  1. The United States Should Declare Civil War On Chicago and Kill Everything Evil That Moves. Spare The Children, Women and Animals only. Slaughter The Rest.

  2. This relates directly to the infrastructure bill. What sort of areas and cities have the most need for new infrastructure? What kind of areas take in the least taxes and economic growth? When people move away from ghetto crime ridden areas and you have less people "paying" often in controlled cost initiatives, the same aging infrastructure doesn't get cheaper to maintain just because you have less or perhaps more ratio of economically poor people needing to use it. In short the overly sized infrastructure bill with blank pages for allocation will mostly benefit mismanaged democrat cities. Basically another large scale welfare program that the taxpayers as a whole must repay eventually. Probably during a financial collapse a depression and under staggering inflation. Good intentions rarely yield good results when theyre poorly conceived.

  3. Proper Food, Education, and Health Care got absolutely nothing to do with innocent people being shot and killed. Because not having that doesn't make you a murderer. Mental illness is reflected in the gun violence either, because most mentally ill people ain't violent. This gun violence is the end result of a moral breakdown in families and neighborhoods, a collective acceptance of crime and violence being the norm, and a failure of parents to teach children the right value systems and to lead by example. The solution to all of this madness is leadership that leads by example, starting at home with parents being parents, that simple, that plain.

  4. You voted for Lori Lightfoot this is what you get what is she doing nothing that's what happens when you vote the Communist Democratic Party

  5. … ( JEREMIAH ) 15 : 6 .. THOU HAST FORSAKEN ME , SAITH THE LORD , THOU ART GONE BACKWARD: THEREFORE WILL I STRETCH OUT MY HAND AGAINST THEE , AND DESTROY THEE ; I AM WEARY WITH REPENTING . 7 .. AND I WILL FAN THEM WITH A FAN IN THE GATES OF THE LAND ; I WILL "BEREAVE THEM OF CHILDREN", I WILL DESTROY MY PEOPLE, SINCE THEY RETURN NOT FROM THEIR WAYS.

  6. No. Stay in Chicago and deal with the politicians you voted for. Don't move to red areas and ruin it for everyone.

  7. So sad, but you are not going to solve this problem with "free" food, medical care, and housing. As soon as they get those things they want a better car, big screen tv, etc. Bad people are just bad people and free stuff will not change that.

  8. People blame the black community for voting democrat. Chicago has a lot of Jewish democrats. Even though they are not the ones getting killed. They are part of the voting problem. Mayor Lootfoot was a very bad decision for a city this size.

  9. Releasing murders and other violent criminals from jail early will always bring a community to its knees!
