Didn't We Cover This?

  • The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama sought to allay concerns from Chicago taxpayers and city officials today with promises it would foot the bill for an expansive outdoor rally at the southern end of Grant Park on election night.
  • "They have assured us that they're willing to pay," said Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications spokeswoman Jennifer Martinez, adding that the city had yet to hit the total button. "We're still outlining what some of these things will entail."
We certainly hope that in these tight budgetary times and in the midst of a thousand or more layoffs, that every penny was pinched to spare taxpayers any uncomfortable burdens.

WILL THE BUDGET TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE INVETIBLE LOOTING THAT WILL SURELY TAKE PLACE WIN OR LOSE?
WILL IT TAKE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WILL BE LOST AS RESULT OF THE LOOTING?
WILL IT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE DAMAGE TO PRIVATE/PUBLIC PROPERTY THAT RESULTS FROM THE RIOTS.

We don't need Chicago politics in the White House. This country is fuck up enough we can't afford it.

We are all set for the Nobama rally.

Mayor Shortshanks is counting all the money he is going to make/save.

1. Hire more Traffic Aides to write a million parkers during the rally.

2. No CPD will be used and he will save money by hiring Securitas instead. If a crime happens, they will be right on scene to call the police.

In case you weren't around for the Michael Jordan years of the Chicago Bulls, be prepared for the nonsense that will occur. It's funny that Democracy and elections, which this country is famous for, has guaranteed a peaceful transfer of power from one government to another thru our history. In fact, we spent the last century bringing it to the rest of the world by freeing it from tyrannies. We are currently providing it to Iraq and Afghanistan successfully.

Yet now we face an election in which we are now in fear of occurences that only happen in banana republics during their elections. How embarrassing this has to be that we, in the United States, are now changing our country into some third world status.

We are not a country of haves and have-nots. We are a country in which there are those who choose to get out of bed each workday and provide for their families and those who have become social dependants. We are not a country that has an unemployemnt problem, if it were, then unknown millions of people would not be crossing our borders in order to work here.

The Democrats have been promoting this class dissension for so many years that now their ultimate goal is coming into fruition.

God bless you all who serve and be careful. Stay safe. Watch for each others backs.

Win-lose-or we are still waiting to hear from Florida we are going to catch hell for this.

Now even if most Obama supporters are down there to celebrate the first Affirmative-Action President there will be 1 in 1,000 who will be down there to raise hell. From past experience they will travel from around the country to do this. I have seen it where small groups of punks will come to a city where such a major event is to take place just to raise hell. They will walk the area days before, they will plan, they will stockpile their rocks, or shit, or nailed balls, and maybe firebombs. They will have escape routes planned and cover stories. They will be sparks mixed in the tinder.

The big problem will be the Chicago based Obama supporters in the hundreds of thousands. They will come and expect to be entertained by the spectacle of history. The department, sapped by the greed of Richie, and racked by shortages of manpower, equipment and training will not be ready, no more than it was in 1968.

THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING

Here's what could happen. There will be cameras, pro and amateur EVEREWHERE. Let's say a mob of Obama supporters is about to overrun group of national network TV new people headed by a famous anchorperson. If we do like the streaming video we see at roll call and form a Scrimmage Line and hold off that advancing mob with a drum step, and save their asses, we will be the bad Chicago Police who are beating the poor Obama supporters. God forbid any of us gets on tape with a raised nightstick as it will be seen around the globe. But, if we concentrate on protecting ourselves and the Obama supporters bloody the noses of the anchor persons, and they might smash some cameras, overturn the TV trucks. Then the story will be how an undermanned and demoralized CPD was unable to cope with the problem because of the incompetence of Shortshanks and his bobblehead FBI-Guy. The story will get around the world and maybe they will cancel the Olympics for Chicago, or Daley will be indicted or we will get a decent contract or some good will come of this.

Whatever, no good will come of getting on TV by being the cop raising a nightstick in a crowd. Be safe through this.

Read the book "Obamanation" by Jerome Corsi.

I just picked it up...OH MY GOODNESS if McCain had the same family background as Obama.

After 45 pages book basically says that Obama met his mothers sperm donor 1 time at age 12, and dad was a drunk like his scotch a little to much. Bama senior killed in accident where he was drunk.

This guy is nuts, and its pointed out that his rhetoric is taken directly from Communist's-Socialist's and Marxist's and "CHANGE" being the main word.

Everybody needs to keep current with the latest polls and opinions. Apparently current polls show McCain got a substantial bump in the ratings following an excellent performance at the last debate. There is a distinct possibility that people are beginning to see through all of the bullshit rhetoric and posturing going on now and the polls are indicating a dead heat as the election draws near.

Anyone besides me find it coincidental that the just-to-the-left-of-Mao Oliver Stone would release "W" a few weeks before the election? How bout the ultraliberal Ch. 11 (PBS) starting off the 10th season of pinko-loving Independent Lens show with the "Chicago 10" mockumentary?

People DON'T want to return to the '60's radicalism and are going to have pause when it comes to electing a black JFK wannabe who will tax them into poverty.

We have to keep the push on to make sure EVERY one in our households comes out to vote. While our parents were fighting FOR this great country, Obama's parents were smoking dope, going to marches and hanging out with subversives hoping to make US follow their idiotic lead.

They should move the celebration to soldier field and the burnham park area so they have a more contained and manageable area to handle.

However, every 4th of July there are at least a million people in grant park for the firework with minimal damage.

It can be done without a riot.

Stay away from the media, let the mob have them. If it is bad enough, they will roast Shortshanks and J-Fed and finally ask what the hell have you fools done with the CPD.

If you know people with a store in a danger zone, tell them to get the good stuff out before the riot. The police may not be there.

Don't get your picture on TV or in the papers you will be the bad police beating up the demonstrators.

Heard Obama is unable to produce his Birth Certificate, and is being investigated by private sources who state that they have proof that he [OBAMA] was not born in the United States, but actually born in Kenya. Obama apparently is claiming he was born in Hawaii, and is now on a mysterious trip to Hawaii, supposedly to visit his sick Grandmother, but didn't take his wife or Kids. What's up with this? Anybody have any further details? Something smells awfully fishy, as it usually does with Democrat/Liberal/socialist/commies..

This is only half true. You're correct..his mother was the dope smoker. Her "Baby-Daddy" had a little problem with the bottle and ended up killing himself in a DUI car accident after he abandoned Lil'Obama and went back to Kenya. This of course was also after he fathered two additional children with 2 different womens! This is all factual and can be verified in the book "Obama-Nation" by Corsi. It is a MUST READ!

Socialism at its finest can be exemplified by chicagos current vision...this will be now tested in our entire country!

Example: Clinton stated that every american should be able to own a home..thus real estate laws were relaxed and mortgages were given to people that shouldnt have gotten them...

The price of housing was rising so fast that banks figured it was a no brainer lending to anyone, since they could only win if they took over a foreclosure..never thinking the opposite could occur! And housing prices could fall.Thus causing todays crisis!

Chicago comes up with mixed income socialism housing, and lets the thug who has never had a job get the same condo at section 8, as the guy busting his ass 60 hours a week to pay his housing costs...This is socialism!!!

you will be rewarding the lazy piece of sh#t who sits on his ass drinking a 40 ounce and scamming the system, and taking away from anyone really producing for our country...

Now you take a police supt. and put him in way over his head...have him strip half the police powers...make the police very wary if they mistakenly cross the line, trying to lock up the sh#thead who has every law writen for him..he will GET FIRED!

Now you have rising crime after years of decline,rising Homicides after years of decline,and less revenue generated by the police, cause why should they go the extra mile for this regime!

Now you take A President!
Way over his head...gonna take away the powers of the working american, and give to the less fortunate/lazy ass. Gonna reward the non worker, and take from the person who truly made success of himself..

And I'm not talking about actors, they support Obama cause they dont really work, not for the wages they earn, let these liberal clowns donate their money to the lazy ass, instead of buying 8 houses for themselves, yeah they fell better about their thievery wages by crying for the poor...Hypocrits....

4 years from now you will see the effects of socialism, and you will not be impressed, we will no longer be the leader of the free world, trust me,

You're missing the obvious.


The filthy rich live for the days the market is down.


What did the infamous Mister Potter do, when the market crashed and the banks were failing?

He bought up all the dirt cheap bargains he could.


When you play with fire, you're bound to get burned.


Treating any market commodity as if you're a side better at the craps table is the cause of many a bad investment.


Stock ownership is a responsibility, not a roll of the dice.

When it's treated as merely an act of gambling, there will always be a few winners and many losers.


Greed is only good for those who start with a huge stake to play with, everybody else ends up being the source of that stake.

The banking deregulation mess started under idiot Carter's presidency and was greatly expanded under Reagan and King George I before advancing at light speed with Bubba and culminating with a bang under the inspired stewardship of our good friend King George II.

All these fools had a hand in destroying banking safeguards implemented by Roosevelt during the 1930's to protect our country's financial standing and all paved the way for greed. Ending on an upbeat note, it took the DJIA almost 25 years to recover from the '29 Crash.

No genius. Think what General Patton would have done:
1. Michigan Ave contains the crowd on the west.
2. Roosevelt on the south flank because it will be fortified to protect the runt's hood.
3. Randolph on the north flank
4. The lake on the east does not have to be protected thus saving manpower.

5. CTA should stage their buses on LSD to expedite the removal of the crowds. Don't let them move west!!

In case of insurgency, a westernly gauntlet will allow egress for the dignitaries and essential personnel.
And the insurgents can then be driven to and contained at the lake front. The marine unit can hose down the trouble makers to diminish the aggression. In 30 degree weather and wet, they will just waddle unto the CTA buses for removal.
