    Re: Most businesses destroyed in ferguson minority owned

    I watched the riots live on Fox News and CNN. I kept wondering why there were no police or National Guard. If I didnt know any better I would think that most of the people that attacked business were paid agitators. And that the Police allowed them to attack business. It seemed like the police and media wanted something to happen and when it didnt they made it happen.

    The best thing that I saw was 'protesters' throwing garbage at a female African American CNN reporter. They were not throwing the garbage hard in a way that would hurt her, more in a way that said - f$%# off. See it didnt matter that she was African American, the problem was that she was a trouble maker from corporate media.

    America is a clown show. The world sees this nonsense. We see your ridiculous media clowns. Your nation is an embarrassment to the global community.

    Gotta love the idiotic corporate media reporters that are going around talking themselves up for reporting in such a dangerous environment.... They all seemed to be having great fun when I was watching. Great excitement for them. And why dont they mention that they have body guards when they are giving interviews about how very brave they are?

    That is a good question and to the heart of the matter. Why do fresh imegrants from Africa do better at school and in business than our home grown article? Maybe we should work on improving their performance. After all is said and done, you see, they could be an asset to the community, if we could find a way to organize the country such that more finished school and university; were successful in jobs. We as a community are the losers as it stands, as we are allowing our communal economy to wast its human capital.

    I think the first step is to set a date certain when we rescind much of the Left's welfare state. And no more community organizing. Agitation and propaganda are used to tear down, not to build up. It is an instrument of subjugation of the very people it claims to support.

    That requires two things: 1) getting a supermajority (of politically suicidal folks) in both houses of congress and 2) being willing to own the ensuing riots on a scale not seen since the US civil war. How many politicians would be willing to risk being blamed for those riots? The "safety net" is here to stay (and growing) since our congress critters see that it is essential to keeping them in office. Some may talk about "welfare reform" but none will ever do anything about it - wasn't it under Clinton that we supposedly ended welfare as we knew it? We now have welfare as we grew it instead.

    I suppose it is far easier to grow several sets of permanent underclasses. We do need people to make our beds and pluck our chickens, after all.

    If we cannot be honest with what the Left has done and reverse it then the nation is already lost so let the war come.

    Maybe. Maybe not. When I did research on this a good while ago, it did not look like we really knew what to do. The only thing that was certain was that we were not doing a very good job. But you re very probably right, when you point out that social welfare could be one of the driving factors and making the problems worse. This is often the case with well intended actions and I have seen negative impacts from social programs in a number of situations in and outside the US.

    social welfare is only a small part

    for some reason, the black community has gone away from the family

    way too many single parent households

    that leaves the kids alone....with mom in a lot of cases working two jobs to keep them fed

    the problem is a large percentage of young black men are not living up to their responsibilities

    maybe they werent taught that they needed to......maybe it is the new norm.....i dunno

    and too many are out hustling on the street instead of in school trying to educate themselves

    my question is where are the black community leaders?

    not the malcolm x's.....or the race baiters.....but the businessmen who have made it out

    the bankers, the lawyers, the doctors who can set a great example

    where are they, and why arent they in there telling a different story than the Jesse jacksons, or the Al sharptons

    It seems like the victim card continuously keeps being played......it is never the fault of the individual themselves

    All of those bad outcomes are driven by the way we provide welfare. A single mom with an undisciplined brood is more valuable to politicians and therefore receive greater benefits than that same family with a father married to a mother. Or at least that is the way the rules used to be written. I am sure someone will investigate and if it has changed will call me a liar. Such is life.
