    @Pedro Garciano - But that has nothing to do with Infowars. Stay on topic. Do not deflect from the issue.

  • Pedro Garciano Defeat globalism!

    MA, Breitbart and Infowars report what's going on with Debbie Wasserman Schultz (for example) but the main stream media hide it from you. They select what to tell you, and how to tell it to you, all in compliance with an agenda.
    CNN, MSNBC, etc. are not news channels anymore. They're "activist" channels.
    Remember how very biased they were during election season? Wikileaks revealed their plans.

    nothing here talks about "haves" being better than "have nots " - I talked about moral compass and pointed out "have nots" failure to comprehend the word "moral" and "appropriate" moral compass. People like Trump fall into the "have nots" because of his lack of moral compass -

    My comment was not economical - it was all about how to respect and properly treat people.

  • in what way is Trump a "have not"?

Why did Kelly Cassidy not report for?

I was disturbed to read in today's Tribune that our State Assembly representative Kelly Cassidy (14th District, which includes Rogers Park) did not report for work on Tuesday and Wednesday. She was one of a disturbingly long list of state representatives who did not show up. As a result, the Assembly was forced to cancel sessions both days because it was unable to meet quorum. I like Cassidy and have voted for her, but I want to know if she had a good reason for not showing up to do the work we elected her to do. Particularly this week, which is possibly the most important week in recent Assembly history.

    Well, the important thing is that Cassidy clearly could be counted on to show up for the final vote. I never had any doubt about that, nor about her stance on the issues. Again, I like her and have voted for her. But absenteeism in the Assembly is clearly a problem, and I didn't want to excuse my own representative for not showing up when she was supposed to. Perhaps she knew that there would not be a quota and therefore decided not to travel down the Springfield, or perhaps she had another very valid reason; but obviously most other reps were present and only a group of twenty or so, including Cassidy, decided not to attend. All state reps should always be present, if only to set an example.

    But anyone who was closely following the news this week was aware that Madigan's decision to hold the vote on Thursday was the result of absentee members earlier in the week. The decision to vote on Thursday was a necessity stemming from absenteeism, not the original plan.

    As long as Illinois tax payers are blind to the fact that we undertax the rich and borrow to meet state obligations, then we will forever be faced with tax increases for all as the bitter solution.

    As long as Illinois tax payers are blind to the fact that we undertax the rich and borrow to meet state obligations, then we will forever be faced with tax increases for all as the bitter solution.

    Then we can continue to fight among ourselves and blame each other. Civil servants vs teachers vs suburbanites vs city dwellers and one racial/ethnic group against another. We need to cut services for this group and that group...the disabled, the homeless, the arts, schools where mostly kids of color go, the colleges where my kid doesn't go, all colleges because I or my kids are already educated, young vs old and on and on until the sheep look up.

    Why do you think the wealthiest invest to control government? So it can benefit them!

    Look nationally at who is occupying the office of the president and follow the money! You have a billionaire as governor. Why is he being an obstructionist and what are his interests? Then think 16 shots Rahm.
