One Perfect Day

One Perfect Day
One Perfect Day can mean so many things to each and everyone of us. Especially at different times of our lives. But I suppose most would choose selfish things and I totally understand that. After all everyone needs a little joy and happiness in their lives. So whether it is the winning of the Lottery,... Read more »

RJ Vanecko Case Reeked To High Heaven

RJ Vanecko Case Reeked To High Heaven
I have written extensively about why I felt the RJ Vanecko Case involved official misconduct and/or malfeasance by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and that the Chicago Police Department engaged in perpetrating a coverup in order to protect the Daley Family name in the minutes and hours after Richard “RJ” Vanecko fatally struck David...

Ambrosio Medrano Gets 10-1/2 Years In The Pen

Ambrosio Medrano Gets 10-1/2 Years In The Pen
Former Chicago Alderman Ambrosio Medrano gets 10-1/2 years in the pen and so far as I am concerned he deserves each and every minute of that sentence. Why? Because he was convicted once before for political corruption in Operation Silver Shovel some twenty years earlier. Matter of fact this sentence is more than just when... Read more »

Gompers Park Speed Cameras Are A Scam

Gompers Park Speed Cameras Are A Scam
I have said it before that these new speed cameras Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wanted to so desperately have to protect school children was just another revenue generating scam to relieve the average citizens of tens of millions of dollars from their pocket books. Well, now that the first of these cameras have been strategically... Read more »

Roger Ebert Reviews Showed A Reverence and Love of Cinema

Roger Ebert Reviews Showed A Reverence and Love of Cinema
Roger Ebert and his movie reviews were a must before putting down a dime on a ticket even though I didn’t always agree with him. Why? Because Roger Ebert never missed on what the intent of the movie was. Of course, sometimes viewers will see a flick for something other than the directors intent or... Read more »

Preckwinkle Should Impose Mob Tax Instead Of A Gun Tax

Preckwinkle Should Impose Mob Tax Instead Of A Gun Tax
Beginning today all law-abiding citizens of Cook County (but not in Chicago) must pay a $25 Tax when purchasing a gun. Well, first off, I would hope Cook County citizens use better judgement and decide to purchase their firearms in any other county than Cook because I would not stand for such a clear violation...

Alderman Ed Burke A Private Dick? We Must Be Feckin' Eegits!

Alderman Ed Burke A Private Dick? We Must Be Feckin' Eegits!
Chicago Alderman Edward Burke is a guy who has tried to keep law-abiding citizens from owning guns, yet this extravagant spender of taxpayer monies not only has a staff of citizen paid body guards but has registered himself as a private “dick” and is permitted to carry semi-automatic weapons to and from work. Curiously, though,... Read more »

Rahm Emanuel Pulling A Fast One With Speed Cameras

Rahm Emanuel Pulling A Fast One With Speed Cameras
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, I believe, is pulling a fast one on the residents of Chicago with his controversial speed camera plan. Time and time again he talks of child safety, but when you consider how peeved Emanuel got when Chicago Tribune Reporter David Kidwell accused the mayor of covering-up and lying about what his...

Anita Alvarez: A Walking Contradiction

Anita Alvarez: A Walking Contradiction
Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, in my opinion, is a walking contradiction. So much so that I seriously doubt she can be trusted when it comes to protecting the rights of “everyday citizens.” If, however, you are connected to say, the former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and his cluster of political cronies, well,... Read more »

Jodi Kantor's The Obama's and Chicago Politics

Jodi Kantor's The Obama's and Chicago Politics
President Barack Obama already has his media machine discounting revelations contained in “The Obama’s,” a book by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor. However, that is a pretty much a normal ploy among the power elite whenever a book is about to be published about them. Let’s face it – damage control is standard operating... Read more »
