A member of the California Reparations Task Force vowed the committee’s "recommendations will be breathtaking." Lisa Holder, a task force member and president of the far-left Equal Justice Society, published an opinion piece advocating for the reparations committee and writing that Californians "must be prepared for remedies on a scale approaching the Great Society programs of Medicare and Medicaid." "Reparations is a paradigm for understanding harm and repair as it relates to people who suffered a human rights injustice because of government action," Holder wrote. "Harm and repair are the two sides of the spectrum." She added that reparations will

Marxists all. Reparations are paid annually as part of the 1960's War on Poverty and so far at $25 Trillion (adjusted). Another pay-out Great Society Program will fail to "repair" slavery and Jim Crow. That pay-off poverty program was designed to make Democrats out of all blacks for "a hundred years"--Johnson.

All those who suffered harm and human rights injustice have been dead for over 100 years. Back in time, slavery was a legal worldwide business. All through the Bible slaves were as common as anything. It was the generally accepted practice of the day. Do you think Egypt will pay preparation to the slaves the Egyptians owned under all of the Pharaohs? All of the people of Israel were slaves to Egypt. Pay them reparations. That is not going to happen.

I have about 2% African ancestry. Now, where do I send my bonafides? It sure will help with my car payment and rent bills. Two percent doesn't seem like much, you say. It was good enough for apartheid, so it should qualify me for reparation payments. I demand my rights.

Our family has a relative who died in the battlefield fighting for freedom for the slaves. Do we get repetitions for the young man who was killed? He never came home. The slaves were freed! Who got the better deal? I’m with Clint Eastwood. You people never picked cotton, and I never owned slaves!

Look around us, ever heard of Cloward and Priven? Their political philosophy is what you are seeing being activated in real time. The idea is to overload the system, tear it down and rebuild it in the social utopia that they imagine will magically appear. What happens is that a few rich and power men decide that they are going to run things with an iron fist. The result millions dead with chaos and misery all around. This is your democrat party on steroids. I no longer consider them fellow Americans because my fellow Americans would never do these things to their beloved country. These are people driven by a force so evil that it can only come from the pits of Hades.

Recommendations can be breathtaking. However, it is the funding mechanism that has to be realistic. I bet that part is not included in the recommendation because to lefties, other peoples' money is a bottomless pit.

Comparing past slavery from the 1800's with the Japanese internment is not even a close comparison. The slaves in the US were brought here by European and African slave traders. They got their slaves to sell from fellow Africans who had slaves themselves (many still do). The Japanese were rounded up by the US government. Their property and businesses were confiscated and they were placed in internment camps because they might not have been loyal to the US. Their civil rights were violated because of fear. This was a recent thing. Not 150 years ago. People alive today were victims of this. You can actually identify the living victims and their direct descendants because there are government records of it. It is in no way like the Black "I WANT REPARATIONS" pool of people just because of my skin color. Your melanin level should not qualify you for anything. My lack of melanin should not require me to pay you for anything. Reparations will not solve anything. They will cause the racial divide to open even further and racial relations will get wy worse very fast once the first reparations check is sent out.

Colorado town accused of 'abuse of power'

The Louisville, Colorado City Council is facing harsh criticism after its recent proposal to ban the construction of new gas stations and auto service stations. Though council members say the ban is an effort to combat climate change, one local Republican spokesperson called it an abuse of power. If enacted, the ban would leave the 21,000 residents of Louisville with only six gas stations. A seventh would be permitted under the ordinance only if it were part of a large retail center. Charlie Danaher, the Republican spokesperson in Boulder County, Colorado, said on "Fox & Friends First" Thursday that the

A US contractor was killed on Thursday in Syria after a suspected Iranian-affiliated drone struck a facility housing US personnel in northeast Syria, the Pentagon said in a statement Thursday. Five US service members and an additional US contractor were wounded in the strike. “The intelligence community assess the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to be of Iranian origin,” according to the statement. In response, President Joe Biden authorized a precision airstrike “in eastern Syria against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC),” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said in the statement.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota House was moving Thursday toward strengthening the state's protections for children and their families who come for gender-affirming care by making Minnesota a “trans refuge state,” bucking a national backlash against transgender rights. Democratic Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order two weeks ago to protect the rights of people from Minnesota and other states to receive gender-affirming health care in the state. The bill on which the House was slated to begin debate Thursday night covers much of the same ground, but supporters said a statute would provide stronger, more permanent protections. Passage

Oil companies have come under increasing legal scrutiny and face allegations of defrauding investors, racketeering, and a wave of other lawsuits. But a new paper argues there’s another way to hold big oil accountable for climate damage: trying companies for homicide. The striking and seemingly radical legal theory is laid out in a paper accepted for publication in the Harvard Environmental Law Review. In it, the authors argue fossil fuel companies “have not simply been lying to the public, they have been killing members of the public at an accelerating rate, and prosecutors should bring that crime to the public’s attention”.
