Where Did This Money Come From?

  • Despite a budget deficit estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars, the Daley administration is giving raises for 50 politically appointed Streets and Sanitation ward superintendents.

    The move angered labor leaders, who have been told by the administration that unionized city workers must make sacrifices---or even face layoffs---to balance City Hall’s budget.

    "They are asking our people for concessions, yet giving their bosses a raise," said Chicago Federation of Labor leader Dennis Gannon. "It leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It's just not rational."

Mr. Gannon, using the word "rational" in anything to do with Daley, the Machine and the City of Chicago is a hanging offense in these here parts. We urge you to withdraw the statement and just keep going to the media to point out the base hypocrisy on display by the mayor.

He said "...not rational...", didn't he?

Fuck this city. Great leaders we got. Just look how ass backwards this city is. U got a crossed eyed fed running a police department with a bartender as his side kick. Then u got a midget napolean mayor crying poor and asking city employees to take unpaid days off then turning around and giving these guys raises while he vacations in china. U got stupid ass reverands trying to take kids out of school and get them arrested by protesting in business lobbies. I know i'm missing a lot more but fuck shitcago. Can't wait to retire and get the fuck out. This city is a joke

I said it before Daley should embrace the fact that legal guns will be moving in and out of our city before long. Why not make some $$$$$ charge $100 per gun and open the door to guns shops in Chicago and make more $$$$$. Heard the Mayo use to carry a snub when states attorney can anyone confirm? He did not have 22 body gaurds and was supose to be a good shot at the range!!!!!

Heard the team was hanging around the halls looking all tuff. I am not impressed. Just what we need in 006. Bunch of guys walking around like their shit don't stink. The attitude resembled the SOS unit of passed. You know what became of them?! He chose a new guy to head the organization-Sgt. Parker formerly of Narcotics. Parker then hand-picked officers. Parker? Why did we go to YET another outsider from 006 to create a team? Did YOU even ask old guys to join you team? Then, Johnson tells them "do what you gotta do and we'll sort out the paper later...I need numbers"...Sounds familar. Didn't another 006th dist Boss use those famous last words?

Daley it turning the whole city, public and private sectors, against the police on this contract matterl He is out to embarass the police officers. He must really have a hatred for the police just like his father. When you wallow in slime like Richie has his whole life of course you hate the police especially when they are from the 26st street outfit crew. Now he is into white collar crime but hte US Attorney just cant see that.

He is a sneak thief, he was planning to do to Bensenville the same thing he did to Meigs Field. The same time he left for China is when the ruling came out to destroy the homes in Bensenville at the time he would not be in town. The tables got turned and his sneaky shit did't turn out. I guess the title of back stabbing rat fuck fits him perfectly.

Don't kid yourself this layoff bullshit is a hose job on the city, taxpayers and the police.

uhh, for those that don't think more than 1 step at a time, we ALL should be getting raises.

You wanna bitch that we're poor so how dare they give their buddies a raise, what the hell do you think you're gonna do if they tell YOU you're not getting a raise? Dopes.

EVERY city employee is entitled to a raise from this city if not for the mere fact that this jagoff has taxed us into a paycheck to paycheck living status in the name of continuing to enrich his friends, pissing away money on things NO ONE other than him and his buddies want, such as moving a stupid museum, and pissing away our tax dollars on his olympic bribery.

This fucker (Daley) tells everyone they better find another job, take unpaid days off and forget getting a pay raise while never DREAMING of cutting his FUCKING BULLSHIT SPENDING one penny.

Fuck Daley and his extravagant spending for bullshit only he and his enriched friends want.

Follow a budget asshole. You come up short, you take the money out of your payola schemes for useless shit and PAY YOUR FUCKING EMPLOYEES and maybe we'll continue spending money in this city.

This is the only asshole I can think of who thinks if he fucks over his constituants and they stop spending in Chicago he'll just hit them harder to make up the difference.

It doesn't work fuckstick! We'll take ALL our fucking money out of your pocket and you'll be left with no other choice.

For a guy who thought he was gonna drive the poor out of Chicago and make it so only upscale people could afford to live here, he sure knows how to fuck it over into the exact opposite effect.

Drive out the poor, fuck the people who have money over, those people then leave this city, then the poor get to come back with a vengeance and turn this City into a complete wreck. Then you can try taxing people with no money and see how far that gets you, dumbfuck!

The mayor is obviously a compleet idiot.

One week he says that the city is so broke that he needs workers to take 3 days off without pay.

Then the next week he gives raises to S&S heavies.

It was HIS and the councils' spending that put the city in financial predicament. So instead of him and the city council making a leadership show by turning back some of their salary, they bleed the lower echelon workers.

If the city can be without these workers for 3 days, then obviously they are not really needed.

Or have the aldermen cut a few relatives.

And why in this day and age isn't the city budget online??

Why do you care? Why would you even want to take part? Do you want to belong? Do you want people to like you? Do you want people to think you are the "real police?"

It is all over. Let it go.

If they do what you say they do, they will get sued, or get fired, or go to jail, or all of the above. It won't happen tommorrow. Or the next day. Or next year. It will happen in 2011 or 2012 or 2013. And if it doesn't? If they get away with it? Good for them.

You sound like you have your face pressed against the tact office window waiting for someone to let you in.

The person you imagine yourself being no longer exists. The bad ass tough guy street cleaning newspaper hero cop has gone the way of the rotary phone.

YOU ARE A CLERK! You work for the department of crime. You write down what happened, when it happened, and who it happened to. You pick up casings and other pieces of evidence, package them and store them forever.

What about arresting the offender, you ask? No one cares who that is. Not the department, not the citizens, not the mayor, not the prosecutors, not the juries, not the judges, not no one. Not even the victims. They don't give a fuck either.

Do this job for money and nothing else. Find something that interests you outside of this job and focus on that. Use this job for the money you need to do the thing you like. As long as that thing is not this job.

I'm not being mean. I like you. I used to be you, but I'm not anymore. I'm giving you the advice every old timer gave when I was too new to understand. I wish I had learned this sooner, so I'm telling you now.

We hear a lot about the unions "giving back" to the city that employs them. How we all need to "chip in" and help out. I still havne't heard how many days the mayor, the aldercreatures, the aldercreatures staff, the aldercreatures expense accounts and other perks, the police brass, and J-fed himself are giving back. Just us, not them. But then again they work more than we do and deserve the extra money. After all we get breaks on coffee and lunches. Just another thought, I wonder if Jodie paid full boat for his uniforms. And I'd like to know where he buys his polo shirts.

in order to qualify as a charitable organization for the state of illinois a financial report must be submitted to the attorney general's office listed the compensation for the three highest paid employees of flop the report signed by treasurer caprelli listed donahue as making 54,000. dollars when in fact he was making $150,000.00 plus pleines (i never had such a sweet job) salary was also mis represented all this information is open to the general public caparelli hd to file two amended returns which finally listed donahue's and pleines's compensation the board audit committee chairman was notified of the error but refused to correct or take any action so i filed a complaint with the attorney general the rest is history flop in order not to list the compensation of donahue nd pleines pulled flops charitiable organization title and flop is no longer recognized something daley might do

I just made my son read your post. He wants to be a police officer. If he does, then he should have his eyes open. I can't believe that I am telling him the same thing my father told me. Get a degree and do something where you can make a lot of money and don't have to kiss anyone's ass.

Honor has gone the way of shame in our society and I wouldn't want him to lose his life for nothing.

For those of you that love your job and go out everyday to protect me and my family in spite of all the bulshit, thank you for that and stay safe.

For all you ranked bastards and po's hiding at 35th Street that make officers write posts like the one above this one, I hope you lay in bed at night and are haunted by the image of the piece of shit that you are.

Thanks Wayne, give them hell,

Fellow 603 dick.

Its not really public knowledge but the alderthieves are getting a raise, no strike that a cost of living increase not a raise. How silly of me to thing alderthieves would be getting a raise during a crisis. They even took care of that silly requirement of having to vote on it by passing the needed legislation to make CCOLAs automatic without the minor inconvenience of the public hearings or the public even knowing about it. But then again they deverve it for all the hours they put in. And by the way does anyone know how much they pay for helth insurance? Or what Daley pays for that matter?

One asks what does the FOP do all day long. Well I know what they don't do: qualify with their weapons. No sense being like the rest of us. And notice how quick they were to defend themselves with every resource at their disposal. Us? they would have thrown us under the bus in a heartbeat.
