  • Got Candy?

    Ms. G. is asking for $293.16:
    My students need some candy for motivation, positive reinforcement, and to help get them through the day.
    Aspira Charter-Early College High School
  • Tim

    Evidently people like to place their own values and judge others. Let the teacher teach and let them request what they feel is needed to do their work. I'm not sure why so many people are judging the teacher who made this requests. I'm sure people wouldn't be complaining if she requested stickers...so what's the big deal with candy? Ugh.

    In comparison to what?

Swastikas, razor blades found on Chicago park signs

3400-3499 N. Kilbourn Ave.

    Swastikas, razor blades found on Chicago park signs
    CHICAGO - A woman on the city's northwest side found swastika stickers on park signs with razor blades underneath them on Sunday. The woman who first spotted the stickers at Kilbourn Park didn't want to talk on camera but said she doesn't want stuff like this in the neighborhood.

  • Weebis Politically Incorrect Thought Criminal

    I suspect antifa of planting the Swastikas and razor blades.

    This doesn't pass the sniff test for legitimacy.

  • Weebis Politically Incorrect Thought Criminal

    That was my point when the EB censors deleted my first post.

    I mentioned that this incident had "false flag" written all over it, especially in light to the illegal migrant hordes on the southern border.

    If you've ever visited Kilbourne Park recently, it's not exactly a fertile National Socialist recruiting demographic.

  • Weebis Politically Incorrect Thought Criminal

    They're Soros funded anarchists. A lot are rejects from the "black brigade" anarchists that were in Chicago for the NATO conference a few years back.

    I'm sure Starbucks, and Target would hire antifa members. They're of similar ilk.
