The governors and mayors in many of our cities continue to let anarchy reign and seem helpless or don't want to stem the tide of this problem. It's time to put a stop to this now.

If they need to put these cities under martial law to stop this lawlessness then so be it.

The time for talking is over, we need action now to end anarchy in our cities. The protesters have gotten their message across and now is the time to let the due process of law take place.

The longer this violence goes on the less sympathetic people are going be toward the protest. This is from a Black woman's protest sign. "Not all Blacks are criminals: Not all whites are racists: Not all cops are bad: Ignorance comes in all colors."

We all need to remember that protest sign.

Has Bosco’s gone all out “blackface”? Now Tim Scott is his Avatar. The only Black Republicans in Congress. Aunt Jemima is off the pancake box but not off Bosco’s mind. His pancakes will never be the same. But he will carry it on demeaning images of blacks. Let’s not his father was denied housing In the south returning from WWII because they thought he was too dark, black and that’s why he’s called “ Bosco“. Let it go.

Remember, Bosco commented when he approaches black people on the streets of Frederick, he looks “them” right in the eyes , to show he’s not afraid of them.

bosco

Glad you like my new avatar, awt. Why didn't you comment when I used Bernie Sanders or Larry Hogan, but now you have a problem with Senator Tim Scott? Methinks thee doth protest too much about my history and my journey. Can't get past that can you?

Have a lovely day and when I see you on the street, I'll be the one looking you square in the eye and smiling. [ninja]

I wonder how many of the so-called anarchists are paying any taxes that support the institutions they seem to be intent on destroying?[ninja]

jerseygrl42

and Gov. Cuomo said yesterday that the burning, looting and destruction of Monuments is "a healthy exercise"...wow what leadership

hayduke2

Come on jersey/girlpolitic - he did not say burning, looting and destruction was a healthy exercise - he said removing those that glorify past mistakes and sad points in history is a healty exerise. You are sad.

bosco

And Trump did not say White Supremacists are good people. When he was talking about the debate about taking down that statue in Charlottesville, he said that he assumec there were good people on both sides. Check snopes.

Likewise, he did not say he was a White Nationalist, he said he is a Nationalist. Check snopes on that one too.

Yet, the left continues to spin both to suit their agenda.

[ninja]

awteam2000

And the two side were good people? And who formed the racist protect in Charlottesville? Who led the “ Tiki boys” carrying torches in their NAZIS uniforms chanting “Jews will not replace us?” Didn’t one of them kill “Heather Hoyer” by driving over her with his car? Here’s the video...

More distortion of the actual quote by Trump on the debate BEFORE any of the protesters erupted into violence. Check Snopes.[ninja]

hayduke2

Kind of thin there Bosco🤪. And only the left spins to fit their agenda huh. Thanks for continuing to try to support our inept president. Wonder why the EU is now considering banning folks from the US because of how we handled the virus.

Greg F

Gee Bosco...he may not have EXPLICITELY stated he was a white nationalist, but being a nationalist and white, and a well known racist pig, he surely is one. You are quite obviously one also...though I haven't seen you say it, when one looks at a donky's rear end, he knows it to be a donkey's rear end. You posted in blackface to be a purposeful stick in the eye to blacks...period.

awteam2000

Trump is the leader of the division and strife that we see in today‘s America.

His rancor is all about “addition by subtraction“ pitting “us against them“. He plays the race card on a daily bases. Never unifying, always divisiveness. Just listen to his rants at rallies and read his obnoxious tweets. But it’s not all his fault, he’s just the megaphone for racist, ignorant underbelly of America. He gives license to the inhumanity shown by racist policing of people of color.

His presidency has brought only corruption, lies, self-ingratiation, he has open up the ugly pores in American society for the whole world to see. He’s destroyed our nation’s leadership and prominence across the world stage. A total disaster. His Supporters (cult) gets some perverted pleasure out of his incompetency as an executive, his racist, bigoted, misogynist insults. His supporters say they are looking forward to him being re-elected for the pleasure of seeing the countries values destroyed and to torment those opposed to his destructive buffoonery in office.

Protests are taking place not only in large cities but in small towns across America and across the world. Statues are being pulled down not only in America but around the world. On five continents protest are taking place. “Black Lives Matter.”

Protesting is a democratic constitutional highly regarded right.

Not a fan of looting, destroying private, physical harm - but peaceful protest should continue till the “aggravator“ of the problem is removed from office, voted out of office on November 3, 2020.

Trump has insulted Asians (kung flu), African Americans (sons of bitches) Muslims are (terrorist) and Latinos (rapists).

Confederates? “Beautiful monuments” and a “great heritage.”

What does that say about Trump’s America? Trump has insulted Asians (kung flu), African Americans (sons of bitches) and Latinos (rapists).

Confederates? “Beautiful monuments” and “great heritage.” But Black lives don’t?

What does that say about Trump’s America? It’s not my America.

clueless

Greg F

Why, yes, jersey you are

shiftless88

This is exactly what I would expect from someone who has never lived in a city.

Greg F

Some of us in agreement with AW have lived in a dozen states in multiple major metro areas and grew up in the opposite. What is it you expect? I expect a buffoon from NYC with initials DJT to fall flat on his face come NOV 3 this year and hopefully take his maggot patrol of fanboy racist trolls with him. He will throw them all under the bus in the way out...guaranteed.

sevenstones1000

The Lincoln Memorial in DC was NOT defaced. Not touched. There is a fake photo being sent around by Trump supporters to generate anger and racism. Sad that some here have fallen for those lies, but not surprising.

Bottom line. Defacing Lincoln Memorial = lie.

MRS M

Sorry to disagree on this point, seven. The Lincoln Memorial was defaced when trump decided to have a photo-op there, comparing himself to Lincoln....brought to you by none other than FOX State TV. This.....from a bankrupt low-life and empty suit of a "leader"........who declared that there were "good people on both sides" as white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, torches in hand, chanting "jews will not replace us". That film, as indelible in America's mind as the repugnant police violence captured on cell phones, whether in Minneapolis or Buffalo. Anarchy, defined as a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority........brought to you by the aberrant and morally bankrupt occupant of the White House, who lacks the capacity of leadership without division, without hate, without understanding, ...........and without a face mask. So much for his messages of leadership and authority to America.

jerseygrl42

OMG the sky is falling again...how absurd

Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

threecents

George, The status quo - like your slogan - is what caused the protests. This is not whether most people are good or bad. It is about a system that needs some re-evaluation and repair.

des21

I wonder what Joe Biden thinks about the defacing of the Lincoln Memorial and the WW2 Memorial. It's anyone's guess. Guy was on the wrong side of almost every issue (de-segregation, busing, crime, keeping his hands to himself, relations with China (don't say it worked out well for Hunter- makes Ukraine look like small potatoes, he'll threaten to punch you in the nose) for over 40 years so he is not even allowed to speak. Third presidential try is the charm? I think not.

Now that the "peaceful protesters" have destroyed all the low-hanging fruit and are going after the Lincoln Memorial, the WW2 Memorial and Emancipation Memorials (for God's sake why?) shouldn't Biden yell from the rooftops "STOP!" Why doesn't he? Because, although he was once a fairly conservative Democrat he is afraid of offending the yahoos who now dominate the Democrat party. The problem with never acknowledging their defeat in 2016 is that they never analyzed the problem- that the grown-ups have left the room and they are dominated by whichever shiny issue gets covered on MSNBC. If they want to win in 2020, someone, and one would think it should be their nominee has to stop the nonsense. Biden is afraid to given his less than stellar history with women, minorities and China.

I know Trump is evil incarnate to many of you but he was on the ball and on point yesterday from before 7 a.m., to after 9 p.m. I couldn't do that and I'm 20 years younger! . Biden dozes off during debates and is afraid to speak. You've shot yourselves in the foot again Democrats- but remember, polls in July and the popular vote is what wins the Presidency so keep focusing on those things! [beam]

Meanwhile, America burns. If you don't think people are paying attention to this and noticing and appreciating who is speaking out against it, well, you're nuts.

lilysue22

Trump admin completely bungled coronavirus and now we have over 100,000 dead and we’re entering a depression. Everything happening was a choice. We are an international embarrassment. At this point that NYC pizza rat could beat Trump. Hindsight is 20/20, who would have ever guessed someone like a Trump couldn’t handle a national emergency!!

des21

I disagree. Vehemently.

hayduke2

Yeah des, because encouraging large gatherings and making masks a political issue is so very "spot on."

Dwasserba

Oh. So let's "slow down testing."

phydeaux994

👍Don...”slow down testing, finding more Coronavirus cases makes me look bad.”

Don...”stop the publishing of John Bolton’s and my nieces books, they make me look bad.”

Don...“stop telling the TRUTH, it makes me look bad.”

bosco

lilysue22...please explain what Trump should've done differently given the information at hand in a developing crisis. Remember that thw WHO's position in mid-January was that there was little chance of human-to-human transmission of the virus and that Trump closed the border to travel from China at the end of January with only one death from community transmission, and amid cries of xenophobia from Biden and racism from Pelosi.[ninja]

lilysue22

Do what other countries did to stop the virus- large scale testing, keeping only the sick isolated, everyone wearing masks, stopping travel or isolating those that traveled, not lying to people about it, like Trump admin saying it was contained. Every other country had the same info we had and somehow did a much better job. Very odd. Would have also been nice to have a uniform National response instead of states doing whatever they wanted. Also would have been nice to help the people instead of large corporations during the response. Instead of helping keep businesses and people afloat financially, they decided to put everyone on an already burdened unemployment system. At some point we’ll have to stop deluding ourselves and come to terms with what happened and what we did wrong. Voting for a moron has consequences when we have an unforeseen national emergency. Biden and Pelosi are part of the establishment that works against us and for big business. That establishment includes republicans and Trump. [ninja][ninja][ninja][ninja]

hayduke2

Come on bosco - look at the facts. Ignoring science, encouraging early opening up of states ( which now have a surge ), where's the task force presence currently, his own staffers now down with the virus, his " it is not my problem approach" , making his politics more important and saying outright stupid stuff ( you know, internal UV light, slow down the testing, promoting drugs with no obvious benefit,etc. ) But you go right ahead and keep him on your pedestal.

Dwasserba

Someone muses aloud at the "19" in Covid-19, and we should take his recommendations on how to behave in its wake. Sharp guy.

shiftless88

Really, Bosco? There were pandemic roadmaps and everything. Other countries seemed to know what to do (though some were better at others in getting it done). This development was not a mystery. Ex Trump officials even had a WSJ article about what needed to be done around Jan 30.

shiftless88

Bosco; do not forget that Trump DID NOT close the border to travel from China. He closed the border to CHINESE from China. All the other people came streaming back here from China, thousands of them spreading the disease because no one was checked or interviewed or quarantined when they arrived. Same with those coming from the EU when he "closed" that border.

bosco

And don't forget Pelosi's kiss and hug tour of Chinatown on February 24 telling everybody to come on down.

Trump is an idiot, but thank goodness the federal agencies were able to respond in spite of him. Look at the field hospitals built by the military, the hospital ships dispatched on each coast, the ramping up of ventilator production, ramping up testing capabilities, and the information available by the CDC. Our federal workers deserve the praise.

BTW, did I say Trump is an idiot? He reinforces that perception every time he opens his mouth.

I wish we had a real choice in November. Maybe we'll move to Canada and join the Hollywood elite who moved there after the 2016 election......or maybe we'll stay here and try to make the world a better place one action at a time.

[ninja]

Greg F

Oh Bosco the wise and trollful...asking others to do what you cannot or will not for the love of your mafia Don. You again project Donnie Dumbf’s xenophobia and racist rants on Biden in a vain attempt to deflect and project his failings he so obviously has to anyone not either a cult boy fan or racist member of the “I Love Donnie” brigade they it’s a really sad commentary on yourself. He closed it...well afte he should have and bungled everything else henceforth.

bosco

Doctor FedUp GregF.......same old same old from the Toxic Troll King.....come on up to Emmitsburg when the Dunkin opens and I'll buy you a cup of coffee. Oh, I forgot, you don't like that either. What do you enjoy?[ninja][yawn]

Greg F

Gee...des...talk about someone on the wrong side of everything....that is Trump. Wrong side of crime, corruption, racist behavior, fossil fuels, coddling dictators, pushing away allies, science, education, clean energy (not just washing coal with soap and water to make it clean), nepotism, virus policy, testing...you name it, the guy takes the wrong stance on every single thing, while you seem to lap it up and bathe in the froth of ignorance like it's a dream come true. No...Joe may not be the best of the best of the best, but he sure is the polar opposite of that mafia dictator wannabe in there now who would just as soon fly the Nazi flag as any other. He is backed by the KKK and for good reason. He has followers who fly the Nazi flag...again...no attempt to distance himself. He spouts things that come right out of the Joseph Goebbels playbook (go ahead...use Google now...I know you probably have no idea who that is given your 20 years thing showing your youthful ignorance). What does it take? There's a rock somewhere out there...go crawl back under it.

des21

Hyperbole much Greg- pulling the old Nazi/racist card- classic! When you are ready to discuss what has actually happened over the past 3.5 years rationally let me know. Otherwise, enjoy the beautiful day! I will. Heck the way you write I though t you were a kid. No, just a boomer.

Greg F

What has happened, Des? Trump has happened along with those blind to his crooked way of doing everything. I'm not pulling a "nazi card" out...Trump's done that pretty well on his own, as have his flag waiving followers.

Thewheelone

The defacing of the Lincoln Memorial was fake news, Des. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/lincoln-memorial-defaced-protesters/

hayduke2

Spread the misinformation des - https://www.factcheck.org/2020/06/statue-in-lincoln-memorial-was-not-defaced-by-protesters/ Trump on point [lol][lol][lol] - maybe in between his "executive time".

hayduke2

Read this https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/03/11/age-related-mental-decline-is-real-issue-both-biden-trump/

Dwasserba

I read it. The running mate is critical. As for the Presidential spot, I said before, I have a favorite lamp I'd vote for before Trump, and I stand by that.

hayduke2

DWass - not arguing against Biden. Just pointing out that the issues raised by Trump and his cronies are inaccurate and misleading.

des21

Newsflash folks- just because you don't like it and it embarrasses your side doesn't make it fake. Sorry. Keep defending the indefensible. Its a great look![smile]

hayduke2

People who live in glass houses des.....

KR999

"Polls in July and the popular vote is what wins the Presidency..." Great line des, I love it! [thumbup][thumbup][thumbup]

Greg F

Quo...not who

Greg F

“This problem?” What...equality? That’s a problem? The status who is the problem as it a racist as$ in the Oval Office.

des21

SMH. Hes' done more for Black people than any other sitting President but that's the party line eh Greg. Sad.

Greg F

Trump? Really? He's done more TO them.

des21

You are demonstrably wrong. Sorry.

Greg F

So, Des...demonstrate away....if you think you can. Let's hear your rambling manifesto.

bosco

Agree, des21, especially when you look at minority employment numbers during Trump's administration. Don't have to like the man, but I liked those numbers. He also got something done on prison sentencing reform - remember that was the bill that Biden was so proud of, but resulted in disproportionate numbers of black men and women being imprisoned for long stretches for lightweight crimes. Ask Alice Johnson how she feels about Trump's sentencing reform. [ninja]

Thewheelone

Yes you must be correct, Des. I guess that's why you see so many Black folks at the president's rallies.

hayduke2

Well, there is that one guy that shows up all the time. Interesting read about who he is https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/08/23/the-strange-story-of-that-blacks-for-trump-guy-standing-behind-potus-at-his-phoenix-rally/

des21

You do actually wheel..The first one I watched had several in that "tiny" crowd. I was impressed. Not sure there are that many black IN Arizona actually but there were a bunch at that rally. He bused them in right?[beam]

hayduke2

At least you recoginize that it is the party line. You should take a look at the unemployment trend over time and you might just realize how the trend was looking since the great recession of 2008/09. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/LNS14000031

Greg F

How's that line doing now Duke? How much added to the debt did we get from that line and the tax cuts for wealthy?

hayduke2

Greg - if you look at the trend that "line" was is steady decrease over time. Yeah, it has now once again jumped up to near 2008 numbers. Not sure of your point. As far as the debt and tax cuts, I have never posted a positive regarding them. Sometimes your posts come across as combative when they need not be.

bosco

Sometimes, Hayduke2? I don't think he likes anyone or anything. Enjoy the day.[ninja]

des21

In other word Greg, Hay is trying to say, "we're on the same side, solidarity brother."

public-redux

Certainly he has overseen the removal of more Confederate statues and flags than any other president.
