How About Us?

  • Federal agents raided government offices in south suburban Crestwood on Wednesday, less than two weeks after a Tribune investigation revealed the village had secretly pumped drinking water from a polluted well for more than two decades.

    Acting on a search warrant obtained by U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald's office, investigators from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency spent most of the day collecting records from Crestwood Village Hall, the public works department and the Police Department. They carted away several boxes of documents and took computers for further review.
The Tribune reports a contaminated well might be poisoning an entire town, the feds are there in under 14 days, grabbing boxes of records, seizing critical information, making a case to put a bunch of people behind bars for years.

Last week, Shortshanks celebrated 20 years of looting not only the City of Chicago, but the County of Cook and the State of Illinois of billions in crooked contracts, shady land deals, land give-aways, questionable campaign contributions, pension grabs, rigged voting, the list is damn near endless, and for 20 years, the US Attorney's Office can't be bothered to protect 2.8 million city residents, 8 million county dwellers and 12+ million Illinoisans.

Maybe enforcement is based on percentage of tax paying individuals?

UPDATE: Population corrected. Our bad.

Bad news. I don't think Shortshanks is going to get indicted by the feds. Remember a few years back when George W. Bush attended Mayor Daley's birthday bash? It was after Sorich got whacked by the feds. Bush came into town and he and Daley were sobserved laughing together and slapping each other on the back.

By the way, check out this: http://www.mountainofevidence.com/2009/01/chicago-audit-chief-mysteriously-fired.html

Here's a quote from the site:" It has become rather obvious that Daley has been off limits to Patrick Fitzgerald since the Bush birthday party in Chicago on the very day that the Sorich conviction was announced. Although President elect Obama and Senator Dick Durbin have both stated that they want to keep Fitzgerald in Chicago I do not see it happening. I anticipate that Dick Durbin will get a telephone call from Daley telling him the name of new Federal Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois who will naturally be a village idiot with a law degree that will naturally not see Dirty Dick Daley Mob corruption".

SCC, it looks like this guy has good stuff he's writing about.
Why isn't Lil' Pammy Zekman or Chuck Goudie reporting this?

Come On SCC, you must know by now that King Daley is untouchable. People around him will go to jail, but not him or anyone in his f--ing family. It's the same old case were all the dope dealers get nailed, except the big guy. Why you may ask because he gives the authorities the others to survive and eliminate the competitors. The same is true with King Daley. Fitzpatrick will keep nailing people to make his record look good, but never King Daley. Look at the former USA Scott Lazar, never could find any crooks related to Daley. As a matter of fact terminated the "Silver Shovel" case prematurely before Bill Daley became involved in the snare.

Yesterday CeaseFire held a gathered on the side of a gang infested drug house on the corner of Cortland and St. Louis. A gang killing/shooting occurred there last Sunday. Police protection was persent for over an hour.

While walking to Weegee's Lounge, full scale gang chaos broke out in the streets. Gang members were chased by CPD Officers, sometimes with multiple officers jumping out of CPD SUV's

For the next three hours gang members boldy roamed the immediate streets. CPD seemed to to a good job suppressing such a large group of gang members.
Its not my intention to say that some how Ceasfire caused this, but I would sure like to hear their side because that's how it appeared. I have never witnesses any thing like this.

71% of a 28% registered voter turnout equates to about 40 % of the citys patronage army and their families.
Include the private employed "donators" and their beholders and you have what it takes to win.

Ms. Rand was an egomaniac.

A very intelligent egomaniac, but an egomaniac nonetheless.

While there are many endeavors which allow for absolutes, politics is not one of them, since politics requires, by it's very nature, the pleasing of as many different, and conflicting/competing interests as necessary to remain an employed politician.

In Ms. Rand's fictional world, only the best and brightest would deserve to survive, with the obvious implication being that those best and brightest have, by the fact of them being the 'best and brightest', the absolute right to eliminate any and all others whom they find to be of less use to the end goal of those 'best and brightest', that end goal being to do whatever they please, free from any interference from those deemed 'less worthy'.


What Ms. Rand failed to credit is the fact that those she deemed to be not 'the best and the brightest' still, somehow, seemed to maintain much more control over their environments than those whom she considered to be truly deserving of wielding that control.


The perfect Ayn Rand world would consist of all Chiefs and no Indians.

Now that would be a place sometimes called hell.

71% of those who bothered to vote in that election.

Which was less than 30% of those who were registered to vote at that time.

Which is roughly half of all residents of this city who meet the qualifications needed to register, those being:

1. proof of residency

2. proof of age (18 or older)

3. proof of US citizenship


So, that 71% victory is really 35.5% of those registered, and approximately 17.75% of all possible voters.

1 out of 3 registered voters voted for daley.

Less than 1 out of 5 citizens qualified to vote voted for daley.


Unless one takes the not voting of those registered voters, and the not registering of those who've abandoned their duty, as citizens, to vote, as an indication of their satisfaction in daley's administration, that 71% 'victory' is hardly an indication of citywide approval. Not even close.

And that's not taking into consideration the vote splitting of the two shill candidates that 'challenged' him.


If only the taxpaying, hard working residents of our city realized how vulnerable the midget is, and that all that is needed is for those same hard working, taxpaying citizens to register and vote, as one voice, for one specific challenger to daley's despotic rule.


If only.......

Immigration march: Swine flu scare may reduce immigration rally turnoutCity officials say demonstration poses no health risk

By Antonio Olivo | Tribune reporter
April 30, 2009

As it has with many public events in Chicago this week, the specter of the swine flu outbreak promises to hover over a planned Immigration march Friday, though city officials said Wednesday that there are no health risks involved in participating in the open-air demonstration.

The event is set to begin at 10 a.m. Friday in Union Park on the Near West Side, ending in the early afternoon at Federal Plaza in the Loop.http://www.chicagotribune.com/news
/local/chi-immigration-marchapr
30,0,6099796.story

Not only is "participating in the open-air demonstration" safe, but we're sure that traveling to and from the march in packed-tight automobiles, buses, and trains will be OK too. The City of Chicago is never wrong...

You have to be a citizen to legally vote.

You have to register to prove that you meet the three requirements to vote.

That doesn't mean that those responsible for ensuring that only citizens who meet those three requirements are actually meeting their legal responsibilities.

And, since there appears to be no criminal or civil sanctions for those who fail to meet these responsibilities, or even for those who deliberately, but discretely, ignore these responsibilities, what you get is the equivalent of the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy.
