Re: Trump is such a Tweet!

John, I think you could keep Hyde Park a lot cleaner with this. I'd recommend backing it down to 7.62mm minigun to lessen damage to property.




If you don't embody controversy, what you say will become just another part of the media driven culture of stifling thought and debate about issues.

Maybe they could mobilize state national guard. LOLZ galore. Peacekeeping operations in Lower Wacker Drive? refugee centers in Lincoln Park? Ain't happening either unless there is large scale chaos, which ain't happening.

Then, maybe an order could come to arm the citizenry against, ummm, each other? Aleppo by Millennium Park? MSI zombie apocalypse? What could possibly go wrong?

So, federal intervention would be a bad idea in any case. Then, why the tweet? To show action? Earn bonus points with the faithful?

Federal intervention would be bad as you've described in a few ways. There are likely other ways for the fed gov to intervene and assist locally to solve a problem. Maybe?? Was the tweet to show action or earn points? Maybe.


In the 30 plus years I've called Chicago my second home I do not recall anyone actually looking into why there is violence and then doing something about the true root causes. We had Cabrini Green. Then didn't. The right communities prospered. Others didn't.

The Democrat bozos running the city were too busy with reelection so basic tenets went missing. Youngsters found themselves detached from reality. No wonder. Conservatives at the state level... Pfeh.


Couldn't agree more with the two paragraphs above. Thirty years? Similar problems have plagued this city since my father grew up on the south side in the 40s and 50s. And the same non-response has also been the norm. I won't pretend to know why Trump tweeted. If he does call attention to the problem and work toward an actual solution I don't care why.

Chicago should be ground zero for urban issues remediation. Instead we're busy invading countries and trying to out-crap each other. Not a resounding success story.

This is where you confuse me. Earlier you asked if the fed had authority to enforce laws on a local level. I read it as a challenge to 'bring in the feds'. Now, as I read it, you are comparing the fed gov invasion of other countries to an urban issue. Presumably that the federal government should allocate it's resources to local issues. ...while making several points of how federal intervention would not work. Confusing.

I believe the problems in Chicago and similar urban areas have been ignored for a long time by the local/city/state authorities. Why?? If they have failed to do their job for so long how should the problem be remedied?


So, here you have it. I'm not afraid of the tweets. I'm afraid of the attitudes. At the end of the day I still have my mega money and will retire in Europe. But we should be better than that.

Afraid of attitudes?? I rather like an attitude that says inaction of local/city/state authorities has cost the lives of thousands of people. It's unconscionable an attitude existed for decades that did not or would not address the problem. It's absofrickinlutely mind blowing that a black president from Chicago failed to effectively address the problem and the rich white dude is getting slammed while bringing it to national attention.

This seems very disingenuous coming from you John. I mean, you've been pretty clear you think the Left when in power should ignore the separation of powers and federalism, the Constitution be damned, and here you are, hiding behind federalism, because it was proposed by someone on the right...

Do you hear the people sing / Lost in the valley of the night?
It is the music of a people / Who are climbing to the light.
For the wretched of the earth / There is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end / And the sun will rise...

Re: Trump is such a Tweet!

Chicago is not a government issue. It's an income and jobs issue.

It's not a black issue. I lived in the deep south and people who went to work every day had no issues with crime. It's only when jobs disappeared that crime grew.

Cuts in education and the social safety net did not help, and idiotic law enforcement didn't help either.

Being gun free (lolz) was meaningless as any bravo worth their hip hop pants simply took the skyway to Indiana where guns are plentiful.

The feds, state, and local leaders did nothing to improve opportunity. Business leaders as well.

When there's opportunity there's jobs, lower crime... It's not a difficult concept. Trump can bring in the Guard and the moment they leave it's back to square one.

We see what happened in Ferguson MO or other places and think it's because the cops did such and such. There's a lot more issues that are not discussed. Eventually when we turn into Aleppo we will understand.

Trump is so awesome!!! Hahaha

I sure as hell wouldn't want to be an American right now, but since I'm not, I am constantly entertained by simply typing in Trump on google

I was just coming here to post that. Here's another one:

This guy is an idiot. A projecting idiot. We have a complete idiot running this country.

But fortunately he is going to alienate his fellow Republicans. I hope impeachment starts soon!

When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

But that leaves us with Pence. Seriously, if a president gets impeached, there should be a new election held asap. Dies in office, yeah, VP, but you are trusting the choice of a guy you just impeached.

I don't think Pence is the unstable, insecure nut that Trump is. Pence may not be the most evolved, but he is sane.

Herschel, we need to do something. Trump is making our country less safe by the day.

Re: Trump is such a Tweet!

It's not just his executive orders, his tweeting and complaining about the election results. Raves like a madman. His tweeting is absurd. He is the complete BSC dude.

Do you see signs of BPD in him?

Hersch, I don't think you're going to finagle a way to get Hillery in the White House. But apparently you and I want something to happen. Me, is to win the Powerball lottery and you to see Trump impeached. I think my chances are greater.
