Back the Bid for Chicago ’16 Summer Olympics…NOT!

Now that we are close to an Olympic Committee decision on who would get to host the 2016 Olympics, the City of Chicago under the Mayor Daley regime with its cohorts of business men include Pat Ryan, former Aon executive who stands to profit substantially on the backs of taxpayers are pumping and pimping the benefits of hosting supported by local celebrities and media including President Obama.

While Cook County which Chicago is located in, continues to suffer the second highest unemployment of the major three cities (Los Angeles being the highest and New York being the lowest) in this recession, one has to ask how will three weeks of Olympic activity and $2-4 billion later in expenditures build long term benefits for its citizens in terms of creating sustainable jobs, increasing education for its labor force or increasing efficiency of tax dollars?  Will Chicago suddenly be competitive in the global economy because it is the host for 3 weeks to athletes competing for gold?  Will Chicago solve the wealth inequity between the wealthiest top 10% versus everyone else?

So far, the Daley administration, the Chicago City Council of 50 aldermans and the sycophants that line up out the door of Chicago City Hall have nothing but false promises to defend their bid that supposedly will bring “wealth” to the city and that taxpayers money would not be used but what are local governments using but local taxpayers money?  If you believe that I have a baby Lochness Monster I’m raising in Lake Michigan to show you but I would have to charge admission.

Citizens of Chicago are sheeps and the Daley political machine is fleecing Chicagoans for every nickel meanwhile serious issues continue to plague the City of Chicago under Mayor Daley.

Chicago Mayor, Boss Daley & Croney Pat Ryan Guarantees Olympics to Fatten Pockets of Friends & Family

How dumb are Chicagoans to simply rollover and let Boss Daley to act unilaterally to guarantee the loss of preparing for the Olympics.  This guarantee will cover any Olympic build out overruns at the expense to its citizens who are struggling to keep jobs, pay bills and taxes.

In all these Chicago city projects for the Olympics, where would all the money flow? Who’s controlling the construction, and the labor to be used? Who’s going to skim from the top?  What happens when the Olympics is over in 2 weeks?

In London, they are already getting warning signals of  construction costs to go over their projections.  The Chinese Central Government, the anti-free speech and other liberties we Americans take for granted, claims their Olympic made money can’t be trusted.

Remember the Boeing deal which the city of Chicago gave them $60 million tax breaks to move their headquarters? Didn’t the Mayor and the city’s aldermans said it would have long term benefits?

Most recently, the city faced a budget deficit and had to lease the city’s parking meters to a private organization led by Morgan Stanely which caused massive parking meter rate increases to the city’s residences and businesses.  Another form of tax despite the talking heads in Chicago’s City Halls.  So where are all these “must do” and “will have long term benefits” projects done for the residents of Chicago?  If you ask me, it sure reads like another Madoff & Stanford  ponzi scheme rolling expenditures out of Chicago taxpayers pockets and into city contractors of the mayor and the city council.

To this date, I still don’t understand why to park in the streets of the city, one has to purchase a Chicago City Sticker, and a “neighborhood sticker”. This is in addition to registering the vehicle with the state.  Now on top of all these annual fees, Chicagoans must pay extraordinary meter rates.

Listen to the pundits rationalize Daley’s shenanigans.  Bottom line, Boss Daley is working on a stimulus plan of his own pocket and those he surrounds himself with standing in the shadows.
