More Tax Money Given Away

  • Three days after the Chicago Housing Authority reopened its waiting list for public housing, more than 125,000 people have signed up. The number is expected to keep climbing.

    The agency has waiting list spots for 40,000 people but has opened the application process to everyone until July 9, when it will conduct a lottery to determine who can stay on the list.

    "I don't think this surprised us," said CHA spokeswoman Kellie O'Connell-Miller. "I think it speaks to the need of affordable housing in the city."

It actually speaks to the failure of an entire way of thinking that you can keep giving and giving to people and expect them to have any pride of ownership, neighborhood or belonging to something bigger, better and beneficial to society.

But hey, if you keep people dumb, poor, ignorant and tell them the government is going to solve all their problems if they keep voting for one set of politicians, what would you expect?

You NEED to cover this Seattle PD incident. This cop was attacked by two people he stopped. He ended punching one in the face. Well the video hit the national news ABC and now his boss is throwing him under the bus.

On the radio they said the list was last open 10 years ago. 10 years and you still can't get all your shit in one sock? WTF

plenty of money for the welfare leeches but teachers are going to be laid off and taxes will go up... 7 years to go and I will never look back at the travesty that a once productive and beautiful city turned into... I can't wait to get myself and my family out of this shithole city...

Indeed, it is a colossal 'thinking error'. Civilized societies realized thousands of years ago that you cannot hijack the larger ideal of 'public good' and distill it down to the level of directly subsidizing the daily lives of individual people. You eventually create two, distinct classes; producers and parasitic consumers- the latter pretty much defines an enormous portion of Chicago's residents.

Chicago, more so than almost any other city, now has generations upon generations of people who know of no other way to live but taking handouts and demanding to be provided for.

This is why it's so essential- in a democratic system- that you not allow this mentality to grow roots, as once you do, they will only vote for those who promise them more and more freebies.


"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. "

Very pathetic.. I was a teenager when I came here in US, worked two part time jobs while I was attending college. I didn't ask for any help just a financial aid which didn't help me a lot. So, I joined the military (best moved I ever made) before getting myself in debt from college tuition then used my GI Bill when I got discharge.

My point is, why can't these people who are perfectly fit to work and go to school doesn't take that advantage instead of depending from the government for help and demands everything for FREE? What makes these people special from the rest of us who earns honest living and actually pays tax?

I saw the video in the internet and I would've done the same thing especially when the bitch got very closed to my personal space and my weapon. I remember back in the Academy when the instructor told us we have a right to hit (stun)someone in the face or head with an OPEN palm.

This was the idea of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. He predicted that these people would be voting Democrat for 200 years. So far he hasn't been proven wrong. Breeding voters has worked out for the Democrats. They feel nothing for these people or the people they affect. It is cold hearted and calculated social engineering.

After watching the Seattle police video can someone tell me where in the hell I can get away from these ghetto hordes?!

Chicago is gone. Long gone, man. Grand opening, grand closing.

After I saw a JJ Fish in the Loop I decided it's over.

In addition to the Seattle footage, they had that ghetto riot on the news at some concert in NY. So they got the East Coast, the Northwest looks compromised. The Midwest is out of the question.

Where can a rustic urbanite like myself find a decent place to live after I retire?

short answer: they are fucking retarded.

long answer: human nature at it's most pathetic.

there's a reason for the natural law of 'survival of the fittest'.

...Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn had said Wednesday it was “insulting” to the people of Illinois for Brady to bring in a member of the Bush family to cheerlead for him and thati former President Bush ran the nation’s economy “into the ground.” (SunTimes article, Jeb Bush says Brady should shore up pensions)
This Idiot Quinn, who governs this state, loaded with more agencies than any state in the union, and on verge of bankruptcy, overrun with cronyism and blatant thievery, shoveling tax dollars to any do-nothing community organization that can promise a vote. Keep raising those taxes & create a new era of public housing.
Illinois, The Welfare State- Land of Link. Now that's insulting.

VOTE REPUBLICAN - and maybe we all can retire with
a few bucks in our pensions.

The problem is the government fails to wean these generations of feeders off the welfare roll.

Why must the government provide a home for you? Why must the government give you money for groceries (LINK), for baby formula (WIC)...the government didn't get you got yourself pregnant.

The government should provide shelters in emergencies....fires, natural disasters, etc....on a temporary basis so people can get back on their feet. They shouldn't the the life-long wallet for people who continually cannot get their shit together....we are talking about generations of welfare leeches. This country (like this city) will become one big welfare roll...urban areas first, immediate suburbs and the country and remote areas. The gov is slowly squeezing the shit out of the middle class and the middle class will be non-existent in 20 years.

A family of four qualifies with an income of $60,000? That is crazy.

OK, I think the whole program is wrong, but $60,000! New teachers, cops, firemen, etc. would qualify.

I was in line at the Unique Thrift store at Montrose/Sheridan yesterday, and the cashier wouldn't accept a woman's $50 bill. So the customer, a well-dressed blonde-haired white woman with a heavy eastern-european accent, says to her: "Do you accept LINK card?". Like it's a charge card. So how does a well-dressed woman with a heavy accent (non-citizen, for sure) get a LINK card? (Shoppers at this Unique are a mix of all incomes and races.)

If you are outraged and fed up, stand up, speak out and vote is a FIRST STEP. We must take a stand, get out and support conservative Repubicans who will defend and uphold the Constitution, Liberty and Freedom. Start by getting involved in your local election process..donate to and suppport conservative a poll watcher, offer to transport those who need assistance/transportation to the polls...IMPRESS UPON EVERYONE YOU KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS VOTE IN NOVEMBER..REMEMBER NOVEMBER..AND VOTE CONSERVATIVE. You say you're outraged and fed up? Then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Do not become complacent and do nothing...get off your duff, turn off the electronics and get out there and take that first step...God bless the United States of America.
