Chicago Teacher’s Strike

Posted by madjillmom on September 11, 2012

They are paid around 75,000 per year. 79% of 8th graders do not read on grade level. Chicago spends over $13,000 per student. A 16% pay raise over 4 years isn’t good enough. A monster the Dems have nurtured and loved is turning and eating their brethren.


Can Democrats run anything?

Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, and his Priorities USA

Posted by madjillmom on September 6, 2012

Yesterday, Rahm Emanuel announce that he will be stepping down as co-chair of the Obama campaign and will instead join up with Priorities USA, the Obama super PAC that recently ran a truth challenged ad implying Romney was responsible for a woman’s death from cancer.  Obama and campaign ran from the ad but did not denounce it and Priorities USA.

Is this change because Rahm sees the handwriting on the wall and wants to be somewhere else when/if Obama looses? Is he changing because he can now totally ignore the truth and run ads accusing Romney of anything? Do they who railed against the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling now run into the open arms of an evil super PAC?

Chicago is a city where shootings and murders abound, where teachers are going on strike, where union pensions are bankrupting the city, where Louis Farrakhan is welcome, but Chick-Fil-A is not. I would wonder why Rahm Emanuel has any time on his hands to work for Obama or Priorities USA.  It seems to me that Rahm should get his priorities straight and work a lot harder to fix Chicago, a full-time job if I ever saw one.

Chick-Fil-A and Chicago’s Mayor

Posted by madjillmom on July 27, 2012

Chicago has a lot of problems.  Rampant crime and a bankrupt government come to mind.  Not to mention a corrupt Democratic machine that controls everything.  Murders and shootings are huge and not going down.  Yet strangely, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is really concerned about Chick-Fil-A’s president’s opinion on traditional marriage.  What a bunch of hooey.

Now the gays have decided to have a kiss-in at the restaurant.  That’s also really nice. Rahm, perhaps you should worry about the gangs shooting people tonight and not the Christians selling great chicken sandwiches.  Maybe you should call the gay group having a kiss-in and suggest that they don’t do that.  The black gangs won’t like the gay kiss-in.  They might bring guns and shot some gay couples.  I can promise you that it won’t be the Christian restaurant owners who will cause you any problems.

Chick-Fil-A and Gay Marriage

Posted by madjillmom on July 25, 2012

I was listening to Glenn Beck the other day about Chick-Fil-A and the brouhaha over their support of traditional marriage.  Beck was asking why support for traditional marriage is construed as hatred of gays and discrimination of gays. I think people are just taking a page out of Obama’s book. Obama runs around every day telling us that Republicans are against regulations.  What Republicans want is common sense and necessary regulations that don’t strangle business and enterprise.  Republicans don’t want no regulations. Obama always uses this type of all or nothing argument.

Now, Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel and the mayor of Boston tell  us that Chick-Fil-A is not welcome because they are for traditional marriage.  These cities will turn away a business and good food to gin up this argument that support of traditional marriage is gay hatred.  This type of boycott is really stupid. I guess the Catholic Church and all Mosques are not welcome in Chicago and Boston.

So now it is ok to discriminate against corporations and individuals if they don’t tow the party line. You are not allow to think your way, you must think my way.  We don’t like your kind around here.  You support traditional marriage.

I love Chick-Fil-A.  I have never been asked by their employees if I am gay or if I am a supporter of gay marriage. They have their views and they do not discriminate in their service. Being against gay marriage doesn’t mean you hate gay people.

I will bet that the Justice Department will soon file suit against a Christian Chick-Fil-A franchisee for not hiring a young gay person or a person in a gay marriage.
