I am tired of the corruption in politics and poor choices we are given.

I am tired of politics and having sub-par choices for elections. I propose a new law for elections. We need a "none of the above" check box on every ballot for every office.

Cook county wolves in sheep's clothing.

Why do all the republicans in Chicagoland base their signage and websites in blue and make it hard to find theii party affiliation on their websites?

Sit Back and Watch

Operation Moonlight reminds me of Dick Cheney's September 11th maneuvers. Send them miles away, then sit back and watch.

ISIS Recruits: Is the Grass Really Greener?

reversing citizen united

Dear Thom,

The supreme court has run amuck in the last few years with the Citizens United, Mccutchen and the gutting of the voting rights act. I am putting forward an idea and if you think it is reasonable I would hope you could address it to Senator Sanders or any other member of Congress you might talk to.

An Exceptional Legacy Program

Sometimes when weapons supposedly intended for Kurdish fighters in Syria go to the islamic state, there is no learning curve for the arms dealer or the mongers. And that is an exceptional legacy program.
