The looters and property vandals are undermining the legitimacy of the protest for George Floyd. They are just antagonizing a large segment of the population, probably a majority. Dumb and dumber.
Naz reaches all time highs. The pandemic never happened — thank you Federal Reserve. And this despite 40m now unemployed. Just like the magic feats of the Wizard of Oz — the Feds. We live in a world of smoke and mirrors where reality is hard to detect.
What happens in a city when you have a mayor who is soft on crime and not behind the city’s police department. That’s what’s happening in NYC. And it’s been like this for the entire time the current mayor has been in office.
“We Are Losing the City”
“The rate of white-on-white violent crime (12.0 per 1,000) was about four times higher than black-on-white violent crime (3.1 per 1,000). The rate of black-on-black crime (16.5 per 1,000) was more than five times higher than white-on-black violent crime (2.8 per 1,000). The rate of Hispanic-on-Hispanic crime (8.3 per 1,000) was about double the rate of white-on-Hispanic (4.1 per 1,000) and black-on-Hispanic (4.2 per 1,000) violent crime.” Bureau of Labor Statistics

To the ants, we are the blundering dinosaurs.
The Real Culprit
This coming Christmas, we should start a new Xmas tradition. Buy a tree like last year, but with the roots intact, and when Christmas is finished, take it outside and plant it on your property (dig the hole in October when the ground is still unfrozen). Every Xmas could produce millions of new trees to inhale carbon — instead of just throwing them away.
