Don't Be a Moron

1/26/2009   Comment on This

I had Jim Laski on my Chicago Overnight radio program last week. Jim is a former Chicago City Clerk who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He wrote the book, "My Fall from Grace: City Hall to Prison Walls".

What struck me most about him was that he was completely honest. Instead of blaming everyone for his mistakes, he admitted to the fact that he was guilty. No blaming whatsoever. He had his hand out, and it was clearly wrong. The Feds have a conviction rate of a little over 98%. When they want you, they will get you. Their pockets are deeper than yours can ever be.

What does this moron Blago think he's doing by going on this sympathy tour with appearances on "The View" and "Good Morning America"? Put him up against Michael Savage and that would be great. But he's too much of a wuss for that.

My point here is that they got Blago, they got Ryan, and the only thing Blago has to decide now is how long he wants to spend in prison.

Laski admitted that the first three weeks after he was indicted, he was going to fight all the way. But after a lengthy talk with his attorney and his wife, he decided to plead guilty and was out in 11 months as opposed to spending 6-10 years in prison like Ryan, who is serving a 6.5 year sentence.

The egos are enormous in politics. The whole point here is accountability. When you're wrong, take the punishment like a man and move on. This country really and truly has gotten soft.

I am a moderate more to the conservative side simply because the conservative way is to stand on your own two feet. Depending on ANYONE will only lead you into mediocrity. This country is now depending on Obama to get them out of a mess. It has nothing to do with Obama. It has to do with you. Pull up your boot straps, get accountable for whatever you're doing and let's get moving.

Contact me to let me me know what you think of the show.
