Oak Park IL related: Rahm Emanuel out

So I go to all this work to make a sign to post to have the people of the city of Chicago to vote against Rahm and then his ass bows out? Good. Between my work schedule and hanging out it would have been hard to post these suckers in the first place. I got tired of this dudes fake tears anyway. There is a huge pool of candidates to choose from all democrats, great time for a third party to decide to run since the party is this fractured.

Going back to rahm funny how he was like “Chicago is such a great city… residents are safe here.. etc etc” and the first press conference he does Rahm states he is leaving the city! Nice way to tell the entire world you were full of shit the last 4 years as mayor. Rahm blew smoke up everyone’s collective asses just for power was the real motive behind saying such lies, not because he really wanted to change anything.

Well, I am glad he dropped out because it drains the local swamp of a long time bullshitter. I am not saying any of candidates left are fantastic but how bad can they do compared to this upshot that is leaving? Now if we can get periwinkle out….

Pop tax in Cook County: Oak Park, IL

So in the area of Cook county, encompasses Chicago, and the neighboring suburbs like Oak Park, Il. Recently the Cook county board tried to put a county tax on sugary drinks to cover a big hole in the county budget. First, it was blocked by local businesses who took the local government to court then crook county won on appeal to have the tax go into effect. This tax increases .68 cents on each 2-liter bottle of soda pop, etc and so on.

Everyone from the crook county commissioner Toni Preckwinkle to that jackass Rahm Emanuel all is championing this tax to fill the holes in their pay to play budgets. There is usually not a day goes by that I see Rahm talking about some new after-school program when the state education budget is not set. Or some other shady ass move like Rahm using tif funds for the renovation of Navy Pier.

I mention all this because even though I am an avid water drinker if I have a party or company over and need to have pop (even for mixed drinks). I have to go far out my way to either will or Lake counties to get my needs satisfied. Meaning that all the local businesses that stated they would lose customer dollars in Cook county are actually correct.

People in Oak Park, Il, for example, are paying for the stupidity of voting for “the machine” that simply does not give a fuck about the taxpayers here. It just adds to the stupid shit people in Oak Park, Il like myself have to deal with from dietary changes, to party supply adjustments, to budgetary eliminations, all so unnecessary if these career politicians were required to balance the budget of our local governments. All of it unnecessary if these career politicians were voted out.

Ps: I have made signs, wallpapers for anyone who agrees. Have fun printing them out and showing everyone how you feel.😉
