These riots in Baltimore: As I sit back and watch this, I hear the same three things. The LEFT and the RIGHT and who is to blame. Who cares? I mean…..really. When the earthquake in Nepal was ongoing and the buildings were falling around them, do you think they were asking each other, “who built that building that just fell on my brother?” NO! They were trying to save their own lives and others’ lives. We can litigate who’s wrong later. The bottom line is that you have angry, ticked off people burning down an American city (at least in parts). Why don’t we figure out why they are angry and ticked off, and instead of punishing everyone in a city block, empower them to succeed in life. The problem with Government is that it only knows how to regulate; it has no clue how to empower people. You empower people by taking a 15 year old kid off the streets that’s throwing rocks at police and robbing/burning the CVS and you offer him a choice: 1. Jail OR…. 2. Empowerment….. ;He gets to choose. Get him in a “good” school. Not the SH hole down the street he’s been going to. Get him away from his criminal friends. Find out what his dreams are/what he likes to do. And give him the vehicles to learn, grow and do it. And, then tell him he lives in America and that he can do anything he wants. The difference in those kids and me is that I had parents who told me I “could do anything I put my mind to” in life and that only I would get in my own way. I didn’t hear so called leaders in my community constantly telling me that something or someone was against me. If you believe that or continually keep hearing that, it will manifest itself into truth. I had a mom and a dad and I went to two really good schools with mostly smart teachers who had brains and judgment and goodwill. Get these kids away from these apathetic teachers, in failing schools, out of these criminal households, empower them and tell them they have a chance and they’ll be too busy studying or succeeding to be ticked off at police, throwing rocks in the damn street burning down a Charity senior citizen home or getting themselves killed. It will cost us much less tax money to save these kids than it will to put them in jail for the rest of their lives because no one every gave a rat’s a** And, by all means, get some leaders in the local Goverments who have a brain and who will run at problems instead of run from them. They talk a good game on the election stump and then act like wimps in office.

In this Bryan Crabtree show podcast Brian explains what he thinks happened before the video started rolling of Officer Slater firing eight rounds into an unarmed black man, Walter Scott, that killed him.
“He took my stun gun,” says officer Slater. He feared for his life. That was the initial story after Walter Scott was shot dead on Saturday, April 4, 2015 in North Charleston SC by Michael T. Slager, 33, who is now charged with murder. It seems there was someone taking cell phone video of the entire incident. The video shows the officer attempting to plant the taser near Scott, then picking it up after realizing that he was being watched. 8 rounds were fired at, unarmed, Walter Scott as he fled the officer. Seven months after the Michael Brown fiasco, it appears there is still something police departments and government hasn’t learned. What is it?
COMMENTARY AND COMPARISONS TO OTHER RECENT POLICE SHOOTINGS (WHAT HAVE WE YET TO LEARN?):
My opinion is that Hillary Clinton wins The White House if we keep fanning the flames of server email gate. Why? I’ll prove it to you; just listen.
Creflo Dollar of The Creflo Dollar Ministries recently published a Youtube video begging supporters (200,000 of them) to donate at least $300 a piece so the Church (eh – hmmm, HE) could buy a new Gulfstream $65 million jet. It appears the old Jet is just not good enough. Bryan dug up old audio that proves he’s not been telling the truth all along about who owns what and how he’s spending donations to the ministry.
Apple announced what may be the end of the Rolex and the beginning of the end of the smartphone. But does it do everything it should do? What big thing is missing?
Republicans want to raise your gas tax to levels much higher than neighboring states and Democrats want to continue denying you access to fireworks for Fourth of July (sales that would offset the money the state needs). Why do lawmakers have no clue how to make Georgia work for you and what is the true cost that could affect your bottom line?
Bryan reveals the new kind of “Shadow Inventory,” and it’s huge! What number are most housing professionals missing when they tell you how great the market is? Is this the “canary in the coal mine for another crash?”
In one of the most shocking and callous examples of Home Owners Associations cruelty to its residents, one Missouri HOA said NO PLAYHOUSE to a child with Leukemia. The playhouse was being donated by Make a Wish. Did this nasty HOA give in and allow the kid to have the playhouse? The answer may shock you.
