Failed Stick up attempt on the border of Oak Park, IL

More Crime on the border of Oak Park, IL and Chicago at Madison and Austin avenues. Does not seem to end however the victim was a concealed gun carrier and managed to shoot one of his assailants to avoid being robbed. Looks like that is what needs to be done to exist in Oak Park, IL, and Chicago, since what really needs to be done i.e.: Economic development is not being accomplished.

Unfortunately, this victim did not get the other scumbags it is bad enough these criminals tried to mug a grown man, could you imagine if this was a woman? Or how about an Older woman (since Oak Park is filled with them) being robbed?

Would that get the two communities working to developing opportunities in this borderline area to stem crime? Would the OP Police force get the equipment, manpower and probably assistance on getting the job done in keeping Oak Park, Il safe like it is advertised?

Most likely. There must be a reallyyyy violent crime to get the attention of the civil leaders of Oak Park, IL to divert their attention away from making money off of high rises to deal with this issue. Then only for about two seconds and then they are back to their money-making ways, while the rest of us must deal with the stark reality that crimes like this actually happen in Oak Park, IL

Here is the brief article that discusses the failed stick up attempt:

Construction on South Blvd another headache

There is another new development planned for South Boulevard great more traffic problems.  This is another pathway to destruction lead by the same idiot mayor who is trying to have Oak Park, Il under major construction on all major streets without a care to who it hurts. This article clearly states that the direction of this development has not taken into account the tenants of surrounding residences or businesses who would be negatively affected by this construction.

I mean shit you have a psychologist worrying about her “fragile’ patients to worries about developers abusing entitlements and flipping the property to new owners. This is what I like to call a basket full of fucking problems, and the mayor is like, not giving a shit neither is the board of trustees. What kind of soundbite is “I understand the concern, I really do..”  WTF??? That is dripping with sarcasm. I glad this shit is happening its like the people of stuck up Oak Park, Il and everyone else fooled to go along with these idiots are getting the payback for thinking they are better than everyone else. With all their progressive bullshit, with their false pretenses and tell you-what-to-do-because-I-own-a-home-fuckery.

I am glad I only rent and that the village trustees and Judas ass mayor is selling off Oak Park, Il bit by bit, they will probably sell off Hemingway’s home or museum for a high rise next! Logically how do you say you are the hometown of Frank Lloyd Wright with all these crappy tall gothic structures going up all over the place? No, you cannot, Oak Park, Il is slowly losing its identity and I am glad!

Here is the article talking about the South Blvd development:

New signs for Oak Park, Il to make things even more confusing.

Oh so Oak park, Il will get new signs to confuse people about parking her in Oak Park even more, isn’t there enough confusion as it is? You have people with Master’s degrees getting fucking confused trying to understand the current signage that is in place presently, if the new “test” signage is any indication the new signage will create even more problems.

This is the article showcasing the new signage “proposed” (meaning already approved by Oak Park, IL’s corrupt board of trustees): http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-park/news/ct-oak-parking-sign-pilot-tl-0323-20170317-story.html

This sign is just confusing and gives me a headache by just looking at it. It looks like a color key for either playing the new NBA Live for PS4 or a new Grand Theft Auto world map, yeah I used a Grand theft Auto reference, have you ever drive in Oak Park, IL? It makes you want to pick up a hooker, run over a couple slow ass pedestrians and start fights with smartass punks on the Chicago side while riding back over the fake boundary between Oak Park, IL and the Austin Area.

This new signage bullshit is just another reason to go all GTA on everyone. This will not consolidate signage around Oak Park it is another reason for Oak park, IL’s village board to spend money it does not have and another reason to tax the shit out of the property owners. Oh yeah, but I rent, only dog I have in this fight is the confusion I will have from trying to park around here.  To me this is another reason that Oak Park, Il is going straight to hell in regards to its reputation as a “nice” place to live.

PS: I tell everyone I meet and who will listen why not to move here and I have about 32 “converts” (yes I am keeping count) so far. Totally awesome!

The fleecing of Oak Park, IL

I love the new fleecing of Oak Park, Il’s downtown, I love the chaos it will bring. Screw the environmental bullshit, the “shade will kill trees” crap oh I love it, these are the representatives that the residents of Oak Park, Il voted in, doing this shit and the residents are getting what deserve what they get. Representatives who are pimping out downtown property to development companies that honestly are not in the wrong here, but are taking advantage of an opportunity that is presented to them by these elected representatives.

Isn’t that what the residents of Oak Park, Il teach their kids? When an opportunity is presented take it! I love seeing and hearing about these idiots planning events with face painting smores and nature tours…. Hahahaha what the fuck is that supposed to do? What kind of hippie-tree-hugging shit is that? Get a fucking real strategy like picketing the development companies’ offices or the homes of their employees or how about getting petitions for new elections for new representatives? Grow the fuck up or just accept that Oak Park, Il is slowly becoming little Chicago dipshits.

You already got fucked parking rules and crazy taxes for cheaper property assessments meanwhile the village is increasing looking like most of the residential section are stuck in the 1980s with paint jobs that mirror that time. Now you got a mayor that cannot wait to sell half of downtown away to developers increasing traffic problems and killing that nostalgic “feel” that Oak park, Il is clinging onto like a crackhead to his pipe. But hey just keep an “open mind” like your mayor said, hey you’re progressive Oak Park, Il congrats! But nothing is helping you save your idyllic hometown with this idiot as mayor. Hahhahahahaha Idiots aplenty!

The movement being lead by the lead sell out, the mayor of Oak Park, IL:

These are some articles that talk about the “rallies” the residents had, in comparison dogs with diarrhea would have been more effective making a statement than these fools:

Oak Park, IL election 2017: The ballot

Usually, I do not bother with politics but since the idiots at the village board in Oak Park, IL like to piss off everyone from seas to shining sea I have decided to at least find a link that discusses the upcoming elections. Obviously, these idiots must go as they are making decisions, not in the best interests of the taxpayers which includes all of us who rent or spend a dime in this shitty little village. Just go to the link and make a decision if you want to be shitted for a couple more years or you want a change from it.

  • Oak Park Public Library Board of Trustees
  • River Forest Village Trustee

Opposition to the Madison Avenue proposal in Oak Park, IL

Covered this before in my blog as well, the development in the area near Madison avenue in Oak Park, IL

Again the residents are not told about the construction of various properties around the village and the Dudley dumb dee Mayor of the village is trying to push another construction project ahead. Does he not live in this area, and the new construction will boost his property values.. nice. They are trying to build another grocery store in this area, like the Walgreens and Jewel down the street need competition, this is just another example of stupid construction and corrupt politics, whatever happened to “for the people by the people…”?

Obviously, the village government does not know how to ask the people of Oak Park, Il what they want and accept it, the village is becoming more and more like Chicago every day it is not funny. The people of Oak Park, Il really need one of those recall votes, or no confidence votes for this Mayor to get him out quickly, Oak park, Il will not be how the residents envision it anymore and I am surprised the State is allowing them to cause the type of traffic nightmare that you know will need to be fixed in 5 to 10 years with State and Federal dollars.

When all this Mayor (“No means YES!”) needs to do is listen to the people who elected him! Maybe all these groups that are opposing all these stupid projects individually that I have mentioned in this blog should come together and give the Mayor one big fight or Fuck You, either way combine efforts and get the Mayor out,

Here is the article talking about the opposition the Mayor faced regarding the proposed construction on Madison Avenue from the residents of Oak Park, Il who live in that area:

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
