Groot Speaks with Forked Tongue

Groot thinks she can run a business?

  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot warned ComEd’s top executive this week that the city will not renew its utility agreement with the electric company unless she receives a “substantive” plan that details goals for ethics reform, an end to residential disconnections, help with the city’s clean energy goals and other measures.

    In a letter sent Tuesday to ComEd CEO Joseph Dominguez, Lightfoot chided the utility for not committing broadly to ending all disconnections during the COVID-19 pandemic and the recession. In July, she called out Dominguez in another letter for the company’s role in a federal corruption probe. ComEd confessed to paying $1.3 million in bribes to associates of Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan.

    Lightfoot’s administration said this summer — and officials reiterated at a public hearing Tuesday — that it would be too expensive, costing billions of dollars, to follow through on a proposed city takeover of the power grid from ComEd. That admission eliminated some leverage the mayor had in negotiations.

Groot has been claiming for months that she doesn't have any money (the last paragraph says it would cost billions she doesn't have) but she expects ComEd to stop shutoffs that - essentially - give away electricity for free.

How do you run a business without income? You think this would have been a clue:

  • With schools closed, restaurants shut down and an economic collapse looming in the early weeks of the pandemic, Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced plans to stop ticketing, booting and impounding cars throughout the city to ease financial pressures on Chicagoans.

    “The only ticketing that is going to be happening is if there is a car or other vehicle posing some kind of public safety threat. But the normal ticketing should be suspended until April 30,” she said during a March 18 news conference. “So, for example, an expired meter that is otherwise legally parked and not posing a public safety threat, you should not be getting ticketed.”

    [...] Try telling that to anyone else who got hit with one of the more than 35,000 parking tickets the city issued during the period Lightfoot told the public they’d be getting a break.

    [...] A Tribune analysis of city parking data found that nearly half of the tickets were given to cars for expired meters in the downtown area — an infraction Lightfoot specifically had singled out as exempted from punishment.

How about opening businesses so people can make money?

EXCLUSIVE: 'Defund the police' activist Alyssa Milano calls 911 sparking massive police presence in her quiet California neighborhood claiming an armed an gunman was on her property - but it was really a teen shooting at squirrels with an air gun

Years ago, we saw a TV show about "gun control;" they interviewed some guy who was standing in the middle of his lawn, making broad, angry gestures at the residences across the street.

"Yeah, they should go through all those places and take all the guns!"

I related this to someone else, and he not only agreed, but expanded upon the theme."They should use the SCANNERS and go over this WHOLE DAMNED COUNTRY and take ALL THE GUNS!" I did not bother asking for technical elaboration...

Thus, the "Alyssas" - merely other people not worth knowing.

And just last week the beloved all knowing Mayor proceeded to go on a popular sports radio show where she scolded and warned the Chicago Bears organization that they had better not ask to have any fans at Soldier Field this year and the future until she approves of their comprehensive plans to make all attendees completely safe.If I am 1 of the Bears owners,unfortunately they have about 10 of them,I would be blowing in calls to downstate Illinois,St Louis and Iowa to hold games with 25 to 30,000 Fans cutting the City of Chicago and the Park District out of any money.The Cubs,White Sox,Bulls,and Blackhawks should be doing the same.

City stopped disconnecting Water for non-payment... and surprise (Gomer!) the revenues are down... wonder why?

As soon as you stop disconnecting the electric or gas for non-payment, why the fuck should anyone pay?

When no one pays, the utility can't pay to maintain the grid - so it fails... no money to pay means no one employed to fix it.

Groot is an unwitting pawn for the Democratic Socialists of America
From their website:
"Chicago DSA is the Chicago local of the Democratic Socialists of America, the largest American socialist organization in nearly a century, with over 70,000 members nation-wide and upwards of 3000 in Chicago.

We share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, abolition of the prison industrial complex, feminism, racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships. We are socialists because we reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race, sex or any other factor, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo. We are democratic socialists because we believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for the few.

Chicago DSA is an entirely volunteer-run, member driven organization with priority campaigns to enact universal rent control in Illinois, democratize ComEd, and defund the Chicago police and fund our communities. Chicago DSA also hosts regular political education programming and engages in rank-and-file labor organizing and strike solidarity campaigns, among other work."

Already we have 6Aldermen who are members.
Lightfoot will be one term. DSA will try to push for one of their own next election

Most officers have stopped issuing parking tickets under the belief that COVID is still a real threat.

As I understood the parking meter deal, the city only received money from tickets written but the company received all meter payments. The city also was to pay if the meters could not be used, such as a street shutdown by the city. Since it was lightfoot who shut us down for covid, is the city responsible for lost meter fees during that time?

Larri isn’t expecting much in the way of donations from ComEd is she?
Outright and typical strong arm tactic.

Covid’s is just about over with and Larri is wondering about shut-offs...for not paying bills, because people either won’t or can’t pay? Shutting off and shutting out Gold Coast shoppers, downtown, the business offices, the restaurants and all the revenues it brought in, all those lost jobs, that was smart.
And what about still shutting off beach and lakefront access except to feral violent thugs, rioters and protesters?

Gotta have free electric service for that free WiFi’ed computers she doled out and for those highly compensated StayAtHome e-skooling teachers. But everyone else like homeowners will have to pay more, even for lead in water, adding surcharges to cellphone and cable bills and looks like more for trash pickup too.

ComEd isn’t losing money for decreased electric delivery, even as CPS is still Closed, or City Hall is at -10% capacity, CookCo is even less. But ComEd still has to answer to the Shareholders and they expect a decent return in a Trump Economy like everyone else. Whatever is given away for free is a write-off and that equates to less tax they pay and bill increases in one form or another for the rest of us.

Wicked, evil, bipolar maniac that NOBODY likes. What a way to live.
Larri LightFührer will not be re-elected and perhaps is being told and realizes this. Her only plan now is to ruin as much as possible for the next guy. She hasn’t picked on LaSalle St bankers...yet, and I wonder when the last time of if she’ll be invited back to City Club of Chicago after the Nov 4th Covid Recovery.

Just been told over and over the police didnt knock, now we find out they did. 12M Payment and still acting crazy based on what? Misinformation?

We got a pimp in Seattle getting paid 150K to reform police. Wells Fargo CEO says he can't find talent - maybe he can hire the pimp and or prostitutes? It is about bending over backwards because of privilege to work and pay most of the tax burden now right like food stamps. Ebt, and welfare.

Why not hire criminals pay them more than the people at the top in order to reform banking and all sectors of the economy in the racist nation USA? Just being sarcastic.

BLM is creating resentment and maybe even racism from Americans, that didn't exist before.

This is because BLM and ANTI-BLACK RACISM are based on LIES

Here is the real, root cause of their problems. Here is the ULTIMATE RED PILL, that the right does not acknowledge and that the left censors. You cannot solve the problem if you refuse to acknowledge the cause. Hence, the problems will persist. Because of this, the left will continue lying about the cause, by blaming you for racism and oppression.

None other that Malcolm X warned black Americans of the inherent evil intentions of white liberals.

Malcolm X said: "There are many whites who are trying to solve the
problem. But you never see them going under the label of liberals." He
warned blacks that: "A white American who identifies
as a liberal is
the most dangerous and deceitful thing in the Western Hemisphere." He
compared white liberals to a fox, which unlike the wolf, deceives its
prey, i.e., they claim to be fighting
for the rights of black
Americans when the reality is that they are exploiting blacks for their
own benefits. Let's hear them call Malcolm X an Uncle Tom and/or
sellout.

In a speech given Dec. 4, 1963, he said: "The white liberal
differs from the white conservative in one way. The liberal is more
deceitful and hypocritical than conservatives. Both want power;
but the white liberal has perfected the art of posing as the black man's (sic) friend and benefactor."

Didn't you know that the virus doesn't spread during protests, only during republican political rallies, just ask BLM and Antifa members and members of the Democratic party.

Slightly O T: Why are the streetlights on DURING BROAD DAYLIGHT along Milwaukee Ave and Devon Ave?

Just curious....

Hey sarge. It’s a faulty light sensor. At night if you shine a flashlight under the green street light box on the corner, the street lights will turn off all night. The sensor is under that. I take it you worked inside a lot.

Every time I read about Malcolm X and his wisdom I think, isn't it pitiful that that's about all they have to name schools after.

**I've noticed that too...also during west and south side parties!! By the way, Kids cannot go to school, citizens cannot attend sports games, limited church activity, no beaches all summer, yet police go to training in a building that's only fit for rats and we sit on top of each other, sometimes 40 people in a room! How the fuck can we go to training, sit close to each other, do scenarios yet kids cant go to school?

One of the home schooled psych ward rape babies that work in the Water Management's Commissioner's office posted a tribute to our victim of the week on the official DWM page and was summarily trounced by, it appeared, all the people of earth and then was taken down. Water keeps demonstrating it's sympathies any way it can. Sewer Cleaning foremen make more than a captain and do infinitely less work. If you can imagine that. I'm gonna take a guess and say about half of DWM makes over $100,000/year and at least 10% make $200,000.

==============================================
They will stay on if the sensors have not been cleaned for a while from all the road smut, too.

On parking meters-
The parking meter company gets $10-20-40 million or something guaranteed on a per period(monthly?) basis ,and if they don't collect that amount the city pays them the difference. I forget the figures, was discussed here years ago.

They are rioting in the "burbs" , some family with a big Trump sign out in the "burbs" in one of these cities had theirs cars garage and house burned down. There are pictures at Brietbat/Gateway Pundit of their property on fire

The city and state, as well as the entire world is swirling down a drain and you are worried about street lights! Glad you weren’t my Sgt.!

Shockingly, people can be concerned about more than one thing at a time. While I'm not the original poster, I wouldn't want you working for me if you can't understand the concept of multi-tasking.

If you don' don't mind SCC, I have an observation regarding the Parking Tickets part of the Post. And this is a long post.

After the March 18th press conference, Parking Enforcement at Finance was instructed to Only Issue tickets for Public Safety violations + Parking Meters.

We use a Hand Held computer. The Software can be entered by management to insert or remove Title 9 Violations for *reasons* like a Do not Enforce order from City Hall.

Tickets for Expired Plates and Expired City Stickers and Residential Permit violations stopped getting issued. We stopped enforcing Commercial Vehicle violations and Taxi/Livery/Limo parking bans. We still are not issuing Expired Plate Tickets until at least October. We even stopped issuing tickets for Improper Display of City Sticker and Parking the Wrong Way on a 2 Way Street.

The article shows a list of tickets issued from 3/18 to 4/30. The list includes tickets that Finance was Ordered to Not Issue.

So the question now becomes, who was issuing these tickets? I know from experience and from reading the Blog that there has been a slow down in Parking Tickets and Compliance Tickets under title ( since Daley started screwing with Court time.

But I also know from first hand experience that in some districts, cops love their Street Cleaning and Rush Hour tickets. And I'm not going to gripe over this because I get it. Ticketing vehicles for Street Cleaning and Rush Hour is a great way to have activity that ISN'T *Insert BS profiling complaint here*

I've even suggested 'write parkers because you're not profiling a vehicle that has expired tags or is missing its front plate."

I'm just requesting that no one scream and point fingers at Finance for this one.

Now regarding the meters.

We know the Lease was stupid. Shouldn't have been allowed by the Council. But it is what it is at this point.

The City Owns the Meters. The Lease is just that...A Lease. CPM/LAZ gets the $ from the payboxes and has to maintain and repair.
The City has the legal right to shut off the meters still. But it would cost $ per vehicle space for every hour of operation per day
the meters were turned off during "Normal Operating Hours."

In the CBD some of those meters are on 24 hours and 7 days a week.
Thats a lot of $ the City would have to fork out to CPM. The amount I heard was over 10 million.

We all remember how CPM was at one time ticketing Marked CPD vehicles. I recall a thread here a few years ago about how a unit got nailed, I think it was on Northwest Hwy in 016. The City ordered CPM to not touch Marked City Vehicles. CPM told the city off because Contract language didn't exempt City or County or State vehicles from having to pay the meters.

Observation: CPM isn't exempt from paying the meters. Run them through whatever database y'all use "IF you were going to be checking Meters." I've ticketed CPM for the meters. Never got told to stop by my Managers.

You guys and gals in Blue stay Safe.
