    "AP President Obama will travel to Copenhagen to make a pitch for Chicago’s Olympic bid, White House officials have confirmed to NBC News.

    Obama will leave for Denmark Thursday night, hours after his wife Michelle departs for the vote. The president made the final decision Saturday night after returning from the G20 summit in Pittsburgh.

    "The President decided over the weekend that he wanted be a part of the final push as we enter the home stretch," Jarrett told Politico.com"

    Its good to see that Obama is focusing on the issues that are most important.

    That shithole corrupt town doesn't deserve it. Glad I left.
  3. Worst hoods by crime rates.

    2. Chicago, Ill.
    Neighborhood: State St./Garfield Blvd.
    Found Within ZIP Code(s): 60609
    Predicted Annual Violent Crimes: 275
    Violent Crime Rate (per 1,000): 264.17
    My Chances of Becoming a Victim Here (in one year): 1 in 4
    You hang here with 4 of your buddies one of you is going to be whacked upside your head.

    BTW, this is one of the communities worked by that legendary community organizer, our Dear Leader, the Kenya Messiah, Barak Obama.
  4. Not that I care that much, but this is from your link:

    25. Chicago, Ill.
    Neighborhood: Winchester Ave./60th St.
    Found Within ZIP Code(s): 60636
    Predicted Annual Violent Crimes: 234
    Violent Crime Rate (per 1,000): 103.68
    My Chances of Becoming a Victim Here (in one year): 1 in 10

    25 not 2. 103 not 264 1 in 10 vs. 1 in 4.

    This is bad enough, why make it look worse?

  5. The list is top 25, you listed number 25, I listed number 2...because it is next to the Olympic site and a neighborhood that Obama has organized.
