The voters. Zombies goosestepping to the polling places and voting for anything with a D beside it's name on a ballot created the Union/Democratic partnership which fed the Pension Tsunami. Very sad. In fairness, most Chicagoans didn't mean to destroy their children's future dreams but they just didn't pay attention.

Your assessment is correct. How ever the people living in the city on the south side have accelerated the decline of the south side of Chicago.

too many years with too many black woman on welfare too long , way too many black kids growing up no father in the house, leadership vacuum in the home , community.

The homicide rate on the south side of the city has been growing since the 80's. The black community just goes along, federal, state, county & city law enforcement does nothing no one cares.

Several thousand unsolved homicides on the south side and no protest???

Look at Detroit today that is the future of the south side of Chicago.

The Daleys and their cronies being given a license to rob the city blind for decades are who failed Chicago.

Couple that with the total decimation of once-thriving South and West sides of the city due to businesses fleeing the strong-arm unions and Cook County taxes, and you have Chicago, or Detroit West, same difference.

What failed Chicago was also what has hindered the country and state since late 80s. When Reagan was president he would talk with Dan Rostenkowski regularly and they'd work out what, of real importance, needed to get done. I know for a fact Dan was very pro U.S. Military, especially for the personnel & vets. But the Postal Stamp thing forced him out, and it's been Us/Them mentality that has taken over DC/ILL/Chicago. Rosty has to be rolling in his grave whenever Durbin speaks. In Chicago & Illinois, Madigans run the show. Bi- partisan now means do what I believe, because I'm not budging your way.

It was the democrat political machine as usual. That lying slug Obama, his mayor buddy Emmanuel, the Chicago mob, and Larry Sinclair for squealing about it all.
