Rahm Emanuel Proposes Handgun Registry and Police State With It

Rahm Emanuel Proposes Handgun Registry and Police State With It
First he wants cameras to blanket every corner of the city and now he is proposing a statewide handgun registry. Both, of course, involve the collection of fees and continuing his insatiable appetite for tapping the average citizen of every last nickel and dime. However, I think it goes beyond the money with this guy.... Read more »

Occupy Movement Is Spreading While Chicago Initiates $125 City Protest Fee (Eh Fine)

Occupy Movement Is Spreading While Chicago Initiates $125 City Protest Fee (Eh Fine)
The Occupy Wall Street Movement has blossomed and is now spreading to cities around the country. Protesters continue to voice their displeasure with big business greed and an ineffective political system that fails to punish those who continue to abuse it and the taxpayer. Of course I have to believe that much of this discontent... Read more »

Edward M. Burke and His Bodyguards: Is It Ego Or Is He Really The Mayor?

Edward M. Burke and His Bodyguards: Is It Ego Or Is He Really The Mayor?
What could possibly drive a man like Edward M. Burke to behave as if he is was somehow as powerful as the Mayor of Chicago. Is it simply the story of a delusional old man with a bad case of Big Ego? Then again maybe it is something more given the fact that he appears... Read more »

Emanuel: It Would Cost Too Much To Fire Thieves - What's Wrong With This Picture?

Emanuel: It Would Cost Too Much To Fire Thieves - What's Wrong With This Picture?
The Chicago Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Bureau has had a long history of corruption. Even after the last organizational breakdown in 2007 forced firefighters to use GPS enabled cellphones to monitor their whereabouts and keep them honest it appears that 54 firefighters couldn’t have cared less about the new measures and decided they were going...

Chicago Ward Remap Complicated By African-American Losses

Chicago Ward Remap Complicated By African-American Losses
According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Chicago lost some 200,000 residents, but, 180,000 of those losses were in the African-American Community. And that will complicate matters when politicians sit down to remap Chicago’s Wards. After the 2000 Census, the powers that be were able to protect incumbents, as well as preserving the city’s black representation.... Read more »

Rod Blagojevich Jury Must Factor Pay To Play Culture

Rod Blagojevich Jury Must Factor Pay To Play Culture
As former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is no doubt sweating it out when it comes to his future, I remain convinced that if he is guilty then the government prosecutors better rent a few cattle cars to transport all the other corrupt politicians along with him. Don’t get the wrong idea here, I am just... Read more »

Freaky Monday: Dominique Strauss-Kahn Arrested For Rape, Donald Trump Bails Out & Rahm Emanuel's Inauguration

Freaky Monday: Dominique Strauss-Kahn Arrested For Rape, Donald Trump Bails Out & Rahm Emanuel's Inauguration
Monday was a freaky news day. Generally I don’t do multiple commentaries, especially on divergent topics, but today was such a bizarre day it was opportune given the  different reactions across the web. It ranged from outright anger and disgust to utter comedic hypocrisy. I suppose that is why Monday’s are legendary for heart attacks... Read more »

No Confidence Vote In Rochester Lands Jean-Claude Brizard In Chicago
Rahm Emanuel said that Jean-Claude Brizard was an “experienced educator and proven manager,” while Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis, pointed out that the Rochester Teachers Association had an entirely different opinion of the man named to head the Chicago Public School System. Apparently Rochester Teachers gave Brizard a 95% vote of no-confidence just two... Read more »

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 »

Chicago Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel Sweeps On Low Turnout
Chicago Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel won a sweeping victory Tuesday Night.
