Republican McKinley Slams ‘Chicago Machine’ From Jeremiah Wright’s Church
I’m Paul McKinley and I’m running against the machine… I’m not running against a candidate, I’m running against the machine that’s been in power in this district for 60 years. And if you think it’s alright that all these boarded up houses in our community is all right, you vote for them. If you think that it’s all right that our young men and women that have no jobs and standing on the corner, you vote for them, don’t for vote for me…
440 young kids were shot in the city of Chicago last year, 3000 people in the city of Chicago were shot. That means the machine is working, it’s no accident that’s what’s happening in our community. The machine is working and it’s working out fine. You don’t have anything and they do, your community is going to hell in a hand basket, and their community, there’s no poverty problem over there, they’re going to work, they’ve got jobs, there’s nobody getting shot up in their schools… If you want to keep the same system, you vote for them, don’t vote for me.
The Meyers Report: NLRB Ruling, Landmark Case?
On Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, the D.C. Federal Court ruled against the President’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

“In setting aside the President’s recess appointments, the court also may invalidate 600+ NLRB 2012 rulings for lack of authority to even function,” said Chicago labor attorney James Hendricks, who has several NLRB cases pending in the D.C. Federal courts.
The American Dream Starts With a Quality Education
Our current system of public education is broken and has now reached a point of great disparity between rich and poor schools. Denying parents access to quality education should be found unconstitutional under the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as was done in 1954 in Brown vs Topeka. That ruling ended the practice of “separate but equal” used to justify segregation of schools by race. We must now end “separate and unequal” between rich and poor.
ALL children deserve access to a quality education and should not be arrested or imprisoned to make sure that happens.
The Meyers Report: Economic Notes
GDP Numbers Skewed. The markets shrugged off reports of a sharp drop in consumer confidence and a contraction in 2012 Q4 GDP failed to depress stocks. The decline of 0.1% in the reported preliminary 4Q GDP misrepresents what really happened. The decline, which is an “annual” rate, was driven downward by two factors: a slower growth in inventories and sharply falling commodity prices. Continue reading…
