Ferguson logic: rebuild local businesses
´or it´s going to be be hell to pay´

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 8/25/2014 9:08:02 AM

Having burned down and looted many businesses that serve their community, some residents of Ferguson (or maybe it is just the outsiders who came in to join the outrage) are realizing that it is going to be inconvenient to have nowhere nearby to buy food, liquor, tobacco, and other merchandise. Burned out stores also hire very few people, in case anyone actually wants a job. (snip) “To be honest, if they don’t come and restore these neighborhoods for these people, like when you gotta go travel miles to Walmart and to get gas and stuff like that, it should be

I love all the talk about "federal aid" for Ferguson - - which would amount to everyone else paying for the plasma tv´s which the looters stole.

Yup - - that´ll teach them a lesson - - - - You steal stuff - - we´ll pay for it.

Four of life´s certainties:

1. Obama, surrounded by crowd of Missouri Demcrats and Al Sharpton, announces a $1 billon rebuilding fund for Ferguson. Money to be distributed by Small Business Administration´s, SBA, minority lending unit.

2. August, 2015, SBA´s inspector general reports massive fraud in Ferguson loans, with loans made without verification of any borrower´s credentials or subsequent use of the funds.

3. September, 2015, Obama blocks House oversight from receiving documents on SBA´s Ferguson loan scandal. Emails between SBA and WH also "lost". WH calls Issa´s investigation "racist".

4. Ferguson remains a retail and jobs desert 3 years after riots, with stil boarded-up stores . Gunny, the person who threatened to loot if stores & jobs didn´t return, threatens to loot if stores do not reopen next year.

"They" need to rebuild and restore things in Ferguson - doesn´t take much brain power to realize who "they" refers to. We, Americans who love our country and are hard-working taxpayers, are sickened by this ´victim´ attitude. Put a shovel in the hands of those three men and tell them to start digging a ditch or ´something´ useful - they´d probably tell you to go take a flying leap!

"If you don’t rebuild those businesses we looted and torched, we’ll loot and torch some more – until you do."

Yup, like that has worked so well in most cities. The blight sets in where no one will build businesses that cost too much to run because of insurance and trying to get suppliers to make deliveries in a "war zone" and covering for massive amounts of theft. Even if successful, to have it robbed and torched by the animals that loot.

There´s this thing called civilization. It´s not always easy but it works better for most than the alternative. Until the looing animals learn this, they are doomed to their gloomy existence.

BTW thugs, in a civilized area, looters are arrested or shot. Something to think about.

I propose a solution to unemployment.

Build more prisons to house these lazy, uneducated leeches. The simple kind. No fancy gym equipment, basketball courts, TV in every cell, movie nights & whatever else these entitlement sissies demand. Up at 6 am., breakfast, hard physical labor, lunch, hard physical labor until late supper (Michelle´s meals), shower & lights out. Up again at 6 or maybe 5 would be better.

´´Biggest downside here is, now that the scum have destroyed so many businesses and others will close down, the shoplifters will now head to new hunting grounds to do their ´shopping.´

That was too easy.

I see Gunny has his cell phone. Wonder who pays the bill for that?

It´s it interesting that there are little or no black business owners in Ferguson who suffered their businesses being looted and burned down, at least according to TV media reports. It appears that all the business owners who actually suffered loses are immigrants of either of Middle Eastern or Southwest Asian origin.

When you have lived on the welfare plantation your whole life -- where everything has been given to you without you having to work for anything -- you probably think that the government runs every business and can just use rich people´s tax dollars to build new businesses to give you more free stuff.

What real business owner with more than 1/10th of a brain would be stupid enough to build (or re-build) in this cesspool of ignorance and violence?!?!?

There was an interesting article that I ran across, that said the store featured in the Michael Brown robbery film was actually a money laundering front for funding terrorists in Iran. As for the truth of thag report, I cannot speak to that, but, the article was interesting, nonetheless.

Any smart store owner would simply take the money and run. Find a new location for your store where you might have at least a few years of business before the invasion begins again, then, simply pack up, and move again. No one is required to stay in what amounts to a terrorized neighborhood, and do business. The lives of the owners and families that run the small businesses are simply not worth it.

White people but cigarettes, alcohol, and cigars too, and you are more likely to actually survive the sale to see another day.

Think twice before rebuilding, Federal funds or not. Most assuredly, these shop owners had insurance. Think hard.

More than a store is at risk here. Especially now, and especially if your name isn´t Jaquille or Shaniqua.

The Ivanpah solar generating plant is located in California about 50 miles from Las Vegas near the California-Nevada border. 173,000 mirrors are used to concentrate the sun on 3 boiler-towers where water is turned into steam to drive turbines and generate electricity. The mirrors track the sun and concentrate sunlight so that the intensity of light falling on the boiler-towers is about 500 times stronger than sunlight -- a death ray.

The Democratic Party and the mainstream media joined to run interference for Barack Obama when he became a national figure. Obama was painted as a charismatic, competent, new kind of politician. The passage of time destroyed this image. Now, the public increasingly sees Obama as incompetent, untrustworthy and unmotivated. Supporters are now in an awkward position. Do they continue to support what is increasingly seen as an inept president or do they turn against him? Continuing the subterfuge is dangerous.

If we should be attacked by terrorists who come across our unprotected, undefended southern border, and should Americans die in any such attack, we would do well to understand for what those lives were lost. They would have been spent for the ability of illegal aliens to cast illegal votes for politicians doing illegal things. While both parties are to some degree to blame for the porousness of our southern border, the party that has the singular ability to solve the problem via the levers of government, the Democrats, is ensuring that the problem becomes so pervasive and vast that

In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82).

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.
