Re: “The Lincoln Yards TIF will benefit development firm Sterling Bay—but cost Chicagoans

You should check out the meat by-products transfer station, in August. I'll give you $50 if you can walk up to a truck and briefly touch it for one second.......without puking. If a man can get up the gumption to drive one of those for a living, there can be no sympathy for anyone who remains unemployed.

Shoplifter = best sex, ask any cop or judge.

Re: “The Lincoln Yards TIF will benefit development firm Sterling Bay—but cost Chicagoans

Wanna know where all the affordable housing is? Wanna know why we have a pension crisis? Wanna know why preachers dressed like cartoon characters get more press than elected officials? TIFs are what all the rich people think about but never talk about. TIFs are what the "major" news outlets never ever bring up, because they are in on the scheme. The few "progressive authors" that do speak out always keep their effort short and vague, and always allude to criminal culpability but never actually investigate, only castigate. This gives their readership the illusion that something is happening, but in reality, absolutely nothing is happening. Nothing. All this TIF talk is just a little smoke for your ass, if you have any room in there for more.

Re: “Archive dive: how grassroots groups around Chicago put police abolitionist ideas into practice

A self imposed curfew would do the same thing. If everyone would just stay home for a while there would be an end to innocent victim shootings. Best part about my idea is that it costs nothing. It would actually save you some steep funeral expenses. Read a book or something.

Re: “After a 2016 slump, Divvy turned a record profit in 2017

For what it's worth. Also, until you either call BCBS's contribution either an advertising expense or a corporate bailout, the word "profit" should not appear in this or any other story about this fantasy called bikeshare. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXX423ErY1…

Re: “More than 100 people showed up at a public meeting in order to save the Hideout

They built that huge building around Gene and Georgetti's, the much loved $100 steak joint. It's not like they haven't done it already.

Re: “Markham firefighter sues Chicago cops for false arrest

Sure, because everybody marches en mass across lawns and roads chanting, chanting only peaceful chants. Because that's normal. Nobody wins playing the "provoke the police" game, but there are no shortage of fools to play it. I managed to keep trash off my lawn for 20 years and never attracted the attention of the police. I must not be chanting properly. Been watching the news a long time and one things for sure, if the gang/preachers sanctioned the marching-chant, they would have gone as unmolested as the drug peddlers 2 blocks away. Permission for chanting marches doesn't come from the police.
