The Ancient Order of Hibernians of St. Louis raised the profile of MO. Attorney Gen. Chris Koster, who was honored as “Civic Leader” of the year. The annual fete at the southside HQ of the Electrical Workers Union drew hundreds of police and firefighters, labor union chiefs and politicians who dined on a buffet and guzzled beer and wine to celebrate the occasion. Also honored were County firefighter Vincent Shramm, county police officer Sgt. Andrew Hale, labor leader Mike Mahler and city police officer Sgt. Joe Hill. The male-bonding conclave drew a few wearing t-shirts emblazoned with “Irish Lives Matter.”

On hand were: U.S. Attorney Eastern Dist. of Missouri Richard Callahan (now in his sixth year on that bench; MO Dept. of Public Safety’s chief, Jerry Lee; Frank Jacobs, business manager of IBEW; and honor guard consisting of Joe McGettigan, Josh Pogue and Jim Mohan.
ONWARD for dinner at Peppe’s Apt. 2, the cubicle-size restaurant on the horse-and- buggy street known as S. Geyer Rd. in Kirkwood where diners wear everything from Sam Cavato to the Rams jackets, and fashionable women who appear like they soaked themselves in a shower of Dial (that’s laid spelled backwards). There, real estate zoning lawyer John King and his wife, Gloria,  cornered Floyd Warmann.  Then, a feedbag of Peppe Profetta’s unbelievably caloric cream cannolis. Finally, passed the alleys where kids usually play. I knew i was in love with Pepe’s 2nd floor and the entire neighborhood.

    So the thug unions support Koster. Tell us something new. And why is it that every time Hilldabeest comes to town, she always speaks at union halls? Because she is just as crooked and sleazy! And shame on Judge Callahan for being amongst such sleeze!

  • Eagle says:

    As a Democrat, Mrs. Clinton often speaks at union halls since union members skew Democratic and historically have been valuable members of American society as well as the largest political party in the U.S.

    Mr. Trump, on the other hand, is like Bernie Sanders in that he also would like America to conform to his image of an idealized society. Mr. Sanders, the Socialist, wants to change America into Scandinavia. Mr. Trump, while nominally associated with the Republican party, is working hard to transform the United States into Nazi Germany. Heil, Drumpf!

    Eagle, Mr. Trump is an example of the now needed “tough love” it has to be done, will be done, or chaos will reign.

    Back 3/17

    Nothing like politicizing St. Patrick’s Day. Where is St. Patrick when we really need him to chase the snakes out of government?

    1. This morning on Meet the Press, candidate Trump said he doesn’t condone violence at his rallies. Thirty seconds later Trump indicated his people are moving to help the sucker punch guy who, by the way, also threatened–on camera–the black protestor’s life. I guess in your world “tough love” is what we in the civilized world call “fascism.”

    2. You say “‘tough love'” “has to be done…or chaos will reign.” Then how come the only campaign using “tough love” is the only campaign plagued by chaos?

    3. Criticism of Mr. Trump has cascaded in from around the globe. Republicans are fond of saying President Obama is ruining our country’s standing in the world. President Trump would put the country’s reputation in the toilet before he was even sworn in. Thankfully he loses every poll against Clinton and Sanders so at this point he’s kind of like eating at Chipotle–being exposed to him makes one want to throw up.

    This political; showdown is nothing more than a serious game of “king of the mountain”; I am duly sorry that you so desire a type of Government template of Clinton/Sanders…as i have said before, [WE] ain’t seen nothing yet, and you can interpret that any way you wish.

    Back date now 3/18 …until then…later

  • Eagle says:

    We “ain’t seen nothing yet.” Given the upturn of Trump-generated violence, I also predict that’s true. Just not in the way TC meant it.
