My favorite thing about these articles is that if you ask someone to name some great American cities, you're going to get a list of places run and populated almost entirely by Democrats/liberals.

NYC
Chicago
LA
San Francisco
Boston
Miami
Washington DC

You get pretty far down the list before you run into a place that is reliably Republican. And the response to this is to rip on cities instead of actually learning from it.

Yeah, but all of those cities have brown or black people in them. I prefer my inefficient omnipave landscape and cul de sac where everyone looks and thinks like me. Plus, we have way more Applebee's locations. You libs just don't understand real livin'.Elitists.

Lionel Mandrake: I wasn't aware that Obama was the Emperor of Chicago and responsible for all the city's ills.

Thanks for infroming me, FOX !!


Weren't they also accusing President Obama of pitting the American people against each other? What the fark do they call this? Also using this rationale wouldn't Mitt Romney be responsible for the other city they hate, Detroit?

Just throwing one more vote into the "this city is awesome" camp. My family has been up here for my wife's business since last September and we'll be up here until the end of the year. Living up here has even great, and it's the first place I've been outside of NC that's made me strongly consider moving here (family issues prevent that, sadly).

It doesn't feel dirty like New York, doesn't suck out your soul like LA, the public transit is better (and more accessible) than DC, and it doesn't smell of burning oil like Houston (in fact, downtown smells like fudge if the wind blows right from the chocolate factory).

It also doesn't require selling your first born to be able to afford to live here.

Eh... I always have a great time visiting friends in Chicago. I realize I'm not going to the worst parts of the city, though.

Having said that, the last time I was there, we went to see the Bruins play the Blackhawks, and I just want to know whose idea was it to put the United Center in the middle of what looks like a bombed out European city during WWII?

Yes, author. Let's do that. I mean, why do the libs keep bringing it up anyhow? Especially when it's a paranoid schizophrenic delusion.


This is what happens when you ban guns. Criminals run free, unfettered by the same laws that wind up leaving good people defenseless and dead

Bloody William: Is this another case of conservatives outright saying "fark you" to a major city just to make a political point that doesn't actually make sense?

Not that these geniuses ever think anything through but if we're going with the "you're responsible for all the ills of the city you lived in" logic, do they not realize Mittens is from a suburb of Detroit.

SphericalTime: Isn't Chicago kind of the capital of "fly-over" country? The big city that proves that not everyone important lives on the coasts?

I'm not exactly sure that painting the big midwest city as full of rape and minorities is going to click with small town "values voters" the way that they want it to.


Chicago is the last chapter in the first part of America's tale of expansion. Rowboats, Rivers and Railroads.

Part 2 is all about the new colonialism. It's not as triumphant. I like to stop right there and pretend that's the end of that.

Mrtraveler01: I never understood the hate for Chicago. I'd take Chicago over a hole like Houston or Dallas any day even in the dead of winter.


Come on. Houston and Dallas are havens for peace, love, and understanding among all god's children. Seriously, I'll take Chicago over any place in Texas. That place is America's sewer. Crude oil doesn't smell like money. It smells worse that shiat.

Um Chicago is also full of yuppies, gentrification, nice restaurants, good theaters, Millennium Park, the Art Institute, etc.

It is technically his fault, but he inherited the problem from Bush.

Large swaths of Chicago do suck bad - gotta be careful with what might appear to be a short cut on the map/GPS. A buddy of mine used to do a lot of sales work in Chicago. He found himself in a lot of areas where you just don't stop for the red light, and the cop that saw him do it didn't have any problem with it.

Most of the lakefront, downtown, Michigan avenue, etc. are pretty nice. You mightl notice though that at some of the big parks on the lake there is a certain time of day when it's like someone flipped a switch and suddenly you might realize you are one wrong look away from experiencing something very ugly and it's past time for you to leave...good times.

Chicago is the murder capital of America. There has been a 50% increase in violence in the past year. ... Guns are everywhere in the hands of criminals, while law abiding citizens are banned from defending themselves. ... This is what happens when you ban guns.

It seems Chicago's gun ban was struck down TWO YEARS AGO! Kinda blows your 50% increase in the past year point out of the water.

Keep in mind the power of a president to send money to his favorite town -- government contracts, stimulus, green energy "investment," education funding, and bailouts. You name it, Obama has done it all.

The House of Reps would like a word...
 
2012-06-26 09:46:31 AM
It's interesting how crime has steadily fallen nationwide since the early 90s, but there's still a segment of the population (possibly the majority) that is convinced things are always getting worse. I've never understood that, but I suppose it's more exciting to be terrified.

Yeah, but that's kinda true with every city, be it Chicago, Charleston or Chattanooga. I live on the South Side (Beverly neighborhood), and there's some really screwed up places 3 miles north in Englewood and 5 miles east in Roseland. Yet, where I live, it is VERY safe -- think soccer moms and SUVs, Catholic schools, etc. Obama played golf at the Beverly Country Club.

CSB Time: I was in Atlanta 2 weekends ago, and every place in the downtown area was teeming with bums. This one park by Georgia State University literally had 100+ bums just chillin' out, etc. One of the things that the cold Chicago winters does is keep the long-term bums away for at least 4 months of the year.

Yeah, that's Woodruff Park. There are several shelters in that area, one of which doesn't care if they smoke crack, don't get mental help, work, etc. Some hippy-dippy lady runs it and she's been tied up with the city in court for years.

Many of them should be hopping trains for points north now that the heat is picking up. The majority of freight traffic runs just south of there and there's a large train yard to the east. They'll be back in the fall and then off to NOLA or Florida for the winter. Some of them never leave of course. Never understood that. There's no way I'd hang around for an Atlanta summer outside.

Freudian_slipknot: Huh. I live in a relatively "tough" neighborhood in Chicago, and yet as a single, white yuppie female I've never experienced a single issue. Perhaps I'm just not loitering on the correct rapecorners.

Rule of thumb for not getting shot in Chicago any city in the US: don't be a dumbass gangbanger and/or hangout with dumbass gangbangers. Works pretty well for most of the residents.

The thing about it is the violent crime used to be concentrated in much smaller places, pretty much the public housing projects and nearby neighborhoods. There was a point in the 80s, I believe, when Cabrini-Green was pretty much a no-go area for cops since they'd get shot at by snipers and random people. Over the last decade they have torn down the massive housing projects and spread those people out around neighborhoods that used to be only sorta crappy with a big Section 8 program.

Corvus: People should stop talking about Obama, who may or may not have been born in Kenya, having been born in Kenya because Chicago is a worse place then Kenya, which Obama might have been born in. So lets talk about the white women getting raped there in the dark, of the black of night instead of mentioning how Obama was born in Kenya (or not) because being a legislature in Kenya--I mean from Chicago, he should of cleaned up the city from the dangerous gang members who want to kill you in the dark, black night, rape your wife in her white neglige and steal your stuff. So let's stop talking about how he was born in Kenya because we wouldn't a nubianrdly thing like that.

cman: I really dont think that this will work.

Problem is that Obama was never in any position to change anything in Chicago. If he was a Mayor that presided over its decline, yeah, I see how that can be used. If you are gonna attack Obama with this, then at least be consistent and attack CM Punk for the same.


The bigger question is, "when did Chicago decline"? It has some crime problems (much safer now than it was 20 and 30 years ago), but it is a pretty great city.

In comparison the crime rates are lower in other parts of the city than in others, but the "green" areas of Chicago wouldn't be tolerated in the "vast majority" of the country.

Frank N Stein: Chicagoan here. It's the Democratic machine politicians that are ruining the city. Anything that gets done out here has to grease the right palms and give the right kickbacks first and foremost. While Obama is familiar with the machine politics out here, he is in no way controlling of it.

Also, you out of towners can take your "but downtown is beautiful!" and shove it up your ass on your way back to Nowhere, Iowa.

That's not true at all. The "green" areas of Chicago are about the same as safe areas in Dallas, Houston, LA, etc... (you know, every major city in the country other than NYC).

Crime is generally isolated among certain areas among certain groups of people. This is also the case in every city in the country.
