Weve seen signs the economy is improving, but in the Edgewater neighborhood today, we saw how many Chicagoans are struggling.
CBSs 2 Jim Williams has the story in this original report.
It was a desperate attempt for a home: A line of thousands waited on Sheridan Road, north of Foster and around the corner.
Many, like Crystal Cooper, had been there all night.
Weve been here since 8 oclock last night. We slept in our chairs with our covers, said Cooper....

And you gets a free Obamafone while you waits for your free housing....and free foodstamps....and free healthcare.
Things that cannot continue....won’t.
When people line up all night like this, what if they have to go to the bathroom?
Lazy people waiting in line for “free” stuff isn’t exactly a conclusive and exhaustive economic study. Doesn’t prove anything either way.
That money is going to run out
It’s a mathematical fact
They’d make absolutely splendid neighbors, don’t you think?
Free Housing for LIFE...
Unfortunately, this is nothing new.
hmmm, I wonder what kind of “peeps” are lined up for freebies. Lemme guess...white people? s/
If they only put that much effort into actually finding a job.
“If they only put that much effort into actually finding a job.”
Job? what’s that? I ain’t lookin’ for no job. That’s a cracka’ thing. obama will take care of me!
My thought, exactly.
Then, I thought, "Mooching free stuff off people who work for a living, is their job."

Ok - in NC, the NAACP said that it is not right to make people wait in line to get a valid ID.
But for free housing? OH, HELL yeah.
I'll go out on a limb and guess that they needed to show ID to get the free housing.

how about a free bus ticket to Gary?
You mean there’s infinite demand when something is Free?
actually working EVERY DAY for 8 hours per day . that is what is hard and why these cretins prefer to stay home all day every day and line up once in a while to receive more free crap from the government. they know all they have to do is stand in line one day , do that one “effort” and then they won't have to do anything for the rest of their lives , don't have to work ever again. it's like winning the lottery to these evil cretins
totally right, finance no different than physics.
This is how we can win elections in “bad cities”. The day before the election, spread flyers all over town advertising free obamacash somewhere on election day. The ensuing riot when it is discovered there is no obama cash, will prevent the residents from voting 10 or 20 times each for the democrat.
Can you just imagine the positive effects...
Bathroom??? We don’t need no steeenkin’ bathroom. That’s for crackers.
In Lebanon Pa they call them Wellfare Villages.
That's the whole point of "early voting".
It lets the same people vote two or three times a day, in different precincts using different identies, over the entire duration of the "early voting" period, without interfering with meth-cooking, siesta, or midnight basketball.
No, you didn't. Those leeches are doing just fine. The ones who are struggling are the working tax payers who are footing the bill.

Even I will go for free stuff, but I won’t stand in line for it.
I believe the government is already helping minorities buy houses. That’s what is causing the supposedly housing recovery. Obama signs an EO and people get free houses. Coming soon to every neighborhood. Then people can say “This is a neighborhood. This ain’t no residential district!”
So, are all these people currently homeless or are they just waiting in line for a free house?
“I’ll go out on a limb and guess that they needed to show ID to get the free housing.”
Wait.... is that true? I mean, it makes sense, but I seriously wonder.
Do you need ID to get an ObamaPhone?
Some of the same people waiting in line for housing are probably the ones who wait in line to pay two hundred dollars for sneakers with Lebron James name on them. There is little evidence of sanity to be seen now.
Or the ones that wait for the people in line to buy the $200 sneakers so they can steal them from them.
