    Chicago War Zone

    This is short and to the point. If any of you can, send it to your
    National Legislators and Media.



    Chicago War Zone Information


    Body count: in the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago;
    221killed in Iraq.


    Senators Barack Obama and Dick Durbin; Representative Jesse Jackson Jr.;
    Governor Rod Blogojevich; House leader Mike Madigan; Attorney General.
    Lisa Madigan; Mayor Richard Daley... The leadership in Illinois and
    Chicago...all Democrats.



    Thank you, all of you, for the chaos and the combat zone in Chicago.



    Of course they're all blaming each other. Can't blame Republicans; there
    aren't any!

    State pension fund :$44 Billion in debt, worst in country.


    Cook County (Chicago) sales tax: 10.25% highest in the country.


    Chicago school system: one of the worst in country.



    So this is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois, and he's
    gonna 'fix' Washington politics??

    Then that goes for the rest of the country. Every major city has problems regardless if it's mostly Democrats or Republicans.
    As far as the body count, that's a different story. Those men in Iraq were sent there by a government who declared war. In Chicago, those are American citizens taking it upon themselves to be act in a criminal manner.

    Hey that made me think of something I saw on a special the other night (getting of topic a bit)
    about why they started not allowing liquids on planes. It was because of the plan hatched in Britain (i believe) where they were going to blow up planes.
    And One of the guys masterminding it I think helped with the 911 plans. Don't quote me.

    The fact is that part of Chicago has the highest crime rate in the country. They threw mega amount of money at it and still it has done no good. DUH

    Throwing money at problems is the only thing Obama understands.

    .

    Fact:The more money the Robbin' Hoods in D.C. steal from us,and distribute to their pet projects, the worse those pet projects get! Think school system,safety nets,housing industry,etc.,etc. ad infinitum! The Democrats are master distributors.A lot of Republicans are in the process of trying to catch up.
    Thanks for this post,janelle. It's an eye-opener!

    Of course not. I don't think anyone said it was. I thought this post was about Chicago's crime, etc...being compared the number killed in Iraq and I said it was apples and oranges. Two situations that can't be compared because the circumstances are entirely different.

    Chicago - a bunch of idiots that kill each other specifically as a crime

    Iraq - men fighting for our country, sent by the government. Not there just to kill.

    How does that remotely imply anything about Saddam???
