  • Michael Archangel Same swamp but now restocked with new predators!

    @JJ - You pointed out no inconsistency. You have not provided any substantiation for your accusation of any sort. You made a claim, you then followed it up with a taunt and still have not backed up your words.

    It is my hope the moderators bounce you permanently for this. You cannot make unsubstantiated claims about people. It is wrong and it is libelous.

  • Jarvis John Trump WINS.. Again!!

    Heat too hot in the kitchen, MA? Talk about hyperbole. I was just accused of libeling an anonymous user on a neighborhood blog.

    Newsflash MA, there is a mute button. If you don't like my comments, feel free to use it.

Trash and Litter in Front of Apartment Bldg, 6832 Wayne and Farwell, SW Corner

I was doing a sweep of the area to pick up litter in the Wayne, Farwell, Lakewood area (6900 -7000). The accumulation of trash and litter in front of the apartment building at 6832 (Wayne and Farwell) was disgraceful. I attempted to call the Hirsch Management Company at the number listed on the posted sign and reached a heating and air conditioning company.

I was doing a sweep of the area to pick up litter in the Wayne, Farwell, Lakewood area (6900 -7000). The accumulation of trash and litter in front of the apartment building at 6832 (Wayne and Farwell) was disgraceful. I attempted to call the Hirsch Management Company at the number listed on the posted sign and reached a heating and air conditioning company. After doing an internet search, I found a management company in Evanston by that name with a different phone number. There was no answer and no voice mail. I will try again on Monday. If there continues to be no answer, I will drive up there Tuesday and talk to the management to have them address this issue.

    Must be comforting to be living in an alternate universe. “Real life experience?” These people wouldn’t know REAL life if it bit them in the butt. They either know nothing about the depts. they’d be heading, want to destroy them, and many will be using them as their personal piggy banks to enrich their businesses. One, when a Congressmen, insider-traded stocks for companies he then passed laws to benefit. One in charge of public education would withdraw Federal funding for public schools (Ben Franklin is spinning in his grave); one who’s supposed to protect voting rights opposed the Civil Rights Act—and will look the other way about DT’s and the other Cabinet members’ ethics and criminal violations. One sued the EPA 14 times as his state’s A.G., and won’t recuse himself from the cases still pending once he heads up the EPA. Another who knows nothing about housing would be in charge of deciding whether an affordable housing project in which DT owns 25% could be sold to a private developer to build pricier apts. or condos. Another charged with protecting labor would protect management instead (and doesn’t even believe in a minimum wage, much less raising it…then there’s that domestic violence complaint…). Then the guy who’d run Treasury took his loot from Goldman Sachs and started a bank that illegally foreclosed on veterans and the elderly.

    Foxes have “real life experience.” That doesn’t entitle them to guard the henhouse…or burn it down.
