This is a peculiar reference.
Typical weekend in Chitcago ....
Maybe “getting a hehr did” in the middle of the night is a common occurrence there. /s
Gun laws have little if any effect on crime statistics and probably increase them.
There is only one thing that drives crime stats; The available number of criminals.
Chicago has a higher per capita number of available criminals than Vermont where there are very few gun control laws.
Must be some serious hair if it takes overnight to get it “done”. Whatever that means. Gun free chit-cago just doin’ the celebratory thing.
Is that what we used to call a “duplex”?
Modern American writing is hard on an old man.
As long as they aren’t pretty white kids, the media does not care.
Very hard to get the NPR crowd to demand “gun control” when the shooter is just D’Shawn Jackson shooting at some other gang-banger.
As long as it doesn’t come to their part of town, they dont care.
I am baffled by “Yeah, no.” Which is it?!
Chicagistan sucks so bad.
Chicago Speak a “two-flat” is a duplex with on unit on top of the other. “Duplex would be two units side by side with common wall.
The fag Rahm will get right on it.
These folks live in Democrat strongholds where political corruption is the norm. No one is willing to have an honest discussion of the real causes of the violence and no one is willing to talk candidly about the effects of the welfare culture.
Sadly, the cancer that is Chicago is spreading to smaller towns all over the midwest as Chicago residents move out to find better welfare benefits and a better drug market.
Democrats teach young students that they are victims in a country with an awful history. The students grow older and more hateful as they age. The future is bleak. Sex is fun and quick they are taught. Babies are made. Governments handouts are issued. And the cycle is reproduced.
Could be an obscure reference to Pat Benatar?
Geez how many kids can a 21 yr old have......
“Two flat” is a colloquialism. “Four flat” and “Brownstone” are a couple of others peculiar to Chicago.
Two flats are stacked vertically. Four flats are a pair of tow flats joined together. It was a way of maximizing living space in small lots. Many of them were made from locally quarried brown limestone, hence Brownstone.
Back in the day one famlly would own the entire unit and use the other(s) for rental income. Another type was a two flat on the upper floor and the lower unit housed a retail business of some kind. Bars were very common.
Many of those still exist in the better neighborhoods of Chicago though most have been zoned out of existence.
Chicago is looking more and more like the gates of hell. Look at the evil that has come out of Chicago in the last few years.
The mentally ill sociopaths in government use our tax dollars to pay others to carry their arms, as their propagandists attempt to separate us from ours all the while coddling the lesser mentally ill sociopaths who help drive their agenda.
Where’s ARGUS? Where’s NSA? The socialist/criminal enclaves are off-limits?
Chicago needs stricter gun control laws for its criminals, gang bangers, druggies and mentally ill.
Busy monitoring the few republicans in Chicago and any veteran and Christian, who might be a threat to the Rat Syndicate.
A most excellent post!
Which perfectly demonstrates the racism of the liberal lamestream media. Too bad black's don't see through it.
This is being brought to you courtesy of the Democrats, LBJ and the “Great Society.” Thank you all.
More than 20 shot overnight across Chicago
