An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before,
but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D!
No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that.

Compared to the.. lying us into an unjust war,trampling our constitutional rights with secret,illegal wiretaps,outing CIA agents,MORE DEFICIT SPENDING than any other administration in history after they inherited a surplus, not keeping us safe before Sept.11th., massive tortue scandal,telling us everything is GREAT with the economy Bush administration.

Compared to all of that?. HELL YEAH President Obama has a friend in me.

BTW I would love a public option in the health insurance reform.

No Obama fan here. As far as police protection, we should gather and march in front of the 19th ward. That's how some citizens in this city get what they want. march, carry signs and get on TV. Of course, we won't have the reverends backing us but still the same, Ginger and her predecessor Matt might get the idea.

LAUREN McGOVERN UPDATE:

Good morning,

The neurologist was in to see Lauren late yesterday. Her EEG showed that she is not having seizures. She is still "neuro-storming" and will be put on a medication to help with that. She is off all of her sedation meds and will be re-evaluated by her neurologist again later today.

I would like to thank all of you for everything that you have done for us. The beautiful banner out in front of our house touched my heart beyond words! Your thoughtfulness and generousity is very much appreciated. Lauren continues to show us each day that she is ready to fight. Your prayers for a miracle are needed!

We thank you!

10:45 a.m.-

Thank you for your reply. You bring up some valid points. I also appreciate your first amendment right. Hopefully you will appreciate mine. Let's go through this piece by piece.

#1- Lying to the people so we can participate in an unjust war. Weapons of mass destruction, halliburton, oil, etc. I'm not a military man, and I'm not a college scholar. But here is my question, what makes it unjust? Over 2500 military personnel lost there lives, for us to get involved in WW2. What did you think would happen when 3000 non-military civilians lost their lives. If you want to talk unjust, how about our involvement in a civil war in a foreign country.

#2- Not keeping us safe before 9/11? If my math is correct President Bush had 9 months to figure that one out. I do believe there were a few attacks during the previous administration. Then you have a problem with the measures taken to prevent another attack of such magnitude? You claim infringement on your constitutional rights. Speaking of.

#3- Bush's deficit spending, Clinton's surplus. This statement leads me to believe you are not verse on the U.S. constitution. That's O.K. I'm not judging you. Most people I encounter at work, or in public have the same lack of knowledge of the most important document in our country. Article I, section 7 states "All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose, or concur with amendments as on other bills."
Now the only options a president has when this bill is presented is to sign, or return with objections. Now here's the great part. Congress has the option to ignore the objections and put the bill to a vote. If the bill gets 2/3's of the vote in the House, and the Senate, guess what. Yep, it becomes law, their is nothing the president can do about it. The only absolute power our president has is "Declaration of War". So now you know. You can not blame a president for any deficit, nor can you praise any president for a surplus. That praise and blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the congressional majority. Now, you can use that knowledge when voting for a Senator, or District Representative.

#4- Last, but not least healthcare. I will have to leave my comment on that one later. I have to take my daughter to the park now. I will be back later, and I do appreciate your thoughts on the question presented.

You must have been one of the weeeping, crying fans kissing the feet of your new savior when he appeared in Grant Park the day he was elected.

Newsweek called him a "god" and he himself promised a new Kingdom here on earth.

Your argument is that Obama is better than Bush. Really? Your home was invaded by secret wiretaps? The ONE CIA agent who was "outed," was that a member of your family? You just return from the war in Iraq? Suffer from torture did you?

The fact is, none of these things affected you personally. I am sure I served more time in Iraq than you did. So go blow your silly arguments out your ass.

Obama should be doing a better job than any President in history. After all, you people have made him your "god." The fact is, he is failing and fading fast.

When Obama was in Germany last year, I happened to be on the ONLY base he visited. He wanted to go into the hospital for a photo op with our wounded. Tremendous pressure was brought to bear on the CO to allow this asshole to bring in his cameras and campaign toadies to film him grinning next to soldiers in the ICU.

But God (the real One) bless the CO who refused. So Obama went his merry way and did not even stop in to shake hands. After all, the ONLY thing your god wanted was a photo op.

Your god will end up where all false gods go. When that happens toadies like you will disavow any knowledge of him. You'll be quivering with shame and fear as you loudly proclaim, "I NEVER voted for him!"

Doesn't matter who is in office. They all lie. Democrat, Republican, whoever they lie. Enough of career politicians please. Term limits for them all. It is what is good for the politician not his constituents. You can argue, blog whatever they all lie. Vote them all out and put in new blood.

As far as who picks the movies for the parks the director of that said park has list of movies they can show. No Disney movies as they charge the park district to show them.

j.o.b. said...

O.K. 10:45- sorry about the delay.

Now let's move on to health care. I know this is the hottest topic. I have not read the bill yet. I'm still trying to find the right website. However I know I'm not alone. Even the leader of this country, looking to pass this bill as quickly as possible, has admitted to not reading it. So I just have a few simple questions, that I'm hoping could get answered

First- If passed, we would have a governmental ran national heathcare system. Private insurance companys would still be allowed to exist. I believe this is what you were referring to when you mentioned "options". My question is how will malpractice suits work? I'm guessing that doctors under this plan will no longer have to purchase their own insurance. Plus from what I understand, sueing any kind of government agency is pretty frustrating.

Second- I believe that a lack of resposibility leads to a lack of pursuing excellence. Do you think doctors will pursue their chosen profession with as much passion when they are government employees? I think they would probably be paid based on a scale, instead of their skill,or knowledge.I'm sure there's a few employees at the post office, social security office, etc. that would agree with this statement. How many government employees are there that try to excel at there profession? How many are there that do just enough to not get fired?

Third- From my understanding, Employers will have the right to opt out of ther employee coverage plans. Is this true? If so it will cost the employer $2500 for the option, which with save them 10's of thousands a year in contibutions. I'm guessing at least half of us can say good-buy to our option of our current plan.


Fourth- This is the most important. Where will the money come from? Now we all heard the campaign promises. " No middle class citizen, who makes under $250,000 a year, will see their taxes increased." Thank god it only took 6 and 1/2 months to go back on that one. Like a band-aid. Do it quick. That's what I say. This past Sunday on CBS's face the nation, white house economist Larry Summers was asked about raising the taxes of the middle class. His quote- "It is never a good idea to absolutely rule things out, no matter what." Then on ABC's this week, treasury secretary Timothy Geither said "We have to bring these deficits down very dramatically and that's going to require some very hard choices."

So, I guess that's where we're at.

Hey 2:51- Thank you for your response as well. I am happy that you voted. However, I disagree with the comment about bitching. Not only is it my right to question our leaders, it is also my duty. Don't forget that they work for us. I promise to never ask you to not exercise your rights under the 15th amendment. But please don't ask me to not exercise my rights afforded me by the first amendment.

Not an Obama fan. I did not vote for him. I have no faith in his socialist agenda for our country. My father fought for our great country in WW II. I am sure he is rolling in his grave due to our freedom about to be taken away by the Government. We don't need the Gov't interfering in our lives. What's worse is now when you try to voice your opinion, your first amendment right of free speech it is being taken away. Robert Gibbs and Nancy Pelosi thinks is is staged or that there are people with swastikas at town hall meetings. Wake up people!!! It won't be to much longer until you have no say in anything. The Gov't is now saying you should have 1 less child to become more green. Is that what we want is for the Gov't to tell us how many kids we should have? Stand up and let your voice be heard!!!

Jim McMahon said...

Sorry for not clarifying who Lauren McGovern is.

She is a 3 year old girl from Mt Greenwood, who somehow climbed the ladder on the family pool in her backyard a week ago Tuesday and fell in. She is currently at Christ Hospital.

When they found her, she was blue and floating, but one of the neighbors gave her mouth to mouth and got her breathing while the Ambulance was responding. I don't know who this wonderful person is, but I do know that every second counts for drowning victims and he, or she did everything right.

The whos, whens, and hows other than this are irrelevant as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not certain of any of the specifics so that's all I can tell you.

All I know is the McGovern family is living every parents worst nightmare right now, and all we can do is offer our support to them and hope and pray for her full recovery.

Babies are resilient, and it's in Gods hands now, so I'm hoping, and praying for the best. I wish the McGovern family nothing but the best outcome.

I noticed ribbons around the neighborhood as a sign of support for this baby and her family, and if anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know.

Thanks.........Jimmy

Nazi’s were socialists, Nazis were fascists , the Nazi party was previously known as the NSWP (National Socialist Workers Party). Time for Nancy Pelosi to get a brown shirt and an arm band? (gov’t control in every aspect of your life)

I wonder if people out here in the 19th ward are ready to take a serious hike from the Democratic National Party?

As Ronald Reagan said "he didn't leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left him".

Would be real cool if the 19th ward voted for the republican candidate for Governor in 2010 just like they voted for Perica for County Board President in 2006, and continue their resentment to Dan Hynes , former 19th ward resident.

I guess only the ward committeeman, Jerry Joyce can tell us who he’ll back?

Thanks for the additional info, Jim. That's all that I need to know. I hadn't heard anything about Lauren, but I'll certainly keep her and her family in my prayers in the coming days.

Drove by Mt.Greenwood Park last night. I thought I was driving through Jackson or Washington Park. What in Gods name is going on here? Two adult overweight blacks are standing by the street, where all the cheerleaders were practicing and kissing and fondling each other. I almost threw-up. Did anyone else see this? This is not behavior for little girls to see. Come on, enough is enough. They know they have us over a barrel. If you say anything to them like "would you knock it off in front of the kids" you will be deemed a racist, I'm tired of this crap!! What can we do? Are there any police that read this blog that can make any suggestions? If we allow this to continue it's only gonna get worse. I know this is a public park and everyone has access to it, I just wish we had access to theirs, right by the beaches and golf courses without being robbed, raped or shot!!!!!

August 6, 2009 10:45 AM said...lying us into an unjust war,trampling our constitutional rights with secret,illegal wiretaps...

There were "WMD'S" (in this case, chemical weapons, banned by the Geneva Convention)used by Iraq on its own people a number of years before the invasion. This has been documented in the media. He had a long time and a lot of space to hide them. Just because we can't find them now doesn't change the history that he had them and used them.
On the subject of the alleged illegal wiretaps, are you referring to the ones that the Obama administration is continuing to use today?
And don't tell me about deficit spending. Obama is spending more in his first year than every president combined from G.Washington through G.W. Bush. Please tell me how we are going to pay for this. And don't tell me he is doing it to get us out of the recession. Show me one time in history that spending money you don't have ever stopped a recession. All it will do is cause uberinflation when the recession ends. You cannot just print trillions at the treasury because it devalues our dollar.
Massive torture scandal? Waterboarding was used on exactly 3 individuals. Why won't the Obama administration declassify the info that was gained by these tactics like he did the other things that appeared to support his argument? Dick Cheney asked for these things to be brought out into the open, and he was privy to all of the information. I agree with him on this point. And if waterboarding saved American lives, than I would say to do it again. If you childs life was on the line would you do it?
...not keeping us safe before Sept 11...Lets not forget the number of terrorist attacks against our coutry under Clinton (eg the Cole bombing 1st World Trade Center bombing and embassy bombings) that went unchallenged by Clinton, thereby emboldening our enemies, knowing that we wouldn't respond. Also, it is documented that Bin Laden was "in the crosshairs" to be taken out, but Clinton refused to give the order. More weakness.
Lets not forget that G.W. Bush and John McCain in 2003 and 2005 repsectively called for more regulation and oversight over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and warned of the impending crisis that it could cause. Barney Frank, on the Senate floor accused them of fearmongering and said that Fannie and Freddie were fine. Without the collapse of the real estate market, our economy would not be in the worst recession since the Jimmy Carter administration.
Finally, the Govt healthcare plan will be cheaper for employers to purchase than private plans. Whose plan do you think your employer will pay for? This could effectively crush most insurance companies from existance, thereby making the Govt plan the only game in town. I personally don't want the Govt in charge of my health, as they have already bankrupted medicare.
I think you listen to too much liberal talk radio. You should try conservative talk and widen you horizons. I love listening to the rabid libs on 820AM. they are hilarious.

Nothing like seeing cartoons our kids have already seen a million times. It's a nice idea seeing movie outdoors with family and neighbors but the choice in movie could improve. Grant Park did classics like Gone with the Wind and Wizard of Oz. Who do we email for a better choice for next year?

***************************

The movie selection for an all ages show must be G or PG not PG-13 nor R. Wizard of Oz would have been an excellent choice - perhpas you need to contact the Mt. Greenwood Park Advisory Council.

They do have other movies that are for "older" crowds.. Ridge Park showed "Cool Hand Luke" and Smith Village will be showing "Some Like It Hot".

So it would seem - most anything could be an option.

I just want to thank the advisory council for making sure we even GOT a movie...cartoon or not

If you cannot make it please try and bow your head and say a prayer by yourself or whoever you are with at 7:00 Tuesday night and be with us in spirit. Lauren is a beautiful little girl along with her 2 brothers and parents.
Please let's stop complaining about everything else (at least for the time being). Let's everyone pull together as a community and believe in GOD and remember your problems may not be as bad as others.

10:01 a.m. - Thanks for the heads up on 820 am, what time is the rabid libs on? I personally get tired of 560 a.m. and wouldn't mind a change.

Also, 9:51 - I have a story in regards to this matter. The one and only incident I have ever had at the park involved 5 teenage black youth, and my 5 year old. Long story short, one of the boys directed some very foul language towards one of the girls in the group. The problem I had was that my kid was on the monkey bars, right next to them. So I went over to the group and suggested that they leave. The boy with the foul language asked why. I said you're really not suppose to be here. He told me, I must be one of those "racist ###holes". Then I was told "to go sit on that bench and mind my own ###king business". I looked at the ground, scratching my forehead for a second. Then I looked at this young man and said "I'm not a racist you little jerk-off. This part of the park is designated for children 12 years of age or younger." Then I explained to him that if he could not read the 3 foot sign he walked past entering the park, I would be more than happy to help him. After a few minutes the group left, and went back to the pool. But not before one of the girls apologized, at which time I told her not a problem. I don't think this made me a racist.

My point is, don't let your actions be dictated by fear of being labeled a racist. However you said this was at night. So, if they were older, good chance illegal firearm would have been present. unless you had the illegally carried firearm, might have been best to walk away.

Very thoughtful response. It shows how you Obama worshippers think. You despise (and fear) those of us who are willing to fight for your rights and security.

You will never vote for me because I am not a politician. I can stand with honor, something cowards like you can never do. That is why you need your false gods.

You think things were bad under Bush? Think again.

Your rights to free speech are quickly disappearing. A Boston police officer who is also a captain in the Mass. National Guard has been suspended from both jobs and is under "investigation" because he wrote a "racially sensitive" e-mail about your god's comments in the Henry Gates case.

The key words here are "racially sensitive." You see, your god Obama can go on national TV, admit he knows nothing about a case, then make "racially sensitive" remarks that stir up a beehive of controversy. Even though he said amazingly stupid things a U.S. President should never say, he exercised his right to free speech.

Police officers and Army soldiers no longer have the right to free speech. They are not alone. White people are now forbidden to say certain words. Only white people can be considered "racist."

As the Speech Police Democrats have their way, eventually more rights will be stripped away under the guise of "sensitivity."

I am proud of the men and women I serve with, but I am ashamed at the direction this country is taking. We are destroying ourselves from within, thanks to the ignorant masses: you and those like you.

We the people are in control of term limits by the voting booth. It's too bad that so many people who vote have their heads crammed up in their butts. The voters from age 18 to 30 get most of their news from credible sources such as "the daily show" and "the Colbert report". And worse yet CBS, NBC and ABC. Yikes! Obama supporters are about to get what asked for soon, unfortunately, clear thinking Americans are going to get what Obama supporters asked for too. Wake the Hell up and get serious about the people you are voting for. Think about how this Presidents policies are going to effect you, your children & your grandchildren's lives's. This guy is going so far out in left field that he is now talking about "End of life decisions" to save money for this ridiculous socialized health care they want to push on us. So when Granny and Gramps get a little to burdensome, just put them in their travel cage and bring them in to "Christ government hospital" and sign the papers for a dose of youthanasia. Get you heads out of your Asses!!!!

Parents, If you really want to know what your child is doing check out their facebook. My child didn't sign off from facebook so yes, I took a look. I'm not familiar with facebook but I sure did get educated. I couldn't believe what I was reading and how they discuss everything they do. Of course several boys/girls talk about "fighting" when, were, etc. They make it sound like the event of the night. Can't they find something else to do other than go watch kids fight. These fights take place at Munroe, MTG, Agua in Oak Lawn, Kennedy. Beverly has camera's so they don't fight at that park. From what I gathered if cops are at one park they re-locate to another. Take a look if you can. Tonight 8-8 comments were made NOT to got to MTG park, "no fighting" black older kids have guns, don't go". This is beyond sad and parent's need to know they find this amusing to go watch... Keeping my kids home or they can go to a movie. Can't wait for school to start!
It's time for parent's to step in and find out what they are doing at night.
I was warned about teenage years but never imagined it would be so dangerous just going to a park. Maybe parent's should start going up to these parks at night when it gets dark and see what is happening.

From the reports gathered the next hit by terrorists will be the schools.

I work the beat around the schools in Mt. Greenwood and I am happy I do not have any children. What in the hell am I supposed to do if 5 terrorist with body armour, AK-47's, and possible bombs strapped to their chest walk into a school??

My car does NOT have a rifle mount (and I am not and will not be qualified to use a rifle due to the strenuous requirements made by our Department)So just me and my semi-automatic is basically a suicide mission...not to mention No Contrat = No Hero's.

The intel that was told to us is that the terrorist are now targeting schools. will enter with body armour, high powered weapons, bombs. Start shooting until the first responders arrive and if they are stupid enough to go in then that will support the terrorist plan.

As for myself, I will make sure I do not spill my free cup of coffee (compliments of McDonalds) and secure the area and call for SWAT. I have not been maxing out my deffered comp every month NOT to enjoy it when I retire!

Speaking of courage, to the anonymous poster that claims to patrol our neighborhood schools I hope you are joking. If not then you are the absolute worst kind of human being. If children were in jeopardy I would face terrorists with a sling shot rather then hide around the block like a coward. A contract has nothing to do with your sworn duty. If that is your attitude maybe you should do the city a favor and take your maxed out comp and retire. Or better yet when you finish your free coffee put your service revolver in your fat mouth and have some dessert. After all it is the cowards way out. You are a disgusting person.

Too bad the cops are busy at Jackson Park hospitsal. Really, I am a medic for the city and 2211 was on standby with a prisoner at JPH hospital! For those of you who don't know, JPH is located at 7531 S Stony Island Ave, on the east side! What the hell were they doing all the way over there? It was officer Crooker (whom I like very much) and I did not recognize his partner. I should've asked, but I did not want to get into it with them. THey go where they are told, just like every other city workder. C'mon Rugai, really? JPH? Why? No wonder no cops here, or an hour response. I guess its every kis for himself at the park tonight. My kid won't be there. This neigborhood is going down the shitter. It's only a matter of time. The 'others' have vowed to take this neighborhood and it appears as if it is happening, slowly but surely. God forbid, just like the other poster said, if we tried to have a party at one of their parks! Today they had a private party (oh and I'm sure they had a permit) complete with bbq's, tables, and a clown right in MTG park. Outstanding!

I would hope that if you have any sort of knowledge regarding this that this is not your way of notifying the police. Pick up your phone and call them. The last time I checked they don't dispatch cars based on what this site has on it.

Also, to the blogger who wonders what to do about people making out in the park....please tell me you're joking about worrying you'd be labeled a racist for telling someone to stop. That isn't a police issue. Tell them to stop because it offends you and the children shouldn't see that behavior. That should apply to everyone of all cultures, not just the new neighbors from the east.

Proud Captain, I thank you for your service to our Country. Welcome home.

To August 7th 4:24 p.m.

I'll try to explain it to you. This neighborhood is mostly working class white. Now I do not live here yet, but my better half was born and raised here and we are looking forward to moving here. Her parents are here, and my daughter loves hanging out with children in this neighborhood.

Being working class white does not mean Mt. Greenwoodians are racist. I'm guessing most are a give the benefit of the doubt, until, kind of people. However being working class means you do not want to be taxed up to 55% to support ANYONE on some government program.

Now for the city of Chicago, it is because this is a city filled with everyone from college students, to union members, to welfare recipients.

For the college students, most do not have a job where they pay taxes. That was simple. Not to mention the amount of college students that know nothing about real life, or race and ethnicity, except from what they hear from their parents and liberal schools. I'm sure alot of them voted for Obama just so they can tell their kids, that Mommy, or Daddy voted for the first black president.

For the union members, most are sheep, and I do not mean this in a bad way. I am a Chicago trade union member. I can honestly say that everyone I have ever worked with is a good person who just wants to take care of their family. But, most do not keep up on current events, especially involving political issues. I'm not kidding, alot of union brothers I talked to during election time said "I don't want to vote for a n####r, but I don't want another 4 years of Bush." Seriuosly, that's what they would say. Every union tells it's membership to vote democratic, no matter what, and they do.

For welfare recipients, need I go further.

So I hope some of your question has been answered. Please attempt to answer mine. Where will the money come from to lower the deficit created by a nationalized healthcare system?

Oh, I forgot How many people in this city watch Bill Maher? I bet it is alot.

Thanks for the info on 820 a.m. and Lauren McGovern.

To August 6th 8:04 p.m.- I enjoy reading this blog. I also enjoy leaving comments. I appreciate everyone's opinions, no matter how much I disagree with them.

Commander of the 8th district, Kupczyk ,has ordered two beats, 811 and 812, which is pretty much the west end of the 8th district and where most city workers live, to stay on their beats and only take calls on that beat.
Why can't commander Kuemmeth do the same in 22? the 8th district is far bigger and busier than 22, it should not be a lot to ask..
You would think Rugai who lives in beverly and whose neighborhood has been inundated with home invasions would demand police protection. Even though she doesn't recognize anything west of western as being important, at least the commander could step up to the plate and order 2211 to stay on their beat only...I know 1 car is not a lot but it's better than no cars, ever....
Also there are a lot of police with take home cars that live in 22, I hope you cruise your neighborhood before you go home and go to work, I know I do. I tune to zone 9 as soon as i get in the car and take an extra 15 or so minutes before i head to the ghetto for work. It is not a lot to ask, and I would hope it would be appreciated, even though there would be those who bitch because you drop your laundry off, or run into the store, etc. To those I say be happy there is some type of police in your area...
Please all be careful, do not be a victim, and call the police for everything those on the east end would call for, even though they may not be priority jobs and dispatched for hours, they will be dispatched eventually and that will bring the police into our area.

I am hopeful people whom are going on as anonymous aren't making up bogus stories just strike the fear into the hearts of the people who live in the MG Area. This is the kind of sh*t that draws the good people away. The housing market is on the decline and many of our originally high listed homes are now quite affordable. I have lived in three other areas of this city and they have all gone to the sh*tter because o0f people striking the fear into the neighbors. Some of the people alleging these attacks do not live in this area, but love it when people stop living as they should. I loved my other neighborhoods, but my parents moved because they didn't want to be the last ones still in the neighborhood. My parents still have their home in the second neighborhood that has gone to sh*t, but at least this neighborhood has seen it's worst and is becoming gentrified. These are uncertain times we live in and we have choices to make. Stop making excuses, PARENT your children (kids listening to rap music isn't being culturally sensitive - it's stupid), continue living in whatever your neighborhood(not just MT. GREENWOOD) and look out for each other. We have too many people hating their neighbors, for what because they appear to have more than you? We have some serious SH*T happening in this country that spans far greater than MG, people!!! If we watch out for each other and can get along, we can become stronger. We don't need to worry about who's moving in or who's moving out. Keep your property up, tell someone to turn down their music, have litter bugs pick up their trash. Once you let anyone know you are fearful of them; they will continue to prey on you. I stand up to these teens who are skateboarding off St. Christina steps; I tell them to take it to their homes, I'm not an *sshole to them, I tell them to petition for skateboarding ramps at the park and we as a community should sign the petition to have it. These teens need constructive outlets, instead of always expecting them to be up to "no-good" we should try to find something else for them. Teach our kids to resist drugs, this is our obligation as parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and neighbors. Otherwise continue to sit on your ashes and do nothing more than complain and wait for someone else to handle it!!!

Took a stroll up to the park (MTG) last night. There was a very large group of blacks with coolers, a large truck with picnic/bbq equipment. A large group of mexicans and a small group of neighborhood kids playing baseball, ages looked to be between 9 and 14. Only one or two little white kids at the playground, rest where black or mexican

Go ahead everyone and pretend the problem in Mt. Greenwood Park isn't for real. Just close your eyes when you see the east-siders in your park and think it will just go away and when you open your eyes, you will see Marquette Park all over again. You might see 5 one day, 10 the next and maybe 30 the next and before you know it, it' gone. You'll just drive by the park looking in, too afraid to stop and enjoy the park for fear of your life. Don't believe it can happen? Drive by Marquette Park or Scottsdale park and take a peek because soon we all will be on the outside looking in. Believe me, I lived through it twice...

We have pretty much lost the park. The minorities have become the majority and are now regularly throwing 'private parties' there. Not that I did not want a nice park, but I said from day one when the committee was planning this million dollar dream park, 'if you build it, they will come' and I wasn't talking about the MTG people. And, they sure as shit did, didn't they? They will never leave now. If it was just a regular playground, like they have, they'd have no reason to come around it. It will take a lot to reclaim what is now lost folks.
As to the poster about the skateboarders, my kid is one of them. You are right, they have nowhere to go. Rugai is not going to give us a skate park. We suggested they build one at the tennis courts (since only like, 2 people use those) and they cited, of course, money issues and liability of all things, even though there are several skate parks throughout Chicago. Unfortunately, none in our area. The closest is Alsip (which aint that great of an area) or Evergreen Park, neither of which is in walking distance. I would be willing to circulate a petition for it, but that does not mean the city will build it, let alone pay for it. On a side note, skateboarding is not illegal in the city despite what many people think, I just wanted to throw that out there. They basically have the same rules as bikers. It is only illegal in the loop. However, if St C's doesn't want them there, and I undestand why they may not, it is up to the Father to ask them to leave their private property, which sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't if there is no church function. The kids need somewhere to go skate that doesn't bother anyone else.
To the cop who has a take home car-keep up the good work! When I hear people bitch about you guys coming home in your cars I say the same thing you think-I am just glad you guys are here in the neighborhood! For all I care, you can all bring your cars home and cruise around MTG if you want! Thanks for doing that on your own time no less.
I would still like an explanation as to why 2211 was at Jackson Park Hospital the other night...

I witnessed a whole slew of black children being escorted from the Salvation Army building to the playground. I know why they are coming to this area because they fear for their lives in their own neighborhoods, but I'm not making excuses for them to have bbq's when it is unlawful to have bbq's in undesignated areas of the city. I do not blame these children at all, even though it may perturb most of you, they are still children. The problem with why they can't play in their own parks is because they will spawn and neglect their kids to the point they join gangs, are raised by the streets and then they are in fear of their own offspring. I thought the Salvation Army building was for sale or they were going to close it down, then they would not be here people. Don't be afraid to make ANYONE be accountable for their actions, DON'T move away and DON'T panic. The problem with Marquette Park was the "Lugans" couldn't be the last one's out. Besides one thing that Marquette Park has that Mt. Greenwood has very few of is, apartment buildings. We don't have massive apartment buildings. Keep that in mind when you guys want to panic.

So are you saying the playlot ladies should have left well enough alone?!?!?

We should as a community should settle for a sub-standard dangerous park because "they" might come if we build something nice.... and see you went ahead a built it and I was right.. they came!

If that is the attitude of Mt. Greenwood no wonder it looks like such shit.. crappy stores line 111th street - no big names, few nice store fronts.. everything run down. Because if we make it nice "they" might come!

Why you are at it keep our kids in sub-par schools, and don't make our houses nice either. Because "they" might want that too.

Forget it. Concentrate on the parks in MTG. Get a citizen's patrol effort going.

I have not been afraid to kick clowns out of the alley or the park when I walk my dog at night. I always carry a large pepper spray and I'm not afraid to use it. They know it.

City workers/residents in 016 are getting the same kind of crappy police protection. 022 and 016 get the useless old coppers who could care less. They call themselves members of the KMA club.

Example: One of them posted here about how he would sit by and sip his free coffee and do absolutely nothing.

He cried about his contract and his accrued comp time and how he wasn't going to do anything that would put his lazy ass in harm's way.

The police contract isn't our problem. They have a crappy FOP, too bad. Do-nothing cops in 022 are a problem.

Face it folks. Even if Officer Blowfish got a contract he would still do nothing. It is up to the residents to take charge.

Organize a citizen's patrol. When you see crap going on at the parks, get a group of citizens together and tell the offenders to move along. Believe me, it takes guts but if you do nothing, this neighborhood will fall.

Hide in your homes or take back the streets.

Maybe the police are hesitant to kick kids out of the park for fear of being labelled "stupid" by our president.

Or, god forbid, Bill Maher gets a hold of the news. I can hear him during his opening diatribe now. "So it turns out that noone told the Chicago police department that an african american was elected to the presidency." I'm sure he would then go on to tell the tale of these upstanding citizens who stopped at a neighborhood park for a late night snack. After a church fuction of course. Then these racist cops escorted them off the property.

Some people may be afraid of being labeled a racist on the street. Can you imagine being labeled a racist on H.B.O. or on CNN during a healthcare conference. Oh! THE HUMANITY.

I am a 007th District officers who resides in the lovely Mt.Greenwood area. My partner for the past 7 years happens to be black and is my best friend. His family is from the Beverly area and the last time he went to church with his family he revealed some very disturbing news. He said the preacher was preaching on how It is time to BE SEEN. How President Obahma has their back and how the future is theirs. He was telling everyone to make sure they "use" the nice new park on the west side (mtg park). Instead of walking around the track for excersize at Morgan Park HS take a stroll on 111th all the way to pulaski. "Be seen" he told them. The sooner that they are seen,the sooner them people (whites) will accept we are here to stay. The time is now to buy in "their" (whites) part of the town he said. My partner was even astonished by the preachers actions. He even said if whites did that in a black neighborhood they would be victims. No wonder I have been seeing more and more and more. Im disgusted and worried.

Just went to the park to walk a few laps and check out the meteor shower and instead I got to see 5-6black kids hassling a few white kids. When I went to confront them the black kids told me to go "f*ck off". I told them I am calling the police and they all started laughing (as if they allready knew that no police would show in any timely manner) Then I told them that they should go home and hang around their own parks. One of these thugs replied "hell no we love candy-land" I called but the "black" dispatcher refused to dispatch a car because she thought no laws are being broken. I called again after I saw one of the thugs urinating down the slide...but no police showed.

I'll tell you why, because it is whities thats the only reason and who is gonna stop them but us. The big tough softball players do nothing, there is intimidation by the way you look at people in mass without saying a word.

So when are we going to stop bitching and get something organized to protest Rugai and what is happening to our neighborhood?

Any good organizers out there? Get something started. Set up a website, get some sign up sheets and let's do something about this. I would do it myself if I could but my circumstances prevent it. There are no other neighborhoods like Mt. Greenwood. Believe me, I've been looking. No other neighborhoods have our sense of community or history - the homes, the trees, the people - all unique and very special. Please let's not lose it because we allow a**hole Rugai to stand by and let this happen!

The white kids are punks too. They hang out at Mt. G School and swear and scream and piss down the slides almost EVERY night. When you confront them they do the same thing - tell you to f*** off. They have no respect for anyone. I've called 911 in excess of six times some nights over a period of 4-5 hours and no one comes. We live close enough that my young children get to hear all this abusive language regularly not to mention having to be kept off the equipment because of the biohazard. These kids just know nothing is going to happen to them.

Cassell's playground gets abused too - the little kids can't even use it. The punk kids have set so many fires on it that large portions of it are melted beyond repair.

The cushion safety tiles get picked up and thrown around the school grounds.

There is always broken glass up there.

And I can tell you it is not the black kids I see hanging out there. It is our own "little darlings".

I can't begin to tell you these lovelies do to the air conditioning on the roof of Cassell. No respect for anything.

I guess it is a rite of passage that you must run the roof of Cassell been going on for 20+ years - but, nowadays they must add destruction of property and cussing out any adult that questions them.

And it is not just the public school kids doing it - those wonderful catholic valuess often get left at home by these punk kids.

I usually bring my kids in the morning to the park and I have NEVER encountered a problem at the park until now. The slide smelled of urine and my little one found a used rubber on the bridge!! To my amazement I found 2 more!! This has now turned into a health hazard for children. Not too long ago my neighbor found some white colored rocks inside a small plastic bag which was wedged up in the crevace of the slide! She said that they were drugs. Now would do children usually do when they see something that looks like candy??

It is truley a shame that I will have to wipe down EVERYTHING my child goes on with alcohol swipes.

Some of these BLACK walkers and joggers already happen to live in Mount Greenwood. I know 2 elderly black women who walk in the park in the mornings and afternoons who have lived in Mount Greenwood at least 10 years now. It's the ones coming in at night that are the problems.

Pappy said...

In response about having a dangerous, sub-par park you are quoting me out of context and not in full. What I said was just a regular playground should've been constructed, not the million dollar masterpiece. A regular new playground would have been just fine and served it's purpose. Just look at how much has already been damaged (some on purpose, some on accident) and the costs to replace it. Then, there would not have been such a temptation to come to 'candy land' as one poster wrote. They come because our stuff is better and they feel they are entitled. I don't feel bad one bit for those little shits. I used to, but after spending 4 years on the east side, they learn at a real young age that they are 'entitled'.
And, it is no secret that this neighborhood is a target. MTG is known as the most segregated, and by default racist, neighborhood in the city. Our canadien friends make no secret that they intend to take over-they started with AG (even though we have a temporary foothold), moved on to the park, and now the neighborhood. Just the other day my wife and I were walking thru the park and we heard to canadiens say 'this is our park now and theys aint gettin it back'. They pulled the same shit when the LSC at AG changed from all blk to mostly MTG. They shouted that for the next election they were going to bus people in to get us out of THEIR school! A big part of the problem are the aholes renting out the houses they paid too much to build and now cannot sell. Sure, we don't have many apts, but there are sure a lot of houses being rented out, and builders don't give a shit. As long as the rent is paid (see section 8) they hand over the keys. The salvation army is still open because their new building is not finished yet in Blue Island. You can go right in and ask them all about it. They know they are not liked here, nor wanted. It is not a big secret. They have not decided what they are going to do with the Central Park building yet.
But what are we supposed to do? One poster says we should organize. OK, well, should we go to the park and burn crosses wearing white hoods or what? You think the cops would show up then? Every time I see those nigglets walk by my house I go outside until they are gone on the bus. I give em dirty looks, don't acknowlege them other than with suspicious eyes-and guess what? They still come back. They know whitey won't do anything unless they instigate a confrontation. As long as they just bee bop around not messing with anything they know we won't risk it.

I am sick of the liberal idea that an organization of white people is always compared to the KKK.

There were a group of white people who got together and formed this country. They were called the Founding Fathers. They got a group of white people together to kick the King of England out. That group was called the Continental Army. Honorable people all - white - and they gave you this country.

A citizen's patrol is not a KKK. It is a group that does exactly that - it patrols. And when they come upon groups of non-residents, they sit on them until they move on or do something to warrant calling the police.

And since we know the police are usually not going to show - then the citizens need to enforce the law. But I guess it's easier to sit back and sigh and whine, "what can we do?"

I have been reading this blog for a couple of weeks now and unfortunately feel it is the same handful of people commenting over and over. The problems of MTG and Beverly were originally caused by and are perpetuated by the PEOPLE who live there. Take a drive through Beverly and 95% of the people I see are black. 95th Street is nothing but low income stores catering to people from the east side - oh and Borders where you may or may not make it to your car without being robbed. When I was growing up the stores along 95th were owned AND patronized by the people in the neighborhood. Now the people of the neighborhood drive to Oak Brook or Orland to shop thereby turning their neighborhood over. Evergreen Park built a beautiful "walking" park that has been taken over by thugs - walk through the parking lot there at any given time and all of the stickers on the cars are Chicago - and you know that means north of 87th Street and the EP people stopped going there, again giving in.

MTG park is being taken over slowly but surely. The problem AS I SEE IT is that if you don't want your neighborhoods/parks/stores taken over then GO THERE, SHOP THERE, DON'T SELL YOUR HOUSE and run when the first person you don't like the looks of move in. Neighborhoods cannot change unless the people who live there let it happen. For all of those complaining about MTG Park - GET YOUR NEIGHBORS, GET YOUR FRIENDS AND GET YOUR FAMILIES AND YOU GO UP THERE AND HAVE BARB-B-QUES AND PARTIES. Make sure you and your kids are there, call the police if you are harrassed (someone with a gun always bring them quickly).

I do not back down when I see anything amiss. I call the police and let it be known that I am the one calling the police, I have run over to teens who are acting up, I will yell at people to pick up their trash/dog poop, etc. I will glare right back when someone glares at me AND I AM NOT SELLING MY HOUSE.

PEOPLE SPEAK UP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Stop complaining and start doing - get out of your houses and walk around, get a nice big dog and take it for walks with your cell phone in your hand and start calling and keep calling, not only the police but the alderman's office.

Pappy - I love reading your input, hell, I would love to have a beer with ya.

But I have to disagree with one thing. I don't think Mt. Greenwood is the most segregated neigborhood in the city. I think that honor would have to be bestowed upon the white mile. Now noone f##ks with bridgeport for obvious reasons.

But when it comes to canaryville, their's proof of two things. Racial profiling and violence. They're politically incorrect, BUT THEY WORK.

To the anon poster replying to my 'white hoods' comment, rest assured, I am no liberal. I am a staunch, conservative, card carrying republican. And, I am not whining. I used to attend CAPS meetings (along with the whole other 4 people) monthly, knew the cops on the beat here and took a real interest in this community. I built a house last year and intend on staying for the long haul. I am game for anything and fear nobody. I walk proudly thru my park, ride my bike, walk my mutts, hit golf balls and whatever else I might fancy. But, hey, it just might do the trick. I am sure it would bring the cops out. Drastic times call for drastic measures.
To j.o.b.-I just call it like I see it brother. I've been known to be brutally honest sometimes, but shits gotta be said now and then. Thanks for the support. Its nice to know their are many other like minded individuals out here that want to keep this neighborhood a safe, family oriented place.
So, when should we meet for the neighborhood patrols? This is an open invitation to anyone with the balls to actually go thru with this, as a f**kin group. Strength in numbers. They want to be seen, so let's make sure we are seen. I only work 8 days a month at the FD so let's get it on.
When should I report for my shift?
And, FYI, if anyone ever attended a CAPS meeting, that is exactly the coppers advice. Form our own patrols. They are not coming unless its a priority 1 call (i.e. shots fired, man with a gun, etc). So what are we all waiting for. Lets get organized.
I am a supporter of concealed carry, by the way! Let's see how big a group of resident adult citizens we can get up to patrol the park Saturday night, say around dusk? Bring it on...

I like the idea of a neighborhood patrol. Bombard 911 with every little thing, I keep hearing that the only way to get more police is to increase the call volume over here. I think I see a gun in this thugs waistband, I see a thug using drugs, harassing an elderly woman, trying to break into a car, looking in backyards, getting into his car after drinking 40 oz in the park, BBQing in the park without a permit, etc. Document when they are called and when and if they show up. Show up as a group to a CAPS meeting with the documentation in hand, invite the media, Ginger and the commander of 22. This is the last place for the city worker to go. We can't allow them to ruin our neighborhood! I would love to walk a few laps around the park or the neighboring blocks with some neighbors- great exercise, adult conversation and taking back our neighborhood!

Don't be afraid of these black and white punks in MGP. Once the fight starts they throw little sissy punches around until ya' pound 'um into the turf. Make them eat shit! There's plenty of that in the park.

Pappy, I would be happy to join you and anyone else in a patrol. I too like the concealed carry, after all no one is here to protect us but us right? ANyone else up for this group?

Pappy, give a time and I'll be there along with a crowd of supporters in the parking lot!

OK, Saturday night, how about 8PM? Too early, too late? Does this work for everyone?

Keep it up with all of your racial slurs. That's what pisses off the blacks and make them want to come here more.
