Who's Bankrolling This?

  • Unrolling a 10-foot-long petition with more than 1,300 signatures, parents Wednesday demanded that a neighborhood high school be placed inside half-empty Carver Military Academy.

    Activists from the Altgeld Gardens public-housing development went to the Chicago School Board's monthly meeting with a name for the proposed school -- the Hazel Johnson School for Environmental Justice -- and a flashy 38-page color brochure outlining its goals.

A 38-page color brochure? Hmmm:
  • Activists demanded the board hold an "emergency meeting" so the proposed school could open before the start of the second semester.

    "Will you schedule an emergency meeting in Altgeld, or do you want the blood of another child on your hands?" asked University of Illinois at Chicago Professor Rico Gutstein.

Aha, it suddenly becomes a bit clearer.

Here's a hint - maybe it isn't the schools, the police and the teachers that are the sticky wicket here. Maybe it's what is being sent to the schools that is the problem? And those who exploit the situation for their own ends.

Being a connoisseur of gourmet peanut butter, I say the high school should remain named after George Washington Carver. The brother thought up over a hundred uses for the peanut. Just phase out the military bullshit.

Hazel Johnson was a mentor for the then Altgeld Gardens activist now "the Messiah".

Since John Peter ALTGELD was a now irrelevant 19th Century Illinois governor, just rename this African-American enclave to "Hazel's Gardens". Don't even think about "Alligator Gardens"--too declasse.

With all due respect to Mrs. Hazel Johnson, don't fuck with my peanut butter! I highly recommend Skippy (chunky style).

YOU CAN'T SAY THAT !
You have been denied the language to describe the problem and must leave it up to the experts to determin.
That is why idiots today describe their "feelings" while thought is left to 'EXPERTS".

Just an FYI, Rico Gutstein is a UIC professor and disciple of Billy Ayers. Rico is math teacher who claims to promote social justice and political consciousness (read indoctrination) through math instruction. You can view him on the UIC Ed. Dept. website. Draw you own conclusions.

Didn't the POTUS' better half hold an influential position (albeit a totally non-essential, custom-tailored-specifically-for-her position) at said University?

Maybe some pissed-off aldercreatures are behind this latest facade of caring about their constituents?

Regardless of who spearheaded this latest ghetto movement, one thing's almost certain...these useless, non-contributing societal leeches demanding yet ANOTHER free, unearned, taxpayer-funded amenity WILL GET IT. The squeaky wheel always gets the grease. And you and I will pay for it. Pay for it while our kids can't use public schooling in most neighborhoods for obvious reasons. Pay for it while our streets are neglected season after season, while the city paves new streets and pours new curbs and gutters on ghetto blocks with 4 houses. Pay for it while illegal aliens get free, preferential medical treatment. Pay for it while the aldercreatures vote themselves yet another raise while we go another half a year (or more) without a contract.

And, yes, all this will take place while the one constant element that's responsible for all the mayhem and misery will be further coddled by those who exploit them for their own political agendas.

(OT) IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you had Unicare and are waiting for the new Blue Cross Access HMO the city has done nothing to send out the information,so we are covered by Jan 1,2010,so after 31DEC09 NO COVERAGE! call benefits management office 312-747-8660, then call blue cross 1-800-730-8504,and ask why no coverage! I called today and was told the city never sent info,benefits office stated "You can just have the doctor call Blue Cross and they will verify"! If they have no info how do you verify??

The 2000 short Spartan army says:

They should just send them straight to real military. They are all 18 year old freshmen. They like to go to war so it is perfect. These are the kind of kids that need their face in the dirt and someone screaming at them. A normal school teacher or CAPS officer will not accomplish such discipline.
It will be hard to convince those activists. They think that one day we will never have a war again and all thee students will be big scholars. Being an optimist, I would say take the one kid in the group of hundreds that does not have a CB#(has not been arrested for yall citizens) and send him/her (probably her) to that school.

Before it was a 'Military Academy' those mutts did not want to attend that school in their own backyard.

So why now? You know it's all B.S., they still won't attend!

i ''demand'' that all the bullshitters and freeloaders in this city start paying their fair share of taxes. i dont have any kids in CPS and ive never used stroger/obama care hospital. i also dont call the police every 5 minutes to settle silly bullshit. this is what we pay for? being politically correct is thisclose to flushing this city/state and country down the toilet.isnt it funny how the people that pay the most taxes get the least service? this is what happens when there s no difference between rewarding good vs. bad behavior. sorry... that wasnt PC.

...1300 that can sign their name? I've seen some reports written by 005 coppers that might have difficulty with their names.

No offense, but A LOT of people really judge you by your ability to spell and compose a complete sentence that conveys your message.

Re: Public Housing

Perhaps, it's time for intelligent voting seminars, where people are taught how voting today impacts tomorrow and the future. In other words, don't show party, ethnic, race, etc. loyalty to any political party. :)

People on the public dole, and have been for generations, who don't contribute shit to society have no place demanding anything.

They should be grateful for what they get from the rest of us via the government.

They claim to be taxpayers and pay our salary, but the only taxes they seem to pay are sales taxes.


I wish I got free food, free rent, LINK cards from the government for not doing shit.
