    Is this a reflection on Obama?


    Body count:
    In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago; 221 killed in Iraq, and Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire United States. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago!


    Chicago Politicians of Late


    President of the United States of America:
    Barack Hussein Obama (Democrat)
    Senator:
    Dick Durbin (Democrat)
    House Representative:
    Jesse Jackson Jr. (Democrat)
    Governor:

    House leader:
    Mike Madigan (Democrat)
    Atty. Gen.:
    Lisa Madigan (Democrat) [daughter of Mike]
    Mayor:
    Rahm Emanuel (Democrat)
    Former Mayors:
    The notorious Richard Daleys (Democrats); father and son who both served as Chicago mayors for a combined period of 43 years. They were considered to have run the most corrupt political machine in the nations history.
    Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daly:
    Valerie Jarrett (Democrat); born in Shiraz, Iran. She is presently serving as Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama.
    Past Illinois Governors (all from Chicago):
    1) Rod Blagojevich (Democrat) [presently in prison for extortion and racketeering]
    2) Daniel Walker (Democrat) [sentenced to four years imprisonment for bank fraud, three years for perjury, and probation for false financial statements]

    Past U.S. Congressmen (both from Chicago):
    1) Mel Reynolds (Democrat) [convicted and was imprisoned on 12 counts of sexual assault, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography. Was also convicted and imprisoned for 15 counts of bank fraud and lying to SEC investigators. Bill Clinton commuted the sentence for bank fraud and released Reynolds early. He is now seeking the vacated Congressional seat, once held by Jesse Jackson, Jr.!
    2) Dan Rostenkowski (Democrat) [convicted and imprisoned for corruption and mail fraud]

    The Leadership in Illinois

    House and Senate: all Democrats.
    The Chicago school system is rated as one of the worst in the country, but the teachers are the highest paid with a very strong union. (Arne Duncan served as Chicago Public Schools Chief Executive Officer from June 2001 to Dec. 2008, when Barack Obama appointed him to the post of U.S. Secretary of Education, a post that he still holds).

    State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.

    Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25%, highest in country.

    There is more; much more, but I think you get the picture!

    And they can't blame Republicans since there aren't any!

    This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois and this is his background.

    And he is going to fix Washington politics for us?

    WHAT A MESS! God Help Us ALL!!

    Sounds like we need to transform the rest of the United States like Chicago. Keep drinking the White House's Kool-Aid and that's what we'll have. BT100dc

    The coruption in the State of Illinois started (my guess) when it became a state. The democrats build their political army by giving unions all they wanted and more and by creating patronage jobs of all kinds. The list of corrupt officals at every level of state, local and county government is to long a list to present here. But think aobut Obama, and the group of people he was tutored by, Ricahrd M. Daley, Richies Brother , Rahm Emanual, Jessie Jackson Jr, and his wife, Blagovich and his wife, Resco, just to name the ones that come to mind. Obama never ran or was responsible for running anything! He is a puppet for the Illinois and Chicago politicans as well as being a socialist. Any one from Illinois remember Paul Powell? In what other state does the president of the state senate retires and just pass the job on to his son? Where else but cook county does the president fall ill and his son be palced in his spot and then hire relatives that are convicted felons? Sissy and I have a bet on when Illinois will get a CC carry law in place stay tuned for the out come of that !

    Just seen this on another site. If you want to get rid of Rahm, this should make him a bunk buddies with Blogo!!


    Toronto-Dominion Bank (C:TD)
    Shares Issued 918,894,451
    Last Close 1/29/2013 $83.58
    Tuesday January 29 2013 - In the News

    The Vancouver Sun reports in its Tuesday edition that TD Bank suddenly found itself in the cross-hairs of the gun control debate after Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sent a letter to the bank's U.S. subsidiary asking it to stop lending money to gun maker Smith & Wesson because the company does not support gun-safety measures. Postmedia's William Marsden quotes Mr. Emanuel's letter to TD's U.S. boss, Bharat Masrani, as saying: "TD Bank currently aids the gun manufacturing industry through a $60-million revolving line of credit with Smith & Wesson, a gun manufacturer that produces the AR-15 -- an assault weapon that was used by James Holmes to kill 12 people and wound 58 in a crowded movie theatre in Aurora. I ask you to use your influence to push this company to find common ground with the vast majority of Americans who support a military weapons and ammunition ban and comprehensive background checks." TD Bank official Rebecca Acededo told Postmedia, "we respectfully decline to comment" on Mr. Emanuel's letter. Mr. Emanuel sent a similar letter to the No. 2 financial institution in the U.S., Bank of America, requesting that it withdraw its $25-million letter of credit to gun maker Sturm, Ruger.

    It certainly appears that the same mobsters who ran Chi town then moved to Las Vegas are now interested in making LV the press capital to take some of heat off of Chi town.

    As of 1-30-13 Chicago has 42 homicides, that after over 500 in 2012. Those gun laws really work.

    One of the people murdered the other day in Chicago, was some girl that was part of Obummer's inaguration party. Another note, on Newsmax yesterday, they said that the city is tearing down Ronald Reagan's childhood home to make room for Obama's library's parking lot. But they are going to put up a plaque to commemorate the site of the former house. Touching of Chicago, isn't it.

    Chicago is reported to graduate 41% of the curent 2013 high school class. Only 59% dropout! Wonder what all of those dropouts do for a living. Are they upright citizens or gangbangers? New York City is not much better. Wonder why their murder rates are so high?

    As a teacher, the mind set of the parents is a big part of the problem. That's not to say that the education system is working, but parents don't make the kids take responsibility for what they do or don't do. Then the teachers are put in the position of having to try? Kids have no fear of anything forget respect they need to fear a reaction to their actions and they don't. The education system needs to offer more paths for kids, instead of the college for everyone attitude that pervails. Kids are not engaged if they don't see how what is being taught will be of any value. There is college, jr college and trade schools. Academics think tha a 4 yr schools is the real path for kids that's way off base. Offer kids sound alternative education plans and we'd have a higher sucess rate with kids and less drop outs nad gang bangers.
