President Obama

Madigan comparing Abraham Lincoln to Obummer? Oy vey... We don't have the money for thisRead More library... Maybe if the Dumbocrats hadn't spent $250M on an unused train station in Block 37, $55M on Maggie Daley Park, $60 M on a bike path fly over, $25M on a DePaul Stadium, a ton of money for bike lanes..... and on and on and on... and if we'd actually funded the pensions as we were supposed to, instead of employing "new math" to do the actuarial calculations...and if we'd actually paid our bills on time and lived within our means instead of blowing money on every 'tribute' - we might in some freaky alternate reality have the money to waste on an Obummer library, but we don't. So I'm gonna go with, ummm, NO. Vote every spendthrift out who votes for this...
Norb Locke April 18, 2014 at 01:45 am
Why would anyone want a Obama Library any where in the state of Illinois??? We have enough badRead More stuff in the state as it is! Put it in Kenya where it belongs.
Dan Cox April 18, 2014 at 05:08 am
TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH... 5 of the eight people who supposedly voted for the 100 Million, were notRead More even present when the vote was taken! Rep. Ed Sullivan of Mundelein is the ONLY one to raise his voice in opposition of this non-sense. This is Madigan/ Illinois politics.

I went to college and was recruited by a Fortune 50 company. I have worked for the same companyRead More since. Go to college! Go to college or live on welfare like McCluck who quit school when he was caught touching his little brother.

Judges are torturers and murderers too as is evidenced by all the people who are later freed.Read More They're politicians which is wrong.

Chicago Police community alert for Daniel and Owen Duignan.

Why if no amber alert are we looking for these children are with there mother.
Dennis Robaugh (Editor) April 17, 2014 at 12:34 pm
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, to activate an Amber Alert, "Plans require a childRead More be at risk for serious bodily harm or death before an alert can be issued."
Valerie Girote Ross April 17, 2014 at 12:43 pm
Why are all police searching if the children are not in harms way????

In reviewing the case, the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center has determined a warning in lieu of aRead More citation is sufficient in this case," a statement released by the VA stated on Thursday." So go drink some grape Kool aid it's only $00.89.
Ada Pers April 17, 2014 at 10:54 pm
Sounds like these federal 50 guys are getting their training and personal transaction skills fromRead More the IRS (Obama's Disgrace). An admonishment and the chance to pay for the product is definitely the way this should have been handled. Hey chief, report Monday for some retraining on common sense.
George Murphy April 17, 2014 at 11:47 pm
John B has to be a lib because he thinks backwards. If this guy intentionally refilled his sodas atRead More regular intervals, then fine, make him pay a reasonable penalty, which is perfectly justified if he did do something wrong. But, JB is defending a KGB-style operation, here. This is what the Bush and Obama (and quite possibly, Clinton) administrations got into motion. And, of course Obama is taking it to the max. Our entire government needs to be completely cleaned out, reduced in size and replenished with real people - not the Muppets!

I hope the topic of free lunch and breakfasts along with other help to lower income residents comesRead More up, they consider helping All Students!! As I pick up my grandson, I've met quite a few of the parents. Nice enough people but driving Mercedes, Lincoln and Cadillac SUVs, just about any vehicle we dream of owning! They've also told me where they live and quite a few live in 4-500,000 houses?? The kicker to this is I hear them talking about Free food, Free school supplies and Free field trips!! Doesn't the school system check out these parents before they let them participate in these Free Programs?? If my daughter and son-in-law didn't both work with me picking up the kids, they couldn't afford to even live here in OL.. I believe if you're going to give one child Free stuff, All the children should receive the same.. Whether it be lunch, supplies, or outings, we're the ones paying for all this too! I believe it's time for #122 to start taking care of All students Equally seeing how not All the parents are being Honest!!
Pat F April 17, 2014 at 03:19 pm
@ Roy Rekosh..You missed my point.. I want All students to get the same benefits from theRead More district..Whether it be food or other programs..If this would happen, there would be no reason for judging...This would put all the kids on the same platform and not having my grandkids asking why the others get free stuff and they can't.. As far as you said a lot of the Big Rollers(as you put it) such as yourself went broke with the economy bust, why don't you think on it and don't judge us..We are the honest working families that lived within our means and continue to survive the same way! Just because you lived the high life, don't expect us to pay your way..Sell your toys and expensive houses and live within your means!!

The day I found out Anthony would be receiving an adaptive bike, I broke down in tears. I could notRead More believe it! Thank you to the many GENEROUS donors who have made this all possible. Words cannot express my gratitude. This past Saturday was very exciting for Anthony. He was excited about his new bike and to wear a helmet! Please help us keep this campaign going for all of these children. Help spread the word through businesses, organizations, churches, family and friends. Post any ideas you may have to help kids with disabilities get a bike. Together we can make a difference in a child's life. Just look at those photos and smiles! Priceless!
Karen Tabascio April 17, 2014 at 08:26 am
Scotty was a very happy boy taking his bike home! How exciting this was for him!

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 07:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 07:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

Too bad this isn't possible in the Chicago area as stores around here don't have double and tripleRead More coupons. When I lived in Dallas I was able to save lots of money with the double and triple coupon savings that stores offered. Good on this woman for sharing the wealth!

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

The disease came from China! Aids came from Africa, other diseases come from Mexico but yet we letRead More people flood to this country and they bring those diseases with them!

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

Hey," No News in Natick" ( D Penta} Good idea, don't click if it's not local news. TheyRead More are almost out of business now, let's put them over the top. What little local news you get now on Patch, will be non-existent.
Heather Osrien April 17, 2014 at 12:31 pm
Just another copy cat. They crawl in thu the exit where the toy is dropped into when youRead More "win". Where were the oh so stupid parents while this was going on?
Maggie Magoo April 17, 2014 at 10:09 pm
This happened years ago in Little Falls, NJ when a child walked out of his house and into theRead More traffice on Route 23 and was killed.....what is wrong with parents? You go to the bathroom you take the child with you!!!!!! Lucky his Gardian Angel was watching over him!
Who's behind "the leaf" and why are they hiding?

Andy aka Tom Phelan you are one sick calf.
Jacob Matthews April 16, 2014 at 06:21 pm
It has been my experience on more than one occasion.....if the Oak Lawn Patch does not care for theRead More comment a resident has posted....it suddenly disappears. On more than one occasion I have posted my witness account to circumstances that were falsely reported. When I commented that the story was untrue, my comment was deleted. There were no derogatory statements made, no vulgar language, no violations of social media etiquette. My comments were strictly the truth which contradicted that of the reporter. It is dissapointing to have first hand knowledge of political plagerism. I no longer have faith in any subject matter that is posted in social media. It is no more than vigilante justice orchestrated by the misguided.
