Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

CHICAGO— A 22-year-old man was charged on Monday with the execution-style killing of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee, a Chicago boy who in November was lured into an alley and shot in a grisly gang-retaliation murder, police say.

Dwight Boone-Doty, who was already in the Cook County Jail on unrelated gun charges, has also been charged with another murder. Police say he was the trigger man in the Tyshawn Lee murder.

it is never government...it's corporations.....who have zero taxing ability in which to generate current and future operating and potential expansion plans. Politicians curry favor and destroy you with your permission...not you per sè.

I called whirlpool headquarters to ask how many are employed at the .headquarters...there was no answer. Feel free to pursue this Avenue if you desire. The city was failed by the decisions of its leadrrship.

You and OWO should take a gander at the independent audits as well as the findings by the emergency manager the pdf files are online and easily retrieved with minimum effort.

Mod....read about the abatement deal. Whirlpool cuts the city a check for $300,000.00 yearly until they reach $3.8 million which offsets the abatement minus $71,000.00. The facility that they closed made parts for obsolete product.

OWO....great question. It appears that they had JP Morgan managing their pensions. I feel certain that union leaders were aware of the status of the pension programs and the administration thereof. Under the emergency manager, they joined the states pension program. The report of the audit as well as a thorough reading of the emergency managers report reveals a city lead by fools.

No Abby , what was the change that caused these people who were in charge of these pensions to blatently risk money that had no business being in the market in the first place ?

An addendum to my post. In 2010 Whirlpool closed a facility in Benton which displaced 216 workers. Now that would affect the city....but it should not have caused the financial calamity they found themselves in.

Moderation....from what I have read...no. Whirlpool actually received a net tax abatement of $71,000.00 in exchange for building a $68 million dollar headquarters in Benton. This is from WNDU television Website. Dated October 18, 2010.
