Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee called on Democrats to mobilize together and advocate for passage of a bill to form a commission on slave reparations, calling it a "bold effort that people want to not do." "You must as a community ensure that the Congress moves on H.R. 40 and that is call your members of Congress to ensure they are co-sponsors," she said on Friday during a virtual town hall on "Systemic Racism Beyond Policing." "We're the provocative legislation that people want to think twice about being on because it clearly says that something must be done about the governmental action that was done to enslave Africans

For those who still have a grasp of history, "reparations" following WW I became, in essence, the reason for WW II. After "The Great War" the Allied Powers imposed severe economic penalties on Germany for starting the war. The severity of this so irritated the German population to the point that they found favor in the words of Adolph Hitler who convinced them that this penalty needed to be corrected,and Germany had a score to settle. They allowed him to assume leadership, and, well--you know the thing!

While we're talking about horrible things done by one group to another, why don't blacks owe reparations to Native Americans? After the Recent Unpleasantness black soldiers went out west in order to continue their military careers. The Buffalo Soldiers (blacks whose hair reminded the Native Americans of the hair on a Buffalo's hump) fought and killed many enemy in the Indian Wars. They enforced appropriation of land and the enslavement of the Native Americans into the Reservation System. BTW that's where Hitler got the idea for Concentration Camps. If anyone owes reparations then the blacks owe a great deal to the Native Americans.

I'm really tired with this never ending (recurring) call for reparations. The principle of "Statute of Limitations" needs to apply. Since Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" trillions of dollars have been spent to benefit African-Americans, including decades of "affirmative action." Since when in the United States is any individual or any government responsible for actions that occurred in the far distant past? No one is responsible for any actions of his or her great-great-great ancestors, especially having any such wrongs paid for by taxes. Reparations are simply illogical attempts to grab huge sums of money.

We don't want to do it because stupid people like Sheila and Maxine already had their reparations. Where else can a moron wear a dress and speak in front of Congress? Where else can somebody call himself Reverend, collect millions of dollars for spewing vile hate speech and avoid paying taxes on it? Living in America is the best thing that ever happened to them.

Reparations to black people need to be payed by the DNC who have held the whole race in economic slavery for decades. They started the KKK, they fought the Civil Rights Act, they tried to stop them from voting. The rest of us owe them nothing.

Anyone from Texas, particularly Houston, knows what a joke She-Jack is. Before Obamacare passed I lived in her district. I attempted to reach her 37 times, via her website, phone, and actually knocking on the door of two of her five offices to no avail. But I am not Black. I attended a townhall meeting re: Obamacare where she arrived 25 minutes late, paraded down the center aisle of a community center behind the American flag, and proceeded to lie her (rather wide) six off. She planted a woman who pretended to be a physician to praise O-care. Turns out she was a graduate student in political science and an Obama delegate, not a medical doctor (or even a PhD). This woman represents everything that is wrong with politics. And if you get between her and a camera--in the words of Inigo Montoya--"Prepare to die."

To those of the colored persuasion that think that I or anyone else today owes them reparations, I would say this: Those of us alive today did not enslave your ancestors, and many of us (myself included) did not have ancestors that were slave owners. If you think we owe you reparations, apparently you do not feel better off than if the slave traders would have left you in Africa. Therefore, we will not pay you one red cent, but we will pay for a one way ticket to the jungle,

all B.S. Hundreds of thousands of white lives lost to free slaves under Lincoln. We've had quota systems in place to ensure hiring of blacks, they have their own colleges, their own TV and radio stations 70% of the NBA and the NFL are black and they are doctors, lawyers, dentists, news casters, actors and actresses, they have their own movies and broadway shows and they are members of congress. We even elected a black president. So what actually is the problem. I'll tell ya, there is not problem. They have been paid back and many have been supported by our tax dollars for generations. You see, that debt has been paid. There is no more. End it. Got it.

Reparations? For what? For whom? The American taxpayer? Hundreds of federal and state programs to help minorities. Trillions of dollars spent funding those programs, and a large portion of the black population in the inner cities still can't get their dung together and become productive citizens of this country. The failure to make one's life better falls squarely on the black inner city culture. A culture that from all appearances doesn't care about getting an education, or even making an attempt at trying to assimilate into what is considered a normal American life style. Their entire lives appear to be spent doing just the opposite of doing things that would make their lives better for them and their children. Easier to blame racism and whitey for their lot in life, then take advantage of the opportunities available to them to improve their lives. To do that, would take too much work.

What do you think Welfare has been Sheila? Or all the minority targeted programs that apparently blacks aren't using to get ahead in the world. Like AA, scholarships, admittance quotas and so on. Democrat problem for the DNC would be, these folks in large part can't even figure out who the baby daddy is, let alone ancestors who came from Africa. Especially the blacks who live in the North and whose ancestors were not slaves. The inner city is a huge festering mess, thanks to people like this woman and the hustlers Sharpton and Jackson. Time to clean up your own messes like adults and stop expecting the rest of us to do it for you.

What about reparations for married women? They could not own anything once they were married. The husband had control of all bank accounts and property. She couldn't vote until an Amendment was passed in the early 1900's. It wasn't until the 1960's that she could have her own bank account and credit cars. Now that is real oppression.

The Chinese government’s expansive claims to own most of the South China Sea are illegal under international law, the Trump administration said Monday as it ramped up U.S. efforts to undermine Beijing’s increasingly militarized activities in the strategic waterway. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington is committed to standing beside allies across Asia to counter China, which has triggered regional tensions for more than a decade with assertions of sovereignty over most of the resource-rich South China Sea. “We are making clear: Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them,” Mr. Pompeo said

I looked it up and was reminded that it was part of her 2008 primary campaign against Barack Obama. (Snip for video) On Saturday, the White House released an ad on Twitter–but I’m not sure it is an official ad, since it doesn’t carry the “I’m Donald Trump…” at the end–that begins by copying the introduction to Hillary’s ad, and then takes on Joe Biden’s senescence point-blank:

Last month, President Trump took action to defend US servicemen and women from an illegitimate investigation by the International Criminal Court into their conduct in Afghanistan. The ICC’s efforts are unfounded and mock justice. First and foremost, the United States did not ratify the 1998 Rome Statute that founded the ICC. Successive administrations have stood by that decision and, as a result, American citizens are not subject to ICC jurisdiction.

Back on April 7th, Wisconsin held the first in-person primary election since the pandemic outbreak began. Well, it was at least partially “in-person” but the state attempted at the last minute to turn it into some sort of hybrid, combining a smaller number of in-person polling places with the option to request mail-in ballots. And the results were predictably chaotic. There was confusion regarding where and how to vote and the massive increase in mail-in voting meant the results were delayed far longer than normal. In short, it was a mess.

"The risk of children for a significant illness is far less from the seasonal flu. This is totally antithetical to the data."

Washington was sent into vapors of shock and disgust with news of the commutation of Roger Stone. Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin declared it to be “the most corrupt and cronyistic act in all of recent history.” Despite my disagreement with the commutation, that claim is almost quaint. The sordid history of pardons makes it look positively chaste in comparison. Many presidents have found the power of pardons to be an irresistible temptation when it involves family, friends, and political allies. I have maintained that Stone deserved another trial but not a pardon. As Attorney General William Barr has said, this was a “righteous prosecution” and Stone was correctly convicted

The suspects are members of “the Crashout Gang.” Guns blazing, they were chasing people believed to be members of a rival gang. A stray bullet killed young McNeal,

Ashburn, Va.—Washington’s NFL team will get rid of the name ‘Redskins’ on Monday, according to multiple reports. It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises. USA Today, ESPN, The Washington Post, Washington Times and Sports Business Journal reported Sunday night that owner Dan Snyder is set to “retire” the name. Yahoo, on Saturday, reported a name change was imminent. The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3 that the NFL supported. That came in the aftermath of prominent sponsors FedEx, Nike, PepsiCo and Bank of America asking the team to change the name.

As for baseball, let’s be honest. It’s boring to watch and it’s even boring to play. Ordinary people who aren’t being paid to play baseball cannot endure it except by playing it co-ed with beer, which makes practically anything endurable including watching paint dry. About 90% of baseball consists of the players standing around while touching their privates whenever the TV camera is pointed at them or sitting around the dugout pretending to watch the other team while touching their privates. They often spit. Why do people pay to see millionaires lolling about in a park and hiding in a little concrete bomb shelter while spitting and touching their privates?

During the 1930s and 1940s, there were many genuine communists, as well as fellow travelers, working in Hollywood. Once the Cold War began, Hollywood turned against those people and instituted its blacklist, which made it impossible for anyone with communist sympathies to work openly in Hollywood. Of late, the further left you lean in Hollywood, the more you are to be applauded. That’s why it’s incredibly ironic to realize that Hollywood is once again blacklisting people – only this time, blacklisting means that the only people listed for employment have to be black.

The Left’s “Boycott Goya” campaign to bully and silence Goya Food CEO Robert Unanue for praising President Trump has backfired in epic fashion after scores of Trump supporters launched their own counter-boycott called “Goya Buy-cott.” The “Buy-cott” campaign inspired countless Trump supporters to go to their local stores and buy up Goya olives, seasonings, beans, and frozen foods like it’s Christmas. In fact, Goya couldn’t have asked for better marketing if it had paid millions of dollars in prime-time TV and newspaper ads. President Trump kicked things off by tweeting, “I love Goya Foods!” (Tweet)
