  1. Not literally criminal, but governance controlled by lobbying and money is a gross and bipartisan distortion of the democratic republic.

  2. Who’s the worse criminals Cindy?

    Freemason Tryon or the Muffinhead Village Board advancing the theft?

  3. At Prairie Ridge HS the English Dept is making my son read Ginsberg’s homosexual poem “Howl.”

    A concerned parent of another kid that classes sent me this:

    “Allen Ginsberg already has a place in history. His poem “Howl” challenged the very definition of literature, and his place among the Beat poets has captured the imaginations of generations of thinkers. But we usually try to not to mention his time with NAMBLA.The North American Man/Boy Love Association is a group that campaigns to give adult men the legal right to have sex with young boys, and Allen Ginsberg was one of their most eager members. He insisted it wasn’t about pedophilia. NAMBLA, he said, was a “forum for reform,” and he joined it “in defense of free speech.”The “reform” he wanted, though, was more than a little creepy. He wanted to legalize child pornography. He accused the government of an “incompetent linkage of pornography and violence.” He thought we should be more like the ancient Greeks, saying, “Intergenerational love was a social practice praised by philosophers.”And he didn’t stop there—he also tried to convince people that there is “no universal consensus on ‘consent.’ ”[6] That might sound intellectual, but let’s be honest about what he meant. Coming from a member of NAMBLA, that’s just a fancy way of saying, “How do you know eight-year-olds aren’t asking for it?”

  4. Was the contract originally $6k/mo?

    Just asking.

    Tryon was Gummerson’s lil’ puppet.

  5. That’s a random bomb in this thread, about Ginsberg.

    This is a good opportunity to stand up with facts.

    Ginsberg as pedophile is old news, and this teacher could find others to use in class.

    I’d put Ginsberg in the same box as others who are found out to be pedophiles, racists, anti-democracy, sexually violent, and so forth: not to be admired, but held up as examples of how intelligent people can become popular in culture and politics, yet be evil to the core.

  6. This is the SWAMP….and it’s right here in Algonquin and Crystal Lake.

    Guys like Mike Tryon, Aaron Shepley, and Tim Schloneger have enriched themselves/their families by doing this repulsive taxpayer cheating activity.

    I don’t know much about Schloneger, but by this activity he’s identified himself as part of the SWAMP.

    I know Shepley hated Trump, I know Tryon too, but I’d sure like to hear what Schloneger has to say – my guess, since he’s part of the SWAMP, Schloneger hates Trump too.

    LOL: because Trump is “crude”?

    …..no, because Trump tried to drain the SWAMP.

  7. It’s not enough Tryon is milking us already via pension?!
