What? You're over there wondering?16 million...MILLION jobs gone in the last 4 months....major...very big...long time stores and companies gone forever.

And no jobs for the millions upon millions of those soon to be desperate.

Rioting over this and BLM and others...hasn't even begun. And there is at least 10 million who aren't gonna get work...or $ from the gov very soon.





Man that's some really bad news


Howdy my friend! It is...and it's even worse...but it's how we roll as Americans. Adversity...no matter how troubling...makes us stronger ...

This however...soon will pitch neighbor against who-has-what neighbor...badly.

But we wil rise. We have to. We always do.

You take care over there, eh?!đź‘Ť

I mean all of a sudden rioting and looting and is starting to take over the cities in America I mean what is happening what's the reason behind it all in my opinion it has to do with unemployment and I've always said high unemployment rates to do things crime and those with mental disabilities hidden disabilities start to explode and can't cope with the new environment that one else to live in


Democrats are using these riots/lootings in attempt to make Trump look bad. It in reality it is only making them look bad. People are leaving far left cities in droves right now.

Democratic mayors/judges in places like Portland are letting these rioters out of jail, so they can go right back to rioting. Meanwhile the crooked leftist media is calling these riots peaceful protests, despite the fact the death toll is up to around 30 now. Plenty of videos of rioters throwing molotovs and blinding cops with lasers causing permanent vision loss.

One idiot was caught throwing an IED. Unlucky for him his grandma turned him in. Tell me in what world using IEDs (often used by terrorists) is peaceful?

Then you have the crooked Chicago mayor who cursed out an alderman when he begged her to do something about the rioters and the violence. www.youtube.com...

In short, all this rioting is fault of the leftist MSM and the Democratic Mayors and Governors who are trying to use these incidents to attack Trump and republicans. Every 4 years like clock work, racism becomes a problem because the Democrats #1 go to tactic, is to accuses Republicans of being racist, while they themselves are demonstrating outrageous in your face racism. Like always, double standards. Rules for thee, but not for me.

If you don't believe me look up the twitter stats. BLM makes a huge spike in activity every 4 years. I guess BLM only matters during election years.

There are plenty of threads on the riots on ATS with tons of videos, articles, and other info from members showing these riots are supported by the MSM and Democrats.

Why...... because we stopped beating our kids butts when they misbehaved.
because we stopped teaching them to say Please and Thank You..... sir and maame
because we taught them that the car has to look out for you.... not you need to look out for cars
because we started buying them the toy they demanded as they were throwing a temper tantrum in the store, instead of taking them outside and giving them a crack on the arse

Here is what I have noticed since August 1. People who are unemployed are losing their houses, foreclosed on by the bank. Renters are being set out, or moving out because landlords hound them daily for their rent. When the renter pays the rent on the fifth day of the month dropping it off at the landlords house at midnight minus the late fee... it is the beginning of the end. When a renter sleeps in until noon and fills the recycling can up with beer and wine bottles, they have become unemployed alcoholics. When they fail to answer the phone and return calls the end is near. So they steal to sell and pay for rent. I have seen two house set outs of personal property in the last week in a low income neighborhood. Why renters throw money on the driveway and all over the house is beyond me, these people have no concept of consequences of actions. There are a lot of unemployed desperate people currently. There are problems with drugs, violence, suicides as well. You just see the public angry vandalism. The blacks, the Mexicans have lost more people to the virus. People are angry, scared, and finically in trouble. Education is the salvation of anyone.

As we all know the buck stops at leadership.


Yes. I remember when Portland reminded the feds that they were in charge of Portland law enforcement. Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago also made it clear she was in charge. They all have been very vocal about jurisdiction. We have plenty of evidence of democrat politicians supporting the continued seige of American cities.

So the democrat leadership, in democrat cities, has made their position on who is in charge and how they feel about riots very clear.




So in your mind it's democrats and only democrats that are the reason your country is burning right now ?



Our "Country" isn't burning. Only people who watch too much TV think that. It's a few cities . A few democrat run cities. Luckily my democratic run city isn't allowing it. Our Law enforcement and leadership in this city doesn't play those political games

Why are you asking a question to which you know the answer? The reasons are contained in interviews, photos, videos, etc.

So the governor's asked the federal goverment for help did they, no they didn't.

You're talking out of your ass.




Well Chicago did... Portland didn't but they went there to protect a fed court house that the rioters wanted to burn down, and so the Feds do have jurisdiction there.

It seems there is a lot of jumping back and forth to what the President can or can not do and so the left is really cherry picking here. They blame him for not shutting down the country earlier when we all know it is the Governor's authority to do that, but Trump gets blamed for what? IDK... Then he gets blamed for sending in agents to protect fed buildings, but then is also blamed for not do anything to quell the violence even though he is ready to support at the fed level police reform while Cities are talking about defunding them.

I like Biden's last news conference where he didn't take a single question and only read word for word off his script. Its interesting he said if he was in charged he would mandate mask wearing nation wide...I don't think he can...but what is the punishment for breaking that if he can? 500, 5000, year in jail? lol Talk about Draconian and the Drac queen herself smiles and says this is what real leadership looks like. Jackboot demands...you want a police state where there you go...

The commander in chief approves of rioting and looting, especially when he can blame other people for it.

The commander in chief offered help and the lefties rejected it. You must be a Chinese agent

This is an impressive amount of projection. That's all you guys do here, so I'm kinda used to it, but way to raise the bar.

Oh, big shocker, you have no idea how our government works.

Add in so many young adults are out of school/work even when their parents are supporting them. How does 500 people riot for 90 days....They are either getting paid, or have nothing else to do, or both. Once they are back in school or working there will just be no time to riot anymore.

It amazes me that according to OrangeManBad, I mean “hopenotfeariswhatweneed” that Trump has so much power while Obama was so weak.

I mean, these BLM riots are all caused by DJ Trump. Obama was president for 8 whole years, and only had the Ferguson BLM riot, and apparently he didn’t even cause that one himself.

DJ Trump, on the other hand, invented the covid and blamed it on China, so he could stop Chinese people from traveling to the USA. Thus depriving the Biden Family of election fund donations.

DJ Trump is the reason everything sucks. There’s a thread on ATS about how it was him who took the McRib sandwiches away.

You have 500 rioters while 700k live there who are fed up with it, fed up with everything closing. I said before my friend told me all the coffeehouses and restaurants are gone within walking distance of his place where 2 years ago there was a dozen each. Big box stores are either already gone or leaving. Downtown Portland is turning into a ghost town of people living and crapping on the sidewalks and now riots each night.

I find it very interesting the NYC police union just endorsed Trump the other day...Strange times indeed.

The US, though maybe not christian had christian values, they are long gone. Greed is the culture


That's where your mistaken. This country had Christian values only in talk, never in practice.

I literally had to read your post twice to make sure you weren’t just kidding.

What do you mean why is there rioting and looting? You’re a member of ATS and you don’t know the answer to this question? 🤣

Here, let attorney General Barr explain it to you:

“ They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic… The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity.”

There ya go!

You’re welcome!

Good post, I would like to add just to this quote.

Christians are pretending to be Christians all while idolising the false prophet. Fun times.
Which false prophet are you referring to? Which Christians?

Not to mention the governors don't want him to solve the problem they have created.

Yep, the local general store owner told someone here that they have seen a lot of people lately they never saw before. It's a small community, albeit on the way to a big park....... but I thought it was interesting to note..... quite a few people came here to get away from big cities.
