People really amaze me, they challenge my faith because of my choice in candidates, and they challenge my loyalty to my country because I think that people should have to work for a living. They call me a racist for me standing up for my rights; do I deny you health care and or housing? NO I do not..The arrogance of lazy people to actually think that I need to break my back to pay for all of these social programs, people in this country are angry. Tea Parties, The Birthers, and bloggers, this is a deep and visceral anger that is beyond reason. You can show the Pro’s to social programs all you want but facts are facts “People are tired of being the working /walking pay check for these “programs”.
When you go to the polls today think of all the taxes that have been levied on your pockets in the last 4 years, stop and think if you re-elect the same people back into office will the situation change under their management of the city and county of Joliet and Will County.
I cast my vote today and I voted to oust the current regime and voted for change, I want jobs for the area, “not” more taxes by a pick-pocket elected board(s) I was and am tired of paying for the screws-up, only to be asked to fix the problem with more of my tax dollars when they have wasted so much of our tax dollars in the past.
So vote today for tomorrow your pocket my be picked clean.

From the herald Spew News by BOB OKON email@example.com The date of the candidates’ forum, the location of the forum and the format for the forum were fodder for a lengthy and emotion-filled discussion during the council’s workshop session Monday.
Sam Chellino, president of Crest Hill Community Television, expressed indignation at being called “crooked” at a previous council meeting.
Alderman Charles Convery accused the TV group of trying “to play God” by exerting too much control over the forum.
And Alderwoman Tina Oberlin voiced concern that someone might use their five minutes on TV to “go on a vile rant.”
“If someone wants to take their five minutes and blast their opponent, that’s their decision,” offered Alderman Ray Soliman, a candidate for mayor. He added that he would not do that.
As the debate dragged on for nearly an hour, Mayor Nick Churnovic asked, “Who wants the candidates’ forum at this point?”
But then he concluded, “If anybody wants to show up, they can show up. If anyone doesn’t want to show up, they don’t have to show up.”
“I’m not doing it — not with their format,” Alderwoman Brenda Lelis said.
Alderman John Vershay eased the tension at one point with a tongue-in-cheek defense of the five-minute format.
“You have to sell yourself to the people. What’s the big commotion? It’s a salesman’s job. Who’s got the biggest line of B.S.? And, here I am,” Vershay said, rising to his feet and raising his voice. “I’ve got it.”

Considering the $5 million contract the city approved this week, I think this has to be something the mayor should address.
Mr. Mayor, how is this not pay-to-play when there was no bidding on the contract?
