Here malice, rapine, accident conspire,
And now a rabble rages, now a fire;
their ambush here relentless ruffians lay,
and here the fell attorney prowls for prey;
here falling houses thunder on your head,
and here a female atheist talks you dead….
This mournful truth is everywhere confessed,
Slow rises worth, by poverty depressed.
Samuel Johnson -London
Our local, state and Federal government was handed over to fools, thieves and petty tyrants (bullies) via policy, lazy and apathetic voters and, also, people wanting to help neighbors and strangers and feel good about doing so.

Chuck Goudie is very well paid and he is not very truthful.
He says this to close Investigations, ” The I-Team left numerous messages at , Leo and . . . Schools, but never heard back.”
Not true, Chuck. One lovely young African American single mother of two answers, or takes down every phone message, every e-mail and every carrier pigeon missiive that come to Leo High School, where it has been since 1926 at 7901 S. Sangamon Street 60620, ph.(773) 224-9600 ex. 208 (for me) and fax at (773) 224-3856. …
Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.
No man lived for Christ like Francis Cardinal George, O.M. I., Archbishop of Chicago. I witnessed this simple, but tough, priest.
Cardinal George had a powerful intellect, but never allowed his gifts to smother questions, doubts, or take advantage of the follies of other people. He was not a big shot and therefore never became a media darling.
He was tasked by our Church to lead a huge and very combative Archdiocese that …
The Chicago Tribune, like WTTW, The Sun Times and the less lights on news and opinion, wants, O so very badly, for you to believe that Chicago’s mayoral election as anything to do with Bill De Blasio and Elizabeth ‘Senator Squaw’ Warren.
This is an election that finds a traditional south side Catholic Democrat ( pre 1972 Vintage) siding with Ald. Ricardo Munoz, some of the membership of SEIU to get Jesus Chuy Garcia a seat behind the big desk on the 5th floor of City Hall. Who’da thunk?
Chuy is …
In order to destroy the middle class, like every entree on a Chinese Buffet, every aspect of life important to it, as well as the monetary rewards curtailed via taxation, vocational disappearances and personal safety, must be vilified. The MC must come to realize that they are appalling and believe it. If you are for traditional marriage, you are a homophobic hater. If you support law enforcement, you are racist. If you are for lower taxes, you are racist and a classist. If you ask a young lady to mind …

Man, if you had the juice of the droopy-eyed mope and career grifter of the CTA – Forrest Claypool – you could wake up any morning with dead Mormon family in bed you, start the moring off with a bowl of Jello shots swimming Maker’s Mark, drive to work like Danny Davis, do as little as Governor Quinn for a straight six hours and draw a pay check and change with no less than six zeros behind the arabic numeral of your choice.
However, you are not Forrest Claypool, Sheila Simon, …
For years the Reds ( let’s just say, for the sake of argument, Progressives are trained, funded and pushed into the streets or the polling place by followers of Karl Marx and not Jesus of Nazareth) have wanted to control American labor. They are getting there. Big Labor always means SEIU and other monster political PACS like the teachers unions and any and all manifestations of the public service unions. The skilled and industrial trades played ball with massive memberships SEIU managed to organize into slave labor unskilled, low-skilled, or …
The Pope said nothing new in the article for the Jesuits run here in the States by America and nothing that Francis Cardinal George has not said at every turn in the twisted road to Illinois homosexual marriage and the necessary redefinition of marriage. Sex outside of marriage is a sin- gay, straight, or solo. Sex outside of marriage is not a crime, generally speaking. The only persons that concern me with regard to sex are my kids and of course old Dad himself . . .as if.
Like I said …
Marty Oberman is back! He is going to be Rahm Emanuel’s Metra Guy! Like Forrest Claypool, who knows absolutely nothing about buses or train-cars, not linked to a boon-doggle with Bombardier, or Ventra Cards, Marty Oberman don’t takle no trains – he bikes.
Biking is the street-cred for Reformers, who snap fingers at waitresses, leave no tip and manage to have Chicago’s media purse puppies write glowing accounts of their purported brains and hearts. These memes go unchallenged even after a Toni Preckwinkle manages to collect cadavers for Cook County, or …
