Bleak Friday

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, has been the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season.  This year, in Chicago, it will be called Bleak Friday.  Thanksgiving will not be very thankful this year either.  Maybe we can just change the name to Taxgiving.

Those lovable Democratic rascals decided to postpone sending property tax bills until November 22.  Payment will be due in December, which shoots Christmas right in the keester too.  By law, the bills must be sent by August 1.  Law?  What care Democrats for the law?  As John Kass opines, Mike Madigan and his grubby sidekick, Joe “The Lobster” Berrios, ordered the law to be broken.  Tax bills will go out when they say.  And they say November due in December.

 The stores on State street and Michigan Avenue will be draped with black, instead of festive holiday themes.  Instead of a Christmas Tree in Daley Plaza, there will be a Taxgiving Tree.  Bureaucratic elves will be on hand to pick your pockets of any extra you have left over.  Instead of rosy cheeked Santas, with sleighs and reindeer decorating stores, there will be skeletal Scrooges in hearses.  The Sal Army bell ringers will be replaced with ski-masked Democratic precinct muggers in purple shits trimmed in yellow.

Holidays?  That is just so much nonsense.  You should gladly give money to this felonocracy, not waste it on silly meals of gratitude and frivolous holiday gifts.  Do not forget, your favorite holiday charities do not need money either.  They should be giving too.  Madigan and Berrios have not figured out a politically palatable way to rip them off- yet.

So this year, we will celebrate a cornucopia of corruption on the last Thursday of November- Taxgiving Day.  On December 25, we will celebrate Criminalmas.  Mike Madigan and Joe Berrios will celebrate the miracle of the holiday season- the birth of Dearth.
