Chicago's richest man is leaving Mayor Lori Lightfoot's (D) city and taking his $22 billion company with him.

Ken Griffin, a hedge fund billionaire worth nearly $29 billion, announced he had moved from Democratic-led Illinois to Republican-led Florida.

Florida is also set to become the new home of Citadel Securities, a company valued at around $22 billion, according to a report.

She's doing to Chicago what Coleman Young did to Detroit.

Not putting up with the woke bullshit and low taxes is a lot bigger draw to Florida than Fockin Disney ever could be.

He moved to Miami.....to avoid crime. The violent crimes difference is negligible between the two.

As long as the cash keeps rolling into her bank account, she could care less.

Property crimes don’t rate I guess. It’s fine if your car gets stolen as long as you don’t get killed. And you can’t go shopping because thugs ransacked the store again. The Miami murder rate dropped by 15 pct in 2021. Chicago went a different way. Sit this one out. You’re out of your lane.

I wonder how many folks he employed and how well they were paid so that they may spend in the local economy thereby stimilating other jobs.  I would think not all that many.  This is not like, I suspect, losing an amazon distribution center or a car manufacturing plant.  Still, it is interesting.

According to US News & World Report 

Chicago had 252 violent crimes committed per 100,000 people. Miami had 207 per 100,000 people.

Chicago had 1174 property crimes committed per 100,000 people. Miami had 1134 per 100,000 people.

So again- the difference is negligible. Also for informational purposes- Chicago has 2.7 million people. Miami has 461,000 people. 

A fun fact too for you- because I know you didn't read the article you Googled. 

Quote

 

Piquero said the Miami-Dade Police Department's "Operation Summer Heat" contributed to the decline.

The operation, which began in June and involved dozens of law enforcement agencies, was designed to take guns off the streets and targeted violent people and violent areas of the county.

Officials said the operation led to more than 3,300 felony arrests and over 1,200 guns recovered.

 

 

Who could've guessed that taking guns out of people's hands could curb gun violence? Strange how that happens.

It doesn't matter because in HT's world this will offset Disney. Disney brings in 5.8 billion annually to Florida's revenues. Citadel Securities most it brought into Illinois' revenue was 600 million.

Of the Illinois revenue I wonder how much went to Chicago.  What is the loss here, other than perception and maybe starting a trend.  Will this start a trend.  Is there alrerady a trend?  I recall some leaving California, /san /fran soecifically, for Texas with similar explanations.

When is Chicago going to start getting guns off the streets? And I already explained to you the “violent crimes “ fallacy. And there is more than one citadel moving to Florida. There are many companies doing it.  Disney was going to. But you pick one out and hold it against Disney. Let me know when people and companies start moving from Florida to Chicago.  You’re so blinded by rage you can’t see what’s in front of you. Chicago is more violent than Miami. It’s just a fact, and you can’t spin it another way. But you know better than the people that are leaving one place for another. NY lost congressional seats. Florida gained them.  But continue on with your flailing.

Pointless to debate if he is right about the crime, he is moving, period. Other have already done so, will continue.

Cite anything you want, self-pacify any way you want. 

Liberal policies will chase good people away, and leave nothing but human trash, and will gut the local economies of these cities. 

Fold your arms and pretend they are all just so wrong, as they do this.....see how that works out.

That’s why they have to use “ violent crime rate”. It would be like saying a student who gets a D is the same as one who gets an A. They both passed, right? Assault 3 and murder are both violent crimes. When the murders go up, get the Assault 3’s down. Or just make it that people won’t bother to report them. They all get thrown into the “violent crime” rate. Liberals can’t even see how they get played.

Use what ever you want.

People are leaving California, New York, and now we see this in Chicago.....people leave places where it is bad.  It is ALWAYS bad in areas where liberal policies dominate.

I don't live in a camp, but my flag is still there, where it has been since 2001 (It's been replaced a number of times, not the OG flag)

Then I would put up a Thin Blue Line flag. And a USMC one. That ought to do it.

I literally posted both violent crime and property crime rates. Seriously man- learn to read.
