How’s that gun control thing working out in Chicago?
More people have died in Chicago this year than in Afghanistan. This hellhole is completely run by Democrats, best buds of BO. And half the people in this country still think this bunch of incompetents can run the entire country in spite of the past four years of utter failure. Amazing.
HOG Butcher for the World,
Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,
Player with Railroads and the Nation’s Freight Handler;
Stormy, husky, brawling,
City of the Big Shoulders:
They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I
have seen your painted women under the gas lamps
luring the farm boys.
And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it
is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to
And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the
faces of women and children I have seen the marks
of wanton hunger.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who
sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer
and say to them:
Come and show me another city with lifted head singing
so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.
Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on
job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the
little soft cities;
Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning
as a savage pitted against the wilderness,
Building, breaking, rebuilding,
Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with
Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young
Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has
never lost a battle,
Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse.
and under his ribs the heart of the people,
Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of
Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog
Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with
Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation
It would seem that gun control is working out quite well.
It seems to be working out great for the criminals. Not so great for everybody else though.
The “Reverends” don’t care.
Nope - not possible. Chicago has strict gun control, and as every liberal knows those criminals who would kill or rob someone without a qualm will nevertheless obey gun control laws. And also as every liberal knows having a gun to defend yourself is a lot more dangerous than being an unarmed victim. SO I repeat - not possible in Chicago.
The police will protct you, and in Chicago they're doing a bang up job. I wonder how many armed police are on the mayor's personal protection detail.
—yep—and Carl Sandburg was recently seen with Elvis-—
They can’t even wait for the weekend anymore.
Ceasefire on the first of the month,so everyone can replenish their EBT cards!
I don’t know where this fiction comes from; everyone knows that guns are illegal in Chicago.
Just gettin ready for the weekend.
Shades of our future if Obama is re-elected.
Wait, if any of these were black folks shot by white folks you just might have a story here. Otherwise...
Darn good thing they don’t have any gun stores, concealed weapons, or assault weapons there! I mail ordered another 1600 rounds of ammo.
Had to be them crazy christians going after them mizzlems because they can’t geit No Chiken!
