Forget homicides, Chicago focuses on
the menace of crosswalk texters

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

The Windy City’s population is falling again this year as nearly two residents per day are blown away by gunfire or carved to death by knives. [Snip] Mayor Emanuel’s machine City Council is focused on another critical urban issue: Pedestrians texting while crossing the street. Also talking on cells. Chicago is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants. But not for walking texters. With all the city’s other crime clearly under control, the proposed municipal legislation would have Chicago police officers monitoring crosswalks for “distracted walking” — pedestrians texting or talking on a cell within city crosswalks

Nothing to see here kids just another way to fleece the public of more of their money under the auspice of doing good. When government protects you from yourself it´s time to prepare to protect yourself from government.

Murderers, even if caught, get taxpayer money spent on them. Dead people pay no taxes or fines. Consequently cash-strapped Chiraq has to rely on getting money out of non-criminals.

3 is correct: catching murders doesn´t pay, but texting tickets do.

I have to agree though, that texting while you walk might involve you in the popular White-Guy Knockout Game.

Don´t know how it is where you are, but here between the suicidal idiots wandering into traffic staring at their phone, and the suicidal lycra clad bicyclists, it takes diligence and substantial temper control just to get across town without mowing down a few of them.

The emergence of two presidents
named Donald J. Trump
McClatchy Newspapers, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 11/14/2017 6:12:05     Post Reply
During the 2016 political campaign, with Hillary Clinton clearly headed for White House victory over her unorthodox GOP opponent, Donald Trump made the bold claim that he could change and become anything he wanted. “It’s very easy being presidential,” he proclaimed with the confidence of a billionaire. The first fifth of the Donald Trump presidency has proven the accuracy of Donald Trump’s claim. He can indeed change and become presidential — but only during his foreign trips as United States commander-in-chief and leader of the free world. We’re witnessing that other President Trump now during his five-nation, nearly two-week journey around

Americans’ worst fears are

In this modern age, Americans’ worst fears seem to be shifting sharply from personal safety to electronic security. See Also: New Roy Moore accuser: He sexually assaulted me when I was 16 Two recent Gallup Polls confirm this change. The first poll this month found that citizen concerns about walking alone at night near their home have fallen to a 52-year-low of 30%. The average fear level since 1965 has been 38%, the poll reported, with the highest level coming in at 48% in 1982.

Stand by for more Joe Biden than you knew you wanted. Two months’ worth. The aging VP, who turns 75 this month, begins his book tour today. I said, HE’S STARTING A BOOK TOUR TODAY! So, you’ll see and hear the loquacious retiree on the TV and radio shows of all the usual sympathetic suspects. Everyone will ask him about running for president in 2020. That’s the plan. [Snip] Barack Obama, who had much more ambition than political resume, chose Biden as his VP in 2008 because a) Biden was old and seemed to add experience to the ticket, and

Quietly, the U.S. builds its first
Army base inside Israel

In a little-noticed but significant move by the Trump administration, the United States has begun construction on its first military base within Israel. The permanent facility flying the U.S. flag will be independently operated by American troops on the IDF Air Defense School grounds in southern Israel’s Negev Desert near Beersheba. Its mission was described as defending against rocket and missile attacks. But it’s also both a symbolic gesture of the deep political and defense solidarity that both countries’ leaders have stressed and a substantive one, since it places an unknown number of American military members on the ground where hostile

Texas mass shooting may

It’s still very early, of course. But right now it looks like last Sunday’s killing rampage during religious services in Sutherland Springs, Texas, will also claim the life of the small, clapboard church itself. Twenty-six people, including an unborn child and nine other children, were gunned down at the First Baptist Church in Texas’ worst mass shooting. [Snip] So deep and raw remain the emotional wounds from that Sabbath shooting that Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his own 14-year-old daughter Annabelle, has told Southern Baptist Convention leaders that any further services in that bullet-riddled church would be too painful for

Guilty of desertion, Bowe
Bergdahl may get $300K

Now that Bowe Bergdahl has pleaded guilty to desertion in combat, taxpayers may owe him several hundred thousand dollars in back pay and benefits. [Snip] It might strike some taxpayers as somewhat goofy that Bergdahl could be entitled to a large sum of money for willingly walking off his Army guard post in Paktika province in mid-2009 and then spending several years in Taliban captivity. In a highly controversial 2014 move, Barack Obama, who wanted the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility emptied anyway, swapped five senior Taliban leaders imprisoned there for Bergdahl’s release.

Trump’s first midterms: How
he can avoid disaster

For the next 52 weeks you’re likely to hear that pretty much every single news event will have an impact on the 2018 midterm elections and President Trump’s political prospects. Some of that is true. But here’s a new overriding wrinkle to keep in mind: The most important factor deciding whether the Republican Party maintains control of Congress is actually President Trump himself and his behavior. [Snip] Off-year elections are actually a fascinating element of American politics. With no parliamentary vote of confidence available to grade a president halfway through a term, the biennial ballot outcomes for all House seats

How D.C.’s Democrats have become irrelevant

Posted By: SurferLad- 10/31/2017 10:23:25     Post Reply
Perhaps you’ve heard a little something about President Trump fighting publicly with members of his own party. The media loves these he-said-then-he-said stories of political conflict. They’re so easy to cover and self-destructive to the GOP cause. So they’re churned out day after day, enabling this president to manipulate coverage through mere tweets and dominate consecutive news cycles. What you haven’t heard much about is the acidic disarray among Democrats. That’s understandable. Democrats in Washington have become basically irrelevant. They lost control of the House. They lost control of the Senate. They lost control of the White House. This is

Just in time for President Trump’s visit next month, China’s President Xi Jinping has had himself elevated to a level of political deification unseen in the Middle Kingdom since Mao Zedong. At the end of a week-long Communist Party Congress Tuesday, the party’s new leadership, the Politburo’s Standing Committee, was unveiled in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. The line-up of six dour-faced men, all Xi allies, was split with the 64-year-old Xi standing center-stage. He was the only one smiling. No wonder. Unlike previous “collective leadership” announcements since Chairman Mao died in 1976, the new arrangement sets

Support for legal pot use jumps,
even among Republicans, man
Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Nearly two-in-three Americans now support the legalization of marijuana, a four percent jump in just one year and the largest support Gallup has found in almost a half-century of polling. Marijuana is still illegal under federal law. But with more states approving legalization in each election season, about 20 percent of Americans now live where marijuana use is legal. The newest poll [Snip] found that 64 percent of them now support marijuana legalization. When Gallup first asked the question in 1969, only 12 percent did. Support rose to 28 percent in 1978, then held generally steady in the mid-20-percent range

Led by Trump, Republicans set out

Even more than 40 years later, picturing Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland in “Start the Revolution Without Me” sets me laughing. At a royal masquerade ball around the French Revolution, decorously dancing couples, one after another, pass around conspiratorial notes to “Kill the Duke,” “Kill the Duchess,” “Kill the Queen.” Until finally, the note “Kill Everybody.” It’s much less funny, but that’s what the Republican Party seems bent on doing this fall, committing communal suicide to mark its historic election successes of recent years. And in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections. [Snip] Yet Republicans in Washington can’t seem to get anything

Former IRS executive Lois G.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate. “Whenever Mss.

The father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested on suspicion of shoplifting while on tour in China isn´t praising President Donald Trump for his involvement in their release. When asked by ESPN what role the president played in brokering his son´s freedom, LaVar Ball — a former basketball player himself and star on the Facebook reality series "Ball in the Family" — responded with his own questions. "Who? What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing," Ball said. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Ball in EPSN´s report on Saturday also downplayed

Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception.According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be

Kathy Griffin is coming unglued.

While editing ‘Vanity Fair’ in the ’80s and ’90s, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown confided some of her best dish to her now published diary, including this gem about Jackie Kennedy. Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83. Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died of natural causes at Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement. TMZ was first to report on the killer´s death. The celebrity-news site reported that Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon, said she received a call

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the

Washington - President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. (Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"

WASHINGTON — Maine Sen. Susan Collins went further Sunday than most of her Republican colleagues in expressing worry about the sexual assault allegations against President Donald Trump, saying they were one of the reasons she did not vote for him.“Those allegations remain very disturbing,” Collins said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” She added that she did not support Trump in the 2016 campaign in part because of news reports about women accusing him of unwanted touching or kissing.
