    “A well-armed school bureaucracy is essential to a free people.” It’s the Chicawgo Way.Twenty seven paddles would serve them better.

    Archer pointed out awhile back that the IRS is armed to the teeth.What the heck are the local police for?Not to mention the dozens of other “law” agencies out there.

    It’s fun to see the 870 is still made.There may or may not be an old Remington 12ga Wingmaster 870 in my abode.It has threatened a few ducks,rabbits and a Mexican.

    Is Jim Belushi the new Principal? What's Lou Gossett, Jr. up to lately?

    Perhaps they are going to start a new education program to teach Chicago's youth how to shoot Asian Carp in the channel, thus eliminating the threat to the Great Lakes ecosystem and sport fishing industry……………um probably not.

    Or maybe they are gearing up for the fight against the school union thugs after they tell them "No more $1 million + retirement packages for the teachers……um probably not.

    Or maybe they are gearing up to defend themselves from disgusted taxpayers who have finally figured out the Chicago way of business and want to take their city back……..um maybe.

    These are weapons for sworn federal agents who use them in the performance of their jobs which may range from performing a search warrant or attempting to arrest persons committing fraud or other crimes involving your tax dollars. Be glad they are there.
