Reading the non-sympathetic republicunt comments on here gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. They are the best campaign tools Hillary and the dems could ever hope for, and I do mean TOOLS!!!!!!
Do the DEMOCRATS, or REPUBLICANS really have the interests of We the People at heart?
It is my opinion they are both working against us. Tain't for the chilldern.
If the police in a major United States city can not stop some of this senseless violence, what good are they. Maybe they are standing down, I do not pretend to understand it.

You can't reason with unreasonable people like Cat. They let FAUX news do all their thinking for them so when you ask them about their blatant contradictions, they just run back to their TV's and watch another hour of FAUX news to get the correct answers, which they never do.

Most policemen come from a long line of policemen and racism has been passed down to each one of them. I think they wish gangs would wipe one another out so they won't have to actually do their jobs. Rahm should fire the entire police department and start over again but he'll probably end up with the same type of people. These aren't usually the sharpest tools in the shed, if you know what I mean. Latest studies show a direct correlation between a lower intelligence quotient and racist beliefs.

The censorship of the IRS scandal by ABC, CBS and NBC has reached a new low. Not even the news of Lois Lerner’s retirement, the official at the center of the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal, could break the Big Three networks’ months-long streak of no scandal coverage.

The Drudge Report splashed the news on the top of its site on Monday but not a single network bothered to report the stunning news that night or Tuesday morning that Lerner, as the Washington Times reported,“retired from the agency Monday morning after an internal investigation found she was guilty of ‘neglect of duties’ and was going to call for her ouster, according to congressional staff.”

So you cry and whine that you want to stay on topic and then you start talking about Florida and then you start talking about drugs and now you want to compare Chicago to other cites!
HAHAHAHAAHAHAH!
So when we slap the snot out of you for making the stupidest statement on Topic on Sept.23, 2013, remember what I said: follow the thread!
HAHAHAAHAHAH!

Hey Sherlock; Do you even know how to use or interpret comparisons and/or analogies???

To top it off you can't even stick to the comparison of the public shooting drug wars of Chicago to Miami. You cite a drug problem in a different city and county. FOCUS

What, do you need everything spelled out and spoon fed to you letter by letter?

Perhaps you are right I shouldn't be comparing Chicago to Miami. We should be comparing Chicago to a third world country.

If you could stay on topic, shug, you wouldn't be getting responses off topic.

PS: Miami has higher incidence of gun violence than does Chicago.

I didn't say that.

I live in a neighborhood with the same type of limousine liberals that deny we are in a war with islam. They all have "armed response" alarm systems, but deny the rest of NY the same right.

In order for that façade to be maintained the media can't report the casualties every night like they did for Bush.

Lois lerner should be hanged.

Liberal hypocrisy knows no bounds.

The four arrested for the shootings in the park in Chicago last week all have extensive criminal records. Of course their mothers say they are good boys, just made a mistake. There is no way they could legally own a gun. There is no way they can be rehabilitated. They should spend the rest of their lives in prison
