So been working on a longer blog post about the LarryBoy'sEmpire's budget dog and phony show, but this week was some typical silliness deserving a notice...
Thought it conspicuous LarryBoy didn't show in the Labor Day Parade....I mean it's obvious he detests public service workers' unions but never stopped him from showing his smiley wave before...
But lo and behold, there he is at the 911 ceremony honoring his ARCHENEMIES...police and fire!!!

Wow, LarryBoy's Empire just tumbling around in BizarroWorld....didja see the TIF tiff?
"...If the city doesn’t get enough money from taxes to pay back the bonds, it will have to find a way to make up the difference. Typically, when a TIF district isn’t producing enough revenue, city leaders have to borrow money from the general fund to pay its bills for the year...." WORRIED NOW???

It appears most the TIF Districts created by LarryBoy have been robbing the general fund for years..,.transfers in,out,de-tiffed,'s the ULTIMATE SHELLGAME

I have an idea! Let's blame the EMPLOYEES, LAW, CONTRACTS, and ARBITRATORS...BRILLIANT!!!!

Didja see this story, with the picture of LarryBoy in front of the casino 'set'? It was at the Riverfront Museum Park.

Let's step back, remember his website,
and his "Leadership Position Paper"?
"...The current administration has failed to set clear priorities, and instead has been distracted by novelty
items like a gambling casino and a publicly funded convention center. ..."

So we got
Rockford leaders celebrate official start of riverwalk (also at the Riverfront Museum Park.)
And today,
In Saturday's paper: Study keeps whitewater park dreams alive.

So in these economic times HOW IN SAM HILL, IS A RIVERWALK and WHITEWATER PARK NOT "NOVELTIES???????????"

So I'm not gonna go into how my computer crashed and I lost passwords (and blah, blah, blah).
Now I'm back and just gotta say, LarryBoy's Empire of Rockford resembles "BizarroWorld" more with each passing day.

Check THIS out....LarryBoy swaggered into office with all this talk of cutting-edge-modern-technology-better-government. I understand used to be every supervisor (guess they're "managers" now) was issued a Blackberry (don't know if this still is going on, budget cuts and all, dontcha know).

On that webpage, under ISSUES we find Time for the Future... (gee, gives me goosebumps!)

"We must improv communication opportunities with public
elected officials through use of technologies like e-mail and the City’s web site."

REALLY??? Maybe oughta think about, oh, that futurist program SPELLCHECK!!!

current administration has failed to set clear priorities, and instead has been distracted by novelty
items like a gambling casino

Couple things this week...
"... Dave’s Hot Dog Stand, a summertime fixture. This summer, the stand and other street vendors will have the opportunity to return to the Main Street Festival Zone, which is Main from Elm to Mulberry streets...."

Got THAT? They kicked out this guy to tear out the pedestrian mall where he set up....
And MILLIONS OF TAX$$$$$$$$$ later.... we let him move back though probably have to CLOSE the street to be safe for customers...

Have you driven that clusterf*&%k?
The way they go from the parking lane and then ballooned out corners...a regular BOTTLENECK....and moving 'traffic' thru downtown? WHAT A JOKE! there's no left turn signals or lanes so IF someone wants to turn left and you are 3-4 cars back, you might sit thru 3-4 green lights,waiting while traffic stretches behind block after block. Amnd just wait till they spend hundres of thousands to make Church St. 2-way...25 cars downtown will have the potential for absolute GRIDLOCK!~!

That'll 'revitalize downtown' huh?

I've always gotten a real kick out of the daily paper touts "Sunshine Week" a hypothetical time to call for more openness in government dealings. They publish a few editorials, cartoons, and then it's gone till next year.

There's just so much about our city administration they choose to keep in the dark.
How about...did you get your new "at&t Real Yellow Pages" phonebook? The inside of the front cover-LarryBoy and LarryDaddy's grinning faces, advertising their ambulance-chasing law firm. Seems SO UNETHICAL that a full-time, elected public official shills for his private practice.
AND, to top it off, there, right next to The Mayor's head, the CITY LOGO taxpayers PAID for, the ubiquitous "Real, Original" crap!!!!!!

Just don't seem right.

Haven't heard about that 'selling the water system' idea for a while, but that doesn't mean LarryBoy isn't scheming behind the scenes.
So here's an example of "Privatized Government" services...

"About 360 residents of Cherry Valley Township could see their water rates quadruple by the end of the year...."
