Oak Park, IL blog: what’s going on?

No, I am not dead yet! Nor have I have been deported! No, actually I took the month off, but not for Martin Luther King Jr day, because my buddy MA Pro turned me onto Adsense a while ago, for the Blogger.com section of Oak Park, Il blog. Since I have been putting out blogs like I work for a newspaper, I said why not? However, when I signed up for Adsense a couple months ago but have heard nothing else from them so I took the month to see what will happen. I am still dedicated in my hatred of Oak Park, IL this village is more annoying than a crack addict asking you for money in a Walmart parking lot, so I will keep posting.

But all this break was, is a test of the Adsense approval policy so hopefully, we will see something soon. Ah ha! the silver lining is I am back and will be posting more.

PS: This is not why I have been on twitter, that is because of trolls or one specifically but that is another story/post.

Working on YouTube for the blog and me!

I really have not played with or tried out YouTube outside of listening to the occasional song or posting a video about Oak Park happening that I have been lucky to catch on film. Recently I have been putting together playlists for different occasions like when I need a block of songs for school work or even when I feel a bit WESTSIDE!!!

Below is a sample I have been working on as it pertains to my You Tube channel which is of course under my name listed on the blog. Enjoy some west side feelings right here:

Westside!!!!

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:

The Fenwick High School lawsuit from Oak Park, IL

No matter what side of the debate you are on in regards to the Fenwick high school law suit you have to starch your head and wonder why this loss to Plainfield over a botched call is going to court. On the news, the parents say these kids deserve to be there, nice like the Plainfield kids or any other team that lost in the playoffs deserved to be there. Just Fenwick.

This is, of course, the message, the lesson they are teaching these kids, not only in Fenwick’s community but Plainfield and every other high school they will play the next season. “Watch out for Fenwick they don’t like the call they will sue!” Now, at this point is that what they deserve? Maybe, because they opened the floodgates and gave everyone and their mother the opportunity, the reason to do so. There are other questions that arise because of this lawsuit, probably ones Fenwick did not think of.

*What does it say when Overzealous parents sue for botched calls in a game?

*What if next season every team that Fenwick play and wins over, sues over any self-perceived violation they think is wrong?

*How does this change the meaning of sportsmanship then?

*How does this show these kids “The American Way” of fighting the good fight when you have been wrong?

*Does the Plainfield team have the right to countersue for defaming their character as a team?

*Do the referees in the game sue Fenwick for defaming their character and judgment on the field?

*How does this embolden the kids on Fenway’s football team when they do not agree to the calls made during future games?

*Did any of the people involved in this lawsuit think of any of these questions?

*Did any of the people involved in this lawsuit think of how it shows the depth (or lack of) their moral character, the Fenwick community or even Oak Park, Il to the world?

*If they lose their lawsuit, or win it, are they ready for all the “crybaby” taunts they will receive in the future?

No, because they think they are better here in Oak Park, Il than anyone else, anywhere else, and if life isn’t fair they should sue so it can be fair, for them. Only them, because they unlike the rest of us, deserve it.

Here’s a link to a Chicago Tribune article discussing more about the situation:

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.

From Oak Park, IL to the Chicago Cubs World Series parade downtown

Damn I was downtown, at the Cubs parade I could not get any pictures though, because I was packed in with another 5 million people (Cubs fans) and soon as the double deckers came around it was like a wave of people crushing down on my ass! It was worse than the Blackhawks parades, which I left work to go see, yeah I straight told the boss and he was like “hell yeah” and I got some pictures from that but this Cubs parade? No way honey! I realized that I also could not leave my spot otherwise I would not have seen the players and the other people around me would have definitely took it! So I did not drink anything, I was so dehydrated!

Anyway like I have said beforehand there is nothing going on in Oak Park, IL with any Chicagoland sports teams, nothing, absolutely nothing. No honors, no special events, just eh, I mean they will spend 40 million on a pool that their high school swim team can only use, but other than that, it is just dry a stale sliced white bread.

<> on November 2, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois.

But how about those Cubbies? After 71 years of last going to the World Series, after 108 years of last winning a World Series, then staging a comeback after being down 3-1 in the series, then blowing that lead in Game 7, man it was a story for Hollywood! I really enjoyed going downtown and talking with the other fans and hearing how long they were fans, their experiences with family when going to games. It was truly a fun experience talking and cheering with the fans seeing the players go by. Then I had to go home and damn it was crazy you would think Rahm would have gotten his shit together and worked this out, the CTA Lines (trains) and platforms were too damn crowded. Union Station was crazy people were everywhere I tried to take the Metra home but I thought twice and took the cramped blue line, with again tons of Cubs fan.

It was a great experience even though it was chaotic and disorganized (i.e.: muddy fields of Grant Park) it was a real “high” and tons of fun it was great that people were able to come together and have a peaceful celebration. Of course, the downer was coming back to Oak Park, IL. What is the best way I can illustrate how the change of energy, the change of emotion from coming from the Cubbies World Series parade back to Oak Park, IL? Oh, it is like drinking, dancing with a bunch of great friends at a club/bar and then having some random stranger come up to you and punch you hard as they can in the gut and then they stand over you saying you deserve it. Yeah, it was a real buzzkill, to the rest of the Cub fans I hope to do this again NEXT year! YEAH!!!!! Wooooooooooooo

Expanding the Oak Park, IL blog

Update on Oak Park, IL blog I am now on blogger (google +) and Tumblr it is very hard to publish the different blog entries because of how each site is set up. Although WordPress is linked to work with Facebook, google + and Tumblr the problem I find is that google + publishes all the entries I schedule on WordPress only to me. Therefore, I have to either go into google + and make a public copy of the entry that is on my page, or repost the whole thing again through blogger.com.

Which of course is a lot more work, adds like duplicates to my posts on the google + page and then just messes up my Oak Park, IL blog logo that I made. Ugh. Don’t worry I am keeping both for two reasons, WordPress has the technology and savvy to make the blog posts look good and the design is sleek, google + has exposure due to being am email account site as well. I am not the type to just choose one over the other I like to have my cake and eat it too. Besides I have followed a sh*t load of good blogs on WordPress that I will follow on google+. Hopefully that mean as (translate into) more readers for those who I have followed as well as my own blog on WordPress.

Although it’s called blogger.com the address is blog spot, (huh?) don’t worry though, you will be reading the same posts from WordPress if you follow me on this address: http://oakparkilblog.blogspot.com/ Same punk attitude same topics, same blog posts.

Allyonsy!
