Emanuel escalates attacks on public workers, unions...

Today Mr. Emanuel was defeated by a vote of 2-1 in the Illinois Appellate Court. His fight to stay on the Chicago ballot for mayor continues tomorrow as he will appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court. He would need to convince 4 of 7 justices to hear the case. Then he would need 4 of 7 justices to over rule the 2-1 decision. Typically this doesn't happen. Also, Justice Anne Burke is powerful alderman Ed Burke's wife. Ed Burke has endorsed Gery Chico for mayor, that's 1 of 7 at least he won't be getting. The odds are against him. Look what he has been saying.

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
