really? You need a laundry list, do you?
racial tensions escalated. we are seeing it regularly in the news. That pretty much DRIED UP not long after the 60′s and 70′s, and now he gets in and we have it all over again. Angry blacks, not all, but many now. HE DID IT with his partners in creating social unrest and a “good crisis” that they can’t let go to waste. A complicit secret combination working obviously together to create this scenario we find ourselves in . A form of “wrecking the country.”
He also divides on MORAL grounds, DIVIDING the country. He pushes Obamacare, as if he cares, but now they try to use it as a hammer to force religious people to perform abortions, providing services against their religious and faithful conscience, against the 1st Amendment Bill of Rights that says govt shall not infringe. WrECKING the country.
Don’t forget he is the gay president too. WRECKING marriage. Promoting the blaspheme which is not biblical. A form of WReCKInG Christianity which founded this country.
Don’t forget how he continuously TRAMPLES the Constitution with his threat and actions with his pen and phone, to bypass Congress and the Articles of the Constution, WRECKING the founding documents of the COuntry.
I could go on but the Blaze won’t let me.

The CLINTONS too are unraveling in their lack of transparency, we are finding out that they are also complicit in selling USA “security” to the Russians through a canadian sale to them that benefits their Clinton Foundation and buys access to world leaders. Such corruption on parade now!

…and there is a THEY.. It is the elite, the powerful, the rich, the godless, the people in high places of government and placing people in high levels of government. They do exist, and there is a secret combination that seeks to overthrow the whole world, every nation. They seek for power. We can see these people aligning, we can even see Obama doing it. He is aligning with all the wrong people, the wrong countries. Russia, Iran, Muslim leaders, etc.
IT IS OBVIOUS NOW.

Some of us can see the bigger picture. This problem is much much bigger than Baltimore. Nowadays the whole world is watching. Obama and friends start this racial social war and its translating to the streets now. If we are not careful it WILL escalate to martial law and maybe civil war. I can easily say that those two things are much much worse than a temporary breaking of glass and smashing cars. Those little TINY property damages are NOTHING compared to losing our freedoms throughout the land. If the USA loses them, then so does the rest of the world. If they can conquer the USA, they win the world.

This isn’t your ordinary situation. This is a sweeping problem throughout the country, caused by OBAMA and friends. If we are not careful, they will achieve the martial law they so crave.

Remember LA. Remember ROdney King riots. Remember a BILLION dollars of damages. This is a peanuts problem, maybe because an already angry group is not provoked.
Which is worse? A bit of this, or civil war? Are we really ready to take it to that level, because if we are not careful this is where it will head. If they don’t calm down, then we have no choice, right? But they MIGHT calm down. I think they are thugs. But thugs can calm down, or if agitated, they can stir it all up 24×7. Is that better? Of course its not.

Sue? How about just a simple insurance claim instead?
Is it criminal to strategize on de-escalating a violent situation? I think its called “stand down” and it does work sometimes for the better.
Because tolerance will be viewed as acceptance or in this case outright approval and the problems will increase. Better a few heads get cracked now to send a message that see an entire city or civilization burn to the ground later. Harsh truths man, harsh truths...
"How about just a simple insurance claim instead?"
Sure, as long as your policy covers the damage.
Re: "Is it criminal to strategize on de-escalating a violent situation? I think its called “stand down” and it does work sometimes for the better."
A lawsuit for damages would not be a criminal matter -- it would be a civil suit.
As far as the balance of harms: if a city makes a determination to let Person A destroy Person B's property because stopping Person A would cause grave injury to Person A, then I can see that calculation . . . BUT Person B should be entitled to be made whole by the city.
appeasement doesn't de-escalate anything, it makes it more likely to increase

In LA with Rodney King trial and cops getting off and a billion dollars worth of damage in LA, those frustrated and angry people would not have done it if there was some justice for the cops. If people get agitated by the system, if these people had a police crack down instead of a moment to vent, there is no doubt in my mind that it would have excalated and made things worse. Am I the only one in this thread who gets this concept?
Hot head responses are harmless, but they reveal a mindset that tolerance and strategy is secondary to getting even. getting even is only going to escalate things. Play it smart. The mayor may be making a very smart calculated choice to REDUCE overall damage by placating a bit. Something to think about.
Um, no. Allowing criminal activity to run rampant in the street under the guise of "protest" is not ok.
Thought about it, you're WRONG! A tale of two mayors: Rawlings-Blake and Giuliani!
how about bringing the dirty cops to justice and avoiding riots in the first place? how about punishing the criminals when they break the law and doing what they are paid to do, protect the property and citizens from animal behavior
[-1] April 26, 2015 at 10:25pm
that may not be it at all. It may be a strategy to bring about LESS violence, less property damage, in the long run, but letting them get it out of their system and give it to “Tha Man” for a small moment. Broken glass and car stuff is cheap, the insurance companies have it covered. No tax payer money in this.
"No taxpayer money in this"
You're obviously an idiot..... So, you think that the insurance companies got this? The people who buy insurance, including those in states far away from the stupidity that is taking place, got this. A State Farm policyholder in Texas is paying for the damage every bit as much as the people who are having their property destroyed in Baltimore.
April 26, 2015 at 10:23pm
I remember Rodney King and 1 BILLION dollars in damages in that riot.
Maybe a million dollars of damage is better than a BILLION? Just saying.
Knew you wouldn’t like the logic of this, but going in there with a Barney Fife attitude that you are going to bring a gang to justice, is only going to escalate. It will bring in more from out of town. It will grow into a civil war.
Maybe some restraint is the LEAST EXPENSIVE option here. Not a liberal, but I am smart about the money. We can learn from the past. We can learn from the nonsense in LA over the Rodney King beating, and the expections of the black community, and what happened when those cops got off for over beating the man. we should LEARN from the past.
This riot and the long history of black mob violence unchecked in B-more will ensure that sane people will never go there again when they have a choice. So the cost could reach $Billions very quickly.
I know I'll never go near there ever again. But then I haven't been off the highway in MD since 1984. And even now when I have to pass through MD it is just that narrow spur way to the west.
To this violence, add the state police targeting out of state cars with NRA stickers on them and the reasons to not go to MD keep piling up.

EVERY single “joke” was a LIE to deflect the truth about HIMSELF towards others. Not even funny. All I could think of was what a hypocrite… He can’t tell jokes about HIMSELF and put it all on other people, not when he’s wrecked the country.
Sorry to tell you this, but you're either and idiot or a liar.
Every point you have brought up is a load of hogwash. In your bigoted, right-wing mind racial tensions and inequalities have not existed because you live in a white evangelist world where you obviously don't come into contact with low-income afro Americans. What you don't see, or refuse to see, you assume doesn't exist. Although that may be a comfortable stance to take, it's also a lazy and ignorant one. And when someone (the President in this case) brings attention to the fact that racial injustices still exist, you “shoot the messenger” so to speak and call HIM of all people a racist. Completely ridiculous and disingenuous.
How is providing people with affordable health care morally wrong??
Obamacare forces religious people to perform abortions?? You're making things up.
There's a good chance scotus will legalize gay marriage, so live and let live and get over it. And no, America was NOT founded on Christianity. The founding fathers stood for separation of church and state in the spirit of the age of enlightenment.
“The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded upon the Christian Religion.” 1797, The Treaty of Tripoli, initiated by President Washington, signed by President John Adams, and approved by the Senate of the United States.
Lastly, when it comes to bypassing congress, Obama has if anything been pretty moderate in comprison to his predecessors. Look it up.
 April 24, 2015 at 7:23pm
“deep-seated …religious beliefs …have to be changed”
She's talking about Muslim beliefs that keep women 2nd class citizens
 April 24, 2015 at 7:06pm
First of all, OBAMA doesn’t know ANYthing that’s not supplied to him on his Teleprompter screen, written by others, controlled by cabals.
He is in no position to lecture anybody about things he doesn’t know about.
April 23, 2015 at 9:01pm
Well Mike, I’m pushing 60, have many grandchildren, and have worked 3 businesses at one time, very busy man here, and have made millions. The fact that you think I’m a kid is tremendous. Just shows how much into stereotypes and close-mindedness you are.
I have more experience than you have, but I value my privacy enough to keep it to myself. Good luck with your nest egg. Your experiences are not universal.
April 23, 2015 at 2:39am
I believe in FREEDOM of RELIGION, and do not condone hatred of a religion… like Muslim. Since when did we fight whatever religions we deemed a cult???
Its unAmerican. Anti-Bill of Rights, First Amendment.
April 23, 2015 at 2:35am
I think he did lump them together. But your saying the Chinese people tolerate a government that is haters of Christ. I say, they don’t have a Bill of Rights. They don’t have arms, they don’t even VOTE. So you can NOT say that they “tolerate” this condition. I am not certain that many in government also don’t know what to do about it, because of fear, but they are NOt enemies of Christ.
is Obama an enemy of CHrist? What about our OWN leaders in this country? What about our Roe vs Wade and our abortion rate being on PAR with China who is without the light and truth that the USA has had?
Is the USA under condemnation? I think it is. They have had freedom and the gospel of CHrist, but now these things are being rejected for wickedness, gay marriage, sinful conduct, and teaching of the most degenerate things in the public school systems. Hollywood is also having a huge HUGE corrupting influence, and it all has a big green light in the USA.
Not in China. They reject gay marriage. They don’t have porn on their TV stations. They don’t have HALF the sins the USA has, and those people are for the most part, INNOCENT and without opportunity to change or choose many things. Same with many Muslims.
USA needs to get off the self-righteous horse and realize what has happened to the Country, and its not pretty.
April 23, 2015 at 2:18am
its still socialism that way… because the LITTLE amount of taxes paid by “entry level” people doesn’t begin to pay for all their benefits.
April 23, 2015 at 2:16am
Bigun, I have done the analysis. Over 25 years ago I analyzed that even $50,000 per year was ENTRY LEVEL salary. I knew, I was making it, and the money was always gone. I had a house, cars, and basic expenses. Nothing more. 50 grand a year was not barely enough.
$15/hr is going to bring a PART TIME job at 20 hours a week, so that corporations don’t have to foot the bill for insurance for these people. That’s $300/week, or about $1200 a month before taxes. WOW! Such a lot of money!!!
That’s about $15,000 a year, only 1/3 of what is needed to make ends meet, in 1990!!! Now its 2015, so please, realize you are dead wrong on all this.
April 23, 2015 at 2:12am
Yes, because $15/hr would certainly buy mansions filled with free luxuries.
Ridiculous argument #243… and counting.
April 23, 2015 at 2:10am
Yes, because it is a slothful lifestyle to flip burgers, stock shelves, dig ditches, and a host of other activities that BREAK OTHER PEOPLE’s BACKS. And they are rewarded with oppressed wages that don’t have enough value now. How is this much different than slave labor in countries where the goods Americans consume are manufactured, and those people slave all day and night, and get paid FOOD. How is this justified?
They call the Americans lazy because they want to be paid a decent wage. SO do those other countries, but there is no one going to bat for them there.
