Steal shoes for justice!

I LIVED IN SANTA MONICA a spell around 1965. I worked in a Beverly Hills car lot, parking the Cadillacs of the One-Percenters, but I didn’t feel resentful. Had I not been so broke, I would have had more fun, maybe even stayed in California.

Perhaps if a rogue cop had killed an unarmed thug on the other side of the country during my time in Santa Monica, I could have easily plundered some stores as payback for that death, and pocketed some moolah.

Or maybe not. I was not raised that way.

Here’s an engaging video about Black Lives Matters “protests” in Santa Monica, which apparently now considers itself a socialist paradise. We did not see ourselves that way when I lived in Santa Monica. It was just a fun beach town.

  1. Pent-up demand for lack of eyeglass frames. Never mind that those frames need lenses specific to individual needs.

  2. “The poor looters couldn’t help themselves.” That’s what one overeducated libtard told me. It looks to me like they definitely were helping themselves, and not one of those looters looked underfed or deprived. I am so, so perplexed that all but a couple of the looters were of the same race as Pretty Boy Floyd.

  3. Unbelievable that these are not riots, and looters just peaceful demonstrations. How long can people put up with this B.S. from politicians? I hope there is a giant red wave come November, and maybe get some sanity in the U.S.

    1. Kirk: These difficult days should be helping Trump a lot. There is still, however, the possibility of massive voter fraud on the part of the DNC. The nonstop hysteria since Trump took office prove Democrats will stoop to any level. Vote by mail indeed. When I vote in Mexico, I must go to the polling station, show my laminated, full-color voter ID with photo, and that is how it should be. And you have to PROVE you’re a citizen to get the Voter ID. They don’t just take your word for it as they do in many areas of the United States.

    1. Phil: No doubt to keep it accessible to poor folks. When I lived there, I was a poor folk, and nobody was keeping the rent low. Of course, that was long before California went berserk in so many sad ways. If that Asian couple reopens their optometry business, I sure hope they do it out of not just Santa Monica but California. Texas is a good alternative, always.

  4. Every time I think things can’t get any more ridiculous in this country, I am proven wrong once again. Things have gotten beyond ridiculous. The Huns are pounding away at the gate, and there is not a damn thing we can do about it.

  5. Fixed bayonets! Or maybe machine guns. Remember how they ran in Sharpeville? Looters get shot in civilized countries.

    1. Señor Gill: I’ve read that at least one, maybe more, Democrat mayor has told the cops they cannot use tear-gas. I think tear-gas is an excellent thing to use. At least at the get-go. It can escalate upwards from there.

        1. Don Guillermo: As I wrote earlier, advocating the defunding of police is imbecilic. And, of course, it’s only being heard in Blue States where, not coincidentally, most of the riots are taking place.

        2. Don Guillermo: Whoops, I wrote Red states where I meant Blue states. I fixed it. Always seems odd to me that conservative states have the color of communism. Should be the other way around, no?

  6. The good news is that looting and police violence have subsided even as the protests have increased. It even looks like more mask wearing and separation are occurring. Now if we could just get something from the Federal Government besides irrelevant tweet-boasting from the bunker…

    1. Creigh: Well, of course, this is going to taper off. Looting down, great. Police violence subsided? There has been little police “violence.” A couple of cops, since fired, in Buffalo, I believe it was, did push that old man down, injuring him. Aside from that, police have just been doing their jobs. Mask wearing and separation? I think those days are about over. As for Trump’s Tweeting, he does go overboard at times, but it’s just part of his wacky charm.

  7. With mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting, the Dems may be able to steal the next election. No matter who wins, someone will call fraud. This will not end well. Where will society be if Biden is president? He will be a puppet of the loony left for as long as he lasts. But then, it will be Stacy Abrams or Kamala Harris.

    1. Señor Gill: Lord knows what sort of pandering vice-presidential candidate Biden will be forced into accepting. The good news is that a loony nominee will help Trump. The only reason Biden was the last man standing in the Democrat primaries were the wacko alternatives.
