From what I heard Chicago is starting to resemble Detroit.
"World’s Most Competitive Cities Report Puts Chicago at the Top of All Major Sectors for Business Investments; Global Location Trends Report Ranks Chicago #1 in U.S. for Foreign Direct Investment"
Here's an idea.. If you're going to move to a major city, stay away from the Ghettos..
Chicago is a great place to live and start a business.
You didn't think that due to fewer murders and less shootings that gives any accurate picture now do you?
Violence reverberates through the city, even with decline in shootings, homicides
The staccato of gunfire an unrelenting reality for neighborhoods stretching from the West to Far South sides
It was just one scene in a city where gunfire has long been too common. In the first six months of this year, more than 1,000 people were shot in Chicago, according to a Tribune analysis.
The trends have been positive this year, with the number of shootings and homicides running below last year's tragic spike, but similar to other recent years. The regular weekly statistics released by Chicago police include the number of shooting incidents, not the number of victims. Even if an incident involves multiple victims, it is counted as a single shooting. But the Tribune analysis focused on the number of victims.
A quick glance at a map of these shootings shows that this violence takes an inordinate toll on a swath of the city spanning West Pullman on the Far South Side to Austin on the western edge. Night after night, guns pop and scenes unfold.....snip~

Two can play that game:
Liberals - Punish the Successful, Reward the Unsuccessful
Liberals - Tax, Borrow, Spend, and Give Free Stuff
Obama's legacy - National Debt / Credit Downgrade / Obamacare Failure / Economic Failure / Foreign Policy Failure / Liar of the Year Award / The Rise of ISIS
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
