If only Chicagoans are on the hook for any financial losses from the Olympics then that would be fine. However, as how things work around here, I'm afraid that the ENTIRE state will have to foot the bill for the Olympics that most people don't care about, except Daley's cronies who will make a ton of money from it.
How do you know how most people feel? Are you like the others on this topic who assume that their friends provide an accurate cross-section of the population?

I heard that same phrase over a year ago when I predicted Obama would become POTUS. You probably believe "Operation Chaos" was a success.

"Operation Chaos" = Obama and Daley Administrations.

Looks like he was correct because he called you a nitwit and you couldn't even get that right.

Joe and Brian are probabily paid Daley Bootlickers. They sit in front their computers all day and try to defend the indefensible. I bet they don't even have the time to bathe or swipe themselves,trying to protect their master's image. Daley is a piece of crap,and anything or anybody coming from him,is also crap. The video is great and will be play until October 2, pal.

Why do you keep posting the same sad video over and over under different screen names? Trying to make it appear that there's more to your personal anti-Olympic movement than there actually is? Don't bother answering, I know already.

I'm not paid by Daley or anyone else. Just a sports fan, and an Olympic fan. I'd love to see the games here and believe they'd do way more good than harm, and that not having them would be a big mistake. The legacy an Olympic Games would leave would make this city even more prestigious in the world than it already is.

Yeah, he won't be able to come up with any links. His sources include:
Tribune polls that have all 20 of the No Games Chicago activists loading the ballot box...in the same "Chicago" way they constantly rail about, Tribune message boards that are a sounding board for the very vocal minority, and all of their "friends" who don't want the Olympics here. Of course, they're all miserable people who only have miserable friends, so that explains that.
I was just talking to my sister who DOES live in Chicago and was reading her some of the comments.. She would like to know just WHO they are polling in all her years in the city she's NEVER been called for a poll nor does she know anyone who has been..I know when I lived in the city I never had anyone call for any polls either and know of no one who ever got one either..
Since she has a job where she comes in contact with the public all day I suggest she conduct her own poll.. which would be MORE scientific and MORE random than the polls they claim are random and scientific..

Independent...I think they called "I Monticus". NO ONE I know in the city supports this....Liberal or Conservative. I have never been called for a poll except to give money to the GOP. Go Rio!

I've never been called either, but in all honesty they have no mechanism for contacting me.

Everyone I know really wants the Olympics to be here. Yes to make some money (we are capitalists aren't we?) but more to see our great City on the world stage, finally, without Al Capone, and with our great restaurants, skyline, people, friendliness, quirks, and charm.

I personally can't wait.

Your most likely right I Monticus has been everywhere, done everything, lives in the only neighborhood that doesn't have crime, best school, so most likely they call him for every poll..

Yes..former Schmed is mostly right. I don't consider a public school in Arlington Heights known as Forest View and some dinky college in Iowa knowing everything. However, he sure thinks it is wonderful.
