Leftwing Chicago Mayor Begging Large Companies Not to Flee the City

Leftwing Chicago Mayor Begging Large Companies Not to Flee the City

Now that the riots have made big city existences untenable, more and more companies are considering fleeing entirely. We cannot say that we blame them for what they are contemplating. How can a company feel safe in a city where the leadership is perfectly fine with allowing their establishments to burn to the ground?

Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago is facing this dilemma now. She’s created an environment where large companies do not feel safe but she is not willing to make the necessary adjustments. She’s been reduced to begging them to stay. Residents cannot even get the items that they need in a timely manner and these companies are also responsible for much-needed tax revenue that Chicago relies upon.

A recent conference call with big-box retailers went very poorly. Wal-Mart’s higher-ups are understandably furious about all of the damages that have taken place. Lightfoot is doing her best to plead with them to stay. It remains to be seen as to whether these efforts are going to be successful. She’s about to be fighting an uphill battle.

Mayor Lightfoot Pleads With Walmart, Other Retailers To Not Abandon Chicago

Mayor Lightfoot said she’s hopeful major retailers will reopen the Chicago stores that were looted or otherwise damaged during protests surrounding George Floyd’s killing by police in Minnesota. But, she’s unsure of one of the biggest.

Mayor Lightfoot said she was on a conference call with Walmart and other major retailers that had stores looted or heavily damaged during the unrest in Chicago. She said she pleaded with them to not abandon Chicago.

“I think in the case of Walmart, what they were focused on was assessing the damage. They are doing an effort to donate fresh produce, to the extent of what’s left so it doesn’t perish, and other perishables, and they are taking their time, as I would expect.”

Wal-Mart is currently taking their time to assess the damages. If there is any produce left that can still be salvaged, they plan on offering up donations to local folks in need. Lightfoot expects them to thoughtfully consider her proposals but she acknowledges the possibility that they may still decide to leave. We would not blame them in the slightest.

Minneapolis businesses must now make the same type of considerations. Their concerns are compounded by the fact that the city is in the process of disbanding their police force. A manufacturing company that has been in Minneapolis since 1987 has already decided to take off. The owner of the company claims that they can no longer trust public officials to do the right thing, in the wake of the rioting.

If business owners have reason to believe that local officials do not have their best interests at heart, what is their motivation to stay in the cities that are essentially rejecting their concerns out of hand? Once these cities drive away all of their tax revenue, where is the money going to come from? These are questions that no one on the left is willing to answer. They do not have a good reply.

They simply say what sounds good in the moment. When cities are starting to crumble because they do not have access to the same tax revenues, the same leftists will be crying foul because their taxes have been raised. The cities that have been damaged by the riots are going to be carrying their scars for some time.

The same leaders who were willing to turn a blind eye to the destruction were not willing to think it through. Standing with the protesters probably seemed like a great idea in the moment. However, cities are now going to be forced to placate the business owners that they have been ignoring over the past few weeks. Tough decisions need to be made but the snowball has already started rolling downhill.

There is nothing that can be done to reverse what has already taken place. All city officials can do now is try their best to rally around the business owners that are now threatening to leave. They need to take a moment to place themselves in the shoes of the business owners. These folks have already lost so much and now they are being told that they are going to have to shell out for their own security going forward.

Violence that is sponsored by the state should be cleaned up by the state. Either way, it is going to be fun to watch these officials start to backpedal and beg companies to stay. They are going to be talking out of both sides of their mouths and we’ll get to see who is willing to fall for their rhetoric.

    1. Something smelled in Flint Michigan… and it was oops… the drinking water. Flint was removed from Great lakes water to that cesspool known as the Flint River, so that the Flint automotive industry could have water from the Great Lakes, and not the families in Flint. Eventually, it drove Rick Schneider, the Republican fuelling this scandal, lost his seat to a democrat.
      SO YOU ARE SAYING…. COME TO MICHIGAN….??? So you can bring back lead laced water????

      So, just how much of your city’s or counties clean water, air, infrastructure, are you willing to hand over to manufacturing or other industry, without any controls? THAT IS YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE, and they will leave you once they pollute you out of existence. And why oh why is the republican party unraveling protections of your national resources and reserves all over the US. Why? the stripping of national resources will ruin your children’s future on many levels.

      “Businesses and industries care about quality of life and want their employees to locate into communities that have good air and good water,” said Cohen researcher at Vanderbilt.

      More research is needed to devise specific steps to decrease air and water pollution and conserve the state’s public lands in the next decade. However, the most effective answers will be creative, subtle and rely on such techniques as incentives, education and increased collaboration, according to the papers. Among the potential solutions identified by the Vanderbilt researchers:

      1. Flint? You mean the one ran by Democrats for ever and ran GM out of town? The one that was told not to switch water systems by the state? That one? Try reading something other than where you get your talking points from before mushing on. I live in this great state and you think this Governor who just got done destroying so many self reliant small businesses with her rediculouse and draconian executive orders is the way to go?! Ya, ok!

    2. Chicago being led by a incompetent mayor, who said is was the rioters rite to destroy and burn down your businesses , then we have a corrupt governor . Why is it that all the major riots are only in democrat led state and city’s.

  1. dumbass Racists Bit-h Mayor of Chicago I hope all the big companies leave. You are a disgrace and you support Black Lives Matter

    1. Lighthead is a LESBIAN MORON!!! She did not care about the businesses that were being destroyed by so called peaceful protesters. She was more concerned with antifa & blm. She has no idea how to protect or run a city. We also have a fat useless governor. Illinois is in such a disastrous situation, that’s why so many businesses & people are leaving the state.

    3. Gee…. Larry… I have never seen Ms.Lightfoot ever utter a word about her culturally diverse population that could be considered racist.
      ]
      YOU HOWEVER…. are a disgrace.

    4. I’m with you Larry! I just feel so sorry for those people & bus. owners in those states! After years & years of paying taxes & bending to city government & code enforcement, basically “legal extortion” their cities do not even deserve to host ANY BUSINESSES!! ONLY WAY I’D STAY IS IF THE CITY REBUILT MY BUSINESS AND FORGAVE ALL TAXES FOR TWO YEARS!

  2. These governors and mayors have to turn their seats over to Republicans, and these companies might rebuild.
    With President Trumps guidance these states will be able to come back together.

    1. I agree, the democrats could care less about the ppl or the business’s I hear all the protesters that got arrested are getting off. How sad is that. If I weren’t 76 and handicapped I would join the next protesters and get me some free loot. You business’s know, this isn’t over, right. Now that the BLM knows the police are at the bottom of the pile and have been kneeling with them they will come back and protest the minute ANY COP so much as says All lives matter. I’m sorry but if I were Floyd’s mama I would have taken offense to everyone kneeling for him, all I could see when they all kneeled was that horrible look on his face. Who the hell gave the order to kneel. Omg I bet his mama was turning in her grave. This was the worst protest and definitely not a peaceful one , it was more of a free for all to go after the cops. It was wrong what the cops did but it was/ is more wrong that demicrat governors n mayors encouraged the protesters, and all over a man that was under arrest and was on drugs and fighting to not get in the car. When they are on drugs they are 3 times stronger. I thank the Lord I don’t live in your town. May all the innocent dead , REST IN PEACE AMEN

      1. dear john,
        your republicans have had 4 years to dismantle healthcare and infrastructure, and they have almost succeeded. Why would they do anything besides hand the rest off to their billionnaire sponsors. In this, you ought to be aligned with some aspect of protesters, but none of us are with the looters.

        Looters are predatory to the story of BLM.., and any other protest of recent memory, going back to 1940’s. Some of them are Trump’s own, as a matter of fact, like the support the president gave to the Buffalo police, lying about that 75 year old man in Buffalo, who was seen on camera returning an object to the police, just prior to him being pushed to the ground and left to bleed.

        Shoot Americans without judge or jury??. Shoot for a slim jim? Shoot for a $20 phony bill. Maybe a TV, but isn’t that easy enough to stop the theft of a big object? Isn’t that part of the problem, shooting to kill without other remedies, and without judge and jury?? Police and these stores have cameras and equipment to identify looters. Please make distinction between looters and protesters. They are obviously not the same. So why are the police targetting peaceful protesters?

        1. LMAO…John, there was nothin wrong with the healthcare in this country. Then your nigger Bama fucked it all up, doing his Hitler impersonation. Hitler did it first. Government controlled healthcare.

          1. Dear Gerald S Ladd,
            that would mean that you would wish to eleminate medicare and medicaid???? does everyone here agree?
            If you were well read, you would know that the big rush to unaccountable healthcare payors started with Nixon and Kaiser Permanente. Kaiser was a dirty word for a number of years, and may still be. Haven’t kept up with it.
            So, Gerald, if you do not have Medicare, or medicaid, then you have either no healthcare, or a policy that must protect you even if you have pre-existent conditions, and cannot give you a low lifetime cap which would eliminate healthcare for you altogether. Aren’t you glad for that. And much else besides… because reforms were i the works before the republicans almost completely unraveled obamacare and all of its provisions, with no replacement plans.
            Do you have a pre-existent condition? Well you will have one after covid 19, and not just for your lungs, but kidney failure, clotting disorders, cardiac disorders, strokes…. all pre-existant, and pretty soon, you won’t be able to get an insurance policy anywhere until you reach the age of medicare, which you disapprove of.
            what say you…. your ignorance is overwhelming.

          2. Various aspects of ObamaCare have already been enacted, including: regulations on insurance companies prohibiting them from placing lifetime limits on coverage and requiring them to provide coverage for all applicants, at similar rates, regardless of gender or any pre-existing conditions; and mandating that all existing health insurance plans extend coverage to non-dependent children up to age 26.

            Two key features of the law that will begin in 2014 are the “individual mandate” and the “employer mandate.” The individual mandate will require anyone not covered by an employer-sponsored health plan or a public insurance program like Medicaid, Medicare or the Department of Defense’s TRICARE program, to purchase a private health insurance policy from a list of government-certified packages, or pay a penalty for not doing so.
            Is this what you mean by “Hitler”, because I assure you, Hitler did not promote healthcare, and anyone who didn’t like it could end up in the gas chamber, or a work camp.
            Please look up Nixon and Kaiser Permanente. All insurances , in order to work, have to have a l arge pool of applicants, to offer benefits. You know… it is mandatory to have car insurance due to need for FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY , and I don’t see you b….tching about that, in terms of Republican and Democratic states which all issue those edicts… and the fact that you think you are in a police state.
            Oh… you are in a police state with Trump at the helm, but since he speaks your language, you think he will pull you out of your situation. He won’t. He is that crude.

        2. Hey Nellie,
          Why don’t you take a ride with the police sometimes. 3 shifts and I’ll bet you will change your mind about the police. You Lefties set back with no knowledge of what you talk about and bash the very people who put their lives on the line every day to protect your dumb asses.
          Do you have the guts to take that ride, Nellie ? I’ll bet you do not but you will continue to run your big mouth about something you know nothing about.

        3. Did you forget that during the Chicago Seven riots in 1968 Democratic Mayor Daley gave the order that looters would be shot.

      2. Dear Elizabeth,
        what you said is not true… either about the democrats or that … did you say protesters got arrested? You should not get arrested for protesting…. however, looting is a crime, and not the same thing.

        Frankly my dear…. I am nearly your age, working a full time job with one lung and arthritis and get out and join the protesters from time to time. You might need to “woman” up.

  3. How can they expect business’s to want to rebuild in their cities? Also, how can they allow this and talk about desmantling, or defunding their Police Departments, and expect people to feel safe.? How can they let these Antifa, and BLM rioters destroy their cities, and then ask President Trump to help them, and the Country bail them out.? No leadership at all in these Democratic run cities. Get out while you can! Move to the South where there is still common sense people, and neighbors that stand together and protect each other. Regardless of what the mindless politicians say, we don’t RUN, nor do we HIDE! We don’t cause the trouble, but we know how to STOP IT!!!

    1. It depends what part of the South Spencer. I live in Louisiana, about three hours east of Houston and four hours west of New Orleans. But I wouldn’t live in either of them or any other big city. I love Dixie, but the big cities have become nothing more than extensions of the left wing west coast and north east.

  4. democraps have destroyed this country time to get rid of the trash and put replublicans in to let these citys rebuild now!! Time to get rid of democraps antiamerican ideas! prosicute rioters and looters , or shoot them !

    1. John I agree with you but I heard they already let the looters n rioters out of jail, no issues there. The only ones getting in trouble were the ones on camera shooting someone and the man handing out bombs to teens and telling them to throw them at the cops. Even the old man that stepped in front of the cops marching in formation and was hitting the cop on his arm , sorry he got pushed but when did it become ok for anyone old or young to hit a cop let alone stop him in his tracks I too would have pushed some away if I were being hit and didn’t know what the person had in mind. I’ve seen too much going on here that looks off , they didn’t hardly push him and he kept pushing himself back until he fell I’m sure he didn’t plan on hitting his head but an expert needs to study that tape. And where and who was the person that happened to be there taking that video. That needs to be addressed. . I am so tired of the way ppl treat each other but this protest should have been over long ago since the cops were already charged .it hasn’t been about Floyd for quite awhile. The terrorists RIOTERS in the am probably never even knew Floyd’s name. The Democrat governors n mayors encouraged these protests and still are I hope all their big business go elsewhere.

      1. dear Elizabeth Naples,
        if you are talking about the 75 year old man saying something to one of the police… and got tossed back and on his head….what news cycle are you on? If you are not talking about the 75 year old…. who are you talking about.???

        The man of 75 years was not hitting anyone. … although when he got pushed, I suppose you could twist that into saying it was a contact… but the contact was initiated by the police. Did you actually see the film?

        If you saw the film…. what did you think about Trump’s “biggest” inauguration crowd ever? Of did you not see that one either?

        1. NEVER EVER TOUCH OR GET IN FRONT OF POLICE OE ARMED FORCES! PERIOD END OF STORY! ESPECIALLY A MARCHING IN FORMATION GROUP LIKE IN THE VIDEO. THE DUDE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER! HOW IS IT THAT CHILDREN ARE SMARTER THAN A 70YR OLD GUY!

  5. KARMA IS A MOTHERf**KER
    How does it feel to be cut down from your Queer Throne!
    You are on your own until you are REMOVED ASAP.
    Enjoy the scenery bitch********
    DEMONCRAPS are full of LIES.

    1. That’s what happen when only black lives matter.u made ur choice to protect criminals over citizen and businesses. Cant have u cake and eat it too.who is racist.

  6. I for one do not want my tax dollars used to bail out the Democratic states that helped these rioters to destroy their cities. Let the Hollywood elite rebuild for you instead of bailing out the rioters to continue destroying this beautiful country. The Lord is watching.

    1. Dear Shirley
      So which state are you from that your taxes would be used to bail? I am publishing the tax contribution California makes to the federal budget, which is the largest in the US.
      As of the most recent tax year for which figures were available (2017), Californians paid over $234 billion in federal income taxes. That’s about 15% of the national total, and nearly 95 times as much as paid by residents of Vermont.Mar 17, 2020

      New York is #3 in contributions, Texas no. 2. Where does your state fall, because obviously many americans are relying on Democratic state dollars, eh?

        1. Dear Gerald S Ladd,
          nice try. You would be talking about California’s unfunded pension fund for state employees. How is your state doing on this(?) because there are only two states out of 50 that are funded.
          Let us not distract without providing basic info. So how much is your state contributing to the federal budget, used by all 50 states???
          Here is some information on state funding deficits FOR PENSION PLANS FOR STATE EMPLOYEES; (now see, isn’t it nicer to identify your facts and give a clear direction”
          Basically, none of us should want to be in Kentucky, which is a big taker from the national budget anyway….. you wouldn’t be from Kentucky, would you?

          Kentucky faces the largest deficit, with its plans only 34 percent funded. New Jersey follows at 36 percent funded, with Illinois only slightly better at 38 percent. According to Pew, these three states each increased their pension contributions in 2017—enough to slightly improve their funding ratios, but not enough to keep their debts from increasing.

          Pension plans in Wisconsin and South Dakota are in the best shape, with funded ratios of 103 and 100 percent, respectively. Tennessee is right behind with a 97 percent ratio.

          Twenty states have pension plans that are less than two-thirds funded, and five states have pension plans that are less than 50 percent funded.

  7. Accountabiltiy must result from ill-advised if not dumb decisions to allow urban rioting & wanton anarchy.
    Such devastation has consequences in daily life, commerce & governance. Adverse impacts fall on their local residents from job losses, deprived nearby shopping, business flight & reduced tax revenues.
    Oh, what fools these Dems be!,

  8. the libs want the usa to fall, so they can blame it all on trump. If those states that allowed the looting find another way out of their mess maybe just ask your pos george soros for money not the tax payers!!!!!!!

    1. Follow the money to george soros. Confiscate his assets & have then used to pay for all the damages. If our Fat Ass Governor thinks the people of Illinois are going to pay for all the destruction that MORON has another thing coming.

      1. Dear Mike,
        George Soros? Really? Are you actually that anti-jewish to imagine them as the bogeyman everywhere you look?
        And where do you get your information on Mr. Soros?

        1. You must be an imbecile. That “great Jew” Soros is such a greedy bastard that he was selling his own people to the Nazis in the late ’30s and early ’40s. Just because he’s a Jew doesn’t make him unaccountable. He’s a scumbag who belongs at the end of a rope.

          1. Dear Robert Wayne, Soros was in Hungary during Hitler’s strike on the Jews. By the way, Hitler was also extremely hard on christians who objected, and the bodies of christians can be found next to the jewish people in the gas chamber. Later with his wealth pushed back on communism across Europe, particularly E. Europe. You are anti-communist, are you not? Then G. Soros is a hero.
            IF YOU DO THE SIMPLE MATH OF CALCULATING FROM MR. SOROS’ BIRTHDATE TO AUSCHWITZ AND THE END OF WWII, YOU WOULD SEE THAT HE WOULD HAVE BEEN DOING ALL THIS WHEN HE WAS BETWEEN 10 AND 14 YEARS OF AGE. Unfortunately he was in Nazi occuped Hungary/Get real.
            I am putting down something about Mr. Soros, so that something true would be said about him. If all you listen to are those crazy conspiracy theorists , you might not know:

            George Soros 47th Munich Security Conference 2011 crop.jpg
            Soros at the 2011 Munich Security Conference
            Born Schwartz György[1][2]

            August 12, 1930 (age 89)
            Budapest, Kingdom of Hungary
            Citizenship Hungary, United States

            Net worth US$8.3 billion (May 2020)[6

            Born in Budapest, Soros survived Nazi Germany-occupied Hungary and emigrated to the United Kingdom in 1947. He attended the London School of Economics, graduating with a bachelor’s and eventually a master’s degree in philosophy. Soros began his business career by taking various jobs at merchant banks in the United Kingdom and then the United States, before starting his first hedge fund, Double Eagle, in 1969. Profits from his first fund furnished the seed money to start Soros Fund Management, his second hedge fund, in 1970. Double Eagle was renamed to Quantum Fund and was the principal firm Soros advised. At its founding, Quantum Fund had $12 million in assets under management, and as of 2011 it had $25 billion, the majority of Soros’s overall net worth.[14]

            Soros is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” because of his short sale of US$10 billion worth of pounds sterling, which made him a profit of $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis.[15] Based on his early studies of philosophy, Soros formulated an application of Karl Popper’s General Theory of Reflexivity to capital markets, which he claims renders a clear picture of asset bubbles and fundamental/market value of securities, as well as value discrepancies used for shorting and swapping stocks.[16]

            Soros is a well-known supporter of progressive and liberal political causes, to which he dispenses donations through his foundation, the Open Society Foundations.[17] Between 1979 and 2011, he donated more than $11 billion to various philanthropic causes;[18][19] by 2017, his donations “on civil initiatives to reduce poverty and increase transparency, and on scholarships and universities around the world” totaled $12 billion.[20] He influenced the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s,[21] and provided one of Europe’s largest higher education endowments to the Central European University in his Hungarian hometown.[22] His extensive funding of political causes has made him a “bugaboo of European nationalists”.[23] Numerous American conservatives have promoted false claims that characterize Soros as a singularly dangerous “puppet master” behind a variety of alleged global plots, with The New York Times reporting that by 2018 these claims had “moved from the fringes to the mainstream” of Republican politics.[29] Conspiracy theories targeting Soros, who is of Jewish descent, have often been described as antisemitic.[30][31][32]

  9. I guess the all want to have a shit hole town like Detroit. remember what happened there, same riot and looting there, now a shit hole town with no jobs.

    1. Dear Larry,
      If you knew something about history and decline, you would be much more respectful of Detroit. Detroit was called the “arsenal of democracy” during WWII, because of its role in munitions. It basically bailed the US and allies in its fight against German/hitlerian/Nazi hedgemony across the world. Then it segued into automobiles and manufacturing. It reset the nation.

      From its peak labor force of 90,000 around 1930, the number of workers there declined to 30,000 by 1960 and only about 6,000 by 1990. This decline was mainly due to automation. The spread of the auto industry outward from Detroit proper in the 1950s was the beginning of a process that extended much further afield.

      That being said, how is manufacturing doing in your area? No jobs, eh? You have to have a long strategy to win that one…. and realize the decline is nationwide, so if it could happen to Detroit, it could happen to you. Sir, we are not a shithole country. Need to be the wise one here, because Trump and reviving industries has not happened… much of his tariffs have not fueled any concessions from China. So the economy is doing OK in spite of Trump, but he can sure talk a good talk. I’ll give him that. Tweets really well, also.
      Where is your national strategy on corona virus? Trump made a lot of promises, but what did he deliver but chaos?

    1. Dear Barbara T,
      You are getting false information about George Soros. You might explain where you are getting all this, since I do not subscribe to these alt right stations, but I recognize anti-semitism when I see it. Posted something on George Soros up above. Might be well to educate yourself…. so that you do not become one of those empty cups.

    2. Dear Barabara T- here is a little something about George Soros that I bet you didn’t know. … put another way… Was Soros wrong that it was a mistake for the US to be in Iraq? We are stll there, you know:
      The George W Bush administration’s militarist response to the attacks of September 11 compelled Soros to shift his attention from economics to politics. Everything about the Bush administration’s ideology was anathema to Soros. As Soros declared in his 2004 The Bubble of American Supremacy, Bush and his coterie embraced “a crude form of social Darwinism” that assumed that “life is a struggle for survival, and we must rely mainly on the use of force to survive”. Whereas before September 11, “the excesses of [this] false ideology were kept within bounds by the normal functioning of our democracy”, after it Bush “deliberately fostered the fear that has gripped the country” to silence opposition and win support for a counterproductive policy of militaristic unilateralism. To Soros, assertions such as “either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists” eerily echoed the rhetoric of the Nazis and Soviets, which he hoped to have left behind in Europe. Soros worried, wisely, that Bush would lead the nation into “a permanent state of war” characterised by foreign intervention and domestic oppression. The president was thus not only a threat to world peace, but also to the very idea of open society.

  10. When businesses KNOW that you don’t have their back, their is NO reason to stay in your City ! None of the Democrat Mayors, or Governors, including Lori Lightfoot, did ANYTHING to help the businesses that were being ATTACKED, DESTROYED, and LOOTED, by Rioters, Antifa, and BLM ! They DESERVE what they get !

  11. Remove the Democratic leadership from these states, and everybody will find that our system works well with Republicans. Democrats have lost their way in our society. They are a failed party. Remove the DNC all together!

  12. Big box businesses have been a losing proposition for year. The block’s shopping method is simple … no cash, no credit, everything is free. Just steal it or riot and loot it. Blacks are sick, violent, arrogant and stupid. What would you expect for rabid animals just one generation out of the trees. When food disappears from their neighborhood, let them continue shooting each other. Let them eat what they kill.

  13. Make the USA the second nation that throws Sorus and his socialist hate mongers out. Now the citizens of hate filled riot areas will have other choices to make. As usual the by standers will pay while the filthy government leaders will get rich by skimming off the repairs to society or dictatorial control.

  14. Tell the crowing Lightfoot she have it both ways – sooner or later you pay the price. The crow has come to roost, and all the taxpaying birds are scattering.

  15. If I was a business owner in the cities where the rioting, looting, burning, assaults and murders took place, I would refuse to keep my business there! Besides, I don’t trust the Democrats as far as I could throw them. Now, the local governments and rioters will, hopefully, pay a very steep price for their lawlessness. Life is all about choices and those folks made the choice to bite the hand that feeds them. Now, I’m wondering how they will feel when they have to walk 5, 10 or even 15 miles to buy food or, other essentials? Then, if the police have been defunded, residents may well fall prey to the same vicious criminals that instigated the riots in the first place!

  16. It is the same ALL over the U.S.. There is a market in the black neighborhood and it gets robbed three times a week and EVERYONE in the neighborhood KNOWS who the thieves are but they don’t turn them in. If you don’t turn a criminal in you are giving permission to the criminal to commit the crime again and again. Eventually, the market MOVES. The neighborhood then starts claiming RACISM and how poor they are. Any company that goes back to a neighborhood after their store was burned and looted and the MAYOR let these criminals DO this is INSANE to go back. The Democratic Party cultures this to get votes. An intelligent black man or woman would NEVER vote Democrat. Then turn in the criminals. Your lives and your income and your neighborhood will excel far beyond anything you could imagine.

  17. I grew up in the Chicagoland area and I can tell you at that time if the child caused trouble the parents were in court to answer for it. The cops are not there to cause issues but to resolve them and protect the law abiding from the criminal element. We went on vacation when I was around 15-16 my folks had never locked the house but things had started going south in that timeframe. They had to call a locksmith to create a key set for the doors.
    Under Richard Daily yes it was democrat rule but you never disrespected the police or you would find yourself with more problems then you could ever imagine.
    Now the fault of the child is not the parents, its there environment, the teachers, the school, the community, anything and everything but the parent. There is no God or Bible taught in school or home, no fear of God, no right or wrong just people like George Soros who is paying for most of this unrest and descent.
    The young have been brain washed into believing Socialism is so great, no work, no bills, everything is free, ask anyone on the streets of South America, Germany, any country that tried it and dropped it, over hundreds of years people have found it doesn’t work for everyone only those in power.
    People, life is short, buy a clue, we all have to stand and answer for our choices in the final day.

  18. Without oversight, no political or economic system works. The US system was bought out years ago by its billionaire political contributors, and we are left to fight over the scraps, because that is what is left to us, and it does keep us occupied and our eyes off the prize. Have put in a websters for socialism, because it is not commonly understood, but fascism is well understood…. which has hijacked many of the economic systems. Put in two definitions.
    As we say in the south, spit in one hand, p..ss in the other, see which one fills up faster. And aren’t we all glad we are ready for the return of this pandemic in waves? eh?

  19. What makes crappy Chicago so special? Businesses are already starting to leave Minneapolis. Whynot leave Chicago, New York, and California? There are plenty of states that would welcome more businesses and provide tax breaks as an incentive to move. I used to drive semi truck and when I delivered in southern Illinois (Mt. Vernon area) the people there said Chicago was like a separate state within the state. Illinois should kick Chicago metro area out of the state and let them stand (fall) on their own. All those big cities are nothing more than dummycrat sewer holes.

    1. WI commonly lost out to IL in regards to attracting business because they taxed businesses far less than WI, I do not believe in taxation on businesses, what is needed is strict profit margin caps and higher income tax on the wealthy, do not try to convince me that the wealthy are not responsible, the wealthy became criminals decades ago, funding members of the Communist party who started and still are pushing betrayal and defiance of our fair and just laws Constitutional Republic.

      Nike turning scumbag losers like Colin Kaepernick into heroes and the Hollywhackjob crowd circulating petitions to defund police agencies and the latter starts with the major investors of major Entertainment Production companies.

  20. What was the reason for the police being on the scene in the George Floyd incident, clearly a crime had been committed 1 in which I can guarantee Floyd was party to, autopsy report indicated there was traces of Amphetamines specifically Methamphetamine in his blood as well as Barbiturates specifically Fentanyl, yet his death was entirely the fault of the police.

    The loser along with 2 other men a few years back broke into some woman’s house and while his 2 accomplices tossed the place looking for drugs and money George stuck the muzzle of a handgun in the woman’s ribs and held her at gunpoint.

  21. Any person involved with a business needs to seriously evaluate the consequences to the entire company if any facility is located were there is a likelihood of the facility or its employees being injured, damaged or destroyed due to political factors.

  22. Lightfoot is a dangerous, moronic, far-left political turd of the most disgusting variety. The obvious said above, the prolific Chicago gun killings continue unabated, hitting new records under this totally incapable Mayor. She had the gall to dress down a more qualified Hispanic alderman which made the news. This person will DESTROY Chicago‘s, the State’s and citizen tax revenues and property values going forward. Insurance rates to double or more. Taxes to increase again and again and again until people’s home will be WORTHLESS as no sane person will be moving there and ALL property will soon be for sale….. But NO JOBS will be available. Education will deteriorate further, if that’s even possible. IL is a turd pile now, cannot even come to a worse description for what’s coming SOON. Get out with your lives….. You citizens deserve WHAT YOU VOTE FOR. None of us in the States that have and enforce the rule of law will EVER bail out you failed debts. IL is a total loss, written off by the rest of U.S..

    1. Illinois is ILL, indeed, and reaping what it sowed, no different than NY or Mexifornia. People are leaving the state that degenerated from the land of Lincoln the slum of Obama. Ask yourselves how this nasty, clueless, mulatta dyke got elected? And please don’t tell me it was the black voters, alone. They may be many in Shitcago, but not the majority. She won on a white guilt, PC moron vote!

  23. It’s the price they pay for being anti-America and their illogical governance! It happens time after time when ignorant African American leaders are voted in by ignorant voters! The DNC wants American cities to fail, that’s what the Bilderberg’s demand of them and the MSM!
    They vowed that we will have a One World Government and they ordered the MSM to steer the herd! Congratulations dumbasses!

  24. They teach our children socialism is a good thing, as entire families walk to America fleeing socialism! The left wing traitors are idiots! The DNC is public enemy #1 and we did not ask for this!

  25. Non-believers have been turned over to reprobate-minds! People, the rapture of the church is at hand, If you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, kneel and pray, in your bedroom, or closet, or where you stand, and pray and confess your sins, tell Jesus that you believe he is the only begotten son of God, and you believe he died so you could be forgiven, and God raised him from the dead, and ask him to wash away your sins, and to come into your heart and lead your life. That’s it, your forgiven, find a church that teaches Jesus Christ. God bless you!

  26. The Mayors and Governors will now get what they gave to their citizens and businesses. What goes around comes around. When your only in a position to make money by being paid off by the Democrats to demolish America, eventually it will come back to bite you in the but. God does not sleep. God Bless America.

  27. Lightfoot is another one of those brain dead moronic democrap women who have no idea of how to govern. Just look at her and listen to her she is so stupid she wreaks with incompetence. Chicago has gotten what it voted for and now has to live with it. The only answer is recall. Kick her sorry butt to the pavement, she doe not deserve your support. Come on Chicago grow a set of balls and do the right thing.

  28. All of them are right, the Democrats have ruined this country. They are a disgusting bunch of people. These protester are suppose to have a agenda, to bring our country together. not burn down our country. If I was mayor that would not happen, even if I had to use force. They would clean up the city of garbage, & any thing else they touched, if they injured a police officer they would go jail, or treat them just like they treated other people, eye for eye & tooth for a tooth says the LORD. That is why these people are so bad, they pay for nothing, they are let run wild, shoot over their head I bet they would think again about what their doing. If not their stupid just like the Democrats, Mayor & Governor. God bless our people * & our country please LORD let our Democrats get some sense

  29. What Mayor Lightbrain doesn’t comprehend [just one item on a very long list], is that Actions Speak Louder Than Words.
    So far, this Demoncrat Incompetent has demonstrated with actions that Big Business Isn’t Welcome In Chicago, despite all the pleading words. The city will survive the loss of Big Businesses, but in a severely downsized form, which means most of the grafters and grifters in public “service” are going to need to find a new gig or get real jobs doing actual work.

  30. These companies are not abandoning Chicago. During the riots, Chicago abandoned them. Let Antifa and BLM (the leftist organization, not Black people as individuals) and other anarchist ilk start businesses. Let’s see if they do as well as Wal-Mart or Target. Madam Mayor, you made your bed; not you get to lie in it. This is what happens when you pander to the left. And do you really think defunding your police department is going to encourage these businesses to stay???
