Hillary Run!

It's things like this that give us hope that November won't be a complete disaster for the Right. From
  • On Thursday Sen. Clinton spoke ay the annual U.S. Chamber of Commerce convention, where she criticized young whippersnappers for not wanting to work hard and for expecting everything to be handed to them on a silver platter.

    Said Hill: "Kids, for whatever reason, think they're entitled to go right to the top with $50,000 or $75,000 jobs when they have not done anything to earn their way up"… A lot of kids don't know what work is. They think work is a four-letter word." She also complained that "[w]e've got to send a different message to our young people. America didn't happen by accident. A lot of people worked really hard. They've got to do their part, too."

    Mrs. Clinton did not bother mentioning how her daughter Chelsea managed to snag a choice, six-figure consulting gig with a high-priced firm immediately after graduating from Oxford in 2003.
The Chicago Way on a National level. Run Hillary. Please?

as far as residency....I agree, end it, its antiquated and wrong, let folks live whereever they want. As far as Hillary goes, she's just another arrogant politician, talking b.s. (like her kid wouldn't have been admitted to Oxford if she wasn't the child of a U.S. President). The connected are taken care of all of the time; its not right, but at least she should speak the truth (oh, wait a minute, a political figure speaking the truth?).....

Not even John-John got into Oxford. Chelsea may have gotten in because Daddy graduated from Oxford, but then you forgot that. Also she has kept that 6-figure job for about 3 years now. Also new lawyers at the top of their classes earn 6-figures their first year. So get your facts straight and leave the kid alone.

+ Hampton street sign - dead issue.
+ Penson fund - talk of a two tier system. Current employees not to be affected. Fund to be broke by 2028.
+ Retiree healthcare/Korshak - Judge decided FOP has no legal standing to enter the lawsuit. (FOP appealing)
+ I.O.D. - medical section personnel are lying when they say that your doctor is no longer on their list of possible referrals.
+ Davis vision - still fucked up.
+ voluntary case management program (asthma/diabeties) to begin.
+ gun day - 193 people showed up today, tomorrow is last day. Colt and Ruger were no-shows.
+ Wagon hatches are fucked - so shackel your transportees.
+ FLSA lawsuit - depositions are still taking place, but things appear to be going well for our side. Any evidence of time due being denied would be welcome.
+ Red light tickets from cameras - Police and fire are exempt, per ordinance.
+ Sgt Exam - everyone but the really, really stupid (or very far removed from police work) passed. Congrats to the clout babies on their up-comming promotions.
+ CR's - a new form is now in play for beefs resulting in a suspension of 15 or more days (form 44.251).
+ new business - a constitution ammendment was tendered re: Sgt's on the board.

No, I can't spell.
You're welcome.

Chelsea went to Oxford because her ACADEMIC scores from Stanford qualified her as a Rhodes Scholar.(like father,like daughter)That legacy crap only works at rich American institutions of learning like Yale.G.W. and daughter got in because G.H. is a alum. You have to EARN Oxford.However,I can't argue her six figure job.Being the daughter of an ex-president didn't hurt.But in her defense she's no airhead unlike Jenna and Barbara who also got their jobs because of daddy. but if you can't help your kids,what good is power?

How do you manage the $600.00 health services account?

Very few people knew about the $2,000 use it or loose it sign up in November Health Savings Account.

I wonder what care plans the politicians get.

Thank you for the outline and giving us your time. I appreciate it. I prefer reading what other's are saying as opposed to checking their spelling. :)

Not knocking the original spelling police, as that poster was trying to assist in our image on blogs. Not a bad thing. I take it with a grain of salt as other cyperspace blogs also have spelling police. :)

Robot Bartender

A man enters a bar and orders a drink. The bar has a robot bartender.

The robot serves him a perfectly prepared cocktail, and then asks him, "What's your IQ?"

The man replies "150" and the robot proceeds to make conversation about global warming factors, quantum physics and spirituality, biomimicry, environmental interconnectedness, string theory, nanotechnology, and sexual proclivities.

The customer is very impressed and thinks, "This is really cool."

He decides to test the robot. He walks out of the bar, turns around, and comes back in for another drink.

Again, the robot serves him the perfectly prepared drink and asks him, "What's your IQ?"
The man responds, "about a 100."

Immediately the robot starts talking, but this time, about football, NASCAR, baseball, supermodels, favorite fast foods, guns, and women's body parts. &nb sp; Really impressed, the man leaves the bar and decides to give the robot one more test.

He heads out and returns, the robot serves him and asks, "What's your IQ?"
The man replies, "Er, 50, I think."

And the robot says... real slowly,

"So... is... your... party... gonna... nominate... Hillary... for... president ???

A lot of coppers have to drive an hour to work anyway. If 95% of coppers would stay in the city, then what's the problem with lifting the residency. You must be one of those mamma's boys who lived with mommy and daddy until you were 35 and were able to live rent free saving up your cash for a nice house in a nice neighborhood. Some of us "fucking idiots" did not have that luxury.

Nice robot story, however, you may want to replace "string theory" with "M theory". String and shell theory, while still popular, are considered out-dated in most circles. Such usage makes the robot story appear antiquated.

Still, it makes it's point well.

From the talk on this site none of the police really care about this city at all, except a paycheck. So, if they got rid of the residency rule that would mean, of course, that the work ethics would improve, because no officers would live in the city and they would care alot more about the people who do. Correct?

Regarding residency...I did a little research and found that out of the 50 most populated cities in the country, less than 10 have residency requirements for their police personnel. These cities are demographically and economically diverse, especially in comparison to Chicago. We're talking about Milwaukee, Memphis, Philly, Boston, New Orleans, Sacramento (w/in 1 year of employment), & KC, MO.

Unfortunately, residency requirements have been deemed constitutional in several federal jurisdications. Obviously, this is the case for us, thanks to the IL Attorney General. Basically, the only positive is that the policy cannot be made more restrictive. Yet, this is happening naturally, as suitable neighborhoods in which to live are disappearing and are unattainable due to housing prices.

However, to quote from the United States Commission on Civil Rights-as paraphrased by Delattre (2002)-"There is no evidence that city residents make better police officers. In fact, resident officers have been slightly more likely to be suspended or dismissed from the police force for misconduct and are disproportionately the subject of civilian complaints" (p. 323).

It's time to hold the FOP more accountable for our standard of living. There's something wrong when my husband and I-both whom are PO's-cannot even afford to buy a home.

I have to agree with 12:16:58 PM. All of the comments from police officers are that they have no use for the city, the mayor, the aldermen, their union, the citizens, etc, etc. Yet we as citizens of this city are to believe that they would begin to care if they were allowed to live outside the city boundaries. And as for 5:55:13PM, I will admit there is something wrong when two people making the salaries of police officers who cannot afford to buy a home. There is something wrong.

6:47:59,Caring has nothing to do with it. People would like to raise their families in a community were the Schools are nice and your taxes pay for them and you get a lot more property for your money.My kids are in Universities now ,so it makes no differense to me now . Just thinking of new guys on the job startig at 42,500 a year . Where they gonna live?

You guys kill me. You act like 45 thou a year aint sheeet. Do you have idea how many people in this city live on far less. Curtain some of your spending, drive a used car, put the kids in public school, forget buying the latest electronic gadget or the new hardware. Do you really need to spend $100 or more per month on cable? Furthermore 45000 is entrance level - after 18mos, most new PO's are making close to 60,000 a year for doing little more than riding around in a car all day. The crying about money all day just kills me. You should all have to learn how people survive in the real world. The health insurance is practically free and is better than most industry policies yet you do nothing but slam FOP and the City. What you seem to want is a completely free ride while criticizing people who are so poor that they can't begin to aspire to the privileges and benefits which you enjoy.

Please get a life. . . or at least learn to appreciate the advantages that you and your families do have!!

Damn sarge, that is rough. You sound like you have a good attitude, and I hope you keep it always.

Having input from all districts, my gift to the blog tonight is a comparison of the morale and camaraderie between districts on the same radio...

001 over 018;

002 over 021;

004 a wash with 006;

005 over 022;

007 over 008;

009 over 012;

011 over 010

013 over 014 (hands down)

015 over 025 (hands down)

016 over 017 (hands down)

020 over 024 (hands down)

Which is really weird! The lower number districts on every radio except for z-10 seem to be preferable places to work in terms of morale and camarederie.

Am I on crack?
