We all this is a setup for the national guard to come in and for Obama to suspend the constitution.

Add in Iran’s nuclear intentions and Israel doing something, as well as more bad economic news from around the globe, and a media that will blame Republicans and we have the perfect storm.

Here’s why police and the FBI don’t have time to deal with daily murders in Chicago. They’re too busy doing their damnest to catch a conservative ‘hate criming’ a lesbian. It was fake, but who knows, maybe next time they’ll catch the elusive white middle class, middle aged ‘hater’... This time? The usual. The liberal faked the crime. All a lie... How many have died in Chicago?

Police say lesbian faked brutal ‘hate crime’ attack: carved cross on own chest
Thursday, August 23, 2012 10:32:40 PM · 40 of 40

FBI pathologist Michelle Elieff, who had been called in to investigate the presumed hate crime, wrote in the arrest warrant that the wounds were self-inflicted or caused by permission. “The FBI, the Bureau of Fire Prevention and the Lincoln Police Department have spent an exorbitant amount of time and personnel resources investigating this,” Peschong said.

No, but as someone who commutes into that hell-hole every monday - friday (and occasionally saturday's..) this story illustrates perfectly why I illegally conceal/carry when I go to work every day.

Nope. Been to Boston a bunch of times, however that was in the heart of the City, I think it was the “Post office square” area which I thought was quite nice. (That was 1995 - 1997)

No, I did not. I’m referring to her comment I read today about a “place in hell” for President Reagan, which she then had to back off

Time for the U.N. to get involved. A peacekeeping force from a place like Somalia would do the trick.

I don’t get it. Illinois has the strictest gun laws in the country. Why aren’t the gangsters and hoodlums obeying the LAW?

They should make the gun laws even stricter to stop the killing.

Been to Boston many times. Mostly for Red Sox games. I usually get in early and explore the city. Never really felt threaded.

On a Google map search, there's a "Bad Boys Sub & Fish" place next to the "fried chicken king" of Harold's Kitchen Shack and across the street is a hair-braiding establishment. Seems like the place.

I can see the coverage now by Lying Lost and Jorge Suckalotapuss on ABC -

Suckalotapuss: We have learned from defamed sources that are not supposed to talk with us that the massacre suspect is named Toofurious Shabazz Holmes. We will continue to try and confirm this information with more corrupt civil servants who are not authorized to talk to us about this ongoing investigation. Wait... I understand my esteemed comrade Lying Lost may have some more information for us.... Lying, what have you learned?

Lost: Jorge... Jorge - we have uncovered some new information that might be important regarding this horrific act of terrorism.

Suckalotapuss: Let’s go to Lying Lost for some new information.

Lost: There is a Toofurious Shabazz Holmes that is listed as a member of the Tea Party in Illinois. Now we don’t know for sure if this is the same Toofurious Shabazz Holmes, but we are working to confirm that a Tea Party terrorists could have committed this horrific crime.

Suckalotapuss: Wow! That’s quite a coincidence Lying. We will continue to work to confirm if a this murderer could be a member of the Tea Party in Illinois. That is fascinating Lying!

19 in an eight hour stretch.

Some things to ponder.

1) Does it fit the definition of self-genocide?

2) Does anyone have any illusions that this will never change?

3) Is anyone getting a purple heart?

There you go.

The place in hell is going to be filled with Illinois politicians that disarm law abiding citizens and give sanctuary status to illegals running drugs and guns in the City.

Skittles, Skittles everywhere, and it’s not even the weekend yet.

Will Biden demand a “two state solution”?

Will Reid surrender?

Where are the “ladies in pink” and the “human shields”?

What is the exit strategy?

Will Chick-fil-A ever rise to the level of Chicago’s values?

Shouldn’t all of this be blamed on White people?

Did Obama inherit this too???
