Thirty Nine Thousand

According to an article in today’s Chicago Tribune newspaper that stated at least 39,000 people have been murdered in the last sixty years in the windy city… This is not taking into consideration the the violent past which started during Prohibition. Those who have become casualties of this war on ourselves have mostly people of color or black people. Those who live in the so-called inner cities are for the part on some kind of government assistance which programs one for failure. Once you gut used to being poor your life will give you that lifestyle as long as you live.

How can people kill their own kind in a major city in America and no one from politicians to those who live through a real life urban war zone is a question no one is willing to find an answer to. The total number is more than our military has suffered in both Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

The sad fact is nothing will change because we as a society wish to continue with the status quo. Business as usual is the American way. Win. Lose. Draw.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
