Ald. Cappleman & his right-wing NIMBYists vote to become Uptown’s worst hypocrites ever!

Cappleman & elite mostly upper-class white property owners can buy booze where they choose to, but not you!

Estimated to be less than 200 members of 4 block clubs, composed of almost all upper-class white property owners, recently voted themselves to be the entire 46th Ward community of 50,000+ people and deny average people in Uptown the right to buy alcohol at the proposed Circle K and Subway franchise at the former JJ Peppers located at Sheridan Rd/Lawrence Ave.

Cappleman has indicated he will stand with the “community” decision and oppose the license. With aldermanic privilege, the greatest source of corruption in Chicago, the deal is likely done.

I don’t drink but this is not about alcohol.

One of the worst parts of this is that less than 1/2 of 1% of the 46th Ward’s residents are taking it upon themselves to legislate morality as they see fit and declare their super minority opinion to be the whole community.

What’s next, voter suppression, some more gerrymandering?

Cappleman’s “community” is the same as Trump’s inauguration crowd size

It’s a lie from a dishonest Alderman that lies every minute like Trump does.

Question: Since when do Democrats legislate morality?

Answer: Conservatives and Republicans do, and usually with a large dose of hypocrisy just like this.

How shameful, mostly drinkers and in some cases actual alcoholics being total hypocrites, thinking their income and special position lets them decide that people of color and people with less money than them need to be restricted from buying alcohol with the same freedom they have.

Shame on you Ald. Cappleman and block club members!

Thanks!

No greater corrupt selfish greed than the real estate industry fueled by naive Democrats and ‘liberals’

Subsidized Luxury Housing Development Eight Eleven Uptown fair use image. Subsidized to the detriment of public schools, against the will of the majority of the Uptown community, exactly opposite the intended use of TIF Funds legislation by corrupt Ald. Cappleman.

I wondered…

Today, I was reading a friend’s post on Facebook ‘The Illinois Association of Realtors mobilized 300 realtors to lobby against lifting the ban on rent control‘ and I wondered…

I wondered how many 46th Ward voters buy fair trade coffee.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters buy organic food.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters buy sustainable energy.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters buy ethically sourced products of all types.

I wondered how many 46th Ward voters boycott sweatshop businesses like Ivanka Trump.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters boycott Chick-fil-A for their hate.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters boycott Hobby Lobby for their healthcare intrusions.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters boycott FOX News or NRA advertisers.

I wondered how many 46th Ward voters pride themselves for supporting LGBTQ rights.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters support healthcare and education.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters support racial and gender equality.
I wondered how many 46th Ward voters support higher minimum wages and reproductive rights.

I wondered how many 46th Ward voters chafe daily at Donald Trump and his GOP clowns.

I think you get the point of my wondering, which could be pages long…

The biggest wonder of all

I wondered how many 46th Ward voters think they are the peak of informed progressives but are not.

With all their very good and much appreciated concern for the environment, health, fair business, equality, honesty in journalism and government, and so forth, many 46th Ward voters completely fall down locally in a pile of corrupt dog poo put out daily by the real estate industry and their bought and paid for corrupt legislators like Alderman Cappleman.

No problem if tens of thousands of people that lived in the 46th Ward for generations perhaps, have to leave the neighborhood, or even the city or state.
No Problem if tens of thousands of people suffer daily under ridiculous and out of touch with inflation rents and mortgages. Costs and taxes that escalate far more than wages.
No problem if tax money intended for schools is given to wealthy real estate developers instead.
No problem if luxury housing is prioritized way over healthcare and education.
No problem if thousands of people become homeless or bankrupt or suffer needless bad health or die early.

This and more, it’s all OK. You buy real estate and regardless of how much destruction to real living human beings there is, it is yours to do with as you wish.

Every other product and service has regulations and ethical pressures to be sure it doesn’t dominate to the detriment of the population but not real estate. Because of course, they spend a fortune hiring hundreds of lobbyists and corrupting every legislator they can. In Chicago, one of the most corrupt and most damaging to the community is Alderman Cappleman.

Alderman Cappleman is Democrat in name only, as dirty and conservative as they come. Being LGBTQ doesn’t make anyone liberal or progressive. The lies and the photo op circuit don’t either.

Don’t be like Cappleman.
Don’t vote for him.
Boycott Cappleman in every way.
Be truly progressive nationally AND locally.

Don’t be fooled, look at the actions and results, not the lies of Alderman Cappleman and the rest of the real estate corrupted legislators. Please educate yourself or be an uninformed conservative voter, your call.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks!
