Chicago City Government Closed For Business Monday, Due To Budget Constraints (Flat Broke Anyone?)

This is our wonderful city run exclusively by democrats for decade after decade is shutting down Monday like many other liberal run into the ground states and cities will be doing shortly if
Americans left of center don't awaken to the Obama folly that's taking this country to the crapper quicker than an overdose of Milk Of Magnesia my friends out there ..

Not to mention the city proper and 'not it's surrounding suburbs" is right smack dab in the middle of a record setting murder year which I've written about long loud and often,.....

In addition, one most interesting tidbit in that column happens to be that the home district of one Barack Hussein Obama actually leads the pack in murders, as ugly as that is for those of us out here interested in nothing but facts.

So how's that "Hope and Change" crap working here in Chicago you ask? This is how........so to wrap it up class, Obamanomics blows and Obama has essentially turned out to what we mostly figured long before now....He and everything he stands for is Un American trouble.
cbs2chicago.com:If you planned to check out a library book, visit a city clinic or have your garbage picked up on Monday, you're out of luck.

The City of Chicago will basically be closed for business on Aug. 17, a reduced-service day in which most city employees are off without pay, according to a release from the Office of Budget and Management. City Hall, public libraries, health clinics and most city offices will be closed.

Emergency service providers including police, firefighters and paramedics will be working at full strength, but most services not directly related to public safety, including street sweeping, will not be provided, the release said.

That also includes garbage pickup. Residents who receive regular collection on Mondays should expect trash to be picked up the following day, the release said. Some other customers may experience a one-day delay as collectors catch up.

As part of the 2009 budget, three reduced-service days were planned for 2009, days which are unpaid for all affected employees -- the Friday after Thanksgiving; Christmas Eve; and New Year's Eve. The City Council recently approved moving the reduced-service day planned for New Year's Eve to Monday.

The 2009 budget anticipates saving $8.3 million due to the reduced-service days.

In addition to reduced service days, all non-union employees were asked to take a series of furlough days and unpaid holidays, and most non-sworn union employees agreed to similar unpaid time off.

"Every dollar we save from these measures helps to save jobs, and in the long-term, maintain services for Chicagoans," Mayor Daley said in the release. "This plan relies on most of our civilian employees to be part of the solution to our very serious budget challenges. I want to thank them again for their sacrifice."


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
