The Mayor in Athens

This couldn't be done with a few well placed phone calls? We're sure that the mayor has a few buddies in Greektown who'd have been more than willing to call their second cousins over in Athens to conduct a quick Q & A session with the local politicians to get this information:
  • Mayor Daley is compiling a list of lessons learned during his week-long trip to Europe. The mayor spent his second full day in Athens touring the Olympic Stadium, athlete housing and cultural attractions.
  • Athens' Olympic Stadium is a monument to civic pride and urban engineering. It's also one of many reasons the 20004 Athens Olympic Games went $10 billion over budget. [did everyone get that? $10 BILLION dollars over budget - we are so doomed - SCC]
  • They saw apartment buildings that were home to 22,000 athletes. They have now been converted to subsidized housing for 10,000. But one-third of the apartments are empty.
Again, a simple phone call could have covered most of this. Maybe even a detailed reading of a Farmer's Almanac combined with a few pencil pushers poring over budget reports. We're just wondering what new and amazing laws the mayor is going to push for in Springfield to pay for this monstrosity. Hopefully though, we should have enough warning (and seniority) before 2016 to know exactly where to bid our furloughs to either be (A) out of town for the whole thing or (B) in a position to clean up on security side jobs.

I'm so very glad the Mayor and his wife are enjoying their vacation, er, Olympic bid. I've been too busy to see if they mailed me a postacard as I've been interviewing w/different companies to find a better paying job in this GODFARSAKEN CITY. Looks like I'll have to work out in the burbs, like everyone else...

Now I know why many of you became cops!!

Don't worry SCC, I'm sure we have plenty of "homies" that will love the new "Cabrini-Green South".

The Green party is actually a good thing for America. It's witless members are all liberal tree huggers and would vote for the Lib/Dem party otherwise.

Each Green party vote is a vote the Dems lose.

Relax, there's no way the IOC is going to award Chicago the Olympics. It's a non-issue.

Hey Puff,

I think we pulled it off. The Mayor wants you to know you are free to call on us anytime you feel we may be of assist to you.

The Mayor and our sponsored elected officials rely on you for Getting Out the Vote. As you know the Democratic Party relies heavily on the Getting Out the Vote Organization to reach our younger voter's. Party on as Democrats the Mayor says.

We further appreciate your quick ability to align yourselves during our election runs. If we can be of further assist in any matters of maintaining your Non Profit status let us know.

We will be back in town shortly, as you know were in Greece taking it up the arse. Upon on arrival back to Chi town we can begin to set up our meetings for our park sponsored events.

On behalf of all the taxpayer's, again thank you for.

GETTING OUT THE VOTE.

Wat Up Mayor

Clipped the above for you, looks like Greece has nutin over you. Your already ahead with the TIF zones, right?

Look I know Wesley Snipes is being hammered with the Tax Evasion indictment and all but please don't mix me up wit him. I aint bout tat my man. I do admit I still tunes from time to time, but ya know I remix um, right?

Thanks man for promoting my new name, ya know it was a good idea to shed Puff Daddy and come out as Diddy specially after the gun then beating rap. I'm better now, after Rage Management the courts Fuc&%g put me through, just keepin it straight.

How's the fund raisin goin in Greece is it as good as it was in the Latin countries, and Israel see I'm learin from you. Word up takin it in the arse is good for the money. Your Global my man, dinners on me when you get back.

Diddy, aka Puff Daddy, aka Shaun Combs

10/18/2006 11:57:20A.M. is 100% correct. The IOC will give the Olympics to Chicago when pigs fly. It just ain't gonna happen.

IOC: Chicago's a cinch . Remember what a total bunch of bribe taking scum are on that committee.

Denver got caught paying them, Athens got caught paying them and Seoul got caught paying them. It's all about bribes to the IOC and who better to manage a situation like that than our local city fathers? They invented the bribe.
