    The only race of people, that have to offer up sacrifices, at every celebration they have. Regardless of the value of the celebration.

    This should come as a surprise to none but the most naive and willfully blind.

  • Tiger says:

    Chicago the Old West in it’s truest form and nobody in the WH for eight years has cared. Too bad that O and M and the itlets will be living in a 22,000 a month mansion with a huge wall and a security force around 24/7 should take a stroll at midnight down one of the inner city streets to see the America he helped make worse.

        Thank you John what a nice thing to say.

      The so-called “wild west” was NEVER as “wild” as is gun-controlled Chiraq.

      1. Tiger says:

        Sad but maybe there will be change with Law and Order along with drug and gun busts again. If B. Kennedy could clean out the mob then these brainless hoods can be taken down.

        1. Juanito Ibañez says:

          Unfortunately for the citizens of Chiraq, violence there since the first of the year is on pace to actually exceed last years numbers.

          1. Tiger says:

            I believe Emmanuel is gone when the Law and Order is back in town. He will also get his clock cleaned with his opposition to his Sanctuary City and his hugging of illegals. Read they are flooding into Chicago, love the name Chiraq sadly so true and California. Good easier to pick up.

  • justinwachin says:

    Well thank goodness Chicago has tough gun control laws. It’s hard to imagine how bad things would be if people could get their hands on guns.

    Seriously, Chicago’s murder rate shows the futility of gun control laws. The corrupt politicians of Chicago have fostered a climate where evil rules the day.

    Don’t you just love Chi Town. It has always been a town born in the basement of an outhouse and the proof is there every day!

    1. Climax says:

      The neat part of your statement is that a turd escaped the outhouse 8 years ago and we have had to put up with his stinch ever since. 48 hours to go!

      1. Tiger says:

        LOLOL and that Turd continues to stink up the air in America daily. Time to flush him down.

      2. Smitch says:

        Hopefully water is in the Turds future! Although it would pollute the body of water it’s in, the truth of the matter is it would be GONE!

  • David Stewart says:

    Need to donate fully autonatic weapons to Chi gangs; they aren’t killing each other off quickly enough!

    1. Climax says:

      That’s what you get with inbreeding, welfare dependent, lazy, ignorant, uneducated, African proud heritage young men with no future, no education, no purpose, and no life.
