Re: “Blanca Luna's mother went to Texas but learned nothing about her daughter's death on an air force base

This poor woman. A further outrage for her daughter. Why is our outstanding military (I am an ASA veteran) so criminally bad on protection of its women soldiers?

Re: “Secrets of the Illuminati

i am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today… i was deeply 
strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for 
help from different corners but to no invail. i see people around me getting 
rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was 
very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it 
through out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he 
said to me. ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous” you need to 
cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in 
other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about 
this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i 
decided to look in the internet and i found an email address 
illuminatiworldofsociety1@gmail.com
so we decided to contact them and 
unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to 
get some requirements and all the rest… so this initiation took us just a 
week and later on the great fraternity gave us $100,000.00 to start up 
our lives…. and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any 
great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they 
are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email 
them now at (illuminatiworldofsociety1@gmail.com
) OR call the man who initiated me mr RICHARD MARK +2349052490510 OR WHATSAPP him through this contact+2349052490510

Re: “A piece of Lithuania in the heart of Chicago

Recently came across my Grandmother's Red Star Line ticket from Anvers & New York. The date on the ticket is 18 JUN 1906 and shows her age as 18. The family knows that her birthday was April 13, 1888. Agota Balnys is written as the name of the passenger. Having this ticket is priceless. I also found books and I believe a prayer book or bible in a box at my father's home. I hope someday in the future to be able to visit Chicago and the Museum, maybe even research other members of her family. Only a few were discovered in that box, Mike Balnis, Peter Balnis and Martha Balnis. I am sure more will be found. I was very happy to visit my Grandmother often with my Dad as she was only a few minutes away from where we lived in Queens New York. My Grandfather, John Latwaitis has relatives in Chicago also, one in particular, Uncle Chris. Reading about the museum has given me a whole new world to explore just like my Grandmother. Thank you to the founder for giving so much of his time and efforts to everyone who came to the New World. Hope to meet some of the relatives either through visits or email.

Re: “Cops in schools

I'm not sure cops should be in schools, though my (suburban) high school probably could have used a few of them back in the day.

But, let's be honest, CTU wants the cops out and the money to remain so they can pad out their memberships with social workers instead:

From the Sun-Times: "Stacy Davis Gates, vice president of the Chicago Teachers Union, which organized the march, said the $33 million contract CPS has with the Chicago Police Department to assign officers to schools should be terminated and the money instead spent on additional school counselors, psychologists, nurses and social workers."

As with most things in Chicago, it's all about which union is getting gored.

Re: “Most of the people arrested at the protests were Black

"Oh come on. I can't even choose not to comment about something without you making some sort of judgement about that?"

Dude, anyone who has had the misfortune of reading your comments over the years knows race and racism are your blindspots--I'm being polite. You attempted to change the focus away from CPD's obvious racism, which is something you don't want to acknowledge the severity of, to social distancing.

"Is it OK if I don't comment about everything in the world?"

Drama queen.

Re: “Activists say mayor’s police reform promises ring hollow

"And the people in a lot of Republican districts in Congress have easily chosen people who voted to repeal Obamacare."

And if a majority of Congress and the president decide to repeal Obamacare, it will be repealed--that's how a representative democracy is supposed to work. In the quote above, you seem to be suggesting that laws shouldn't be changed because voters chose candidates who promised to change those laws. Interesting.

"Why would you cite the chaos and indecision of Congress and not see that it supports my argument?"

The "chaos" you mentioned is accurate, but it's only accurate for a specific set of issues. Congress is extremely efficient at passing legislation that benefits corporations and the wealthy, expands surveillance, or increases military spending--like whale shit through an ice floe.

"As for your suggestions about the state and city being consolidated, that's absurd."

You provided the criteria for determining whether an agency should be placed under the control of a single executive, and I merely applied your criteria. If the result is "absurd," you should maybe revise your criteria.
