    Chicago

    Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
    Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago.
    221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.


    PRESIDENT: Barack Hussein Obama

    Senator: #$%$ 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 the big house. Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is...that's right, also in the big house. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.

    The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.

    But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Headline: "2012 Chicago homicides up 15% vs. 2011"

      "Chicago this week ended 2012 with 513 homicides, a 15 percent increase from 448 homicides in 2011, RedEye determined based on data from the Medical Examiner's Office and police.

      The police department announced Tuesday it ended the year with 506 homicides.

      Unlike the police department, RedEye organizes homicides based on the date the incident occurred, not the date the victim died. RedEye also includes fatal shootings where charges may not have been brought against the shooter because the shooting was an accident or in self-defense.

      Both the police and RedEye do not count in their totals fatal shootings by police officers and DUI incidents that result in homicide charges."
