One More Day

Election Day Tuesday and many have been begging us to make an endorsement or provide some direction.

We don't endorse - we provide a forum (kind of a free-for-all forum) for people to spout their support or denigrate a particular foe.

We will say this much though:
  • Prickwrinkle would be the death of Chicago.
  • Only two candidates have polled at any level of support where they could beat Prickwrinkle - Daley and Mendoza. 
  • Vallas might be the best choice of a crowded and crappy field, but he has no money and (in our opinion), no chance. Plus he's just wishy-washy.
  • Same for just about everyone else in the field - no governing experience (aside from Chico and he's a straight up communist), little money, bare name recognition and no actual ideas.
We don't like any of the choices - Daley is another Daley, Mendoza is a poor judge of character (see Herbie), and everyone with a chance is connected to the Machine.

Good luck Chicago - you're going to need it.

Wow!!! I always wanted to be a fireman. Now I can sit in the station until I’m needed. Hope I can disregard a job as well when it’s deemed unsafe and fire can clear it for us prior to arriving. Yessssss! Hope the new mayor keeps our cable subscription in our new “firehouse!”

“Vallas might be the best choice of a crowded and crappy field, but he has no money and (in our opinion), no chance.”

In fact, he is the best choice and he DOES have a chance. He’s been gathering donations because polling shows him with the momentum at the top of the pack, leading Daley by 1%.

Please don’t disparage his candidacy at this point. He’s the only candidate that knows how to handle the mess that is our pension and restore restore retiree healthcare. Do not count him out. Please Vote Vallas.

Why not Willie Wilson?

At least he is his own man and has NOT built a career up through the Machine.

Daley, Vallas, Mendoza, Chico, even Lightfoot - ALL of them had a career built by the Machine. Elect them and you get more of the same.

No one should vote for McCarthy - he already demonstrated his skills as a leader. Fioretti? Evidently, no one really likes him?

Wilson doesn't "owe" anyone and his idea of breaking up CPD into four areas (with four Superintendents) is at least change from the status quo and that's what Chicago REALLY needs - CHANGE from the status quo.

What will happen is everyone will reach down and think about "Clout". If you got a job or promotion through clout - chances are, like sheep you will vote in another Machine candidate and hope for the best.

If you haven't received a promotion through clout - chances are, you will follow the sheep and vote in another Machine candidate and hope for the best.

Or, you might just sit back at home and just "hope for the best".

FOP and ALL the CPD should have gotten behind one candidate and that would have helped that candidate immensely. Now, you have no leverage no matter who gets in.

Another brilliant move.

Go vote in someone different. The path Chicago is on, needs to be disrupted and that will NOT be done by continuing with anyone tied to the Machine.

Vallas' plan is to reinstate the health care benefits that were promised to retirees. He's police family. He gets it.

His pension repair plan resolves the pension funding issues without resorting to reopening the state constitution.

He has serious leadership background and he proved he could right a sinking ship (Chicago schools were solvent by the time he got done with them).

Isn't it a shame, because he doesn't have Pritzker-sized money behind him, he can't win?
Well, I'm voting for him.

But the bullshit he is spouting at least benefits us. But he also has no chance. Again, not to say I even like him. I find him way better than Vallas who seems to be all about dumping more money into the black hole that is CPS. With that being said, Joyce and Vallas are my top 2 picks respectively, and that’s with knowing their issues and flaws. I don’t particularly like either of them, but Pick your poison. Neither of them have a chance though. I might just write in my dog, fuck this city.

If Vallas is not part of the machine then he is a separate machine designed to carry water for the machine. Was he running CPS for R. Daley as an outsider? Did he take over the failing and corrupt Chicago State just to turn it back over to the same people who were using it as a cash station because he is not part of the machine? He has the perfect function in the machine; he takes on shitty political jobs, keeps his mouth shut about the corruption, runs for office (governor then mayor) and gets no backing from those he covered for so he gets to say he is an outsider. What a joke.

Predictions of a low turnout too...if you believe pollsters.

If you haven’t early voted yet today, please do.
Very quick, no lines and plenty of machines. Also, the weather will be crappy tomorrow.
This voter turnout is a gauge for re-election data towards 2020.

I swear this has to be Paul Vallas Jr..or some campaign worker, trying to give his Dad a nice pep talk. Vallas, as stated by SCC is too wishy washy. Always has been and since he has some skin in the democratic machine, always will be. He fooled nobody. I am guessing he is looking for another state to find some office to hold. Just like all the other times he was bounced out of Chicago. Maybe this run gives him enough juice to drop a phone call for his kid and get him out of Mayberry PD and to the CFD.

God that made me sick to read. He begged for and was given a McDonald's franchise by Ray Kroc. Earned not given? And he was given the gift at least in-part because of being a minority. So cut the crap. Lots of people work hard and work their way up but aren't given a lucrative franchise worth millions. Listen to him talk. He has no ideas, he can hardly spout out a deep thought. That's why uses the summary statement time for a prayer. What did he say after condemning the closing of nearly 50 schools? He said build smaller schools in the areas where the 50 were closed. Brilliant idea, eh. He hands out money while running for office? How unethical is that? This is a man that calls himself Doctor when in-fact he was given an honorary degree for giving the college money. Some ego there. Again he didn't work for a Doctorate degree, he was handed an honorary degree like so many that give money to colleges. But no one else I've ever heard calls themselves Doctor. Note: He doesn't want to hire more cops. He talks about reinvestment in the south and west sides, how many times has that tune been played. But you don't see his business and residence down in the Englewood hood now do you. His favorite book is his own, which was very likely ghostwritten. He has been very lucky due to others generosity.

I haven't heard him hammer at the core issues in black community, that wouldn't get him votes. instead he wants to give, give, give. More free stuff. But calling them out for being bad parents, nope. He claims to give 50k here, 50k cash there, and much more in a matter of a weekend. Handing out cash without any strings at all. That means free money for drugs, booze, or to even possibly help fund gangs. And look how much these areas have changed due to his philanthropic efforts? None at all. Same problems different year. He would not be a mayor for all the people, he has his agenda too.

He is blowing smoke. The fucking schools had no place to go but up. Daley (part 2) was called out and embarrassed nationally. Vallas is the one who agreed to the ridiculous benefits the teachers have now. The lowest pension contribution anywhere. So the least this he can do is give us a plan to pay for them. He contributed to this problem, then rode off in to the sunset after he realized it couldn’t be sustained. His police family is in some suburb, not CPD. Vallas is what this city does not need.

Police family? His statement after VanDyke conviction. Why not, the judge and courts have spoken


“I was quite frankly surprised by the sentence, and this is the father of two police officers and the husband of a police officer speaking on this issue,” Vallas said. “The higher-ups never, never are held accountable. I felt Van Dyke was guilty, and I feel he should have gone to jail for a longer sentence.”

Daley would be awful for us but for different reasons: 1) he’s a DALEY, 2) he’s repeatedly said he wants to open up the Constitution to reduce our pensions.

MESSAGES BY BILL DALEY FOR MAYOR

I live on the northwest side and today I received two different flyers from Daley for Mayor. In one flyer it says Daley will take on CRIME and TAXES with 7 bullet points on what he is going to do on both, bringing in more beat officers, state of the art technology, toughter sentences for gun possession. Also freezing property taxes, fighting knee-jerk taxes and keeping neighborhoods affordable.

The other flyer has a photo of Barack Obama whom he served, Bobby Rush, and Al Gore the latter two endorsing him. Bobby Rush said "The future of this city is dependent on us to get this election right.......". Al Gore said, [Bill Daley] has a proven track record of achieving results for the people he is serving...."

Don't vote for Palos Heights Paul. He's a carpetbagger who f-cks up everything he touches. He is the true definition of a hack, whether working inside of it or when he's gone rogue. He will hacksaw our pensions and be lucky to finish with 3 percent of the vote.

Joyce is climbing and needs us to get him over the finish line!

Anyone and everyone who can vote in the 45th ward make sure to vote against alderprick arena.
Don't forget how his fellow cop hating buddy mocked the deaths of the two CPD officers killed by the Metra train in the line of duty. Don't forget the CR#s for expressing your First Amendment Right as a citizen if this nation. Don't forget every lie, slur, and every other thing arena has said, done, or implied. Don't forget , if he is reelected, he will qualify for a pension and destroy the 45th ward.

Anybody but arena.

To those who are saying that Joyce or Vallas or whoever doesn’t have a chance at winning, you are the problem. So many people have that mentality but if everyone who thought like that had some courage to take a chance and vote for these guys, they would be right up there at the top with Daley and Preckwinkle. Don’t let some polls that are run by liberals deter you from voting for who you think is the best canidate. Just drive through the 19th ward and see all the Joyce signs. Yes I understand that is just one ward, but let’s be serious it probably has one of the highest voter turnouts in the city. I voted for Joyce and I look at it like this. If he makes it to a runoff, that’s awsome. If he doesn’t there is still going to be a runoff and then we’ll all be forced to choose the lesser of two evils anyways so what is there to lose. It doesn’t hurt to take a chance.

It's kind of a shame that a few of the also-rans and castoffs didn't form a coalition to upend the machine rather than drag each other away from a runoff. Reminds me of that one time Revrun Squad shut down one of your freeways with a protest march but it fell apart when the organizers started bickering over who got to take credit on the interview circuit. There is so much Lord of the Flies going on in Western politics right now, it's unreal. And also darkly hilarious.

Because of her false accusations against me & my team, corporation counsel ended up writing us big checks to settle & we got 2 years back pay but c'mon how could someone so against the police be a good mayor?

God that made me sick to read. He begged for and was given a McDonald's franchise by Ray Kroc. Earned not given? And he was given the gift at least in-part because of being a minority. So cut the crap. Lots of people work hard and work their way up but aren't given a lucrative franchise worth millions. Listen to him talk. He has no ideas, he can hardly spout out a deep thought. That's why uses the summary statement time for a prayer. What did he say after condemning the closing of nearly 50 schools? He said build smaller schools in the areas where the 50 were closed. Brilliant idea, eh. He hands out money while running for office? How unethical is that? This is a man that calls himself Doctor when in-fact he was given an honorary degree for giving the college money. Some ego there. Again he didn't work for a Doctorate degree, he was handed an honorary degree like so many that give money to colleges. But no one else I've ever heard calls themselves Doctor. Note: He doesn't want to hire more cops. He talks about reinvestment in the south and west sides, how many times has that tune been played. But you don't see his business and residence down in the Englewood hood now do you. His favorite book is his own, which was very likely ghostwritten. He has been very lucky due to others generosity.

I haven't heard him hammer at the core issues in black community, that wouldn't get him votes. instead he wants to give, give, give. More free stuff. But calling them out for being bad parents, nope. He claims to give 50k here, 50k cash there, and much more in a matter of a weekend. Handing out cash without any strings at all. That means free money for drugs, booze, or to even possibly help fund gangs. And look how much these areas have changed due to his philanthropic efforts? None at all. Same problems different year. He would not be a mayor for all the people, he has his agenda too.

It's on baby... I like to engage with trolls that vote for political hacks.

Willie Wilson is the only free mans choice.

1. He voted for Trump. (So that alone shows a man willing to think out of the Democratic plantation mindset.) While interviewed by WCPT, he stated that the reason he voted for Trump is that Trump is all about getting jobs for blacks......Outcome (Black unemployment is now the lowest in the history of statistics being taken.) Willie Wilson stated the need for black men to have jobs in order for the family unit to be whole. The liberal male white interviewer crapped in his pants to hear a BLACK man talk about defending a vote for Trump.

2. Willie Wilson was born a share cropper in the south. He came to Chicago and advanced in society commensurate with his abilities. Let's see how polished your speech would be in the same situation. I'm judging the heart of the man, not the forked tongue of your response.

3. Willie Wilson has given money away his entire "rich" life. He's been called "Black Santa Claus" for 40 years. His generosity shows that he believes in the Lord and that he is willing to give up all his wealth to get into heaven.

I grew up in the Chicago Area. Left in 1970 and only just recently returned to Chicago Land. When I left a Daley had an iron grip on the city. Almost 50 years later there is still a Daley lurking about.
There were few at the time who really carded about the city, most were from radio station WIFM (What's In it For Me?). From what I have seen these past few months of being back NOTHING has changed.
Having family who are in law enforcement I would pray for the city but I think the Lord left without leaving a forwarding address.
The High Sheriff in the county I left; when asked by a member of the press why the perp was shot eleven times? His answer, "Because we ran out of bullets!"
Many thanks to the officer who told me about you.
