  1. He says he lives for “God, family, and country.” – Don’t blame God, family, and country! Anyone but Trump!!!

    He says, “I hate the hipsters moving into our town. They’re pushing Latinos out of the area.” – NO ONE pushed the Hispanics out of Highland Park! Many of my neighbors chose to move on! A few retired and moved closer to family members, others cashed in and moved out of state or country. Sadly, within a ten block radius, we’ve had several of long time residents die. And, their heirs sold the homes to the highest bidder. The homes were in the worst possible condition. And, yes – the new investors or owners dumped a lot of money to remodel them. Guess what? It’s within their right to live in our beloved Highland Park.

    I’m a long time Highland Park resident (FYI-Mexicana) and I do not profess to own Highland Park! If you served our great nation as my brothers (Marines) did, you’d know that this is a country of opportunity and freedom! People have a right to freely determine where they would like to live.

    As for your Catholic (Cathedral) upbringing you noted, you obviously lack compassion and love for thy neighbors! It’s not us against them! My children were educated at SFHS and FSHA and I would hope that the values I hold dear of love thy neighbor are naturally innate to them; but reinforced by the nurturing educational environment provided to them.

    It’s time for REFLECTION John!
