Shortshanks Loses His Mind

Strap in, because if you don't tie yourself to your chair, you'll probably run screaming from the room as Shortshanks butchers the English language and runs with some bizarre rendering of history that even a conspiracy theorist would have trouble following without killing himself:
Wow. Just wow. And this guy is in charge of the third largest city in America? In fact, he's scheduled to get $50,000 per speech at some point following his retirement. We just love this part of the speech where he's talking about the CHA high rises (starting around 2:10 and running for a few minutes):
  • ....you have to be poor to live in there, so if you're working, you automatically had to leave. So if you decide to get a job you had to be leave. So what happened? They didn’t get jobs…if you work, you have to leave your housing...
  • ...if you have any public benefits, and you get married, oh that’s a no-no, so single mother shows up....it was government policies...
We don't recall any government policies like those Daley claims existed. We do recall studies that show if you reward bad behavior, you get more of it. That seems to be the Machine's method of business in any event. How the hell did this idiot keep winning elections for so many years?

I really frown on second-guessing officers during the course of their duties, but I feel I must make an exception in this case. The mayor's security detail really dropped the ball and placed the safety of our leader in jeopardy. CLEARLY Mayor Daley was suffering from a seizure during this press conference. Those officers assigned should have rushed the podium and quickly transported their protectee to the nearest medical facility for treatment. My prayers for a quick and speedy recovery. God bless.

SCC, I had to click away from YouTube after a minute, I couldn't take the stammering prick any more! I have to agree with you, I can't imagine who or what group(s) would be willing to pay $50 G's to hear that man murder the English language (I assume he'll tour an elite college circuit, U of C, NU, Harvard, possibly Yale, Dartmouth, etc.) . I wouldn't even want to see what he's going to tell the nation's 'best & brightest' if it's captured on dvd. It will suck, just like his 20+ years of running this city, along with a formerly great police dept. into the ground.

Speaking of jagoofs (Daley) Rahm is sending his SEIU troops and pac money into the 41st ward to take it back from the republicans . None of the SEIU people live on the nw side , he is pissed off that 41 was the only ward on the north and northwest side that Rahm lost . He will probably be sending the same to 45 , where Lt Garrido is in a runoff , also a republican . Lets send a big fuck you to Rahm ,keep 41 republican and add 45 , making 2 republican wards .

Yeah government works if you politically connected and the mayors friend.

I'll tell you what though. The city that works ain't working for me that's for sure. Their various departments ..heh forget it..

The mayor bragged about why people came to Chicago in the past -- opportunity,

Guess what?

People are leaving because the opportunity that he preaches has done come and gone. The man is living in another world. A false reality compared to the middle class here.

You know what opportunity is left?

Sanctuary for the illegal immigrants and that's about it.

Yeah the city that works, works for the politically connected.

In the seventies, my dad owned a three-flat that had two 'welfare families' (that's what they were called then) in them.

I do remember the women saying they had to make sure their men weren't around when the welfare investigators came by. The theory was, he was an income and that income pushed the household over the financial cutoffs to get the government check.

But, for clarity, that was NOT how the projects went into play. Cabrini started as a racially mixed, jumping-off point for families to get their feet on the ground and MOVE ON. (It was never intended to become a multi-decade, multi-generation HANDOUT for any family.)

I highly doubt old man Daley never wanted them, though. Can't imagine him turning down bagloads of free Federal cash. Richie wants to rewrite the family history, I guess.

I was driving when I heard this rant of Daley's, and WBBM played quite a bit of it. By the time the story ended, I nearly cracked up the car, I was laughing so hard. I wonder if they're going to have to institutionalize Daley on 16 May, when he realizes IT'S OVER. Really, truly over. He's already at the brink.

There are two very important Illinois house bills that might pass by summer. This would be very bad for all retired LE in Illinois.

HB3375
Amends the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that if a member or participant of a retirement system or pension fund subject to this Code is receiving a retirement annuity or retirement pension under that system or fund and becomes a member or participant of any other system or fund created by this Code and is employed on a full-time basis, then the person's retirement annuity or retirement pension under that system or fund shall be suspended during that employment. Effective July 1, 2011.

HB3116
Creates the Public Pension Abuse Abatement Act. Authorizes and directs the Governor to execute a compact on behalf of the State with any other state to end abuse of public pension programs. Provides that the compacting states shall agree that no governmental employer under the jurisdiction of any state shall pay wages or salary to any public pension fund annuitant unless that annuitant elects to suspend his or her pension for the duration of his or her employment. Sets out provisions of the compact concerning definitions, the effective date, and construction and severability. Effective immediately.

I hate to disagree with you but those policies did exist. I remember my grandparents and parents discussing them and I went to high school with black girls explained the housing system to me all the time. Initially they had intact families. It was safe. You had to meet certain standards to live there. There are documentaries out there about the birth of the Chicago projects. But then the policies changed. If you were productive, you were out. If you had a husband you were gone. What is fucked up about this video is that his father created the mess by not responding to the social issues their policies created or anticipating that people who get free shit want to keep getting free shit, even if it means becoming a complete bust out.

The village idiot was hiding in his usual spot, the communal privy hole. He stank of shit, insanity and lies. He giggled as he clutched a fistful of smoldering twigs to burn the asses of all who dared to squat and block his view.

The people having lost their fucking minds, went to where the idiot was contentedly stinking, giggling and waving burning twigs under naive and unsuspecting asses.

The people said, "We need you to be our leader."

The idiot stank, giggled, babbled incoherently and blinked, winked, spasmed and stammered his agreement that he should in fact be mayor.

The people shouted "hooray" and dragged the idiot from his hiding place.

The people marched around the village shouting "hail the idiot" why carrying him on their shoulders.

This went on for a generation...

The village watchmen were aghast and horrified. Their attempts at warning the people were rebuffed.

"Silence! You churls and non-believers!" The people shouted...

Then slowly... The "magick odours" and "enchanting musicks" the idiot expelled from his anus as the people giddily carried him aloft for a generation, began to lose their hypnotic powers.

The people began to realize they've been royally shat upon and robbed of any illusion hope, safety and security by the idiot and his faithful enablers.

The idiot counts the people's treasure as his very own and giggles.

The people, realizing they've been had, have singled out, condemned and vilified the village watchmen as the cause of all that ails the village.

The watchmen rightfully withdraw which angered the villagers even more. "How dare you try to protect yourselves in the face of our misplaced anger! Come forth so that we may punish you because we didn't have the courage to punish our beloved idiot. Stop your complaining and trying to get away from us! We're your masters!"

The idiot and his enablers have won.

========================

We think this kind of sums up the current state of things in Chicago.

The people have cast their lot with a thieving, stunted, quasi-human for a generation.

Most of us concluded that the very citizens themselves (and some of our purported brethren as well. You knee-walkers know damned well who you are) doomed this city when they kept re-electing this idiot... Especially after his gift of a second term.

Shortshanks looses HIS mind, SCC?

In my opinion, this is the beginning of a process. Daley is attempting to slant history. He is attempting to portray himself, and his father, as champions in the struggle for the common man. These people were never "WareHoused" for the Democratic Vote. It was the Federal Governments Idea. The Daley's were victims of the evil federal government. Same as the poor souls, who were forced to accept government handouts.
Bottom Line,Is This; He will spoon feed this to the masses that pay to hear him speak, and it will go down in history as fact.

"Libya is justifiably angry at Italy for siding with the West and not honoring its cozy friendship. Retaliation by mass illegal immigration and the planting of dangerous characters will hurt the country more than any military strike. The boats don’t go to Malta or Crete with the same regularity they head to Italy because those countries simply send them back. But Italy rarely does, even though they cannot maintain an acceptable ethical standard of humanitarian treatment of the would-be refugees due to the sheer inundation."

It's not like he's going to go fishing, or work on the garden -- his whole world is a suit and a briefcase and a limousine, telephones and power.

Some much richer people than him jumped in front of trains or shot themselves or slit their wrists when the economy went under; I guess they couldn't bear the thought of having only one or two private jets. Let's see how long this one holds out.

There are probably standing orders to keep all the mirrors in the house covered; if he ever gets a look at one, and realizes that there's nothing to him, well, that might be it.

Oh -- two stories on Channel 9 tonight --

The federal government is providing $685 million for a "high-speed" rail link to St. Louis, of all places. It'll be good for a maximum 110 MPH -- about as fast as the Hiawathas and 400s ran up to Milwaukee behind steam locomotives in 1940.

They showed the nose of an Amtrak locomotive that could be as much as 15 years old by now.

The blonde in the crowd at the rail yard was Jan Schakowsky.

Second story -- while this link-to-nothing is pushed, 2000 bridges across the state are considered to be "structurally deficient."

First things first.

OT -
Pension Board Legislation and Morale



On 16 March 2011, our Bill # SB1874 was scheduled to be heard before the Senate Pension Committee in Springfield. This bill, if passed, would allow for at large elections for the Chicago Police Pension Board. The bill would pool the three representatives of active rank Lt's and Above, Sgt's, and those below the rank of Sgt. Retirees would retain their one representative. It would also require that all three of these elected members would be assigned full time to the Pension Board.



Opponents of this legislation were all Sergeants and above including: Sgt's Association; Lt's Association; Captain's Association; Latin American Police Association representative; PBPA; and a host of others. As this issue has been introduced before and was opposed then by some of the same individuals, their opposition was expected. What was not expected was the level of indignation towards those of us below the rank of Sergeant by their "chosen spokesperson" Capt. Mark Buslick. He began with a several minute long oration about himself and his educational background which caused many in the room to wonder where he was going with that. They didn't have to wonder long as Buslick then went into a tirade about the lack of necessary intellect of those whom the FOP represents. Buslick felt that those who attain rank in the Police Department are the ones who are qualified to serve on the Pension Board. Buslick extolled on the vast number of reasons for opposing this bill and when asked by a Senate Member of the Committee to give him two examples he said that if a captain were to appear before the Pension Board seeking a disability pension and there was a patrolman on the Board who had a grudge against him, the Patrolman would vote against the Captains disability. When asked for a second reason by the same Senator, Buslick could not think of another at that time.



So the affect of his testimony was that even though the ranks of Lieutenant and above who number about 260 have one vote on the Board, and the Sergeants who number about 1200 and have one vote on the Board, and all those below the rank of Sergeant who number about 11,200 and have one vote on the Board is fair because they are smart enough to run the Board as it needs to be and the FOP shouldn't be asking for the change because it may impact on those of superior intellect.



We would like to thank Buslick for his testimony because although we did not feel as though we had the votes to get this out of Committee, the Committee Members recognized the virus that was his testimony.



One can be sure that his testimony as to the lack of intellect in non-white shirts is not adopted by the vast majority, but the fact that these organizations used this person as the channel for their opposition is inexcusable and they should be embarrassed. As much of our morale problem in this Department is often attributed to differences between management and non-management personnel, the vile testimony of this one person is proof that we have a long way to go in addressing that problem.

Well, let's just ask why he served as an enlisted guy in the armed forces. He had to. He dropped out of West Point and owed the service. He got in there because of connections despite his smashing a kid's head in with a baseball bat at daddy's place in Michigan when he was in high school.

What Richie says about public housing and the men having to leave to keep the welfare coming in is true. That is what many call the worst public policy decision in American history. It made the projects and Public Aid the Plantation of the 20th Century.

As for the great migration from the south, most were blacks coming up from the south because the northern states had more generous welfare benefits and the US Supreme Court ruled that waiting periods for welfare were unconstitutional.

In many southern states if one went to the welfare office, their assistance was a bust ticket (one way) north.

The projects were welcomed by politicians both black and white. The white politicians liked them because all the fed money that was available to them to skimmed from and for their votes. The projects kept them out of the white neighborhoods. The black politicians like the projects because it concentrated their voting block.

Single women losing their benefit if they married was spread all through the black community and it was more or less partially true. The male was probably unreliable or abusive or both and the relationship was on and off, so the female remained single and kept her benefits.

As for jobs, the temporary agency I worked for shortly sent me to a job that was a grave yard for women on welfare and hoodlums were everywhere calling everybody welfare thieves, the people? were assaulting each other, physically and sexually for jobs that paid minimum wage. I called the agency I worked or and told them to take me off this assignment and I am never returning.

3/22/2011 01:01:00 AM

-----------------------------------

The SEIU already sent attack mailings directed at Lt. John Garrido (45). However, they are acting independently of Emanuel. A CFL political director informed me that they want 30 dependable votes for their agenda to fight Emanuel if necessary.

The SEIU and CFL sent out troops last weekend to help Garrido's opponent, John Arena. Arena stated on his website that he had 70 of these traveling hack henchmen, oh excuse me ward supporters, passing out flyers last weekend.

John Garrido does not have the funds to counteract these vicious PAC attacks with multiple mailings. If anyone has time or money to donate to his campaign, it would be greatly appreciated. Volunteers are needed to work precincts and telephones. Precinct workers are requested to come to John's campaign office at 10:00 am on Saturdays. John is polling well, but the race is likely to be close depending on turnout. If you have friends or family in the 45th Ward, encourage them to get out and vote for John Garrido.

As a Sgt. I say your right that the LT. is an pompus a-hole if your account is factual. However I dont feel that the FOP would have my best intrest in negotiations in regards to squat if given the oppurtunity to represent me. (shit, they dont even represent you) Maybe you should lobby for another vote on the pension board and leave mine alone. FOP wants the vote from the SGT, LT, and CPT ranks is a pure power grab.
But as I said, you could easily be offended by the Lt. if your facts are correct. I dont feel smarter or better than anyone else. But if your telling the truth the Lt. should apologize or better explain himself.

What is wrong with this? This is to prevent one person who retires from this job from collecting a pension and then jumping to another job with a similiar pension system and getting paid for the both at the same time...I see nothing wrong with that. It is the first step into getting rid of multiple government pensions. If you get two government pensions one of them should be military, otherwise you get only one. Or were you planning on going to the county and getting a fat check from them after you retire while collecting from here?

The Twin Cities 400 was the one that went all the way through to Minneapolis. There were a bunch of others, including the Shoreland 400 that stopped in Milwaukee on its way to Green Bay.

The 400 steam locomotives were equipped with air horns and a big Mars-type light aimed upward at an angle, so you could see the thing coming at a distance. Used to go through Wilmette at that speed -- stand back!

The Hiawatha ran on the Milwaukee Road (Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific, bought out by the Soo Line which was then absorbed into Canadian Pacific, if I recall right.) Amtrak stil calls their Chicago-Milwaukee train the Hiawatha.

The Hiawathas were pulled by streamlined steam engines; one of them "threw a rod" -- the big connecting rod that went from the cylinder to the driving wheel came loose at one end and was flailing around -- going through Edgebrook about 103 MPH in the '40s; it tore up the grade crossing, damaged the station platform, and injured about four people on the ground, including one or two in a car waiting at the crossing. Of course this does major damage to the engine, too. Didn't happen often, but when it did...

Point being, though -- $685 million to get the speeds of the 1940s. Pat Quinn and all the rest standing there in the Amtrak yard with a bunch of charts and artist's conceptions set up on easels, like they were introducing space flight or something...

...while 2000 bridges rust and crack all over the state. Got to spend the taxpayers' money sensibly, especially in the middle of a depression...

(If you want to go back a little farther, New York Central's steam engine #999 broke the 100 MPH mark in a test on straight track in 1899, and that was with a fireman shoveling coal by hand. Used to be on display out in back of the Museum of Science and Industry.)
