Another Liberal City Near Bankruptcy

Chicago, Obama’s hometown by the way, is in financial ruin. It taxes people to death and it spends way more than it takes in. The place is a haven for corruption and union deals that have led to pensions sucking the life out of the city. The only answer that liberals have is to tax more but the place has a lot of poverty and more and more people are getting on the welfare wagon. Chicago is nearly ruined and will soon hit rock bottom.

So really, this is just another liberal run city. Find any city in dire straits and it is run by liberals.

Chicago has been a liberal run city for as far back as anyone can recall. It has been the home of criminals and crime bosses and some of those were not even elected officials. Al Capone was probably one of Chicago’s more tame criminals.

Chicago has been downgraded and is now just two levels above junk bond rating:

Chicago drew closer to a fiscal free fall on Friday with a rating downgrade from Moody’s Investors Service that could trigger the immediate termination of four interest-rate swap agreements, costing the city about $58 million and raising the prospect of more broken swaps contracts.

The downgrade to Baa2, just two steps above junk, and a warning the rating could fall further still, means the third-biggest U.S. city could face even higher costs in the future if banks choose to terminate other interest-rate hedges against fluctuations in interest rates. All told, Chicago holds swaps contracts covering $2.67 billion in debt, according to a disclosure late last year. Yahoo News

I think Chicago will collapse though it is highly likely Obama will find some way to step in and get money sent there. Sharpton and others will scream racism and say we can’t let Chicago fail (like folks screamed about Detroit) but the reality is the city and most of its people deserve to fail.

The people there continue to vote for liberal politicians who are part of the crime scene. It is ingrained in the system and anyone who tries to go counter to that ends up swimming with the fishes. Let them fail and be done with it.

Perhaps once the place collapses and people move out or riot with each other they can throw out all the criminals and rebuild.

Then again it is more likely the people there, led by their political crime bosses, will walk around hat in hand to beg the American taxpayers to bail them out.

Liberals only know one solution to problems and that is to throw more money at them while fleecing as many people as they can. It never works but they keep at it. When the only tool you have is a hammer all problems look like a nail.

The only tools liberals have are tax and spend so all problems look like money problems.

Government is not your mommy and daddy and you should not depend on it. If you do you are part of the problem.

So as one pastor from the Chicago area would say, the chickens are coming home to roost…

Have fun on the way to the bottom and please, keep your issues to yourself. The rest of us do not want to pay for them. In other words, you deserve to suffer for your stupidity but the rest of us should not suffer along with you.

Even a liberal moron like Twinkle Toes Emanuel is having trouble in Chicago. People want too much and don’t think he is delivering enough…

Cave canem!

Why Shop At An Unsafe Mall?

The Mall of America has a policy that bans guns from its premises. Law abiding citizens are not allowed to carry firearms on the property (or at least inside the mall itself) but this policy will do little to stop lawbreakers from entering the mall with firearms and causing all kinds of destruction.

There are threats from terrorist groups where lone wolf terrorists have been asked to attack malls in the US and the Mall of America is on the list of targets. The solution the mall has come up with is for the law abiding to leave their firearms in their cars or at home thus making them sheep.

People who shoot back have a better chance of survival when attacked by a bad guy with a gun.

What will the mall do? It might hire private security or police officers might be assigned to the property. Neither is effective. Hundreds of law abiding gun owners with their guns are a much more deadly foe than cops or security guards scattered throughout. Besides, wouldn’t it be better if the cops were out patrolling the streets?

The mall has basically told would be attackers that the place is a shooting gallery and invited them in. If it had instead published that it wants and encourages gun owners to carry on the property would be bad guys would think twice before attacking. Bad people do not like to attack those who can and will fight back. They like to pick the weak and unprotected. This is why mass shootings happen at places where guns are banned like malls, theaters and schools.

You have never seen a mass shooting at a gun show.

My suggestion is to avoid the place and any other that does not allow people to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. If you are not able to protect yourself then you will not be safe. The government and private businesses are unable to protect you and if you are harmed they will not take responsibility for your injuries.

If enough people stay away from the mall to cause it financial distress and cite the gun ban as the reason the mall’s management will quickly change its mind. If not then a lot of anti gun folks will shop there in their deluded world where they think they are safe. Let them be the targets. Stay home or shop where you are encouraged to carry your firearm.

America was founded by people with guns and our history includes armed people ensuring their own safety and the safety of their neighbors. Instead of being the Mall of America perhaps it should be the Mall of un-American Values…

Do They Have The Appetite For The Consequence?

Valerie Jarrett, the despicable cretin who is the voice of evil in Obama’s ear made an interesting statement where she claimed Americans are hungry for Obama to do things on his own when Congress will not act (or will not do what Obama wants).

The only people hungry for him to act that way are in the minority. There are some liberals who will say Obama needs to do this because he can’t get it otherwise and he is so great and all. These would be the same people who called Bush a cowboy and King George because they felt he exceeded his power.

The other groups that want this are those who will benefit from Obama’s lawlessness like illegal aliens. They want him to ignore the law just like they did because it will help them.

Jarrett continues by telling us Obama will do more of this, she says within his executive power, (which means he will break the law and say he has the authority to do what he did) because people want it.

In poll after poll the majority does not want this to take place. They certainly do not want this illegal immigrant action and they most assuredly do not want it done by executive action.

She is wrong. More precisely she is lying.

The article says that Jarrett believes Americans are hungry for Obama to act like an imperial president.

Jarrett is incorrect but let us assume that most people are hungry for this.

The question I have is while they might be hungry for Obama to act like an imperial president do they have the appetite for the rest of us to act like Revolutionary Citizens?

We got rid of one imperial despot and we can do the same with another (it is our duty to do so). So be careful what you wish for Valerie.

What Democrat Amnesty Is All About

In case you doubted it when I and many others pointed out that the only reason Democrats want to push amnesty and get it passed is so they can have millions of new voters a Democrat has said just that.

Democrat Kurt Schrader of Oregon supports amnesty and he said right out that whoever wins the fight over the issue will have control of the country for the next 30 years (a lot of bluster but he believes it). He indicated that the Democrats have ticked off a lot of the white folks in their base with attacks and that those folks need to be reigned back in and new voters added. You see, whether they like to admit it or not, they still need lots of white people (and there are plenty of white liberals) to vote for them or they lose. Adding millions of illegals will help make up for those who might sit it out over the way they have been treated.

This issue is not about all the feel good stuff Democrats spew when they discuss it because they don’t really care about the plight of the illegals. They only want the votes.

The sad reality is they want to reward illegal behavior just to add to their voter rolls.

We need to deal with those who broke the laws and dealing with them should involve punishment for their behavior. Democrats want to reward it.

It is sad but they put their party above the country.

And we heard that right from the donkey’s mouth…

As an aside McConnell should change the rules in the Senate to get the bill funding DHS and eliminating Obama’s amnesty through and send it to Obama to veto. If he does HE AND HE ALONE will be responsible for “shutting down*” DHS. I would love to see this just to hear the Democrats cry about the rule change after they praised Harry Reid for doing the same thing.

*Shutting Down is not accurate. A majority of DHS is mission essential so they have to continue working. They will get paid eventually but we will not be less safe if they are not funded.

Oscar Politics Fall Flat

The political opinions expressed by the liberal winners at the Oscars will go over big with those who are still on the liberal plantation but those opinions lack one small thing.

The Truth.

Patricia Arquette ranted about income equality for women falling back on the myth that women are paid less than men for doing the same work. Studies have shown that when all things are equal the pay is about the same. But the myth continues as liberals rebrand the issue one of equality and take up the faux fight to gin up support and voters.

I think everyone should be paid what they agree to with their employer. It is not up to the government to decide what people will be paid. If you are one of the best and brightest then you should be able to negotiate a good salary.

I do think however, that it is hard to take someone screaming about equality seriously when that person is doing so in a $20,000 wardrobe after receiving a $125,000 gift bag for nothing more than attending an award show (maybe the $250 vibrator in the bag can help ease her frustration). Arquette claimed she paid her dog walker more than she made for her work in Boyhood.

If she wants equality perhaps she should walk her own dog like the rest of us…

Then there was the duo of John Legend and rapper Common who accepted an award for the music in Selma. Legend ranted on about civil rights and claimed that the civil rights fight 50 years ago included voting rights and now voting rights are again under attack.

“We know that the voting rights that they fought for 50 years ago is being compromised in this country today,” adding, “We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today than there were under slavery in 1850.” IJ Review

What planet is this moron from? Voting rights are not under attack. There is a movement to require an ID to vote and that is how it should be. You need an ID to do almost anything in society from boarding an airplane to buying tobacco or alcohol to registering your kids for little league. You even need an ID to enter government buildings and unions who oppose voter ID laws require an ID before anyone can vote in union elections.

Why is it so tough to present an ID when voting and how can that possibly equate to an attack on voting rights? The argument that people who are poor can’t get an ID is a false one. The very people who allegedly can’t get an ID seem to be able to produce one to get welfare benefits.

Voting rights are not under attack or being compromised. What is happening is people are being held accountable. After elections where more people voted than were registered in some places and where people bragged about voting more than once is it too much to ask that people show an ID?

As for the number of incarcerated black men and the claim there are more in jail than were held in slavery that might very well be correct. That does not mean that they are in jail under false pretenses though. If these guys are concerned about the number of black men in jail perhaps they should work to help communities realize that they should raise their children not to be criminals. Here is an idea, start following conservative principles and leave liberalism behind. Liberal policies have led to the breakdown of the black family and the result has been decades of men raised into crime and sent to prison. One only needs to look at the areas of the country with high crime and large numbers of blacks in trouble to notice all these areas are run by liberals.

I would also point out there are more blacks in slavery now then there were during slavery only now they are slaves to the Democrat plantation where they are held in bondage by economics rather then chains. If they step out of line they are beaten by their masters in the Democrat party until they fall back in line.

The people who stand up in these award ceremonies and spout nonsense show how stupid they really are. These are the kind of people who give us poor leaders because they vote.

Let’s face it; if voting rights were actually being compromised we would not have Obama and many others in office…
