    Rahm got jacked by the appellate court.
    Rahm will appeal again.
    Is Rahm done?

    Oh no.
    Rahm has donations
    He will use that money to appeal.
    Appeal, Rahm, appeal!

    Rahm is back on the ballot thanks to Illinois Supreme Court's ruling.

    Good article, liz.

    Thought this summed it up quite well -
    “The novel standard adopted by the appellate court majority is without any foundation in Illinois law,’’ the Supreme Court’s ruling said.

    When you look at all the eff ups in Chi Town politics, why shouldn't Rahm get on the ballot.


    One set of rules for the people, Crybabies pay lawyers.

    And to think I was embarrassed about CA politics.

    The fat lady is just as crooked as the politicians.

    Rahm was my Congressperson. I met him...he came to my house...introduced himself...a guy who really understands politics.

    But when you think how...what would describe it...anti-American? the decision would have been...if you go to serve your country - you give up your residency rights...well...let's see...if I go to Iraq or Afganistan to serve my country - and rent out my house - with every intention of returning...I give up my residency. Where then do I live?

    You don't have to like politicians.... you don't have to like the military...but when someone goes to serve their country - they should not have to give up their residency - their existence - be punished -- because they choose to serve.

    I wish I could count the number of times people say to me..."Chicago! The Windy City ...the windiest city in the country!"

    Chicago is the 19th windiest city in the US. Cheyenne Wyoming is the windiest. But some people grab onto silly myths - because it is easy. And they say silly things. But let's forgive them. Silly myths can be fun.

    So why is Chicago called the Windy City??...it was given that nickname by a New York newspaper in the late 1800's - because of the wordiness of its politicians - and the nickname stuck!

    Actually RICHARD, Emanuels lawyers had a better argument. However Rahm's a wussy for not running a write in campaign.

    I agree with your premise, however, I do not agree that being the of Chief of Staff to the POTUS is serving ones country.

    Isn't Chief Suck Up and K.A. an official post?

    --

    LOL, I wouldn't trust any politician with 10 feet of me or my belongings.

    ---------------


    I stand corrected re the LAUSD cop.

    He was arrested last night and released today.

    He was charged with FILING A FALSE POLICE REPORT.


    Seems like he shot himself and claimed it was a auto thief..

    Grace, I thought the ruling, which was 7-0, made it quite clear that
    the lower court was out of line in removing Rahm in the first place.

    Some only insist on strict Constitutionality only when they benefit from
    it. Sorry, that's not they way it works folks.

    Liz! Those are the same people who whine about "activist" judges -- defined as a judge who makes a decision you don't like.

    Unlike say... a judge who goes to speak at a political rally...or who lies on his financial disclosure by failingto list the income his wife receives from her work for fringe political groups...

    And then there is Michele Bachmann, who would cut veteran benefits.

    Speaking as a veteran, I have no problem with this. Technically speaking,I am entitled to some VA disability benefits. I have some hearing loss because of my service. I simply refused to apply for it.

    As with all government programs, the VA is not without its share of fraud/waste/abuse. I know of people who get a FULL disability check from the VA, but are still quite capable of having a job and/or still work under the table.

    Yeah, I know it sucks. But we have to start SOMEWHERE. We simply can't keep spending like there is no tomorrow.... You won't have to worry about the bills, but I and most certainly my children will.

    I would have no problem with it - IF we then "cut" the wars/conflicts and brought every single service person home; from every single country where they are currently stationed.

    You have some hearing loss, and chose not to avail yourself of help. That's all well and good, but what about all those troops from Iraq and Afghanistan - you know, the ones with traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs? What about them?
