Yeah, well it's gotten so bad I'm reluctant to even go into the city. People get shot on the L-trains all the time now. Accidental deaths occur from stray bullets nearly everywhere, including downtown. It's reported in the news every week. There are fun night spots I'm tempted to visit on the city's North side. But it's a long ride and increasingly dangerous. Why bother?

Soweto (SouthWestTownships). Don't go there no matter what flavor you are. It is Chicago twenty years in the future.


I will never go to Chi-Town again.

Hopefully, The "accident" happened before either one had procreated. One for a Dirt Nap, and one to the Gray Bar Hotel until he is 80 or room temperature which ever comes first.

Viva Maduro! The Chicago Teachers Union's Solidarity Trip To Venezuela

Authored by Mark Glennon via WirePoints.org,
Surely this must be a parody, I thought when I first saw a story on it. A reader here sent me a link to something called FightBack!News. But I read it twice and plenty of other sources confirm it: The Chicago Teachers union has a delegation in Venezuela to show their solidarity with Nicolás Maduro’s socialist regime.

Source: FightBackNews.

Their goals are “to learn what they could from Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution, exchange views on effective education and to show solidarity with the students, teachers and social movements of Venezuela,” says the story.

Delegation members are personally sharing their wonderment at Venezuelan socialism on a blog called “Radical Educator Collective.” The communes they visited particularly impressed them.
They quoted a Venezuelan official saying communes make society less individualistic since groups of people are working together to decide their needs and how to work collectively towards solutions.
“This is why Venezuela became a threat to the USA," wrote delegation member Sarah Chambers.
“The USA does not want people to realize that another world is possible with justice and love.”
Chambers also wrote on Twitter that the delegation hadn’t seen a single homeless person during their trip. No mention that housing might be plentiful because over three million people have fled – about 10% of the population.
Among the wisdom they’ve acquired, according to the article, is that 75% of Venezuela’s budget goes to social programs. “What country in the world does that?” asked delegate Valeria Vargas.
“In the USA, 50% of our budget goes to war.”
She’s a math teacher, the article says, but maybe we should give her a break because 50% kinda sounds like the real number, which is 15%.
What about Venezuela’s rampant hunger, disease, childhood mortality, crime and despair that have filled headlines in recent years? Well, yes, there are “issues,” says the blog, but they all stem from American sanctions and meddling.
“The mainstream news is right that there are some issues in Venezuela, but where they are wrong is who has created those issues,” it says.​
What about how human rights organizations across the globe, from all political perspectives, have hammered the regime for its extrajudicial executions, attacks on journalists, harassment of human rights activists, horrible prisons, rampant corruption and more? No mention of that.
The CTU’s fondness for the Maduro regime clearly goes beyond the delegation members. This spring, the CTU Executive Board and House of Delegates each unanimously passed a resolutionopposing “the invasion of Venezuela” and criticizing the United States and its allies for harassing the regime.
That delegate mentioned earlier, Sarah Chambers, is a CTU Executive Board Member. In 2017, the school district fired her for, as reported by WTTW,
“leaving her own classroom to barge into classrooms of other teachers and issue her own instructions to students, interfering with statewide tests, and participating in a scheme to remove and transport students without any chaperone who had cleared criminal background checks, without alerting school officials which students would be missing from class and which students were unaccounted for….”
However, she claimed she was fired in retaliation for other matters and the CTU got her reinstated, the union says.

Wouldn’t you like to see the comps for teachers in Venezuela?
Illinoisans outside of Chicago may laugh at all this, but they should know they’re helping pay for it. State taxpayers contributed $239 million to the Chicago teachers pension last year under the bailout legislation passed a couple years ago.
They’re in contract negotiations now, demanding more and threatening to strike.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if the delegates asked their teacher counterparts in Venezuela how their salaries and pensions compare to theirs in America? In Chicago, their average final salary is $98,000 and average annual pension after 30 years of service is $70,000. Not bad for about 165 days of work per year in a district that pays even the employee’s pension contribution.
The irony here is that the CTU’s extreme politics are matched by the extreme simplicity of how Illinois could not only bury the CTU but solve all the school district’s financial and pension problems. Just reconstitute it, which we’ve explained before. Start a new school district, take only the good teachers and assets from the old. Go forward with a new retirement plan that’s affordable, giving the district a fresh start, and keep CTU types the hell away from the kids.
But that would require legislation from Springfield where, as with so much else, there’s no political will to fix anything.

Kinda makes these "mass shootings" seem tame.

The majority of Chicago homicides are the result of gun violence.
Shot (314)
Unknown (209)
Stabbing (19)
Other (5)

209 Unknown?

No one wants to find out?

Chicago: Nonwhite Crime Disaster Shuts Down Hospital After Mass Murder Weekend
New Observer, August 6, 2019

According to local reports, Chicago’s Mount Sinai Hospital temporarily stopped accepting patients Sunday morning because they were at capacity following a series of shootings.
Chicago Police Public Information Officer Anthony Guglielmi told media that that officers responded to several multi-victim shooting incidents on the “west side of Chicago stemming from gang conflict.”
The west side of Chicago has been completely overrun by masses of black, Hispanic and Puerto Rican gangs, who engage in a bustling criminal lifestyle including drugs, prostitution, theft and so on.
{snip}
Current Chicago mayor, Lori Lightfoot—the first black lesbian to hold such an office—told media that the city’s West Side is in “desperate need of resources. It’s shameful and I can’t say the things that I saw on Saturday are things that I have even the capacity to process yet,” she said.
However, Lightfoot then immediately went on to contradict herself, saying that “We’ve spent over the years probably hundreds of millions of dollars policing on the West Side, CPD, federal and state law enforcement and we have barely moved the needle.”

congo don't have a crime problem........ it's got a nig problem.

Sorry not judging them by the color of their skin, just by their actions & the content of their character.
It's easier if you think of them as they act, like animals with no self control, not civilized humans.

The very essence of Democratic rule summed up in one short paragraph!!

No need to apologize for commenting on the behavior of animals! They earned every bit of it by their actions. Their skin color is irrelevant to their behavior.

https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/2...are-out-of-school-and-jobless-new-report-says

About 45% of black men in Chicago age 20-24 were neither working nor in school in 2017, the analysis found.

Nearly 20% of Latino men in that age group were out of work and not in school.

Taking into account women, 37% of Chicago’s young black adults don’t have a job and aren’t attending school, according to the analysis.

5.7% of white young adults age 20-24 are out of school and out of work.

it's a preferred lifestyle that features a radically different value system that is foreign to the posters on this board

education = worthless

cruel = brave

steal = win

many baby mamas = kang

job = sellout, chump

free shit = victory

lebron = god

There is a basic koan here:

The Supreme Court can pontificate in the clouds of purity (and political bent). The Supreme Court can pronounce what, exactly, is the Law Of The Land.

After all is said and done--

If the ARMED portion of the citizenry of the United States finds that the Supreme Court has ignored the Constitution, the Supreme Court will find itself ignored by the citizenry it was supposed to be serving.
