Top 5 problems with current "immigration" bill

From Heritage:

"History shows that big bills designed to solve everything wind up creating as many problems as they address. They become loaded with payoffs for special interests and often introduce measures that work at cross purposes.

The “comprehensive” bill fails at the start. Here are the top five reasons it cannot be fixed.

1. Amnesty. This bill grants amnesty. It creates a framework for legalization for the estimated 11 million people unlawfully present in the United States. Anyone who was present in the U.S. before 2012 qualifies, but there is too much opportunity for fraud—since there is no proof required that applicants have been here for several years.

2. Fiscal Costs to the Taxpayer. This plan does not account for the government benefits, especially welfare and entitlement benefits, that would be paid to those who are legalized over their lifetimes. The additional costs to taxpayers would be enormous. Some argue that amnesty would bring economic gains, but these would actually be captured by the formerly unlawful immigrants themselves. Legalization brings little economic benefit to the rest of us.

3. Government Spending. The bill is a Trojan horse for government spending, and in some cases, it appears the funding is unrestricted or ill-defined. Just one example is a $6.5 billion “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Trust,” which includes a $2 billion “slush fund” for border security.

Our federal government currently spends $1 trillion more per year than it takes in, so adding on a new, unlimited spending commitment makes no sense at all. The entire cost of implementing the bill has yet to be determined. Further, the bill trashes fiscal discipline, exploiting “a loophole in the Budget Control Act (BCA) that allows Congress to spend more than allowed under the spending caps adopted in 2011.”

4. “Border Triggers.” The bill requires certification of “border triggers” for stemming the tide of illegal border crossings before additional steps in the legalization process can proceed.

But the Department of Homeland Security has been trying unsuccessfully to define credible metrics for border security since 2004. Even if it had effective “triggers,” that does not guarantee a secure border. Border crossing conditions constantly change. Even if the goal is achieved, there is no guarantee it will stay that way.

Amnesty creates an incentive for illegal border crossings and overstays. Thus, the strategy laid out would drive up the cost of securing the border. Just throwing money at the border does not make sense. The policies adopted on both sides of the border are more important.

For example, the Coast Guard is significantly underfunded and unprepared. America’s coastlines are already seeing a significant increase in illegal entry by sea, a trend that has been growing since 2007.

5. Lawful Immigration Reform. The bill “modernizes” lawful immigration and non-immigration visas. These modernizations include substantially lowering “chain” migration; abolishing the diversity lottery; expanding the visa waiver; increasing high-skill migration; and expanding temporary worker programs.

Reforming the legal immigration system—in principle—is laudable. But trying to craft precise measures in a massive bill like this is difficult. For example, though it sounds innocuous, one provision in the legislation could lead to big problems. "

So, in summary: shut up Rubio

Longest Australasian Road Tunnel in NZ

NZ road construction is going on right now: they are building a 2.4 K tunnel which will be Australasia's longest road tunnel.  Check out the videot:

more info at:

What Auckland really needs is a new train commuter tunnel underneath the water connecting the city's main downtown business (the CBD) to the North Shore.  Hopefully that will be done at some point.

A train to Auckland's north shore is REALLY needed! It was needed 20 years ago... In the mean time, I look forward to the Waterview tunnel.

So God Made A Patriot

The Left: obfuscating for Islam

The leftist media is asking "why would those Boston bombers do such a horrible thing?"

I used to think there were no dumb questions, but that "question" really is dumb, completely disingenuous and hypocritical.  They either just don't care - are doing their damndest to NOT see the answer right in front of their face.  Their propaganda: annoying and tiresome.

The answer is CRYSTAL CLEAR to anyone who has done even a smallest, teeniest amount of research on Islam.  Muslims who commit terrorist acts are following Islamic Jihad - they are simply following what their "religious" book TELLS them to do:  kill all infidels.  Mohammad commands it.

So "true believers" of Islam - are all supposed to KILL non believers.  THAT is why they do it.

Leftist media and leftist "leaders" are purposefully obfuscating for Islam.

Jihad against the USA, the west, has been going on for centuries. 

Fox news has done a relatively good job especially when the hunt for the #ChechenJoker was full on after Sean Collier got shot, the car chase and death of Tamarlan - but I heard someone on Fox say the Boston marathon bombing was "the first terror attack in 12 years" meaning first since Sept 11, 2001 - WHAT??  This has NOT the first in 12 years in the USA - not in the slightest. 

Pamela Geller has a partial list here:

"BROOKLYN BRIDGE Iyman Faris, a U.S.-based, al Qaeda operative, planned to cut the bridge's support cables but was deterred, in part, by the NYPD's 24-hour coverage of the bridge. Faris sent al Qaeda leaders a coded message that, "the weather is too hot," indicating he could not carry out the mission. He was arrested in 2003, pleaded guilty and sentenced to federal prison.

SUBWAY CYANIDE - A plot to disperse cyanide gas in the subway system was called off at the last minute by Iyman Zawahiri for what he said was "something bigger."

NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE & CITIGROUP HEADQUARTERS - Al Qaeda plot to use vehicles to bomb the New York Stock Exchange, Citibank, and other financial institutions. NYPD tactical teams were deployed to high-threat locations, and vehicle inspections were increased in response. Dhiren Barot/Issa al-Hindi, an associate of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, pleaded guilty in 2006.

GARMENT DISTRICT PLOT The NYPD and FBI arrested Uzair Paracha for material support of terrorism in New York based on intelligence developed overseas. Paracha is reported to have discussed with top al Qaeda leaders the prospect of smuggling weapons and explosives possibly even a nuclear device into Manhattan's Garment District through his father's import-export business.

HERALD SQUARE SUBWAY STATION An NYPD undercover officer helped disrupt a 2004 plot to bomb the Herald Square subway station by lone-wolf admirers of Al Qaeda. Shahawar Matin Siraj and James Elshafay conspired to blow up the 34th Street subway station, including surveilling the subway station, choosing the location for their bombs, and diagramming entrances and exits.

PATH TRAIN and WTC RETAINING WALL A multi-agency investigation disrupted a plot to attack NYC's underground transit link with New Jersey in 2006. Law enforcement monitoring international chat rooms discovered suspects' plan to destroy a PATH train tunnel and the retaining wall at Ground Zero, to flood the New York Financial District. The main operative was taken into custody in Lebanon and admitted to plotting the attack." ... And: MORE HERE.

Just because the lying liars of the communist O-regime and their apparatchik's "the media" say "terrorism by Jihad" is not happening against the USA or the west, does not mean IT IS.

Islamic Jihad IS happening, has BEEN happening and CONTINUES to happen. Ignoring, being nice nice and coddling Islam - DOES NOT prevent their Jihad.  WAKE UP!

Daniel Greenfield points out Americans might want to refuse to be terrorized, but their government "leaders" sure aren't taking the appropriate steps in prevention:

"If America had refused to be terrorized, the Tsarnaevs would not have been admitted to this country or would have been shown the door once they started adding terrorist videos to their playlist. Instead Tamerlan Tsarnaev was free to slap around his girlfriend while his brother Dzhokhar was adding classic hits to his YouTube playlist like "We Will Dedicate Our Lives to the Jihad."

"(O and leftist leaders) Talk of refusing to be terrorized smacks of governments handing out coping mechanisms for preventable acts of terror. And once we start going down that road, it's worth remembering that the timeless coping mechanism for that sort of thing is Stockholm Syndrome. Indeed the old Stockholm cure is popular in the media which is already beginning to disgorge explanations of alienation that will show that Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev didn't kill on their own, we made them killers by not showing them enough love.

It's not the role of governments to tell people how to get over a terrorist attack. Nor is it the role of government to violate the Bill of Rights using the act of a lone madman as a pretext. But it is the role of government to stop an international campaign of terror by a fanatical ideology from reaching these shores using the blunt tool of immigration.

Refusing to be terrorized is as simple as refusing to accept more immigrants from Muslim countries. It's not the least repressive measure ever, but it beats interfering with the civil rights of hundreds of millions of Americans who are not members of terrorist groups.

The difference between refusing to accept terrorism and refusing to feel bad about terrorism is the difference between refusing to be terrorized and refusing to pay attention to terrorism.

There is no need for Obama to play Therapist-in-Chief. It's not his job, even if he is better at it than he is at his real job. His job isn't to praise the attitudes of the people his administration put in danger by refusing to give Tamerlan the boot even after warnings had come in that he was involved with Islamic terrorism. It's to refuse to accept the presence of terrorists in this country.

Obama obviously won't do that job. But neither did Bush. Unlike empty paeans to courage by politicians with none of their own, that topic is not even on the table. The terrorists will keep on coming and after each new act of terror, the politicians who keep the door wide open for them will praise the indomitable spirit of whichever city got targeted this time around."

Leftist media ignoring serial killer #Gosnell trial because pro-abortion

Ugg... there are 2 horror trials going on this week.  NZ's media is actually covering their Gosnell trial.  The NZ Gavin Gosnell trial is of an evil guy who beat up a 15 year old, left him overnight to die then dismembered him.

The USA "media" (and I call them that loosely - the are just lefist propagandists) is purposely ignoring the USA Kermit Gosnell baby murderer trial.

Only bloggers and online center-right media is extensively covering the USA Gosnell trial.

A comment from CitizenEgg on Twitchy sums it up pretty well:
"Tell the media that he had 'binders full of babies!' Okay, that's not true. They were jars. Jars.Of. Baby. Parts. Perhaps the people who were so interested in voting with their #ladyparts would be willing to consider why we're so upset by this murderer and his collection of baby parts."

JD Mullane points out local media are ignoring it in Pennsylvania

Fox had a bit of coverage - covering why aren't the other media covering this story (so not too much on the actual details of the actual trial, etc).

I'm trying to get the images out of my mind from post Kermit Gosnell's House of Horrors at The Brenner Brief.

Ugggghhh...  USA has a cancerous, satanic darkness creeping over it and infecting it.  Its called Leftism. 

Twitter users are pushing back with the #Gosnell hashtag.  Prepare yourself for the emotional horror, then go read up on the atrocities... and then re-think your "pro choice" abortion position.  Murdering a baby when its a few cells AND when its almost full term -> is STILL murder. 

Would there be media coverage ("if it bleeds it leads") if they butchered DOGS?  Of course.

Or how about guns? GOP Rep: ‘If Gosnell Had Walked Into A Nursery and Shot 7 Infants With An AR-15, It Would Be National News’

Dana Loesch says "Even If It Saves Just One Life: Abortion Regulation NOW". Nice play on the 'gun control now' leftist media meme being pushed right now.

Michelle Malkin pointed out the left's hero Margaret Sanger-pro-abortion-eugenics tie in back in 2012 with ‘To Stop the Multiplication of the Unfit’:  The Left HATES people and is trying to kill them wherever they can 'legally'.

Too many people on the planet using up resources doncha know is the loony GREEN communism position, too.

THAT is why the USA lefist 'media' won't cover the gory details of the #Gosnell trial. They believe in their culture of death - its A-OK with them - just fine and dandy...even if its racist!!

Ugggh indeed... I need to hug my pets now.

THANK you birth mother who chose adoption instead.  I'm on the planet because she chose adoption.

ADOPTION NOT ABORTION...  stop the death culture.

You should be properly disgusted with the Gosnell stories and media's ignoring them, but I'll leave with some happy images.... *sigh*

R v D: O's brain mapping project? Already done

I need humor... stat.

Did you here O wants $100,000,000 - yes over 100 million - get this: for a 'brain mapping' project.

Oh, goodie.  Perhaps that money could re-open the people's White House first, eh? 

Seriously, do not despair, this effort is completely unnecessary - as it has alread by done!  Found this over at The People's Cube, check it:

See?  We just saved America $100 million, yippeeee!

Murder, death not racist: just Left's modus operandi

The NZ Herald dutifully reports only LEFTIST American news outlet stories.

They describe the current Gosnell horror abortionist trial - as a "lynching".  Herald uses this racist word for the trial of a baby murderer. Does it matter what color skin the murderous doctor had?  Of course it does not.

If anything, more black American babies are murdered than white. Now that is racist. Black genocide IS going on. Margaret Sanger, who's "work" started 'Planned Parenthood' and their efforts to legalize abortion mills. These are places where babies are murdered - not clumps of cells.

They Are Babies.

So back to Gosnell - there is a USA lamestream media blackout on this story (pun intended). 

Over at LI, law professor Jacobson writes A Culture of Death is their Choice (the Left).

The Left always takes the PRO DEATH position.  The Left is:
pro abortion (death)
pro infanticide (death)
pro Islam (death)
anti God (life)
anti Christian (life)
anti Jew (life)

Yes, professor, you are correct: the Left IS a culture of death.  Even their 'animal rights' organization PETA who loves to yell and screams at people to 'never' kill or eat ANY animal - even PETA kills pets: they kill puppies and kittens!  Their Virginia facility? A 90% kill rate. 

So, the left is happy to kill baby humans and baby animals.

And who says killing atrocities committed by Hitler's Leftist-Facist-Communist regime could never happen again?!  It IS happening all over again in Europe and America - RIGHT NOW.

Commenter Frank says "Imagine being there watching your own newborn enter the world, alive, helpless, on the operating table being scissored and stabbed to death. Imagine the pain, of Jabbing a pair of scissors into the back of the neck and clipping/severing the spinal cord of the helpless baby, virtually beheading the tiny victim. I can't imagine anyone even doing that to a newborn gerbil, guinea pig, kitten or puppy, let alone a newborn child. My God, what has society come to..."

HotAir reports: “It jumped, the arm”; Update: Media score – Rutgers 41, Gosnell 0

Where is Evil = The Left
Where is Death = The Left
Where is Horror = The Left
Where is Lying = The Left
Where is Theft = The Left
Where is Tyranny = The Left

MSNBC calmly pushing communism now, no biggie

Have you seen this nonsense from a "professor" (at Tulane?!) no less?

Rush and other pundits have discussed it around the net.  Rush points out:

"... What's new is that she has total confidence in saying it.

She's not worried that a majority of people are gonna disagree with this. But this is Marx-Engels, Communist Manifesto. The nuclear family has always been under attack by communists, by leftists. The nuclear family -- just like religion -- must be destroyed, and in its place, "the community," the collective. So, while this is outrageous in its self-contained form, it isn't anything new. I guess one of the things that is the most frustrating to me is that liberalism and socialism and Marxism and this kind of stuff have been out there on display for people to see and recognize and accept as true for decades.

It isn't anything new. Yet in the past people would hear something like this and choose not to have to deal with it. That would have meant taking action, and it was much easier to say, "Nah, that's never gonna happen. I mean, that's just not going to happen." So where has that left us? All of these things we thought were never gonna happen are now happening..."

MSNBC is now pushing for full blown communism!  From the description on the video link:

"On March 23, my colleague Mark Finkelstein noted how MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry considers the unborn child a "thing" which takes a "lot of money" to "turn into a human," costing thousands of dollars to care for each year of his/her life. Now it appears that Harris-Perry thinks that, after they're born, children fundamentally belong to the state.

Narrating a new MSNBC "Lean Forward" spot, the Tulane professor laments that we in America "haven't had a very collective notion that these are our children." "[W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities," Harris-Perry argued.

"Once it's everybody's responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments." By "investments," of course, Harris-Perry means things like spending "as much in public education as we should have."

Of course, if as Harris-Perry holds,"[t]he cost to raise a child [is] $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year," and if children should be viewed as collectively "owned" by "society," then taken to its logical extension, a woman's choices about having a child should be informed by the economic considerations of the "community," would it not? But of course, that logic would take someone to justify, for example, the "one-child" policy in Communist China.

What's more, the notion of collective responsibility for children was a philosophy that undergirded the Cultural Revolution in Communist China under Chairman Mao. I bring that up because, as you may recall, another Harris-Perry "Lean Forward" spot contains a reference to a "great leap forward," which calls to mind the disastrous agricultural reform plan which starved millions of Chinese to death in the 1950s.

News Busters: MSNBC's Harris-Perry: America's 'Kids Belong to Their Communities'"

Umm, NO they do NOT.  That is simply OUTRAGEOUS! 

The real "war" is on KIDS via public 'education' and media propaganda onslaught.  A documentary was done on this topic called "The War on Kids".  Excerpt from their site, media relations press kit:

"THE WAR ON KIDS begins with the history of “Zero Tolerance” policy. In the 1990s, almost all schools began instituting guidelines that were originally designed to keep weapons and drugs off campus. Very quickly, school officials began to arbitrarily decide what should be considered a weapon and what should be considered a drug. Hundreds of situations followed where children were (and continue to be) suspended or expelled for possessing food knives, nail clippers, key chains, chicken strips, aspirin, and candy. Kindergarteners were even suspended for playing cops and robbers and using their fingers as guns. Under the guise of Zero Tolerance, administrators have been able to wield tremendous power without the burden of responsibility and this authority continues to be increasingly abused. Students invariably feel despondent and fearful in the Kafka-esque state that has been created.

The film reveals that students’ civil rights have been virtually obliterated. They can be searched, drug-tested, denied the right to express themselves verbally and in print, as well as be physically punished without due process. They are routinely deprived of protection from self-incrimination and in some circumstances can even be strip searched without the consultation of parents. Courts typically uphold the rights of schools to behave in whatever manner they deem appropriate where children’s rights are involved.

Ultimately schools now look astonishingly like prisons in their structure and operation and the film shows that it is hard to tell them apart. A side by side comparison in the form of a tour displays the apparent inferiority of the average public school with regards to prison in terms of its resources and upkeep. Most disturbing of all, the school environment is clearly much more oppressive and dreary."

... and now some in the "media" calmly push for MORE statism - saying YOUR kids don't even belong to you...

WHAT SAY YOU parents?!!!!

Reminder of 10 key planks of the communist manifesto -> CHECK OUT #10:

1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

The courts have interpreted the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868) to give the government far more "eminent domain" power than was originally intended, Under the rubric of "eminent domain" and various zoning regulations, land use regulations by the Bureau of Land Managementproperty taxes, and "environmental" excuses, private property rights have become very diluted and private property in landis, vehicles, and other forms are seized almost every day in this country under the "forfeiture" provisions of the RICO statutes and the so-called War on Drugs..

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

The 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913 (which some scholars maintain was never properly ratified), and various State income taxes, established this major Marxist coup in the United States many decades ago. These taxes continue to drain the lifeblood out of the American economy and greatly reduce the accumulation of desperately needed capital for future growth, business starts, job creation, and salary increases.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

Another Marxian attack on private property rights is in the form of Federal & State estate taxes and other inheritance taxes, which have abolished or at least greatly diluted the right of private property owners to determine the disposition and distribution of their estates upon their death. Instead, government bureaucrats get their greedy hands involved.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

We call it government seizures, tax liens, "forfeiture" Public "law" 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of "terrorists" and those who speak out or write against the "government" (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

The Federal Reserve System, created by the Federal Reserve Act of Congress in 1913, is indeed such a "national bank" and it politically manipulates interest rates and holds a monopoly on legal counterfeiting in the United States. This is exactly what Marx had in mind and completely fulfills this plank, another major socialist objective. Yet, most Americans naively believe the U.S. of A. is far from a Marxist or socialist nation.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.

In the U.S., communication and transportation are controlled and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established by the Communications Act of 1934 and the Department of Transportation and the Interstate Commerce Commission (established by Congress in 1887), and the Federal Aviation Administration as well as Executive orders 11490, 10999 -- not to mention various state bureaucracies and regulations. There is also the federal postal monopoly, AMTRAK and CONRAIL -- outright socialist (government-owned) enterprises. Instead of free-market private enteprrise in these important industries, these fields in America are semi-cartelized through the government's regulatory-industiral complex.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

While the U.S. does not have vast "collective farms" (which failed so miserably in the Soviet Union), we nevertheless do have a significant degree of government involvement in agriculture in the form of price support subsidies and acreage alotments and land-use controls. The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000. And I almost forgot...The Equal Rights Amendment means that women should do all work that men do including the military and since passage it would make women subject to the draft.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

We call it the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136.

10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

People are being taxed to support what we call 'public' schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education". "

15 year old girl explains 2nd amendment

You GO girl, this is a brilliant 15 year old!

This week in Chicago: 500 black youths riot posh Michigan Ave

What, you hadn't heard about it? ... Lovely reputation you're keeping for yourself, Chicago... just wonderful:

Rich Baehr at PJ Media has the scoop:

"It had been an unusually cold month of March in Chicago, but with the first 50 degree day in weeks, about 500 African American teenagers heated up Chicago’s Gold Coast on Saturday night. By the time the mayhem ended, 28 had been arrested, two women were beaten badly on a CTA train, and dozens of others were hit, robbed, or threatened.

Several of those arrested told police that the attacks had been planned and coordinated on social networking sites, just as in prior years when packs of teenagers assaulted, robbed, and terrified hundreds of swimmers and sunbathers at the North Avenue beach.

While Chicago media were careful to avoid bringing up race in the attacks this weekend or in prior years when similar assaults occurred, the video that was captured at the scene told the story.

The mobs fleeing from police did not fit the profile of poorly dressed, angry, underprivileged youths. The videos seemed to show rioters enjoying themselves, much like the supposedly angry rioters after the Rodney King verdict, who were seen laughing and smiling as they carried off their appliances from looted stores.

An argument could be made that for the vandals in the street this weekend, a character deficit trumped the more common “disadvantaged” explanations for the behavior on display.

The mayhem dealt another blow to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s drive to make Chicago a “world-class city.” He had backtracked on his new policing strategy in February after a bloody January with over 40 murder victims, ordering the police to go back to the “flood the zone” approach — first used on a large scale in New York City — which shifts resources quickly to high crime areas. The mayor had abandoned this strategy soon after he took office — the murder count rose 20% in the year after his switch, while other large cities saw continued declines in their murder numbers.

In February, the murder count fell after the old strategy was restored, suggesting that the policing strategy the mayor abandoned might have cost lives in 2012.

The city’s status as the murder capital of America, became national news in 2012 (Chicago had a murder rate four times that of New York, and more than twice that of Los Angeles for the year). The latest attacks on innocents walking the streets in the best neighborhoods of the city and on those riding the subway have further publicized Chicago’s crime problem – even internationally. Chicago is now linked with cities such as Johannesburg and Rio De Janeiro which have grappled with extremely high murder tolls for years.

The great majority or Chicago’s murders occur in areas visitors to the city never see. Most murder victims are the same race as their murderer, and most of the murders occur in the South and West areas of the city.

Chicago’s shooting rate is even more astonishing than the number killed: in 2012, approximately one in every 1,000 Chicagoans was shot — a rate 6 times higher than New York’s rate. In other words, New York has more accurate shooters than Chicago. If Chicago’s shooters killed with the accuracy of the shooters in New York, the murder toll would have approached 800 in 2012, not just over 500. This weekend was typical — 23 Chicagoans shot, but only two (so far) dead from the shooting spree."

Really.. .just great..pffffft:  Read the rest here.
