Re: “Alderman Proco Joe calls for 'slushless' TIF district at Lathrop Homes

No one pays attention to Proco Joe except the idiot dilettantes in Wicker Park, who love him so.

Re: “WBEZ and DNAinfo repudiate reporter accused of fabrication

Citing Gawker as a legitimate news source blows any credibility this story had.

Re: “The Washington Post takes Amy Schumer to task—and takes it too far

Amy Schumer is only guilty of one thing, apologizing. Probably here publicity weasel conned her into it. As to the two fuzzy headed academics who wrote that tripe, they should go back under the slime coated rock they came out from. My apologies to slime.

Re: “Hey, 40th Ward—do us a favor and ditch Alderman O'Connor

All incumbent aldermen must go. Not one earned the privilege to serve. If you want real change, vote them all out.

Re: “An editorial endorsement for . . . anyone but Rahm!

Well, it is nice to see that no one cares that we, the tax payers, get stuck for the bill of two elections. That is the progressive way, soak the tax payer by wasting money. How about this- find worthy candidates, back them with money and people, and run them. Two former aldermen (Chicago's modern gangsters) and two non starters are not worthy candidates.

Re: “When you call someone a jagoff, what exactly are you trying to say?

Some years back, a professor of etymology wrote a book titled "Nigger". The book delved into the background of the word. The cover of the book was black with gray or silver print. Cries of racism and other ugliness ensued. People wanted the book banned. Even when it was revealed that the professor was African American, people were still appalled. The professor never backed down. The book was never pulled off shelves.

Re: “Alderman Joe Moore explains his choice of beer and support for Rahm

Joe Moore was never a reformer. A true reformer would never be a Chicago Democrat. Moore is part and parcel of the Chicago Crime Family, the Democratic Party. He and the rest of the aldermen should be replaced. Not one is worthy of reelection. Unfortunately Chicago is populated by low information dullard voters and gullible dullard journalists who propagandize for the crime family members.
