One way to make no arrests is to simply let the motorists run down the protestors.

Nowhere in the article did I see what the "protesters" are doing proactively to solve the very real problems of Chicago.

Protests such as these are disruptive and merely add to Chicago´s problems.

I would think that Chicago has a few dozen snowplows that might be helpful in clearing the roadways.

At least they´re protesting Rahm, gun violence and the need for jobs!

Blocking traffic is not beneficial but at least they´re protesting issues that matter, unlike Antifa.

So long as the rain keeps up, this will be a non-event. They may be willing to get arrested, because that no longer causes discomfort. Being cold, wet, and miserable would be a different story, and would far outweigh however much cash the rent-a-riot has been paid.

Here´s how to solve that problem.

Never fly to/from/through Chicago. O´Hare or Midway.

My life-long goal is to never set foot on Illinois soil as long as I remain alive. Including transfers through O´Hare or Midway. And since I fly to Wisconsin a bit, it does take some work (Minneapolis, Atlanta, Detroit work well).

UW-Madison students demand

Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are demanding more “inclusive” ice cream at the university-owned Babcock Hall Dairy Store, arguing that current ingredients in some of the store’s products are discriminatory toward certain religions. Eight members of the Associated Students of Madison put forth a resolution last week declaring that Babcock ice cream, which uses beef gelatin, discriminates against the school’s Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and vegetarian communities. The resolution, titled “Ice Cream for All,” would formally demand that the university administration “acknowledge the marginalization of having the official campus Ice Cream not be inclusive to religious students on campus.”

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.
