Who needs jobs when the Olympics are coming and will solve all of Chicago's problems!
See when you say things like: "Construction of the store would create200 jobs. The store, once it was running, would provide nearly 500jobs" you're totally missing the point of Chicago and the City Council. The point isn't to create jobs for Chicagoans today because we're talking about hundreds of jobs for Walsh Construction in 2013. See, building a Wal-Mart in Chicago makes too much sense, but of course it will piss off rich, liberal whites who the city needs more than anything else in the world... other than the Olympics of course.
So you're barking up the wrong tree. We don't need Wal-Mart, we need the Olympics. Because it will solve everything. And it won't cost a dime.
