For those of you who are wondering where I’ve been and why I haven’t posted any new chapters of my two latest blog-books, ‘24 – The Hunt For Red November’ and ‘Thou Shalt Eat Dust,’ and this blog, ‘A Tiny Kitten With A Big Mouth,’ I was busy preparing for and have undergone Total Knee Replacement Surgery on my left knee and in another month and half, on my right knee as well.
Therefore, I was at home yesterday recuperating and was able to catch President Barak Obama’s return to Springfield and his subsequent speech.
The top three things I took away from the speech were:
- If we as a nation elect someone to be President of this nation, we have to get behind him, whether we are Republican or Democratic. We, the people, need to let that person know what it is we want done and encourage our Representatives and Senators to honestly put forth our agenda to the President. And if the President disagrees with our agenda, we need our Representatives and Senators to come back and honestly explain why the President disagrees.
- We, the people, need to behave better. We as a country must raise our moral standards.
- The Media. We have four major television stations in Chicago and each of those television stations will have a different opinion of what he said and why he said it.
Personally, when I watch the News, I’m always surprised at how little, exactly thirty minutes, worth of News happens in a city as huge and diverse as Chicago. I rarely feel we’re getting the full picture of what’s going on in Chicago and its suburbs.
I also heard President Obama when he said that the Illinois Legislature was afraid to do their job because of what some blogger might write about them.
However, I say, as a blogger, that I’m writing about them because they’re NOT DOING THEIR JOB.
Take a listen to Carol Marine talking with some Chicago Aldermen who evidently, had not done their homework.
Edward M. Burke the head of Chicago’s Finance Committee is doing a good job? For who?
