Just Another...One Thousand Words

Just to assure you...

...Spring is really not far off.

While someone says a photo of a coffee cup at a local business may be worth 1,000 words, I say:

Look at this: it is the current Rogers Park, AND it is the old Rogers Park...it is the present and it is history, all in one.

Okay, Blame it on the Winter Snow!

No evening rush of voters as polls close

Here in Illinois, in the primaries, a voter is required to vote by party.

It's just a playground, like the photo above!

Now, I am certain, if Abraham Lincoln could put his one or two cents in, (yes, pun intended), he would have a few words to say in Springfield.

It is not the American way, to control the ultimate vote, as it is done in Illinois.

By virtue of this manner of voting, we have begat criminals. Find George Ryan for yourself on Google.

As a matter of fact, find out what you can about Mayor Richard M. (I affectionately call him Dick'em) Daley, Dick Durbin, and former Senator Barack Hussein Obama, who sometime back, declared himself a Kenyan by birth, thus making him illegal to be the President of the United States of America!

It's all there, when you take the time to look for it yourself.

If, and when, you voted today (as many of you registered voters did not), you will find, of course, in the mainstream media, (Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times), that Alexi Giannoulias is the leader in the race for Governor of the State of Illinois. I am half-Greek, and I would not vote for him for all the saganaki in Athens!

If you voted for him, I pity you for not doing your homework.

And, as many of you did not do your homework on the candidates, I would, very politely, ask that you do it again. And, AGAIN, before the election in April, until you understand just what some of these politicians are trying to do to you.

You enjoy your freedoms, correct? Keep hold of them by voting out the frauds.

It is Time Now

RE: the Followers

I thank each and every one of you who read these posts, or just look at my photography and sometimes say...Yeah.

In the followers list, there is someone who does not want to be there...call him the 'Chess piece'.

He has e-mailed me, a 'chess piece', calling me a name I feel I do not deserve...RACIST. Because I do not agree with his politics, apparently.

I sent him back the instructions (from Google) regarding how to remove oneself as a follower.

He is still there (CREEPY)...as a follower...because he cannot seem to get Bill Morton, who set up his blog, to do an 'Un-follower-up'. (Bill is lazy about things like that, because they don't pay!)

Now, I followed his blog, but gave up, as he has not posted anything in TEN months! This 'chess piece' has aligned himself with someone we can call "the would-be king"--that would be your friend Barry.

I might add the 'chess piece' is a long-standing member of SEIU 880 here in Chicago.

That, in itself, states a volume, doesn't it?

He also has replaced me as Treasurer of Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce (I held a dual office, so someone else has replaced me as Secretary--isn't that nice now? It takes TWO to replace one, and then, I am not truly replaced, am I, because I was the 'Graphics Artist' too!)

I also photographed for him and reworked pieces for his website. No pay, of course, as a 'friend'.

I feel used! All work, NO PAY!

Here is the website page (no longer available) that I designed for him:

Go there now and see what I developed has become under these two 'faux-maestros'.

Ethics? Daley? HUH?

Top ethics aide to Daley accused of poor judgment quits

Mark Meaney (sorry for the poor capture, not much on this guy)--but he really should change his name!

A top ethics aide to Mayor Richard Daley has resigned in the face of allegations that he and his boss used poor judgment in the handling of a student intern's sexual harassment complaint.

Mark E. Meaney resigned his $146,940-a-year position as first deputy in the mayor's Office of Compliance. He had joined Anthony Boswell to run the compliance office in 2007, which Daley created to promote a culture of good conduct among city workers.

"It was a privilege to have been part of something that had never been tried before, corporate-style compliance in municipal government," Meaney wrote Tuesday in an email to the Tribune.
"Mayor Daley should be applauded in his efforts at true reform. Unfortunately, fear and blame seem to be winning over culture change."

Meaney's comments seemed to be aimed at the Inspector General's Office, which has been criticized in court filings for allegedly creating a "culture of fear" where workers are reluctant to report honest mistakes for fear they will be punished.

Meaney said he was returning to the private sector and had no regrets.


It's coming, isn't it, Dick'em? They're coming for you.

Even your father had more of an ethic about him, didn't he?

Can you feel it, the rumbling?

That's Richard M. Daley, rolling over in his grave, disturbed by the so-called "ethics" of his son, who seems to have forgotten him.

Dick'em Daley: RESIGN, now, and go home to your wife, who needs you so much these days.

Unless you'd rather be out chummin' with Huberman?

Daley's just glad it's not HIS time...YET!

Mayor Daley: Alderman's guilty plea 'very sad'

Carothers had been one of his staunchest supporters

“It’s very sad,”
Daley said today.

“All public officials — whether appointed or elected — have public trust. You have a responsibility of handling the public money, hard-earned taxpayers’ money. And it’s very disheartening to see what he pled to.”

Asked whether the plea jibes with the Carothers he knew, Daley said, “You don’t know. No one could figure this out. It’s really sad. It’s not only sad for a family but sad for the taxpayers as well.”


Could someone please have the guts to bring out the TRUTH about Daley?

More Lost Grandeur of Rogers Park

What was once a source of entertainment for residents of Rogers Park is now part of the parking lot of the heavily-unoccupied Gateway Centre, a project heavily-backed by Ald. Joe Moore.

"We the People..."

Early draft of the Constitution found in Philadelphia

Researcher Lorianne Updike Toler was intrigued by the centuries-old document at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

On the back of a treasured draft of the U.S. Constitution was a truncated version of the same document, starting with the familiar words: "We The People. . . ."

They had been scribbled upside down by one of the Constitution's framers, James Wilson, in the summer of 1787. The cursive continued, then abruptly stopped, as if pages were missing.

A mystery, Toler thought, until she examined other Wilson papers from the Historical Society's vault in Philadelphia and found what appeared to be the rest of the draft, titled "The Continuation of the Scheme."


This document is 174 years OLDER than the former Constitutional Law "lecturer" (NOT full professor!) who now holds the office of President of the United States.

Yet he and those of his ilk continue to ignore it.


Snowy Start for Voters

Be careful (HOW YOU VOTE) out there!
