Even with the 33rd Ward race still too close to call, five socialists is the most in Chicago since the 1910s, a decade in which the city was a hub of the radical left in America.

When they get control, it’s popcorn time!
Chicago is in such fine shape now, whats a decade or two of moving further left to see how it works out?
Socialism only works as long as there’s other people’s money to steal. Chicago is close to bankrupt.
They will increase the taxes like you won’t believe...
I was born in Chicago.
I had a beautiful condo downtown off Rush street, that I owned with my brother. I begged him to sell it with me, but he said no, and bought my half.
the annual fees and taxes run around $40K per year. It’s prime real estate.
These bozos will raise the taxes another 10% per year, probably more.
He’ll get his money out of it and then some, that’s not the problem...
Chicago is a toilet. You’re safe in the daylight, and in most places downtown, but that’s it. A beautiful view means nothing to me anymore.
I have no desire to return there for any reason.
Venezuela on Lake Michigan. Without the oil.
“the annual fees and taxes run around $40K per year.”
I suppose your brother is not a fan of the new SALT rules.
They’re in a hole, so they keep on digging
you know, Blood Turnip yada yada yada
The ghost of Upton Sinclair is smiling, no doubt.
Chicago really is a Jungle... and it's going to get worse.
If the tourists stop coming, the massive revenue from outrageous sales taxes on restaurants, hotel rooms and entertainment will dry up, and Chicago will be a combat zone.
The left has essentially destroyed every major American city.
Where is Capone and the North Side Mob, this could be corrected very quickly.

The Haymarket Riots. I walked past their stupid memorial to that a couple of months ago. If it hadnt been broad daylight Id have urinated all over it.
Given the financial mess they can only look to raise all kind of taxes, all through the roof to try and save themselves. All they will do is drive more people out and what will be left will be those with no money.
Hell get his money out of it and then some,
Dont be so sure of that. Housing prices are getting a serious whacking because of all those taxes. Crains has done some articles on it recently.
Illinois income tax is only 5% and there’s no Chicago local income tax. They could double those rates and still be below Calif and NY combined rates. C’mon leftys, get with the program! Do it for the “children”.
Years ago I watched a video of a conservative journalist being verbally harassed & physically intimidated/threatened as he was herded out the door by a collection of union thugs & an assortment of angry communist riff raff at a socialism conference in Chicago. His crime? He was there to expose how immersed in the communist cause the head of the Chicago Public schools teacher’s union, CPS teachers, & other Chicago “academia” are. The CPS union boss & several teachers were keynote speakers. The journalist was simply sounding the alarm and prompted his audience to read the list of topics at the conference. It was frightening & shocking at the time. A quick read of the topics past & present, and it’s quickly apparent that they worship Marx. At these conferences, they conspire on how to best indoctrinate the youth & infest every facet of western society with their evil worldview. Infesting the political realm is of course tops on the agenda.
Here’s a snippet of the topics on tap for the comrades at this year’s conference:
Not Just Your Pay Grade: How Do Marxists Understand Class?
Marxs Understanding of History
Marxism and Alienation
Marxism and Law
Marxism, Exploitation, and Oppression
Why We Need a Revolutionary Party
They are going down. The question is why any self respecting CEO would let his company go down with them.
The power grab that is the Chicago Teacher’s Union is all about money and power. Few of their students learn anything at all, but using children as political pawns is fair game for these Marxists.
