The Cook County Council-
as seen through a "reality filter"
The cartoon above is the original cartoon by Thomas Nast which associated the Donkey with the Democratic party
It is well that the Logo of the Democratic party is the donkey, because these guys are a herd of jack-asses!
Of course they had no problem raising our taxes... its much easier to feed the fattened sow which is the county government than to actually... oh... DO THEIR JOBS... and run it well.
I'm most irate because this hits hardest those who can least take it- the poor, unemployed, seniors, those on fixed income, etc. Those who have more income have the means to avoid Chicago's confiscatory taxes, and are doing so in droves. So who gets left paying it? Fools who don't know any better in some cases, but mostly people who don't have any choice.
So much for their caring about the little guy!
All the little guy can do is vote for someone who gives a rat's- or donkey's- ass about them... and its about time the people of this county did so!
Can you say "Recall" boys and girls? Good... lets get it on!
