Re: “Skip the State of the Union address and read David Remnick's story on Obama

The State of the Union should re-named the "Shame of a Nation" speech. I wonder how many politicians will 'boo' the President or yell out in disrespect. But hey!...at least fist fights don't break out like they do in Europe and some Asian countries.

Re: “In Chicago, charter schools remain untouchable

It should be obvious, by now, that the "powers that be" want Charter Schools for the Urban society so Public schools can be kept for the Suburban districts. Minority education will be privatized while suburban schools remain public with a democratically elected school board.

That's the "Plan". It should be obvious, ...now.

Re: “Mayor Rahm finds his inner Woody Guthrie

Quote from article : "The TIF tax is a surcharge the city adds to your property tax bill." I suppose if I didn't pay the property taxes on the house I live in, the Cook County would take away the house & I'd be homeless in Chicago. *don't I get a rim shot?*

Re: “What has Emanuel done so far about racial segregation?

Long story short: Let's just call Chicago 'The city that DOESN'T work'.

Re: “Did you read about Republicans, street-parking privatization, and Sarah Palin?

I thought the city was to suppose to own the streets. Does this mean the gangs will own them? I mean, how the heck does a city privatize public streets? This makes no sense!

Chicago lost over 180,000 Black citizens. Where did they go?... who knows, so expect more school closings which will affect more minority students. :(

Re: “The Chicago manual of school closings

If the Mayor & the Corporate Bd. of Ed. make future schools highly selective, (privatized & charter), what schools will the un-selective students go to?
This makes no sense! Chicago seems to be becoming a 'selective' city. :( So much for Democracy.

Re: “Keeping up with the Jones high school plans

Charter school, barter school! Let's face it, the Chicago "Public" Schools will never be the same in the future. Once the Public schools are gone, well most anyway, people will have no "choice" but to enroll in a charter. That's not school choice. That's a Dictatorship!

Just like Detroit, [Public Acts 4].
