For those who don't know, "Conrad" is this troll who follows me around, and despite the fact I'm a woman, calls me the above. He often says I have a huge member, as if men would find that insulting. He often makes racial slurs as well.
He changes names and proxy servers often, sometimes several times an hour. Just watch!:)

Since it crashed and burned, it will be repealed. It's Stalinism. Pure and simple. John Roberts got it SO WRONG.

I lived there 28 years and wasn't murdered.

Most of the murders in Chicago involve gang members and the remainder are largely domestic. Where innocent victims are involved they are usually folks in low income areas who get caught in crossfire. If one doesn't have the misfortune to live in a low income area, is not a gang member and does not have a relative with a grudge, the chance of being murdered in Chicago is not likely that different than elsewhere. Especially is one is white. Murder rates are higher largely because of gang crime.
