Toni Preckwinkle is Bone Stupid . . .but at Least as Smart as Karen Lewis and Rahm Went to New Trier.

"We've got in this country such distorted values. In the last 30 or 40 years we've invested all this money in our prison system, and our schools are starving for money." Toni Preckwinkle on America

Inmates get 24/hour care for roughly $ 39.000 per inmate - that's for 365 days per annum.

CPS children attend school for roughly 5 hours and 52 mintes (on the heavy side) at a cost of $ 26.500 - that's for 161 days per annum.

"We ought to invest a lot more in our public schools. You know, feed the kids breakfast, lunch, and dinner; have after-school activities; keep the schools open until nine o'clock in the evenings and on weekends; invest in things like the Boys and Girls Club and the Park District—I mean, everything, basically, to dramatically ramp up the investments in our children." -Toni Preckwinkle on Fighting Crime in Chicago

Toni Preckwinkle is bone stupid.

Then there is Karen Lewis ( read Jesse Sharkey) 

”The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just - off with their heads. They were seriously talking about that.” -<iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Rf-N7Fe_Wc4?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

"The issue is we cannot get a perfect contract. There is no such thing as a contract that will make all of us happy, and we're realistic about that. The other issue, do we stay on strike forever until every little thing we want is capable of being gotten. We don't think that."
"This idea of corporate efficiency that's been pushed toward schools, that's a problem for us. It's not good for kids. I think people don't understand that. If kids are in chaos, their lives are in chaos. Where is the stability?"
"I'm so thrilled that people are going back, all of our members are glad to be back with their kids. It's a hard decision to make to go out, and for some people it's hard to make the decision to go back in." September 19, 2012

Karen Lewis is considered a ripe plum to Mayor of Chicago.

As for Rahm? Meh.  With regard to  Education and Chicago Crime, Rahm versus Toni and Karen is a debate about the difference between horse poop and manure.

"I wake up some mornings hating me too." -Rahm Emanuel
