Reparations Could Prevent the Next Ferguson
Time Magazine, by Belinda Cooper

Original Article

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

Electing Obama was supposed to solve these problems. Every time we give disgruntled people what they say they want, they end up angrier.

Despicable. Where are the people who have been rounded up and whose belongings were confiscated? Who are the guilty parties who ordered this evil and did the confiscating? If you can´t answer, reparations are not a solution.

Reparations. ... 1)fancy word describing unconstitutional transfer payments from the earnings of all of our children to selected descendants of a specific race, accomplishing nothing more than increasing embitterment. 2) some random thought that fills a vacuum, often passing for reason among others with vacuous thoughts.

´´Reparations ,´´ is what the radical destroyers of private property should pay to those whom they harmed and for the thefts of private property as well as the burning of businesses! It is the destroyer/crooks who chose to break the law when they committed these crimes so it is they themselves who should pay for ALL damages which they caused, NOT innocent business owners and law abiding taxpayers!

A thief is a, ´´thief!´´ ...´Book ´em Dano!´

Demon-RATs have been giving blacks free stuff for decades now. Free housing, free food, free phones, etc, etc.

All it has done is to have destroyed any work ethic many of them may have had a few generations ago. And they don´t appreciate anything that they have, since they didn´t have to work for it.

It has produced multiple generations of welfare slaves who think they are owed more and more free stuff, and will be as violent as they want to be to get it.

If we give the reparations for things that happened to ancestors that died 100 years ago, they will just waste it and then want more.

It won´t prevent more violence. It will simple cause far more violence.

Okay hon, let´s make it all better with this idea. If any living American citizen can prove that at any point in their lifetime they were forced into slave labor, we will reimburse them the going wage rate during the time they worked. Even better, we´ll arrange to pay interest on the amount due through to the day they collect.

There will be, of course, deductions from any free money they may have collected since their enslavement. You know, EBT, welfare, free phones, free medical care, etc. I know it´s almost certainly a racist suggestion but they are going to be prepared to show proper identification when applying.

Admittedly, we´re going to need some deep thinkers to figure out just which living citizens were the slave holders so we can take the money from them. My predominately European family didn´t immigrate to America until well after slavery ended. Although we´ve lived in the South for several generations, we never profited from owning slaves. Surely you wouldn´t think it fair for us to pay?

Spending over $7 trillion on the "war on poverty" seems like plenty of reparation to me. Where is the return on that investment????? 4 generations of slumdwellers having 5 baby chirrens by the time the babymama is 20, usually by different 5 different babydaddy....each kid brings in a tidy sum in welfare payments ( excuse me: pay-mints) which the babymama splits up w each of her babydaddy...but the babydaddy all got other babymama and a percentage of $$ coming in to him from each babymama with whom he has babychirrens. Not to mention the subsidized housing AND the Food Stamps and free Head Start for the babychirrens and and andandand....

Completely absurd. I´ve never owned a slave and have no interest in doing so. Yet, I have been forced to pay reparations out of every paycheck since my very first one. When does it end? Does every generation get reparations into perpetuity? When people finally have had enough, will we be subjected to the kind of rioting that would happen if the EBT cards were taken away?
Get off your lazy wefare butts and learn at least basic reading, writing and diction. (Hint: Mother is not half a word). You get free school at my expense. Make use of it. Stop having illegitimate babies! Thats a guarantee of poverty. Do those things, then you can start working toward the American dream. Thats how its done.
Reparations. Good grief.

What is she----an infant? Honey, the Great Society and War on Poverty programs were nothing short of reparations. This current new program of Obama´s that singles out young black males for services is a form of reparations.

And what do we have for such expenditures? More poverty, most black homes without a working male, and a whole subculture that doesn´t consider marriage and self support necessary or even desirable.

It is silly to think that giving money to blacks outright is going to solve anything.

The Blacks already have reparations in the form of FREE housings, free phones, Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, and every other program that nets each individual a pay grade of over $60,000 a year which gives all of them time to protest, loot, and play that fun knockout game.

I actually knew a woman who survived the German concentration camps, but lost her entire family there. She came to this country as a refugee, and worked hard to build a new life. She worked at a job until she was too sick to work, in her late 60s.

She received a very small check each month from the German government in recompense for her years of forced labor. It wasn´t anywhere near what a family gets in welfare in this country.

Those welfare, medicaid, food stamp payments, etc., didn´t help avoid Ferguson. Why would more money thrown at the problem help?

I thought it was "paid" in the Civil War -
54,000 lives lost at Gettysburg -
somewhere between 620,000 and 750,000 lives of soldiers lost during the entire war -
and of course, so many who were grievously injured -
they all poured their blood into the ground at all those battlefields -
and perhaps we who live in freedom owe reparations to the families of those whose loved ones gave up their lives in World Wars I & II as well as those who engaged the enemy on the battlefield in the War on Terror.

How do you decide if the black people you want to give money are the descendants of slaves or slave holders since over 10000 black families owned slaves? Second, which white people here are descendants of slave owners or slave traders, the latter have been residents of the noble northeast or Europe? I don´t think that the progeny of white people who had nothing to do with slavery should have to pay nor do I think that the progeny of black slaveholder/traders should get a pass. Also, how many blacks here are the descendants of people who arrived after slavery was outlawed? Like our president who plays that slavery card that has ting to do with him.

In Nazi Germany it was known exactly who suffered and benefitted from the Holocaust.

If you really want to "prevent the next Ferguson" the solution is simple...announce that henceforth the police will only use live ammunition. No more rubber bullets and teargas, if you are visible at the scene of a riot or looting, you will be shot and you will suffer grievous or fatal injuries. If you do not want to die, you will avoid locations which might erupt into a crime scene. No lawsuits will be permitted against any police action occurring at a scene where rioting or looting has happened.

Then do it! It may take an incident or two or three, but eventually people will realize that obeying the law is the only safe course of action.

There are no slaves still alive as slavery was officially ended over 150 years ago.

The liberal Democrats have already instituted their reparations program, it was called the Great Society, and to date, other than helping to destroy black nuclear families, generally has been ineffective.

Tiny Qatar plays outsize

WASHINGTON — Just miles (kilometers) from where former Guantanamo Bay terror suspects have resettled, American warplanes take off from Qatar´s al-Udeid air base in the global war on extremism. The contrast in images illustrates why tiny but rich Qatar is an intriguing player in what President Barack Obama says will be a long battle to stop and eventually destroy the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. Qatar plays an outsize role as a U.S. military partner. It gained public praise from Obama for brokering the controversial deal that freed Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from Taliban captivity in May in

Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants. Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines. The

When it comes to politics, Costco Wholesale has a well-deserved reputation as a Democratic-leaning corporation. Company co-founders Jim Sinegal and Jeffrey Brotman have hosted President Obama at fundraisers in their lakefront mansions. Costco executives have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and causes over the past decade. But in the key battle for control of the state Senate this year, top Costco brass — miffed at Democrats over a liquor-fee dispute — have essentially switched sides, backing the Republican Party’s efforts to maintain and expand its majority coalition. Employees and executives of the Issaquah-based retailer have donated

Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Michelle Nunn in a new independent survey of the Georgia Senate race, the second this week to give him the edge. Perdue takes 45 percent to Nunn’s 41 percent, while libertarian Amanda Swafford takes 6 percent support and another 6 percent remain undecided in the new poll of likely voters, conducted for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Another poll out this week, from SurveyUSA, gave Perdue a 3-point lead. Most polling has shown the race tight, though Democrats remain optimistic Nunn can overcome the red lean of the state and Obama’s deep unpopularity there this fall. Nunn

If we’ve learned anything about fighting terrorism in the 13 years since the Sept. 11 attacks, it’s this: Keep the hubris and the expectations in check. (Snip) The goal under President George W.

Obama wants only to beat back a threat, a far more modest and realistic goal. “The United States has a well-established tendency to overreact and to shoot itself in the foot,” Harvard Professor Stephen M.

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention.
