Re: What About The Debt Blacks Owe To America?

oddmodd ·
David Horowitz's is an idiot and anyone who adopts this ideology is an idiot. Black people of African decent are owe more money and restitution that America can afford. Every group from the Jews to Native Americans received some form of reparations for the devastating treament inflicted upon them by their attackers. African-Americans have never received a dime and up until the 1994 public apology by the Clinton Administration there has never a verbal condemnation on the part of the American...

The Jobs Bank has its origins in the tough times Detroit faced in the late 1970s and early 1980s. A spike in oil prices, a harsh recession and the first major assault from fuel-efficient Japanese cars hammered the Big Three and cost tens of thousands of union jobs. The UAW agreed to its first concessionary contracts in 1982 with the Big Three, which then made three out of every four vehicles sold in America. Battling the new competition, GM developed a plan to spend $24 billion improving...

The 1960's I don't think is early 20th century or for that matter i9th century. And I thought I made it perfectly clear that I don't support either Political Party Democratic Or Republican.

Re: Let's do some detective work - Walter Williams

James Wesley Chester ·
I think Walter Williams has found "a place to stand" in his profession. Found a/his niche, if you will. To achieve and sustain status, one must find a position to advance, and defend. It must also be somewhat unique. Walter Williams' niche is that of Constitutional Pragmatist. That's bad. Nor is it intended to be derogatory. It's just opinion. Every commentator has his/her bag. I think he is thorough. I often disagree. I particularly don't like his presentation of his identity to America.
