The city is going broke, it is scandal plagued, it is being ripped off by contractors and vendors, especially the minority and so called disadvantaged ones, there is no ethics in government, and the future does not look any better than today. We are not better off and getting worse.
So, what does candidate Rahm Emanuel do to solve the major problems? He unveils his Green program. That’s right folks. Green. He wants us all to be greenie weenies at a cost to the city of 100 million dollars. Forget all those scandals, the corruption, the deficit and budget holes. Never mind taxes will be raised, or new ones created, over our objections. Don’t worry if the garbage isn’t picked up, the snow isn’t plowed, or there is not a cop or fireman when you need one. Just go Green. That’s the ticket. The solution.
This is typical Democratic Party playbook. When there are severe crises, just divert people’s attention. Just throw out some feel good stuff. It is appealing. People fall for it. You look like a star. But, the problems of waste, fraud, mismanagement, and corruption will go on. Who cares? Green is important right? It is all the rave. It is all equine excrement.
Rahm will not solve the city’s massive problems- the problems the Democratic Machine has created and let get out of control for decades. He will just come up with touchy feely plans that cost more money and solve noting. It is all window dressing. To make him look good. Instead of a campaign manager, he should hire a draper.
This is the Obama agenda in Chicago. All flash. No substance. The country is going to hell in a hand basket and what is Obama doing? Pushing Utopian fantasy programs. Legislation and policies which do not solve the major problems plaguing us right now. They just appease small minority blocs of voters. Rahm is the same. Rahm designed the fantasy agenda for Obama. Now, he is bringing it to our burg.
We will still be the most corrupt city in America. We will still be broke. The people will still suffer with higher taxes and fees. But, by golly, we will be Green.
One wonders what other Utopian altruistic nonsense he will come up with before election day. Maybe replacing the horses in the Police Mounted unit and the carriage companies with unicorns?
