IS IT TRUE September 19, 2012

IS IT TRUE that today is of all things designated as International Talk Like A Pirate Day?…all of us need a little light hearted fun in this world gone wild so let’s just go with it for a sentence or two?…them scurvy scalawags that calls themselves City Centre Properties from the norther territories of Carmel is still the owners of record of the McCurdy Hotel and that them barstards still hadn’t paid ther taxes, arrrrgh?…them two lilly livered sidewinders runnin for President are both caught by the other sneaky camp on videos that makes em both look unfit to run a fast food joint, arrrrgh?…in the eye of an economic hurricane stirred up by the Kracken that we are hearin more about sneaky videos and sneakier Princess Kate’s topless photos than we are about fixin things, aaargh?…it is time for politicians from the Civic Center to the White House to walk the plank if they don’t start doing things right and talkin about policy mateys?

IS IT TRUE that according to Civic Center Moles the auction company signs still hanging on the side of Roberts Stadium and on the marquee along the Lloyd Expressway served their purpose last month?…that even the Planning and Zoning Commission has figured this out and is ready to serve notice to the Wilson Auction Company to removed the signs or face whatever consequences of not complying are?…that letting this slide for so long and the deer in the headlights look when confronted with it are just the latest in the discovery process of laziness and/or just a plain old let it slide attitude in the Civic Center?

IS IT TRUE we at the CCO are pleased to hear that the Chicago Teacher’s Union has voted to accept the deal they have extorted from the City of Chicago and will be returning to the classrooms they are paid very well to teach in?…this does not make them less selfish and it does not get the children of Chicago back the time spent out of the classroom and in some cases walking the streets of Chicago?…the head of the CTU doesn’t look like she has been missing many meals standing at the lectern and ranting like Jabba the Hut on crack?…the CTU served as bad examples to the kids they are paid to serve?…that Chicago just came off of a summer of killing like no other in the city’s history?…this came on the heels of what is claimed to be the nation’s strictest gun control laws?…Chicago has taken the first step in proving that gun control increases crime as 2nd Amendment supporters have asserted for years?

IS IT TRUE that it would be refreshing if the candidates for President and their campaigns would start to talk about what they propose to jump start an economy that is the worst it has been in 70 years?…in a world where countries are going under over excessive debt and a country where unemployment has stagnated at an unacceptable level while wages fall, housing collapses, taxes are uncertain, and the Arab world is howling for America’s demise, we are entertained with sneaky videos about the candidates and a naked princess?…we learned nothing new from all of this diversion?…we already knew that 47% of the tax returns filed had no income tax liability?…we already knew that President Obama is a proponent of redistribution of income?…we already suspected (we knew) that Princess Kate is one fine lady to look at?…it is time for the candidates for President and their campaigns to start talking substance and stop the idiotic elementary school gotcha stuff?…if the election were today and “none of the above” were a serious option that would be the best choice?…we hope that changes and that these two diversionists get on about the business of earning votes as opposed to buying them?

IS IT TRUE that the amount of unsolicited information coming our way after yesterday’s IS IT TRUE Part 2 regarding the reconciliation of the City of Evansville’s finances stacked up quickly and is under review?…there is obviously a pent up desire to rat some folks out in the Civic Center and our inboxes prove it?…we are pleased to be getting this information but will be very careful about publishing things that may be embellished a bit and could do some serious damage?

    Overheard on the 3rd floor of the Civic Center:

    “Looting and pillaging always be a good time Matey!”

    It’s heartening to hear that the Chicago teachers strike may be over and students can return to class … not in small part because public schools are where so many poor children from South Chicago get the only decent food in their day.

    I read many articles in local papers, the Washington Post, New York Times, online news blogs, and viewed a lot of TV coverage about the Chicago teachers strike. But I never heard or read a single damned word about how it affected the kids with regard to their daily diets, personal safety, or anything other than money, money, money, and union vs. non-union charter school issues, blah, blah, blah.

      Maybe the parents will sue the teachers for depriving their children of a before school snack, lunch, and an after school snack.

        Maybe folks will start paying attention to child hunger in the U.S., and do something about it other than turn their heads the other way, or crack snide jokes.

          I thought the latest concern was child obesity. Am I out of the loop here?

            My concern was focused on a couple of issues, mainly that I think there are many young children who are safer and better nourished when they are in school rather than at greater risk in certain urban neighborhoods. And I think the Chicago teachers strike put those kids in peril in those regards, and I’m happy to hear the strike may be settled.

        Pretty sure the news stated the schools still served a breakfast and a lunch each day while the strike was on. While the spin was for the common good of the kids, the real reason was if they kept the schools open until after a lunch was served, the teachers and admin will not need to make up those missed days and the federal funding also.

      You should live long enough! He can not do that without throwing a bunch of John’s enablers with him, and that ain’t gonna happen my friend. Not while they have the lock on this town that they currently enjoy.

    Beijing protestors attack American Ambassador’s car.

    Do we even have a functioning State Department anymore. Where is Hillary Clinton in all this mess. Why is United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice fielding all the questions on Libya? Where the hell is the Secretary of State?

      No, No, we can not have HRDH’s (Her Royal Democrat Highness) high profile all over the media running around trying to put out the fires created by he democrat boss.

      That just wouldn’t do now, would it? So she has gone underground until things cool down. Hiding out doesn’t seem very presidential for a woman with aspirations of some day filling that seat behind the big desk in the oval office.
