No Money - I Swear!

  • First, the good news: Chicago Public Schools will remain open this spring until June 20, as scheduled. Students, parents, teachers, principals, you may now exhale.

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that decision late Friday. But follow the still unexplained millions of dollars required to achieve that end
Rahm's current school chief - the one not currently headed to jail - said the schools would shut down 01 June because they would run out of money. CPS then sued the state of Illinois claiming "racism" instead of "criminal fiscal mismanagement." Claypool and CPS lost that argument.

Now Rahm has promised to keep the schools open, lest there be hundreds of thousands of extra targets around for the gangs to kill:
  • So Emanuel now has to find that money. At this writing he hadn't announced where.

    But he did directly address Chicago students and parents: "You will be in school to the end of the school year. We will be here working to find the resources to make those payments."

    Emanuel acknowledged the growing parental angst about whether schools would close early, saying that parents "have to have peace of mind" knowing kids will be where they belong — in school.
We're imagining Rahm's magical money tree will come up with the dollars...or he'll just short someone's pension payment.

Rham... the children need summer jobs---- but I will give you a pass for not taking a republicans presidents money in the so called OFBCI program that gave money to communities to get kids off the streets--- you can't take anything from a republican that would derail the crime wave that you created and that only you can cure.... I applaud you Rham --- I understand you can't let the crime crisis go to waste cause election is right around the corner

Teachers are all about money. They still only pay 2% toward their pension. How much is the remaining 7% which the CPS contributes in addition to the required pension contribution worth.

Within the last few weeks he "found" $160 million for pandering, er I mean streetlights and another $26 million for fixing fieldhouses.
Perhaps he can use this $186 million toward the $250 million the schools need?
I bet the state might kick in the rest if they saw Rahm has some skin in the game

Speaking of Barbara Byrd Benett. I was reading an article when a name I recognized. Bob Boik who was Barbara's Chief of Staff. Is that the same Bob Boik who now is Eddie Johnson's Chief of Staff? If so, is he one of the people she has flipped on? Stay tuned this could get interesting.

I hope the FOP is keeping records of all those nice give aways RAHM has given with tax money.

And when our money is gone the next step is socialism turns into communism. Under Obama the government controlled business, under communism the government will own business. Just look at the way they are trying to take over healthcare as an example. Obama is more of a communist than a Muslim.

Hmmmm, NO MONEY??? CPS is BROKE????

If CPS has no money, where is the $17M coming from to build a new field and gym at Lake View HS?

This coming on the heels of CPS dumping over $20K into the weight room for equipment CPS could have gotten for 40% less if they had more then one vendor for these type of purchases.

NO MONEY to make all CPS schools accessible for everyone, just money for fields, gyms, batting cages, and weight rooms, huh?

So Rahm is crying about 'inequities' about funding the schools? How about the 'inequities' of police coverage on in 016? Amazing how selectively stupid Rahm can become. Yeah...there is more crime in Englewood, but who's fault is that?! Then there is Claypool flashing the race card....

Why was Karen Lewis at Byrd Bennet sentencing? Was it a show of support. Keep supporting those public schools and when your neighborhood collapses and your neighborhood parish closes you only have yourself to blame. But you saved a lot of money by not paying tuition but your is nothing

I find it appalling that what the parents seem most worried about if the school year ends early is that they don't know where their kids will be. I can guarantee that my parents knew where all seven of their kids were all the time. Makes me wonder, where the heck are the parents?

Maybe he will mortgage the Copper wire in all City structures, you know as a matter of scrap metal price, to go along with the HVAC and plumbing mortgages.

Rahm is like that monopoly player who has boardwalk and park place with the opponent owning the rest of the board, just refusing to give it up when there literally is no way left to win. Okay then, until the end then, RAHM.

We the people just rolled our turn, and landed on free parking, TYVM, and it is your turn again. Yeah yeah yeah you gotta go to the bathroom, and you gotta check your phone and and and yeah, you can make it to June, to Summertime, bit you STILL have to roll. Now, take your turn, Rahm. You face a gauntlet of hotels that you can no possibly escape.

This city is already a joke with no morals. Just legalize and tax the vices the citizens, politicians and yes, even the police enjoy.

Narcotics (all, not just marijuana)

Do that and the thing democrats love the most, which is tax the ever loving shit out of something and we will be able to pull ourselves out of the pit we've dug ourselves in.

The money Rahm looking to give to CPS ($270mil) is about the amount he HAS to provide to their pension. No surprise.
He caved in and did not raise their pension contribution to 9%. And threw in a 8.75% - 4yr wage increase.
Spend - spend - spend. That's all CPS does.
No checks and balances until they get caught and then there's no penalty.
CTU threatens Strike - Rahm folds over.
Then there's the whole Sanctuary City Free School debacle.

Leave it up Rahm and divert taxpayer and other City employee earmarked money to the greedy teachers union.
Nothing left for Graham Crackers.

I once read a book by a man named Al Franken that was called Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them. I know now that it was Rahm that Franken was referring to.

And stop harping on the CTU. This is what Rahm wants. A divided city allows a manipulative little cocksucker like him to splinter all of us and keep us from voting for someone, anyone, but Rahm.

Wait a second here.....Karen Lewis brought up the SUPES crap all the time and how it drained money from CPS and her members, then she goes and sits behind Bye Bye Birdie at her sentencing?? Karen Lewis is a walking (shuffling) and taking (squawking) conflict of interest. She complains her members see professional development days as worthless. Then when CPS gives her members (4) furlough days for those teacher development days, she squawks.

I can't wait for the hate circus downtown today. Let's hope we see plenty of Jujitsu Brown, Jesse CPO Sharkey, Michael Charles Brunson, Col. Jackson Potter, and all the other CTU misfits and their angry, militant brothers and sisters. The only thing which would make the whole shit show would be Ronnie Woo Wo Wickers spouting Rahm Woo Emanuel Woo Bruce Woo Rauner Woo Karen Woo Lewis Woo More Woo School Woo Closings Woo More Reachers Woo Cut Woo Woo Woo Woo WoO Woo Woo Woo.
