Hasnt he stolen enough from U.S. its one thing for himRead More to think of spreading our wealth but why should we have to pay to spread his manure for eternity. Will Barry have pot disepening machines in his library? Ooops! Is the NSA and FBI reading these posts?
Independence666 April 18, 2014 at 08:01 am
What an absolute waste of money. Obama is, beyond any doubt, the worst President we've had sinceRead More Jimmy Carter, and now we're talking about honoring him with a Presidential library at the tax payers' expense? This is just a cruel joke right? Let New York pay for it. They love this fool.......

Joey Bagdano, why did you bring politics into this.....Liberal or conservative has nothing to doRead More with this. You must be a stupid republican. Back to the topic, at first I thought the judge went too far, but after reading what she did, and her snickering and eye rolling, I don't blame him.
tamarya April 18, 2014 at 07:50 am
If this was a domestic incident and she stabbed because he was hurting her then good for him. UntilRead More they protect victims of domestic abuse this is what shoukd occur and she has every right to laugh at what she did. Now if she committed a random killing then i side with the judge.
JDBlackhawk April 18, 2014 at 08:02 am
Give her a few more hot dogs and a few big gulps, maybe she'll explode herself and save the expenseRead More of keeping her in prison. You know what it's going to cost Michigan to feed her? I don't favor the the death penalty in certain circumstances, but apparently she does. And the judge-I think he showed restraint considering her complete lack of respect, obviously for not only everyone else but herself as well. Isn't contempt of court another felony or misdemeanor?

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

And another question the cops must now ask the soccer mom...."are you carrying a firearm"?Read More We really are becoming a police state and if Harriott doesn't want it, it's not going to happen. If she does what it (like the $700,000) underpass rehab at Deerfield road...she gets it.

The flight continues while the various committees waste our citizens time and money before going before the board that does what ever they want...except repair potholes.

DeerfieldWDog... "Always seem to purport yourself to be a communityRead More "know-it-all"...lol...it's obvious to me now that you have zero idea about what you speak.

Good work dawg...
Bernard Johnson April 17, 2014 at 12:26 pm
Pick'n up stakes. Let's face it - for all the reasons articulated by those who've posted heretoforeRead More and many more, Illinois is a used-to-be, fly-over, drive-around, nothing to see here - move along, dire state that is it today. You can't declare your state's and region's main city as a self-declared 'sanctuary city' - let alone without a referendum, and invite all sorts of 3rd World jetsam and flotsam into that city - they being with few employable skills only to become burdens on the criminal justice, public school, public health and other social systems, without consequences. Chicago's public schools are now predominantly non-Caucasian. While race isn't the issue, background is. These most recent immigrants and/or migrants to Chicago and across Illinois haven't brought with them marketable skills. It was one thing in the era of pre-technological society to promote immigration and migration into Chicago, Illinois and/or the Midwest of the unskilled and illiterate - at least in English. However, those were the days of manual labor when labor still drove agriculture and manufacturing required strong backs. Today's manufacturing requires computer-savy and even agriculture is driven - literally, buy GPS. Between robotics, voice-recognition software, computerization and/or the Internet's applications, the ensuing increased efficiencies across the board - in all manner of endeavors, makes such... jesam and flotsam [people] superfluous - at best, to the contemporary economic engine - one that's severely sputtering into complete collapse across Illinois. Yet, Chicago's and Illinois' political hack-quacks threw open the doors. Now Illinois is awash - from Waukegan, over to Rockford, down to Auora, Joliet and elsewhere across the state with those... unemployable and incapable of aggregate net contribution, i.e. those dependent on the ever fewer and fewer still standing tax-payers in the dire state of the State of Illinois. Whether it be the multi-generational and hopelessly dysfunctional African-American 'community', or the ever increasing numbers of Hispanic and Latino [as well as African] more recent arrivals; there's simply nothing [but dependency] for 'em here. At the same time, utterly irresponsible - to their host communities, corporate entities have squeezed and exacerbated the malaise. After half a dozen generations in Chicago, we're out of here. We've shuttered our business and are in the process of moving our residual assets out of Illinois. Our children have all been sent out of state for college and told not to expect a 'home' in Illinois when they're finished; and to look to elsewhere - outside of the Midwest, to lay a claim to their future. The pox - that which are both political parties in Illinois, and the state overrun with non-contributors - as it is [both those of people and corporations], will infect any who remain - the contagion is beyond mitigation at this point. The implosion is only gaining momentum. With Illinois firmly on a trajectory of 3rd Worldly consequence, why bother? "You load 16 tons and what do you get... another day older and deeper in debt." Illinois has piled it SO high and put us SO deep in debt that it's simply insurmountable. Let's face facts, we've met the enemy and they were us - the electorate. We allowed the hack-quacks to destroy us. Well, we're not sitting around to be the last ones [able] to leave and to have to turn out the lights. We'll leave the lights to go off on their own accord when there's no longer the capacity to keep 'em lit - as the debt burdens result in rolling backouts adn gangs of wild-dogs roam hunting for their prey. The Haitization of Illinois is well down the road to self-fulfillment. Adios.
