    🎤 Chicago, Chicago, that ‘toddling town…
    In a period of a little over 24 hours this weekend, 24 people were shot in Chicago, including three children under 13 — and three of the adults shot died from their injuries, according to police.

    Beginning at 4 a.m. Saturday through about 10 a.m. Sunday, Chicago police were investigating shooting cases that included the homicides and a mass shooting of six people outside an afternoon baby shower in West Englewood in which an 8-year-old boy was shot in the chest and back and a 10-year-old girl was struck in the shin.

    They say Trump is divisive. Indeed. Discrimination is a good thing. It simply means, “to distinguish this from that”. The Democrats are the party of the indiscriminate, muddling and blurring everything together, and going ballistic when someone states the obvious.

    • John Denney says:

      One must be careful discriminate between “toots” and “Toots”. One is sweet and the other noxious.

    Weird thought of the morning:

    Though unorthodox, the Hairatrix has the attitude, skills, and implements to discipline naughty curls.

    So crawdadders, where do you stand?
    From US News & World Report.

    By Jordi Lippe-McGraw
    The United States is filled with world-class cities and under-the-radar attractions worth visiting year-round. But when it comes time to settle down, some spots are better than others.

    U.S. News & World Report just released this year’s list of the best places to live in America after evaluating the country’s 125 most populous metropolitan areas. Several factors were considered, including affordability, job prospects and quality of life. Data such as crime rates, availability of health care and median household income was used in conjunction with results from polls. For example, they asked 2,500 people from all over the country where they’d prefer to live to create a desirability index. Net migration — how many people are moving to or away from each metro area — was also a significant factor when coming up with the final ranking.

    So, which cities topped the list?

    For the third year in a row, Austin, Texas, took the No. 1 spot. Although the number of people moving to the state capital has decreased, it scored high in desirability, and its net migration score was still higher than that of most cities.

    Colorado cities took the next two spots, with Denver and Colorado Springs ranking second and third, respectively. Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Des Moines, Iowa, rounded out the top five, proving that coastal cities are no longer dominating.

    “Our Northeastern cities, which are epicenters of higher education and economic development, are not growing nearly as much as places in Florida, California and Texas,” Devon Thorsby, real estate editor for U.S. News & World Report, said in a statement. “Plus, they are expensive to live in. Top-ranked places have the characteristics people are looking for, including steady job growth, affordability and a high quality of life.”

    While the majority of the top 25 best places to live are located in the middle of the country, the Pacific Northwest is still popular thanks to its tech boom. San Francisco — which moved up from No. 20 to No. 7 — Portland, Oregon, and Seattle all took spots in the top 10. Incredibly, only one Northeast city cracked the top 20. Washington, D.C., dropped to No. 19 after ranking No. 8 last year due to a decrease in housing affordability and net migration. Portland, Maine, was the next closest city, coming in at the 23rd spot, while New York City sat way down at No. 90 on the list.

    San Jose, California, ranks as the city with the highest salaries.Getty Images
    Florida is also a state of note this year as Sarasota debuted at No. 18, with the highest net migration score and increases in desirability, affordability, quality of life and job growth. Tampa also ranked well in terms of housing affordability, net migration, quality of life and job market scores, helping it climb to No. 56 from No. 75.

    Huntsville, Alabama, has the most affordable housing.Getty Images
    And there were standouts in particular categories. Huntsville, Alabama, had the best housing affordability, while San Jose, California, had the highest salary.

    In terms of the worst places to live, San Juan, Puerto Rico — which is still recovering from 2017’s devastating Hurricane Maria — ranked last again, while several California cities, including Bakersfield, Stockton and Modesto, filled out the bottom of the list. Not surprisingly, New York had the worst commute, with Washington, D.C., a close second.

      What the hell did I just do?😳

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Draw a line from Stockton to Bakersfield. Merced is on that line.

    • Somebody says:

      I’d agree job growth is strong in Tampa, but the traffic yikes! Sarasota is beautiful. Huntsville, AL is absolutely gorgeous, also areas near there such as Scottsboro. Lots of PHD’s in Huntsville, working in and around Marshall Flight Center. Lots of smart people with smart kids makes for a good school system.

      Don’t miss the museum at Marshall if you ever get the chance, MUCH better than Kennedy. Space Camp there is better too, and they have adult Space Camp and other adult camps like survival camps……if you’re into that kind of thing.

      I’ve loved Minneapolis since the time I lived there on and off for about 5 years in my late teens and early 20s, covering much of the area from downtown to Lake Calhoun on foot, and learning to sail on a rental boat in Lake Calhoun.

      • Jadzia says:

        I loved Duluth. Including the weather! Learning to drive there in the winter (I’m a January birthday) was an adventure.

        • John Denney says:

          Big empty parking lot, with no light poles or curbs, middle of the night. Great fun doing donuts, figure-8s, and power slides!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Love Colorado Springs, probably the best kept secret in America.

    While 73.8% of shooting victims are black, shot by other blacks, Bobby Rush has something incredibly stupid to say about the situation.
    See, this is why I say at times “Chicago, where police are the problem”

    should be an interesting read. will dems need fainting couch or not

    quick find him and find out what he is taking, he could make a fortune selling it

    Candace goes to Washington, Boom !

  13. Cisco says:

    CCW anyone? This area is known as The Magnificent Mile, now it’s simply Thug Alley.
    While the two thugs are black and the intended victim is white, don’t look at this as a hate crime s/arc.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Hopefully they’ll get id’s from the video. Little chickensh*ts ran when they saw the gun 😀

    • lateblum says:

      According to the report, there were 21 arrests on the weekend due to new regs that have authorized actions against “large” crowds creating mayhem. Think of how much easier it will make DA Kim Foxx’s job. Now she can just release mobs instead of one person at a time.

  14. helenk3 says:

    ok if the dems do not want to help them after major flooding now the guy wants to take part of their crops
    don’t facists ration food? Venezuela here we come

    I didn’t feel a thing. I did the last time though. My floor was vibrating and I looked around for something to hold on to. It was a scary moment and it was only a small quake. I’d hate to experience a large one. It seems like this one didn’t do any major damage.


    Magnitude 3.0 earthquake hits off Long Island coast

    • Cisco says:


    • DeniseVB says:

      We felt a small quake a few years ago. I was in the mom cave sitting on the bed and it shook. I went down to see what the hell dh was doing in the garage to make the house shake and found him staring at his truck. “It moved”, lol, a Seinfeld reference, but it was the truck that moved. That’s when I knew EARTHQUAKE ! I think the epic center was near Dandy country. Of course, Dweetie and Myiq are probably laughing, amateurs !

      I felt a 5.2 in SoCal when we lived there. And Richter is right, each point on the scale is 10 times worse.

      ❤ Teddy needs to abort himself.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I have a feeling her quote was out of context. What was the question for her to even bring up Hitler? Our own country was smitten with Hitler in the 30’s, cough, Kennedy, Bush patriarchs, cough. History is just so forgotten 😦

      • lateblum says:

        And this is why the Progs keep trying to rewrite history via book bannings and destruction of statues and memorials. Ultimately they will leave no evidence of anything remotely questionable about anything they ever did, said, didn’t say, or sponsored. That way when idiots and liars like AOC say Congress stopped FDR from serving yet another term as POTUS, there will be nothing to contradict her.

      I didn’t have the courage to post this on Twitter:

      This movie was so far ahead of its time it could not be made today.

      • DeniseVB says:

        LOL, love that movie. Even Mel Brooks said it couldn’t be made today in the PC world of the easily offended.

        “If you find Blazing Saddles racist, you weren’t paying attention. This movie is a balls-out assault on racism and American culture, and it’s got more fangs than farts. Few people can get away with using racist jokes as a weapon against racism, and Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor are in that small club. —Roy Ivy”

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      If he had fired a single bullet and killed one of the two thugs he would be the new George Zimmerman.

      • Cisco says:

        Absolutely correct.
        Once again the media would only show 6th grade picture of the thug, who of course was a aspiring rapper with a brilliant career ahead of him, waiting on his college application acceptance.

  30. helenk3 says:

    just wondering do today’s “journalists” play whispering down the lane instead of investigation to get their news articles?

    • taw46 says:

      I love her. She called out the Democrats for all their racism. I bet MSM didn’t show any of this to their viewers. Bless her grandfather for raising such a strong woman.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Our local (CBS) news just showed Lieu’s question about Hitler without her amazing response and fight with Nadler’s gavellng her, which she pushed back beautifully.

    Powerful, chilling experience today:

    • lateblum says:

      Fascinating, and well-timed for me, that is. We are just this week, covering the Holocaust. Thank you! Hope you are enjoying your 5-days away. ❣️

  39. DeniseVB says:

    No wonder PDJT’s approvals keep going up. The Dems have nothing MAGA going on 😀

    • AniEm says:

      Every candidate in the Democratic primary should be required to donate 70% of their salaries and assets to repay the national debt. Let them live their “truth” and put up or shut up.

      • DeniseVB says:

        AOC should also stop preaching her green deal while flying back and forth to NYC, take the Amtrak. Also, she drives to work every day from her tony DC apt that’s in walking distance of Capitol Hill. She’s the worst hypocrite.
