I believe in reparations for us white early American descentdents that had to put up with the hardship fo establishising this great country. At least so far.

Boe,

Anyone of any color who was legally enslaved in the US can petition for reparations in person. Problem solved.

Captain Hate

Exhibit A on Forrest Gump Cantor doing his RINO best to screw everybody:

Of course we have our own Nonsense Caucus, also looking for ways to pass amnesty over the objections of a large fraction of Americans. Eric Cantor is claiming that the ENLIST bill -- which would let "DREAMers" enlist in the military -- is off the table, but it's only off the table while he has a potentially serious primary challenge from David Brat.

I'm tired of being lectured that keeping imbeciles like this roadkill wearing fool in power is the only thing that saves us from the barbarians. I hope Brat sends him packing to whatever shithole in Virginia he crawled out of.

Miss Marple

Ah, good evening Captain Hate, and may I echo your feelings about Cantor.

He seems to have a tin ear when it comes to speaking to the base, and therefore I have to assume he either despises us or is an incompetent leader.

Jane on Ipad

I predict an executive order.

narciso

Well l've often contended it's more about culture than class, the ethnic enclave, which
Amy Chua, the 'Tiger Mom' with an always provocative bent, put forward in her latest book, she lists eight sub groups with the common traits to succeed,

Captain Hate on the iPad

Miss Marple, as somebody who billed himself as a "conservative" in 2008 Cantor must have some sort of confusion about what that word really means. Or he's just another Repuke sellout.

maryrose

Obama can executive order all he wants. Immigrants who have done the process correctly or those holding green cards will not be pleased. I expect this type of over-reach on his part will only end badly for him and his leftist party.

MarkO on the road, closeted in a Marriott in Newark.

The Brown case was for injuctive relief. No damages. Irreparable injury.

The calculation of such damages, proof of individual injury and a legal basis on which to assess today's taxpayers would seem impossible.

So, Congress can ladle out more. But, if that were the end of it, perhaps it would be worth the effort.

I would want signed releases.

Centralcal on iPad

Cantor is a dull man with a dull mind. Doesn't belong in "leadership" position.

maryrose

I disagree about Cantor. I think he has done alright. remeber he stood up to Obama during debt crisis and made him mad.

Jack is Back

For space nuts: Morpheus Makes Free Flight at Kennedy.

Of course, this is all to hide the fact that Vlad has our balls in re Space fllight and the ISS. Nice try Obama regime via the NASA.

maryrose

I like Hensarling better however

Miss Marple

maryrose, Yes, but then why does he always talk about us like we are morons and pick the very issue which is bound to enrage the base?

Jane on Ipad

After Obama, there will never be an end to it.

Miss Marple

Regarding reparations, I am willing to fork over an ungodly amount to them if they will sign a document in which they promise to

1. Never collect public benefits except Social Security

and

2. SHUT UP.

Miss Marple

I am sorry, Dr. West (Sharpton, Jackson, Conyers, etc.) You signed this document and accepted reparations. By law you are prohibited from discussing racial issues on broadcast television and radio, unless you want to refund the money to the US Treasury.

Miss Marple

Idea for new cable channel:

Whiner TV. Put them all on that channel and see what type of audience they get.

Captain Hate on the iPad

We'll have to disagree on Cantor, maryrose. Yes I remember him exposing the JEF early on but he's been doing nothing but driving the amnesty bus and enraging the base with secret or rushed votes with more commiecrat support than Repub backing ever since then. Just another worthless non-JOMer from Virginia.

HEH.

daddy

Here's that 3,000 year old Assyrian statue moments before those moronic Syrian Islamists took out hammers and pounded the thing to rubble:

God Bless the West for having saved so much of human antiquity from such imbecilic barbarians, yet "When I became the NASA Administrator...he (President Obama) charged me with three things: One was that he wanted me to re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, that he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.

Science, math, and engineering. Got it.

Miss Marple

Gosh darn it daddy, I hate seeing willful destruction of artifacts due to absolute ignorance.

I wish someone would take a hammer to them!

They really are an impossible culture, the Jihadists.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Miss Marple, I was very grateful for that primer on the evils of Mike Pence you delivered in person. I am now firmly in the anybody-but-Pence camp. He strikes me as the type of snake that Rove likes to handle.

Miss Marple

captain Hate, apparently he pitched this crummy idea to the AEI, and was called on it, couldn't answer some questions too.

It is very easy to mouth platitudes in the conservative cause.

It is another to actually have conservative policies and to behave as an honorable man.

Plus: Ken doll hair!

I disagree a little with Steyn, we're not facing Callaghan in Obama, we're facing Tony Benn or Michael Foot,

I see the Salafi swarm somewhat the djinn of old, Tony Badran, back in the mid 00s, showed how cynically Bashir's Top men, allowed his own territory to set up networks that attacked
Coalition forces, some of those teamed up with tribesman in Anbar, this is the core of ISIS and the Nusra Front, old habits and skills die hard, and when the uprising began
along the Euphrates, the trails reversed back

rse,

I told my daughter I was really learning to appreciate the life style of the illustrator Tasha Tudor.

She lived on a New England farm without electricity, no TV or any other communications, raised goats, vegetables and flowers, and walked around in a long Victorian-type peasant dress. Her favorite period was the 1830's.

Once every couple of months she would send in illustrations to earn some money.

Christian Fired, CAIR given everything they want at Home Depot.

I know, pagar. What insane times.
Fired for supporting marriage? Fired for transgender remarks?

Think of all the ugly things said about Americans that went to tea party rallies. Nobody cared. Cro magnons, wanted to kick our teeth in. All the Christian bashing. Nobody is fired for THAT crap....& they shouldn't be.
It is that the double standard & selective outrage has just gotten too much. How can any of us sing, "the land of the free,..." anymore?

We aren't allowed to support marriage or we might be fired?? What is going on?

BeenThereDoneThat

I sent an email last week to Home Depot asking them to make a public statement concerning their new position regarding Sharia compliant policies. After their response(below)I'm left wondering if they're simply ignorant of CAIR's ulterior motives and history, or conforming out of fear. Or maybe they'll just do anything for business:

Good Afternoon _____,

It's not unusual for stores to tailor their communications efforts to
the local culture. A large number of our customers in Dearborn are Arab
Americans, so this was a well-intended effort by this one store to
promote good customer service, not Sharia Law. I appreciate your

I suspect it has much to do with the new Civil and Human Rights museum next door to the aquarium that HD stock built.

Beyond the minimum wage the Diva has been taught (not math, grammar, or Chemistry principles) but that any criticism of Islam indicates prejudice. The instruction is clearly designed to shut off facts should they meander along anyway.

daddy--just got an email asking for money to support Sarah Palin for Senate in Alaska.

Anonamom,

I would save your money. From where I sit I believe it is impossible for Sarah Palin ever to win another elective office in Alaska. She has been successfully painted as an embarrassment, and people would be loathe to vote for her simply to prevent the rest of the country from looking at Alaskan's as ignorant rubes.

Currently there are 3 Republican candidates in the race against Begich.

1) Dan Sullivan has the backing of the RNC and has the best numbers currently against Begich, which is why the out of state Begich money is running continual smear ads against Sullivan on TV and radio. I don't see any Begich ads running against any of the other 2 Repub candidates, therefore they view Sullivan as their prime opponent.

2) Mead Treadwell is the current Lt Governor and is somewhat of a local favorite (single dad raising 3 kids) and for a while he had slightly better polling numbers than Sullivan, but he stumbled a bit in a debate a few months back by accusing Begich of supporting a Carbon Tax (which he roundabout does) but since it wasn't as clear as Treadwell made it sound and has plausible deniability, the ADN and Begich and all the state media went after Treadwell and slightly diminished him, and that may have been why the RNC put their support behind Sullivan.

3) Third guy is Joe Miller, Sarah's pick last time, and from what I see his numbers are falling thru the floor in regards to Begich, or to either of the other 2 Repub candidates. I think Miller's numbers are about what Sarah would get if she ran again up here---down in the low teens at best.

In my view Sarah seriously running would be handing the seat over to Begich. I cannot believe that the outfit trying to get funds to draft Sarah is an in-state outfit. If it is, IMHO they are seriously deluded.

daddy

Ha! On catch-up, just after posting the above, I saw this from Narciso posted just below Anonamom's comment:

It's not a real thing, anonamon, she doesn't endorse the effort,

Thanks Narciso. I'm glad to hear that. She is an exceptionally bright woman in all respects and it is a gross shame on us up here that Alaska can't have her in elective office.

Can Americans of Irish descent get in on this reparation stuff, or is it still "Irish Need Not Apply"?

And how much of the un-Commonwealth can I get out of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for hanging my great great great great granny for WitchCraft?

Bori

On the topic in the thread, the new essay does blame Democrats, though not directly for some of the problems which is refreshing, at least. The acknowledgement that White Democrats are just as responsible.

Janet,

Dave just posted a NY Times article on my Facebook page that the whole point of the tea party was racism. The ACA was just a beard.

I keep learning the most bizarre things about myself that I never knew.

Off with the dogs.

I have a month off for vacation so I should lose some weight and get fairly fit all over again due to our daily treks, but I can also tell that with so much daylight up here now I won't be seeing any stars above until I go back to work and take another trip late next month.

You're nuts. Just think of the compound interest. Don't forget your claims on Iraq and Italy as well.

On the same basis, I'd invite every black who feels deserving of reparation to file their claims in Africa. The original African slave catchers and sellers lived there, not here.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

I thought we already did reparations. Is this gonna be for the people too lazy to fill out Pigford forms that say some long-ago relative thought about farming? or was near some dirt at some point? Wasn't Pigford just "reparations"?

"Hyphenated as the Founders intended."

Who can doubt that the Founders had a clear intent as to whether the hyphen should be used? Who can doubt the importance of the question, not only to the Founders but to our very selves?

I thought Pigford covered reparations...silly me.

Rick B

jimmyk,

The tortious act predates the hallucination known as shariah and the interest rate applicable at the time of the commission of the act should apply. The only matter left to determine is whether agricultural or commercial rates should be used as there was no maritime aspect involved. I believe commercial rates should apply due to the victims having been primarily engaged in construction and the manufacture of bricks. Let's just agree to 12% and run the spread sheets.

Danube on iPad

The merits of the Founders' intent regarding hyphenization remains unaddressed, as of course it will continue to be.

Perhaps some point was to be made in the original post, but it is certain that we will never know what that point was. We do know that there are loons who communicate with the Founders via Ouija board concerning every manner of arcane issue, but the Ouija Mystic can never share the basis of his insight with the disciples.

Maria Cantwell (Dimwit-Washington), leading the effort to drum up other dumbasses in the Senate to hector Dan Snyder, has a high school in her state, 90% Aboriginal American, with the nickname "Redskins" which has adamantly refused to change the name which they regard as a point of pride. Excellent knowledge of constituents imo.

At the very least I want equal rights. If atheists can be offended by crosses or if someone is offended by seeing a Bible or a “One nation under God, indivisible” pin...
then I'm offended by seeing a Muslim head scarf. I'm offended by seeing a totem pole or a ying/yang symbol. I'm offended by the term 'mother nature'.

I think reparations are a great idea! However, the Native Americans have to be first in line and are due a check at least of factor of ten greater than any slave descendent. And as a 1/16th, or maybe a 1/32nd, Comanche, I want my check now!

I absolutely believe blacks are owed reparations.

Every black kid who had to grow up in a home broken by the left wing welfare plantation or in a neighborhood full of left wing promoted drugs and left wing tolerated crime and violence, living in left wing created tenements deserves some smug white lefty's house, job, car and wife.

Then the lefty can go live in the utopia he loves to build for others far, far out of his sight and mind.
