Destination: Chicago - The Final Chapter

The next morning was rough. I felt like a two day old turd on a month old mat of maggots. But it was just a car ride back to Chicago - there would be no physical moving involved in my day for the most part. Sure, I had to get out of bed and go down to the car and then get out of the car, but I could manage that. I'm a fighter.
Before leaving I had asked the groom if any of the many casinos we saw on the way were safe, given that they were all in Gary. He assured me the Horseshoe Casino was safe.
The Horseshoe casino sits outside Garyish and has a breathtaking view of Chicago from that dump, Indiana. It's owned by Cesar's Palace and is a magnificent stop on your way back to civilization. I lost 300 dollars on a Seinfeld themed game.
Back in Chicago, Gay Pride was in full swing and so was traffic. My aunt lived on the main thoroughfare, so it took some time to get from the shore to the condo. But we could hear it from the shore.
Once we got back the parade was in full swing. Louder and prouder than ever, the folks in Chicago really know how to Pride it up. My biggest takeaway from the parade: it was one long commercial. Every float was sponsored by you name it. At one point I saw a float that said MBLGBT and thought I missed two new groups to the party. Nope. It was Mercedes Benz Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender. I can't be for sure, but every float I saw was sponsored. Which, I understand, but it kinda takes the whole radical out of the event.
The best part was when the parade was over. We walked down to Wrigley field and it was like a warzone. People of all nationalities, sexual orientations, and Coke or Pepsi preference were smashed out of their minds on intoxicants. We saw a man shivering in the 80 degree weather hunkered over and mumbling to himself. One woman was walking in the streets that were full of glass barefoot. A man was taken away in a stretcher. Beers all over the place. People coming down hard off drugs.
But, luckily, no sex.
The parade really brought everyone in town together to do drugs in a somewhat safe environment. However, a number of people were very bad at doing drugs.
The police made a strong, military presence, but seemed quiet accommodating and friendly.
After walking through block after block of rave aftermath we got to majestic Wrigley. Then we went looking for pizza. We ended up at this stuffed crust affair that honestly just tasted like Flying Pie.
Back home, we sat and watched the leftovers from the parade. People were out all night just roaming the streets and cursing, hugging, or almost getting in fights.
There was a threesome of women made up of a victim, a protector, and a lookout. The victim seemed to be coming down hard off something and the protector kept hugging her, giving her water, and talking her down. Then the lookout would walk out on the street and make sure no one saw them. But the lookout really sucked at this job because she would start doing it and then go to a window and start staring at her reflection. This went on for about two hours. Finally, someone came and picked them up. But they were far from safe, because the car that picked them up almost hit two other cars stopped at a light.
I thought about going back to the Gyro place, but didn't. The type of people still on the street late at night after that party would probably be looking for blood.
Thus ends my trip to Chicago and Indiana. On the way back I stole this dude's hotdog at the airport on accident, but that was about it. Well, I didn't steal it. The guy in front of me stole mine and I took the next one that was the other guys cuz it was Chicago style and I don't like Chicago style.
To me, the best hotdog is the 7/11: Mustard, onions, and cheese sauce.
Now! Now you have learned something.

In response to the Right Wing mass email: In the past 48 hours, these companies reported layoffs. I responded correctly to EACH claim with citations and links for reference. Please share if you enjoy the truth.

Westinghouse - 200
Total lie. They are laying off 50 people, not 200, and have been slowly closing their operations down since Sept. 11, 2011. So they announced the company will be closed by 2015 in 2011: http://annistonstar.com/view/full_story/20755025/article-More-layoffs-announced-at-Anniston-weapons-incinerator?instance=1st_left
Research in Motion Ltd - 3,000
These layoffs were announced in June of 2012. Not because of the economy but because they create a product that has lost demand since other competitors have sold more goods: http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2012/11/08/research-in-motion-cuts-jobs-at-irving-headquarters/
Lightyear Network Solutions - 15
These aren't layoffs...they are permanent in an effort to downsize a company that has been losing money for a long time. http://www.wkyt.com/wymt/home/headlines/Company-lays-off-workers-in-Pikeville-177766221.html
Providence Journal - 23
This is a newspaper that has seen its circulation decline from 90,085 to 83,733 in a year's time. They have been regularly laying off employees like every other newspaper across the country as less Americans get their news from newspapers and choose to get it free from the Internet and television: http://www2.turnto10.com/business/2012/nov/08/providence-journal-announces-more-layoffs-ar-1233784/
Hawker Beechcraft - 410
This company declared bankruptcy last year and sold to a chinese company in July of 2011. This recent round of layoffs was 170 people and their business has been in decline since 2008. They make luxury private jets for rich people and I'm assuming the rich can only own a certain amount of private luxury jets at one time: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20120802/us-hawker-beechcraft-layoffs/
Boeing 61,000
Boeing expanded it's business dramatically during the Iraq war with HUGE contracts with the defense department. As the war came to a close, they saw their business decline. I guess if you want constant war, Boeing would always be making billions from the government but this is their official statement: "Boeing said the changes were not a response to the threat of additional, across-the-board U.S. budget cuts due to take effect on January 2, or the outcome of U.S. elections, but represented another step in its continuing drive to "be more competitive while investing in technologies and people." So the company itself is deying it has anything to do with the presidential elections and that they layoffs were planned and expected: http://www.catholic.org/business/story.php?id=48428
CVPH Medical Center - 17
This hospital received $3.2 million dollars in federal grant money to keep their doors open but their expenses exceeded their revenues by more than $400,000. They simply don't know how to run a business apparently. http://www.cvph.org/news-and-events/news-detail.aspx?newsid=45
US Cellular - 980
This was the result of a sale of a company to a competitor. Sprint (cell phone company) purchased US Cellular to eliminate a competitor in a certain market. This was a planned sale that took place over the past month, it just happened to be announced on Wednesday. It takes longer than one day to sell a mult-million dollar company: http://www.wirelessweek.com/News/2012/11/carriers-Sprint-Buys-US-Cellular-Midwest-Markets-for-480M/
Commerzbank - 6,000
This is the funniest one so far. This is a bank from Germany and Poland that has absolutely no connection to the U.S. or Obama In looking for official layoff reports, I found this statement from the bank from Nov. 8 where they announced they are investing $2 BILLION euros in their company. Sounds like growth to me. https://www.commerzbank.com/en/hauptnavigation/presse/pressemitteilungen/archiv1/2012/quartal_12_04/presse_archiv_detail_12_04_9794.html
Iberia - 7,000
This is the second funniest because it's an airline out of SPAIN that has no connections (or jobs) to the U.S. Spain's economy has been sinking harder that the U.S. since 2007. Absolutely no connection to America or Obama: http://www.theworld.org/2012/11/spains-iberia-airlines-announces-layoffs/
Momentive Performance Materials - 150
This is a TEMPORARY LAYOFF. All of these jobs will be reinstated in two weeks, as reported by the owner of the company here: http://www.tylerstarnews.com/page/content.detail/id/508789/Momentive-Inc--plans-temporary-layoffs-for-150.html?nav=5008
Brake Parts, LLC - 75
These layoffs were disclosed on Oct. 29. I'm afraid that was a full week BEFORE Obama's re-election. Absolutely no connection here: http://www.tylerstarnews.com/page/content.detail/id/508789/Momentive-Inc--plans-temporary-layoffs-for-150.html?nav=5008
Gameforge Berlin - 20
I'm not even looking this up. If people are stupid and desperate enough to blame Obama for the layoff of 20 people in Berlin, Germany, they are idiots. But then again, I wonder if they even realize that Berlin is in Germany and not in America. Probably not.
Vestas Wind Systems 1,700
Huge lie. First sentence in this story reports the layoffs to be 200 and not 1,700. Blatant lie there. It should be noted that this is a company from Denmark and not an American company. EDIT: I stand corrected on this as I found a quote from the article: The combined layoffs, plus some attrition and relocations, have reduced Vestas' Colorado workforce from 1,700 to 1,200 this year. So we can assume the total number of employees is 1,700 (the amount the email suggests was laid off) and that the numbers laid off amount to 500. http://www.denverpost.com/recommended/ci_21754574
Husqvarna - 390
This is a company based in Sweden, again absolutely no connection to Obama or the U.S. In fact, the majority of those affected are in Sweden or where their products are made in Poland: http://www.appliancemagazine.com/news.php?article=1626614&zone=0&first=1
Ericsson - 14,000
This is another funny one. Ericsson is a Swedish company (like Husqvarna) and those layoffs are in Sweden. They are not 14,000, they are 1,550. Pretty big difference: http://www.i4u.com/2012/11/sony-ericsson/ericsson-swedens-job-announces-cuts
SRA International - 222
Another blatant lie. These layoffs were planned, (like another one) on October 29, 2012. A full week before Obama was re-elected. Here is all the info to prove that: http://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2012/11/06/sra-international-to-lay-off-222-in.html
PerkinElmer - 75
This company is moving operations overseas to save money on having to pay Americans a livable wage. The governor of MA tried to talk them into keeping the jobs in America but the company refused to discuss it with them before making the decision to outsource their jobs: http://articles.courant.com/2012-01-18/business/hc-perkinelmer-layoffs-20120118_1_transfer-jobs-perkinelmer-global-stage
Majestic Star Casino and Hotel - 80
THIS is a company trying to destroy their union. Their workers are in a union and their contract ran out Oct. 31st. The company has made more money this year than they did last year but they are still cutting jobs despite making more money. A quote from the union representative: “These out-of-state owners who control billions are coming to Indiana and taking away our jobs,” said Coleman. It is also worth mentioning that these layoffs were announced on Nov. 6th before the election was officially over and anyone knew who won.
http://posttrib.suntimes.com/news/lake/16200678-418/layoffs-hit-garys-majestic-star.html
Center for Hospice NY - 80
TOTAL LIE: This company is renovating its current location and these layoffs will occur NEXT YEAR and they will be TEMPORARY according to the person in charge: http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20121106/CITYANDREGION/121109477/1002
Bristol-Myers - 500
Numbers are wrong. It's 470 and everyone agrees that this is the direct result of mismanagement under CEO Lamberto Andreotti...quote from the story: "nominee for worst chief executive of the year." http://www.fiercepharma.com/story/bristol-myers-slash-480-sales-related-jobs-nj/2012-11-06
Lower Bucks Hospital - 500
This is one of the biggest lies: THIRTY people were laid off. 30. Not 500. And the layoffs occurred on NOV.5, THE DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION. People who believe this stuff are idiots. Ironically, the CEO mentions in this article that they have 750 people on the payroll. Eliminating 500 of those seems kind of out of the question.
http://levittown.patch.com/articles/lower-bucks-hospital-lays-off-30-employees
Oce North America - 9
I couldn't find a single news article to back this up with any kind of facts at all. Enough said.
Corning United Blood Services Gulf - 150
Again, there is absolutely not a single news story to back this claim up anywhere. If it happened, there would be a press release. Right wing blogs are announcing this with NO reference or citation.
Atlantic Lottery Corporation - 16
This is a Canadian company and these layoffs were announced NOV. 5th, a DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labradostory/2012/11/05/nb-atlantic-lotto-layoffs.html
Welch Allyn - 10% of manufacturing work force
These layoffs were announce on September 10th, almost two full months before Obama was re-elected. These are going to take place over THE NEXT THREE YEARS in a restructuring effort: http://www.qmed.com/news/welch-allyn-initiates-global-restructuring-including-layoffs
Dana Holding - 12% of work force
This is a total lie as well. The company released a financial report on Oct. 29th, 2012 and only said they were considering layoffs with NO specific numbers mentioned. The only place I can find this is on rightwing blogs, again, with no citations or references to any specifics. The company's report on Oct. 29th announced NO layoffs. http://thurbersthoughts.blogspot.com/2012/10/dana-considering-layoffs-as-obamacare.html
Stryker - approx 5%
These were announced on June 25, 2012 and it's in response to trying to compensate for a new 2.3% tax on medical devices as part of the new health care act. I don't have to tell you how little 2.3% is and there is also no indiction that it would be 5% of it's employee force. The latest news says 'more than 100' positions would be laid off. http://www.massdevice.com/news/stryker-begin-new-york-layoffs-ahead-medical-device-tax-wall-street-beat
Boston Scientific - Unspecific (sic) amount
These were announced in AUGUST and were a direct result of a change in management and a new CEO. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/29/us-bostonscientific-layoffs-idUSBRE87S0Z120120829
Medtronic - 1,000
ANNOUNCED SEPTEMBER 6TH, 2012 as a result of the company restructuring plan. http://www.massdevice.com/news/layoffs-medtronic-cut-another-500-jobs-hopes-saving-125m-year
Smith & Nephew - 80
This company is based in LONDON and these job cuts in Memphis were announced in September. This is the only real story I could find about it: http://www.memphisdailynews.com/editorial/ArticleEmail.aspx?id=64753
Abbott Labs - 550
Announced on October 17th, about TWO SOLID WEEKS before Obama was re-elected. The facts hurt, I guess: Half of these workers being laid off are in EUROPE. Even though they are laying these people off, the overall amount of workers at Abbott Labs has grown due to additional acquisitions of other companies. Full story here: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/abbott-labs-cuts-550-jobs-more-layoffs-planned-2012-10-17
Covidien - 600
This is funny. The company denies any reports of layoffs in May of this year, no real news of layoffs since then: http://www.thesunchronicle.com/mansfield/covidien-denies-layoffs-report/article_a55f54db-b925-5b86-b246-136f2178e487.html?mode=story
Kinetic Concepts - 300
This was announced on JULY 13th, 2012 as part of restructuring after a $6.3 billion dollar buyout in 2011. http://www.massdevice.com/news/report-kinetic-concepts-lays-300-more
St. Jude - 300
This was announced NOV. 2, FOUR DAYS before Obama was re-elected. I wonder if Romney would have won if these lunatics would be blaming Romney for the job losses that occurred 4 days before anyone knew who was going to be the next president: It should also be noted that the company blames poor sales of defibrillators and pacemakers, not on the economy. http://www.startribune.com/business/176871351.html?refer=y
Hill Rom - 200
This is ANOTHER company where the right wing blogs continue to report a layoff in these numbers (200) where there is absolutely no real news source or citation for this. Repeating something over and over doesn't make it true. Just look at Fox: They said Romney would be elected for the past month 1,000 times. Didn't make it so. I would put a source but since there is no source for this, I will leave it alone
Darden Restaurants - 3%
This is the company that owns Red Lobster and the Olive Garden. All they are doing is cutting back hours so they aren't forced to cover employees' medical insurance. Typical big business: Just like Walmart: Wring your workers out for all you can get, work them JUST under the amount of hours where they would be provided some kind of health care security. Just a shitty company more than anything else but no reflection of the election at all but more of an attack on the new healthcare law.
JANCOA - 350
Utter lies. Jancoa is a janitorial outfit in Cincinnati, OH whose owner testified against the new health care law in congress. Funny that this reports she is laying off 350 workers when the owner herself REPORTS THAT THE ENTIRE COMPANY EMPLOYS 320 PEOPLE. Absolutely no layoffs reported anywhere from this company as of Nov. 9, 2012. Maybe it's republicans' wishful thinking? http://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2012/07/11/jancoa-ceo-mary-miller-testified-on.html

Jeopardy! recap for Tue., Jul. 4

Jeopardy! recap for Tue., Jul. 4 - Champ Jon led at every commercial break, and after Jacob took himself out of contention by missing both DDs in DJ, Jon finished well in a pop music category to put the game away with $19,600 going into FJ vs. $6,200 for Robert and $3,500 for Jacob.
DD1 - CASINO ROYALE - Gary, Indiana’s Majestic Star Casino has a royal view of this Great Lake (Jon won $600, picking the DD on the first selection as he did in the previous game and betting the same amount. He seemed a bit unprepared for it though, as he tried to ring in before responding and briefly forgot his phrasing.)
DD2 - LOOK AT THOSE CURVES - Most latitude & longitude lines curve on the gnomonic type of this, a way to map the round earth on a flat surface (Jacob lost $1,200)
DD3 - NEW WORDS... - The neurological condition prosopagnosia is often called this blindness for what isn’t recognized (Jacob lost $2,500)
FJ - CLASSIC CHILDREN'S LITERATURE - A 2016 biography of a children’s author is titled “In the Great Green Room”, a line from this classic book
Everyone missed FJ and Jon only dropped $400, winning with $19,200 for a three-day total of $64,300.
Triple Stumper of the day: Somehow, no one knew that a literary quote that included a reference to "Pip" came from "Great Expectations".
That's before our time: In "Red, White & Blue", the players couldn't identify legendary baseball announcer Red Barber. Later, they were also stumped on the recording star known in the early 60s for "I'm Sorry", Brenda Lee.
Correct Qs: DD1 - What is Michigan? DD2 - What is projection? DD3 - What is face blindness? FJ - What is "Goodnight Moon"?

http://levittown.patch.com/articles/lower-bucks-hospital-lays-off-30-employees
Oce North America - 9
I couldn't find a single news article to back this up with any kind of facts at all. Enough said.
Corning United Blood Services Gulf - 150
Again, there is absolutely not a single news story to back this claim up anywhere. If it happened, there would be a press release. Right wing blogs are announcing this with NO reference or citation.
Atlantic Lottery Corporation - 16
This is a Canadian company and these layoffs were announced NOV. 5th, a DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labradostory/2012/11/05/nb-atlantic-lotto-layoffs.html
Welch Allyn - 10% of manufacturing work force
These layoffs were announce on September 10th, almost two full months before Obama was re-elected. These are going to take place over THE NEXT THREE YEARS in a restructuring effort: http://www.qmed.com/news/welch-allyn-initiates-global-restructuring-including-layoffs
Dana Holding - 12% of work force
This is a total lie as well. The company released a financial report on Oct. 29th, 2012 and only said they were considering layoffs with NO specific numbers mentioned. The only place I can find this is on rightwing blogs, again, with no citations or references to any specifics. The company's report on Oct. 29th announced NO layoffs. http://thurbersthoughts.blogspot.com/2012/10/dana-considering-layoffs-as-obamacare.html
Stryker - approx 5%
These were announced on June 25, 2012 and it's in response to trying to compensate for a new 2.3% tax on medical devices as part of the new health care act. I don't have to tell you how little 2.3% is and there is also no indiction that it would be 5% of it's employee force. The latest news says 'more than 100' positions would be laid off. http://www.massdevice.com/news/stryker-begin-new-york-layoffs-ahead-medical-device-tax-wall-street-beat
Boston Scientific - Unspecific (sic) amount
These were announced in AUGUST and were a direct result of a change in management and a new CEO. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/29/us-bostonscientific-layoffs-idUSBRE87S0Z120120829
Medtronic - 1,000
ANNOUNCED SEPTEMBER 6TH, 2012 as a result of the company restructuring plan. http://www.massdevice.com/news/layoffs-medtronic-cut-another-500-jobs-hopes-saving-125m-year
Smith & Nephew - 80
This company is based in LONDON and these job cuts in Memphis were announced in September. This is the only real story I could find about it: http://www.memphisdailynews.com/editorial/ArticleEmail.aspx?id=64753
Abbott Labs - 550
Announced on October 17th, about TWO SOLID WEEKS before Obama was re-elected. The facts hurt, I guess: Half of these workers being laid off are in EUROPE. Even though they are laying these people off, the overall amount of workers at Abbott Labs has grown due to additional acquisitions of other companies. Full story here: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/abbott-labs-cuts-550-jobs-more-layoffs-planned-2012-10-17
Covidien - 600
This is funny. The company denies any reports of layoffs in May of this year, no real news of layoffs since then: http://www.thesunchronicle.com/mansfield/covidien-denies-layoffs-report/article_a55f54db-b925-5b86-b246-136f2178e487.html?mode=story
Kinetic Concepts - 300
This was announced on JULY 13th, 2012 as part of restructuring after a $6.3 billion dollar buyout in 2011. http://www.massdevice.com/news/report-kinetic-concepts-lays-300-more
St. Jude - 300
This was announced NOV. 2, FOUR DAYS before Obama was re-elected. I wonder if Romney would have won if these lunatics would be blaming Romney for the job losses that occurred 4 days before anyone knew who was going to be the next president: It should also be noted that the company blames poor sales of defibrillators and pacemakers, not on the economy. http://www.startribune.com/business/176871351.html?refer=y
Hill Rom - 200
This is ANOTHER company where the right wing blogs continue to report a layoff in these numbers (200) where there is absolutely no real news source or citation for this. Repeating something over and over doesn't make it true. Just look at Fox: They said Romney would be elected for the past month 1,000 times. Didn't make it so. I would put a source but since there is no source for this, I will leave it alone
Darden Restaurants - 3%
This is the company that owns Red Lobster and the Olive Garden. All they are doing is cutting back hours so they aren't forced to cover employees' medical insurance. Typical big business: Just like Walmart: Wring your workers out for all you can get, work them JUST under the amount of hours where they would be provided some kind of health care security. Just a shitty company more than anything else but no reflection of the election at all but more of an attack on the new healthcare law.
JANCOA - 350
Utter lies. Jancoa is a janitorial outfit in Cincinnati, OH whose owner testified against the new health care law in congress. Funny that this reports she is laying off 350 workers when the owner herself REPORTS THAT THE ENTIRE COMPANY EMPLOYS 320 PEOPLE. Absolutely no layoffs reported anywhere from this company as of Nov. 9, 2012. Maybe it's republicans' wishful thinking? http://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2012/07/11/jancoa-ceo-mary-miller-testified-on.html
