What’s a sweetheart like you… Oh, forget it, I’m in enough trouble already

Sunday, Jan 30, 2005

OK, my lame attempt at humor got a friend in trouble with his girlfriend last week. Oops. Bad form. Don’t need that sort of reputation.

I offered to post a photo of Charlie with his significant other in order to help patch things up and get myself out of the doghouse.

So, here it is. By the way, her name is Amy Rider.

Enjoy.

Truth Girl shuts it down

Sunday, Jan 30, 2005

What started as a blog about Alan Keyes eventually transformed into a liberal, evangelical take on the regligious right. But, no more. From tonight’s blog:

I can’t do it–that is work and keep up with the religious right, or religious left for that matter.

Maybe I’ll be back for the 2006 election.

But until then,

Farewell.

LaHood hater

Sunday, Jan 30, 2005

Somebody doesn’t like Ray LaHood much:

Welcome to NoLaHood.com! This website is dedicated to providing the people of Illinois and especially the people our state’s 18th Congressional District with better leadership. For too long, We The People have been misled by a “Republican” congressman who does not stand for our values and cannot be held accountable for his actions because he faces only token opposition. This website will expose the truth about his record and the history of his district, and serve as a grassroots focal point to push for new leadership in 2006.

Ray LaHood likes to wrap himself up in the mantle of Lincoln and Reagan, because he represents a small portion of their old stomping grounds. In reality, Congressman LaHood is a RINO (Republican In Name Only) who is far removed from the political philosophies and integrity of those individuals. NoLaHood.com gives viewers an opportunity to examine the full record of the Congressman, as well as look at several alternatives to his liberal policies, and judge for yourself.

Really awful MIDI music, but the visceral hate is not to be missed.

High-tax suburbia

Sunday, Jan 30, 2005

Tax-raising suburban Republicans? Bigtime. Better call these guys and tell them that lots of locals aren’t following the script (not trying to pick on the CrossBloggers, but they take so many shots at the city that a little turnabout should occasionally be in order).

Suburbanites face an outpouring of new tax and bond referendums in the April 5 election from government agencies grappling with everything from overcrowded schools to understaffed libraries.

“I’m seeing some numbers in this election that are larger than anything we’ve seen before,” says Daniel White, executive director of the Illinois State Board of Elections. […]

Plainfield School District 202, which saw its enrollment last autumn rise by more than 10% to exceed 22,000, wants approval for a $220.5-million bond issue to finance eight new schools. […]

Indian Prairie School District 204 in Aurora hopes to raise $130 million in its referendum, with $90 million of that for a new high school. St. Charles District 303 is seeking $86 million for two new schools. […]

The Will County Forest Preserve District is looking to raise $95 million for land acquisition, and Kane County is seeking $75 million. […]

Sales taxes are under pressure, too. The village of Itasca is looking to bump up its sales tax a half a percentage point, from 6.75% to 7.25%, which would raise more than $2 million annually and help pay for expansion of a wastewater treatment plant. […]

And even with those extraordinarily high taxes, they’re still a long, long commute from stuff like this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and, well, you get the idea.

And corruption? It’s not just in the city.
