Re: Why Should We Just "Get Over It"?

The Case Against Reparations Sometimes a bad idea is so pregnant with mischief that it compels our attention. One such idea is now propelling a movement to secure reparations for American slavery. The seeming simplicity of this plea is truly seductive. In skeletal form the argument looks like this: Once upon a time some white people enslaved some black people; the institution of American slavery robbed "the black community" of its inheritance; the long years of servitude produced enduring...

Frenchy - I know the problems and am attempting to do my best to solve them in this area. Greedy national chains would lose a lot of money (some might even close) if they could not process EIC returns, which is where most of their money comes from. Again, mailing in the returns would deny the predators the opportunity to rob the poor. Perhaps getting some money is more beneficial than getting nothing, but after of the fees, many people lose upwards of $700.00. IMHO, that is far too much. No...

I don't know about "Rachael Welsh", but I know about Raquel Welch having a love scene with Jim Brown. It was in a Western movie called "100 Rifles." Of course, they killed her character at the end because Jim Brown had the lead role. Secondly, Raquel is also a Latina. Now if that would've been Farrah Fawcett, Jim Brown's character would've killed instead.

This was just too funny, reminded me of the common smart-azzedness we have at work. Qantas Airlines: After every flight, pilots complete a gripe sheet which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction. The pilot completes and then the mechanics read and correct the problem. They then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.
