  • Right and a corresponding greater police presence to combat it. And they do an awesome job. Still, if only the Festival would go away, all crime everywhere would probably stop.

    No one is questioning the ability of CPD or questioning whether they do their job well or not, they obviously do.
    But even they can't keep up with the crime spike during the crime fest. And I don't want to have to continuing paying taxes toward a festival that attracts crime and violence and always has.

    Sigh....yes, yes, I know, I'm a racist.

    Roeser's Bakery: A Chicago Favorite Since 1911
    Posted on June 28, 2016 at 11:45AM by Amy Bizzarri For so many Chicago families, it wouldn't be a celebration without a colorful, three-layer buttercream cake from Roeser's Bakery on North Avenue in Humboldt Park. In 1911, John Roeser Sr. opened the doors of his American dream: a bakery filled with sugary delights!

    Luis Gutierrez Paid His Wife Over $300,000 From Campaign Funds
    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D., Ill.) has paid his wife and daughters hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign's coffer since 2010, according to campaign finance data. Gutierrez, who was first elected to Congress in 1993, brought his wife, Soraida Gutierrez, onto his campaign's payroll six years ago to act as his office manager, treasurer, and fundraiser.

    Did that happen in this thread, James? I don't see it. Looks to me like you enjoy inventing whole snippets of conversations to further your own agenda.

  • Gutierrez presides over the most gerrymandered congressional district in the union, a thin "C" shape, designed to lasso as many Latino voters as possible and jam them into a single district [instead of the two or three districts], thus depriving Latinos of their full electorate strength. Gutierrez's district is so safe for him, he uses his donor's campaign money to pad his household's income. Does Gutierrez think Latinos are cool with this, to trade Latino votes for personal gain?

This Is The Fourth Of July Weekend, Remember To Hang Your American Flag With Pride

I know with all the problems we are having now days, it is hard sometimes to remember what America stands for. I believe we will, as always triumph over the evil that has occurred in our land. I ask you to join me in hanging our American flag for all to see and show we still have pride in our country. Peace will prevail over evil and I don't know of a better way to show it to every one that passes by.

    Love that flag over in the HP lagoon. It's downright fitting

How did the meeting with Charlie Billups and Wild One go?

The post is gone but I'd love to hear about the meeting between the two? Last I saw Wild One seemed to have accepted the invite to meet. Looking forward to hearing from either, both or anyone that was there.

  • RAKARWOWSKI RETIRED CITY WORKER, CLEANING UP HUMBOLDT PARK

    TT, Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, I was laughed at when I complained at a HPAC meeting about the music being played so loud at the Sunday Bongo fests that I could hear it on Kedzie. Now I am laughing at your complaint about RF music years ago. I am not surprised no one called to complain because apparently you are the only one to have heard it. I bet James and Charlie heard it also now to think about it.

    James and Charlie hear only the racist voices inside their heads.
