It's an apartment building that Reagan lived in when he was a child, submitter. It might be different if it was a private home, but other families lived in the Reagan family's apartment after they moved out.

Plus it's the University of Chicago that purchased the property, not Obama.

So they're going to demolish the building one liberal lived in to build a library for a different liberal?

I'm ok with this.

I like that it will be a parking lot. For the Obama library. Some heads are going to pop off.

His next target? A Stuckey's outside of Valdosta, GA where Nixon took a dump during the '68 campaign.

I've driven past signs for "Ronald Reagan's childhood home", many, many times, and they were nowhere farking near Chicago.
They were somewhere along that god forsaken stretch of 88 around Dixon and Sterling/Rock Falls.

Though Reagan - born 100 years ago Sunday - spent just a year at the home as a 3-to-4 year-old from 1914 to 1915 and most of his youth in western Illinois, he wrote fondly of the gas-lit first-floor apartment at 832 E. 57th St

Nobody cares about this place except the hardest of the hardcore Reagan cultists. But then, Fox News Channel hasn't started running with the "Obama Chicago thug minions to destroy Reagan's boyhood home" angle yet.

Maybe hire some ex-air traffic controllers for the demolition crew.

I hope they build a Social Security office there, or better yet, a Mosque.
Once the teabaggers heads finished exploding, we could pretend they were just a figment of a collective fever dream.

Epic.  Troll.

The library should specialize in Muslim studies, just to give another giant middle finger to the Teatards who worship Reagan.

But, but, but... Chicago thug politics!

Holy shiat, this is going to be awesome. Maybe the Teahadis will be so outraged over this that the adults can get some real work done.
Oh, shiat. The one liberal thing I truly hate is on the agenda right now. Maybe we can wait for this to hit Faux.
 
2013-01-31 01:52:50 AM  
Some have said that the liberal Chicago establishment does not want a reminder that Reagan, a conservative icon, once lived in the city.

Well, that's enough to base a news story on right there.

Some people have said Obama is a lizard person.  Someone should do a story on that, too.

Ronald Wilson "666" Reagan?  The gun-grabbing pinko who outlawed open carry in California?

You see, statements like this really show that liberals are actually lying when they talk about tolerance. And every time you try to debate a conservative, or try to look down on a conservative for not being as compassionate, understanding, or tolerant as you or your enlightened liberal friends, always remember that you undermined your own argument and shined a bright spotlight on the falsehood of you claims of superiority. Thank you for making my job easier anytime I need to show liberals as the truly small, spiteful, bitter, and petty assholes you all really are.

I heard it's going to be a carpool parking lot and will be restricted to full-electrics and plug-in hybrids.

Chicagoland as an area loves to tear down its history. Now I don't think this particular building qualifies as anything special in the grand scheme of things, but if you take away the Reagan link, it is just another in a never ending line if perfectly good buildings that are torn down each year in favor of something else.

It goes on all over the place, but I have never seen it quite as rampant as in Illinois. Could be wrong though.

Then again, maybe it is a really crappy building infested with bed bugs and cockroaches. Plus it may interfere with UofC's Ugly Building Initiative like the fugly thing to the right.

They should make it secure parking for the Ronald Reagan Memorial Abortion Clinic. Set it up so abortion protesters can't get near the patients.

Which just gave me an epiphany. All these Stand Your Ground laws, all those extremely hostile abortion protesters, I think that's a winning combination.

Not sure if serious

If serious: "Tolerance" does not mean loving everyone and only saying nice things.  You can think someone sucks and still be tolerant.
