Does anyone know about the Ex Post Facto clause in the constitution? You can't make a law retroactive. While slavery was very wrong, it was LEGAL back then. You can't sue someone for something that is illegal now when it was legal in the past. Maybe I should sue Ford for not having airbags in my old 1990 Ford Tempo (RIP), because cars are required to have them now. Automatic seatbelts are illegal now, my Tempo had them, so I was obviously held down from using the car to its full potential (a whole 83 mph!
) because of the fear of getting into a wreck and getting killed. While I'm at it, I'm suing Adam and Eve's descendants for causing war, poverty, and retards to infest the earth.
Since when have handouts been beneficial to anyone? The only welfare programs that actually work are the ones where the recipient is required to learn job skills or other similar stuff in order to receive their check. How many lottery winners have you heard of that used their earnings to start a business and are now making much more money than what they got from the lottery? Absolutely none. Did you know that 1/3 of all lottery winners go BANKRUPT? That's just pathetic. There is NO reason to think the situation will be different when someone receives a reparation check.
On my mom's side, I'm a first generation American, on my Dad's side, I'm a who-the-fuck-knows generation American, how much money should I give?
How can anyone take Jonnie Cochran and Jesse Jackson seriously when they talk about how blacks are disadvantaged while they have $100 bills overflowing from their pockets? And if you believe that they are sticking up for those who don't have a voice, I have a bridge in Brooklyn you might like to buy.
