This summer has been the bloodiest ever. The death toll has reached 123 killed throughout the city between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1. Where is this city? The middle east? Iraq? Afghanistan? Nope this city belongs to your beloved savior.. This city is CHICAGO! This summer has been the bloodiest on record in Chicago doubling the deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan of American soldiers. Bring the troops home! Bring them home and deploy them in Barack Obama’s home town of CHICAGO! How can Barack think that he can save us all from the “evil” republicans that sent us off to war when he can’t even get his own cities people to stop killing each other? I thought he was competent enough. I thought that being a community organizer was all the experience that e needed? HOOEY! He’s no different than anyone who came before him, including Jesus himself! Where are the people of his hometown of Chicago when he needs them to behave? I know, out polishing their “bitter” guns!
Nearly 125 Shot Dead In Chicago Over Summer
Total Is About Double The Death Toll In Iraq
CHICAGO (CBS) ― An estimated 123 people were shot and killed over the summer. That’s nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.
In May, cbs2chicago.com began tracking city shootings and posting them on Google maps. Information compiled from our reporters, wire service reports and the Chicago Police Major Incidents log indicated that 123 people were shot and killed throughout the city between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1.
According to the Defense Department, 65 soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq. About the same number were killed in Afghanistan over that same period.
In the same time period, an estimated 245 people were shot and wounded in the city.
On top of being a VPilf she’s a great politicain, leader and role-model. Not to mention a fisherman, a hunter and a championship snowmobiler… But for some reason the Barry O camp thinks that they can criticize her for not being experinced? Really? REALLY?
It is pretty audacious for the Obama campaign to say that Governor Palin is not qualified to be Vice President. She has a record of accomplishment that Senator Obama simply cannot match. Governor Palin has spent her time in office shaking up government in Alaska and actually achieving results — whether it’s taking on corruption, passing ethics reform or stopping wasteful spending and the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ Senator Obama has spent his time in office running for President.
This is a politician I could get behind!
Democrat State Representative of Massachusetts said if children were on the witness stand, he would “rip them apart” in order to help acquit an accused rapist.
Rep. James Fagan, a Taunton criminal defense attorney, recently argued on the House floor against Jessica’s Law, a measure that would set mandatory minimum sentences for child rapists.
“Let me tell you why it’s so wrong,” said Fagan (D-Taunton). “It’s so wrong because in these situations . . . that 6-year-old is going to sit in front of me, or somebody far worse than me and I’m going to rip them apart. I’m going to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined. That when they’re 8 years old they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep. When they’re 19 years old they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody. And that’s not because I’m a nice guy. That’s because when you’re in court, and you’re defending somebody’s liberty, and you’re facing a mandatory sentence of those draconian proportions, you have to do every single thing you can do on behalf of your client. That is your obligation as a trial lawyer.”

He’s also on the, and I shit you not… House Committee on Ethics, of which he is the chairman…
The law is named after Jessica Lunsford, a young Florida girl who was raped and murdered in February 2005 by John Couey, a previously convicted sex offender. Public outrage over this case spurred Florida officials to introduce this legislation. Among the key provisions of the law are a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison and lifetime electronic monitoring of adults convicted of lewd or lascivious acts against a victim less than 12 years old. In Florida, sexual battery or rape of a child less than twelve years old is a capital felony, punishable only by death or life imprisonment with no chance of parole.
In my opinion when sum fucking scumbag like John Couey does something like this they should surrender the prisoner to the family. If something like that happened to my son I would want that. Give him to me. I just need a weekend, some duck-tape and a pack of matches. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
Here is Pelosi talking on ABC about drilling and on her decision to turn the lights off on the Republicans last week. She states emphatically that she will not allow an up or down vote even though when they took the majority, House Democrats proclaimed that…
“bills should generally come to the floor under a procedure that allows open, full and fair debate consisting of a full amendment process that grants the Minority the right to offer its alternatives.”
Apparently not on drilling. Who believes anything that comes out of her mouth? My question is this. The Dems. want alternative energy and say that drilling won’t help now. But in reality how far away are we from being able to use the “alternative energy” that they keep touting? I bet longer than it will take for the oil we can drill this afternoon to help. This energy crisis should be a driving force in the free-trade world we live in. Where are the solar powered cars, solar powered air conditioning units, natural gas cars? No where because they aren’t viable or even non-fiction for that matter.

This is weird… It’s something residents have been calling the Montauk Monster. It washed up on the beach. I think it’s a decomposed and water logged dog, but what the hell do I know.
The surf was rough, flipping the thing, over and over, and over again.
Jenna Hewitt, of Montauk, and three friends crept up to examine one side. And Hewitt snapped the camera shot heard ’round the world.
But here’s the rub.
Her group was the second on the scene that afternoon.
The first was a quartet of sun-worshipers from western Suffolk and New York City.
“It looked like nothing I’d ever seen before,” said Ryan O’Shea, of Brooklyn. “It looked like it died angry.”
