Still can’t believe all this is happening in my old hometown. I was actually a southwest suburban kid but spent a lot of time in the city and the majority the places these senseless shootings are occurring were nice, quiet, middle-class neighborhoods back then.
This is what happens when the Gubmint tries to "deconcentrate poverty" by buying up houses and using them for Section 8 rentals. I know how you feel. I grew up in a very nice area in my hometown, solidly middle class. The city bought up a bunch of houses and used them for Section 8 rentals when they closed a couple of the housing projects downtown, and all the crime and violence moved in with them. The street where I used to live has turned into the hood, there are shootings and robberies almost every day now. I don't even drive through that section of town anymore, because it's too dangerous. Very sad.
Looks-like THE [D]PROGS are in full control! Only their CRIMMINAL-O'BUDDIES HAVE GUNZ!!

Definitely a step in the right direction. Even some liberal states appear to be fed up with all this far left over reach

We need more fearless politicians like this guy. Most Republicans are cowering somewhere in a corner, scared to death that someone from the left or in the media will call them a racist.

I’m not sure what’s funnier in this article, the fact that someone actually believes Obama has done “reasonably well” in his second term, or the fact that some people still actually refer to Powell as a Republican.

How come the white students protesting Dr. Carson aren’t being accused of being racists? Isn’t that the left’s automatic response every time a group of white people disagree with President Obama?

This is what happens when laws are passed but not read!
I agree. "We need to pass this bill so that YOU can find out what is in it."
Well, it is not going to nearly as great as Nancy thought: Surprise!!

From the White House and the halls of Congress, all the way down to the small town mayor’s offices, the number one priority always seems to be to find more and more ways to take money away from the Average Joe on the street struggling to make ends meet.

If John McCain attacked the opposition half as hard as he does his own party, we might be calling him Mr. President right now instead of traitor.

So do you think the Democrats will denounce this group as “dangerous” the same way they do the Tea Party?
All the "cute" little Pee Cee things that "some people" such as Al $harpton, Je$$ie Jack$on, the genius Hank Johnson, Shiela Jackson Lee, and the rest of the CBC rant about will not be changed by demonizing a word or removing it from the dictionary. They keep changing the nomenclature with which they want to be identified. In my lifetime, it has gone from from "Colored" to "Black" to "African-American. But they can prefer the names "Buicks" or "Jeeps" to refer to themselves and the meaning of the banned word or words will still be clear until they stop seeking a separate identity, standards, mores, and morals from the rest of society. When they all work towards being AMERICANS, all racism will dissapear.
But with the happenings like Chicago and the Iowa State Fair, it looks as if they are working hard to preserve every bad name that was ever spoken.

I used to shop at this mall all the time when I was a teenager growing up in the Chicago suburbs. It was no more than a 20 minute drive from my house and in a really nice neighborhood right at the edge of the city’s westside border with the southwest suburbs. Our parents would drop us off on a Saturday morning and we would spend most of the day there. Never any trouble, never anything to be afraid of. We’d hang in the mall for a while, then catch a movie or do a little bowling, grab some lunch, then call our parents to come pick us back up. I don’t know what that once great city is turning into, but I’m sure glad I don’t live there anymore!

This is the price you pay for worrying about being too politically correct.
This won’t be an issue much longer. Pretty soon EVERYTHING will belong to the government and people will have no private property to try to defend.

Liberal politicians are vote whores. If they smell a big enough voting block in it, they’ll support it.
January 13, 2013 at 6:04pm
The problem with your point, small world, is the Libs can’t build up a new voting block with that philosophy.

Eliminate term limits for the president my (fill-in-the-blank)! We need to put term limits on congress as well. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

COFemale. Couldn’t agree more. I wasn’t thrilled with Romney either but I felt this election was far too important to sit out. I even held my nose and voted for liberal-light McCain in 2008 (although I must admit I felt like I had prostituted myself when I left the voting booth). But in the same token, I don’t know that I can blame the Tea Party for sitting out elections either when the party they are trying to support continually snubs their noses at them.

Divided and angry? More like dazed and confused if you ask me. Everyone last one of them want to run under the “conservative” banner for the sake of securing the votes of the parties’ base, then they work as hard as they can, as fast as they can, to distance themselves from that same philosophy that got them elected. The Conservative Tea Party literally handed the Republicans a monumental victory in both state and federal races in 2010 and the Beltway Republicans thanked them by bashing them every change they got. Then they wonder why many of them stayed home in 2012? When is the last time you heard a Democrat accuse another Democrat, or any group that supports Democrats, for that fact, of being too liberal?
it's the LOVE for one another that scares them,,,
sometimes it takes 'bondage' to appreciate 'freedom'

Strict conditions? The last time I was on unemployment for a brief period of time after being laid off several years ago all I had to do was call a phone number on Sunday night and push a coupe of buttons to “verify” I was “looking for and available for work.” Not exactly what I considered overboard monitoring. And from what I’ve heard it hasn’t gotten any tougher since then.

Makes about as much sense as anything else that comes out of this administration.
January 2, 2013 at 8:57pm
Read the bill? Who has time to read the bill? Isn’t that how this total mess we now have called Obama Care got passed?
