If you remember, up until the beginning of this year, yours truly would write weekly about the weekend shootings that took place in Chicago. And since I’ve stopped, has anyone taken up the mantle besides local outlets? Nope, not one. People are too preoccupied with violence affecting countries half way around the world than they are on their own doorsteps, and that’s a shame.

We live in a lawless “United” States these days, and it doesn’t take “the science” to figure out which areas are the feeling the pain the worst — big cities. And what do those big cities have in common? They’re all run by either democratic career politicians or far-left activists masquerading as public officials.

One of the most glaring examples of a city’s supposed “leader” putting activism before the well-being of their constituents has to be Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

On Tuesday, Lightfoot took questions from reporters, and it went so well for her [that’s sarcasm] that she didn’t even feel the need to answer.


Reporter: Mayor Lightfoot, every time you have a press conference you say ‘crime is down, the economy is booming —

Lightfoot: Well, that’s not true. But, get your question, sir.

Reporter: Across the street we had a police officer, on duty, the victim of a hit-and-run. We have Michigan Avenue, “The Magnificent Mile,” is now referred to as ‘The Mile of Fear.’ The Water Tower Place has thrown the keys back to the lender. They say they don’t want to be in Chicago anymore. Real Chicagoans are asking me, ‘How could you possibly even consider running for re-election as mayor of the city of Chicago after all the harm you’ve caused?’

Lightfoot: Um, I disagree with you fundamentally. Um, and I don’t think I need to address any and dignify your comments one second further. Next question.

Isn’t the practice of not answering for the failures of the city the problem that makes reporters ask questions like that in the first place?

Chicago as it currently stands will never change. It hasn’t changed ideologically in 90 years, except to continue to push what clearly hasn’t been working. But if that’s how the people that still remain in Chicago want to live, who is anyone else to tell them otherwise?

Go ahead. Support your own demise. We’ll remember the once great “Second City” for what it used to be and not what it has intentionally become.
