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.

As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million

Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.

Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.

Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.

Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”

“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.

“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.

Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.

Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.

Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:

While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.

Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.

However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.

Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.

“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.

Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
