What the Fuck?

This is getting insane. Can anyone save Chicago from its politicians?
  • Mayor Daley will eliminate 3,000 vacant positions and lay off 1,000 city employees -- 735 of them union members -- to solve Chicago's worst budget crisis in a generation, union leaders were told Monday.

    The biggest hit will be felt by Laborers Union Local 1001, whose members are in line for 300 pink slips in the Streets and Sanitation Department.

You want to know what Laborers do? Watch "The Sopranos." Those "no-show, no work" spots Tony is always talking about? Laborers. Here's the fun part though:
  • The 3,000 vacancies to be eliminated include: 329 sworn Chicago Police officers; 424 non-sworn police employees; 12 sworn firefighters, and 10 non-sworn fire employees.
So the City is finally admitting that we're short. Of course we're "only" short 329 sworn spots. And the 424 non-sworn? How many of those are filled with sworn at the moment? More than few we're going to say. Total number of officers to be returned to the street? Zero.

Now go down a few posts and look at the Huberman scandal. He's trying to parlay possibly three years of street time (and believe us, we're being damn generous calling it three years) along with OEMC time (where he drove that monstrosity into the ground), ADS time (accomplishments - zero) and now CTA time into a Police pension? It's outrageous.

And the topper?
  • Meanwhile, all but six of Chicago's 50 aldermen plan to accept a 6.2 percent cost-of-living increase that will boost their annual salaries to $110,556 Jan. 1. [...]

    Forty-four aldermen declined to sign the affidavit from Budget Director Bennett Johnson, in part, because of the effect it would have on their pensions. Some were offended that Johnson even asked.

A SIX POINT TWO PERCENT COST OF LIVING INCREASE??? For a part time job??? Because it affects their pensions? Hey assholes?!? We have a fucking civilian who didn't even do enough time to become vested attempting to steal from our 48% funded pension while Shortshanks offers us ONE POINT ONE FUCKING PERCENT on our payraises that are already 16 months overdue?

Un FUCKING Believable. Where are the Feds? Where is the Inspector General? Where are the goddamn voters?

I really think it's time someone in the media or even better, the federal government start asking these simple quetions and demand answers now and not accept the typical daley answer of "I was unaware that any of this was going on" or the "I'll have to get back to you on this"

Then some of these pieces of shit actually got smart and got the media in their back pocket. Well, now print media is collapsing and in it's wake "internet media" is surging. Maybe, just maybe through blogs, like SCC, and people sick of being trampled on, like Mike Shields, light will be shed on these slugs like the media used to do before sleeping with the enemy. Now maybe the sleeping masses will wake up and be pissed off and THEN we will see some real CHANGE. Not just some slogan being thrown around by one of the pieces of shit.

Why the fuck do alderman get a pension for a part time position? How may years do they have to serve to be vested?

I was under the impression that in a republic it's citizens served in public office to ameliorate the lives of the electorate; not themselves.

In Chitroit the electorate is just a teat for the politicians.

People please vote every current elected official out of office.

JFed should read these articles and the FOP/PBPA should use these as bargaining points.

Policing is dangerous work, and the danger lurks not on the streets alone.

The pressures of law enforcement put officers at risk for high blood pressure, insomnia, increased levels of destructive stress hormones, heart problems, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicide, University at Buffalo researchers have found through a decade of studies of police officers.



Stress takes toll on police officers' mental and physical health

"Where are the God damned voters?"


THAT, my friends, is the billion dollar question.


Is there a proposition on this November Election's ballot for a Recall Statute, similar to California's?


If so, how about an article on it, detailing it's provisions, authors, sponsors and supporters?


Also, how about an article detailing the nominating petition number of signatures required for every city, cook county and state elected office? (or links to said information)


And the specific procedural hurdles one must leap to successfully get one's name on the ballot, whether as an independent or as a newly formed political party.


While it may seem futile to attempt to get elected via anything other than the Democratic or Republican party, since both parties are essentially the same cesspool of miscreants, what other choice do the citizens have but to reject both parties and seek honest representation elsewhere?

Nice thought, if the economy wasn't in the crapper. Since the economy IS in the crapper, we open ourselves up for a massive reduction in the pension benefits for ALL current and future retirees. How? What political whore, in these shitty economic times, wouldn't jump at the chance to score points with the electorate by pushing for an amendment to save the same electorate hundreds of millions in future tax dollars by re-writing our pension laws? Too many political whores already think our pensions are too big as it is. We can't trust anyone in office to do right by us so why give these leeches an opportunity to fuck us again?

I hate Daley, Blago and all these useless incumbent whores as much as you do, but we gotta keep that mutha clozed.

While it may seem futile to attempt to get elected via anything other than the Democratic or Republican party, since both parties are essentially the same cesspool of miscreants, what other choice do the citizens have but to reject both parties and seek honest representation elsewhere?

Why the fuck do alderman get a pension for a part time position? How may years do they have to serve to be vested?

I was under the impression that in a republic it's citizens served in public office to ameliorate the lives of the electorate; not themselves.

In Chitroit the electorate is just a teat for the politicians.

HEY ASSHAT!!! No, I am NOT one of the pension board fools... Shields looked like a CLOWN doing what he did... so what, he caught Luberman off guard... i guarantee tomorrow Luberman has all the answers and gets his pension becuase Shields, although intentions were good, fucked it up BAD! FIRST by laughing halfway through his questioning... it seemed like a joke SECOND for not pressing the questions, not speaking clearly when talking to Larry Yellen and not getting ANY point accross, let alone why Luberman should not get a pension and THIRD because this is a guy ALWAYS looking for the free handout because who his dad was not because what he has done.. ANYONE who worked with MEATBALL will tell you he didnt do shit! From day 1 he was crying about not getting easy street do I want a guy like THAT looking out for my pension??? HELL NO!!! So Im glad his old man held your slip after the Bulls riots, but FUCK YOU AND FUCK HIM!!! YOU BOTH ARE PART OF THE OLD SCHOOL CLOUT DAYS WE ALL WISH TO BE BEHIND US!!! And stuck his neck out??? How I ask? by asking a mundane question that got deflected? The old conference call... nice one Ron... But if the MEATBALL can be so easily dissuaded as he was, he is NOT the real deal HE IS THE MEATBALL!!!

Now, they look up my voting registration, which they will, and what I declare myself to be, whether its Dem, Rep. or Ind...

Contrary to what you might think, the Chicago Police Department isn't a charity organization. Each member draws a check. Each member, well maybe not Huberman or O'Keefe, took an oath. Now you read the blogs here and all you see is how fucked up the city is, how crooked the political structure is, and on and on. Personally, I don't call the police, because there's really very little they're allowed to do these days with the exception of document incidents which already occurred. But its not for anyone working as a law enforcement officer to tell any citizen not to call. That isn't your job.
But if you'd like to handle my mortgage payment and my share of the property taxes I and every other citizen pays that go towards your salaries, then I'd say fine, you can tell me what I can do. Otherwise, go fuck yourself.

Boy don't I wish there was ZERO activity, I parked LEGALLY (seeing as I am married to a cop and the car is registered in his name)near the 22nd police district. Come back to my car and there is a parking ticket. I am parked legally so I take pictures to dispute it. Turns out not only did this Officer write me a ticket for parking illegal, he moved the "address" on the ticket to make it so...He/She wrote the address on the ticket for a block away(in the illegal zone)...but the idiot "moved" me in front of the firehouse down the street...hmmm, don't think I would have only gotten a ticket...I would assume that I would be picking up my car from the impound lot...

So there are still officers out there making money for the shitty and by lying at that! Thanks Officer Friendly in the 22nd District. My husband hasn't had a raise in almost two years, but hey let me pay $60 for your lie! Asshole!

Another rocket scientist speaks, devoid of even a modicum of common sense.

The city council is our city's version of the Legislative Branch of our city government.

You know, that branch that is part of the checks and balances of a Constitutional Democracy.

Executive, Legislative and Judicial.


Just because the present bunch of idiots inhabiting our city's Legislative Branch leave much to be desired as authentic, honest, intelligent and dedicated representatives of their ward's constituents doesn't mean we, the citizens, should eliminate, or decimate, the Constitutional Legislative Branch of our city's government.


It's not the publicly elected offices that are the problem, it's the Incumbent inhabitants of those offices.


There is no simple minded way to ensure good and honest government in a Democracy, no automatic system that will provide honest and intelligent representation of the best interests of the citizens, no magical fairy dust that the citizens can depend upon to fulfill the responsibilities every citizen has to participate in their own Democracy.


Call for the electorate to reject the reelecting of Incumbents, be they Executive, Legislative or Judicial branch incumbents.


Anyone calling for the reduction of our Legislative Branch of city government is really promoting the absolute rule of the Executive Branch.

That's the point Dear Citizen. There aren't enough police to even drive through to at least give a police presence.

The officers that work plain clothes within a 'nicer' district are farmed out to the ghetto neighborhoods.

We ARE doing our sworn duty. Respond to calls of service. The days of being pro-active (self-initiated) policing are gone.

We aren't ignoring our responsibilities. Angry? I don't blame you - so are we. Call your Alderman, call City Hall. Tell THEM what a loss of hiring more police is doing to this City. Cuz, they ain't listening to us.

If you think the districts are short now just wait! There is a new detail being announced soon. Not only will we have TRU and other specialized units but there is a new one in the works called Special Strike Force, Strike Squad or something along that line. It will be about 100+ officers. Where will they come from??? Districts!

All of you--leave Ron DA LUBE Huberman alone. Remember--

You don't tug on Superman's cape.
You don't piss in the subway tubes.
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger, and
You don't mess around with DA LUBE!

Luberman made his pension play on shitshanks order but told to wait until he is conveniently on vacation in the C.C.P to bone up on KGB tactics to squash dissent in the socialist paradise (nothing comes to sleepers but dreams) of Chicago... Beware when the big men in trench coats jump out of the cookie truck that pulls next to you at the light...

"Sarcasm?" "Well hello my old friend Silliness!"

Where are all the police? 103rd and Maplewood. I haven't seen a squad car in my neighborhood in weeks. So if in fact there is a work slowdown, it would be hard to notice. But if your attitude is to ignore your responsibilities of serving and protecting, I have to say fuck you too.

UMMMM .....They are probably on the east end of the district. The citizens who pay the taxes and DESERVE our service, are not going to get it, because we are too busy dealing with the others

JFed should read these articles and the FOP/PBPA should use these as bargaining points.

Policing is dangerous work, and the danger lurks not on the streets alone.

The pressures of law enforcement put officers at risk for high blood pressure, insomnia, increased levels of destructive stress hormones, heart problems, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicide, University at Buffalo researchers have found through a decade of studies of police officers.

Stress takes toll on police officers' mental and physical health

BESIDES ALL THAT, I BELIEVE ITS ALSO GIVEN ME A BAD CASE OF HEMERROIDS. ONE OF EM EVEN LOOKS LIKE DILLY-DALEY'S HEAD.

Isn't selling "city" property against the law? Shouldn't there be a "city-wide" vote on this? How could this guy decide to sell something for 99 years?

why doesn't FOP organize a protest? Not a strike, but a true-blue protest.

Hey folks,
You heard it here first.
The Huberman pension grab is the first step in Ron for Superintendent after J-Fed. They are giving J-Fed the big pay to lay the ground work for Ron keeping up the big pay tradition. It will be said that he is already "in the system" has the varied experience, was a CPD officer ( look how the PO's whinned about J-Fed being an outsider)...etc, etc. Ron-boy will absolutely "pay back" all those who fight against him.
Ron-boy is a Daley hack to the core; petty, vindictive, and enpowered to harm. (In fact, almost all of the current Exempts could be described this way).
