Another Classic Overreach

We understand the quote attributed to Machiavelli "Make no small plans for they have no power to stir the soul." But this proposal to add 500 miles of bike lanes to the City is just stupid. Where the hell are they expecting to get the space for this?
  • Street parking is already at a premium everywhere we look.
  • Parkways and sidewalks take up a lot of space already - is Daley going to remove trees and grass?
  • We still think that the bike lane on Roosevelt Road is ridiculous. The elimination of an entire traffic lane on Elston ruined what used to be a good shortcut to get north. What next? Eliminate a whole lane on the boulevards?
  • The City can't maintain a street for more than a year without potholes appearing everywhere. Now they want "raised bike lanes"? Pardon our laughter.
In short, this seems nothing but a political move to keep concrete manufacturers and road builders in business while inconveniencing everyone else. In other words, business as usual.

If a bicyclist hits a pothole on a ordinary street, the city's liability is ordinary. Put that same accident on a "Bicycle Lane" and the liability is greater. The taxpayers and motorists lose again.

I wonder what the hired truck angle is in this.

Go to south Vincennes as see how the BIKE ONLY lane is the lane the shitheads use to pass on the left at 60 mph... if somebody would actually use that lane, they would be slaughtered. And if they aren't slaughtered by a speeding vehicle, they will be robbed and killed if whitey decided to use it.

WHAT A FUCKING JOKE!

I really think Daley is legit. It is ashame some of his friends he gave a position of power has taken advantage of the Mayor and abused thier powers. I really doubt Mayor Daley knew of any of the non-sense that was going on. I say keep him as Mayor, support him and let the bad appointments be weeded out.

Think Mayor Daley is riverting back to his days as a Boy Scout. Think he was around 12, 13 years old. Was quite the party animal even back then, hanging with the 37th & Wallace crowd.

Perhaps he's trying to earn his bicycle patch now!!

More clues to SCC's true identity:

* He reads Machiavelli
* He doesn't like bicycles.
* He thinks the mayor is doing a terrible job and should be removed from office.
* He shudders at the suggestion that "trees and grass" should be removed to make room for the new bicycle lanes.
* He has used Elston Ave as a route.
* He uses a computer.
* He watches channels 2, 5 AND 7....

Hmmm....we are getting close....very close.
Now if he would just share who his favorite Soccer Club is then, we could pindown this elusive blogger.

Man U., perhaps?

Stay tuned!

The Chicago Sun Times is reporting good news.

JOHN STROGER is scheduled to be released from the hospital.


The bad news is that the reason he is leaving is to go to the MORGUE!


I guess every time Stroger asks his family members where all the stolen cash is that was hidden in his house, the family ships him back to the hospital.

The hospital won't even accept his organs for donation, hospital spokesperson related that his organs are so tainted with corruption that they only suitable matches for his organs is a guy on death row.

Homeland Security accepts fake ID

By Stephen Dinan
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
June 12, 2006


The Department of Homeland Security allowed a man to enter its headquarters last week using a fake Matricula Consular card as identification, despite federal rules that say the Mexican-issued card is not valid ID at government buildings.
Bruce DeCell, a retired New York City police officer, used his phony card -- which lists his place of birth as "Tijuana, B.C." and his address as "123 Fraud Blvd." on an incorrectly spelled "Staton Island, N.Y." -- to enter the building Wednesday for a meeting with DHS officials.
Mr. DeCell said he has had the card for four years and has used it again and again to board airliners and enter government buildings, without being turned down once. But he said he was surprised that DHS, the agency in charge of determining secure IDs, accepted it.
"Obviously, it's not working," Mr. DeCell said.
The Mexican government has issued millions of Matricula Consular cards in the past few years, mostly to give illegal aliens a form of identification that banks and other institutions will accept.

Remodler's Supply or something like that...they're at Pulaski and Wrightwood in 025. Good product, good service. 5 Polish guys showed up and replaced every window in my home, including a huge bay window, in about 5 hours, and left no trace. I am very pleased.

Plus, make sure to mention you are the po-po to the sales person and they give you a VERY substantial discount!

I can tell you who not to go to - American Thermal Window on Milwaukee. I had these clowns show up for an estimate, "Iver" told me about four things wrong with the house before he even got in the door. He then proceeded to tell me how great his windows are and the "magic powers" they possessed. He was peddling the same windows that my previous three estimators were selling, right down to the identical demo box. He then gave me some BS about how they custom frame their windows, Blah, Blah, Blah. His estimate came in at about $2000 more than anyone else. After he found out I was the police he gave me some police brotherhood line and said he would give me a special discount, hardly worth mentioning. Six weeks later after I had the windows done by another contractor, he called and asked when he could start my job. I informed him that my new windows were already put in. He then began to berate me for not calling him back after he gave me his estimate, like I owed him something. He then proceeded to tell me that I should have called him after receiving my other estimates and he would have met or beat the other prices I got! He should have just given me a fair estimate to begin with instead of attempting to gouge me. Needless to say with the treatment I received and some of the other horror stories I heard from other coppers, I'm glad I did not go with these tools.

Try Advance Windows. They had a very reasonable price and their crew was clean and efficient. They replaced 14 windows in one day. A week later one of the windows was working correctly and they came out that afternoon and replaced it - on a Saturday.
