Chicago?

Feb 14th 2013 new
Below is an interesting view on Chicago. What do you think?


-Elizabeth


Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
Body count: In the last 12 months 500 killed (murdered) in Chicago. 221 killed in Afganistan AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US. President: Barack Hussein Obama Senator: Dick Durbin House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. Governor: Pat Quinn House leader: Mike Madigan Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) Mayor: Rahm Emanuel The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago . Of course, they're all blaming each other. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! Cook County (Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us??? George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison. Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajogevitch who is...that's right, also in prison. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned 11 / 21 / 2012. That is because he is fighting being sent to... that's right, prison.

Being born and raised in Chicago I can honestly say, its no different now then when I lived there 54 years ago. Maybe a bit worse.

Thanks, for the heads-up. surprised I will make it a point to never, ever move to Chicago. I'm pretty disgusted with my blue state (CT) too.

I just put it out there for discussion, Nilda. I've only driven through Chicago. The worse thing I know about it is Obama came from there. However, a friend of mine put the list together I listed. Certainly looks like Obama is a product of his environment.

Yup. He definitely is. He's like the opposite of Midas -- one touch, and poof mayhem.

Excellent post, LizBeth.


Instead of pulling out, how about we invade Chicago, Madison, WI, and San Francisco and claim them for the USA!

That is an excellent piece, Elizabeth. It should get more publicity because it is a perfect example of what happens
when Democrats run the Government. Today Illinios, tomorrow the USA.
