    The real question that needs to be asked is why are the inner cities burning? Is it because of "systemic racism" or has the liberal socialist experiment failed? Big city Dems run every four years on improving the lot of folks living in the inner city, ending racism, increasing benefits etc. and reforming policing to no real effect. We have seen trillions of dollars in transfer payments and most of the poor people remaining in the inner city are still poor and still feel oppressed. A cynic would argue that the welfare system is designed to keep the people on it poor and dependent on the Democrats in power and that is the real lesson of the periodic riots. It is too bad that inner city voters are unable to figure out that they are "played" every four years or are unwilling to accept that reality. The inner city is only important for votes and nothing else. So now Democrats are giving lip service to the "de-fund the police" movement as subterfuge for their own failure to keep their cities from burning. Crazy alternative reality they live in.

    I would point out that the election is still over 5 months away and that is an eternity in politics and media polling is a good as worthless this far out. The same media pundits that said Hillary was sure to win are the same ones saying that Trump is toast now. Watch and learn, by the week before the election, these same pundits will be calling the election too close to call.

    Thank you for your candour. I now better understand your position.
    I'm also one of the few conservatives that sees those same flaws. You are asking a zebra to change his strips and keep in mind there's method to his madness. There's a couple of reasons I remain supportive of Trump. First is consider the alternative of what the Dems have become. Second I've taken Steve Bannon's advice to distinguish the signal from the noise. Everything you listed is noise. Dave has mentioned some of his important accomplishments which is the signal.

    with the scrutiny placed on the police right now, all it would take would be 2-3 soldiers shooting protesters, rioters or civilians. out of tens of thousands deployed, 2-3 could be killed by accident. the new focus would be on the military.
    if the government can't organize anything, why are will all wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart?

    Because as anybody knows, rioters are immune to covid-19. Or maybe the whole social distancing thing was a scam to begin with. Also starting to have flashbacks to '68, have you seen the "peace" signs starting to show up at the protests? I think a lot of overage hippies want to relive '68 and the height of the anti war protests to demonstrate that they are still relevant. As far as the government goes, big, slow and stupid, just stay out of it's way, it has always been that way and probably always will be.

    In my opinion , the good people of Michigan turned the tide on the Covid BS. (At least East of the Rockies) If it happened today, would they call them terrorists?! 2D83A663-31F6-4159-A844-8C8C30C18CF8.jpeg

    More "Chicago values" from the current idiot mayor.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/m...hood-streets-with-bats/ar-BB152S4r?li=BBnbfcL

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the city will not tolerate vigilantism after groups of mostly white men patrolled the streets of the Bridgeport neighborhood on Wednesday night in response to a nearby city protest.

    But the looting, rioting and fake hate crimes are fine? Are these guys carrying "assault" bats? Or Corona bats?

    That is standard operating procedure for the left, protect the criminals(their voter base), and demonize anyone that tries to protect themselves or their property. ANYBODY that defends that kind of policy has serious mental issues!

    The sad part Dave is that even if she doesn't get re-elected someone just as bad, or worse, will get elected.

    Oh, how angry they get when they're exposed. Note the spin, peaceful protesters aren't normally arrested, rioters and looters sometimes, MAYBE they catch 1~ 2% of them. If they were as smart as bank robbers, they'd go where the money is, celebrity neighborhoods, and bypass the whole "donation" thing.

    The Fox News host criticized celebrities for their donations to bail funds and charities amid unrest and protests

    Celebrities hit back at Fox News’ Tucker Carlson en masse Friday after he dedicated a segment of his primetime show to criticizing them for donations they made to bail out those arrested during the protests and to charities to fight racial injustice.
