    Remember your Mamas rule~"Keep quiet if you havent anything good to say!" NOW:CONGRATS TO RAHM E! The people of Chicago will be well represented. And,thank you Rahm,for speaking up,about what is going on in Wisconsin.This Gov.Walker IS A TYRANNT OF THE WORST SORT! He is bringing our own Eygpt right to our Door,and Why cant they recall Gov. Walker for 9 more months?? What says that?And if it does,then it needs changed NOW! This Walker,and his other "Tea Party"Govenors ALL need Recalled~NOW. Start with Wisc.and then Ohio and Indiana,before these "Hitler type"radicals get any more hold on this country.THEN GET THOSE FOOL REPUB/TEAPARTIERS OUT OF WASHINGTON D.C. ASAP!

    @America 1st:That seems a strange name for someone who obviously does not aspire to America actually BEING 1st,instead of about there out at 37th! Then some others@Nobama:if any body thinks your Rethug~Teaprs are going to do anything for Americas`midlle class and poor,I got a"bridge to nowhere"in AK. I will sell you at a reduced price.I am sure Palin would let you live under it,and bring you a few bread crumbs once in awhile! For THAT is what all Rich GOP has planned for all of you "UNrich"~yep~even the Teabaggers who follow along like kittens,until they figure it out,that the ones they are standing up for,will soon try to take their Social Security and Health Care away too.WHERE did we GET people Dumb enough to follow these idiots? Of course,Jim Jones had no trouble talking hundreds into ,not only drinking the Koolaid themselves,but giving it to their own children! Kinda like what GOP is doin to the good folks of this country RIGHT NOW.Absolutely amazing. Dont have to sgree with me but you all better wake up quick and start thinking about your life and your families before Rethug/Teatards destroy it completely! if you dont care for yrself,care for your childs sake.

    It's very apparent that nobody lives in Chicago, let alone Illinois, except for Sherri.
    If the people of Chicago wanted. Black Mayor, they would have elected Mosley-Braun. If they wanted a Latino Mayor, they would have elected Chico. They wanted Rahm Emmanuel. And they elected him, so keep your retarded comments to yourself, and go back under your bridge where you belong.

    Just wondering; where is all this money suppose to come from in WIS to pay the unions off? Union thugs like Ralm & Barak Hussien are taking us over the cliff! If the public at large are to thick headed to understand basic economics & our leaders are 'crooks' in bed with very corupt unions; we are doomed!

      We were already over the cliff we are trying to repel back up. Its hard though with the working people fighting amongst themselves, especially the ones that are in denial with what happened in the previous 8 years. What is your game plan?
