    please don't let yourself be compromised. Don't let the Chicago Boys and their Shock Doctrine get into your head. Stay steadfast. And get yourself some good security.

      are you talking about.

      Single payer IS the answer.

        I am from Chicago, now living in Oregon. But I know more about Chicago and Illinois politics than most people both from living there for so long and from a considerable amount of time spent participating in ward politics.

        I admit there is a unique style to Illinois politics, and I'm proud of it. Rough, direct, sometimes crazy, but usually productive. Western suburban machine politics admittedly disgusts me, but singling out Chicago politics as being inherently odious is just flat objectionable.

        Single payer IS the answer.

          acolytes or graduates of the Chicago School of Economics - aka Friedmanites that brought Pinochet and the like.

            I didn't get your reference. Yes the Chicago School has a very questionable basis in reality.

              they have been directly responsible for wrecking things in many countries. The Bushies and the Tea Party also live in an alternate universe - still we're bearing the brunt of that.

            •  so... you haven't read the Shock Doctrine? (0+ / 0-)

              anyone who's even looked at it cursorily will instantly recognize the "Chicago Boys" reference!
