Bears Favored by 7.5

Well, last week we lost about 100.... "toothpicks" betting the spread.  The Lions scored late and covered.  This week, we're a bit wary of things.  Plus we're running low on toothpicks.

It, CAPS, was never alive as far as I'm concerned. I have over 20 yrs on and I have never seen such a group of people with no backbone as our current crop of supervisors. If you are lucky enough to find a old school supervisor with over 25 yrs on they know how to tell someone to go get lost. Not today. Even when you know its wrong they still tell you to do it. Well then the first line of my report is, I was ordered by bt.......Here is some advice. Dont worry about the cameras and do what is right.

In Charlotte last week, group of Panther fans accosted a wounded Marine (double leg amputee) and his family in a restaurant after the game. The restaurant and the coppers made the decision to defuse the situation by making the Marine and his family leave. The "crime"? They were wearing Cowboy's jerseys. Those hillbilly's are a class act.

Lucky not to lose today, but you know what they say... Good teams find a way to win the close games and beat the teams they are "supposed to" beat.

The hope here, of course, is for the Bears offense to get better as the season goes on and really hit their stride near a playoff run.

For their part, the defense is playing better than they did when they went to the Super Bowl in 2006. They were bailing out the offense back then, also, but THIS defense is doing many other things never before seen.

To the critics, I choose to see the glass as half full rather than half empty, and beating the spread means NOTHING to me, only winning the games.

Prescription for the future (before Game 1 in 2013):

Find a Left Tackle. This most likely means a free agent signed in the off season. I have read from those who follow such things that next years college draft has a very average group of LT's (unless, perhaps, a top underclassman enters the draft that is unknown at this time).

Draft a Center. Garza is not the answer. put him back at Guard and get a pure Center.

Find a REAL pass catching Tight End. We do not have one.

Find another back-up QB. Jason Campbell only signed a one year contract and is probably overpaid. Either re-sign him or check the scrap heap for an NFL type QB.

Don't know if he'd be inclined to do so, but I'd love to see Olin Kreutz as an O-Line coach. All I've EVER heard about him (besides him being a wild sob) is that he was a great player and motivator of his fellow linemen. They could certainly use some of that now.

amendment to the Illinois Constitution, Resolution #49 on 06 November2012
On 01 October 2012, our City Council conducted hearings regarding city pensions including the Police & Fire Pensions. John Gallagher, Executive Director of the Police Pension Fund took the stand along with others to answer questions from the aldermen.

Mr. Gallagher is remarkable advocate for his constituents -the active and retired members of the police department. It was recently announced that Mr. Gallagher will be leaving our Fund. I hope the new Executive Director has the same fire as Mr. Gallagher.

Below are some facts and myths debunked at the hearings:

Facts:•Our Pension is currently funded at approximately 35%.
•Approximately 11,800 sworn members are currently contributing to our pension fund.
•3,200 sworn members are 50 years old with 20 years seniority (27% of all sworn members).
•Approximately 55% of retirees continue to live and spend money in Chicago.
Myth:The city does not make their full payments to the pension fund.
Fact:The city has statutorily met all its payments to the pension fund.
Myth:The 2 times multiplier the city currently contributes to the pension is enough.
Fact:According to Executive Director Gallagher, he has repeatedly informed the city that the 2 times multiplier is NOT enough.
Myth:The pension fund is not hitting its mark on investments.
Fact:The Actuarial Assumption for our fund is 8%, the pension fund has actually averaged about 8.8% since 1974. The Fund is currently over 10% for 2012, year to date (October 2012).
Myth:Active members will not contribute more than 9% of their salary to the pension.
Fact:Most active members will agree to a slight increase in the amount they contribute to their pensions Myth: Police pension COLAs are compounded annually.
Fact:Police Pension COLAs are NOT compounded.
Fact:No one born after 01 January 1955 will receive a COLA until they are 60 years of age and that COLA will be 1.5%.
According to a Chicago Tribune/WGN-TV Poll published on 16 October 2012, "Illinois voters overwhelmingly blame politicians for creating the state's public employee pension mess."

Executive Director Gallagher has been sounding the alarm for years. Voters know this is not a problem that occurred overnight. However, Alderman Richard Mell at the hearings is quoted, "We have to solve the situation as quick as we possibly can." (Chicago Tribune, 02 Oct 12). I hope the alderman means long term plans are needed, not a quick fix, because a quick, knee jerk reaction will NOT solve this problem.

VOTE "NO" on the proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution, Resolution #49!

One of these knee jerk reactions is the proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution, Resolution #49. This hastily written amendment WILL send many pension issues to the courts because it is written with such vague terms. No one wants their pension money/payments tied up in the Illinois Court System!!

Who will decide what a pension benefit increase is? Perhaps even the inequitable 1.5% COLA increase at age 60 will require a 3/5 majority of the legislature. Why let the courts decide on your pension! Please vote "NO" and tell your family and friends to vote "NO."

Which is the better investment for the money? Maggie Daley Park or adding 450 beat cops on the streets?

How many cops can you put on the street for that $55 million dollars being pissed away on Maggie Daley Park? Let's say a rookie officer's wages AND benefits are $120,000 a year. Welp that $55 mil. would buy you 458 officers for one year if my math is right.

Now it's been widely published that it cost Chicago on average of $400,000 to investigate and prosecute a homicide. Look people, now ask yourself how many homicides would those new 458 officers have to prevent to recoup that original $55 million dollar investment?

Do the math, ($55m/$400K == 138 homicides) and you're at break even.

Seeing that we are over the 400 homicide mark. Preventing 138 of them would be about a 33% reduction. Can they do it?

Now it's also been widely published that a GSW victim that doesn't have insurance costs the health care system $52,000 a visit in ER and hospital cost. How many of those would be prevented with the additional officers?

Add it up!! The number of shooting victims is in the thousands for the city. How many shooting can we stop.

Now..on the other hand what do we get for our money when we spend $55 million dollars for a Maggie Daley Park I ask you? In less than a year the investment in new recruits should pay for itself by reducing homicides and GSW victims health care expenses.

No bogus laws creating more paperwork to register gun sales and gun transfers or a tax on bullets is going to work. It's punishing the wrong people as the politicians disarms the good people making the good people the targets of the terrorist.

We also wonder how long it will take and before these new laws come under a supreme court challenge pissing away even more money?

These are tools of fear being used on us all to extort tax money while the clouted ones play the victims.

Chicago politicians are about using the fear as a tool to rape us on taxes. It's about enriching their friends with 75 year term no-bid contracts. Bullshit like Shot Spotter microphones, and speed trap cameras. It's the gift that keeps on giving to the clouted ones. Now the latest smoke and mirrors is corporate partnerships which is just another tax scheme for the corporations and politicians to share in the proceeds.

I hope all you people are voting this week. That's all. We need to end this circle jerk of money.

Yes, yes, yes!

Time to start a new hockey league and put these NHL owners in their places!!

Who's with me. I got five dollars to start. j/k

Just as hockey was making a comeback and now it looks as though even the winter classic will be cancelled this year -- maybe the entire season!

I'm not buying ANY NHL merchandise. I'm not supporting United Airlines that has naming rights to building the Hawks play in.

They can go bankrupt for all I care but that doesn't mean no hockey. A new and better league can rise from the ashes.
