    Just one more to go.

    NYC, Chicago toast in another 5 years as everyone that pays the majority of taxes will leave and never again return. So just need LA to burn down for a 2nd time and it'll be a trifecta.

    But like all liberals they'll blame the conservatives for taking the jobs and people and so must be punished. Yeah California has been pushing that one for about 15 years now where they want the Feds to cut off funds to places like Florida and Texas due to that.

    Yep. This is why I’m happy Trump is blocking the new stimulus. The terribly run states are attempting to use the virus to pay for decades of fiscal mismanagement. brutal.

    Yup, don't forget the Scorpions, Snakes, no shade, $500 electric bills, toxic water filled with chromium and chlorine. Auto insurance is 2x because of the blue hairs and illegals oh and emissions testing and skyrocketing housing cost.

    Problem is it's not just Chicago, it's the whole state of Illinois. On paper, the state is so over committed on pensions it's insane. The whole state is underwater, they just don't know it, or give a shit.

    In the heat of things in June there was a protest planned a few blocks from one of our stores in Wichita (Newmarket Square). Walmart, target, lowes etc all closed early (3pm) and put pallets of mulch or carts across the entrances. Police had us sign paperwork to allow them to remove people for loitering on our property, went through the whole area, every store.
    Thank god Kansas gun laws are awesome...
    We parked trucks infront of the glass storefront and stood outside with ARs, and other long guns as well as sidearms. Setup KZs and had plans...
    Thankfully they stayed 2 blocks south and there were enough business owners with weapons standing infront of their stores they didn't get enough courage to get "going" when it got dark.
    So glad in Denver they stay by the capital, although the crap in Aurora is getting close to a store.

    The whole "they have insurance" pisses me off to no end... we have insurance, it considers riot and looting as a theft loss that is capped, and it's not that much. All acts that are considered part of the riot are then "theft" so if they finish by burning the store, everthing past the theft cap it's out of our pockets.

    Need to start hiring some Blackwater security.....

    If a corporation is a "person", it has a right to protect its property with force... No?
