The Insanity of Aldercreatures

This is getting ridiculous now. It's the "nanny state" out of control:
  • Chicago restaurants already prohibited from selling foie gras would be forced to start cooking healthy - without oils containing trans fats linked to obesity, stroke and heart disease - under a crackdown proposed Wednesday by the City Council's most powerful alderman.

    Finance Committee Chairman Edward M. Burke (14th) followed through on a promise to make Chicago the first big city in the nation to prohibit restaurants from using oils containing artificial trans fats in food preparation.

Um, Eddie? Maybe the reason people LIKE eating foods like this is it tastes good? Trust us, if the food tastes like crap, no one is going to buy it. Chicago is a city based on great tasting food. You want tasteless, bland crap, move to L.A. or Seattle. Not here though. You want to drive convention business away even faster than normal, eliminate the great tasting food.

And guess what else? No one is forcing people to eat this stuff. They WANT to eat it. And if they care about their health, they'll do it in moderation and exercise regularly and take care of themselves. But to completely eliminate food that tastes fantastic just because someone somewhere down the line is going to have "the big one" isn't just stupid - it's completely asinine. Chicago has a long tradition of aldercreatures and mayors who couldn't fit into regular size clothes and died of dietary related ailments.

Stop thinking you know what's good for us Eddie. Don't you have some conflict of interest votes to change somewhere in the Council record somewhere?

good going guys. why don't you try to do some police work instead of hiding in the hole, playing on the computer and talking shit about your co-workers.

now, when you meet a copper from another unit/district, you will understand why there is a smirk on his/her face when he/she learns you are from 009.

This blog has become an outlet for cowardly, disgruntled, and jealous coppers(from 009), to put the names of people they don't have the balls to confront in person, on a website in an attempt to embarrass and antagonize them. The person that is responsible for mentioning names and writing such slanderous bullshit should, and may have to one day answer to these people. I think it is disgraceful that Chicago Police Officers have to use a site to bash each other in such a manner. Rest assured, that it is not the norm in 009, but probably a very select few Cunts. They have no balls and are definitely not the ones who will have your backs in 009. The persons that were slandered so viciously are all good people, as well as good workers.

Damn!

Just when I thought using my actual identity and credibility to speak the truth about this corruptly managed, clout-infested police department.

HOW ABOUT ME?

I am shocked to realize that twenty-four hours has elapsed without an anonymous, cowardly and vicious management tool attacking me for my alleged "homosexuality". (not that there's anything wrong with that).

While I can't understand why anyone would wear sunglasses at night, my personal experience suggests that the unidentified officer ("purple sunglasses") from 009 is probably one hell of a copper. Shades (pun intended) of Dan Lukensmeyer?

And to his attackers that ridiculed him on this site for giving a toss to six perps as a 10-99 unit, I say that your cut 'n' run "boast" that you didn't stop as back-up makes you a disgrace to the CPD. Shit, I'm retired and I would have his back "on view".

Stay safe out there. Next time, request back-up. And while it's none of my business, consider confining the sunglasses for sunny days.

Since I have been on the street, I have gained 6 pounds the first year, 8 pounds the next, 10 pounds the third year, and 6 this last year. That is 30 pounds in 4 years mostly because of the quality of the food. If someone were to force them to make it less fatty, I would be the better for it. I'm not saying that I would not have gained any weight, just alot less.

You've got no one to blame but yourself.

Push away from the away from the table, Porky. Just 'cause your mama told you to clean your plate doesn't mean you have to do it.

I've been on this job almost 18 years and I've only gained 10 pounds. I force myself to the gym 3 times a week and I limit the fries, chips and sweets.

Also, with the sky high price of gas, I bike everywhere I can in the summer. When I get home at night, I throw my .25 in my pocket and go for a 10 mile ride. Besides no traffic, it helps me sleep better and I'm not sitting in front of the TV, eating crap.

You can eat healthy while work, you just have to have the willpower to do it.

Now get that fork out of your fat pie hole!

For the previous complainer/moaner in regards the CPD helicopter. The helicopter is finally being "retrofitted" with up to date bells and whistles to further assist the guys on the ground. Stop bitchin about the helicopter operation, it's not their fault it takes sooo long to get things done! City procurement has them "jumping through hoops" to get these things bid out and completed. Bottom line is that because bids/jobs need to go through the procurement process, it takes a long time. Sooner or later the bird will be up on afternoons. Be patient and be glad that the department is finally moving to the 20th century. Maybe someday the city will realize what an asset helicopter operations is and fund it enough to move on to the 21st century. Until then I'm thankful their out there when they are!

It will not be long now until the city council will be conducting hearings on a new police superintendent.

They should ask each candidate, how well prepared is this city to respond to a terrorist attack.

If the candidate answers that we are very well prepared, everyone in the department is trained and equipped to handle anything thrown at us immediately. They will know that this person is a liar.

But, this may be exactly what they want. The mayor and the city counsel probably want someone who will take the flak for our lack of preparation and leave them blameless.

The problem with the fat in the deep fryers besides choleric, is the " trans fat", more than 1mg a day is toxic to the human system and increases your chance of heart disease almost by 50 percent.(small McD's fry has 3mg) There were 2 independent studies done at Harvard of 80,000 participants each that came to this conclusion. Demnark has outlawed trans fats, Cananda is in the process of it. You can still put corn oil, vegetable oil, canola etc in a deep fryer, and have a better quality product. Trans fats when invented were extremely cheap, and the longevity outweighs natural oils. So it's either your heart or save a dollar. The restuarant and health industry has known about this for years. But money walks and dead men don't talk. You have enough stress dealing with mind boggling exposure to the lowest scum of the earth everyday, let alone a@@hole bosses, an abusive goverment, looking at penitary time when you f*&& up and make a mistake, screwy hours and 6 day work week, all extremely stressful and bad for your ticker, why add to it just to make some coporate giant like McD's richer.
Have your fried food within reason, just make sure they don't
cook it in a synthetic oil that your body cannot process or elimate properly.
By law now they have to post trans fat on your packaged food. On that same token if something has more than zero but less than 1mg they are allowed to round down and post zero. Another goverment lobbyist's scam.

Being a female officer with 7 years on the job, and have gained 5 lbs since the academy. It is not about the quality of food it is about individual genetic makeup. I eat fatty foods, junk food, ice cream do not go to the gym my only workout is getting in and out of the car and don't gain a pound. Someone else may look at a pie and gain 5 lbs. people should be able to choose what to eat it should not be forced on them. Why should I have to eat foods that don't taste as good because someone else has no willpower not to eat it???
