BREAKING NEWS!!! FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE...

From the Office of Mayor Wrong E. Manual

As a result of an intensive 10 year study from the University of Chicargo, the city council has voted for the immediate removal of all automobiles,vans, trucks or similar devices from within the city. The study clearly shows that 100% of all accidents involving injury to pedestrians and motorists or their passengers are associated with self powered motorized conveyances.Therefore, the only sound remedy is the removal of all such machines from our community.

Effective on December 1, 2017, any person possessing or operating an automobile, van, truck or similar device within the city limits will be arrested on felony one charges of willful pubic endangerment under the new municipal code (under home rule exception). There will be no second chance.

New transportation permits will be available for single or multiple horse, mule or bicycle drawn carriages at a rate varying from $50-200 per year. There will be an additional fine for failure to remove animal feces on the roadway of $50 per incident.

Because of their ability to exceed new speed limits of 10 MPH, genetically engineered transportation animals are forbidden and if suspected, a DNA sample will be taken. If found in violation, an additional fine of $1,000.

For those citizens requiring handicapped exemptions, rickshaw allowances may be granted upon full vetting and approval. Prevailing applicants must demonstrate they cannot walk from the corner of State and Madison to clerk's desk at city hall without having a heart attack or stroke.

Regardless of conveyance form, a city sticker priced at $500 per year will still be required for each axle of a conveyance.

Existing boot and impoundment ordinances will remain in force as modified for the new forms of conveyances.

Stay tuned for more details... LOL!

    You won't be if you don't announce you are having a comment pulled that simply stated someone's opinion.

    I understand though that my tolerance for things that might be offensive is pretty high.

    Rep. didn't list source of income because form was hard to understand
    A Democratic legislator from the Northwest Side was paid $170,000 for work as a consultant to fellow Democrats during two years when he failed to list that work as a source of income on his required state ethics filings, records examined by the Chicago Sun-Times show. State Rep.

    I agree with you Deb. I'm still trying to figure out why Alexa thought it was okay to stereotype Ms. Kessem as a "dumb blonde" or typical blonde Republican. Then she prattled on about her grooming and dress. I guess if you wear pantsuits and pander to the far left,...

    I agree with you Deb. I'm still trying to figure out why Alexa thought it was okay to stereotype Ms. Kessem as a "dumb blonde" or typical blonde Republican. Then she prattled on about her grooming and dress. I guess if you wear pantsuits and pander to the far left, then you're a smart blonde in Alexa's world.

    Maybe she's jealous, you don't see blonde's going to the hair salon to have their hair dyed brown.

    I don't know about Alexa, but I love my natural blonde tresses. I'm in my mid 50's, glad that I don't have to dye it yet. Saves a lot of time and money.

    I'll find out more about Ms Kessem from reliable sources at some point in the future.

    MJ 1201b - No, I actually stopped reading what Allexa had to say after her assessment on how her being blond, wearing makeup and white pants made her a typical Republican. After those opening remarks, I couldn't take anything Allexa may have said seriously, even if she had good points to offer. So I just looked what Allexa had to say after these sexist/racist remarks, and it gets worse. This woman is a Nazi because she is a Republican? Nothing that follows that comment bears reading.
