But who would want to blame our charismatic president? Certainly, a guy as nice as him should know something about economics, right?
Wrong.
We should expect more poverty across the country as this white house ruins our economic system.

With the Govenor’s ear “wide open,” why don’t you invite the State Employment Office down to 1) train ya’ll for jobs, 2) give employer tests and application forms, 3) get a life!

Ferguson should be renamed Little Detroit.

They lack opportunity because they lack education.

The community will get even poorer now that businesses have been burned and looted. Those businesses will not return.

If that were true the poorest people in our country live in Appalachia would have the highest crime rate.
