Reparations: The grift that keeps on giving

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 4/11/2023 9:44:29 AM

Reparations — the political gift (or grift, if you prefer) that keeps on giving — is, yet again, back in the news, and of course the looniest ideas are coming out of California, that bastion of slavery we all know from our American history classes. Huge numbers are being tossed around by the rabid left and the race-baiters (redundant, I know). If only we can give enough money, the left moans, then all will be fixed, all will be healed, and we can live in racial harmony. Think of the absurdity and mental gymnastics of reparations. Who gets them? Who gives them?

This week Real Body Cams posted the videos from a Target store (October 22, 2022) that showed a woman with $1,000 worth of groceries trying to take them without paying for them, believing herself to be owed reparations by Target, or by whoever would pay. She got rather loud and pushy--it was her "Rosa Parks moment"--and the police were summoned. Then, still in the bulldozer mode, she pushed a cop through the doorway into the Target back room and got decked with a punch to her face. This was not the way it was supposed to turn out. She didn't get her reparations or the groceries she didn't pay for, but she did wind up spending two nights in County jail and being fined $500. She'll probably try it again at Wal-Mart, having worn out her welcome at Target.

After all the reparations have been spent, then what? Do you think there will be satisfaction? Are you sane? The answers to these questions are: more reparations, no, yes.

It's a scam. There are NO people alive who were slaves. There are no people alive who owned slaves. That law ended 155 years ago. It is OVER, and no amount of screetching about "harm" which occurred 150 years AFTER slavery ended is legitimate. It's a SCAM, a fraud, a lie, and has zero legitimacy. People who were never slaves are owed NOTHING.

There is no way the country could afford reparations for every single person who believes they deserve them. So how about a free monthly lottery where the entry is controlled by your genetic proof of minority status? Say 100 million or a billion dollars a month.

Re #5, sure we could afford it. Give every black person who can prove slave relatives 35 cents and be done with it. Yes, that's massively overpaying, but we could afford that.

There is no amount of money no lowering of standards, no promotion, no mansion that will satisfy blacks. And then when we pay this generation off and they are still not satisfied, who will pay off the next generation when they cry for reparations. Why is this generation entitled anyway. How about the previous generation or the one before that ,or the one after. The whole idea is coming from a pack of greedy low lifes. Blacks who have become successful by their own hard work are not the ones screaming for this.This is coming from those looking for a free ride , and politicians looking to get and keep their cushy Gubmint largesse.

Reparations: One way airfare to the country which agrees to take you, using a one time passport which expires upon your arrival. No right of return. No visa will be granted. You and all your family wishing to participate. Your loot will be shipped by sea to the address you specify. You will NEVER be happy or satisfied in this country so go somewhere you will be happy, with our blessing, at our expense...please

Think about it, how much more should be done when so much has already been done. Time to end this talk about reparations. Think about it, the 2008 market crash was caused by democrats who controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They forced banks to provide loans to people who were not qualified, people who they knew, could not pay the loans back. It destroyed the country, destroyed the economy. All because of a form of reparations created by the idiot democrats who are again proposing some idiotic ideas to get votes. Total insanity.

The greatest attempt at reparation payments in history was the Versailles Peace Treaty at the end of WWI. It required the Axis Powers to pay the Allied Powers about $500 billion for war damages. Other than Germany, none of the other Axis Powers paid anything. Germany only ever paid about $21 billion before the Great Depression hit much of Europe. The German Weimar Republic had to buy the Reparation bonds by printing Marks and converting them to gold. This created a massive inflation that destroyed the German economy well before the Depression hit. The suffering this caused was exploited by the National Socialists who took power in the early '30s with Hitler as their populist demagogue leader. Conclusion: Reparations are not a good idea.

As has been posted before - all of the slave holders were democrats. The Republican Party was founded in part specifically to end slavery and the party’s first elected president was Lincoln. So send the tab for every penny of reparations paid anywhere in the US to the DNC and every registered democrat voter in the country. Then sit back and watch all those blue states turn red.

Peer-Reviewed Study: 'The Higher the Number

The pre-print for this study, prior to the peer review process, came out late last year. It showed, in a nutshell, that more COVID-19 shots correlated to a greater risk of contracting COVID-19. But the COVIDians predictably, in eternal denial as is their nature, pounced on the fact that the initial paper was a pre-print. They dismissed it for not being peer-reviewed, which is often described as the “gold standard” stamp of approval by The Science™. Mind you, the corporate state media expresses no such criticism of pre-print studies that say what they want them to say about the alleged efficacy of masking, the wonders of Pfizer’s mRNA injections, etc.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams gave a completely unexpected Memorial Day speech denouncing socialism and Communism and bemoaning the lack of patriotism from the nation’s young. Referencing Thomas Jefferson (a mistake, according to the radical left), Adams spoke of the famous “Tree of Liberty.” “You water the tree of freedom with your blood,” Adams said. “We sit under the shade of that tree of freedom protected from the hot rays of socialism and communism and destruction that’s playing out across the globe.” Adams referred to himself as a “thirty-eight percenter,” recalling a poll from last year that showed just 38% of Americans were “extremely proud” of the United States.

Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann called for President Joe Biden on Tuesday to “kick Joe Manchin’s ass” for getting approval of a natural gas pipeline for West Virginia included in the debt ceiling agreement. Manchin worked with Speaker Kevin McCarthy to include the approval of the Mountain Valley Pipeline into the agreement. The pipeline would carry shale gas from West Virginia to the east coast. The pipeline has been embattled in the courts. In a statement, Manchin thanked McCarthy. “I am pleased Speaker McCarthy and his leadership team see the tremendous value in completing the MVP to increase domestic energy production and drive down costs across America and especially in West Virginia.

It’s more obvious by the day that Leftists have a taste for authoritarianism, but Hanoi Jane Fonda makes it even more obvious than others do. Fresh from calling for the murder of pro-lifers, Jane has now blamed the mythical crisis of climate change on the Left’s all-purpose bogeymen, white males. And what does the star of Barbarella think ought to be done with these villains? Why, they must be imprisoned, of course. Then, while the world’s white guys are rattling their tin cups against the bars, women and “people of color” can pool their efforts and save the world. Just like in the movies.

Dying Social Justice™ outlet Vice, apparently pathologically incapable of reform, is hastening its self-destruction by introducing a cringe segment called “Queer Sports.” The panel for this episode included a frumpy, non-binary Huffington Post columnist called Lyndsey D’Arcangelo (they/them). By visual clues alone, not to mention her own admission, this person doesn’t play sports — but whatever because none of this is about sports anyway; it’s just a vehicle to inject more LGBTQ+++™ propaganda into popular culture by hijacking sports. The non-binary non-athlete’s main gripe is that “pride” events hosted by nearly every major professional sports franchise are too “performative,” which is ironic given that performative

Is There a Polite Way to Handle the Pronoun Madness? 33 replies
Posted by Hazymac 5/28/2023 4:06:24 PM Post Reply
One of the most maddening things about modern culture is the whole issue of pronouns. At the very least, it’s annoying that some people trumpet their pronouns, choosing to base their identity on how people address them when talking about them behind their backs. But it’s even worse the way some people freak out over people using the wrong pronouns as if other people have nothing better to do than keep up with what everybody’s pronouns are at any given moment. Prounoun obsession is the ultimate form of narcissism; it’s entirely self-focused to think that everyone should bend to the whim of what you want to call yourself.

Vice President Kamala Harris took time off from avoiding her duties as border czar to give a speech to the graduating class at West Point Military Academy on Saturday. Amidst compliments to the military and an acknowledgment of the threat of China, Kamala also scare-mongered about the fake “climate crisis” and touted artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR). You can always count on Kamala to have her priorities straight. Kamala’s speech was overall patriotic and pro-military — she even talked about the oath U.S. officers take to the Constitution. It rings hollow, however, from a Vice President whose administration is responsible for the horrendously catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal,

But after the same group of looters attacked the store for the fourth or fifth time, making off with thousands of dollars in merchandise, she called 911. Assistant Manager Jennifer Ferguson described the scene. “All of a sudden we see some gentlemen run into the store in masks and hoodies,” Ferguson said, “They swiped until they couldn’t hold any more product and ran out the door.” But a week later, Rogers was fired. She had apparently run afoul of a company policy that had a “zero tolerance” for calling 911. Certainly one can

Hundreds of Trump’s voters were jailed over a protest at the Capitol over the counting of the votes and we have not heard his protest. Indeed, Bush has condemned these protesting patriots as threats to America.
