I predicted summer riots quite some time ago. They clamped down on people for too long and it was bound to happen. I didn't know what the flash point would be. I certainly didn't know something as brutal as what happened in Minnesota would come along. But I was certain something would trigger it.
We destroyed the jobs of millions of people yet allowed the big box corporate stores to remain open. In many states people can't even go out for a meal or have a beer in their favorite watering hole. There's little sports programming to watch. They even closed the national parks. Most of this had little to do with the spread of the virus. And we so absolutely got no leadership or even encouragement from the White House.
What surprises me is people are actually surprised there's rioting. Probably more to come.
