Cook County asks public for health-care guidance

Here is some advice, fire all the do-nothing patronage jobs Toddler keeps for friends and family. Then, re-invest all that saved money in actual care the citizens. Done. No need to spend any more money on the PR stunt of visiting the community.  (Jul 30, 2009 | post #5)

Chicago politics: Outgoing alderman wants wife to be his ...

What makes Ocasio's wife qualified for the position. Do we really need to pile on yet more nepotism on top of an already bloated patronage-ridden corrupt regime. Why not just replace all alderman with trained farm animals so that they bah bah like the sheep they are when Daley needs votes during that pesky little thing called democracy.  (Jul 18, 2009 | post #8)

Why would the city go out of its way to correct this when it cant even fill pot holes. This is beyond their management capability.  (Jul 13, 2009 | post #2)

If he was smart he would roll over and point the finger back the politicos so the Feds could have an easier case and then just retire.  (Jul 6, 2009 | post #4)

Peddlers balk at move

Is this Tunney, a Tunney bag man, a Tunney support who has paid under the table money to get his or her way downtown in City Hall, or just someone who wants to pick on the little guy? Most of their inventory is illegal reproductions of copywriten MLB intellectual property. - That is MLBs problem and a law enforcement issue and has nothing to do with regulating a legal commercial channel. The city has the right to regulate commerce as they see fit. - The vendors are already required to get permits. The city does not have the right to interfere as it sees fit. I believe habeas corpus protect us from against arbitrary state action, which Daley and this thugs must hate. How many of these guys have ever files an ST-1 report with the state as required by law, or even declared a single cent on their fedewral income tax. - That is Internal Revenue Service problem on a individual by individual basis. The same could be said for most Alderman of this city. All they do is obstruct the public ways and cut into the income of legitimate retailers in this area. - The drunks that flock around the legitimate and licensed bars are the ones that obstruct the public way. enact and enforce a 1000 foot rule like the other stadiums in this town. - The vendors are already barred from the sidewalks on the ballpark's perimeter along Addison and Clark Streets and Waveland and Sheffield Avenues, all public right of ways, by the way. Honestly, on this the day as we celebrate a revolution to free ourselves from oppressive government and the struggle for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is APPALLING that a small time in the pocket alderman would stoop to pick on citizens who try and make an extra buck a few days a year. And to couch that effort under the guise of safety is an insult.  (Jul 4, 2009 | post #53)

Tunney you got nothing better to do than to harass these small vendors. How is moving these folks increasing safety. Is this the first step in a two step process to cash in somewhere. Step one. Remove the existing vendors. Step two, move in new, connected, vendors that the city and your ward has a kickback deal with. Or, are the store owners **** off at the parking meter situation and this is your way giving a little back to the merchants so they keep the reelection funds coming in. If you really want to increase safety around the park, prohibit all alcohol sales two hours prior to game time and two hours after end of game. That is the cause of most if not all issues around the Wrigley, the worlds largest beer garden that also serves as a place where baseball is attempted.  (Jul 4, 2009 | post #24)

Giannoulias aide put kid on clout list for priest

It is called Pay to Play. Giannoulias is just the latest dirty hack to be uncovered. Glad the citizens learned who he really is before he rose too far.  (Jul 3, 2009 | post #73)

Chicago parking meters: Aldermen scrutinize deal after th...

What collection of toothless puppies these Alderman are. A day late and a dollar short. Billions of dollars short in fact. Daley gave our money away and the Alderman pretend to care. The Alderman should grow a pair and rescind the deal. But that will not happen because the Aldermen are the lap dogs of a dictator. As long as they get theirs, the Alderman will continue to put on shows like this one where they pretend to be concerned, but nothing NOTHING gets done or changes. What a joke. Our city government has been hijacked by larcenists.  (Jul 3, 2009 | post #17)

Now that it is the legislatures turn to actually DO something about the budget, we get the typical clown and hack responses. They either point the finger back at Quinn or shrug and say it is all part of the political dance. The citizens of this state are sick and tired of it. What we need is leadership not more of the same tired old where is mine, back room deal, quid pro quo politics. Hopefully the Feds have left all the old Blago wiretaps in place and are picking up new information to be used for new charges.  (Jun 29, 2009 | post #3)
