    Will we hear more about Irrelevent Leader Tom Cross (47 - Medinah Country Club) and him winning another turn at “leading”?

    You would think Cross would be so pleased that it wouldn’t just have “sources”, you would think confirmation would be easy.

    So why is the government applying a 5% tax to the satellite companies? To level the playing field? What is that? If someone comes out with a better cheaper option, why does the playing field need leveled?

    I don’t even have satellite service but I’m sure the satellite companies invested big bucks to bring a product to people that doesn’t tear up the streets and have wires running through parks and neighborhoods. Tax the satellite companies for filling up the airways frequencies or something. Don’t tax to level the playing field.

    Let the free market level the playing field. The cable companies should be lobbying to reduce their local tax burdens instead of trying to penalize other companies. This is not what our government is suppose to be doing.

    –TwitterDanProft @DanProft
    The pardoned former convicted felon Mel Reynolds in for the race to replace @JJJr. Perfect. #twill #unfixit #ChicagoDemocrats–

    Proft is more inclined to good-government public servants like Larry Dominick and the Pesek boys. Plus, they can award no-bid p.r. contracts.
