Bob Giloth: Chicago Bullying
Standing in the Belltown Labor Temple in early June at a mayoral candidate forum, Seattle City Council member Jan Drago used the "c" word. The incumbent's style... was "the Chicago way." The "Chicago" epithet has been dogging Mayor Greg Nickels almost since the day he took office. A 2006 story claimed Nickels had "belied his big-softy reputation by instituting a regime of Chicago-style hardball politics that has left a timid city council cowed."
Oddly, Nickels and the current Daley do share another likeness -- being tagged as two of the leading mayors for climate change and green cities. Think of that!
Cattlemen’s Capitol Concerns: [Climate fraud could force farmers and ranchers out of business]
Jim Magagna, Executive Vice President, Wyoming Stock Growers Association testified on behalf of producers.

Magagna talked about the negative impacts that H.R. 2454 (the "Climate Change Bill") would have on America's farmers and ranchers. Specifically, Magagna expressed concerns about the bill's effect on energy costs. Considering the fact that approximately 45% of agriculture production costs are energy related, these increased costs could push many operations over the edge, forcing ranchers to sell off their land to developers.

"There is nothing green about a rural sub-division as compared to livestock roaming the range," Magagna said.
