Wow, what a weird sheltered, isolated little pocket of ignorance.
Not like a christian former military guy, now contractor, living in somewhere like colorado springs would understand.
sounds like the party hasn't told them not to bite the hand that feeds.
what are they ignorant about? what have you observed from your in-the-trenches crackerville that these dumb urbanites need to appreciate?
"where I live still sucks, therefore the figurehead national executive who has very little to do with localized issues sucks at his job"
I didn't blame george bush for all the H2 accidents around here killing old ladies during ski season. We've suffered too you know.
I guess I could see a case for chicago/FEMA/National Guard involvement at this point. Not sure what else a fed could do.
remind me again: which one are you?
National guard wouldn't help in those neighborhoods. Nor will any infusion of money.
Until the residents abandon the us vs them, block vs block mentality, as well as the 'don't be a snitch' attitude, nothing will change. The majority of shootings occur in a relatively small percentage of a large city, and the vast majority of those shootings aren't random at all.
I have friends who still police those areas. They're seen as the enemy by almost everybody, young and old. I can't believe the national guard would be greeted any differently, nor be any more effective unless they start foregoing due process.
When Obama was first elected, the residents of those 6-7 neighborhoods where the most crime occurs were elated. They believed that the White House would be delivering food, clothes, money, cars, sending people to cut their grass and paint their garages. Not figuratively, LITERALLY. The Aldermen, Precinct captains and community leaders in those areas hoodwinked the residents like never before.
No amount of money is going to change things.
you lost me.

Ahh, gotcha. That's why I usually stay clear of the politics forum.
That was just a joke, trying to find some potential federal inroad.
