Should the U.S. pull out of Chicago?

By Art Hyland

THIS HEADLINE AND ITS LIST OF FACTS HAS BEEN MAKING THE ROUNDS ON THE INTERNET FOR AT LEAST TWO MONTHS.  I CANNOT FIND ITS ORIGINAL SOURCE.  IT HAS NOW BECOME A GENERIC UNDERSTANDING BY THE OCCUPY WALL STREET CROWD.

AND THEY’RE OKAY WITH IT.

Body count: In the last six months 500 killed (murdered) in Chicago. 
 
More school age children shot and killed than the recent massacre in Connecticut.
 
221  more than killed in Iraq – AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
 
President:  Barack Hussein Obama, Democrat
 
Senator:  Dick Durbin, Democrat
 
House  Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr., Democrat
 
Governor:  Pat Quinn, Democrat
 
House  leader: Mike Madigan, Democrat
 
State  Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of  Mike), Democrat
 
Mayor  of Chicago: Rahm Emanuel, Democrat
 
Of course, they’re all blaming each other. (Can’t blame Republicans, there aren’t any.)

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
 
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
 
Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
   
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.
 
George  Ryan is no longer Governor, as he is now in the big house (prison).  Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is also in the big house.  And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago.  That is because he is fighting being sent to…the big house.
 
The Land of Lincoln is now where their ex-governors make license plates.
