Media Keep Missing The Point

Media Keep Missing The Point
To say that the Chicago News Media is conflicted on whether to report the news or spin it has always been a concern with me. Both Chicago Newspapers, the Tribune and Sun-Times go to some length in exposing political corruption. Each paper has an “investigative” or “watchdog” series. And for the most part, their reporters... Read more »

Is Madigan Fu$king Taxpayers Again? Son-In-Law Matyas Named RTA Top Lobbyist

Is Madigan Fu$king Taxpayers Again? Son-In-Law Matyas Named RTA Top Lobbyist
Yes, you saw that profanity altered with a $ sign. What other character would you use when it involves Tax Payer Money being paid to Michael Madigan’s son-in-law yet again? While others have tagged Michael Madigan with cute nicknames, I choose to call an ace an ace, he is a slimy slippery politician that manipulates... Read more »

State Senator Ricky Hendon Resigns! But, Who Knew Obama Was An Ass-Kicking Stud?
The Chicago Sun-Times web post about Illinois State Senator Ricky Hendon abruptly resigning contained a side story about how Hendon and President Obama got into it Downstate.

Chicago Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel Sweeps On Low Turnout
Chicago Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel won a sweeping victory Tuesday Night. In all, Emanuel won 40 of 50 Wards and the only ones to reject him were those controlled by the old guard; i.e. Ed Burke, Michael Madigan, the Beverly Area and the far Northwest Side where many of the city’s policemen and firemen reside which...

Illinois Hit With With 67% Tax Increase

Illinois Hit With With 67% Tax Increase
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, in my mind, has been a political fraud for his entire career. The favorite refrain of his campaign ads was that “you know me,” and evidently more people than not bought it hook, line and sinker. Of course, the majority of his votes in the Democratic strongholds around the state, were... Read more »

Republicans Want Austerity Programs While Post 9/11 Intelligence Complex Costs Skyrocket

Republicans Want Austerity Programs While Post 9/11 Intelligence Complex Costs Skyrocket
Republicans swept into the House of Representatives giving them control while handing the president a bitter pill to swallow. Sure, government spending has been out of control for a long time. Unfortunately, most spending is not for the benefit of the people. Well, regular people anyway. The United States has long supported a secret government... Read more »

African Slave Reparations? I Have A Better Idea!
Chicago Mayoral Candidate, Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins raised the subject of African Slave Reparations during last night’s six candidate free-for-all debate.
