Obviously, those with insurance will be paid by the insurance companies according to their policies. Will it be enough? My guess is probably not, many of those companies will wait to see if the pending and future lawsuits award damage payments, which the insurance companies will say their liability is reduced or even eliminated depending on the policy liability details.

About those lawsuits, which are certain to be filed everywhere and anywhere damages were sustained, many times those things get settled out of court but who pays for the settlements? Ultimately it's the state and local taxpayers, right? This crap has been going on for how long now? Years and years, going back to Watts and other places some 30 years ago. Consider Minneapolis:

More than 400 businesses were damaged during the riots, with rebuilding costs estimated at more than $500 million. Some of the worst damage took place on this stretch of Lake Street in Minneapolis. Who comes up with $500 million? By the way, it's probably more than that.
Add the other cities, and you are talking about billions of dollars. Also, what about the lawsuits from citizens outraged that Democrat leaders let their businesses burn? Consider this:

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) and city leaders will seek federal assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to "offset" the cost of damage repairs, the Star Tribune reported. Walz's administration is reportedly discussing the matter with Minnesota's congressional delegation, including with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D).


Hurricanes, tornados, flooding, fires, etc., natural disasters are one thing but but this crap is another. And it could've been avoided or at least reduced but wasn't for purely political reasons. How many of us are willing to pay federal tax dollars for the damages done in Minneapolis, Seattle, and many other places, especially when the cops were told to stand down and not interfere? Now think about what Biden would do if he is elected president and the Dems take the Senate: first, DC becomes the 51st state and the Dems get 2 more Dem Senators. That'll make it a lot harder for the Repubs to get their majority back, dontcha think? The Dems are talking about trashing the filibuster, meaning it'll be no different from the House and a simple majority is all you need to do whatever you want, especially if the president is Joe Biden or another democrat. Who do you think will end up footing the bill for all that riot damage then? Take a wild guess. Then who do you think will bail out the fiscally insolvent states, mostly the blue ones? Take another look at the Green New Deal, an estimated $94 trillion in more spending. Not even Trump on his worst day would do that. And who will pay for it? Us, that's who. Won't be me though, I'm 72 and retired. It's the young people in their 20s and 30s who will be totally fucked. And the worst part is, they don't even realize it. That's how powerful the MSM is. Feed 'em bullshit and tell 'em it's chocolate. Yum.

1, Yes, the poor taxpayers will have to pay for a lot of losses caused by those bad people who looted.

2. The poor taxpayers are also paying the families of young gentlemen who were defiant and violent and subsequently fatally shot by police officers in self-defense.

Who says that crime does not pay?

No, it sucks to be all of us, because I'm sure you don't believe that those states aren't going to try to pass the cost along to the federal government, ie. the taxpayers of other states.

A lot of property owners aren't going to rebuild, whether they are compensated for their losses or not.

Thousands of fires were set more than 50 years ago in the MLK Riots.

In many cities of the rust belt, the lots are still vacant in the urban prairies.

Taxpayers are always the ones that will ultimately pay. Higher taxes, higher prices, closing stores, leading to less competition, leading to higher costs.

My Taxes HAD to pay for Trump's security, GOLF, incompetence and stupid policies, so you have NO right to complain about paying for Democratic policies, when they are in power. Just suck it up, and DEAL with it, snowflakes.

I hope, that the assholes who paid to have the bricks dropped off at the various pre planned riot sites are held to account and that THEY are forced to pay for every penny of damage.

Your taxes pay for things that are standard to every administration, and no one is interested in hearing you whine about it or attempt to compare it to paying for uncontrolled rioting simply because you think governing the country should change according to whether or not your candy ass likes the officeholder or not.

We will not be "sucking up and dealing with" your support of lawless chaos simply because you feel justified in it by your agenda, and the only snowflake here is YOU and your crybaby routine of "Paying for riot damage is JUST like me having to accept losing an election, WAAAAHHHH!!!!"
