    Not a fan of hate speech, but you can't take speech you don't like and try to link it to events. Bottom line, the speech didn't do it. The person did.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The left is big on hate speech, but never when it can apply to them. Interesting.

    That's silliness. Defend your position or concede.

    You saying I need to be more informed about this topic is laughable.

    All your doing is echoing the right wing propagandists. Maybe try reading something factual on the topic, or at least provide me with some sort of evidence. You probably do not do this however because almost all of such "evidence" that would back your claims is easily debunkable.



    Yes they are all picking fruit and scrubbing toilets. Again do you think they are coming here and working as business executives? Or getting degrees? I mean, what else do you think they are doing?

    And I don't believe those estimates for one second. Where are they from?



    Again your the horridly uninformed one. You realize you think like 1/17th of america is illegal...

    What on earth is tp? Toilet paper? I don't see how toilet paper could make opinions...
    TP is a talking point. It's used by whatever it is your reading to put out a message.

    It's clear you're very comfortable with what you have been taught. It's also very clear that effort has successfully achieved it's goal. One of the great complaints about education today is this agenda driven agenda that can best be described as propaganda.

    By the way, did you know in many state, California for example, illegal aliens are treated as residents when it comes to taxpayer supported colleges and universities, and as a result of recent legislation, can receive financial assistance. So to answer the "getting degrees" question, the answer is yes.

    You're grossly uninformed, and I think it's a good thing for people to read posts from people like you so the complaints about education and the like can be illustrated and proven true.

    By all means, keep posting.

    Happy New Year!!

    18 U.S. Code § 2102 - Definitions...
    (b) As used in this chapter, the term “to incite a riot”, or “to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot”, includes, but is not limited to, urging or instigating other persons to riot, but shall not be deemed to mean the mere oral or written (1) advocacy of ideas or (2) expression of belief, not involving advocacy of any act or acts of violence or assertion of the rightness of, or the right to commit, any such act or acts.

    So here's the thing.
    You're right that you can't always legally link speech alone to events and that the speech didn't do it the person did.
    In instances like this, for example, the people stirring the pot have the experience to know that too and they're careful not to cross that line (in a provable sense) but you know they depend on the pot to make the leap themselves.

    I have problems with him, but they don't stem from this.

    If anybody is "race baiting" its the right with their constant denial, excuses, and accusations.
    All he does is race bait. I don't care if he happens to get one right now and then because his only goal is to race bait, in the end. He is scum.

    The police getting off or not, not sure what case you are referring to, is about crime or the legal system failing.... not race.

    You have no idea what your talking about dude... If it weren't for them food prices would be through the roof. They do take other jobs, but they all amount to menial labour. Its not like they are working in offices or even taking skilled construction jobs...

    Maybe you should do some research into what food would cost without em...
    How are ILLEGAL immigrants going to gain skilled positions?

    Food used to cost next to nothing back in the day and there were little to no illegal immigrants picking the food. They were legal Latino immigrants or they were white farmers.

    The inner city has been dissatisfied for a long long time. We would be pissed about this no matter what. You seem to not have a clue...
    Maybe you should do something about solving the problems then... supporting law enforcement, reducing crime and gangs would be a GREAT first step.

    Attacking cops, rioting and looting your own community? Idiotic.

    Wrong.

    Those cops should be behind bars or worse...

    The prosecutor should be to, he at least should be stripped of all licenses....
    The cops in the Garner case? Only that one should be behind bars. I agree with that for sure. The choke holder should be in prison.

    The D.A. presented evidence to the Grand Jury. It was not enough. If you have evidence of criminal wrong doing by the D.A. then please present it.

    What a hilarious notion. Where did either say that?
    Obviously that is what much of White America is hearing... maybe he should change his idiotic tune if he wants support instead of accusation? Only seems intelligent.
