    You might be deplorable if:

    1. You show your voter ID to vote

    2. You think inner city schools are nothing more than glorified inner city prisons

    3. You think Iraq is a safer place to visit than Chicago.

    4. You think Hillary lied........about anything really.

    5. You are bigoted toward illegal immigrants and radical jihadist terrorists.

    6. You value life, even inside the womb.

    7. You are allowed to say, "radical Islamic terrorists" and "illegal immigrant"

    8. You are allowed to say "Merry Christmas"

    9 You believe good fences make good neighbors

    10. You believe all lives matter

    You are aware that there is a war going on in Iraq with ISIS? There is no way that Chicago is more dangerous than Iraq. That particular item isn't deplorable, it's just disconnected from reality.

    Well let's look at the numbers

    https://www.iraqbodycount.org/analysis/numbers/2015/
    We can't compare a city to a country, so let's compare cities in Iraq to Chicago.

    In Baghdad, there were 3,426 killed in 2015 but in Diyala there were only 1,315 killed.

    In Chicago, there were 468 homicides. However, there were 2,900 shot.

    That means gang bangers are either worse shots or the US has better medical care

    You be the judge.

    I would dare say that there are much more dangerous places in Chicago than in Iraq. That is a no brainer.

    Just so long as you stay in the rich fat cat sections of Chicago where Barak Obama and company used to live you will be just fine.
