Unfortunately, the good citizens of Chicago seem to be "unclear on the concept". They've been electing Democrats to leadership positions for so long, they apparently aren't aware of that their ballots have both a right and a left side ... they just automatically put a checkmark on the Left side. One wonders if they are even aware of the names by the box ... let alone the history of malfeasance and chicanery of the Leftist candidates.
(Or perhaps that is a prerequisite for appearing on the ballot?)
I'm not a Chicagoan, so perhaps I am just ignorant of their thought process, but many of us who are casual observers of the workings of Bizzaro-Land sit by in casual wonder of a people who seemingly delight in electing the most malignant politicians to represent their city, their county, and their state.
Here's the most recent news from Bizzaro-Land:
IDIOCY: Out of ideas, Chicagoland Mayor Emanuel BEGS violent gangs to cut out all the murder and mayhem:
After yet another highly publicized and very deadly weekend in Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanual has come up with a plan to finally address the rising gang-related violence. Sort of. He’s essentially asking gangs to cut it out.That's what I call "Leadership"!
Oh ... sorry, I lost my mind for a minute. That's actually what I call ... um .. INANE?
Think of the most simple-minded soap opera on television, and double it. That's the best view from afar that you can imagine of the historic Democratic leadership of Illinois in general, and Chicago specifically. Are you people all suicidal? You actually vote for these people?
Are you all on The Dole, and do Democrats decide who gets their welfare checks depending on how they voted last year?
I don't mean to be critical of Chicagoans, but .... gee, it's hard not to. You keep voting the same crooks, idiots and Democrats (sorry to demean crooks and idiots by conflating them with Democrats) into leadership offices, and apparently nobody cares that their elected leaders are sucking on the public teat and you don't even get what's left when they're through.
And they are never through' they just keep on sucking, and you keep on voting for them!
I probably won't actually PUBLISH this article; it's mean, and dismissive of people in Chicago, and if I lived there I would be very offended. So I apologize for even writing it.
Still .. have you no pride?
Oh, hell, I'll publish it. You may not read it, and if you do, you may be offended. But WTF were you thinking when you elected these bozoa?????
