  • Carl,

    Aren't you going to question why Danny Davis took money from a terrorist group for a junket to Sri Lanka? And that he is one of the top congressmen in terms of having his hand out for these ethically questionable trips?

    Oh, I forgot. You're a paid schill for Davis. I'm sure if he had an Italian last name you'd be all over it.

    Hypocrite.

  • I looked at the article in question this morning on the front page of the Forest Park Review. I'll be commenting on it later.

    What would make you think I'm schilling for Danny Davis?

    I criticized Davis on the Iraq War.

    And I criticized Davis for not standing up to Republicans shifting the tax burden from the income tax to the property tax in the Forest Park Review.

    Other than these two incidents where I criticized Davis my only writings about him were strictly news (e.g. he was at a meeting and said something) or announcements of community events.

    But if Davis had an Italian last name I'd probably have criticized him for his Lieberman-like stand on the Iraq War and his attempt to shift the cost for the school-based health center to the Proviso homeowners. Of course, these are the same criticisms I've made without Davis having an Italian name.

  • I forgot about this entry on Danny Davis, even more critical than the other two.

  • I deleted a post by my testicles in another discussion for being off topic.

    I'm in the process of writing about the Wednesday Journal article on Danny Davis.

    The short version is that the article is bullshit for a few different reasons.

  • So Karen Yarbrough takes money from Exelon and Bruno. People killing her community. And Danny Davis takes money from terrorist. People killing our country. And this is what you support Carl? Amazing.

  • c.u.b. fan, did you read the article on Danny Davis?

    c.u.b. fan, what sort of election reforms do you favor? What is your standard for determining if a campaign contribution is tainted?
