Horatio Sans of SNL fame is 9/11 Aware

While on the ground at the recent 3 day Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, the Lone Lantern team was armed with 200 9/11 Truth DVDs. Diligently prepared by Mr. Gibbs each DVD was accompanied by one of Carol Brouillet's Deception Dollars.

One by one the DVDs were distributed, some taken with eager anticipation others rejected with repulsed ignorance. One recipient boasted that he had successfully registered as media at the recent “9/11 Revealing the Truth” conference, avoided the entry fee and made off with several DVDs without paying. I proceeded to inform him that I was a presenter at the conference and that my security team must have just missed him. He was surprised to find out that fact and must have been hungry for the truth in order to steal for it. I then handed him a DVD as he sheepishly lit a cigarette.

The distribution continued to very supportive crowds, "Right on, man!" replied one person; "We're with you!" shouted others. "No thank you, my friend is in the Marines and I support the troops..." stated another while I replied " do I."

As the last DVD was in my hand, night was drawing close, and the Chili Peppers were soon to go on, a portly fellow with sunglasses and a loud shirt walked near me. Accompanied by an assumed staff member the man walked closer. His face was strangely familiar and his name came to me, “Horatio” I thought, but still uncertain I approached him to ask.

“You look familiar what is your name?” I asked
“Horatio” he replied.
“Would you like a free DVD about the truth of 9/11, the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center?” I questioned.
“Oh, you mean Loose Change?’ he replied.
“Yeah, that is on the disk too, along with Evidence to the Contrary and Painful Deceptions, it’s the last one.”
“Sure, I’ll take it.” He said, as I placed the DVD in his hand.
“Horatio, could I get a picture?” I turned on the camera, stretched out my arm, and snapped a picture with the last of my battery.

Then he thanked me, and walked away led by his staff.

Horatio Sans of Saturday Night Live, already knew about “Loose Change”. In fact the way he said it to me was as if everyone on the planet knew about that film, like it was a matter of fact. I’m wondering now, about the people he would show the films to, and who else in the celebrity circuit knows the truth? Who else has seen “Loose Change”? We know we have Charlie Sheen, Ed Asner and the whispers of Bruce Willis from the set of “Scanner Darkly”. Now the circle of truth widens as does the margins in the polls, in our favor. The majority of New Yorkers don’t believe the official story, what about the cast and crew of Saturday Night Live? Will Horatio and others soon come out with the same courage of truth?

YOUR Chance the Restore America.

This is a special message I just received and need to post here for you. This is YOUR chance to restore America. NOW is the time.
– Gary Franchi Jr. LLS

Dear Readers:

“Oh, my, I had no idea!” That’s what the audience is saying as they walk out of Aaron Russo’s new film, America: From Freedom to Fascism. Their voices are hushed. Some faces are pale and wet with tears, sick at what they’ve discovered. Many are red, angry to learn for the first time that they have been robbed -- their country, their rights, and their very future have been stolen from them and their children. But it may all end right there – all Aaron’s work, all his sacrifice, all his vision, all the possibilities to make a real change in America, unless we pitch in and help him. Let me explain.

Everything in the world was stacked against this movie. What major studio would back a movie this controversial? A movie that exposes the entire Federal Reserve scam the income tax fraud, and the IRS? A movie that catches a former IRS commissioner boasting that the IRS isn’t subject to Supreme Court decisions? A movie that publicizes government brutality against protestors? A movie that reveals how America was swindled out of her gold reserve? A movie that pulls back the curtain on the coming police state in the US, with its plans to tag everyone with a national ID card and implant an RFID chip in every man, woman, and child? A movie that lays bare the whole New World Order? Warner Brothers and MGM and Fox wouldn’t touch that project with a thirty foot pole, let alone put up money to make the movie. Those giant corporations – already in bed with big government – would never produce or release that movie. So without asking for anybody’s help, Aaron Russo set out to make this film, because he knew it had to be made. He put up 100% of the money to make the film. He invested two years of his life. He laid his name and his reputation on the line. Not just for the sake of his own freedom, but for yours, too, and your children’s, and for millions of Americans who don’t know sic ‘em from come here about what their government really does, or the tyranny that government has already mapped out for them.

Aaron made this movie so everyone in America would understand, so people would really get it. And when they see the movie, they do. (You can view a trailer for the movie at or a preview of the film here: .)

Let me make something plain. This is not a movie that divides, but a movie that unites. Aaron does not work like Michael Moore, who plays to the Left to increase polarization. Aaron’s movie plays to the whole country. It doesn’t take sides. It’s not Democrat or Republican, it’s not left, not right, but dead on. Now Aaron Russo needs our help. The money and the years have been spent, the movie has been made, the test audiences are raving about it, distribution has been arranged, but Aaron still needs our help. The movie must still be marketed and advertised. It must be promoted and supported by TV, newspaper, and radio advertising to get it out to the largest audience possible, to every nook and cranny in America, every city, every town, every hamlet, every corner of America. How could a single movie be that important? Because it will change forever Americans’ false perception of how things work here. Everybody has to see this movie. This is the tool we’ve been waiting for. It’s non-violent, it’s ruthlessly honest, and it can change America. Everybody who sees this movie gets it. The light goes on. Nobody has ever explained so much in one place before. Without your help, Aaron has only enough steam to open in New York City on July fourth. After that, nothing will happen unless every one of us helps him. If we help Aaron now, here’s what he can do.
Ø premiere in two theaters in New York
Ø then open in a few theatres in Los Angeles
Ø then Chicago
Ø then take it to two hundred theatres nation wide, and then 500, and then . . .

But all that takes money. By now you may be snorting, “Who is this guy Franklin Sanders to ask me for money to help promote a movie? That’s a fair question, and here’s a fair answer. According to an assistant United States Attorney, I am “the most dangerous man in the mid-South.” What makes me so dangerous? I am the man who opened a gold and silver bank so that Americans could realise their right to honest, stable gold and silver money. That was perfectly legal, even in 1984, but the federal government didn’t like it. For my trouble I spent the next sixteen years fending off the feds, the IRS, and state government, trying to keep my wife and me out of jail, and trying to keep them from killing my seven children, my wife, and me. I even ended up going to jail. I know -- you think I’m crazy or lying. You can’t believe “our” government agents would do such terrible things. Most people can’t, and I understand why. It’s too horrible to believe. Besides, the government and the media work together to blacken everyone who stands for the law, the constitution, and the truth. They label them “trouble-makers” and “extremists”, and even, as a last resort, “terrorists.”Usually, it works, but our case was different. The federal government indicted 11 people out of our church (because the church elders refused to roll over for the IRS’s fishing expedition) as well as another 14 people. Some pled guilty, just to put an end to the nightmare. By the grace of God, the 16 of us who held out to the end were all acquitted. (You can read the entire story at .) The state also charged me in a related case, but I was convicted there. And I should have been convicted, because I was guilty: guilty of speaking the truth, guilty of insisting the government abide by the law and the constitution, guilty of exposing the entire lying system of phoney money that steals the property and future from every single American. And if I had to do it all over again, as God is my helper I would do it without one moment’s hesitation, because it was the right thing to do. Today Aaron Russo is guilty, too – guilty of making a movie to tell America the truth. And he needs our help. Should one man take the cause of the whole nation on his own shoulders? Should one man give everything, while everyone else profits and none help? Any honest man must say, “No – let me help, too. I don’t want anybody else to carry the load for me.” Here’s what Aaron needs: money to market and advertise America: From Freedom To Fascism. If we won’t help him, Aaron has told me he will make sure America sees this movie even if he has to walk it across America. But if he has to do that, the movie will never have the effect it could have. Its impact will fizzle out in little sparks, instead of the massive explosion it could touch off. Everybody who has seen this movie knows that it can change America. And I know that in America today there is no effective movement to oppose, much less turn back, the plans to create a police state and turn us into a nation of slaves. At his own risk and expense, Aaron Russo has made a movie that might be the spark to set off an explosion in the public’s heart that might win back our liberties, and our children’s future. This is not a distant cause. It is the cause of our rights and our ancient freedoms, right here in America, and it is not happening to somebody else. It’s happening right now to you, and to me, and this may be our last, best chance to wake up our neighbors. My friends know that I’m not much of one to talk about “last chances” because I know that Heaven has many more options than we can conceive. Never before has the freedom movement had a professional like Aaron Russo on its side. Aaron work has won numerous gold records, platinum records, an Emmy, a Tony, and six Academy Award nominations. His films have received seven Golden Globe nomination and actually won three Golden Globes. To make this movie Aaron had to go against all the grain of Hollywood status and popularity. More than that, he had to love the truth. We all know that advertising doesn’t come cheap. A full page ad in the New York Times costs $95,256.00. Half a page costs $52,920.A quarter page costs $26,460. One column inch costs $840. Sounds impossible, but think: if only 529 of us each gave $100, we could buy that half page ad. What am I asking from you? Give up two meals for your freedom. You probably don’t balk at dropping $6.50 for a large white chocolate macchiatto at Starbucks. When you take your wife and kids out to eat, you don’t hesitate to lay out $60 at Pizza Hut. If it’s a special occasion and you really want to celebrate, you’ll go to Fancy French Jacques or L’Aubergine and drop a hundred fifty bucks for four people and congratulate yourself on a bargain. I am asking you to donate the price of two meals out with your family to Aaron Russo, to promote America: From Freedom to Fascism. You name the price. Please note: this is not an investment, but a gift to help Aaron make sure the most Americans possible see this film. Not one cent of your money will go to anything but promoting this movie. No, it’s not an “investment” in the usual sense because you won’t get any money back, but it most certainly is an investment in your nearest and dearest interests, and the return may be restoring your country and your rights. You may think the price is too high, the risk of nothing happening too great. You may be right. It may be too late to turnAmerica from her fate. That’s what the enemies of freedom want you to think. In December, 1777 it looked like it was too late for America, and too late for freedom. Toward Valley Forge you could trace the path of Washington’s men by the blood their unshod feet left in the snow.When they arrived at their campsite, no shelters were waiting, so they spent the first two weeks building huts. Lacking blankets, they had to sit by the fire all night to keep from freezing. On December 23 Washington wrote to Congress that he had 2,898 men “unfit for duty because they were barefoot, and otherwise naked.” He wrote to his wife that she couldn’t come review the troops, because some were so ragged that their uniforms didn’t even cover their private parts. To those men with the bleeding feet, it must have seemed too late for America, but they never went home. They never gave up. They gave their last breath. Next to that, giving up a couple of meals in a restaurant doesn’t seem like much to risk, does it?

Respectfully yours,
Franklin Sanders
The Moneychanger
(888) 218-9226

P.S. If you hesitate, you’ll never get around to helping Aaron Russo, so please sit down right now, write him the biggest check you can write, and send it to:

All Your Freedoms, Inc.
908 North La Cienega Blvd.
Los Angeles, California 90069

In the For line, write “Gift to promote AFFF.”

Sorry, you won’t receive any fancy letters or acknowledgements or brass plaques, because every cent is needed to promote the film. However, you will have this: You will know that you have stood shoulder to shoulder in a line of patriots stretching back over 200 years. For me, that’s enough. I hope it will be for you, too.

P.P.S. There’s one more way you can help: send this letter to every friend you can think of. And when you do it, explain to them at the top of your e-mail that you understand nobody likes spam, but this is not spam and not junk mail. It’s a chance to restore America.

Your Money Aint What It Used To Be.

On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the FED. Mr. Kennedy's order gave the Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.

With the stroke of a pen, Mr. Kennedy was on his way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business. If enough of these silver certificates were to come into circulation they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve notes. This is because the silver certificates are backed by silver and the Federal Reserve notes are not backed by anything. Executive Order 11110 could have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level, because it would have given the government the ability to repay its debt without going to the FED and being charged interest in order to create the new money. Executive Order 11110 returned to the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed by silver.

After Mr. Kennedy was assassinated just five months later, no more silver certificates were issued. The Lone Lantern has learned that the Executive Order was never repealed by any U.S. President through an Executive Order and is still valid. Why then has no president utilized it? Virtually all of the nearly $6 trillion in debt has been created since 1963, and if a U.S. president had utilized Executive Order 11110 the debt would be nowhere near the current level. Perhaps the assassination of JFK was a warning to future presidents who would think to eliminate the U.S. debt by eliminating the FED's control over the creation of money.

Kennedy apparently reasoned that by returning to the constitution, which states that only Congress shall coin and regulate money, the soaring national debt could be reduced by not paying interest to the bankers of the Federal Reserve System, who print paper money then loan it to the government at interest. He moved in this area on June 4, 1963, by signing Executive Order 11,110 which called for the issuance of $4,292,893,815 in United States Notes through the U.S. Treasury rather than the traditional Federal Reserve System. That same day, Kennedy signed a bill changing the backing of one and two dollar bills from silver to gold, adding strength to the weakened U.S. currency.

A number of "Kennedy bills" were indeed issued - with the heading "United States Note" - but were quickly withdrawn after Kennedy's death. According to information from the Library of the Comptroller of the Currency, Executive Order 11,110 remains in effect today, although successive administrations beginning with that of President Lyndon Johnson apparently have simply ignored it and instead returned to the practice of paying interest on Federal Reserve notes. Today we continue to use worthless Federal Reserve Notes, and the deficit is at an all-time high.

We need to return to a currency backed by silver and gold, you can start by visiting

Padilla: The American Terrorist and Template For Removing Your Rights

You may have heard the name Jose Padilla thrown around the past few days, that’s because, he was finally charged with a crime after being detained on suspicion alone since MAY 2002, Detained on suspicion of ploting to use a dirty bomb in an American city. That’s great you say? He’s a terrorist who cares you say? Well Padilla also happens to be an American Citezen, who is afforded the rights given to us by our Constitution.

Mike Whitney of wrote: The case of Jose Padilla is quite simply the most important case in the history of the American judicial system. Hanging in the balance are all the fundamental principles of American jurisprudence including habeas corpus, due process and "the presumption of innocence". All of those basic concepts were suddenly revoked by a 3 judge panel.

the 4th Circuit Court, ruled that the President had the right to indefinitely imprison American citizens without charge and without any legal means for the accused to challenge the terms of his detention.

Whitney goes on to say, and I agree, “Americans seem unaware of the great loss we've all suffered by the Padilla verdict. If the President is allowed to arbitrarily decide who has "inalienable rights", than those rights become the provisional gifts of the government rather than a reliable shield against the abuse of state power. It means that every American citizen is as vulnerable to the same violation of human rights as the men currently imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay. It also means that the legal wall that shelters the citizen from the random violence of the political establishment has been reduced to rubble. The Padilla ruling is the 2nd blackest day in American history. On September 11 over 3000 Americans lost their lives, and on September 10, 2005 over 296 million Americans lost one more part of the bill of rights.

RFID at Walmart

As we witness the modern conveniences of technology seep into our lives at what cost is it to us? How much is it worth to save fractions of a second a day to lose our privacy? Companies are making millions on selling YOUR personal information so they can in turn MAKE MORE MONEY. Now America's Super Store WALMART is using a small radio transmitter embedded within the packaging of products on their store shelves, and they claim it cannot be tracked outside their store. Well I beg to differ on that Mr. Walton. IBM is currently running TV ads that clearly show that radio tags, or RFID as it is known, can help lost truckers on the highways, the ad shows a lost pair of truckers hauling products through the desert, they slam on the breaks because a woman is sitting in a desk in the middle of the road, they ask, WHAT ARE YOU DOIN OUT HERE? She replies, "the packages in your truck told us you were lost, I am here to get you back on the right path" and the commercial ends. Wal-Mart tells us the RFID tags in the products can't be tracked outside the store but IBM tells us they can track RFID tagged products in the middle of the DESERT!?! Do you want companies physically tracking you and the products you buy, so they can monitor your buying habits and make EVEN more money?

We need to put an end to all this RFID tracking business NOW, before it gets out of hand, it is seeping in under the radar but you can make a change by not shopping at stores, like Wal-Mart that use RFID.

Physics of 9/11

The physics of 9/11 — including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell — prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says BYU physics professor Steven E. Jones.
In fact, it's likely that there were "pre-positioned explosives" in all three buildings at ground zero, he says.
His study, posted online, was accepted for peer-reviewed publication next year.

Jones, who conducts research in fusion and solar energy at BYU, is calling for an independent, international scientific investigation "guided not by politicized notions and constraints but rather by observations and calculations. "It is quite plausible that explosives were pre-planted in all three buildings and set off after the two plane crashes — which were actually a diversion tactic," he writes.

The Previous investigations, including those of FEMA, and the 9/11 Commission ignore the physics and chemistry of what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, to the Twin Towers and the 47-story building known as WTC 7.

The official explanation — that fires caused buildings to collapse — can't be backed up by science, he says.
Jones offers these points:
• The three buildings collapsed nearly symmetrically, falling down into their footprints, a phenomenon associated with "controlled demolition"
• No steel-frame building, has ever collapsed due to fire. But explosives can effectively sever steel columns,
• WTC 7, which was not hit a plane, collapsed in 6.6 seconds, near free fall speed
• Horizontal puffs of smoke, known as squibs, were observed proceeding up the side the building, a phenomenon common when pre-positioned explosives are used to demolish buildings,

Bottom line---- September 11th was an inside job… and a faction within our Government planned it out.

Removing The Boot

It has been quite some time since I have turned on a TV to watch something besides a video from but after only 20 mins I had to turn off the repulsive propaganda.

All I wanted was to hear how the media was playing the wire tapping testimonies today and got more than I bargained for...

Out of instinct I turned on Fox News because after the Iraq war began that was all I ever watched... I agreed with their reporting and secretly enjoyed the conservative slant, but now years have past and I can see the whole picture... reading between the lines of every talking head, pundit, and pseudo-politico mouthpieces... Underneath the layers of make-up and behind the bleached teeth and phony smiles, I see the message and the messengers.

Between the ads for Lunesta and Prilosec, is a thick curtain of deception covering the real meaning of their reports. If it wasn't for the Lunesta, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night, because after watching only twenty min of Fox and MSNBC I have developed a need for Prilosec to keep the stomach acids at bay, and a strong case of insomnia... I must have just missed the ad for Soma...

As I strain the news through a charcoal lined coffee filter in my mind I see the lies and violations coming into view... and presented with a smile.

...Dear Sir, we are taking your home because Katrina has severely damaged it, and in the interest of time, efficiency and profit we are going to bypass your right to own property, thanks to Kelo v. City of New London, and the fine Supreme Court Justices that decide the case....

...Mr. Chairman... We don't need to bother with the formalities of Swearing on the Bible before we discuss the Wire tapping of Americans... I certainly wouldn't want to purge myself, besides I'm the Attorney General... didn't we have an agreement Mr. Specter?...

The pundits on both sides making my stomach churn like I drank spoiled milk while discussing the authority to pick and choose what laws to follow... hmmm, that one worked in the 70's but... today we are fighting a new war... a 21st century war... a war wherein we politely disregard the rights granted to you by our creator...

oooo, I can feel the burn in the back of my throat, as I hold down the bile and bite my tongue.

Flashback... to a video clip from the documentary, "The Yes Men"... Mr. Bush remarking "There ought to be limits to freedom..." God where the hell was I when he said that? No doubt I was still polishing one of two patent leather boots as it slowly applied pressure to the back of my head, with my teeth firmly planted on a curb... and the other one just tapped the beat of the Fox News jingle.

Then what happened? When did the sun shine down and the boot remove it's pressure? When did everything become clear again... I knew these things so long ago, but chose to fall into lock step with the sheep, as they were lined up to be shaved and slaughtered... when did the scales fall from my eyes and the veil of deceit lift from my line of sight? Over the course of several months it took for the transformation to take place... the layers and layers of silt and grime were slowly being washed away with every second of Truth pushing through the dirt. While the voices of Americans, like Jones, Avery, Paul, and McKinney reached my ears... It all became so clear again... the New Order or the Ages had never stopped marching, it was just the steady drum of their goose stepping that had put me to sleep...

My silent weapon makes only a constant hum, as millions of bits are transferred to the new ears and new eyes of a people who are seeking for a light in this darkness... bringing ever closer one more person from the deep slumber to the reality that we all need to take our teeth off the curb and throw that oppressive boot from the back of our head to the ground... I will no longer hold the shoe polish, I will wield the Sword of Truth and cut the throat of my slave master, and I'm not waiting for the next commercial break to do it.

Land of the Free*

A couple things I wanted to say today... While driving to work Monday morning I noticed a sharp looking Jaguar S-Type with special plates. These license plates had the State of Illinois Seal as a watermark behind the number 43 or 47, the number escapes me now... And on the right and left side of the plate said, Illinois House or Senate... Any way this guy was a bigwig of some sort. As I looked in through his rear window I could see that this jerk was talking on his cell phone, without a headset!!! Now, I know they just passed a ridiculous law that bans talking on your cell phone while driving, unless you have a headset... But this politician was just jabbering away... of all days I leave my camera at home. If I would have had it with me I would have got out of my car and ran up to his window and asked him why he thinks he can drive and talk and the rest of us cannot... man I was angry... I will be on the lookout for that scumbag... mark my words. Just because they make the laws doesn't mean they don't have to follow them.

Then on my way home from work I was jamming to some Pink Floyd from the Ummagumma album at an intersection. There was a bus in front of me with his flashers on, I assumed he was waiting for his new passengers to get situated. As I was sitting there a man in a CTA (Chicago Transit authority) uniform walks up to my car and tells me to "go ahead and turn right in front of the bus, I'm the driver and I need to do some work on the engine." I thought to myself that is odd, you can get a ticket for turning right in front of a bus... but if the driver is out and the bus isn't going anywhere it must be okay... so I pull up along side the bus and notice there is a driver at the wheel... and he is proceeding to drive forward... WHAT THE HELL?!?! I was just about to turn in front of the bus at the instruction of the "driver" in the CTA uniform... glad I didn't listen to that jerk... I would have been T-boned by the bus with a ticket to boot... What a fine city we live in.

Next order of business... the Chicago Smoking Ban. How many more things will be required to do or be restricted from doing before this country is no longer the land of the free*? They want to impose a smoking ban in the City because one employee of a restaurant claims she got cancer from working 8 hours a day for 20 years in a restaurant. I call BULLSHIT! This woman has been appearing before the city council, on TV commercials, and radio ads... I find it amazing that in here little sob story she says, "My doctor says I LIKELY got throat cancer from working in the restaurant industry." The key word here lady is LIKELY... can we look that up?

like·ly ( P ) Pronunciation Key (lkl)adj. like·li·er, like·li·est Possessing or displaying the qualities or characteristics that make something probable: They are likely to become angry with him. Within the realm of credibility; plausible: not a very likely excuse. Apparently appropriate or suitable: There were several likely candidates for the job. Apt to achieve success or yield a desired outcome; promising: a likely topic for investigation. Attractive; pleasant: found a likely spot under a shady tree for the picnic. adv. Usage Problem Probably.

Well that says it all folks... her diagnosis was based on a probability, a non-conclusive decision. Give me a break!

Does a coal-miner complain about "Black Lung" every time he goes to work? NO, he just keeps on truckin... This woman is a loser a puppet for the Cancer foundations that claim second hand smoke kills... I CALL BULLSHIT on that as well! Have you read the studies that claim that second hand smoke doesn't kill? Well they are out there find them yourself.

I agree second hand smoke can be annoying and a little uncomfortable when you are trying to eat a prime rib but hell... ok... SIT IN THE NON-SMOKING SECTION. Get over it, your Nazi doctrines will not restrict my "life choices"... If you want to restrict smoking in a restaurant... hmmm... maybe I will fly with that.... but on to the mother of the question... You want to restrict smoking in BARS? You have got to be kidding me! If I want to have a smoke and a beer in some dark corner of the earth... let it be. It's not like these bars are the opium dens of the late 1800's... causing people to forsake their families so they can smoke and drink... well maybe some alcoholics do... but really... why ban smoking in a Pub, beer garden, lounge or bar? DO they really care about our health that bad? And when was it the Government's job to legislate for the safety of our health? Seatbelts, cell-phones, smoking... $$$ Fine me and they get paid... the dirty bastards... and they do it in the name of safety... just like they burned our freedoms with the Patriot Act... but I digress, back to the safety issue... what will happen to all the smokers that wish to enjoy a cigarette and a cold drink on a frosty Chicago winter night? Are they not concerned with the chance people may get frostbitten, catch a nasty cold, pr get hypothermia? What about the dark neighborhood holes in the wall that are buried in a residential area... loud, drunk, smokers outside disturbing the peace so that the 3 non-smokers inside can have "cleaner" lungs... these Cancer foundations are nothing but Nazi Front Groups imposing the will of the few on the masses... all in the name of safety... it makes me puke...

Welcome to the "Land of the Free*"

* Your freedom is contingent that you follow all the rules and regulations made up by corrupt politicians, and added to state and local municipalities and the US Constitution, so that they can pad their wallets with your hard earned dollar(the worthless dollar they print).

Chicago City of Crooks!


I again walked out my building this morning to where I had parked my car... It was there, no tickets, no boot... Today will be a good day. I walk down to the Treasure Island to get some groceries and upon my return I notice most of the cars on the street are gone except for three. Mine is still there but what do I see? A bright orange ticket! I look up at some of the trees and street posts and see that orange paper signs had been posted, attached with twine. "NO PARKING FRIDAY - STREET CLEANING." When were they posted? They weren't there yesterday. Now I have a gift from the City of Chicago, thank's Daley you slimy crook!

So they can just put up a sign whenever they wish and ticket the citiezens of their city at will, I guess... And what recourse do I have, does anyone have? You can send in the ticket and dipute it... but then you get a little letter back saying, "We have no concern for you you meaningless taxpayer, pay up or we will hold your car hostage in our massive city pound"

Once again the "City that works for itself!"

Check out this video of a Chicago Police Tow... they have no respect for your car.

The City That Works For Itself

So... I walked out the front of my building this morning and wandered on down to the place where I parked my car and noticed a marking on the road. A tire had been dragged in the while the car was in park, and my car was no where to be found. Franticly I paced up and down the street, "maybe I just forgot where I parked my car." I thought.... "Maybe I should have paid those two parking tickets... but they need three to tow" my mind raced. I found a telephone number on a city sign and called it, "Sorry, Sir.... we haven't towed any cars from that location, today or yesterday, call this number 773-265-7605 if you need more info..." the lazy City of Chicago employee responded. I then called the number and spoke to what sounded like a Chicago Police Dispatch Officer. I didn't know the license plate number... I just bought the car. I tracked down the vin# from my car insurance card and told the Officer the number, "....oh yeah got it right here... towed it Monday night... no sticker... cubs game... you can't park during a Chicago Cubs game... it's over at Pound 6 on 701 N. Sacramento... and you owe $180... get a sticker..." I don't even reside in Chicago... and I need a sticker to park my car? So long story short... I lost a day of work plus the $180 to buy back my car from the city.... they will sell your car if you don't claim it in enough time you know... Mayer Daley is a crook and I hope he is prosecuted for all the slimy deals he does in "The City That Works" or should I say "The City That Works for Itself!"

The LLS Blog is open for buisness...

I called the Golf, Il police station today... let them know there was a dead deer in Golf Road this afternoon, ... other than that... pretty exciting Huh? Listened to some talk radio this morning, Bush was thanking some people for finally getting his judges an "up or down" vote... I also heard on the radio that some of the "sunset provisions" on the Patriot act will be expiring soon... not sure which ones though... I'll get back to you on that.
