Chicagoland Chamber President rips into Stroger's sales tax hike: Callers debate who is the real terrorist in the Gaza Strip fight

Radio Chicagoland is broadcast live on the Internet at www.WCEV1450.c0m if you do not live in the six county Chicago region (more than 11 million residents). You can also get podcasts (for your iPod) and listen to selected past segments online at The show is broadcast every Tuesday and Thursday live on WCEV 1450 AM Radio from 4 to 6 PM:

Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce President Jerry Roper challenged the unnecessary and punitive increase in the sales tax by Cook County Board President John Stroger, and advised by Burton S. Odelson, Stroger's legal counsel. Roper called the tax unnecessary and noted that it would raise far more funds than Stroger asserts is needed to cover an alleged shortfall in the county budget.

Callers to WCEV 1450 AM Radio participated in an energetic discussion about the war taking place between Israel and Hamas, debating who is the real terrorists, Hamas, which fires Qassem rockets indiscriminately into Israel or Israel, which fires indiscriminately at Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip as a part of their policy of collective punishment. One Israeli civilian, a little girl, was killed in the Hamas terrorist attack and more than 70 Palestinians, mostly children and civilians, were killed by Israel's repressive and excessive military response. Who's the terrorist? Call in to the next radio show Thursday to continue the discussion.

Joe Boyle, News editor of the Southwest News-Herald discussed billionaire Same Zell's proposal to sell the naming rights to Wrigley Field. And The Chicago Tribune's Ray Long provides an overview of the Tony Rezko trial in Chicago and the impact on Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
