  1. Seems that CL is in fierce competition with Woodstock when it comes to pervs in residence as of late.

    Yet one more reason to follow those who are fleeing Illinois.

  2. Yup Honest, no other city or state in the country have any crimes.

  3. Yup dentbla, another of your nonsensical posts which have nothing to do whatsoever with the subject matter.
    I would tell you to try again, but that would be hopelessly futile.

  4. It’s the places you don’t hear arrests happening that you should be fleeing from.

  5. Weren’t we promised that if we accepted porn and open homosexuality all these problems would disappear?

  6. “Weren’t we promised that if we accepted porn and open homosexuality all these problems would disappear?” —- No, you were not. You can’t get rid of human nature my friend – porn is not the tool of the devil. It’s porn, people have the choice to indulge or abstain. It’s not openly flaunted or advertised.

    Why do so many people scream for personal freedoms, but fight against any freedom they deem inappropriate or immoral? The hate and division between neighbors is more problematic. The hate just on this website is frightening and anxiety-inducing. Much name calling and so little listening. Keep drawing lines in the sand, the tide will always win.

    Open ears, open hearts. I wish people would try it out instead of running scared of the present, or putting a wall up to keep out the unwanted(never works guys).

  7. **Weren’t we promised that if we accepted porn and open homosexuality all these problems would disappear?**

    uh… no?

  8. And the new world order liberals have spoken their piece on tolerance which will be the end of the whole world as we know it. [sigh]
