Normally this would barely be on my radar. Not because I don’t care about crime (I do), nor because I think East St. Louis is a trainwreck and should be bulldozed off the planet (It is). Instead, I really don’t care about anything in Illinois….because the reap what they sow.
HOWEVER, when Democratic DipShit Dick Durbin starts spouting that “ you can’t open liquor stores on every corner near housing developments and expect good things to come if you’re open all night” - Really? What does that have to do with public housing, poor showings in school, high unemployment and crime? How is this different than being able to go into Walmart, Walgreens or your local gas station and picking up a fifth?
Come on people, the crux of THIS STORY is that the politicians of Illinois have no idea how to fix their probles, and that they want to blame anyone and everyone (except themselves), challenging them to fix it.
And leave my liquor stores out of it.
