    Not allowed since Linux banned me 3 years ago.

    I said "I would rather deport non-working residents than working illegal immigrants."

    I appealed to supermods but got nowhere. Now I just post occasionally on Indiana forums and read Chicago forums. Honestly better as I am pretty busy with family and work.

    I agree that fighting is assault.

    I think it is a bit of a stretch to say that fighting is illegal, particularly a fair fight among young people, who usually don't even land punches.

    My limited "fights" during athletic contests (3 times during basketball games) involved yelling and pushing. One guy punched me in the back of the head while I was walking away and I had him removed from YMCA and had his membership revoked.

    Assault involves physical damage. Many people get into fights, even physical ones and do not hurt each other. If one person does damage to the other then it is assault, especially if the damage is one-sided and they started the fight.

    Humboldt1 - Do you still comment on the actual forum or just on people's profiles?

    Being in a fight does not make you a thug, though certainly immature. I am guessing you have never been in a fight but many of us have, usually on the basketball court or soccer field after being fouled really hard. I have not been in a fight since college and it wasn't so much a fight as hard fouls. Guy fouled me really hard and I fouled him really hard on the next play. Words were said, but no fists landed. I have never been in a bar fight.

    I think of thugs as people wo break the law doing things that hurt others, often with weapons. I do think that the Daley nephew who beat that guy to death at bar a few years back is a thug.

    I do not think thug should be a code word for blacks, though our media is certainly pushing that narrative.

    Oak Park and Homewood are not that comparable. Oak Park is 22 percent black and 67 percent white. Homewood is 34 percent black (it was 21 percent in 2000) and 60 percent white. Average household income in Oak Park is 105k. In Homewood it is 67k.

    Homewood will look like South Holland in another decade. It is not trending toward diversity, just shifting from white to black like much of the south suburbs.

    My dad has a farm, not a firm.

    I agree. It is a class thing.

    You are right in that my kids education is paid for but so what. We plan for these things.

    I was not offended by your post just the one where you said over 50 percent of the budget was spent on military. That was just wrong.

    I think it is fine that you have friends in the military but as you note (indirectly) it isn't exactly or best or brightest than are enlisting.
