  3. Closed, due to orange man bad syndrome.

  4. Fellow PROTESTERS, we’ve got the power! Let’s add another chant: “REMOVE DONALD TRUMP!”

      I’ve made good use of my black Sharpie, writing all kinds of nasty things about him on my paper mask every time I have to go out. Except the last two weeks, when I switched to “Justice for George”.

      We should put all non Native Americans on Reservations, it would be humbling to say the least.

    Meanwhile $514 billion disappears from the care act and no one is held accountable.

    • All 514billion went to trumps resorts and hotels in Ireland and Russia 🇷🇺

      82% of that cares Act went to 43000 American at an average of 1.7 million dollars each. Real estate and hedge funds Scott 82% of debt 2.2 trillion dollar package. And Trump and Kushner both got their share. Now that they took most of the money they’re happy. They don’t need to pass another bill for the people. So that’s what happened to the cares Act.

  6. How about acknowledging how banks put up so many obstacles when blacks try to get loans, specifically mortgage loans. They will push them into equity loans and unsecured mortgages in the hopes that they can not meet their obligations when that interest rate rises… something like being a sharecropper.

  7. Trump’s Mar-a-lago golf buddies have nothing to complain about. Except that their staff could work a bit harder.

  8. There is not a single living human being on the planet who did not receive assistance from others. If you do not know this, you are dangerously ignorant.

    Dems have propagated the worst economic downturn in history. Never voting blue again

    • 15k DOW : Is your therapist just too busy to see you, trump troll? Or, scared to? Maybe check in with your proctologist and get that butt hurt seen to? 🙂

  10. Look how low the level of comment is in this thread, compared to all the others on YouTube? Perhaps there’s a statement there? When people don’t even want to look at it, how can it be changed? . . . Glad you’re talking about it seriously, at least

  11. By design
    The ones that reopened were burned by “peaceful protesters”.
    Nobody is voting blue.

  12. It doesn’t matter what anyone says or does! The nazi dog cops will continue to do as their masters tell them. They will crush the peasant uprising! Now that greedy, soulless corporations are “We The People” and money is “Free Speech.” Nothing has ever changed and nothing will, until we take our country back from the 1% pigs that have conned their way into control of our government. Their goal has always been to divide and conquer. If the ignorant peasants keep attack their fellow American peasants, attacking our government as worthless, then you don’t deserve self-rule. And the republican party, the filth of man will destroy this Democracy, handing it back to their 1% owner/donor masters. Listen to their report to their fellow owners… youtube.com/watch?v=Cy87kzKxkP8

      Red states are all welfare states that consume 85% of federal government subsidies. White women and children are the biggest demographic. Where do you get your information?

    More anti white racism,black people got affirmative action,and white middle class have obviously been better with their money,this is straight up full on hatred whenever we do well and its against the odds,were under privileged and against major pressure still do well and this is just constantly blame white people for our failings.

    Joe Biden wants more Police on every street corner. Joe Biden in 2002:: And what works in the fight against crime? It’s simple — more police on the streets.” “While most experts agree that these factors contribute to the crime rate, it is smart police work that makes the real difference. Put a cop on three of four corners and guess where the crime is going to be committed? On the fourth corner, where the cop isn’t. More cops clearly means less crime.”

    “That’s why I fought so hard to add police to the streets of Delaware and across the country. Eight years ago I wrote legislation to add 100,000 police to our streets. This program has funneled over $21 million to Delaware.”

    “Today, more than 220 newly-sworn in officers are on the streets of our state as a result, and nearly 200 more officers have moved from desk jobs to community policing units.”

    “I am fighting these cuts and will be working with Republicans and Democrats to restore COPS funds this year. Over the past eight years, the COPS program has contributed mightily to the nation’s unprecedented drop in crime. Now, at

    a time when crime is beginning to rise back up, is not the time to let up in the

    fight against crime. We need to provide more resources to our police, not less.”

    The Delaware State News • 20 August 2002

    Local crime must be cut and kept down

    By JOSEPH R. BIDEN Jr.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20030629104049/http:/www.joebiden.com/issue9.php

    As this paper recently reported, crime is down in our state’s capital, as it is across Delaware. But if the national trend is any guide, it may not stay down.

    Several weeks ago, the FBI reported that crime was up in the country for the first time in 10 years.

    Fighting terrorism is important, but you and I have a much better chance of being held up by a mugger than we do of being attacked by al Qaeda. As my friend, Gov. Tom Ridge says, the best way to secure the homeland is by securing the hometown.

    We can fight terror and fight violent crime at the same time, but we need to keep focused on what works.

    And what works in the fight against crime? It’s simple — more police on the streets.

    I’ve fought to help local law enforcement make our streets safer throughout my 30 year career in public service. Over the years, I’ve heard from people who say it’s the economy that causes crime, who say it’s the number of kids out after dark, or that it’s influenced by prisoners released back into society.

    While most experts agree that these factors contribute to the crime rate, it is smart police work that makes the real difference. Put a cop on three of four corners and guess where the crime is going to be committed? On the fourth corner, where the cop isn’t. More cops clearly means less crime.

    That’s why I fought so hard to add police to the streets of Delaware and across the country. Eight years ago I wrote legislation to add 100,000 police to our streets. This program has funneled over $21 million to Delaware.

    Today, more than 220 newly-sworn in officers are on the streets of our state as a result, and nearly 200 more officers have moved from desk jobs to community policing units.

    But the job clearly is not done. Cutting crime is like cutting the grass -just because you cut it down, doesn’t mean it’s going to stay there. You can’t cut your grass on Saturday and expect it to look good a month later. Nor can you watch crime drop one year and expect it to keep going down for a decade.

    Dover has done well with the law enforcement resources it has, but the fact that the first half of this year saw the highest complaint total ever for the city means we need to keep cutting that grass.

    The federal government can play an important role in helping states fight crime. Criminals here aren’t just from Delaware – they cross state lines from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and elsewhere – and the U.S. government ought to help local police departments track down and lock up these criminals.

    Earlier this year, the administration proposed gutting the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program by 80 percent. COPS is the only federal program targeted at adding police to the streets. It awards grants to help pay for community police and school resource officer salaries, as well as grants to help redeploy officers from behind their desks onto the streets.

    Police chiefs and mayors can apply directly for the funds – there is no red tape. And George Bush’s top cop, Attorney General Ashcroft, recently called the program “a miraculous success.”

    I am fighting these cuts and will be working with Republicans and Democrats to restore COPS funds this year. Over the past eight years, the COPS program has contributed mightily to the nation’s unprecedented drop in crime. Now, at a time when crime is beginning to rise back up, is not the time to let up in the fight against crime. We need to provide more resources to our police, not less.

    And most importantly, we need to give local cities and towns the tools they need to better protect our neighborhoods and make our streets safer for all Americans.

    Incompetent government officials and a criminal president equals the worst economy in history

    Ironic. They’re protesting is going to hurt them more than the racism they claim is holding them down
