So tell me. When are we going to throw out Daley and his crony and corruption infested political machine?

 

This City government is one of the most unabashedly corrupt entities in the history of politics and nobody so much as bats an eye. The fact that this sort of behavior is allowed to continue, for years and years on end, at the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars makes me ashamed that Im from Chicago and is a big reason why I'll never reside within the city limits again.

I've got some news for you, this type of thing is going on in EVERY large city in this country, bar none. Probably occurs in most small cities too, just on a smaller scale. Since this limits the number of places in which you can reside with civic pride, I might suggest a visit to ol' Mr. Rourke and his dimunitive sidekick.

I'll agree that it is going on in almost every large city...but my personal impression is that there are very, very few cities that rival Chicago in that regard.

Right with you on this one. What makes it worse is that it's just accepted as if it was as much a part of Chicago's culture as our sports teams, museums, neighborhoods, food, nightlife.....etc........etc.

Here's something to ponder...what will happen first...a world series trophy on the north side, or a clean city government in Chicago?

Neither. The sun will supernova and destroy the galaxy before either of those 2 impossibilities happen.
