Elwood: Illinois Nazis. Jake: I hate Illinois Nazis.
The vast majority of 9/11 observances in this country cannot be seen as politically neutral events. Implicit in their nature are the notions that lives lost at the World Trade Center are more valuable than lives lost in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and elsewhere; that the motives of the 9/11 attackers had nothing to do with genuine grievances in the Islamic world regarding American imperialism; and that the U.S. has been justified in the subsequent killing of hundreds of thousands in so-called retaliation.
Dr David Green, University of Illinois Academic Professional (HT: Big Peace.com)
The quote shown above and the despicable moral philosophies that it entails are the province of one of our two major political parties. What University of Illinois Academic Professional puts forth is the honest opinion of every member of this party that has ever “courageously chosen” not to wear their American Flag Pin when they served in the US Senate. These people don’t want such “cheap gestures” of American Patriotism.
What David Green just stated in that heinous passage above is a true reflection of who Democratic Party Leaders are as human beings. I thank him for revealing the inner basilisk hidden under the cult of personality. Democratic Candidate, Alexi Giannoulias, runs for the US Senate to keep that proud tradition of Disrespect America First alive.
I was curious as to what type of person would proudly run for the Senate Seat once contaminated by Barack Obama. I searched the Internet Tubes. His official website offers us the following biography.
There’s been an error and the page you are looking for is either temporarily unavailable or no longer exists. If you arrived from a search engine that page may have been on an earlier version of the site.
Perhaps that leaves you somewhat less than pumped. Perhaps it doesn’t make you want to crawl over broken glass to run out and vote for the guy. Fear not, Loyal Community Organizer! According to the Chicago Reader, Alexi Giannoulias is what Joe Biden would describe as a “Big Deal!”
Giannoulias was a 29-year-old officer at the bank, and known in political circles—if at all—as the guy who’d helped Barack Obama raise lots of money in the Greek community. (Back in 2006) Then Obama paid Giannoulias back, endorsing him in TV spots that propelled him to a come-from-behind win in the 2006 Democratic primary for treasurer.
President Barack Obama KNOWS Alexi Giannoulis. That should pretty much close the sale right there. The Peerage has spoken. The Yacht Aristocracy casts its endorsement. Don’t be a Stinkin’ Jabroni. Vote for Money G!
But there’s always some wise guy with a list of issues.
But experts and community leaders say Broadway developed a reputation for giving out loans to just about anyone who walked in the door. Among the recipients of loans while Alexi worked full-time at the bank were: Michael Giorango, a Florida developer who’s been convicted of running bookmaking and prostitution rings; Boris and Lev Stratievsky, a father-son team later convicted of laundering money for Ukrainian drug dealers; and Tony Rezko, the developer-businessman-political fixer who was eventually convicted of fraud and money laundering for his role in pay-to-play schemes during the administration of Governor Blagojevich. Giannoulias and current bank officials have said all of them were creditworthy when the loans were issued. “

Alexi wasn’t done playing the magic-man. One his most “innovative’ and “exciting” deals involved Mrs. Loren Billings and The Chicago Museum of Holography. Mrs. Billings was an older woman whose husband had passed on. She has her good days, and sadly, she has some bad ones. Her worst day ever was when she did business with Alexi Giannoulis.
Mrs. Billings took out a $1M loan with her property as collateral in 2002. Her son is suing Giannoulis for not doing due diligence and loaning money to an older woman of dubious mental state. Details of his dealings follow below.
Kasprzak alleges that the bank accepted financial documents from his mother that she didn’t prepare herself and that wildly overstated her assets—listing, among other things, a $120,000 salary in 2001, $170,000 in dividend income, and $430,000 in that arbitrage account. (He noted in one court document that the state income tax Loren filed in 2001 claimed she was paid no salary at all.) Billings put the building up as collateral. She was 83 years old and it was the first loan she had ever taken out in her life.
In November 2006, Alexi Giannoulias, endorsed by Obama, was elected treasurer of Illinois. During his campaign the press questioned him about some of the loans he’d approved; the Billings loan was one of them. In a letter to the Sun-Times Giannoulias said Kasprzak’s suit was “fraught with factual errors and baseless claims,” denied that Billings had shown any signs of mental impairment in 2002, and wondered, “Why is Kaspazak [sic] suddenly voicing concerns about his mother’s mental capacity four years after the loan was granted and when I’m currently seeking a statewide office?”
So the Dem. Candidate for the US Senate from Illinois is a corrupt financier who possibly entraps senile octogenarians into loans so that he can confiscate their property. What could that possibly have to do with The University of Illinois Academic Professional’s hatred for his nation’s military? And, why is either of these schmuck-wads as bad as Illinois Nazi’s?
People who don’t get symbolism are materialists. They are empirical materialists who don’t get hung up on spiritual mumbo-jumbo. The stuff is above their pay grade, and they’d rather lock in on what they can taste, touch and smell. They don’t get symbolic fly-overs at University of Illinois football games, and are perfectly happy to cater to the delusions of Academic Professional, David Green – for a small donation, of course.
What they get, is how they are getting paid. They KNOW people who pay them, and will ruthlessly crush anyone who gets in the path of their power-harvesting combine. They are people who will happily throw away the lives of others like snotted-up tissue paper. That’s who the GOP is up against in the Illinois Senate Race. They are an entrenched aristocracy of pull.
The fight will be hard, and Mark Kirk, the alternative, wouldn’t make an outstanding Conservative Senator. However; if you hate Illinois Nazis like Jake and Ellwood, Kirk is your electable alternative. As the Blues Brothers once said it:
Elwood: It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses. Jake: Hit it.
