Chicago is the worst for a lot of things. Nuke it from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.

Interesting, I wonder if there is a statistically significant correlation coefficient to gun violence.

If so, maybe as an additional Presidential Executive Order we should have a program to exterminate bedbugs so as to control gun violence. Would make about as much sense as limiting the size of magazines and banning certain firearms because of cosmetic features.

I must have misread the headline, I thought they were talking about cock roaches and immediately, Odumbo came to mind.

Sorry...........

Will anyone in the MSM have the guts to ask Mayor Rahm Emanuel for a comment on this?

The bugs tend to spread quickly because they inject an anesthetic when they bite, which prevents a person from realizing that they've been bitten.

Kinda reminds me of nobama's joke session with the kiddos yesterday. 23 jokes. What a kidder. Ha Ha.

But it is perfect symbolism. And some of those blood suckers have even moved to Washington D C.
