So And Slow It Goes and... Goes

Harvey vendor records missing

Despite numerous search efforts conducted by a team of Harvey staffers, private attorneys and even the mayor, many vendor payment records totaling thousands of dollars still are missing, a city official testified, prompting a government watchdog to wonder why the city's record-keeping is such a mess.

A handful of outside "forensic people" removed two computers last week from Harvey City Hall, human resources director Roberta Lyles testified in a civil deposition Tuesday as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by The Star's sister newspaper the Daily Southtown against the city.


Attorneys defending the city against the lawsuit hired "an outside forensic analyst to assist this firm in our analysis and investigation of these issues," Clifford Kosoff said.

Kosoff declined to name the independent analysis firm, citing an attorney-client privilege, but called it a "credible, well-respected forensic firm."

Misappropriation of funds and hiring people to defend their actions. The city will soon be in so much debt that they will give up and run out.

Harvey officer fired for false report

A Harvey police officer found guilty of falsifying a police report was fired last week by the city's civil service commission.

But officer Alex Gbur, who had worked with the department's canine, continued to insist the real reason he lost his job was because he's backing a political opponent of Mayor Eric Kellogg in the April 17 mayoral race.

Gbur -- a supporter of mayoral candidate Marion Beck -- was suspended without pay in October when he was accused of trying to cover up $2,000 in damage to his police car. At a commission hearing last month, he was found guilty of lying about backing into a fire hydrant outside his Thornton residence.


Mayoral hopefuls promise change

Each Harvey mayoral candidate had his or her own way of handling the pulpit, zoning in on one of dozens of people last weekend at a Harvey church.

Each touted their visions for new streets, more jobs and safer neighborhoods.

But the five hopefuls donning their Sunday best at First Wesley Academy United Methodist Church on Saturday had a common mission: To take the reigns of Harvey and dissolve what they see as a corrupt administration.


Better marketing to recruit businesses to the city is what Harvey needs, said Dantzler, chairman of the city's finance committee. That starts with making sure people are safe and letting residents know what's going on in their community.

Yes, we need to give businesses a reason to want to come here. 154th street from the Metra platform to all the way west to Dixie Hwy. That used to be the downtown. There is the Metra stop and the paacebus terminal to take advantage of. maybe someday someone will.

Sources tell the Southtown: Mayor Kellogg made gun vanish

Harvey Mayor Eric J. Kellogg ordered one of his detectives to make a gun seized from a convicted felon vanish from evidence, authorities said Friday in the latest scandal to plague Harvey police and the first to finger the mayor in potentially criminal behavior.

By 2015 we will finally be a clean city.

What Did He Say

Did Chris Matthews say that republicans claiming bill Clinton killed a man because he knew too much about a land deal that Clinton did not what any info to come out about that killing being made to look like a suicide led to long long investigation when suddenly a spy inside the white house learned that Clinton was having sex with a staffer and recoded telephone conversations which in the middle of claims of a the land deal being shady he said didn't have sex with that young woman and then got impeached for lieing that republican investigation left a stain on his presidential record???

whitewaterstainondressgate allover again. Is it just as bad as war profiteering during a invasion that you lied to get the country to back you into doing leaving thousands of people dead? Yes.

The Boob Was Right It Is An Augmentation

So the surge is not a surge but was a means to make up for the loss of forces that they knew were going to be leaving Iraq a while ago. Everybody knows it is a civil war as a result of the invasion. They made plans to leave maybe two years ago.

It looks really bad when the butler leaves first.

And All I Use It For Is To Look At My House

As the communal bloodshed has worsened, some Iraqis have set up advice websites to help others avoid the death squads.

One tip - on the Iraq League site, one of the best known - is for people to draw up maps of their local area using Google Earth's detailed imagery of Baghdad so they can work out escape routes and routes to block.
For some time now, vigilante-style guard forces have been operating in many neighbourhoods, especially in Sunni areas targeted by Shia militias.

Many Sunnis see the Shia-dominated police forces as just as much of a threat, because of evidence of their involvement in kidnappings.

So part of the job of the local guards is keeping them out.

Quietly google will soon take over the world. I mean way to totally indispensable eh?

U of I Gets Rid Of Racist Mascot

Chief Illiniwek is finally gone.

Surprise Surprise

Taliban are back BushCo. is responsible. The rhetoric spewed by BushCo. makes no sense and does not address any of the failures on their part that gave them their comeback.

No one in the media will say it. And no Democrat will say anything about it either. Then they would have to talk about sending troops to defend Afghanistan. And Republicans and the media will question this going after the real enemy as though it's the same as BushCo. going after made up enemies. Instead of talking about how if you don't rebuild the country then you end up marginalizing the terror groups. Otherwise you give them a reason for being.

BuchCo. proves itself good for the Al qaeda. And nobody will make this point because it sounds to much like... Oh look faux news has a comedy news show. Oh the yucks, YUCK!

More On It's Over

Or bringing us the U.S. down from the inside.

Hey look at me over here I am going to evade Iran! Yeah, that's right I am going to Iran so you don't have time investigate me. Or talk about how all of us lied about the reason we invaded Iraq. Hey hey, I am distracting you from doing the job you were elected to do. Hey, polls what polls?

I have decided we should stay the course in Iraq. If you oppose that then you want to cut funding for the troops that we sent in without proper equipment. And we pretty much refuse to fully equip. Still want to try and talk about it? You are hurting the troops! Huh huh, does that get ya?

Everyone will continue to let the crooks and liars and the lapdog media set the tone and frame work for discussion and that's that.

Ok, It's Over

If at this point the media wont cover the fact that Bush is pretty much bat shit insane. Then why would anybody stop them from attacking Iran.

Congress wont step up no matter what the polls say. It is just over.

"I laughed I cried it made me think"

But not about the thousands of dead Iraqis or the U.S. military personnel without adiquite body and vehicle armor. It was being able to frame the debate the why we dirty corrupt GOPrs would like it to go.

Here In Illinois And The Country

The GOP suck. They are all crooks and liars. Here IL the GOP ran Judy Barr Topinka against Rod Blagojevich. Topinka has done nothing that would make qualified for the task of running a state. So why did she run? Because there was nobody else and why not give it a shot.

Nobody even paid attention to the why the right leaning liberal local media talked everyday about a friend of the Governors being in trouble with the law. With nothing new to report they just reported on that everyday. And after the election and Topinka's loss, nothing.

Now you have a presidential race coming in a few very very very long moths ahead. And just like in IL the GOP's credibility is so recked by their own actions. And they don't really care response to all calamity they are causing. Has left them with a field of people who are trying to make it seem like if they just keep a positive mind. It will all work out some time or another.

Howard Slams Obama on Iraq Policy

Australian Prime Minister John Howard, who will face his own re-election bid later this year, said Obama's proposed deadline would spell disaster for the Middle East.

"I think that will just encourage those who want to completely destabilize and destroy Iraq, and create chaos and a victory for the terrorists to hang on and hope for an Obama victory," Howard said on Nine Network television.

Having Obama and Hillary in the race is good for one thing. Attacking the GOP and the lapdog media on their stupid ass backwards thinking. If nobody talks about their pandering to lowest common demonator thinking. And Expose and reject every effort by the GOP to set the framework and tone of discussion. Then it will be a waste. Republicans are out of things right now. There is no need to tip toe around. The U.S. voted out the ones were up for reelection last time. And the others will get the boot the next time around. If people would stop listening to people trying spread doubt.

Olberman's Tongue Twists

kieth Olbermann keeps making little flubs while talking... Hope it's not a sign of something. Like all the idol and celebrity news.

How the Democrats can win everything in 2008. Tell the rubes anything as long as it is stupid and plays un-founded un-formed fears. Give then praise for acting without much thought. And encourage people who have never done a lick of something to act as though they are the authority on that something.

Little Terrorists Have Big Ears

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Has Embolden The Enemy

Mayor calls situation 'outrageous'

But Coakley, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and others said the statement offering an apology was not enough, and did not rule out criminal charges or a civil suit to recover the estimated hundreds of thousands of dollars it cost the city to respond to the bomb scares.

Menino told reporters he received a call from a Turner spokesperson about 9 p.m. but had not yet returned it. "I think the city deserves a call, not from a press person, but from somebody in the corporate structure of Turner," he said.

"I just think this is outrageous, what they've done ... It's all about corporate greed."

Outrageous is right. Now the terrorists know how stupid we are that we can't even tell the difference from something that had been around for two weeks and a "terror threat". And we have to always think of these impressionable little terrorists everyday as we contemplate our daily actions. If we don't stand strong against unreal enemies together the real enemies will see an advantage. And then what? A promotion for Ghost Rider turns into a real bomb... at the box office.

Update: HOAX!!!

Patty O'Furniture - Judge Out Of District #2

Well there goes my dream now that they are on to us.

Hoping to stop lawyers from adopting Irish names to run for judge, Gov. Blagojevich has signed a bill requiring candidates who have changed their names within three years before running to have a "formerly known as" under their name.

The law excuses candidates who changed their names due to marriage, divorce or adoption.

State Rep. John Fritchey IV (D-Chicago) proposed the change after the Sun-Times revealed that attorney Frederick S. Rhine changed his name to "Patrick M. O'Brien" to run for judge.

He followed in a long line of attorneys who adopted their mothers' maiden names or just adopted an Irish name such as "Fitzgerald" to run even though they had not a drop of Irish blood.

Rhine changed his name in October 2005 but in the end did not run as O'Brien in 2006 judicial elections.

I had no idea people pulled such a stunt. This will make the next ballots look a lot more messy.
