It’s a federal anchorage. The only person that can close it, is the Captain of the Port (USCG office in Milwaukee). As of today, there is no mention in the local notice to mariners.

Nothing a good keel hauling wouldn’t fix!

Buckwheat’s closing of the playpen is a gross over-reach. With everything else, she seems content to watch the numbers and adjust on a weekly or monthly basis. Here she assumes without any evidence that things are going to be hazardous for the entire boating season. Why the difference? Maybe all the Chicago boaters should move to Indiana, Wisconsin or Michigan. Who needs a slap in face like this?

Buckwheat will have NO authority over the playpen if it is designated as a State or Federal Waterway.

So, 56% of Illinois’ CV deaths come from the black communities, with another large percentage from the Latino communities.

Buckwheat’s solution? Punish all areas, especially those where infection is minimal. Because everyone has to suffer to the same extent, regardless of compliance with social distancing.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: She’s spending/sacrificing everyone else’s ‘privilege’ because the coronavirus disproportionately affects minority communities. When she says ‘we’re all in this together’ she really means that – she is sacrificing everyone else’s jobs, livelihood, business, home and savings to remedy the disproportionate affects of coronavirus. That’s the definition of communism, we’re all a collective, and she as leader gets decide how to spend the collective’s resources. What makes it worse is that study after study is showing that economic shutdown appears to have little effect on the spread of coronavirus. So not only… Read more »

“Do not hurt your neighbor, for it is not him you wrong but yourself.”…Shelby Steele

The mayor ought to stick her nose in one of the books, articles or lectures from Chicago’s own Shelby Steele. She could learn a lot from him. Look him up people, he’s got a broader & much more thoughtful outlook on race relations in this country than the race baiters who do get coverage. Doesn’t get much press as is his want, but when he speaks or writes you should at least listen.

Wow. I used to spend some time out there when I was younger. It was a lot of fun, and it’s no different than a block party, but on the water. Many boats stay separate and keep their distance, but just like the camaraderie of being in the same area. Music plays, and yes, there is one or two big parties a summer. It’s no different than many other regions with water, and far more tame. The reason the boaters congregate there is because the breaker walls keep the water on the “inside,” calm. It prevents your boat from rocking… Read more »

Reilly is nothing but a Lori lover and a Madigan errand boy. He is totally corrupt and shakes down every developer in town. He now is protected by Lori because he sold his soul to her because she is a machine hack. Lori was only elected because RINO Lausch the fake us attorney indicted Burke to effectively take out Preckwinkle, Daley and Mendoza paving the way for Lori. We can also thank the southwest side machine of Joyce and O’Shea for getting Lori elected as well. Loris is a machine hack elected by Rahm’s dishonest Chicago media.

I hate to say it but she is showing that she is racist. All Loris attacks are directed at white persons. 1). Golf closed, 2). Boating restrictions, 3). 3 predominantly white churches fined, 4). Refusal to charge and comment on 3 different black policemen who shot a white man and an autistic boy without provocation. She needs to be forced to resign.

Her spouse is white and also hates white people too. All progressives personally feel responsible for the white mans’ atrocities going back to Caesars invasion of Gaul.

Is this woman completely stupid?

Pritzker is is giving the slaves a little more freedom of movement and Queenie is tightening the plantation rules.

She is taking out her anger on rich privileged suburbanites with boats.

Chicago will pay dearly.
