A repeat of a story: years ago there was a debate between Jessie Jackson and Orin Hatch on gun control—Jesse for it, Orin against it. Jesse ranted on about the need for gun control, but never stating the obvious. After a five minute rant, Orin said: “If we remove the killings performed by black males between the ages of 17 and 30, the US would have a lower murder rate than Switzerland.”

Jesse looked like a deer in the headlights...crickets...

Note the race and the causes. Why aren't other cities like this?

and yet, Apr 10, 2014, "“The City of Chicago is thrilled to take the second spot on TripAdvisor's Top U.S. Destination in their annual Traveler’s Choice Destination Awards." - Rahm Emmanuel press release

Rahm dreams of 55 million annual visitors to Chicago by 2020 - to a city that's shooting itself to death. Now that's what I call a reality-disconnect.

“If only there was a Community Organizer that could be sent to Chicago.”

Oh please, don’t let him back into Illinois. We have enough problems.

When I did a internet search for Gakirah Barnes, I stumbled across a website , Kollege Kidd.

What world do these people live in ?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Obama has EVER mentioned Chicago violence directly, or visited the Chicago ghettos, or talked to the victims there.

He’s been in power for freaking 5 1/2 years now, and not once does he show concern for his “hometown” or its people.

And not a peep from the cheerleading media either. Does anyone in Chicago notice this??

Chicago gangster rappers refer to Chicago as Chiraq, (it's not a homage to the former French politician Jacques Chirac ), but a mashup of Chicago and Iraq.

You would think Obunghole would want to visit his pal, Rahm Emanuel and say "Good job, Rahmie".

Just getting tuned-up; they’re a little ‘rusty’ from the winter layoff. Have faith. They’ll get their ‘groove’ back...

Yep - and that “spousal person” of his issues not a peep about it, instead choosing to blather on inanely about vegies and “Let’s Move”.

He is a fraud and does not care about people. There is something off about him.
