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.

I posted this (below) on a Ferguson article on the 19th.

´´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.

Megyn Kelly confronts inappropriate,

Megyn Kelly interviewed Jan Psaki on Thursday (video below). Let me cut to the chase and ask that must be pondered: What is wrong with Jan Psaki? I’m serious. She looks like someone is feeding her cues through a tiny earpiece telling her: Keep smiling. Make sure you grin. Smile broadly. And she does this in the face of Kelly discussing grave matters and posing serious questions. (Psaki does this all the time during press briefings, as well.) Does she think she can charm or flirt her way out of interactions? Is she mentally ill? Is she on drugs? Or is this just smug, childish

With traditional sexual morality discarded, the last taboo is under attack by the fairness mafia.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
