Perhaps the cops wanted a bit of looting to justify their actions?

Anything is better than the pending media circus around one of their own, shooting an unarmed black teen, with no criminal record?

Let me be clear......:finger:

Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday condemned the "looting and willful efforts to antagonize law enforcement" in Ferguson as unacceptable.

What a cunt. Never found a banker he could prosecute? But points the finger first, at those who have been living under an out of control police department.

Its business has been particularly hard-hit in the developing world, partly because of concern among customers following revelations by former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

Someone needs a new router...

Snowden says is the truth about the internet outage. An elite hacking unit in the National Security Agency had reportedly been attempting to install malware on a central router within Syria — a feat that would have allowed the agency to access a good amount of the country's internet traffic. Instead, it ended up accidentally rendered the router unusable, causing Syria's internet connection to go dark

You create government toll roads.

What? State take bids from construction and toll operators around here. They tend to be privately built and operated, in theory, at little to no State expense, except for that sweet eminent domain land seizure stuff.

Governmental entities can create private corporations and act on their behalf thus blurring the line between public and private—a consequence of private toll road deals such as the ones used to finance the Trans-Texas Corridor and other private toll road that have since emerged. The lack of distinction between private and public entities unravels most of the landowner protections built into the bill, which are only enforceable depending upon the category the entity belongs to.

Wisdom Seeker wrote:

My point was that when there's legitimate competition, and the marketplace isn't horribly distorted by perverse incentives, the private sector does deliver things that government-regulated monopolies fail at.

What about toll roads vs. government roads? I doubt privatizing police and fire work out so well.

Libertarian Utopia!

Tax cuts enacted in Kansas in 2012 were among the largest ever enacted by any state, and have since been held up by tax-cut proponents in other states as a model worth replicating. In truth, Kansas is a cautionary tale, not a model. As other states recover from the recent recession and turn toward the future, Kansas’ huge tax cuts have left that state’s schools and other public services stuck in the recession, and declining further — a serious threat to the state’s long-term economic vitality. Meanwhile, promises of immediate economic improvement have utterly failed to materialize.
