Is the Mayor of Baltimore dumber than a tree stump?

After reading this, I would say the tree stump is far smarter

Amid a surge in killings, Mayor Catherine E. Pugh walked West Baltimore streets Tuesday morning — a procession of police commanders and city agency representatives in tow — to see first hand the work of her Violence Reduction Initiative.

The strategy floods targeted neighborhoods with services, with the aim of controlling crime. The mayor wanted to see how things were going and hear from residents she met along the way.

But she also had a few points of her own to make.

In a cramped convenience store on Pennsylvania Avenue, she peered into a booth where a cashier stood behind plexiglass.

“What time do you-all close?” the mayor asked the man behind the counter.

“11:30,” the cashier replied.

“Isn’t that late?” the mayor said. “That’s a little late. It keeps the crowds around here. Nine o’clock is nice. We need you-all to close at 9 o’clock at night.”

Asked about it after the mayor left, the man, who wouldn’t give his name, did not commit to closing the A&M Grocery any earlier.

Good Freaking Grief! See this is how the left thinks. If bad people do bad things, the solution is to punish/restrict/dictate that good people change. Stuck on Stupid!

Gay man goes on rampage with big mouth bass, fellow gay man hardest hit

You cannot make these things up

Police in the historic fishing village of Sebastian were dispatched after a domestic dispute between two homosexual men ended up with one nursing a head wound from a novelty fish.

It what may be remembered in local lore as the Big Mouth Billy Bass beat down, the cops arrested 54-year-old Gregory Carney on a domestic battery charge following a quarrel over the popular singing fish replica resulted in bodily harm.

52-year-old Larry Timmerman was smacked in the dome by his lover of 17 years after he became agitated over being teased with Big Mouth Billy which threw in the trash after becoming sufficiently pissed.

The two came to blows after Timmerman confronted Carney over the missing musical fish.

Your shockingly not very shocking news of the day

So, how bad will climate change really be…………..

Pirates Cove has the reveal

(UK Express) CLIMATE change is likely to be markedly less severe than forecast, a study claimed yesterday.

It predicted that the impact could be up to 45 per cent less intense than is widely accepted.

So, we are not all going to perish then?

You really want equality?

Oh how communists pedal the ideal of equality. And how fools lap it up

For those who believe income inequality is a major issue with capitalism, Cuba provides a perfect example of how socialism and communism conquered this problem. The communist Castro dictatorship has achieved income equality in Cuba by ensuring — at the point of a rifle — everyone is equally poor and miserable. The probabilities of any Cuban reaching any economic class higher than impoverished without being an elite of the communist party or having political connections to those in power on the island are slim to none.

While some may believe income equality is a monumental and nearly impossible task, Cuba’s Castro dictatorship has shown that is quite easy. All you need to do is have the state confiscate all the money, property, and assets of the population and turn everyone into a pauper.

Everyone is equally poor, except of course, those in power who are doing the confiscating. They get to live like kings, jet-set around the world, hang out with celebrities, and enjoy yacht vacations on the Mediterranean. But if you really want to stamp out “income inequality” and make the masses economically equal, that is the price you will have to pay.

Income equality? A very idealistic notion, but, in communist nations like Cuba, well, equality of destitution is the reality

Cuba has income equality.  Verifying this requires a careful look at the data.  Most sources – for example, Brookings – cite a per capita income of about $240 per year.  Wikipedia cites about $22,000 per year, so be careful with your information sources.  The government employs 78% of the workers, so there is little opportunity to get an income very different from the average.  How can people survive on a salary of practically nothing?  Thanks to the government, Cubans get free food and medicine.  They get subsidies for virtually everything they might buy.  As a result, someone getting no salary is only slightly worse off than someone with a relatively high income.  In all practicality, Cuba has as close to income equality as a society can provide.

Cuba also has abject poverty and child prostitution.  Before the 1959 revolution, Cuba exported $780 million (1959 dollars) of goods, mostly food.  Now it imports 70% to 80% of the food that it consumes.  The result is that Cubans risk their lives in shark-infested waters to escape.

See equality works, and all it will cost you is any chance of prosperity, and liberty.
