Since 2012, the Chicago police have essentially quit counting a lot of the heads. it is sad, but true. This a very poorly researched piece. Google is your friend: http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2014/05/crime-statistics-chicago
1) This is a tragedy of human loss of life. 2) i refuse to laugh at this at this time... 3) But a few days from now, an appropriate time later, i am gonna laugh my butt off...
As a tactical commander: You do not deploy valuable assets where they cannot be protected. IE You do not send an Ambassador into any environment where you cannot protect him/her or provide protection immediately. By definition, the Ambassador should NEVER have been exposed like he was in Benghazi. When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

He was elected because one side saw Bush43 for what he was, a complete incompetent, and over reacted. They elected their own incompetent. I have referred to the period between 2000-2016 as the Barack W. O'Bushma years. They are both completely incompetent, imho. We need someone, anyone, that can just govern as an executive in 2016 to try and undo the damage the last two have done.

For several months now, i have watched in nausea and/or horror as Obama has started to look like other leaders who have told themselves subconsciously that they are done. When they admit that to themselves, they suddenly become free to do really crazy things. Things like the Border Dump of Illegal Children, Sending Troops back into Iraq, etc. Once he figures out that he isnt getting anything positive (in his eyes) done, he will then turn negative (punishing those not able to see his brilliance.) Folks when he has nothing to lose and nothing to really gain, he will likely go toward punishing those who cant see him as he sees himself. He may kill the Keystone Pipeline, free the GTMO Bunch, etc.
I laughed so hard i had people asking what i was laughing about.
Even if the HDD did crash, they had the backup tapes going back 6 months. LL's new PC or new HDD was up and running in a few days at most, not 6 months. Her emails would have then quickly been recovered back to her new PC or new HDD. I know about the servers ad nauseum I work in IT, but the STORY about the HDD just makes ZERO SENSE.
What is so funny about this is that the story line is so wrong. Folks, once the dimbulbs at the WH, the FBI, etc Figure out that this story is just a fantasy of untruths, they will have to act to give cover to those covering them. IE, Watch for some incredible event to happen, Either the server rooms in several building as are about to burn or get water damaged or there will be some huge crisis to drive all this off of America's radar screen. This story is damaging anything the WH had left as credibility and they will soon figure that out. If nothing else, Obama will be remembered as the Second Coming of Nixon. Being remembered as the Second Coming of Carter, that may be so last week now.
I apologize, instead of saying Democrats, upon further reflection, i should have just said DC. The Republicans are no better at all. For everyone in DC, the pattern is the same. Throw money, enrich your people, but dont really fix anything.
Despair, you are correct. These days it is the mantra, the goal, the ideal of DC: Throw more money at the "problem," enrich your friends, your contributors, your donors, etc. but dont fix anything because the next political wonk needs to be able to enrich his friends, his contributors, his donors, etc.
