    Looks like those chickens have come home to roost and I do not hear Rev. Wright speaking out to these neighborhoods ..he is too busy preaching about how he hates America to try and clean up his own back yard. The good people of Chicago need to rise up and demand swift action before another innocent child is gunned down in their bed or at their kool-aid stand.

    High unemployment, People cannot defend themselves. The criminals carry guns. A recipe for disaster.

    It's already worse than Detroit.

    If only they could go back to the good old days when Capone ran the city.

    Soft on crime. Anti self defense. Welfare dependency.

    While geography favours Chicago as a commercial hub, many businesses are still leaving because of City and state anti business policies and high taxes.

    Businesses that remain are reducing their size and workforce in the city, prefering to expand elsewhere including the suburbs in Illinois or Indiana, if they need to remain in the area.

    You forgot to mention the nanny state school system that is horrendous. Computers don't last long. They get vandalized. Teachers disrespected and worse, etc.

    You are right on all points. I was just trying to keep it short since those who most need to understand seem to have limited attention spans.

    "After weeks of media reports about Chicago homicides — which so far are up nearly 38 percent from last year — Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy defiantly said during a news conference that the gang strategies in place before McCarthy arrived were the ones that failed, not the new ones."

    Sound familiar????

    Create fear then use fear to destroy freedom. It worked in 1917 Russia and 1939 Germant. It might work in Chicago and the US.

    Not the whole US - yet.
    And there are some otherwise law abiding citizens in Chicago who put more faith in Smith & Wesson than Rahm Emanuel or the police to protect their families.

    Dettroit's demise was because their economy wasn't very diverse. So, when the auto industry collapsed, so did Detroit. Add to that the numbers of thugs running the streets and you have the formula for the exodus from the entire Detroit region. Chicago is much more diverse and if one industry suffers there are many others to pick up the slack. The thugs are pretty centralized and so much of Chicago and the surrounding region is insulated from them for the most part!

    Oh no you're mistaken, gun control works very well. Can't you see w/o it the crime rate would really be bad. Liberals can't see how real world reasoning works cause they're to indoctrinated in Liberalism. You can show stats that show where people are free to own guns the crime rate goes down and they'll credit it w/ something else. They refuse to believe that their eutopian ideas can't& don't work.

    It's well along the way.

    If I were to be holding some sort of major convention/meeting in Chicago City, I'd be looking for another locale.
