  • Illinois Legislature Overrode Rauner Veto To Pass New Chicago Pension Law

    05/31/2016 2:46:23 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 5 replies
    On Monday, the Illinois legislature passed a bill lowering the amount the city of Chicago has to pay into police and firefighter pensions in 2016. To do this, the legislature overrode a veto from Gov. Bruce Rauner, confirming what we already knew: It's really, really, really, really hard to agree with Rauner about anything at this point. For no one would it be harder than Mayor Rahm Emanuel, once Rauner's buddy in vacationing and wine-sipping. Rahm became basically apoplectic when Rauner vetoed the pension bill on Friday, saying in a variety of press statements that Rauner's veto would trigger a...

    Caitlyn Jenner has taken Donald Trump up on his offer to use the restroom of her choosing while visiting one of his Trump Towers - and recorded the landmark moment for posterity. "A trans woman in New York, I gotta take a pee," Jenner says in a Facebook video filmed outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower near Central Park. "Last week Donald Trump said I could take a pee anywhere in a Trump facility," she continues. "I am gonna go take a pee in the ladies' room." After returning from her brief bathroom trip, Jenner thanks Trump for the...

    In an interview with The Advocate, Olympian-turned-reality-star Caitlyn Jenner expressed support for Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz. “I like Ted Cruz,” she declares. “I think he’s very conservative and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.” “I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that.” So why support Republicans? “Number 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t...

    Caitlyn Jenner is a conservative. We know this. We’ve heard it on a few different occasions and it doesn’t look like she’s backing down on it, even though it alienated her from some Democrats and many Republicans still don’t like her. Jenner really doesn’t care. She sticks by her convictions, which is generally admirable, but is a little confusing for people who have heard her idols speak about the trans* community. Ben Carson isn’t overly kind to them. Neither is Mike Huckabee. Among the most flippant is Ted Cruz, who has expressed a negative opinion of the LGBTQ+ community on...

    Talk about flip-flopping! Bruce Jenner AKA Caitlyn Jenner is making headlines again. Sources close to Jenner have disclosed that she's now having doubts whether she's really a woman and is in the process of asking everyone to call her Bruce again. Jenner claims that after lots of soul searching, she is certain about this decision. Earlier this year, Bruce Jenner made national headlines when he revealed on a 20/20 interview that he was going through a gender transition. Jenner's announcement was a huge victory for the LGBT community that was lacking a high profile celebrity. Jenner, is a retired professional...

    YoungCons ^ | August 9, 2015 | John S. Roberts
    ‘Comedian’ is a term that should be used very loosely when referring to D.L. Hughley. If you can remember one of his jokes right now or picture anything he’s done recently you’re probably ahead of the curve. Why Hughley is making waves at the moment is because he went on the highly liberal talking show The View and said that Bruce Jenner looks like Mrs. Doubtfire since his female transition. Naturally, the ladies didn’t take too kindly to Hughley’s remark. Oh, I forgot to mention that D.L. is highly liberal himself. After the ESPYs, the politically incorrect funnyman received backlash...

    Bruce Springsteen is the latest famous face to call for justice for Trayvon Martin. At his show in Limerick, Ireland, the 63-year-old dedicated his protest song American Skin (41 Shots), to the 17-year-old who was shot dead in February 2012 by neighbourhood vigilante George Zimmerman. According to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, after seeing the song written on a fan's sign Springsteen decided to play the track, dedicating it to Martin.

    ALBANY - A judge has refused to order a state commission that monitors conditions at county jails to rewrite its final report on the suicide of an inmate at the behest of Ontario County officials who argued, in part, that the findings would make it harder to defend themselves against a civil suit filed by the prisoner's widow. The Commission of Correction acted within the powers given it by state law when it adopted the report on the 2009 suicide of Bruce Morgan in the Ontario County Correctional Facility in Canandaigua, Acting Supreme Court Justice Richard Platkin in Albany.

    One of the prevailing debates in the GOP these days (if not the only one) is whether or not Governor Sarah Palin will, or should, run for president. Not only should she, she must if the GOP has any hope of having a legitimate nominee whom everyone can support for the 2012 election. Why? Without Palin in the race a massive segment of the GOP base—Tea Party patriots and other independent conservatives—will find themselves once again with the prospect of choosing from a manipulated field of Next-In-Line GOP establishment liberals. And make no mistake—that is exactly who will prevail. Despite...

    In an interview with The New York Times, Bruce Springsteen says he shouldn't have made a deal with Wal-Mart. This month, the store started exclusively selling a Springsteen greatest-hits CD. Some fans were critical because Springsteen has been a longtime supporter of worker's rights, and Wal-Mart has faced criticism for its labor practices. Springsteen's team didn't vet the issue as closely as it should have, and that he "dropped the ball on it," he told the Times for a story to be published in Sunday editions and previewed on its Web site.

"I regret that this simple ministerial act is the latest focus of political consternation and unneeded tension," he wrote. "These publicized pressures are added reason I asked the speaker to allow me 90 seconds right after my oath to speak to my new...

Long known for his pointed conservative views and often abrasive personality... He told the vacancy committee meeting that he plans to push for tax cuts and limited government with the same ferocity that has marked his public career.

While rock stars his age are content to tour with their greatest hits, Springsteen launched, last week, what may become his most controversial work as a songwriter. Even now, Springsteen is an artist in progress, having moved from stories about girls and cars to populist ballads that echo the dust bowl days of Woody Guthrie. Springsteen has put all that together now in his first tour with the E Street Band in four years. As correspondent Scott Pelley...

    Scottish archaeologists say they have located the exact location of Scone Abbey, where Robert the Bruce is believed to have been crowned king. The abbey -- founded by Alexander I in 1114 on a site believed to have been sacred for centuries -- was burned during the Reformation. Scone Palace, built in the 16th century and rebuilt in the 19th, survives. "The importance of Scone -- where kings were made and parliaments met -- is only matched by how little we know about the reality of the place," Oliver O'Grady of Glasgow University told The Scotsman. O'Grady, one of the...

A women-centered radio network isn’t a bad idea: Lots of successful media outlets specifically target women, from sappy television romances on Lifetime and Oxygen to family-centered morning shows and magazines. The new all-women creation, Greenstone Media, follows a similar model. It endeavors to be entertaining as well as informative, and relate to women’s everyday challenges with family and work. Steinem told Reuters that the network...

    The Dixie Chicks appear to be more popular than the president these days. President Bush's approval rating has plummeted, but the Chicks are on top of the pop and country charts with their first album since publicly criticizing Bush three years ago. They did it without the support of country radio, which largely ignored the Dixie Chicks after lead singer Natalie Maines told a London audience in 2003 that the group was ashamed Bush was from their home state of Texas. The new album, "Taking the Long Way," took the No. 1 spot Wednesday on the country albums chart and...

If opened one may get a refund only with dogged persistence. I teach, design, and help implement ethical marketing techniques. This is a textbook example of a ripoff small enough that most people will just absorb the cost rather than fight for a refund. Guys like this give small business consultants a bad name. It's...

    After their tiny plane crashed deep in the jungles of southern Colombia, three American civilians on a mission to search for cocaine labs, drug planes and, occasionally, guerrilla units were taken hostage by Marxist rebels. A year later, the men's families say the captives have been all but forgotten. Some say that is the way American officials and the men's employers want it to be. The three Americans — Marc Gonsalves, Keith Stansell and Thomas Howes — worked cloaked in secrecy for two subsidiaries of Northrop Grumman, the huge military contractor, in an arrangement used increasingly by the United States...

    "I've got 25 years of credibility built up, and this isn't something I've moved into lightly," Bruce Springsteen says on the eve of his first Vote for Change concert in Philadelphia this Friday. "But this is the one where you spend some of that credibility. It's an emergency intervention." Or as one of America's great musicians explained in a recent New York Times Op-Ed, "Personally, for the last twenty five years I have always stayed one step away from partisan politics...This year, however, for many of us the stakes have risen too high to sit this election out." So, putting...

    NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- U.S. journalists face an ethical conundrum this political season: If they attend one of the pro-John Kerry concerts headlined by Bruce Springsteen, are they breaching industry ethics? Springsteen, who has demonstrated his political agenda in many cases through such songs as "Born in the USA" and "My Hometown," has prompted a wide debate in the newspaper industry. This fall, Springsteen is headlining a series of concerts in the swing states to raise money for anti-President Bush ads. The nation's editors are divided on the issue, but many say they are discouraging their colleagues from going...

    (CNSNews.com) - A government watchdog group says the finances of the "Vote for Change" rock-music tour deserve the same scrutiny as the finances for the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ad campaign. The controversial Swift Boat ad features Vietnam Veterans who accuse Sen. John F. Kerry of lying about his war record. The Democratic Party says none of the veterans appearing in the ad served on a Swift Boat with Kerry. Democrats call the ad completely false -- a smear campaign. The Vote for Change tour - featuring Bruce Springsteen and other anti-Bush pop music celebrities - is billed...

    New York Times August 5, 2004 OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR Chords for Change By BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN nation's artists and musicians have a particular place in its social and political life. Over the years I've tried to think long and hard about what it means to be American: about the distinctive identity and position we have in the world, and how that position is best carried. I've tried to write songs that speak to our pride and criticize our failures. These questions are at the heart of this election: who we are, what we stand for, why we fight. Personally, for the last...

    Toe think again... relic of The Bruce YAKUB QURESHIA bone, said to be the toe of Robert The Bruce, is the centrepiece of a new exhibit. Picture: Donald MacLeod HE STOLE into the abbey in the dead of night, intent on stealing a personal memento of Scotland’s greatest king. Not a thief nor a grave robber but a respected town dignitary and "man of science", Joseph Paton found himself irresistibly drawn to the body of this icon of Scotland’s 14th-century fight for independence. Reaching forward, he snapped off a toe from the remains of Robert the Bruce and held aloft...
