Can't wait till they claim they don't have the money to close it.

Nice job as usual by the politicians running Chicago. Of course, even if they did want to radically shake things up, the Feds wont let them.

Centralized power. What a bitch.

This is on Rahm Emanuel's watch and it's a MASSIVE story. Here are a couple of supporting links

Welcome to the Bi-Partisan, Security-Surveillance-State on top of the Prison-Industrial-Complex and I

do not object to ''Centralized power'' - so long as it is transparent and democratically accountable, btw.

Right, a Democrat, oh my, what a surprise.

And, here's a better link than turbo's only because the Tribune wants me to sign up to read the article, but I found it here:

We Americans really need to seek out alternative and foreign news sources to get our news, because MSM is just a major fail.

"Fascism is Coming Alive Again'' http://www.commondreams.org/views/2015/02/28/fascism-coming-alive-again and this shit is bi-partisan and yet more ample evidence of the R+D Shamocracy and the clear existence of a 'Deep Government' behind and between the scenes that we can see on our TVs.

Hilary Clinton keeping her emails as Secretary of State on a private server...

In the U.S. they are sneakily hiding the fascism from us and because we're all too busy trying to survive on poverty wages, we aren't paying any attention. The perfect storm....

Interestingly, my link at the Beacon Review no longer works either. The article was taken down.

The Homan Square, Chicago story is being suppressed in the US and there is now no doubt about that

in my mind. Hilary did what she did probably because she knew about the 'Trawl All + Keep All'' m.o. of

the US Security-State + see http://rt.com/usa/238793-chicago-homan-square-protest/ and also consider

this - http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/mar/07/homan-square-protesters-chicago-police-facility

fanatisism may be in its death bed

listen for the rattle

The Neoliberal / Neocon 'fanaticism' of the 1% OF The Global 1% - is what we need to be most aware of imo, as that's what is the main driver of so much of the shit that we are in. However, I tend to agree with your underlying point even though we must still be be wary because it's always darkest before the dawn.

get up early, "it is not darkest before the dawn"

I'll accept that possibility - WHEN - there is equality for all - WHEN - everyone no matter how rich is subject to the same laws as are the very poor - WHEN - corp(se)oRATions are held to the laws of the land and are made to be responsible to keeping their operations CLEAN = NON POLLUTING.
