Obama Expressway Bill Daley

A proposal to rename Chicago’s Ryan Expressway the Obama Expressway is being met with criticism from the family of the expressway’s namesake.

Chicago mayoral hopeful Bill Daley, the son and brother of two Chicago mayors, proposed renaming the city’s Dan Ryan Expressway after the 44th president as part of his campaign, and local news reports the proposal was immediately met with criticism from the Ryan family.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Ryan Expressway was named after the former Cook County board president Dan Ryan, who spearheaded the construction of the expressway. The former board president was a close ally of Daley’s father, former Mayor Richard J. Daley.

When Ryan passed away before the expressway he helped champion was finished, the elder Daley suggested naming the expressway after his long time political ally, and the suggestion was approved.

Now, 56 years later, the junior Daley proposes renaming the expressway to honor former President Barack Obama.

After hearing about Bill Daley’s proposal to rename the expressway his grandfather helped create, Dan Ryan III told local media the decision was met with “shock” and that he was “hurt” Daley did not contact his family.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported:

So it came as a “shock and disappointment” to Daniel B. Ryan III on Friday when Bill Daley — the son of Chicago’s legendary boss — proposed removing his grandfather’s name from the highway after 56 years and renaming it in honor of former President Barack Obama.

“I’m hurt. I feel bad that he didn’t try and contact us to see what we would think,” Ryan III said. “We feel very honored to have this named after our grandfather. Why would you take an honor away from one man to honor another?”

Big League Politics attempted to contact the Daley campaign to ask whether it was aware of the connection between the families, or whether it had any plans to alter the proposal to rename the highway after former President Obama, and did not immediately receive a response.

Shameless.

Published

on

Democrats in the state of Washington are now seeking to institute a statewide LGBT-focused sex ed program that would be taught to students ranging from kindergarten to high school.

House Bill 2184 would institute “comprehensive sexual health education” in Washington’s public schools by the year 2022.

A parental watchdog group in the state is raising the alarm, calling out the progressive legislation for its marketing of adult sexuality to children.

Another post from the Informed Parents of Washington revealed some of the sexually explicit content the sex ed program has lined up for sixth graders.

A program of sex ed that is taught to kindergarteners may be unprecedented in national American public education, especially considering it’s slated to include morally controversial topics such as homosexuality.

A survey by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction revealed that Washington parents are overwhelmingly opposed to the notion of teaching sex ed to kids as young as kindergarteners. More than 10,000 responses have been recorded, and over 58% of Washingtonians are opposed to the notion of youth sex ed.

But the state’s Democratic government is fine with simply ignoring the will of parents with children in public schools, plowing ahead with the sex ed program regardless of public sentiment.

A Republican legislator, Michelle Cardier, described the program’s content as “completely inappropriate” in a radio interview. “I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say [at the state house], I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”

97 people have signed up to testify at the Washington House of Representatives in regards to the controversial sex ed, proposal, but only 16 are being allowed to because of time restraints.
