Offer To Any "Authentic" Cub Fan That Can't Be Refused

I'm willing to bet the farm that the Cubs won't win the World Series this year. I'm willing to bet half the farm that the Cubs won't make it to the World Series this year. I'm willing to bet 1/8 the farm that the Cubs won't win their division this year. If they do, I'm will to bet 1/8 of the farm they won't win their first game.

8 runs scored against Cub's star Lester today. 18 runs scored against a bevy of
Cub pitchers today. In 2 games, the Cardinals outscored the Cubs 24 to 14 at Wrigley Field. In 2 at bats, Cub's star Baez stranded 5 runners as he struck out on really bad pitches.

Lester and Maddon passed up Lesters' chance to play in the All-Star game. What do you suppose Lester did in those four off days to pitch so badly today? Just guessing but I suggest he and his buddies consumed several cases of beer and dozens of brats. Whatever. He sure put on an ugly performance before all Cub faithful today.

When players today make those millions, especially those with talent, they can do anything they wish. 85% of professional athletes use pot and many use coke. Which often leads to early retirement. You can bet Ben Zobrist used no drugs near 100% of the time. Maybe in the off-season and maybe after year 2016 season was offer.

Face it. The entire Cub pitching staff except their closer, is suspect. Cub hitters load up on weak pitchers (there are an awful lot pitchers who wouldn't be in the Major League if their weren't so many teams). I've said before that this team can't hit GOOD pitching with any regularity.

OK, back to my offer. Any takers??

Countries, Especially the U.S.A., Have Been 'Meddling' In Foreign Elections For 150 Years

It's all there in history books that a growing majority of students, reporters, journalists, analysts, regular adults and others, no longer read.

Drug Money Laundering In Peoria; the Largest Drug Selling Center in Illinois South of Chicago

I could name 3 but of course I won't. Don't want to die yet.

Democrats 'Forever' Agendas

Open all our Borders to the world
Make citizens of all illegals including felons if no longer in prison. (They would all vote Democrat)
Impeach Trump
Make nothing but MINOR changes to ObamaCare
Stack the Supreme Court with left-leaning liberals
Repeal the tax cuts
Continue to make the U.S.A. the Piggy-Bank to the worlds needy and UN-NEEDY
Cozy up to Radical Socialist Elites such as George Soros
Continue to cozy up to the radical liberal main-stream medias
Blame the NRA for the few (comparatively to the hundreds killing each other in Chicago gang wars (90% Blacks) and teen-agers texting while driving (6 killed on an average day)
Erase as much history from our History books on all levels and teach PROGRESSIVE history also on all levels. 30% of all High School 'graduates' know nothing about WWI, the difference between north and South Korea and who was involved in this Korean War and how it ended.
A majority know nothing about the hardships suffered to gain Independence from England.
Make laws that make it even harder to fire a public worker or public official.
Work hard to NEVER repeal te disastrous Davis-Bacon Law that costs taxpayer billions of dollars
Keep all the perks that both they and the Establishment Republicans enjoy for life
Keep recommending to CNN, the most radical liberal group of outlets most widely viewed., all the liberal Democrats who work for CNN and appear as 'analysts' or talking heads of which we have too many now on all levels of government and sports
Continue to cater to all RADICAL BLACK groups

And this is just the Demos main agendas.


If you read as much non-fiction as I do, you WILL know I am at least 90% correct.

My Readers From the United Kingdom and Russia Are Waiting For My Comments on Trump's Visits

I have made my decisions on Trump 3 years ago. Viewers who aren't Democrat sore losers or old Establishment Republicans and illegal lovers, etc, very well know how the choice was he or nation killer Hillary and they should know my commitment to our President is strong.

DESPITE ALL HIS FAULTS. I suppose Hillary was an angel. If it ever is proved that she had one or more person killed in her career, (start with Vince Foster) these folks opinion would not change. Remember the felon who,once out of prison, ran for Mayor of DC and won.

Over Emphasis On Sports May kill America

As an ex-coach and referee, I am aghast of the changes for the worst that have occurred since I left both in 1959. The sports crazed fans asked for it and eventually they will pay for what craziness is occurring today.

A good example is the home run hitting contest where the winners Dad came out to pitch to him. Fair to the runnerup? BS.

And all the hours of hype watched hundreds of millions of people who would have helped this country by reading a non-fiction book.

This country is in a phase of craziness that I never believed i would live to see.

So sad..

Note: I did help coach tennis at Woodruff (best season in history occcured where I recieved two trophies for my assistance),, Notre Dame and Manual.

Pile On Trump - Christie, Denied a Cabinet Post, Is Goiing To Reveal Himself As Being Another "Sore Loser"

Stenographer says Trump doesn't like people publish his every word. my Dear God, let's have the words printed by one of the worst cursing President in recent history; Democrat Lyndon Johnson..Trump is under attack from his own party, his countrypeople who read only headlines, sore losers, Democrats, illegal lovers, radical environmental nuts, most Blacks and intelligent people with no common sense, etc.

I supported Trump over a real nation killer names Hillary and I support him WITH ALL HIS FLAWS today.

Property Taxes in Peoria, Il. How I Led the Fight Against These Unfair Taxes

When I, a County Board member, was waging the battle against rising property taxes, I approached Pat McCarthy, then head of the Realtor Board, and asked him to join in the fight. He declined. I learned recently that some time back, Governor Rauner visited Mr. McCarthy at McCarthy's home, as McCarthy has NOW complained about how high property taxes were driving people out of Peoria.

Pat McCarthy lives next door to me yet did not invite me to attend this meeting. McCarthy apparently is claiming to lead the fight against higher property taxes.

My wife and I have agreed that Pat McCarthy; will not sell our home when it goes on the market.

Peoria County Board of Review ( Part Of My Successful Fight to Lower Property Taxes in Peoria, Il..)May 15,2009)

Peoria County Board of Review

To All County Board Members:

As large property owners in Peoria County, we join with other local property
owners in objecting to the very substantial increases the current review
board has placed on area properties. Having been in the Peoria real estate
market for over 40 years, we see no sound justification for the huge
percentage of increases. As evidence of the size of increased valuations,
we have enclosed a schedule that reflects the percentage of increases placed
on several of our properties.

Who to hire and fire is your job, but far too many good citizens and
business owners who invest in this community are at odds with the valuation
placed upon their properties, and "some action" on your part is required to
rectify the current situation we are experiencing. Therefore, we ask that
you take this matter very seriously before we see further deterioration in
the local economy due to unjustified taxation of real estate.

Regards,

David S. Joseph

This is typical of the dozens of phone calls, letters, emails, etc., not to mention the dozens of people who have appeared before the full board or the Tax/Economic Development Committee over the past year or more.

Last night the full board voted almost unanimously to retain Nancy Horton and Gary Shadid for another 3 years on the tax Board of Review. Committee Chairman Mayer lent his support for their retention, $40,000 a year, part time, as did County Board Chairman O'Neill and a statement from Bill Atkins of the States Attorney's Office, "if it is the arbitrary assignment of values, then we have had an arbitrary Board of Review for about 30 years as these attacks are nothing new".

In my studied opinion, this is hardly a correct statement as complaints show a compelling amount of discrepancies in purchase, sales and believed proven (by the protesters) actual values over the past two years.

The County Administrator was quoted in the JS on May 14, in an article mis- labeled "Board of Review releases proposed changes", corrected the next day in the JS, as the proposed changes came from our administrator working with the B of R., stating in the 5 page document sent to all county board member, that "only township assessors can apply values to individual properties, that each case is decided on its merit regarding equity and fair market value and that a township assessor may be able to correct an assessed value".

One county board member had their personal residence property tax halved by asking for a visit from their township assessor. The same township assessor's assistant told me that the township assessor couldn't help me and that I had to take up what I thought was an unfair assessment, directly to the B. of R.

Hmmmmmm.

The administrators letter also said that "questions may be directed to "Democrat" Dave Ryan, the Supervisor of Assessments for the county".

Whatever the problems are, the county must have a system that is fair to all property tax payers knowing that not all people will be satisfied with their assessment.

Note I said a fairer, more easily understood process and perhaps a change in the the way the state regulates the tax assessment of all properties.

I do not believe the nagging questions hovering over property values and property taxes, will go away without some considerable changes wherever the changes need to be made.

Employee Free Choice Act

For my opinion of Allen Mayers comments as printed in the JS about the county board withdrawing support of the EDC if the Chamber and the EDC didn't back off their public support of the EFCA, by reporter Karen McDonald on 5/8/09, read my comments on the Peoria Chronicle and my blog of 10/30/08.

The Democrat controlled Peoria County Board can do as they wish. However, I believe Board Chairman Tom O'Neill has much more common sense than Mayer who struggles to show that he a Democrat "union" man through and through. His ambition goes far beyond being a county official. As 

How Taxpayers Avoid Paying High Property Taxes in Peoria, Il.

These millionaires buy a home in Florida. They must swear that they spend 1/2 a year plus one day in their Florida home. They can then call Florida their home. They then pay next to nothing in property taxes. They can no longer vote in Illinois.

I learned this going to door to door back when running for election when a husband and wife told me they could not vote for me because their actual residence was Florida. Of course, they can travel back and forth between Florida and Peoria.

Who is checking? Nobody.

If the laws have changeed, please advise me. You have my email address on this site.

Peoria, Il., Taxes Are Helping Kill This Once Growing City

My one residence property tax is $7000+. Value of the property if put up for sale is about $210,000. When I owned a $250,000 home in Sun Lakes, AZ. my tax was $1900.

More on how some millionaires avoid property and the upcoming referendum on raising sales taxes another 1/2%.
