Psychic Again?

Back on 17 October, we posted the following:
  • But by asking for $293 million, Daley and the aldercreatures can "compromise" at the $190 million mark and pass themselves off as heroes to the voters who are about to get hammered by the State and County governments by claiming to have "saved" everyone a cool hundred million.

    Why does it take an amateur cop blog to do the media's job? We guess that the "public watchdog" is more the "mayor's lapdog" when it comes to actually doing right by the people.
Enter the mayor's lapdog - Fran Spielman:
  • Mayor Daley will “substantially reduce” his proposed $108 million property tax increase, but rebellious aldermen will have to wait to find out how and by how much, City Hall sources said Wednesday.

    [...]

    The precise mix won’t be known until Daley signs off on the plan. But, one thing is certain: Aldermen who squawked like never before about a Daley budget will have something to show their constituents.

Wow. It's almost like we have a copy of their play book.

It's like when you go to buy a new car and instead of buying the $50K BMW you buy the $25K Ford and you claim to have saved $25K...no.... you didn't spend the extra $25K...same with politics, they will now try to tell us that they saved us money...PLEASE.

We have deal the city saved us money! another daley and crew concoction, like a halloween surprise the witches brew is boiling over! the alderidiots get a hefty raise in there hidden for "office expenses", maybe to set up more free illegal identification rings run by the munoz crime family!

And the fact that most of the Chicago electorate are as cerebral as a herd of sheep certainly makes matters increasingly worse.

"The Toddler"? He could even run a Kool-Aid stand into bankruptcy on a sweltering August day.

Generally, people are stupid and there even getting dumber.

God help us and our police officers. Enough is enough.

I'm just your average flat foot, but I've got a couple of ideas on saving a bit of our tax dollars. How about losing the $30,000 per aldercreature account for decorating their offices. How about the aldercreatures reducing their pay to that of enlisted personnel serving in the armed forces. They are, after all, public servants. Why should they get more cash to decorate than most of their constituents make in a year? And which one was crying that 30K wasn't enough?
How about the mayor not travel to his Michigan home with his escort of city cops. You thing that might save a buck or two? Maybe he should take his own advise and try taking the bus once in a while.
Hell, there are probably lots of little things that can be done to save a buck or two in these times.

Just my two cents...the two that haven't gone to the tax on bottled water.

Watched the news yesterday, they had a brief segmant on the county budget hearing and the best comment came from of all people, some dirty toothless crackhead. "If you have a leaking bucket you fix the leak, you don't just keep adding water to the bucket!!" So mr. mayor dickhead and our esteemed alderthieves, where is all the money going? Do we really need to spend over one hundred thousand a year to polish a bean? Do we really need 50 alderthieves using over three hundred thousand a year each(salary, car, office expenses, etc.)? New York has over three times the amount of people and only half the alderman/councilmen. Why do we change the plants in the stupid planter boxes each month whether needed or not? I could go on and on about wasteful spending. Any media reading this, here's a great investigative story to try your hand at.

If the city is short all this money, stop WAISTING all that money all bullshit and get back to basics starting with security of its citizens and visitors (aka police officers). how about all the useless aldermen and women give back that crazy 30% raise they gave themselves.

I have the solution to all the money problems. Cut all public aid to anyone who fails a urinallysis.You piss hot, no money. All money collected from any lottery or soon to be casino goes directly to the schools and not the general fund.Fine anyone caught with weed, no more jail for cannabis but a stiff fine will produce revenue and let's face it, most if not all of our arrestee's smoke weed.This revenue will be rather lucrative and can go into the general fund.Lower the taxes on gas and food stuffs, more volume sold equals more revenue, raising taxes drives people away to shop elsewhere(I only buy gas and food out of the city,and lately out of the county). These vehicle impoundmnets, while a good idea are too stiff, lower the fine to $500.00 flat,that way you will collect more revenue rather than the goof just saying to hell with the car,I'll just get another one.All of this can be done without hurting the taxpayer who is going broke just by living here.Cut your spending,lower taxes,and raise revenue.Where is the flaw in my plan? I'll tell you where, It is in cutting the socialist bennefits provided by our tax dollars and given to thoes who will not work.Cutting off the flow of free money will never be addopted by city and county officials, yet there has to be and end to this.We can not continually bear this burder to no end, tax payers are dwindling in numbers while the leeches of society grow rapidly and without control.What do they contribute? Nothing, but they take all they can get and still continue to break the law. I say it's simple, cut all funding to felons. If they can't live productively and peacefully within the law, we have places for them.Prison. Let's make them pay for once, it's for there own good and "for the chilren", to add you're socialist battlecry.

We are still going to get hammered. Instead of spending or wasting less money and prioritizing the budget based on emergency services, infrastructure, and sanitation, they will keep spending money on wasteful failures.

Unfortunately, the first cuts are always the services most needed. it is the I'll show you philosophy of politics.

We really cannot get around the property taxes. But, we can get around the rest. Do not shop in Chicago or Cook COunty any more. Do not pruchase gas here either. With a little planning, you could make all of your purchases outside the county and save a bundle.

Last week, I paid one dollar a gallon cheaper for gas in Will County. Smokes were three dollars cheaper, and the taxes on my food bill were cheaper.

I barely used any gas getting back. Buy off the internet if possible. Do anything but spend money in this city.

We, not only cops, but all citizens should start a boycott of Chicago. Go on all the blogs and leave comments that Chicago should be boycotted. Write every where you can and urge people to boycott Chicago; do not shop here, do not visit here, don not buy from Chicago merchants. Do not spend money here.

Can I vote for you?

We have got to take it back, someway, somehow. I have a 90 yr-old grandmother that says she has never seen shit like this. Never. Years ago, politicians knew the public expected a bang for their buck and they AT THE VERY LEAST made an effort to appear that they were doing just that.

No more. Not anymore. They are arrogant, stupid bastards and sooner or later the public is going to figure out a way to get even and thin these assholes out. Put intelligent and responsible people back in office. We have to. Government is collapsing in front of us. The center cannot hold. This cannot go on. Average citizens are barely making it with supporting the welfare recipients who pimp the system and the politicians who are raping society in order to line their own pockets.

Thanks for the support but I'm not running for anything in this state. I do have some other ideas though. I always thought you should only be taxed based on a 40 hour work week, any overtime should be tax free and why stop at 25? Get rid of all 50 aldremen, I keep asking why do we need them at all? I have never asked an alderman for anything and never will, in fact I once threatened to lock one up for electioneering right outside of ST. Daniels church. God bless your Grandmother, it's people like her that made this country great.Her generation truely were the best.To all city and county officials; look, I don't want a damned thing from you, but I do want you to stop taxing me and and my fellow working class citizens to death. A day will come when the piper must be paid,who will be left to pay him?

Because Mayor don't want to let the CAT out of the bag that my lead up to Federal Investigation of misappropriation of Olympic funding. I thought the city had a surplus budget 2 years ago by the revenue dept street light cameras? Did you ever pay for Meigs Field yet? No, you passed it to the tax payers in the sum of over $10 million.
Mr. Mayor you may want to think about retirement and enjoy yourself with your beautiful retirement package. You don't want to be old and going to Federal Prison like George Ryan and no pension. Then again, it would be pay back for the city employees to see you bunk mates with the old GOV. Drop the soap Irish spring maybe! LOL!!!

Drug test all the Alderman see how many test hot. They are bitching about how we do our jobs. What about them? How many abandoned buildings are on each block especially in Roseland. To this
alderman YOUR NOT DOING YOUR JOB EFFECTIVELY. I'm calling you out your a dog ass. YOUR WAISTING TAX PAYER DOLLARS JUST BY BEING AN ALDERMAN. Look at Michigan ave from 107th-120th. Garbage litters the streets, gang bangers hanging in front of the shops providing protection. Robberies are up, dope slinging at a good medium, and prostitutes are flurshing. These maybe a police problem, but it sure a bad refelection of YOU. YOU DON'T CARE, YOU MIGHT EVEN BE SCARED OF YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD TOO! I remember seeing you at a violence march and when your name was announced it was a quiet applause. I laughed. YOUR A DOG ASS!

great idea having everyone on the public aid/dole take a piss test to get their aid. Line up and fail, no more public aid of any kind. Amazing that They can go out and get high, find money for that, but can't get their lazy dope-head asses out of bed to go look for a job. Too easy getting free handouts, compliments of the taxpayers, via the DemocRAT-Socialist Party.
