If you live long enough, you do indeed see everything:

Conservative Vice Lords? I’d hate to see the liberal Vice Lords:

At a news conference organized by self-identified gang members Thursday morning, several speakers complained that police and city officials do not respect them, and that the only way to curb violence is to provide jobs and improve their community.

The men who spoke out Thursday morning blamed poverty, drugs and a lack of jobs for the problems in the streets. They also said that Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis’ meeting with so-called gang leaders was a waste of time.

I thought electing Obama was going to put an end to crime and joblessness.

What’s the difference between the street gang press conference and a Pelosi/Reid press conference? The street gang members didn’t lie nearly as much.

    Didn`t Sheriff Joe "Bite Me" tell us we would be working with the "moderate" taliban ? Do Chicago`s gang members sing "Kumbaya" at their gatherings ?

    At any time, did any one of these speakers mention, "personal responsibility and accountability" ?

    Just sounds like more "gimmee-whining" to me……..but at least they`re not LYING !!!

    Rochelle Riley of the Detroit Free Press wrote an article complaining of the bigotry in the US and it is all because we have not given blacks enough money to solve their woes. So if we give every person of color a big fat check all these problems are going to go away. Evidently 45 years of spending billions and billions of dollars on housing, education, welfare, work programs and God knows what else – it is just going to take more money. Okay – got it. Don't change the culture, don't change the entitlement mentality – just throw some more money at these lovable thugs and they will play nice. Got it.

    As long as the welfare / entitlement programs are set up such that it`s easy to get in , but very difficult to get out of; as long as a welfare mother makes more givernment $ with more babies but no live-in fathers, it will be a very long rocky row to hoe toward changing an entrenched culture of dependence…….

    regardless of someones past, esp if they've done something in their teens and are STILL paying for it in their MId-30's, i think EVERYONE deserves another chance….another opportunity. Everyones so quick to BASH!

    Giving someone another chance is one thing. Taking advantage of that chance by walking around with your "pants on the ground," and selling dope, and hangin' wit yo boys all night getting high, and sleeping till 2:00 pm, getting the neighborhood hos (sp?) pregnant, sporting your prison neck tatoos, and voting democrat is quite another.

    How many "'nother chances" do they get, bleeder? Give us a number.

    He's doubled the length of his life and still wants to play the rebelious teenager. When's enough, bleeder. Give us a number.

    How many of your daughters are you willing to dangle in front of them, bleeder? Give us a number.

    All I can say is that there are a lot of reasons why I don't live in Chicago any more!
