R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

He seemed to be a good politician.

Elijah Cummings dies at 68

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

unless you live in MD....

nah, tbh he was not a good politician imo.

did nothing for baltimore, has a scandel going on with his wife and her profit and non-profit organizations with cummings orgs "donating" money to hers...

plus much more. but hey make your own choices on em

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

“Did nothing for Baltimore”, What the fuck have you done for Baltimore.

Not saying it’s cool to launder money, but it’s really not a scandal imo. They should just restrict people from running non profits and charities if they get caught up in shady dealings. Also churches/religious organizations should not generate exorbitant wealth that is untaxed, but that’s another thing altogether.

Considering his track record and how he dedicated his life to fighting for people who can’t stand up for themselves, I would call him a good politician.

If this was Trump instead of Elijah Cummings your tone would completely change.

Now back to our regular scheduled broadcasting...

If Cummings was president, commited about a hundred crimes and violated the constitution than we would talk about him the same way.

Trump has absolutely laundered money. Not even close to the worst thing he has done.

68 is young for an old guy, a bunch of them fuckers are in their 80’s. Dude didn’t have far to travel back and forth to work, that’d be alright.

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

Sad day for this country. Political figures with a sense of decency are few and far between.

R.I.P. Mr. Cummings.

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

1) im not representing baltimore as a delegate

2) no one is saying trumps a saint. dont change the subject, when he dies we can discuss he wrong doings

just saying.... the tone on the news channel comments are more so dont really gaf

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

He represented the city on the national level, he couldn’t have drafted and passed a bill to get funding that would help poor minorities get out of poverty or new roads/infrastructure. Are you serious, example: people in Michigan have been in a clean water crisis for years and finally a billionaire (who ironically was ceo of an electric car company) is stepping in to clean up the auto industries shitty environmental practices. If you wanted change locally get off your ass and go to a town hall or at the very least call you your state representative, please get involved. You have a voice, don’t just use it to criticize people for what they didn’t do.

1.) Youre also not a resident of Baltimore, it's not even your district. However the blame should be directed at the Mayor and local district politicians, not a State Representative.

2.) You're correct.

I looked into this "scandal" and can only seem to find references on it from the very rightwing news-o-sphere. I'll keep looking but it all seems like typical right wing talking points that's either blown a fairly mundane thing out of proportion or if there is malfeasance in this case, that whatever the issue was originally it will be beaten into the ground with all sorts of conspiratorial crap added that the truth will never be known.

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

Most people in the USA literally have no idea how their own government works, they blame whoever FOX (or their parents) tell them to blame.

Chris is an ok guy, he's young and reactive but he's not a bad dude. Just a little misinformed.

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

im in baltimore enough to be a resident. every night of the week at the gf's place 4-5pm- 6am the next morning and spend a lot of weekends there during the day. taking her dog on walks and talking to the other (actual) locals, they arent to displeased

this goes to show how little you all know about baltimore. there really isnt a mayor at the moment... the last one, Pugh, WAS in a huge scandal and stole a lot of money. she stepped down and everyone is just like oh it's gucci now that she stepped down - just more baltimore corruption. i think we're up to an average of 7 murders a night now

https://www.baltimoresun.com/politics/bs-md-pol-pugh-health-20190812-srdngsztrzcepdniflapuheyja-story.html

no one has heard from her in a few months. it was a weird coinsidence that when her scandal broke, she fell "ill" and couldnt leave her house

that was, until the FBI got a search warrant

the current mayor i think is Jack Young, former police commissioner iirc

please stop believing everything you read online... it's like that for a reason - they're all portrayed as great people until the shit hits the fan -_________________-

edit: you // you all,, never been to or lived in this city. just know whatcha read(edited)

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

Dont blame me, man

I voted for Marty Bass

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

Oh ok so you basically confirmed what We have said. Local politics matter so much. Yea Baltimore is fucked, no one is arguing that. But a single representative in the congress of the United States cannot fix a systemic corruption of city politics without support from the local governing parties.

valid point

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

Elijah Cummings colluded with `I take the fifth' Lois Lerner of the IRS to hinder conservative efforts to ` True the Vote' .

He said he had no contact with her and then it was found otherwise.

Chris and Jimmy said it right. Maybe not as crooked as Hillary,but WHO can beat that person at lying? LOL!

I believe there is an orange goblin in office that just told his 17000th(!) Documented lie whilst in office. which i must admit is pretty impressive in just 3 years.

The truth? Bas, you can't HANDLE the truth! LOL!

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

Bas, don’t.

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

All politicians lie, the orange one just does not care if anyone knows it. The truly frightening part of that is so few here seem to really care what is real or true, I mean the meat puppet got elected, clearly people in this country have quit expecting actual work form elected officials, we just want to be entertained, well, love him or hate him, he is entertaining...we are circling the drain as a society. There is an old Chinese curse, "may you live in interesting times" It has hit the US square in the face. Life is not "easy" it is about hard work, not constant entertainment.

Don’t you think calling trump orange is the same as calling Cummings black?

Re: R.I.P. Elijah Cummings

im not a trump hater (not a huge supporter) but 10fold over killery and most of the dem/lib field.

anywayyyyy even i dont agree with that. he's white... with an orange hinge bc of fake n baking. that's something to make fun of, he's essentially changed the tint of his skin slightly which is comical.

Cummings IS black. that's a fact

so,, no,, lol uhhh i dont think it's the same at all

If you are trying to insinuate that being called an Orange Goblin is anything akin to the terms historically used to describe black people in this country, you are wildly out of touch.

Trump is a scumbag, President or not. I don't think we have to wait until he's dead to talk about his failings when his failings impact the entire country.

Yeah the dickhead wants to ban efficiency lightbulbs that make him look orange. He just ain’t fucking worth it.
