There’s something about Chicago....trying to remember...
Hot town, summer in the city....
We had a lengthy conversation yesterday about this subject. Liberals are primarily responsible.
White Sox are playing .500 ball for the first time since mid-April?
Photo taken at Alinsky Park, most likely.
At least Detroit Mayor (and former Pistons all-star) Dave Bing is honest and is working to improve his city. Chicago's mayor is one of the country's most dishonest politicians and hiring a puppet like “Charley” McCarthy as police superintendent certainly doesn't help.
Where’s a good bunch of Decepticons when you need them???
Prayers form him and his family
Anyone who chains a dog should not be allowed to own a dog.
Dave Bing is an old School democrat and self made man. In fact he was awarded some type of minority entrepreneur award by Ronald Reagan.
Back in his NBA days they didn’t make big bucks. I think the highest paid year of his career he only made some $27,000. When a Detroit bank turned him down for a loan, he didn’t run to the NAACP, he went to work for the bank and earned the money.
Here’s another where someone was shot in the head
Police late Tuesday searched for a gunman who shot a man in the head while stopped in traffic in the Humboldt Park neighborhood. The wounded man was a passenger in a vehicle stopped at a red light at the intersection of Grand and Sacramento avenues just before 6 a.m., police said.
Prayers for the child and his loved ones.
Prayers up for him and his family.
Ah, the Deep Blue Cesspool City of Chicago... another gun control success! I’ve lived in my town for 26 years. Gun ownership above 70%. Not one single such shooting. Gee.
