Must be in all those neighborhoods full of creepy-ass-crackers. Or the Amish.
This is the same mentality that kept Eric Holder’s people in New Orleans as Katrina bore down, the mentality that it is somebody else’ responsibility to save you.
No state of emergency.
Posse Comitatus (erh however itz spelt)
They should pass some laws restricting guns, and all their problems will disappear! /s
I believe that is the goal of the libs
PC is irrelevant; the IL Constitution specifically gives authority to the Governor to call on the militia to enforce law: see post 38.
Best not to waste the ammo unless homeland security wants to take care of it.
Perhaps marksmanship classes and some target practice. Way too much collateral damage by the local nationals.
If they don’t like the moral standards of their Hood then they should start taking their Hood back themselves starting with their own house and own kids. The men should once again become such and the women glad of it.
The problem with that attitude is precisely that it makes for
republican governors that are afraid to act. Even when the action would be wholly directed against invaders (like this). In short, it makes for abdication of power [and responsibility] to the federal government -- results of which we are reaping with today's statist policies.
What advice could he have possibly given them?

LITTLE ROCK “Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will give the commencement address at Saturday’s graduation ceremonies for the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service.”
National Guardsmen have jobs. Who will support their families while they are guarding these murderous felons?
Some things are actually turning around in Detroit one neighborhood at a time. Big players moving in along with some big stores which are bringing jobs and money.
The grandson of one of my neighbors transferred to Detroit from NY a while back and says he loves it. All of his neighbors are high 5 to mid 6 figure coworkers from Quicken loans or JP Morgan. They got big bonuses for living in the city and the value of their dollar goes a lot further than it did in NY. He bought a decent home from a private owner and a lot on either side from the city for under $65 grand and all his neighbors are doing the same.
The guy says its actually got a small town feel with white picket fences and all. They pay for extra private security and the companies are paying for upgrades to power and sewer systems. He says that there are a few elderly blacks still in the neighborhood and couldn’t be happier to see what’s happening.
Why do they want the NG? All they’ll do is cry and riot when an NG kills some dirtbag who deserved it.
The reason why the cops can’t protect you is because you hate the cops and hamstring them at every turn. Stop complaining about getting exactly what you demand.
Maybe they’re doing this because they expect trouble after the Martin verdict.
Conservatives don’t want to fix anything. Look around FR.
“Every single day we wake up in the city of Chicago, some child, some young adult, some African-American male has been murdered, state Rep. Monique Davis said Thursday. This is not acceptable.”
Maybe you should talk to YOUR peeps about bringing morality back to YOUR African-American “culture”. The rest of us are sick of it and you.
Gangbangers are always dissed and stay dissed.
Since I actually want to fix things & address issues… does that mean I'm not Conservative?
Fiscal Responsibility Amendment
The power of Congress to regulate the value of the dollar is hereby repealed.
The value of the Dollar shall be one fifteen-hundredth avoirdupois ounce of gold with impurities not exceeding one part per thousand.
To guard against Congress using its authority over weights and measures to bypass Section I, the weight in Section II is approximately 28.3495 grams (SI).
The Secretary of the Treasury shall annually report the gold physically in its possession; this report shall be publicly available.
The power of the Congress to assume debt is hereby restricted: the congress shall assume no debt which shall cause the total obligations of the United States to exceed one hundred ten percent of the amount reported by the Secretary of the Treasury.
Any government agent, officer, judge, justice, employee, representative, or congressman causing gold to be confiscated from a private citizen shall be tried for theft and upon convection shall:
- be removed from office (and fired, if an employee),
- forfeit all pension and retirement benefits,
- pay all legal costs, and
- restore to the bereaved twice the amount in controversy
Chicago with 3 M pop and Egypt with 85 M, you can see that Chicago would just rate one F-16!Also I’m only 10 miles west of O’Hare and do not need the noise.
Rostenkowski was able to snag an old Huey.
How about an AC-130 gunship, homeland security could help with ammo.
Perhaps a few UH-1 gunships they could park them at Meigs Field.
The military exists to fight the enemy.
The police exist to protect the people
When the military becomes to police, the people become the enemy
Bingo! There is trouble brewing and they know it.
Yes, exactly! Duh...
How’s that gun control coming along Monique?
Not quite. There is trouble brewing and they want to take advantage of it.
I'd argue what the State Legislature passed and over-rode Governor Quinn with isn't even a conceal/carry law. NOWHERE in the legislation that was passed is ANY Illinois Citizen able to carry a concealed loaded-weapon outside their home.
What passed is a "fanny pack" law. You can carry a handgun in a fanny pack, but it must be unloaded. You can carry ammunition on your person to "load the gun" when needed, but carrying a loaded weapon? Uh uh.
So here's what's gonna happen: "Wait Mr. Robber/Rapist/Burgler/Muderer! I have to load my handgun first to defend myself, because I'm a law-abiding citizen."
To which Robber/Rapist/Burbler/Murderer has their way with you as you fumble to load your weapon.
I cannot WAIT for this POS that the State Legislature to get appealed and over-turned by the Federal Appeals Court. Maybe then we'll have Constitutional Carry.
Did not IL just made CCW legal.
It was purposefully done to try and hoodwink the Federal Appeals Court. It needs to be appealed, struck down, and Illinois declared a Constitutional Carry state.
Look at the reactions to Snowden leaking the NSA's domestic snooping programs and you'll see that the people are the enemy already.
They must have a lot of creepy ass crackers up there.
If the people of Chicago are unable to govern themselves, then they should not be able to vote in county, state or national elections. The Democrats would tighten them up in about two minutes.
If they arm the insurgents perhaps they will overthrow the Muslim Brotherhood Chicago regime. ;-)
Did not know that.
OMG.. They need A fence, I’ll bet they get a fence before the states get one to protect our nation’s border...
They should call George Zimmerman after he walks away from the FAUX trial in Florida.. Maybe he can form a neighborhood watch program in Chicago.. It won’t hurt, really... :)
“......you would have another Trayvon martin case on our hands.”...
Or far worse. ANY white guardsman/woman that shot ANY black kid would probably not even get out of the area alive themselves.
Ironic how Progressive sh!tholes need the National Guard to police the police and restore order. Seems like several years ago they were thinking of sending the National Guard into D.C. to restore order.
And the second a white Guardsman shoots a black thug, a large chunk of the black population of Chicago will be burning down anything they can find after they steal the contents.
No thanks, we've been suckered into this too many times before. Sad to say, you are on your own until you get better organized and definitely on the right side of the battle.

Flush until clean.....
US National Guard are local to their areas. What is going on in Chi-town, is to enable locals to brown shirt neighborhoods, vis-à-vis background federal control- by legal side stepping of posse comitatus. Once a challenge is made to the US Constitution. it takes at least 8 yrs to court. In the mean time, the Executive and Legislative can run amok- by a subservient armed/unarmed populace. Protections from abuse, by elected servants, are now longer codified by the US Constitution. Do the next right thing, no matter what, citizen.
Community improvement projects sound wonderful. Where I live, they built a nice open neighborhood to offset the other degrading crime-ridden neighborhoods in this area. They brought in high-end shops and stores too. And that brought in wealthier, higher class people.
Of course, it did not take the criminals long to figure out where the real money was. If the criminals are going to risk jail robbing people, they might as well rob someone rich with possessions worth having as opposed to robbing the poor in their own neighborhoods.
Decent people are starting to move out of that newer and nicer neighborhood as are some of the businesses. I predict that neighborhood will be rundown eventually.
The City of Detroit is bankrupt financially and morally because of liberal politicians and unions. Banks like JP Morgan can build nice neighborhoods to put a nice window dressing over these underlying issues. They can make gated communities and hire guards that protect the chosen few.
The real question in these areas is how do those that are not “chosen” live?
Without change that emphasizes personal moral responsibility, fiscal restraint, limited government, and recognition of the right of decent private citizens to defend themselves and their communities against violent criminals, these cities are doomed to poverty and despair.
Throwing money at societal problems does not solve those problems as our public education system proves handily.
Its important to note that Detroit is an open and concealed carry city.
Not everybody has what it takes to make a difference and for the most part conservatism is in a state of complete moral breakdown with nothing but anger and destruction.
That same regressive mentality also got lots of decent property owners in New Orleans disarmed, arrested, and even beaten by law enforcement when they took personal responsibility for defending themselves and their property.
So, you can see where it is a no-win scenario where regressive politicians like Ray Nagan rule.
Here is a suggestion: get out of Chicago now!
And seal the border!
The law in Dtroit may allow open and concealed carry; however, that does not mean that liberal-minded prosecutors, liberal-minded police, and liberal-minded citizens are accepting of it. Going to court to defend your rights can cost your job as well as lots of money and time whereas prosecutors and police have political protection with the taxpayer as an unlimited financial resource.
Conservatives are rising to meet the challenges; however, it is going to be long frustrating battle to restore our Constitutional Republic and decent people still have to make a living and raise their families.
Well you say a lot. I guess that’s something in your world.
