You could probably also take some of the ways other cultures celebrate the holiday and integrate it into your holiday celebrations or even your Holiday party.

Happy Hanukkah Oak Park, IL

Good day to all! Happy Hanukkah!

This Holiday even though it is well known to people of other religions is not really recognized in Oak Park, Il either which pretty much is indicated of Oak Park, IL. So not being Oak Park, IL born and bred, I wanted to throw this shout out to my peeps of the Jewish faith in Oak Park, Il and everywhere else.

Hanukkah again is not a federal holiday in United States however today will be celebrated with traditional songs and Gift-giving as today starts 25th day of the month called Kislev of the Jewish calendar year. I have actually given coworkers at the job who are the Jewish faith dreidels as part of interfaith acknowledgment I will be surprised to see such gestures in Oak Park, Il by any entity that does not have religious affiliation, but again what do you expect living in Oak Park, Il where they are supposedly “diverse”-ha!

Anyway peeps Happy Hanukkah!

Go ahead Oak Park, IL and learn something!

Eisenhower and possible tolls and the Mayor (of Oak Park, Il ) who does not listen

I was looking up traffic for the Christmas Holiday around Oak Park, Il to get a feel for how it is to drive on the Eisenhower, and I saw that they might add toll roads to it? It’s hard enough to get around the city as is, so some greedy ass lawmaker wants to make a profit off it? Geez, no wonder why people leave this area in droves!

Then I saw that the Mayor of Oak Park, IL wants to add ANOTHER round of vote regarding noise dampening walls as construction may begin in 2017. There is just enough bullshit I could deal with this guy if I owned a home here and thank God I do not because he and the rest of the officials in Oak Park, IL ask the people what they think about this wall project, about the pool project and when the residents say “NO!” these fucking idiots want to ask again!!!!

It is like these fools do not understand the meaning of “NO” like they are stalkers, rapists, or really bad insurance salesmen, no means no, so move on! Not in Oak Park, IL where they will push and push until they tax YOUR income until they get THEIR way and THEIR vision of what Oak Park, IL is.

When you think of the taxes involved and the amount of money you pay for the property here, you would think you would be treated better than a 5-year-old kid, some people like telling them what to do, what to believe and how they should pay taxes without PROPER representation of what they want. It’s good we are warming back up to Russia because Oak Park, Il is going to fit right in, the rest of us who say “NO!” to this type of shit, we’re Americans.

Here’s the link to the article talking about the Eisenhower changes, the proposed tolls and the non-American mayor of Oak park, IL who wants to do what he wants: http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-park/news/ct-oak-interstate-290-tl-1222-20161215-story.html

Trump wall or Oak park, Il cul-de-sacs?

I was in a store over on Harlem and Lake and I overheard two ladies talking about how Trump is going to build a wall and how racist he is, now I do not care where you are in this debate the last thing you want if you are against such a wall is to get the help of hypocrites from Oak Park, IL on your side to help. Hypocrites? Yes, since 1964 to about 1977 Oak Park, IL built cul-de-sacs as a means to limit the traffic from a growing black population in the Austin area, which Oak Park, IL shares a border with. With arguments of stemming crime and undesirables the cul-de-sacs were built to mystically stop criminals from coming into Oak Park, IL does that sound familiar?

Exactly! So to hear anyone from Oak Park, Il to bitch about Trump’s wall or how racist he is, with these cul-de-sacs still in place is just ridiculous. A cul-de-sac does not stop robberies, murders and rapes look at the crime statistics for this area plus there are articles stating how ineffective cul-de-sacs are to stopping crime citing the Oak Park, IL cul-de-sacs as an example! Ugh what is the old saying? “People who live in glass houses should not throw stones..”?

How about before you are butt hurt about how racist someone else is, you look around you to make sure that your own actions do not exhibit such racist. Why? Because actions speak louder than words. Trump could never build a wall, saying it costs too much, then what? There will still be the Oak park, IL cul-de-sacs on Austin. What if Trump gets his way and does build a wall? There will still be the Oak park, IL cul-de-sacs on Austin. The point is while these Oak park, IL cul-de-sacs on Austin still exist, no one from Oak Park, IL especially from the time of their origin, should bitch about building walls and how racist people are. Just look in a mirror then take a drive down Austin Ave, and you will see an example of Oak Park, IL’s own type of wall, right here in “paradise”.

Here is the Chicago Reader article about the “Negrophobia” that hit Oak Park, IL summing up how it created the cul-de-sacs on Austin today:

This is a Chicago Tribune article abut how ineffective cul-de-sacs like the ones on Austin dividing Oak Park, IL and Chicago are, all the way back in…. 1993!!! LOL:

Happy Thanksgiving from Oak Park, IL

Instead of bitching how punk ass the residents of Oak Park, Il are, I decided to instead post something about Thanksgiving, more specifically the History of Thanksgiving as presented by History.com. I love history any history and around this time before the big day we are “forced” to spend with friends and family, we should know a bit why this holiday was created and its origins.

I have a lot to be thankful for especially when you compare our lives to the less fortunate, however I do not think that is the viewpoints here in Oak Park, IL. Therefore, that is why I am concentrating upon the meaning of Thanksgiving to take solace in Native Americans (as told by popular belief) helping the early pilgrims survive that first autumn here in America.

Here is the link I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving no matter who’s house you have to go to, what you are “forced” to eat and no matter who shows up to annoy the hell out of you. Happy Thanksgiving!

What is up with Oak Park, Il blog?

I haven’t left you my darlings with the holidays rolling about and my honey’s b-day coming up I have my head spinning like the exorcist. I am usually an early shopper for Christmas so the location of the gifts are a huge issue for me now because I am trying to cut down on the junk I own. I am trying to get the hell out of Oak Park, IL and I am not paying a lot to the movers!

There have been a couple great things happen so far since I last wrote the Pool referendum FAILED hahaha and Fenwick lost on a “Controversial call” please! So I will be saying something about that soon and how Oak Park, IL is so delusional in its thinking lucky there are some people in this village have some common senses but it looks like only half of them do.

Trump won so I am planning a get-together Thanksgiving party with Johnson and Jill supporters in the middle and the Trump and Hillary supporters on either side. LOL Basically so that everyone does not kill each other during any talk about politics! Hope it works!

Why you need an Oak Park Park District booklet in Oak Park, IL

I cannot remember how I did but I grabbed an Oak Park Fall 2016 Park District booklet which tells you about different pain in the ass events that are occurring in the area, because Oak Park, IL just prints the booklets and hopefully you can just pick one up or run after them to find out what the hell is going on around the village.

Unlike most places, like Chicago, or even Berwyn, there are no signs posted before the event happens in the location it will occur in, no mention of these events in local news reports, or even monthly mailers that say hey “remember!” Oak Park, IL likes to keep people either renting, travelling through, or visiting to be surprised by the sudden shit that happens here. And you know Google maps does not figure the increased traffic that may occur in the areas by Barrie Fest or the Great Pumpkin Smash beforehand if you are looking up directions ahead of time, nor is there anything that really gives you the heads up you just have to know basically.

Plus, since Oak Park has a lot of parks in their borders it means that anything that the Park District does in the way of events will cause a traffic nightmare wherever that event in the park happens. Of course, that makes the inclusive bullshit stance that Oak Park, IL supposedly brags about a lie, because such close to the vest non-information shit tactics they pull is more in line with a gated community.

Whatever, so long as these idiots do not get in my way or mess with my parking situation even more than they usually, I have no problem with their stupid fests, because I spend the majority of my dollars …elsewhere. Peace.

PS: I have enclosed some scans of the booklet’s pages so you can get a visual of the booklet if you have not since it before or want to see if you can acquire it online.

I Voted! HAHA NO to the stupid OPRFHS Pool!!!!

I took time out upon this very special election day to vote my conscience, and my hatred for badgering mailers, and decided to vote for the best route I believe for the village of Oak park. I voted no to their stupid pool because the village still did not illustrate the benefits of the poll to me, whether it was in the short term or the long term.

If you are paying for something you want to know what you are paying for, and how it benefits YOU in the short and long runs. No talk about new jobs or new businesses or tax breaks just pay more money on your property taxes, which thank GOD I do not own any here in this seedy little village.

Well, I am off to throw my sticker in the garbage and go about my everyday life, because after today America gets not want it needs or wants… it gets what it deserves!

I found this fun clip on how one family is protecting their freedom of speech:

Either aisle of the political spectrum you are on its hilarious!

The reason why crime does not touch Oak Park, Il

Recently I read a Commentary article called: “I never worry I’ll be shot in Chicago. After all, I’m white” it to me seems that this is the attitude of most non-minority residents here in Oak Park, Il the idea that bad things do not happen in Oak Park, Il stems from attitudes like this. The problem is with this type of foolish it is rationalized, then spreads through the retelling of those “facts” the belief that the law enforcement department is omniscient and everywhere to stop the majority of crime. The so called deterrent to all the bad in the world however foolish as that thought is to those who live in the reality of the real world.

I mean when is the last time di done hear about a violent shooting in Oak Park, IL? When asking that question which the answer is no, we reaffirm the belief that the type of thing does not happen here. Why? Because we let “select” people into the village, we ferret out the “bad’ elements or we racially steer towards Austin avenue so they are closer to Chicago. The problem of segregation in Chicago is the reason why the area has the problems with crime today. The lack of sharing of resources and gentrification the entire city overall is now causing a backlash that has only increased the violent atmosphere we did not enjoy now. Now these were due to policies that were in place for decades since the founding of the city, one can hope that with the new opening of a Whole Foods in the Englewood area, the expansion of the Red line CTA even further south than just 95th street we are finally starting to see that spreading of resources.

Unfortunately, as Chicago is making some headway to reverse some of the idiotic policies of reintegrated America, Oak Park, IL is still enforcing these policies with the simple enforcement of its mindset. I have written about residents simply walking up to me and telling me to move my car in a predesigned (and paid) area for parking, to ease their ascetic values. The belief that she and others like her believe they are protected from all unpleasantries merely due to the color of her skin is just more of the same.

The thought that Oak Park, Il is safe because they certain elements have been excluded is automatically an example of such racism and self-indulgence that will doom Oak Park, IL to one day face the problem Chicago is facing now no matter if they like it or not. Believing that you are better than others does not mean that you are, it just means you do not see your mugger until they are two feet away and up your ass.

Here is the link to the article I have aforementioned: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-chicago-crime-white-privilege-20161002-story.html

Vote D200 Yes to OPRFHS Referendum: I was sent another fucking card!

Okay, now we are really pushing it. The fact of the matter is that OPRFHS is a pain in my ass, I received yet ANOTHER card about that stupid pool referendum Vote D200 Yes my ass. You know this being an election year we are continuously being bombarded about political messages so it is enough to hear all that shit (no matter how you vote) but to have some bureaucratic agency adding to it is just some sour shit. Do they think by sending some bs about their frivolous project will help garner votes?

Honestly looking at the card all they state as winners are the students, THEN the OP-RF residents, HA! Basically putting the taxpaying residents second, in other words, thank God I rent so I do not have to foot the bill for this shit. But hey I do vote and I do not appreciate such badgering, you do not steamroll someone into voting your way. All that breeds is resentment and then when election time comes up for local government positions in Oak Park, IL, those pissed off residents who still harbor that resentment will vote upon that convictions. Hopefully to appoint new Board members and not have things like this happen again.

A few points:

  • When you state “don’t be fooled” and state your points, unless you are a blogger like myself you want to word your points as if you are stating facts not opinion. Meaning “Actual pool cost is $21.m (Not “37.3m”) attitude much? Having an attitude does not win me over, ugly is just ugly, and I vote against it all the time.
  • The whole card or message is trying to frame this “us” mentality after they already went ahead and voted to try to move ahead with the project they wanted. It is on the ballot because the residents do not want it in the first place. The board did this on their own now they suffer for it.
  • Have you ever heard of an extensive street resurfacing project being voted on by residents, no? Exactly because something like that is necessary, this project is not. How will this benefit the taxpaying residents there is no mention or details if you have time to make two different flyers and send them out before the before the vote you have enough time to specifically state the benefits.
  • This card reveals a Freudian slip in the order they state the “winners” of this project by putting the TAXPAYERS, the resident last, they should have been first. In fact, if you are trying to win funding from someone in the real world you tell that group how it would benefit the community and/or the patrons, not how it would benefit you. Ask any kid their weight in gold when they are asking for a new car. The ones that are successful bring up how they will be less of a burden to their parents, there is no mention of benefits to them. The ones that are not successful are the ones stating how they are going cruising to hookup, pick up their friends to get high or go to underage parties that no parents are involved and there are tons of alcohol. Which is basically what this group is doing.
  • Quotation marks used throughout the whole presentation of the facts, just shows the level of frustration that is underlining this group’s efforts. I am kind of surprised this is coming from representatives of an educational institution but then again I am not.

I can vote in Oak Park, Il and I rent so this taxing really does not mean shit to me HAHA but I will vote no, so this group win or lose can suck it. Oh one more point they state the actual pool cost is 21.4millon, but in today’s day and age have you ever heard of any construction project coming in at or under the proposed budget? Yeah very rarely, and I doubt this project will be at just 21.4 million but I am not worried I am not paying for it.
