The last Cook County Meeting



Actually the last CC meeting was pretty tame. I think it's because there are too many running for CC State's Attorney, since Dick Devine will not be running. I think the Toddler was the last straw for Mr. Devine. The Toddler calling Devine the biggest pain in the Ass in public life he has ever met, did not help thier relationship.
So far Tony Peraica, Forrest Claypool and Mike Quigley are the only Commissioners that have expressed interest in Dick Devine's post. Actually Peraica has been quite subdued since he has expressed interest in becoming CC State's Attorney. This is going to be a very interesting CC State's Attorney's race, very interesting. Also Tom Dart CC Sheriff is interested in running as well. This is going to get good.
Earlean Collins seems to be the smartest of all of the Cook County Commissioners. Tim Schneider, first term Commissioner seems to have a lot of ambition, and really wants to work at being a good Commissioner. He also seems to have a lot of brains and common sense, a lot like Earlean Collins.
Deborah Sims seems to bring up a lot of good points, but she can get whiny, just like she did last meeting.
Just when you think Commissioner Butler is sleeping he speaks, not much but every so often. Speaking of whiny, Donna Dunnings always sounds whiny. Does she ever have a good day or is she naturally like this all the time? And why is it that the Toddler asks her to identify herself each and every time she is asked a question? Like no one knows who she is by now? And why doesn't he do that to everyone?
Andre Garner was absent, I guess after playing "Jonathan" on WGN radio, he is trying to avoid the press.
Bill Beavers, "the Hog with Big Nuts" has to jump in and throw, well...things around so you know he's there and needs nut room.
John Daley, .....well he will be John Daley.
Lance Tyson was busy jumping around and whispering in every one's ear, especially people who the Commissioners were questioning. Maybe he wanted to make sure they gave the right answers?
Well, and Todd, smiling, smirking, chuckling throughout the whole meeting. What else is new?

    Almost three more years to go. And we have Commissioners gearing up for the CC State's attorney election.....already. But I really look forward to that election, it's going to be good.

    Does anyone get the feeling that all's quite before the storm hits?

    I have heard that certain men in dark suits have been at the assessor's office asking about something called Certificate's of Error.

    Interesting Anon. And I wonder what these men were probing for in the assessor's office.

    Back in the fall of 07 a employee of the assessor of cook county was arrested for smoking crack cocaine while at work.

    Check this out from Patrick Fitzgerald's blog.

    Crook County

    Mostly a cookie-jar for political pals to dip into, and steal cookies. Mostly ghostly-payroller types who genuflect to the Commissioners. In the mean time, look at how lousy our forest presereves are. And the County Hospital fiasco.

    Wherever there is real work to be done, the Cook County Forest Preserves or the County Hospital, shirking abounds. The Hospital not so much, because you have dedicated nurses and doctors, who have compassion for others.

    Think of the Cook County Budget as an inverted pyramid, with a big fat top and a teeny-tipsy-tip. Wobbly, revenues dependent upon RAISING TAXES!

    TODD-ler Stroger is no fool, he knows how to twist arms and steal money by raising taxes!

    Useless people drawing pay and benefits are the huge majority being balanced on a tiny tottering-tip of real workers, including docs, nurses, pharmacissts, janitors, cooks.

    Look at the budget, filled with fat lazy, well-dressed, well-coifed, bejewelled and reeking of Juicy Couture perfume AND THAT'S JUST THE MEN! Lot's of useless gay men. Who make up for not knowing, by blowing. About 75% of the County budget is a gay-male mafia.

    Real work is done by schlubs who are either too honest, too dumb, or handicapped/with a disability and happy to have a job pushing a broom or doing some real work. That's about 1.7% of the budget.

    23.3% are a diverse mix of patronage and ineptitude biding time until their SWEET RETIREMENT kicks in.

    With the internet you would think some enterprising lawyers would put the County budget and revenues on-line via a FOIA, and with all those unemployed accountants from the belly-up firms like, Arthur Anderson, someone would offer forensic accounting of the Cook Countuy Budget.

    Hey, I just got a business idea!

    BRB, I have to make a phone call.

    Crook county sounds like Pottersville. Crooks in the county are allowing the employees to run loose.

    "Crooks in the county are allowing the employees to run loose."

    Many of the employees are the crooks. It will be hard to top my favorite of the court clerk with the UPS shipment of marijuana then took it to her car with little kids in it. That gives new meaning to the slogan, What can Brown do for you?

    How arrogant do you have to be to even consider getting away with something like that?

    This isn't just about a couple of key jerks like Toddler, the Hog with Big Nuts, and all their friends and family. The whole damn culture of government employees has to change. Even people on welfare entitlement programs don't feel that entitled.

    I've never, ever been a fan of propaganda, but if there was ever a group of people who needed a "re-education program" it is this group of crooks.

    I suspect there may be a drug ring operating in the assessors office and at the clerks office.

    "I suspect there may be a drug ring operating in the assessors office and at the clerks office."

    Crooks county + employees + crooked officials = Pottersville.

    Sad for Illinois.

    I don't know that we are talking about crooks. I think it's incompetence on a grand scale.

    Stroger, Houlihan and Orr. They all seem to have their agendas. Agendas which are not in the best interest of the people.
    KittyBowTie1 said...
    Yes, Oak Parker, what isn't knowingly illegal or tradition (i.e. passing out patronage jobs) is incompetence.
    Oak Parker said...
    And I look around to who may step up to the plate, Claypool, Quigley, Suferdin? All of them have an agenda. None of them can be trusted.

    And Jesse Jackson Jr. is supporting Larry Suffredin for CC State's Attorney....
    Anonymous said...
    both of them are communist

    Jackson is really just trying to position the lakefront liberals so he can run for mayor in 2011.

    Lord help us.
