    Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
    When Blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-Blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
    Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the White rate.
    The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is Black and Hispanic.
    Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving Blacks and Whites, Blacks commit 85 percent and Whites commit 15 percent.
    Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are Black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When Whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are Black.
    Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a White than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
    Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
    Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
    Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.
    Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
    Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than Whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

    If there were a racial bias, it is blacks against whites.

    Clinton: It's 'heartbreaking' when IT workers must train H-1B replacements
    ------------------------
    So long as one's "feelings" are in the right place

    computerworldDOTKOM/article/3094484/it-careers/clinton-its-heartbreaking-when-it-workers-must-train-h-1b-replacements.html

    Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, on Monday criticized the replacement of U.S. IT workers with foreign labor but stopped short of offering a plan to fix it.

    But other than to express concern about the workers, it was unclear what Clinton was trying to accomplish in the interview. There was no discussion of specific reforms to attack the problems she cited, leaving critics of the H-1B visa program uncertain about her stance on the issue.

    Clinton seemed to acknowledge that the public is alert To the issue and that "everybody, with six degrees of separation either knows or thinks they know" someone replaced by foreign labor. But she may have also minimized the problem, according to critics.

    Said Clinton: "It's hard to argue an economic analytics abstraction that really it's not that much job displacement, and, you know, the overall economy is better," in citing the case for temporary visa holders made by supporters. "It's really hard when you are the one who has lost the job, when you are at Disney in Orlando and you are told to train your successors."

    Disney cut about 250 workers early last year after bringing in offshore contracting firms. IT workers complained about having to train foreign replacements.
    Missing the larger picture?

    After discussing the problem faced by Disney's IT workers, Clinton immediately mentioned how construction workers, replaced by undocumented workers, face something similar.

    Keith Barrett, a former IT worker Disney who was among those replaced by contractors, was not happy with Clinton's comments, which he called "depressing."

    Hi Mr. Momma,

    From your post: " If Trump cannot defeat a Hillary Clinton without corporate America's wallet, then America is far worse off than any of us could ever imagine."
    -----------------------------
    Money has an effect. Is it huge? I don't know. But, it is quite possible, that every dollar that Mr. Trump does not get, will be added to Ms. Clinton's war chest. Ms. Clinton graciously accepts tons of money from big business. And from foreign governments for that matter.

    Also from your post: "And then there is that forgotten entity called......the people."
    --------------------------------------
    No, they are not forgotten. "the people" are the ones that big business sells their products and services to. So long as they don't get too uppity and expect government to listen to them too.

    Best of luck,

    Hi Mr. Momma,

    From your post: "If you don't take their money, you don't owe them anything."
    -------------------------------
    Yes, but can one win an election without their money?

    That's the big question.

    The smaller question is, if Mr. Trump causes the big boys to stop donating to the republican party, what are all the other candidates of every legislative slot to do?

    That's the real crux of the problem. The republican party is a huge cash generating machine. The big corps pay into it, expecting to get special treatment out of it. Look at the recent work the republicans are doing with GMO labeling. This one project explains the whole thing. The majority of Americans, well into 80% want GMO labeling. The democrat party is pushing GMO labeling. But, the republicans are bucking the will of the majority on this one, and are pushing through a bill which will undermine real GMO labeling. Why? Because they are being paid to oppose it.

    If, when the big corporations are able to get what they want from government by making donations to the political parties, why not do it?

    However, when that stops working, why do it?

    Bottom line, big corps are likely to pull their support from the entire party, if that investment doesn't give them what they want.

    So, Mr. Trump has the potential to damage the republican party at every level.

    We shall see.

    Best of luck,

  • "GOP donors increasingly concerned about Trump"
    ------------------------
    Ya think? Why donate money to someone so unpredictable. The only way someone can donate to Mr. Trump's campaign is as an anti Clinton donation. But, most of the big money folks will likely do better with Ms. Clinton's plans than with Mr. Trump's.

    thehillDOTKOM/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/287165-republican-donors-increasingly-concerned-about-trump

    “I’m waiting for him to come forward as a statesman, and so far he hasn’t done it,” said Walter Stern, a longtime RJC board member and the vice chairman of a private equity firm, who hasn’t decided whether to give money to Trump.

    The current roster of RJC board members in 2012 donated at least $16.5 million to GOP nominee Mitt Romney's campaign and super-PAC. Through May, the RJC members have only given $5,400 to Trump's campaign.

    “My sense is that he has a blind spot when it comes to recognizing how his comments or actions can offend people,” said Ari Fleischer, an RJC board member and former White House press secretary.

    “He keeps making it harder for people who want to be for him to be for him.”

    Hi Mr. Bread,

    It's the recommendation by the FBI to not prosecute that really gets me. From what I have read, and heard, it is clear that there is substantial evidence indicating that Ms. Clinton is indeed guilty of multiple misdemeanors and felonies according to the law at the time they were committed. Indications are that she signed documents that she would not do what she did, before she did it.

    But, the FBI recommends not to prosecute because??????

    And those on the left, the Clinton supporters, still believe, as they did from the beginning of the first complaint, that this was not and still is not a criminal investigation.

    It boggles the mind how some people can be so delusional.

    Then, separate from the president, there's the state department itself. How on earth did they allow Ms. Clinton to put our security at risk for so long? Are they just a bunch of party hacks appointed to high positions as Ms. Clinton was?

    Where's the gate keeper?

    You can't just get someone to sign a paper saying they won't do something, then ignore what they do? You have to monitor it to make sure everybody is doing what they should be doing. There are too many people out there, like Ms. Clinton, that don't care what the rules are. They will just do what they want to do and say screw/wercs you to everyone else.

    So far, it looks as though corruption is evident for:

    1. The president
    2. Ms. Clinton
    3. Most or all of Ms. Clinton's staff
    4. The FBI
    5. Senior state department employees

    Whom will be charged with a crime?

    Nobody.

    Hi Mr. Bread,

    From your post: "he lied about sex ....she lied about national security"
    ---------------------------------------
    I don't believe there to be a distinction for perjury based on sex or national security. If one gives false testimony, it's perjury.

    On the threat to national security, Ms. Clinton has been given a pass by the current administration.

    Here's the test.

    Is anybody blaming Mr. Obama, for allowing his appointed secretary of state to put national security at risk?

    There's the real issue. The poor judgment of Mr. Obama to appoint such a total lunkhead as secretary of state. Apparently, that position is now reserved for pay back to party hacks.

    And the once great nation ontinues to devolve.

    Best of luck,

    Hi Mr. Bread,

    Bill Clinton, Ms. Clinton's husband, was impeached by the house of representatives for lying to congress. It came to nothing. The Clinton's are so slippery, they can lie to whomever they wish, and commit whatever crimes they want, so long as they do it slipperyly. That's their MO. And that's the kind of people we have running what was a great nation.

    Here are the two big questions:

    1. From the exhaustive FBI criminal investigation of Ms. Clinton, does the evidence point to her being guilty of multiple misdemeanors and felonies?
    Answer: Most Definitely.

    2. Is Ms. Clinton going to be charged?
    Answer: Of Course Not.

    No other questions on the subject are of any particular significance.

    If one were dumb enough to to discuss any of the other questions in an open forum, they are opening themselves up to very painful IRS audits over the coming years.

    Aren't you ready for democracy yet?

    Hi Mr. Diggler,

    Sounds like the school debate teams must all be on the same side of the issues now.

    It used to be that they would announce the topic the day before, to give participants a chance to research the subject, then on the day of the debate, they would flip a coin to determine which side a debater would be on. Sounds like now, both teams would be on the same side.

    If that's the case, maybe there will be no prior announcement or coin flip either. Instead of debating, each person just whines and vents their feelings on the subject without research or even understanding the topic. The louder the whining, the more points earned.

    Just like some on this board. LOL

    Best of luck,

    Anybody giving to a politician's charity is either stupid/diputs or corrupt.

    finance.yahooDOTKOM/news/us-rep-corrine-brown-indicted-fraud-investigation-151201102.html;_ylt=AwrC1Ci26H9XmnQAJXjQtDMD;_ylu=X3oDMTByOHZyb21tBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--

    U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida and her chief of staff have been charged with multiple fraud and other federal offenses in a grand jury indictment unsealed Friday after a federal investigation into a fraudulent charity with ties to the congresswoman.

    Brown, a 69-year-old Democrat, was to appear later Friday in Jacksonville federal court on charges of mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, obstruction and filing of false tax returns. She has represented a Jacksonville-based congressional district since 1993 — one of the first three African-Americans elected to Congress from Florida since Reconstruction— and is seeking re-election in a newly-redrawn district.

    The indictment comes after an investigation into the charity One Door for Education Foundation Inc., which federal prosecutors say was purported to give scholarships to poor students but instead filled the coffers of Brown and her associates.

    Also charged in the 24-count indictment was Elias "Ronnie" Simmons, 50, of Laurel, Maryland, who has served as Brown's chief of staff since 1993. It wasn't immediately clear from court records whether Brown and Simmons had attorneys to represent them.

    Earlier this year, One Door President Carla Wiley pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud after it as determined that she had deposited $800,000 into the foundation's account over four years. Over that time, federal prosecutors say it gave one scholarship for $1,000 and $200 to an unidentified person in Florida, while Wiley transferred herself tens of thousands of dollars.

    I see you have an idea there. It won't make the world better, so I'm not going to consider it. I don't consider other people's ideas anyway, since I already have this all figured out. So instead, just go along with what I want and you will see that with a little time and whole hell of a lot of money, things will get better and the world will get better while America is put back in it's place.

    Anybody want to guess whose attitude that is?

    Hello Suadela,

    Historically Frontline has carried a very low PE ratio. It is also the single most transparent company on the stock exchanges. The recent fall is because it just paid out a very nice dividend. It quite often cycles with the dividend pay out. Fromt 6 weeks before, running up to a day or a few before the ex-dividend date.

    The low PE is caused by how management rides the cyclic nature of the business cycle of the sector . Frontline generates large amounts of cash for periods of time, followed by periods of losses.

    In my opinion, this is not an investment grade security. It has broken many hearts and wallets over the years.

    It is best used as a trading vehicle.

    Best of luck,

    yahoo.com/news/clinton-expands-lead-over-trump-13-points-reuters-231732896.html?nhp=1

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton widened her lead over likely Republican nominee Donald Trump to 13 percentage points in a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday.

    The July 1-5 poll included responses gathered mostly over the holiday weekend, before the Federal Bureau of Investigation recommended on Tuesday that no criminal charges be filed against Clinton over her use of private email servers and what it called her "extremely careless" handling of classified information while she was U.S. secretary of state.

    The presumptive Democratic nominee led Trump, a New York businessman, by 9 percentage points in a previous Reuters/Ipsos poll that ran from June 27 to July 1.

    Tuesday's poll showed that 46 percent of likely voters supported Clinton, while 33 percent backed Trump. Twenty-two percent said they would not support either candidate for the Nov. 8 election.

    Throughout the campaign, Clinton has been dogged by her use of a personal email server during her years as the nation's top diplomat. Over the past several months, she has handed over thousands of pages of emails to investigators and responded to a number of government inquiries.

    Clinton has repeatedly said she never sent or received classified documents on her private servers, yet the public appears distrustful of her, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling. In early May, 63 percent of Americans, including 36 percent of Democrats, said they did not believe Clinton was "honest and truthful."

    But Clinton has led Trump most of the year among likely voters. Since mid-May, she has maintained a relatively consistent level of support among likely voters, while Trump's popularity has eroded as his campaign wrestled with a variety of issues.

    Republican leaders distanced themselves from Trump after he suggested a federal judge was biased because of his Hispanic heritage and after he doubled down on a pledge to b
