The weekend has just started.

If the weather is good by noon Sunday they may break the record.

Gun laws are not working, huh? Perhaps it is time for... "double secret probation?"

The liberal north side yuppies need to practice laying down on a sidewalk and screaming: I eat Aunt Jemima pancakes every Thursday.

It might save their lives.

Chicago is Obama’s hometown. Chicago is the Democrats’ turf. Chicago is the crown jewel in King Obama’s crown. Why are the Democrats not called on their murderous cities? What are the stats on murder in U.S. cities with Democrat mayors as compared to U.S. cities with Republican mayors?

or.. "reporting" done in the patented genre of NBC's cherry bomb reporting, Headline:

Some wonder: Are the killings done by racist whites in blackface?

MSM motto: If at first it don't seethe try, try again until you make it seethe.

“Stand your ground” laws wouldn’t work in Chicago.

It would be difficult to find a piece of ground to stand on that isn’t already littered with bodies...

From the Chicago Sun Times.

But yeah, NBPP and their associated ilk make international hay and hold justice hostage over the T. Martin incident.

MR. OBAMA'S NEIGHBORHOOD

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
A beautiful day for a neighbor
It's a neighborly day in this beautywood
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you
So let's make the most of this beautiful day
Please won't you be my neighbor?
Won' t you be my neighbor?
Just don't sit on your door stoop
Or by your front-room window
Other than that....it's always a beautiful day
In the 'hood
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

I thought guns were illegal in Illinois... Now you are telling me bad people there have guns, but I can’t even drive through that state without taking my gun apart first? Why should I obey a law disregarded by people who are actually KILLING people?

Chacago has become more dangerous than any war zone. People ought to get hazardous duty pay just for living there.

Notice that “shot” comes first. I watched a movie called HOTEL RWANDA. A lot of people were killed with machetes in Rwanda. Less carbon footprint with a machete, I guess.
