Olympic Bid to be Announced

Saturday afternoon, we shall find out if we have to really consider retiring before the year 2016.
  • (Channel 7) - That decision will be announced Saturday in Washington DC. Members of Chicago's Olympic committee are polishing their final presentation, and for the first time, the head of that committee is handicapping the city's odds against Los Angeles.
  • (Channel 2) - With actual construction still two votes and many years away, maps, sketches and computer animations help us imagine what a Chicago 2016 Summer Games would be like. But it's more than that, Chicago will tell Olympic officials. It's also the way we live, and celebrate.
  • (Channel 5) - Rogers reported that the USOC did ask for follow-ups in the past few weeks on some of the venues and the city's guarantee package. Officials added that they do not believe the infamous police tape, which allegedly showed an off-duty Chicago police officer beating a bartender, would hurt Chicago's bid.
We'll be KMA plus a few, so it has to be an option. We just can't see having to put up with this much BS. And we'd have to consider moving out of Illinois just to avoid the complete destruction of the tax structure to support this monstrosity.

Did anyone see the Tribune report where China is going to spend $40 Billion on their games - over 3 TIMES the original estimate? Lord help us.

With any luck, the Bulls will win the championship again and the fine hardworking citizens of the west and south sides will again peacefully assemble and end the city's chances of hosting this great benefit we are desperately trying to achieve.

That 40 billion is our money we gave to China. Our HUGE trade deficit is the reason. Let them have the Olympics. We will pay for it whether its in China or here in Chicago.

I propose that Tony da A, coming from a special ops house, was on a classified mission to derail the olmpics, thus saving us and our pensions. The pensions that the stuttering prick was going to loot to pay for the games.
Tony'll take the hit, then be given a medal in 20 years!!!

Relax,,this is just the selection for the U.S. bid. Do you honestly think that with our standing in the pussified lib world today that those pussified libs on the commitee will chose a US site? Besides, the word is that the final pick will be Rio de Janeiro as the South American continent has never hosted an olympics.

Between Stroger and Emil Jones and the State thieves treating the treasury, or what there is of it, as a family trust along with the massive cost over runs if we get the olympics this city and state will look and be worse than the results of Katrina. There will be massive cost over runs even though Honest Abe Daly says there wont be. Daly , who by his own admission knew nothing when all the key political people in his administration perp walked off to jail.

pray that L.A. gets the U.S. Olympic bid.....although, come to think of it, if the U.S. Olympic committee includes the sheer numbers of indicted and convicted politicians, Chicago's demonstrated expertise in political and organizational corruption (is there a gold medal for that?) in their consideration of a host city, Chicago should get the bid....hands down!

The Olympics will bankrupt this city. The cost over runs will be astronomical, this is Chicago, after all. There is hope though. Just think, the aldercreatures will all have their hands out and the Feds will start Operation Gold Medal. They will use the power of eminate domain to take a city landmark to house them and put them on public display after their conviction- Lincoln Park Zoo.

I am apolitical. But after watching Daley's press conference following Cline's retirement/firing.... What an arrogrant,condasending prick. This is why we broke away from the king 200 plus years ago. Too much power for too long!!!! Well the lemmings voted him in for another term, but hopefully he can get slapped in the face by the loss of the Olympics. Keep your fingers crossed!!!! ABBATE, MURDERS, POLITICAL CORRUPTION ON A GRAND SCALE, 3RD WORLD TRANSIT SYSTEM, CHICAGO SUCKS......DID I MENTION ABBATE U.S.O.C?----NO POLISH FEMALE ATHLETES WILL BE SAFE.

All the olympics will bring Chicago is more affordable housing and new government facilities in ghetto neighborhoods, an extension of everything Daley has been doing for years. When was the last time you saw a new school, library, hospital, or park go up in a location not comprised of those who pay the least to no taxes.

To keep the democratic machine going they need to fuel it by the votes exploited from the ignorant. It has been that way since the trains rolled up from the south.

The only plus side to the olympic bid is that it takes away time on the news hours that would be filled up with anti-police banter.

I understand that New York just paid off the Lake Placid Olympic Bond issue. Thats 30 year bonds.

Havent been able to confirm it, heard Bob Brinker talking about it last Saturday on WLS radio.

There’s plenty of money for the Olympics, right?
According to the ‘07 City Budget, Police Pension Fund is only short a mere $3,808,300.000 For those of us not used to so many zeros that’s…

3.8 BILLION Fucking DOLLARS!

The four city pension funds combined have a liability of $8.5 Billion.

In quotes. This needs to be the mission statement of the CPD down at HQ (right at the front desk-hell put on the side of all the squad cars). It's Perfect. I've heard it from Dicks, Tac guys, LTs, and PPOs.
