Yesterday we established that Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon (DEMCORAT) was The Worst Person in the World for allegedly stealing gift cards that were intended for poor families.
Today, let’s make the case for Chicago being The Worst City in the United States.
It was a close competition between Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, New Orleans, and Philadelphia (guess what all of these cities have in common? That’s right — they’ve all been run into the ground by dirty Democrat politicians and failed Democrat/Socialist policies).
But Chicago edged them all out. The city that was “led” by the likes of Barrack Obama (now President-elect), Rham Emmanuel (now Obama’s Chief of Staff), and Arne Duncan (now Obama’s Secretary of Education).
Or — more accurately — -the city was “run down” by those men and the rest of the Chicago machine that produced them.
It’s already been established that summer time in Chicago is more dangerous than war-time in Baghdad. Despite Democrats (illegally) banning guns the murder and violence rates are staggering.
Yesterday, five people were shot as they left a crowded high school basketball game at Paul Laurence Dunbar Vocational Career Academy — actress/singer Jennifer Hudson’s old school. Police think the attacks were “gang related”.
As Rachel Lucas points out:
Chicago has a violence problem because they have a culture problem – a culture that doesn’t value education, parenting, or personal responsibility. When you have generations of people raised without morals or values, you will have violence – with or without guns.
And lest you think that Chicago’s crimes are all relegated to black-on-black crime (the crime the media dare not speak of) — there are plenty of racially motivated hate crimes going on in Chicago, too.
Chicago has a large and growing Muslim population — so the blacks are off-the-hook for these crimes. I think it’s pretty easy to figure out who’s spray painting “Death to Israel” on the synagogues.
President-elect Obama has tapped Superintendent of Chicago schools Arne Duncan to be our nation’s Secretary of Education. Which should alarm everyone who has children they love and care about. Or anybody who doesn’t want to have to take care of other people’s illiterate children.
Under Duncan’s watch in 2007, only 17 percent of eighth graders tested at or above grade level in reading in Chicago Public Schools the school system administered by Arne Duncan since 2001.
Chicago has a history of high dropout rates, with around half of all students failing to graduate for the past 30 years.
Outstanding effort there Mr. Duncan.
Of course with the influence of unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers helping direct and lead Chicago’s educational transformation, what could possibly go wrong?
This one doesn’t take much elaboration, does it?
Illinois’s last governor, George Ryan (R) is in prison for federal corruption convictions. Their current governor has been indicted for trying to sale the vacated seat of Sen. Barrack Obama.
Which is why I annoint the city of Chicago as The Worst City in the United States.
UPDATE — much more on the Corruption angle over at Conservative Oasis, who takes a look at who’s running the state of Illinois down to the city of Chicago:
Let’s take a look at Illinois governmental bodies, from the top, all the way down to Chicago’s City level. Let’s do a comparison of Democrat vs. Republican seats.
Democrats: 37 Republicans: 22
Nothing odd there. A little out of whack, but nothing jumps out at me.
Democrats: 67 Republicans: 51
Hmmm. Ok. Looks a little like the rest of what has happened to the Republicans. Lagging behind, but nothing too out of the ordinary.
County Board, Cook County
Democrats: 12 Republicans: 5
Ouch. Looks like the Board of Chicago’s home County is a little tipped to one side. Hmmm…
Chicago City Council
50 members. 50 Democrats.
Huh? What? Not a single Republican in the most corrupt political city in the U.S.?
Do the Math?
What can one conclude from this? I don’t think it takes a genius to see the apparent problem. Chicago is run by corrupt people. All of them, Democrats.
Blagojevich rose to his power through Chicago. He previously represented Chicago in the U.S. Congress.
The presiding officer of the Chicago City Council is the Mayor, Mayor Richard M. Daley, Democrat. He is the son of Richard J. Daley, the notoriously corrupt former Mayor of Chicago who ruled it like a mob boss.
Democrats have dominated the office of Mayor in modern Chicago history; the last Republican mayor was William Hale Thompson who left office in 1931.
The Cook County board has far more Democrat members (by proportion) than any other County in Illinois. It is one of the most heavily Democrat leaning Counties in the United States.
Chicago is the largest city in America not to term limit its Mayor.
