Mayor on YouTube

What's up with this? SCC starts posting a few video submissions and suddenly Richie needs to have his own YouTube video channel to counter the blog?
  • Mayor Richard Daley on Monday joined the queen of England and the pope as influential leaders who have their own YouTube channels.

    [...] “This site is an opportunity to talk to residents directly,” he said, noting YouTube’s wide reach.

  • Asked whether the site would include videos that were critical of him, he responded, “We’ll see, I don’t know yet.”
We're going to go out on a limb here and say that the answer to that question is a big, fat "Hell, NO!" We'll also predict that there won't be any videos of him butchering the English language, his discovery of heretofore unknown versions of grammatical structure and him showing off his mad spelling skills (S-A-T-E, state)

A few readers have already pointed out that comments aren't allowed on the channel and video comments are posted only after screening. Which kind of makes sense seeing as what we have to go through on this end.

SCC you have a problem with comments being shown only after censoring??? you do it all the time! As a matter of fact, even the Sun Times blogs post immediately, which is more than I can say for you! I like this blog but arent your comments a bit of the pot calling the kettle black??? Just sayin!

Um...did you read the last paragraph?

A few readers have already pointed out that comments aren't allowed on the channel and video comments are posted only after screening. Which kind of makes sense seeing as what we have to go through on this end.

So we admit we monitor comments. We state we understand the mayor's YouTube policy. And you're going to take us to task for admitting what is public knowledge?

Want to run that by us again?

The mayor's YouTube site seems like the perfect place to submit video of the every day, and night, occurrences on the streets of our fair city.

Not that much of what really goes on will be posted on his site, but just to give the little bitch a preview of what will soon be posted on the real YouTube.

How the heck did shortshanks ever get through college, law school, and a bar exam? I'll bet there's an untold story there.....I would have thought that the whole system was set up to prevent a mumble-mouthed, English as a second language BUM like him from ever standing up in a court of law to say anything except as a defendant......

I agree, SCC. While the comments are enjoyable and informative, I do find myself censored by you on occasion. Seeing some of the absolute crap that you DO post, it amazes me that something of mine gets trashed.

I'm sure that you shitcan some pretty stupid and outrageous comments, but mine are more along the line of things you find objectionable, like anything that contradicts your gun philosophy. In fact, I can see the hair on your neck bristling right now and can hear you MFing me with your standard "It's my blog and it links to "right thinking" people and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, and if you don't like it, start your own blog ! ! !

Whatever! I'm just sayin that for someone who obviously loves to let the shit fly against almost anyone else, you're a bit thin skinned yourself when someone disagrees with you. That brings out the bully in you and you want to go home and take you ball (blog) with you.

I wouldn't call this censorship, but a necessary evil if you want to read whats really going on in Chicago over a whole bunch of spam blog posts from Prince Mobasa from Nigeria offering $6 million from his dead fathers estate, or how to make your love stick a big hit with the ladies.

from Chicagotribune.com:

No, fraud isn't 'just politics'

February 24, 2009
"These defendants were key players in a corrupt and far-reaching scheme. . . . The beating heart of this fraudulent scheme was the mayor's Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. . . . [T]he defendants themselves achieved a gain—job security for keeping the patronage machine running."

—U.S. Appellate Judge Ann Williams of Chicago, upholding convictions of Robert Sorich and three co-defendants, April 15, 2008.

The Supreme Court said Monday that it would not accept an appeal from Mayor Richard Daley's former patronage chief Robert Sorich and his co-defendants.

Monday's action (or rather, decisive inaction) by the Supreme Court will prompt uncomfortable talks between some ethics-challenged officials and their lawyers: Fitzgerald & Co. were spot-on when they argued in court that public corruption isn't "just politics."
---


When will it land, finally and at long last, at the doorstep of the chief puppet-master, the head scoundrel, the "Boss of Bosses," the guy nothing gets past, the Mayor of the City of Chicago?

On that day, policeman, fireman, would be job holders, those hoping to be promoted and others who have long been the victims of this corrupt thing we call Chicago City government will smile and rejoice in the hope that the scum who inhabit the halls of government here might finally be flushed out of public service.

The Levars, the Mells, the Stones, the Matlaks, the Laurinos, the Banks, the Beavers and the rest of you: Your Day is Coming!

The city wastes $1 Million a year on cable shows and he has chosen to subvert some of that money to you tube. $1 Million dollars equals approximately 20 jobs, can someone please lead a fight towards advertising for political gain on the publics dollar.

***************
Excuse me? SCC's gun philosophy is really the *only* gun philosophy there is that isn't hoplophobic and irrational, and remains true to the Constitution and the original spirit of the law. If he's censoring your demonization of inanimate objects incapable of thought, the blaming of metal for the actions of PEOPLE, and your (probable) belief that law-abiding citizens have the right to remain victims, I say SCC's good to go, and you're a cocksucker and part of the problem. GFY.

Off Topic - For the last two years, I have worked CTA Special Employment for 2 to 3 days a month. I know no one and I am no one to have gotten those days. My permission slips were filled out and approved so I got the days. These days have help me pay for my children's education and own a second car.

This month I (like everyone else) have been limited to 1 day of CTA Special Employment. I have these two questions for everyone. Where is the money I should have been making (2 to 3 days reduced to 1 day) going? Who decided that it's good for me to have my pay and time working as a police officer reduced?

Ans: Because you don't have to be a rocket scientist to get through college, law school, and a bar exam, although pretentious licensed attorneys would like you to think otherwise. Higher education is a business like any other and Chicago area law schools, perhaps with the exception of U of C and Northwestern, cater to mediocre students at best. High caliber and above average students are the exception and not the rule.

His Family had certain "influence$" at the schools he attended. Also friend$ that took the tests for him. Same friend$ wrote his papers.

This guy is bullheaded and can't see himself from other peoples perspectives. A normal person wonders how the people see him and takes note of his flaws and works on improving them. Not this nut, he thinks everyone else is wrong.

Why are we making such a big deal of this? He's going to stutter his way through three of these videos and find out they take too much time (with the reading and rereading). He'll say Fuck it and for the next four years those three will be the only one's out there.

DALEY: FEDS OVERLOOK STREET CRIME
February 24, 2009 8:53 PM

In a trademark rambling soliloquy, Mayor Richard Daley today accused federal authorities of often overlooking blatant drug dealing and gun trafficking.

___________________________________


Could it possibly be that Richie has our backs before J-Fed ?

Whoda thunk it ?

"How can [drug kingpins] accumulate money every week, every month, have three of four homes, drive the best cars, have the best nail shops, and a lot of other things, the best girls, all the jewelry and nobody says anything?" said Daley, his voice at times rising to a high-pitched squeal.

"But if someone takes $100, it could be a Chicago policeman or anybody else, the feds are right there knocking on your door," he added.

I'M SORRY ! DID HE JUST SHOW A SHRED OF EMPATHY FOR THE POLICE ???

HE MUST BE GETTING SOFT.
