Startling Admission Part II

  • If Chicago lacks the police manpower to secure the NATO summit and a protest march to McCormick Place on the same day, City Hall has no business hosting world leaders, protesters argued Thursday.

    After rejecting a city counterproposal they claim would have “ghettoized” their parade route to streets with “virtually no public visibility,” protesters formally appealed the decision by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration to reject a permit for a parade virtually identical to the one City Hall approved in January.

Odds have dropped from 25-1 to around 10-1 that the city will somehow manage to dodge the NATO summit before the first week of April.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Ruger Temporarily Suspends Acceptance of New Orders

SOUTHPORT, CT --Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:

• The Company's Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms.

• Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms.

• Despite the Company's continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

• The Company expects to resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May 2012.

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

Yikes ONE MILLION ORDERS!?

Well what about Smith & Wesson you ask?

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

The company, which competes with Sturm Ruger & Co Inc (RGR.N), Glock Inc and Taurus, reported a 60 percent surge in firearm backlog in the third quarter.

"Such a substantial increase in order backlog is a positive leading indicator for near term sales momentum, as the company should fulfill much of this order flow within the next 2-3 quarters," Wedbush analyst Rommel Dionisio wrote in a note.

***

"Rising market share in handguns, along with robust performance in the tactical rifle business, helped drive impressive 24 percent top line growth," analyst Dionisio added.

The rest of the nation is arming up for some reason and ol' Rahm is creating hoops that place Illinois citizens at risk while trying to cash in on a crisis.

A Chicago delegation is now in Brussels selling this load of crap, maybe the Euros found the truth and are backing out.

So maybe the Chicago delegation went with bags of cash and other perks, like college scholarships like they did for the 'Limpics.

Be a shame if this crisis went to waste Rahm.

Hmmmmmmm.....is it just me or does someone think this sounds like a few years back when J-Fled & Co moved the St. Jude parade from Michigan Ave to McFetridge Dr. Nobody even notices the St. Jude march anymore.

Since we're so hated among the populace, one wonders why we even bother to express our rememberances to our fallen.

God Bless the CPD!

The "chicago deligation" grossly underestimates the wildly unpopular ex-mayor and the even more repulsive current mayor. Europeans also NEVER come here for the FOOD ......NEVER. They think and know that there food is superior to ours. You might as well offer them a heart attack. They laugh at USA 's history as well. Most of their houses as well as churches predate the entire " short history" of the USA. In short Chicago is where they will come to buy jeans and watches and clothes. A shirt made by a well known brand can cost well over 100 euros in Brussells. They will come to shop if they can get out of their hotel rooms without getting killed. Did I mention that they are deathly afraid of black people too. Wait till they see the flash mobs. Yep...Chicago is a world class ....JOKE.

I'll take that bet. Governor Queef was just overseas trying to sell his sinking ship to the military forces of NATO.

They're coming if we're ready or not because Rahm's ego is too big not to take this on no matter how many cops get hurt.

Remember, we're just pawns to him and there are acceptable casualty rates in his raccoon eyes.

If you had attended the last FOP General Meeting on Tuesday, March 20 you would have your very own list of the number of sworn officers currently employed by the CPD, each and every one listed bt title code.

You wouldn't have to go around bleating like a little bitch for an "honest reporter" or a Playboy expose' of anything other than some 19 year old's pubic hair.

Stop being an idiot, the numbers you so desperately seek are available in a Top Secret ultra classified hiding place: namely an FOP General Meeting. Go to one sometime, you might learn something.

Hey come on now, this is not in keeping with the spirit of CAPS, "Together We Can."

I recall my first CAPS class about 17 years ago. The room burst out in laughter as the department shills used for "instructors" gave us the lowdown on the "new" way of doing things called CAPS.

No, really, they told us, this is the wave of the future, get with it we were told. Somehow I felt safer out there when the official murder count was up around 700 - 900.

Because its the Right thing to do! I could care less if we are so hated among the populace. I've got 15 years on, and I still tear up every time I walk by the Gold Star families platform and all the pictures of our fallen. I could also care less if we are seen by the public. Our families that come out to see us is plenty for me!

First off, St. Jude is a march not a parade. What happened on Western Ave. 2 weeks ago was a parade. Second, Cline moved the march so that it was co-located with the memorial site. I didn't like them moving it and I didn't like Weis, but you don't need to make stuff up. Of course there's always the chance you just didn't know what you were writing about.

So the protesters said the new route would "ghettoize" them? That sounds pretty racist to me. I don't think the city should support an obviously racist movement like that by approving thier parade permits. That would demean and marginalize the people living in those neighborhoods to be referred to as "the ghetto". They are all just about to turn thier lives around. And think of the apple picking that could be done amongst the occupy crowd! Those utes deserve those phones as payment for being oppressed by society all thier lives.

The part I find interesting occurs at around 11 mins / 45 seconds, where McCarthy says unequvic-unequicably that the denied permit related to police unpreparedness did not come from the CPD and is "factually incorrect".
Yet, in the denial letter, aren't the cc'd Commanders on the CPD? http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/clout/chi-120319occupy-permit-denied-html,0,6885113.htmlpage

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

"I" before "E" EXCEPT after "C" OR WHEN the word sounds like it has an "A" as in neighbor or weigh my friend.

Anyways...

It's also pretty racist of the mayor when you think about it.

To admit that you don't have the manpower to support a march but if you march right over here in this neighborhood we don't give a shit what happens in THAT neighborhood and we're okay with that. Whatever happens happens if you march over there.

Look, as long as the NATO dignitaries can have their shindig and leave town without incident the summit will be a success in the mayors mind.

Screw the people of Chicago, our families, friends, neighbors. and the people that are in the parade, that paid for a permit and that are therefore entitled to protection and support from the city. Protect the dignitaries at all cost. The people of the city are just the mayors chattel. The dignitaries have MONEY!

That's how I interpret the message the mayor is sending.

This city will be gridlocked. He's putting us all in harms way with this mess.

If we want to rip on the FOP, we do it front and center on the main page, like our Aguilar letter the other day. And any comment by us here has the SCC Flag posted by it.

We also know that since we aren't publishing your comment, you're going to take that as proof positive of a negative, therefore the original response must be us, which it wasn't.

You know who hates cameras as much as many of the officers in the CPD?

The violent black block protestors.

By the State of Illinois voting down the law that would of reversed the restriction of audio recording of police while doing their duties in public the Illinois lawmakers may have placed the city in greater danger rather than making it safer.

Hell the mayor should be handing out Iphone cameras for the NATO event unless of course he intends to have his people violate the laws and civil rights.

This creation of gag orders and secrete police internal intimidation of it's own only plays against the trust of the public.

Like the restrictive gun laws. The stupidity that has Illinois sticking out of the other 49 states like a sore thumb is jaw dropping. What else would you expect though from the number one state in political corruption.

Never did see the reason for NATO to come here for a conference.

The NATO countries are mostly in Europe. NATO is HQ'ed in Belgium.

So why fly 8-10 hours, 2 day conference, 8-10 flight home?

When you add in time differences and jet-lag, what is the point of coming here for such a short time?

Unless they are like all conventioneers:
1: to get away from the wife/kids for a while
2: Chase some strange tail.

Maybe we will get a good show: The NATO visitors will get wilded on Michigan Ave.
