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

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.

A human rights group reports that Islamic State militants in a Kurdish area of northern Syria have beheaded seven men and three women as part of an apparent campaign to quell resistance to the group. (Snip) Referring to President Obama´s speech on the treat of the militant group, Cantlie says: "It was all disappointingly predictable; America is good, the Islamic State is bad; and they will be defeated using aircraft and a motley collection of fighters on the ground. For their part the Islamic State say they welcome meeting Obama´s under-construction army." Also on Tuesday, British warplanes joined in airstrikes

An investigation was underway Tuesday after Iraqi military pilots mistakenly gave food, water and ammunition to enemy ISIS militants instead of their own soldiers, a senior security official and a brigadier told NBC News. The supplies were supposed to help besieged Iraqi army officers and soldiers who had been fighting Islamist extremists for a week in Saglawyah and the village of Al-Sijar in the country’s western province of Anbar. “Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” said Hakim Al-Zamili, a Sadrist lawmaker

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) made fresh advances in both Syria and Iraq on Monday, in defiance of the escalating United States-led bombing campaign against the jihadist group. For almost two months now, Tomahawk missiles and F22 Raptor jet fighters have bombarded the bases, strategic assets and front-line positions of Isil jihadists. But the group’s encroachment on Baghdad is steadily progressing and it is close to seizing a key Kurdish village on the Syria-Turkey border. Isil gunmen were reported to be six miles away from some points of Baghdad, and were holding their ground at a

Kay Hagan of North Carolina holds a narrow three-point advantage over her Republican challenger, according to a new CNN/ORC International survey. But the poll indicates that Thom Tillis, the GOP nominee, may be falling behind Hagan because a Libertarian candidate could be siphoning off Republican votes.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. military is spending as much as $10 million per day on its new air war against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a relative pittance compared with the hundreds of millions it spent fighting every day in Afghanistan in 2013. The costs in Iraq and Syria will escalate substantially if, as President Obama and Pentagon officials have said, the new war lasts for years, according to military analysts. Flying and maintaining warplanes requires a substantial investment in weaponry and personnel. "If airstrikes in Syria and Iraq continue for as long as the president predicts, they

Airstrikes in Syria against the extremist Khorasan group were prompted by planning for an “imminent” terror attack on U.S. soil, the Pentagon said. (Snip) Amid attention on the threat from Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Khorasan has emerged in recent weeks as a more immediate peril in the view of the U.S. intelligence community because it’s more focused on attacking America and Europe. The militant group is made up of a “network of seasoned al-Qaeda veterans” preparing to attack “United States and Western interests,” the Defense Department said in a statement. That “puts them at the top of groups threatening

As many as 500,000 people could be infected with Ebola virus disease by the end of January, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The CDC estimate, due to be released this week, is based on “dynamic modeling” and assumes no additional aid to help battle the disease, a person familiar with the report told the Washington Post.

On Sunday, a gaggle of queer folks will be joining the “People’s Climate March,” a rally in New York City projected to attract more than 100,000 attendees. Unfortunately, those who could help the cause the most are the least likely to show up. Marching under banners such as “Queers for the Climate,” LGBT climate activists are, first and foremost, agitating for action on climate change. But they are also saying something about what LGBT activism should be about, and saying something quite different from the (current) gay mainstream. The question is whether they can make an impact.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience.

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished.

Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people.
