02/24/12. 77 year old Retired Chicago Police officer, former Alderman of Chicago, and current Cook County Commissioner William Beavers has been tagged/targeted by the Federal Government for not paying taxes on $255,000. Commissioner Bill Beavers told reporters he was approached to wear a wire for the Feds to spy on Cook County Commissioner Daley, leader of the County's finance committee. Also brother of Bill Daley, former Chief of Staff to President Obama and Brother to former Mayor of Chicago Daley. Commissioner Beavers said he told the feds that he would not do it and that is why the federal government is investigating him on back taxes. More to come, stay tune.
02/23/12. Former Mayor Daley told reporters that he has not driven a car for 30 years. That is why he needs a driver. He said that his RED Light Cameras would probably catch him running through a red light if he were driving. Then he laughed. Then all of the media personel reporting on what the former Mayor of Chicago said laughed. Everyone was laughing. So funny. Then former Mayor Daley told reporters he and his law firm will open a branch of their Law Firm in China. Yes China. Suddenly the media had no real questions for the mayor. They were to busy laughing about the possibility of Mayor Daley running through a red light even though he has a driver. The one question I have for the Mayor is what really happened to the billion dollars the City got for leasing out the cities Parking Meters for 99 years to a French owned company? Was this somewhat of a PAYOUT his law firm was able to profit from? Was the Chinese involved in any way? Was this a payback for getting the 44th President elected? Was this money used to buy majority ownership of the "New York Stock Exchange"? All International/Foreign money to pick up U.S. ASSETS that generate REAL BIG SUMS of CASH FLOW. You know, questions like that. But I'm not part of the Chicago media that is hand picked from powers to be to report on the current or former mayor of CHICAGO. These questions DRIVE me to get to the truth about the Cities Parking Meter Sale/Billion dollars that went missing/spent in one year. Wow self financed deal on the backs of the tax payers of Chicago. This was a prelude of what Barack Hussein Obama's people did on a grander scale using federal dollars from all of the tax payers of America. James Liceaga, editor "YYYC".
02/22/12. Hispanics are going to VOTE in 2012. The number could reach about 12.2 million Hispanic voters. Republican and Democrats are looking/seeking to get this vote. The swing vote is the Hispanic Vote. Top Issues for Latinos are as follows: JOBS = 50%. EDUCATION = 49%. HEALTH CARE = 45%. TAXES = 34%. FEDERAL BUDGET DEFICIT = 34%. IMMIGRATION = 33%. Solid numbers right. A few weeks ago I wrote about Latinos in the United States losing about 67% of their total wealth from 2008 to the end of 2010. No wonder jobs are number one in the latino community. The leader for Republicans to get their message out to Hispanics in the U.S. is Ms. Bettina Inclan. She is the communications and political strategist for the GOP. The Democrats senior advisor for Hispanic affairs is Juan Sepulveda. He was President Obama's director of the President's Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. Currently, Republicans have identified about 20% of Hispanics that like their message. Republicans are interested in doubling that number. On the other side, Democrats have identified 67% of Hispanic Voters are purely Democrats. Will the 44th President get to keep/count on this turn out by Hispanic Voters? More to come, stay tune.

The poor in the United States of America extends to a FAMILY of four earning $22,000 to $24,000 per year. That is gross pay, not net.

Of course celebrate with the one you love today. That is Important. But maybe we should celebrate Valentines Day differently. Together of course. Let's celebrate this Valentines day by, LOVING the Right to VOTE! By LOVING the idea of being FREE! Embrassing and Loving our Constitution! By LOVING the idea to disagree with your Government. Hugging and LOVING the Other side of your View Point. LOVING the concept of Agreeing to Disagree. LOVING the notion to be kinder to your fellow man/woman. These Valentine wishes would probably cause more LOVE in our lives and nation. Let's work harder starting today to LOVE and Embrace one another in 2012. LOVE makes a couple stronger and that helps build a stronger Nation. A Confident Nation. Love You, James Liceaga editor YYYC 02/13/12. GOP candidate Mitt Romney wins the State of Maine.

Catholic Bishops in the United States have rejected President Obama's mandate that religious health organizations provide women contraceptives. The view of the President is that if religious organizations receive federal funding/payments from medicare that it is reasonable that these organizations provide contraceptives for women. The 44th President's compromise is that religious health institutions do not have to provide any contraceptives for women. That religious health institutions do not even have to fill out the paper work for women/patients who what contraceptives. That will fall on the patient's health insurance company, not the Catholic Church. Sounds like a full compromise to me, but the powerful Catholic Church and their Bishops in America have rejected this reasonable compromise. The question is this, does the Catholic Church want more Abortions? I believe that Contraceptives is better than Abortions. If the Catholic Church or any other Religious Health Institution does not want to deal with women contraceptive than the Church should opt out/refuse any payments from the Government. That is Fair and is an easy solution. More to come, stay tune.
