Stuck with the Check

  • The cost of President Barack Obama's Election Day celebration in Grant Park totaled more than $1.7 million, and the city has yet to be paid.

    The Office of Budget and Management says the city is reaching out to the Democratic National Committee to get the money. A DNC spokesperson said the party is still looking at various costs and bills.

    In October, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said the cash-flush Obama campaign would reimburse the city for the total cost of the rally.

We think we've spotted the pattern!
  • Daley says the Obama campaign will pay for the rally - they don't
  • Daley says taxpayers won't be on the hook for $500 million in Olympic costs - they will
Whatever Shortshanks says, believe the opposite.

To believe anything Shortshanks says is just Silly, Silly, Silly................

Daley has added the Fire dept to his security detail !!

2 Lieutenants, armed with fire extinguishers are now following him. Daley refuses to wear fire retardent trousers. The CFD team has been assigned the radio I.D. "Liar, Liar" (as in "pants on fire".

I too, can also subscribe to such an existence - especially when it comes to this job. Examples:

- I will write a ton of parkers to generate revenue for the City

- I will write a ton of movers to generate revenue for the City

- I will do endless vehicle impounds, ANOV's and burglar alarms to generate revenue for the City

- I will be proactive

- I will give 110% in every aspect of police work that I encounter

- I will not blow-off hand-wavers

- I will not drive by the dudes that match the description of a burglary or robbery pattern crew

- I will not 19P every job I get (with the exception of a Domestic, of course)

- I will not ride jobs out to go and sit in the hole and read the paper, watch TV or make non-job -related phone calls

- I will not re-direct citizens involved in driveable traffic accidents to neighboring district desks (one of my FAVORITES)

- I will not have a few more beers while perusing this blog

The DNC WAS going to pay the tab until they started looking at the itemized billing:

Event costs................$850,000

Miscellaneous costs:
Chicago 2016 Fund Donation..$85,000
Chicago Water tax,5%........$85,000
Millennium park tax,5%......$85,000
Adopt-a-crooked Pol ........$85,000
Outfit surcharge,5%.........$85,000
Hired Truck tax,5%..........$85,000
Silver Shovel Allowance.....$85,000
Pay-to-Play State tax.......$85,000
Pay-to-Play County tax......$85,000
Pay-to-Play City tax........$85,000
___________________________________
Total bill...............$1,700,000

Lil' Richie and the Daley Crime Family thought the DNC would be an easy mark, but they forgot that the DNC and RNC were stealing money in Washington DC before he was even born !

But really, did anyone actually think the Messiah was going to pay this? Nothing is legit in this country. And now it's Chicago politics in Washington. The world will get a chance to see how it's done. Pathetic.

You All Complain and Rant About Our "Wonderful Mayor". What you say is all true. Problem is you will all line up to vote for him and his alderman when they come around and ring your doorbell.
O Yes You Will, and You Know It.
Why? Because you are afraid he will find out, and be mad at you.
Yes it's Sad but True.
With all our rage we are still just rats in a cage.

Do all the above and you will be rewarded?


Good Contract?
The media will hold officers in high regard?
The Mayor will be behind officers every step of the way?

Come on anything is possible!
