Musings of a Radio Talk Show Host

Sometimes Rudi K covered these topics on the air, other times, it's comments he wanted to make during the week because they struck a cord that couldn't wait, they needed attending at the time.  We hope you find them to be more than his thoughts, we hope, as with our program, you find them stimulating and cause you to stop and think.  Feel free to write us with your thoughts.

PROFITING OFF OF CHICAGO KILLINGS?
Consider these facts:
Today is the 253rd day of 2018.Within the city limits of Chicago, as of this morning, more than 2,113 individuals have been shot, 374 have been killed. On average, this year, EVERY DAY, more than one person is murdered (1.5) within the city limits of Chicago.

In the two previous years, 650 people died as the result of 3,457 people shot in 2017. In 2016, 4,349 people shot resulted in 771 deaths.

Since Jan. 1, 2016 to today, we clicked off 983 calendar days. In those 983 days, there have been 9,919 shootings JUST within the city limits of Chicago. That's over 10 SHOOTINGS A DAY. TEN---TEN within the city limits of just ONE CITY!

Statistics show that most(nearly all) shootings/killings, within the city limits of Chicago, occur during a 48 hour period (Friday evening to Sunday evening) and most often between the hours of 10:30PM and 1:00AM. Shootings are mostly confined to the south and west sides of the city.

If so much is known about when, where and what time these shootings take place, why hasn't the mayor (Rahm Emanuel) asked the Governor (Bruce Rauner) for an overwhelming presence of the Illinois NG in those areas of the city where shootings happen?

**75 people were shot over this past weekend! These aren't the number of shootings; this number is the number of people that actually took a bullet. SEVENTY FIVE!! ** Link to Chicago Weekend (Click here to read)

PROFITING? Maybe I'm saying the following with tongue in cheek and then again? But,I wonder how many in the mayor's office and the brass at CPD headquarters own florist shops or stock in FTD? Seriously, for this to go on and on, there has to be some sort of underlying reason---doesn't there?

FYI: After making my comment, I decided to look up some info on FTD (kind of just for the heck of it). Guess what: FTD announced, in May, it would move it's global headquarters from Downers Grove, Ilinois to Chicago. The move was completed this summer. Here's part of that Press Release and Rahm Emanuel's assessment as Chicago being "..the best city in the world"....What is he thinking?

Press Releases FTD Companies, Inc.
Relocating Headquarters To Chicago Relocation is Part of a New Strategic Growth Plan for Global Floral Company CHICAGO, May 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Mayor Rahm Emanuel today joined leading global floral company FTD Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: FTD) to announce the company is relocating its world headquarters to Chicago. FTD has been based in Downers Grove for 31 years and the move to Chicago is designed to strengthen the company's position as the world's leading floral innovator. "Chicago is the best city in the world for a company that wants to expand its footprint, create new jobs and invest in the future," Mayor Emanuel said. "I commend FTD for choosing to relocate its global headquarters to Chicago and put down roots in our great city.

REGARDLESS OF YOUR POLITICAL LEANINGS....
Your actions and your comments are a reflection as to your character, and indirectly the character of the candidate you support.

Weigh your words, use discretion in your actions and keep in mind, that we were all created equal. Use caution, to not give the appearance of being "better than", for it will surely make you look as less...

Some of the comments on the political pages of social media are sewer rhetoric of hate, biased ridicule and despicable digs at mortality. To understand the ineptness of Congress, we need only look at their supporters who fooled enough people to join them in the voting booth.

There is no such thing as your candidate always being right and his/her opponent always wrong. There is no such thing as you knowing everything and someone who disagrees with you, always being a ......... (uncivil words).

To drain the swamp in DC, maybe we should clean out the sewers in our communities---the places where the supporters of swamp politicians live.

Of course, if you wish ill will on America, then keep it up. You're playing into the hands of those who are hell bent on destroying this nation.

TODAY IS A DAY TO REFLECT (FOR ME)
I understand the world continues on today and I understand there are many issues that need to be addressed.

We all have priorities. Today, my priority is to reflect on every moment I spent with my mother, from my birth until one year ago today. I thank God for all the memories I have of her.

I won't attempt to tell you what she meant to me; words wouldn't be kind enough. Nor could I paint you a picture; colors wouldn't be worthy enough. T
herefore, I will be silent today.

While on this earth, MY MOTHER was a loving child of God. Today, she abides with Him.

It was one year ago today, my mother passed away.

MUELLER'S *CARTE BLANC CARD NEEDS TO BE REVOKED
After nearly 1 and 1/2 years of nosing around in business far from the original inquiry, this guy needs to be reigned in. This isn't our legal system in action. This is a sinister "get Trump" runaway train, backed by the "Never Trump" group, whose broad membership includes current and former republican and democrat congressional members, former presidents, LEOs, international figures and charities.

If after all of these people and after all of this time there is still nothing to link our president to any collusion/conspiracy---then it's time for ALL AMERICANS, regardless of race, sex, party, religion, creed or color to INSIST this man and his team be stopped.

IMAGINE if they did this to you or a member of your family? Would you stay silent and let them continue??  Imagine this against any other president in recent memory.  This has become more than just a witch hunt to "Get Trump", this is now an attack on the Executive Branch, the Oval Office and the expressed rights of the presidency.  To continue this charade is more than a slap in the face, it is an in-your-face defiance and ignoring of the very code by which we live --- The Rule of Law.

IT'S TIME FOR ALL TO SAVE THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT and end this mockery of what used to be our legal system. We have become a poor example of a nation under the rule of law. We should be ashamed to sit silently by and let this continue in our country---where "equal justice for all" gets a big laugh.

*For those old enough to remember this prestigious card

DEMOCRAT LEADERS HOLD WAKE...
As more people are laughing all the way to the bank, Demcrats fear the worst--People could die laughing.

With Apple's announcement, its now added itself to the bulging list of companies that are rewarding employees with significant bonuses of $1,000, $2,000 and now Apple with an magnanimous offering of $2,500 in shares of stock (WOW).

And let's not overlook that Apple is bringing $354 BILLION back to the USA over the next five years and the move (from China) will add 25,000 AMERICAN jobs.

Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen, America is riding the Trump train to greatness.

Those of us who are able to think for ourselves and see the good results of this administration can only hope that the uninformed, kool aid drinking people that still worship at the altar of B. Hussein Obombast, will learn that a strong America is a good America.

In the meantime, Dems and their allies can be seen holding onto their last hope for support (as in votes)---illegal immigrants and asylum seeking refugees that escape thier sh&tholes and then become indignant when their sh&tholes are called sh&tholes.

AS FOR ME---I am proud to be part of the movement to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
