I am SICK of all this bullshit people are writing about the Iraq war. I am abso-fucking-lutely sick to death of it. What the fuck do most of you know about it? You watch it on TV and read the commentaries in the newspaper or Newsweek or whatever god damn yuppie news rag you subscribe to and think you're all such fucking experts that you can scream at each other like five year old about whether you're right or not. Let me tell you something: unless you've been there, you don't know a god damn thing about it. It you haven't been shot at in that fucking hell hole, SHUT THE FUCK UP! How do I dare say this to you moronic war supporters who are "Supporting our Troops" and waving the flag and all that happy horse shit? I'll tell you why. I'm a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq. My husband, also a Marine, served several. I left the service six months ago because I got pregnant while he was home on leave and three days ago I get a visit from two men in uniform who hand me a letter and tell me my husband died in that fucking festering sand-pit. He should have been home a month ago but they extended his tour and now he's coming home in a box. You fuckers and that god-damn lying sack of shit they call a president are the reason my husband will never see his baby and my kid will never meet his dad. And you know what the most fucked up thing about this Iraq shit is? They don't want us there. They're not happy we came and they want us out NOW. We fucked up their lives even worse than they already were and they're pissed off. We didn't help them and we're not helping them now. That's what our soldiers are dying for. Oh while I'm good and worked up, the government doesn't even have the decency to help out the soldiers whos lives they ruined. If you really believe the military and the government had no idea the veterans' hospitals were so fucked up, you are a god-damn retard. They don't care about us. We're disposable. We're numbers on a page and they'd rather forget we exist so they don't have to be reminded about the families and lives they ruined while they're sipping their cocktails at another fund raiser dinner. If they were really concerned about supporting the troops, they'd bring them home so their families wouldn't have to cry at a graveside and explain to their children why mommy or daddy isn't coming home. Because you can't explain it. We're not fighting for our country, we're not fighting for the good of Iraq's people, we're fighting for Bush's personal agenda. Patriotism my ass. You know what? My dad served in Vietnam and NOTHING HAS CHANGED. So I'm pissed. I'm beyond pissed. And I'm going to go to my husband funeral and recieve that flag and hang it up on the wall for my baby to see when he's older. But I'm not going to tell him that his father died for the stupidty of the American government. I'm going to tell him that his father was a hero and the best man I ever met and that he loved his country enough to die for it, because that's all true and nothing will be solved by telling my son that his father was sent to die by people who didn't care about him at all. Fuck you, war supporters, George W. Bush, and all the god damn mother fuckers who made the war possible. I hope you burn in hell.

The TRUTH is that Gene Moore, Cook County of Recorder of Deeds, made the 3rd page of the Chicago Sun Times on Saturday. He has been caught red handed practicing in patronage hiring and firing. Welch and Moore reign is up! The District 209's investigation on patronage hriing and firing is well on its way.

For those who prefer not to delve deeply into the meaning of the words black underclass , which not even remotely approaches the word failure, we Blacks here are an easy target of ridicule. Not a day goes by that I don't hear another Black "so called leader"spout to me complaints about our leaders , which conceal rivalry behind solidarity. Everybody wants to unseat a winner.The fact is that the Black community of Proviso, most of it, has come to the realization that instead of working together to get ahead, they would rather tear down other blacks and instead work with whites, so they can become the big kahuna!Chris Welch is my conscience in the face of racial injustice. And when Welch, deals with the negative aspects of the African-American community, he does not engage in mockery or vituperation. He broaches it with brotherly concern.So stop this madness and reflect in our inner selves and realize what a tragedy it is to fight one another and instead focus on improving our communities, where are children can go to school and learn,where are community is crime free, where bussinesses thrive and where peace and respect for others is prominent!

The truth is that Shirley Madlocks's daughter, Sheena House, was given a student worker job at 209's last BOE meeting. Shouldn't student worker jobs go to students who were or are actually 209 students? Shirley Madlock's daughter went to a private high school in River Forest. Is this pay back for Madlocks's robo calls during the school board election?Patronage hiring at its best. Welch and the board majority should learn a lesson from Moore's county troubles with patronage hiring and firing.

sThe act of patronage hiring is so prevalent in 209, the idea of having a human resource department is a joke. Over the past two weeks, 2 jobs were posted with deadlines being 6/18, however in the minutes for the board meeting in June, showed that these jobs have already been filled. How could that happened if the closing date hadn't came.What about the pregnant friend of a friend of Nikita Johnson, who first go a job as the switchboard operator and 8 weeks later was promoted to head cashier. She does not have the qualifications listed on the job ad. By the way she is going on maternity leave in a couple of weeks, so what happens with the cashier position?Patch the principal at East, has his secretary's daughter working as a student worker, but most folks know that the secretary and her daughter reside on the southside. I guess they couldn't find a kid that lives in a district to work summer school.The Chris Welch/Nikita Johnson/Stan Field gravy train has to stop. The people of Proviso Township should be in an uproar.Oh and don't forget that Patch's secretary also got paid extra to esccort children on a field trip. along with her $8,000 stipend for putting on plays which no one attends.Proviso hiring and firing polciies are a joke and I smell a few lawsuits coming in the next few months.
