    Did you know that Chicago's crime rate has dropped by half since 1990?

    That's just libtard propaganda.

    The Conservative narrative on crime doesn't know how to deal with it.

    Presidential Libraries are built with private funds. The records in them are maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration. As to what percentage of the NARA's budget goes towards maintaing the records for presidential libraries, I don't know, but the entire agency operates on 391 million a year, and maintaining records for presidential libraries is just a small portion of what the agency does.

    As a native Chicagoan, I can't tell you how pleased I am to hear this.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

Anything that gets people more engaged in history and the politics that surrounded it is a good thing in my opinion.
    Its not history though, its worship. They have things in there like a feature on Bush's dog.

    Are you suggesting that is something to be proud of.

    Here you can check out how Chicago compares to the rest of the US. Chicago is a killing field.

    You can have Obama all you want and I hope like hell he moves back there next to his library. Further when he clears out of Washington I hope he leaves nothing behind.

    One less reason to ever visit Chicago in my book. Still amused he didn't put it in Hawaii.
