To Joe F… thanks for promoting the loss of our guns rights.

Pull out of Iraq?!?!
Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
In the last six months:

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J.
…our leadership in Illinois…all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.
Of course, they’re all blaming each other!
Can’t blame Repub licans; they’re aren’t any!
State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
(Look 'em up if you want)
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in
Illinois. And he’s gonna ‘fix’ Washington
politics for us?
Wake Up America!
Let’s be fair and “spread” the blame.
Mr. Ryan, who in 40 years in public office became one of the most powerful Republicans in the Midwest, was convicted last year of a long list of corruption charges stemming from his tenure as secretary of state and governor of Illinois, including using public money for campaign work and exchanging state business for money and gifts, among them an island vacation.
He is the third former Illinois governor convicted of wrongdoing.
Where the other two Democrats?
Are there any republicans in Chicago?
ABC Ignored Teen-Sex Scandal of Democrat Mel Reynolds Until 1995 Conviction
By Tim Graham (Bio | Archive)
October 5, 2006 - 13:26 ET
Congressman Mel Reynolds, the Democrat convicted of 12 charges, including sex with 16-year-old Beverly Heard and asking her to take pornographic photographs of a 15-year old, was indicted on August 21, 1994. ABC, the current scourge of congressional teen-sex scandals, reported nothing – until Reynolds was convicted a year later, on August 23, 1995. In fact, on May 13, 1994, ABC featured Reynolds in a “Person of the Week” speaking out in favor of two Chicago ladies fighting child molesters:
Peter Jennings: " Their local congressman is certainly on their side. He also wants to make child molesting a federal offense."
Rep. Mel Reynolds (D), Illinois: “These ladies really illustrate how being active in your community can really make a difference.”
Jennings: " If the law is to change, it will need the support of many more state legislators, which means more mothers will have to get involved."
ABC’s World News Tonight story on Reynolds being convicted on August 23, 1995, didn’t have any fury about how Democrats could allow this sexual predator in their caucus. For their part, ABC seemed more suffused with sadness than outrage:
Diane Sawyer, substitute anchor: “In Chicago, Congressman Mel Reynolds remains free on his own recognizance after his conviction last night of having sex with a minor. His lawyers say they’ll appeal. In the meantime, the Illinois Democrat will continue to pick up a paycheck, as ABC’s Ron Claiborne reports.”
I’m not from Illinois, never been there, and have no other information to go on, other than what I’m reading here, and following the Obama connection over the past months, but…it seems to me that a “a lone wolf republican in the majority den of Democrats” can/could be convicted of anything given the probable dissemination of information by the “Media” that just happens to be electing our next President.
Just spiff balling mind you.
Heck Michael, their is very few in Illinois!
Sorry, in my first post I meant to say Joey B.
