WEEKEND QUOTABLES

Passerby Gretchen Moore shot video of raid on Chicago homeless
“And so I parked my car and I went running over and I said, ‘Who are you and why are you doing this? I can’t believe any of the aldermen would do this.'" -- WGN
Oprah at the Golden Globes 
 They're the women whose names we'll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they're in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. They're part of the world of tech and politics and business. They're our athletes in the Olympics and they're our soldiers in the military. And there's someone else, Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know, too. -- Transcript

The fact that you have the richest man on the planet getting a tax incentive, in theory to move jobs to Illinois, while black women in particular have to beg on the county floor for a job, that's an unjust system. -- Hitting Left

 And it confirms what we have all always known to be true: that the president severely lacks the cognitive ability to do this job, and that he is surrounded at all times by a cadre of enablers, dunces, and outright thieves. -- GQ

  1. I saw a program last week (I believe it was a Democracy Now! segment &, note to the now-defunct WYCC D.N. watchers: if you get Gary {Lakeshore} PBS, D.N. is on that channel at midnight M-F) about a "busing" program for the homeless, whereby they can obtain a free {one way}bus ticket to another city. According to the report, this program hasn't worked out too well, as one might imagine). You can see D.N. online, so look it up if you're interested.
    Yet another way to rid a city of homeless people.
    Like sweeping dust under the rug.
