Hey Rahm?

Walking by the newsstand, we caught a glimpse of this cover:



We immediately bought two.  One for us and one for Rahm.

Does the article get the real issues of the violence, or does it merely blame "assault weapons" and "massive" capacity magazines?


If it does nothing to defeat
"Emanuel 2016", I'm not interested.

The great State of Illinois. . With so many roll models. Is hard. I just... I can't even..

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


BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A southwestern Illinois village clerk seeking to be mayor is free on bond after being accused of sneaking a cellphone to a jailed relative while working as a records clerk for the sheriff's department.

Alorton Village Clerk JoAnn Reed was arraigned Monday on charges of official misconduct and bringing contraband into a penal institution.

St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson says he suspended Reed with pay in the wake of allegations she smuggled food and a cellphone to her niece while that relative was jailed Feb. 3 in Alorton on charges that accused her of assaulting a pregnant woman.

Reed's attorney, John O'Gara, declined to comment after Monday's court appearance.

The charges are the latest involving officials in Alorton. A former mayor and a former police chief are in prison.

WHOOOOOO DAMN! Rahm has GOT to be screaming and climbing the walls after this latest and hardest kick in the nuts to his 2016 aspirations!

His tutu is spinning and burning so hot and fast that he looks like something from the 4th of July...

"Hey boy! G'wan away from dat bobby-q grill with that whatchamacallit!"

*sput-sput-sparkle... WHOOOMPH! WHIIIZZZ!*

"Drop an' roll there boy! Dat's right. Eyebrows an' hair grow back... 'Ventually."

We're quite sure he definitely wants a knife slid between the ribs of everyone responsible for that cover.

In this part of the state, they complete their terms, maybe get elected several more times before they leave office and do whatever Daley is doing.

Long before the 2016 Presidential election you will see Rahm walking around in circles talking to himself cursing the shit out of Chicago and bemoaning the day he ever mentioned his wife's wedding dress stored in that crawl space.

And that will be a beautiful thing, to watch Rahm stuck in his Russian Winter, so to speak.

Hey Rahm if you want to actually reduce crime stop allowing the further decimation of the already pathetic leadership in the CPD. Promote actual street cops. Not self promoting hacks or incompetent morons, ie L Schmitz and Jim Jones. Really, Jim Jones? Hands down the worst "boss" I have ever run across in my entire career. Clueless and scared, never should have been promoted to sgt much less a commander. His clout needs to be beaten severely for his continued assault on the CPD.

Did anyone happen to notice how President Obama uses a figure of 445 [or some similar number] for the number of murders in Chicago last year with the actual final total for the year being closer to 512?

Not to slight Mr President, but I think Mayor Liar may have gotten to the President's speech writers in advance and I will be the conversation went something like this:

Mayor Liar: "Hey, Sam, I understand you're writing Barack's gun violence speech he's delivering at Hyde Park Academy on Friday afternoon . . ."

Speech Writer: "Mr Mayor, no offense, but we threw you out of the White House for a reason - you've got too much baggage, too many people to pay back, and we don't need your lying and stealing tarnishing the President's reputation, so what the fuck do you want?"

Mayor Liar: "Come on, Sam, give me a break - at least manipulate the gun murder numbers a bit so I can look a little better!"

Speech Writer: "Why should we try to make you look better? What good thing did you ever do for the President? What good have you done for Chicago?"

Mayor Liar: "OK, you've got me there - I screw up all the time, I pocket as much money as I possibly can from contracts, and I put incompetent idiots in office to give my friends family jobs - but doesn't everyone do that?

Speech Writer: “No, some of us are honest, asshole. We don’t need any heat from anyone because you want to protect your alleged reputation!”

Mayor Liar: “OK, Sam, so I screwed up big time. I helped contribute to slower economic recovery and helped make the President look bad a few summers ago when I tried to prevent a couple of national organizations look bad and threatened them with everything short of a contract on their heads if they made the truth public. You see, all I wanted to do was ride on Obama’s coat tails and ensure myself a place in the line for the Presidency. Guess I screwed the pooch on that one, too. So what do I have to do to get the number of murders in the speech pushed down below 500?”

Speech Writer: “Amazing! Absolutely amazing! You actually admitted you tried to take over the Democratic Party by manipulating Obama’s instruction to you – for your personal benefit. I never though I would hear the words from your mouth. You must be desperate man! OK, here’s the deal, since you actually spoke the truth for the very first time, we’ll look at dropping the number down to the mid 400s for you, but this is a one-time deal, so don’t expect any courtesies in the future.”

Mayor Liar; “Thanks so much, Sam – I appreciate the consideration. Anything else I can do to help the Country?”

Speech Writer: “Yeah, retire from office and disappear after your current term as Mayor is over!”

If I were the superintendent, I would find out who SCC is, make him First Deputy, and put him in charge of running the whole Department. Can you imagine, even being short on officers, how much more effective (and fair) CPD would be with SCC in charge?

A very simple suggestion that would both boost morale and help to reduce the homicide rate ... but it will never happen.

There has to be a LOT of publicity created on how screwed up Rahm's leadership is. His abundance of arrogance does not make up for his lack of leadership skills.

I live in the suburbs and I just watch in amazement how the city keeps sliding downward.

I do NOT believe any Chicago media as I know they are little puppets and groupies for the Chicago politicians.

I see more objective assessment on Fox Cable News on the problems in Chicago than all of the local channels - 2,5,7,and 9 combined.

I limit my travels to the city now.

Anyone with a half an ounce of brains would never vote for Rahm for any higher office.

The problem in Chicago is that you have a LOT of "quarter-ouncers". Both black AND white.

He filed an amended return, but I don't remember what the details were. I'm sure you can find it on some search engine.
He's been in office nearly two years; it's not like anything is going to happen now. They let him run. He won. The thing to do now is work against him so he can't win again.
