Rahm Caves to the Koch Brothers and Sells The People Out

Rahm talked tough to quiet people down and then he sold us out. Even the mayor of Detroit stopped the dumping in his city and now Rahm wants to give them years to cover it and even let them burn this filthy stuff in Chicago. It's time we tar and feather him and run him out of town with every alderman that votes with him on this.

Rahm talked tough to quiet people down and then he sold us out. Even the mayor of Detroit stopped the dumping in his city and now Rahm wants to give them years to cover it and even let them burn this filthy stuff in Chicago. It's time we tar and feather him and run him out of town with every alderman that votes with him on this.

Faced with public outrage about gritty black dust blowing through Chicago’s Southeast Side, Mayor Rahm Emanuel talked of forcing towering mounds of petroleum coke out of Chicago and outlawing new piles with costly regulations.

But the fine print of a zoning ordinance unveiled Tuesday by the Emanuel administration opens the door for greater use of the high-sulfur, high-carbon refinery byproduct in the city.

Under changes outlined at a hearing of the City Council’s powerful zoning committee, companies would be allowed to store and burn petroleum coke in Chicago if “consumed onsite as part of a manufacturing process.” The special exemption also would allow companies to burn stockpiles of coal.

The changes appear to be a step back from Emanuel’s tough rhetoric about petroleum coke, also known as petcoke. In February, the mayor told local television and radio stations he wanted to drive petcoke operators out of town.

    I get it that Americans are supposed to have no problem with capitalists sitting around, doing nothing, making money on other people's labor. But it seems like that's not enough for them. They want other people to be miserable. These guys already have billions of dollars so that they and their descendants will never have to work. But they still want to poison our air and water to earn what must be like pennies to us. What's up with that? Do you have to lose your humanity when you get rich?
