In an effort to boost Minority hiring, the City of Chicago is considering eliminating the entrance exam for the police force.According to sources at NBC in Chicago:
Dropping the exam would bolster minority hiring and avert legal battles, according to one source, while others confirm that the exam could be scrapped to open the process to as many people as possible.
However, the lack of an exam would make Chicago the lone major city without one, and experts contend that the exam is integral to eliminating unqualified applicants.

So how would they judge who to hire? Based on last name? Color? Political affiliation? Without some sort of consistent standard, it’ll just be a continuation of dirty filthy politics in Chicago, not that the exam and psychological evaluation hindered it that much. Of course one of the proposed benefits of eliminating the test is that it will save money in testing costs. What will it cost tax payers in lawsuits and other cost for hiring unqualified applicants?

This is just one microcosm of the world Obama came from, and an extension of his presidency. Have a conclusion and make the circumstances support the conclusion. In other words, if we don’t have enough minorities, change the conditions to suit that end, even if it is unfair, or has negative consequences. This type of a priori thinking is not in the sole ownership of civil rights and the left: It is used in business as well. There the line goes: You can make the right decision, or make the decision and then make it right. Basically it comes down to supporting someone’s arrogant agenda and decision making in order for them to be right. It’s the arrogance of power and conceit. Justice demands more than this.

Q:Why are Chicagoans Afraid To Come Out Of Their Homes?

leave a comment »

This is a real simple post.

Question: Why are Chicagoans afraid to come out of their homes?

Answer: Because it is the only defense they have.

Chicago, one of the most corrupt cities in the nation, has proven feckless and impotent in protecting it’s citizens. It lets the riff raff run the show, while the police play grab ankles with each other.

Why you ask? I have one supposition, no, make that two, may be, as to why. I am sure that John Lott could give a better account, but here goes.
Chicago, like other cities, has gangs. A lot of gangs in fact. What makes Chicago special is that these gangs are used to motivate and produce the vote, a lot like union thugs. Politicians use “community organizers” to liaise with gangs in order to get the people in a particular district to vote for a particular candidate. It’s the only way corrupt politicians in the 2nd most corrupt city in America can keep their jobs.

When you have such ties to gangs, which are basically organized criminals, it basically both legitimizes them and emboldens them. The politicians would rather sacrifice a few citizens and BS them later, than tackle the the real problems of crime, which is getting rid of criminals while removing their breeding grounds.

The second issues revolves around incorrect thinking. Call it liberalism if you like. Chicago is full of liberals that think all sorts of incorrect thoughts, like citizens are not allowed to protect themselves from criminals, and that criminals have more rights than free citizens. Such is the liberal dementia.

How is this manifested? The people of Chicago, and Illinois are not allowed to carry concealed weapons legally. Just like Washington DC, that other paradigm of a safe community, you just can’t do it. The criminals of course, don’t really care, as they and the local politicians are in each other’s pockets and hey, it’s business.

My advice is to allow the people, the law abiding people of Chicago and Illinois to be able to arm themselves and protect themselves. It’s a fundamental right and one that will be taken up by the Supreme Court. Until then, I have no advise for Chicagoans that is legal, except do what you have to do to protect yourself.

Until the SCOTUS decides this case, protect youself, and thank you for reading this blog.
