One year old boy shot in the stomach in New York City

I think it was because the shooter was hungry.


You do understand that saying unemployment and penury leads to crime is not actually an endorsement of crime,  right?   Or meant to say that all crime is caused by poverty.   Feel free to share any other logic/reading problems you have.

You missed the hook.

Its ok - as you were


Nope,  saw the AOC comment.   Her big picture summation is not invalidated every time someone in a city of millions is not shot for bread. 
 Non-idiots can grasp when she is using a metaphor.

Say what?
A metaphor?
No one is dying for bread.
 Minorities are being killed by minorities in minority neighborhoods in record numbers in our major cities. For NO reason.
Black Live Matters, in the meantime, wants to discuss street “ murals”.

There is a whole scene where it is about everyone trying to be the biggest gangster, and they are killing each other, it is all bullshit of course, but people are dying. 

That is why you want your kids to study hard, be successful, and go live in the nice areas, you do not want your kids to get caught up in the street scene, and violence, and drugs, etc.

The ghettos are like meat grinders, and they just grind our youth up. 

So you want your kids to study hard, and to go live in the nice part of town.

And when I see rich white kids who think the drugs and areas like Compton are so cool, I try to tell them, stop trying to be a gangster and go learn to surf instead. Go be a lawyer and live in Malibu, whatever, the gang life is all bullshit.

Then they go to prison. And they get caught up in the whole prison thing. A lot of them turn gay in prison. I saw a guy who had a wife and kids, he got caught up in gangs and drugs and ended up in prison, and then he came out of prison gay and divorced his wife so that he could go deal drugs and be with his gay prison buddies. It is all bullshit.

Gangs, and prison, and all of that bullshit, I have seen it over and over, and it is all bullshit. 

Also, a lot of the guys who were trying to be so tough end up committing suicide. It is all bullshit. My Uncle spent 14 years in prison, and then committed suicide here in my apartment.

Gangs, and drugs, and crime, it is all bullshit. And when I see people who were good kids, and now they are covered in tattoos and they are on drugs, etc, I hate it. 

That is what is happening in Chicago. They all want to see who can be the toughest gangster. And it is all bullshit of course. They are killing each other over bullshit. 

Salute,

Tony V.

A fine example of illegal police practice (Kid's tweet) and legal demonstration so long as they removed the flag when they were done. Otherwise, it's littering.

And no, Blue Lives do NOT matter more.

More than ?

Ask the folks in the image who are holding a sign saying "Blue Lives Matter More," Ward, if you cannot understand their implication.

"They think they'll do better if they keep the schools closed."
~Donald Trump on the conspiracy to do just that.

Yeah, those pediatricians sure are after him for that!

Trump's oddest belief: a finite about of energy in your life.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/13/politics/donald-trump-health-exercise-battery-theory/index.html

(It remains odd that he believes that he spends less time golfing than Obama did, but Trump is very self-deceitful.)
