  1. Sad! So Sad! It's only March and the death & destruction is already starting.

    What does this say about the coming Spring and Summer?

    The details on these matters are not yet available, but who is going to make excuses for these criminals?

    Listening to the debates with the Illinois 34th District Rep candidates, most of them are for Concealed Carry (at least the two policemen candidates definitely are).

    The fact that policemen are for Concealed Carry should trigger an alarm in your head. What horrors do policemen know that you don't?

    When will the Black intellectuals and the Black politicians allow the public to practice its legal and self-preservation rights to bear arms.

    I'll answer this.... NEVER!!

    As long as the Mayor, the Governor, and the Speaker control the money given to these country dumb Black politicians, we are DOOMED!! Please vote out these Black politicians, so Emanuel, Quinn, and Madigan don't control your lives... literally!

    Let's not forget the foolishness of our Black intellectuals, community activists, cowardly radio hosts, corrupt preachers, and a certain loud mouthed White messiah priest.

    Every gun ban that has existed in this country has always involved Black people. Just YouTube or Google the term, "No Guns For Negroes", and watch the video. Wake up, fools!

    Even if you hate guns, do you really want your loved ones to die horribly at the hands of these criminals because they weren't allowed to protect themselves with guns? And don't give me this "all guns should be banned" fantasy. That's not reality.

    My heart goes out to these victims. Please, keep them in your thoughts and fight to end these horrors in our communities.
