Speak Out for Nov. 2, 2014

Hey, waffle mom: Good for you making your family breakfast. My mom also cooked breakfast for all 12 of us. She literally was in our kitchen for eight hours every Sunday. I think that person who commented negatively didn’t have the love we have in …

Speak Out for Oct. 31, 2014

A high-five to Costco for being closed on Thanksgiving Day. They’re absolutely correct in saying that their employees deserve to enjoy the holiday. No one has to shop on Thanksgiving. Please understand that the Republican party is all talk. They said they would come up …

Speak Out for Oct. 29, 2014

Look, 183rd and Oak Park is the perfect place to try out (underline try out) a traffic circle. Lots of room and no traffic light for a half-mile, contrary to what someone else said in Speak Out. I’m not in favor of it, but let’s …

Speak Out for Oct. 28, 2014

Tinley Park does not belong in the real estate business. Look what happened in Oak Forest, which did the same. Bring on term limits. James P. from Tinley Park Adele: The reason (Jay) Cutler gets paid so much money is very simple. The Bears like …

Speak Out for Oct. 27, 2014

Why did the Bears give Cutler a seven-year, $126.7 million contract? Adele I wonder if Bruce Rauner would swear under oath that he didn’t tell the head of a major local union that if they weren’t with him, he would “bury” them? Interesting turn of …

Speak Out for Oct. 26, 2014

Everyone wants to know what will become of the land from the Tinley Park Mental Health Center. Only Mike Madigan and Ed Zabrocki know for sure. It will certainly wind up in the hands of the friends of Pat Quinn, Mike Madigan or John Cullerton, …

Speak Out for Oct. 24, 2014

Kudos to Brian Urlacher, who said Jay Cutler is an elite quarterback in pay only. Rick from Evergreen Park It is hard to believe that someone is blaming the Democrats for the historically high wealth gap that exists today between the top 1 percent and …

Speak Out for Oct. 23, 2014

Have you noticed when President Obama’s leadership rating fell to a new low? You don’t see Michelle and their children by his side voting like before. Scotty and Tony from Oak Lawn I see that someone thinks we should be celebrating Obamacare because it does …

Speak Out for Oct. 22, 2014

I’d like to thank President Obama for endorsing Pat Quinn for governor here in the bankrupt state of Illinois. Now, with a clear conscience, I truly believe that Bruce Rauner is without a doubt the correct choice for Illinois governor. Don from Orland Park I …

Speak Out for Oct. 21, 2014

Isn’t it ironic that the sports commentators, e.g., 670 The Score, can critique what is wrong with the Bears game plan and determine what needs to be corrected, but the coaching staff responsible for the performance cannot. Terry in Mount Greenwood In addition to all …

Speak Out for Oct. 20, 2014

I just want to remind everyone that John Boehner promised, but has yet to come up with, a replacement for Obamacare. Why? He doesn’t have a better plan, that is why. Remember that the next time the House takes a vacation. Suppose you have an …

Speak Out for Oct. 19, 2014

Each new mobile device comes out and it’s thinner and thinner. My phone from four years ago wasn’t too thick. It would be nice if the new phone was the same thickness as my old phone but had a three-day battery life. Rick from Evergreen …

Speak Out for Oct. 17, 2014

How is it everyone complains of the president overstepping his boundaries and stomping on the Constitution anytime he does something? And now the same people want him to stop all flights to the U.S. from Africa? Do they also know there’s other ways of getting …

Speak Out for Oct. 16, 2014

I see that the CEO of Facebook will donate $25 million for the Ebola crisis. How much is going to fat-cat executives, and how much for research and health care? I agree that the U.S. has to stop all incoming flights from these countries battling …

Speak Out for Oct. 15, 2014

How can “one-horse towns” like St. Louis, Detroit, New Orleans and Atlanta have nice indoor stadiums and we have the “Mistake on the Lake?” Ineptitude, it seems, is a market our civic powers have cornered. Regarding the comment on the data breach at Jimmy John’s …
