    Something like 80% of inner city families want school vouchers. Who is standing in the way of that?

The money is taken by the councils and chiefs and that which goes to the people themselves is, generally, not always, wasted on alcohol and drugs.

    When the people seem not interested in using handouts to better themselves, it becomes a massive waste of taxpayers dollars.

    I’m not seeIng much evidence yet that youse yins have any idea what you’re doing, how to move past this or anything. Come on folks, get a grip, and chill out. Stop the agressive dressing up, loud voices, and Presidential tweets. The police should hand out soft drinks and sandwiches to protesters, and chill. Observe the power of love.

    If they had rioted and pulled the cops off of Floyd when it was happening, then your analogy would be apt. That didn't happen.

    George Floyd's brother is on TV right now denouncing the violence and looting and asking for peaceful protests.

    I thought you were one of the people arguing that masks only help you if you keep social distancing? That masks don't prevent catching COVID, just reduce how far it spreads from coughing if you have it?

    The Daniel Shaver story was hotly debated here on TWeb, as was the mentally ill man in California whose name I can't remember.

    Reportedly a number of police officers in various cities are kneeling/marching in front of news cameras then turning on the tear gas once the media leaves.

    As I've said before, I would be in favor of reparations if it was limited only to those who have actually been enslaved, paid by those who have actually owned slaves.

    Right... if government handouts were the answer, then government housing, affirmative action, welfare checks, tax payer funded schools, etc. should have solved the problem decades ago.
