Oh? Guess what? You’re wrong. See –ya learn something new everyday. It’s a good thing!

quote:
And elaborate on (in a histrionics-less manner) why you've described reparations as "nefarious" when British Slaveowning subjects were compensated for the loss of slaves when Britain abolished slavery in 1833?


Duhhhhh???? And your point is? That was more than was 175 years ago! What does that have to do with 2009? Besides, when that happened, the slaves and slave owners were still alive. What slave or slave owner do you know personally??? Besides, the slaves that they lost were tangible losses that could be accounted for.Unlike your abstract apocryphal notion of reparations, black slaves were like commodities and chattel that had established value.

quote:
Slaveholders were compensated for their legally imposed loss of value. "The British government raised £20 million to…… possessions. There is a distinct disadvantage. All but the willfully blind can see this.


This has no relevant meaning to anything. Next……

quote:
Not to mention, Japanese-Americans were compensated for the loss of their freedom and livelihoods when they were forced into American internment camps during WWII...


Uhhhhh…Yeah! That’s because many of the internment victims were still alive and they could produce documented records of confiscated property, finances, business, loss of jobs and wages. Now, if you can find some former black slaves and their slave children who were alive at the time of their enslavement –by all means, pay them! Confused and misguided Negroes in 2009 cannot produce such. Next…..

quote:
Germany, and other european governments were forced to pay for confiscating valuables from Jewish citizens...


And once again –IT WAS A MATTER OF DOCUMENTED PUBLIC RECORD OF WHAT HAD BEEN TAKEN FROM THEM! AND MANY OF THE JEWS AND THEIR CHLDREN WHO SURVIVED WERE STILL ALIVE WHEN THEY WERE COMPENSATED!! What do you not understand…??

quote:
American taxpayers are paying billions for the rebuilding of schools and communities in Iraq despite the fact that I have never bombed a school nor killed an Iraqi...


So what?! Get over it! That statement makes no sense nor is it relevent to this spurious issue of reparations. STAY FOCUSED…..PLEASE! The federal government spends my tax dollars on projects and issues that I do not agree with either. Don’t like it? Write your congressional representative or start your own organization for tax reform. E’nuff said……
