The Chicago Way


* * * Wow, is Illinois and Chicago great or what?
 
Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
 
Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago.
 
221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US. (where is the MEDIA Coverage)
 
President: Barack Hussein Obama
 
Senator: Dick Durbin
 
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
 
Governor: Pat Quinn
 
House leader: Mike Madigan
 
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
 
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
 
The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
 
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .
 
Of course, they're all blaming each other.
 
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
 
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
 
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 
Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
 
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.
 
And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us???
 
 
George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house.  Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is...that's right, also in the big house.  And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago.  That is because he is fighting being sent to...that's right, thebig house.
 
The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.
 
But you know what?  As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

A Harsh Truth


TODAY'S LESSON IN IRONY
Our Department of Agriculture, is ever increasingly proud to be distributing the largest amount of free meals and food stamps to over 46 million people. 
  
Meanwhile ------  The National Parks Service, administered by the Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." 
Their stated reason for the policy is because "the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves." 
  
This ends today's lesson.

A sad story


Please
take a moment to digest this provocative article by  Rabbi Pruzansky from
Teaneck , N.J.    It is far and away the most succinct and
thoughtful explanation of how our nation is changing.  The article
appeared in The Israel National News, and is directed to Jewish
readership.  70% of American Jews vote as Democrats.  The Rabbi has
some interesting comments in that regard. 
 
 
Rabbi
Steven Pruzansky is the spiritual leader of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in
Teaneck , New Jersey .
 
The
most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 is that
Americans voted for the status quo – for the incumbent President and for a
divided Congress. They must enjoy gridlock, partisanship, incompetence,
economic stagnation and avoidance of responsibility. And fewer people voted. 
 
But
as we awake from the nightmare, it is important to eschew the facile
explanations for the Romney defeat that will prevail among the chattering
classes. Romney did not lose because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy that
devastated this area, nor did he lose because he ran a poor campaign, nor did
he lose because the Republicans could have chosen better candidates, nor did
he lose because Obama benefited from a slight uptick in the economy due to the
business cycle.
 
Romney
lost because he didn’t get enough votes to win.
 
That
might seem obvious, but not for the obvious reasons. Romney lost because the
conservative virtues – the traditional American virtues – of liberty, hard
work, free enterprise, private initiative and aspirations to moral greatness –
no longer inspire or animate a majority of the electorate.
 
The
simplest reason why Romney lost was because it is impossible to compete
against free stuff.
 
Every
businessman knows this; that is why the “loss leader” or the giveaway is such
a powerful marketing tool. Obama’s America is one in which free stuff is given
away: the adults among the 47,000,000 on food stamps clearly recognized for
whom they should vote, and so they did, by the tens of millions; those who –
courtesy of Obama – receive two full years of unemployment benefits (which, of
course, both disincentivizes looking for work and also motivates people to
work off the books while collecting their windfall) surely know for whom to
vote. The lure of free stuff is irresistible.
 
The
defining moment of the whole campaign was the revelation of the
secretly-recorded video in which Romney acknowledged the difficulty of winning
an election in which “47% of the people” start off against him because they
pay no taxes and just receive money – “free stuff” – from the government.
Almost half of the population has no skin in the game – they don’t care about
high taxes, promoting business, or creating jobs, nor do they care that the
money for their free stuff is being borrowed from their children and from the
Chinese. They just want the free stuff that comes their way at someone else’s
expense. In the end, that 47% leaves very little margin for error for any
Republican, and does not bode well for the future.
 
It is
impossible to imagine a conservative candidate winning against such
overwhelming odds. People do vote their pocketbooks. In essence, the people
vote for a Congress who will not raise their taxes, and for a President who
will give them free stuff, never mind who has to pay for it.
 
That
engenders the second reason why Romney lost: the inescapable conclusion that
the electorate is ignorant and uninformed. Indeed, it does not pay to be an
informed voter, because most other voters – the clear majority – are
unintelligent and easily swayed by emotion and raw populism. That is the
indelicate way of saying that too many people vote with their hearts and not
their heads. That is why Obama did not have to produce a second term agenda,
or even defend his first-term record. He needed only to portray Mitt Romney as
a rapacious capitalist who throws elderly women over a cliff, when he is not
just snatching away their cancer medication, while starving the poor and
cutting taxes for the rich.
 
During
his 1956 presidential campaign, a woman called out to Adlai Stevenson:
“Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!” Stevenson called back:
“That’s not enough, madam, we need a majority!” Truer words were never spoken. 
 
Obama
could get away with saying that “Romney wants the rich to play by a different
set of rules” – without ever defining what those different rules were; with
saying that the “rich should pay their fair share” – without ever defining
what a “fair share” is; with saying that Romney wants the poor, elderly and
sick to “fend for themselves” – without even acknowledging that all these
government programs are going bankrupt, their current insolvency only papered
over by deficit spending.
 
Similarly,
Obama (or his surrogates) could hint to blacks that a Romney victory would
lead them back into chains and proclaim to women that their abortions and
birth control would be taken away. He could appeal to Hispanics that Romney
would have them all arrested and shipped to Mexico and unabashedly state that
he will not enforce the current immigration laws. He could espouse the
furtherance of the incestuous relationship between governments and unions – in
which politicians ply the unions with public money, in exchange for which the
unions provide the politicians with votes, in exchange for which the
politicians provide more money and the unions provide more votes, etc., even
though the money is gone.
 
Obama
also knows that the electorate has changed – that whites will soon be a
minority in America (they’re already a minority in California) and that the
new immigrants to the US are primarily from the Third World and do not share
the traditional American values that attracted immigrants in the 19th and 20th
centuries. It is a different world, and a different America . Obama is part of
that different America , knows it, and knows how to tap into it. That is why
he won.
 
Obama
also proved again that negative advertising works, invective sells, and harsh
personal attacks succeed. That Romney never engaged in such diatribes points
to his essential goodness as a person; his “negative ads” were simple facts,
never personal abuse – facts about high unemployment, lower take-home pay, a
loss of American power and prestige abroad, a lack of leadership, etc. As a
politician, though, Romney failed because he did not embrace the devil’s
bargain of making unsustainable promises.
 
It
turned out that it was not possible for Romney and Ryan – people of substance,
depth and ideas – to compete with the shallow populism and platitudes of their
opponents. Obama mastered the politics of envy – of class warfare – never
reaching out to Americans as such but to individual groups, and cobbling
together a winning majority from these minority groups.  If an Obama
could not be defeated – with his record and his vision of America , in which
free stuff seduces voters – it is hard to envision any change in the future.
The road to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and to a European-socialist economy –
those very economies that are collapsing today in Europe – is paved. 
 
For
Jews, mostly assimilated anyway and staunch Democrats, the results demonstrate
again that liberalism is their Torah. Almost 70% voted for a president widely
perceived by Israelis and most committed Jews as hostile to Israel . They
voted to secure Obama’s future at America ’s expense and at Israel ’s expense
– in effect, preferring Obama to Netanyahu by a wide margin. A dangerous time
is ahead. Under present circumstances, it is inconceivable that the US will
take any aggressive action against Iran and will more likely thwart any
Israeli initiative. The US will preach the importance of negotiations up until
the production of the first Iranian nuclear weapon – and then state that the
world must learn to live with this new reality.
 
But
this election should be a wake-up call to Jews. There is no permanent empire,
nor is there is an enduring haven for Jews anywhere in the exile. The American
empire began to decline in 2007, and the deterioration has been exacerbated in
the last five years. This election only hastens that decline. Society is
permeated with sloth, greed, envy and materialistic excess. It has lost its
moorings and its moral foundations.The takers outnumber the givers, and that
will only increase in years to come.  The “Occupy” riots across this
country in the last two years were mere dress rehearsals for what lies ahead –
years of unrest sparked by the increasing discontent of the unsuccessful who
want to seize the fruits and the bounty of the successful, and do not
appreciate the slow pace of redistribution.
 
If
this election proves one thing, it is that the Old America is gone. And, sad
for the world, it is not coming back.
