1. I once asked my father, (born 1918 East Chicago, EC Roosevelt 1935) this question "How long has politics been corrupt in East Chicago?". His answer was "As long as I can remember"

  2. First of all, look at the facts.The land that is Isreal was Palestine before 1948. The Isrealies 'claim' Isreal because the bible says so.The Jews use a freakin book (that some religions do not even recognize) to claim this land. Gimme a break. The Jews have no more right to this land than any other religious body. I don't agree with the way the Palestians are going about it, but the intentions are correct. This land was STOLEN from them by the actions of the US & Great Britian in 1948.

  3. The area south of I80/94 should form thier own county. Let Hammond or EC or maybe even Gary be the county seat of the NEW Lake County. Maybe we could call ourselves South County, In.

  4. I agree 100% with SpeedRacer. Why should I pay an income tax to support corrupt officials at the city or county level? Let the feds (or whoever) clean up the corruption and then AND only then let's review weather an income tax is needed.

  7. Hamm says that he will not rule out a county income tax? This is the very reason that this crook has to go at the first possible election. I do not live in Hammond. So I do not see the need for non Hammond residents to financially support Hammond. Let Hammond impose an income tax on its own residents and leave the rest of us ALONE.
