"For half the cost, we can provide the same services in terms of transportation, and then plow that money back into better servicing, more beds and more wrap-around services, both for the kids and adults," Rahm Emanuel fobbing off responsibility for a Progressive Giveaway to the Catholic Church.
Yep, Mayor Coon eyes is quite the rascal. Only a few weeks after telling Catholics that they don't have Chicago Values, in order to gin-up Gay Marriage Rainbow Warriors via Proco Joe Moreno's bonfire of vanity at Chick Fil A, he's dragging his once very WTTW program of caring, really, really caring for the homeless and placing responsibility in the shopping cart of Msgr. Mike Boland and Chicago Catholic Charities.
Government fumbles the ball and the Catholic Church runs it to opposite end of the field and touches the old pigskin down . . .again. Just like the Prep Bowls.
When Rahm Emanuel, the regular guy from the mean streets and alleys . . .drive ways, rather . . . of Wilmette was sworn into office he immediately decided to tax the Catholic Church's schools, hospitals and social services for water.

In Rahm world, quid pro quo means -what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine.
Not only does the feral gobshite in sharkskin suits impose a tax on Chicago's largest social justice infrastructure, but he fobs off responsibility for a Goo-goo policy program that was badly managed and merely government tinsel onto the Catholic Church.
One wonders why he did not reach out to the Gang-banger Pensioners of CeaseFire to identify homeless veterans of the GDs, VICE LORDS, LATIN KINGS and the venerable STONES.
A Pillar of Chicago Values, the Nation of Islam, might have led this faith-based initiative.
Nope. The Catholic Church, Francis Cardinal George, Msgr. Mike Boland, Catholic Charities and Catholics like John Arvetis (Leo '69), who delivers food to the Catholic Charities pantry on 79th Street every day will do what government can't do -care.
What's next, Mayor Coon Eyes? Catholic Rat-Catchers?
This would make sense - turn education over to Sister Mary Paul McCaughey and Catholic Schools. How about this Mayor?
"For half the cost, we can provide the same services in terms of education, and then plow that money back into better servicing, more beds and more wrap-around services, both for the kids and adults," . . . and you can recycle the speech.
High Praise to Tribune reporter John Byrne for getting this news past the mopes of the editorial board.
