Video of the Day: Congressman, “We’re Not Going to Pay Slavery Reparations”

On Tuesday, the House voted to give $4.55 billion to black and American Indian “farmers” who claim the Department of Agriculture or the Interior Department discriminated against them in some way. The word “farmers” is in quotation marks because, in one lawsuit alone, five times as many people filed for refunds than ever owned or operated a farm in any way. As we described in October, this is part of Barack Obama’s plan to give minority groups that vote heavily Democratic — including blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, and women – “stealth reparations.” The standard of evidence for discrimination is startlingly low, which fuels the number of applicants ready to cash in at the taxpayers’ expense. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, is an uncompromising patriot who urged his fellow Congressmen to vote against the funding and to “make investigation of Pigford fraud a top priority.” This is part of his impassioned (and unfortunately unheeded) speech on the House floor against this big government wealth transfer.

  1. Lincoln's war of Northern Aggression, had nothing to do with freeing slaves. Like they say, the winner writes the history.

    • amen…

    • spoken truthfully. kudos. you know your history

    • Kathleen Nobile says:

      Bulls__T!!!!! Ignorance is STILL bliss I guess.

      • I guess it is, and YOu make the point all by yourself.
        FACT: The Civil War was NOT fought over slavery. It was fought to prevent ANY STATE from succeeding from the Union. PERIOD!
        The Confederates were fight for their RIGHT to do so. They lost.
        Slavery had nothing to do with it. Lincoln freed the slaves well after the Civil War was over.
        There were plenty of Union officers that were slave owners.
        So, kathleen, apparently YOU are the ignorant one.

        • Angelicsweep says:

          You are right about slavery NOT being the purpose of the War of Northern aggression but wrong on the cause. It was basic economics and pure out and out jealousy. Slavery was brought into the equation to stir up support for the north. There is much more to it but that is it boiled down in a nutshell. The South had the RIGHT to pull away from the union, but the union had too much to lose. This is what happens when the President over reaches his powers. One thing that is NOT mentioned hardly at all is the fact that there were a whole lot of blacks that fought FOR THE SOUTH!

          The north was the primary slave portal and at first the blacks were NOT well recieved. The language barrier was one reason. At the time that they were being brought over here, most people preferred endentured slaves…ones of british, irish lineage. ONE very important fact to those who start this slave issue is that WE did not invent slavery, WE didn’t even start this period of “slavery” in the Americas”. It was the Dutch and Portuguese who bought these people from THEIR OWN PEOPLE who were more than willing to sell. The ones they sold were “spoils” of war between tribes and the trouble makers. It wasn’t that the poor Africans were stolen from their lovely homes and put into slavery…they were ALREADY slaves! If they stayed where they were, death was a sure thing!

  2. He said "because they think they can get away with it"….THEY DO GET AWAY WITH IT….every years thousands, maybe tens of thousands of blacks put reparations on they're tax forms, and get it!
    This is a lie….reparations are paid out each and every year.
    It needs to stop!
    NOW!

  3. What else is obummer going to find to further put this country in debt.
    We will never get out of debt. I hate the fact that he's borrowing so
    much from the chinese. You can't trust them.

  4. Rep. King is RIGHT, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, WE DO NOT OWE PEOPLE WITH DARK SKIN ANYTHING ANYMORE, AS IT IS THEY GET MORE THEN WHAT THEY SHOULD.

  5. No slavery = no blacks, is that what they are saying they want? Very few blacks would have been able to come to America had it not been for slavery and yes some of those blacks had slaves themselves. Slavery has always been bad but it has happened to every race in existence. At Gettysburg alone in just under 4 days 50,000 men died to free the slaves, when do they thank those men for giving it all for their freedom? Show me one slave that is still alive today (that was really a slave) and we will give him a few bucks and in return he can thank our nation for fighting for his freedom, which has never happened in the history of mankind.

  6. King is SO RIGHT, another thing for the millions of people who are unemployed, when you have gone to the Welfare Depts, have you noticed just about all of the employees are BLACK? THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS, if you put on an application that you are BLACK, YOU WILL GET A JOB WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT. TRY IT WHITE PEOPLE, PUT ON YOUR APPLICATION YOU ARE BLACK, BET YOU'LL GET EMPLOYMENT.

  7. Az Native says:

    There are a lot of WHITE AMERICANS who have died to protect this nation so that others could have freedom here, where is their reparations…the problem is, many were already given farms, etc…years ago….these are people trying to get something off the backs of others illegally and it is truly criminal in nature…..it is CALLED FRAUD AND EMBEZZLEMENT and CONSPIRACY To DEFRAUD OUT NATIONAL TREASURY…any Congressman that goes along with it, should be charged right along with these people……..

  8. Az Native says:

    It is not about race, it is about what is right…..many Whites have indian in their bloodlines and we aren't asking for anything….enough is enough…get a job! There are also many many white Americans who worked in the fields growing up. I know my mother's mother died when she was 9 years old, she had to raise her brothers and sisters and they all worked in cotton patches and every kind of field you can imagine from Texas to Arizona…..until she was sixteen years old, she never got restitution for her hard labor and still doesn't….so why do these people think they deserve something for nothing. No more restitution, it isn't their money, they need to get out and work like everybody else. After seeing the lady who was making $190,000 a year off of welfare, if she was that smart, just think what would happen if she started a company…she knew how to work the system to get $190,000 a year…..as far as I'm concerned if you are able to work, if you take this money you are are stealing from our national treasury and that is embezzlement and you should be prosecuted. No more handouts….

    • RONALD RYDER says:

      I think something that happen so long. Ago is best left to the history book because time and time again history tells us that if we do not lrean the lession that it is trying to teach than never forget that history can repeat it self. And after all the american indains where the very first one here long befor any one else white or black we show the white man how plant corn and how to live there new land and how did they repay us. By stealing our land and killing us and the us leaders. Have broken every promise that they have ever made to the american indain the only true real american to this day not one person has ever told the american indain we or so very very sorry for all of the horrable these that we done to you so while some blacks may of had it a litter rough at times my poeple and all of the rest of the americans had it so much wrost because after all we were. Here first iam a member of the ATAKAPA-ishk band of american indains think about it.

  9. ROBERT AUGERI says:

    I should file a claim that I have been discriminated against. I have Affirmative action working against me and all white people. I think it is time to do away with all these bills. It has been long enough for people of minorities to get jobs or go to college without this affirmative action any more. Wake up America and shake your politicians tree.

  10. Az Native says:

    Blacks did receive reparations already, and many have been on welfare for 20 years, what do you call that…..they've had enough it is time for them to go to work like the rest of us, no matter what your color of skin is, this country has paid enough…many have died to keep this nation free so that all races could enjoy the freedom to make your own way…..get off welfare, no reparations, go get a real job…..if you are not disabled and not elderly you can work. Many of us are trail mixes, we have Indian, Irish, etc. in our bloodlines and we don’t get handouts…why should others. Indians are doing better than most of us, they are smarter, they have great business savvy and they are some of the most creative talented people of our nation…..this administration is just trying to pit all the races against each other for their own sick cause of becoming a communistic country. Don't buy into their sickness.

    • THAT WAS WELL SAID.. .I AM 1/4 INDIAN MY GRAND MOTHER WAS A DAUTHER OF A INDIAN CHEIF ..OF THE CHEROKEE TRIBE IN GA .. HE HAS A MONMENT IN MOUNTION VIEW AREA IN N/E GEORGIA … ALL THAY GOT WAS NONTHING ,,, THAY STILL SURIVED ,SHE DIED AT THE AGE OF 89 .GOD BLESS HER ..

    • doberkidsmom says:

      …..this administration is just trying to pit all the races against each other for their own sick cause of becoming a communistic country” This is exactly what they want and have been trying to do……..you’ve hit the nail on the head.

      I’d think anyone of color with any self respect????????????

    • Just as many white's and spanish people are on welfare and have always been as well. So do some governmental research please.

  11. Az Native says:

    O'Bama does not understand this nation or our history, he is trying to pit everybody against everybody so that you don't see what he is really doing, trying to turn this nation into an Islamic Muslim radical country. If he wants to give somebody money he can give it out of his own pocketbook, but our national treasury does not belong to him.

    • sorry Az Native, but obama knows exactly what hes doing, and he understands it all. hes a muslim bought by soros, to break our economy and bring our country down. and, YES, we sure do need more men (and women) like Mr King, ones that tells the truth and cares about our country. those persons who brought the "slave" suit have alot of nerve trying to suit the whole country when it wasnt even fully formed yet!!!! if they want to suit someone–go after the rich southern plantation owners ancestors that are still living on the same ground down south—and they are probable still rich.

    • President Obama didn't elected him self as a president, you Native did and what do you wont now. Beside he is just doing his job and following orders of all other big team bihind him who are teling him what to do. He is not giving tax payer money the others are doing it.

  12. J.LEEMCCONNELL says:

    MR.KING IS RIGHT,THIS IS NONSENCE,WE DONT HAVE SLAVES ANYMORE,AND IM TIRED OF BLACKS ALWAYS USING THE RACE CARD AS A CRUTCH,SO THEY CAN GET THEIR WAY.WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO STAND UP LIKE MR.KING AND TELL THE TRUTH,WHETHER ITS POLITICALY CORRECT OR NOT.

  13. If anything,the blacks owe the Lincoln Republican’s money, for fighting for their freedom! Without the civil war,they would still be slaves! I’ll take my cash now, with a thank you white republicans for setting me free..

  14. real_patriot says:

    its about time someone called it quits on this nonsense. jessie Jackson lost the Lib nomination for repeated use of the term "Reparations" my relatives came from Ireland. Peter Garahan recieved his citizenship in 1892.
    Black people may have been slaves but were fed and clothed and housed as the valuable commodity they were, all slavery aside. Try being a FREE Irishman. Free to be kicked out of your home by English landlords, free to starve, free to die of exposure, free to be attacked or killed for simply Being , free to die of disease or neglect. Many Irishmen hopped off the boat simply to be put in the Union military and marched off into Confederate canon-fire. As an Irish-American, I owe NO ONE ANYTHING.
    I thank God, Peter Garahan and the Constitution for that.

  15. dannymprado says:

    The Blacks are NOT entitled for any reparations, instead, they should be GRATEFUL to America for lifting them up from slavery in Europe. while the American Indians, they are inhabitants of America, if there was any harm done to these Native Americans, they should be compensated. Give them land to live and the life they badly need. If American pays every race that live in America for anything harships they suffered from their own faults, then America will soon be totally bankrupt , because the illegal immigrants especially from Mexico, will also file for a reparations for not allowing them to cross the borders. How about the Chinese, The Japanese, and the Polish? It will never stop until America surrenders their last red cent.

  16. By purposely destroying our Nations economy with an endless succession of billion dollar checks to foreign and domestic groups, Obama has tipped his hand to all who have eyes to see and ears to hear. This Imposter
    is naught but a puppet of the real movers and shakers in the wings of the White House..Senate and congress who fully intend to destroy our Republic and replace it with a Marxist Socialist nightmare regime.
    Before this pretender can do anymore damage, join the groundswell of citizens who are demanding full disclosure of his missing credentials….and then his removal from office along with all His treasonous collaborators.

  17. Forget paid for with a lot of Yankee blood, how about PAID FOR WITH A LOT OF WHITE BLOOD??????? 620,000 WHITE AMERICANS were slaughtered on the battle fields, MORE than ALL the solider deths in WW1, WW2 Korea and Vietnam COMBINED! NEVER in recorded history had a country spilled so much blood supposedly freeing an alien slave in their county, and yet these UNAPPRECIATIVE BLACKS dare want more? SHAME ON THESE REPROBATES!

  18. Reparations are just the tip of the iceberg. Just another humiliation for the Caucasian population of our beloved United States of America to eat. Imagine the unimaginable, a person elected who refuse to pledge allegiance to the flag! He know he can get away with anything and YES he is doing it! Now that politically organized 'MINORITIES' are out-breeding whites and they are enjoying the fruits of their years long strategy to strip and humiliate and enjoy the long overdue bashing of the Causcasion majority in the USofA, it is time for the sleeping giant of White America to wake up before they are completely ripped off and their beautiful white children and lineage grandsons and daughters, are married and giving birth to half-breed idiots that are currently swarming the streets, schools, businesses and halls of power in our once beloved and powerful nation. Everyone in this country and globally knows that Mr. George Soros had put his half-breed puppet manchurian Barry/Barack installed in the White House to be the wrecking ball in the demolition of our once free and blessed land. The FACTS speak for themselves. This country is being turned into once giant plantation, God Help Us..

  19. Christians were slaves long before blacks were this is just more insanity coming from the Obama administration. I’ve always wonder why the blacks that were freed from slavery didn’t run back to Africa Maybe the ones here can use some of that 700 billion that the rest of the country never saw a penny of.
    Oh wait Harry Reed saw some of it with that 10 lave freeway in each direction I 15 heading into and out of Las Vegas a real plus for the country. While we here in California sit mired in traffic going about 25 miles an hour that’s from our friend 30 billion Boxer another person who couldn’t run an ANT FARM

    • plunderpower says:

      The first slave owner in America was a black man who happened to be one of the first servants to work long enough to purchase his own freedom.

  20. Burt James III Esq. says:

    Good! Why should we pay for our ancestors mistakes when we are STILL paying for the so-called 14th Amendment slavery through FDR's so-called new deal and our own enslavement via the SSN! I would like to be re-paid for all the discrimination that I have been subject to since I am not under the scope and purview of that never lawfully ratified amendment. For "them" to be "re-paid" is to say that they were a direct subject of slavery, and then the truth would come out i.e. all U.S. citizens are subjects in servitude. How could this government of fiction possibly re-pay all of you U.S. slaves?

  21. THIS JUST ANOTHER WAY OBAMA CAN GET SOME MORE DEMOCRATIC VOTES. AMERICA DOES NOT OWE THESE PEOPLE A DAMN THING. ITS JUST AN OBAMA PLOY TO KEEP UP WHAT HE HAS BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS, "BANKRUPT AMERICA" HE DOES NOT LIKE IT THE WAY IT IS NOW, AND HAS BEEN FRO MORE THAN 200 YEARS. CANT AMERICANS SEE THRU THIS PHONY IN THE WHITE HOUSE. ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE PEOPLE. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR BACKSIDE.

  22. Amen, brother, preach on. Reparations are not warranted, and we can't afford more debt.

  23. Haven't we already been paying reparations in the form of entitlements ie: welfare and medicaid? If there is a slave still alive that is entitle to reparations, let them step forward. If you were not a slave then you have no claim! At what point are they going to step up and admit that they have the same opportunities (if not more) as everyone else, If they don't step up and do something for themselves no one or no amount of money is going to make thier lives or thier childrens lives better! Welfare is just another form of slavery, it is the Democrates way of keeping thier voting base. If it were ever cut off and they had to get out and take care of themselves and actually pay taxes like the rest of us, they might vote a little different, then where would the Dems be?

  24. GoTellBigDaddy says:

    Stop the madness.

    The WikiLeaks are a result of an offshore hacker leading the effort to gather information from the World Wide Web and other sources. Any information passed to the WWW is public domain. To think that the information is secure is usually based upon a false premise. Information can be secured but every system, method and ingress or egress point is vulnerable.

    So now, the US politicians are reacting, ducking and hiding until this incident passes over.

    What can you learn from this?

    US Policies are not what they should be nor are US diplomatic directives which are policy driven. Our nations will enforced upon other nations will meet resistance. How much say do American taxpayers have in what elected officials do on behalf of America? How much power do politicians exert in their diplomatic seats? What is reasonable?

    Still, anyone can argue that the President needs to have power to turn off the Internet (Rockefeller ~ Snowe) at his discretion. Ludicrous and foolish and that's the level of control that the US Government is exerting over its citizenry. It's too late and often just as we experienced 9/11 it was too late. There are other historical moments when the United States ignored intelligence, data, indicators and expert advice and we found that it was too late. Pearl Harbor is a classic example.

    The WikiLeaks should send a wake up call to every American. Why are our elected officials speaking, writing and acting this way? They are supposed to be DIPLOMATS. Our national policies affect behavior and behavior is reflected upon by every nation, government and person. Then to consider our behaviors past and present, do they reflect the best possible image? Sadly, the US military images leaked by Wiki Leaks reveal a negative image of armed services personnel.

    Pundits will argue that Internet security is lacking. Too a degree they are correct but let's put it into perspective. Speed, accuracy and security are three defined points in any communications form that are imperfect. Two of the qualities are usually obtainable with high degrees of success but not three. One can compromise another. Handing over absolute control (ability of the President to turn OFF the Internet) is not in anyone's best interest. Absolute power corrupts and the US media is a classic example of the elite driven media driving American politics and influencing Americans with propaganda. Americans need also question why most security appliances and hardware is readily manufactured in China and then concurrently why does anyone ponder over how the Chinese hackers broke into US military sites and the White House systems?

    Common sense and acting within reason has escaped the abilities of those in power running our Governments.

    The powerful and elite received a wakeup call too that was indifferent to their threats to sue and now arrest the man behind WikiLeaks. I am not defending his actions nor am I condemning him or his fellow members. What should be condemned and changed is how our Government acts, behaves and errantly creates many of the problems we endure while representing the interests of "We the People."

    Our Government and Corporations have crafted and reacted solely in their best interests with the creation of the global economy. This didn't occur overnight and has been in the making for decades. We've seen the signs or indicators of it and today many families are experiencing the reality of the Global Market. When folks reflect upon this and the current situation and outcrying over the WikiLeaks one can't find it somewhat amusing. Our leaders want to arrest, incarcerate and execute those behind the WikiLeaks as terrorists and yet for our leaders to have crafted and influenced as they have with the Global Market; and then not to know how to behave globally should send a message to everyone that our leaders are in conflict. We simply can't continue with the status quo nor can they position themselves as they are currently doing to placate the American public with job creation and promises to fix the hacker/whistle blower problem of Wiki Leaks by execution.

    Our problems are serious, deep rooted and yet our biggest problem remains our Government.

    What would you have our Government do differently? Why?

  27. I agree wholeheartedly with the comment about affirmative action. Well, what better proof that affirmative action is a huge mistake than the prime beneficiaries of it: Obama and his Harvard-educated wife Michelle. They may have some intellect, but no common sense at all. If Obama had attended a community college he would not have ended up as President. Contrast him with Thomas Sowell, a brilliant black conservative professor at ( I think) Sanford who always detested affirmative action, because people would wrongly assume he's at a prestigious college because of his skin pigment and not his determination and intellect. The liberals always talk about "all people treated equally"-so how come they are the ones who support this cr-p?

  28. Lookin' on says:

    It's about time someone stood up. No one says anything because that 'ace' in the hole is almost always the race card that inevitably is played if the truth is spoken. As a white American, I feel ashamed of the way we have treated welfare etc recipients because it has led to more and more dependency on the gov't taking care of people. It has placed African Americans and North American natives in the hole intead of giving a correctly measured helping hand to a self sustaining life.

  29. James Simmonds says:

    We cannot be responsible now for attempting to repair something from the past for which we were not present at the time. Nor should we be challenged to feel guilty for any such occurance. Right now, our struggles are more comparable to the American Revolutionary era in trying to prevent a tyrannical govt. from permanently enslaving us from the cradle to the grave. Our individual freedoms are in grave danger and if we don't fight this battle collectively,then we will become the same type of country from which so many come here to escape. The race card is like the joker, if it is included in the deck, it shows up occasionally but is of no real value and yields no respect for those that play it.

  30. America is like the Salt Lick of the world, everybody that comes here illegally gets a free lick, theses so called slaves that have never known a day of slavery in their lives, want a free lick. These people look at America like a money pot and they hold out their greedy little hands wanting something for free. Look at Obama, went to school on the tax payers dime and now doing everything he can to sack the kingdom. His wife got educated for free thanks to the tax payers but she is just recently proud to be an American. Charlie Rangle should be doing time but is simply getting a slap on the wrist and he is crying about that. Eric Holder and his unwillingness to prosecute the new black panthers, we are seeing the direction of things to come. Mark my words if steps are not taken to put a stop to it we will find Obama has sold this country to the wind. DREAM ACT, AMNESTY, REPARATIONS, elected officials putting American citizens on the back burner while they seek rights for criminals not even of this country. If people cannot see what is going on then they are either blind or stump stupid. Read more at_________ basharr.wordpress.com

      Partner, you hit the nail right on the head where it hurts. I really loved the "Salt Lick of the world" portion, that condenses the whole point of the story. They forget there were indentured slaves as well. I know I was never a "Massah" and I am sure there are no slaves alive so give it up. It demonstrates the mind set of the people wanting reparations even when they know the USA is 13 or so trillion dollars in debt thanks to their counter part, Obama. I'm sure a lot of tax payers would chip in to send them back to Africa.

      • I for one will go door to door to raise funds for the return "home" of these poor decendents of slaves. They don't HAVE to go, mind you. But if they choose to stay there's going to be a couple of rules. Rule #1- shut up, and Rule #2- work. Enforce those two rules and they'll be SURE to take the trip to their beloved African continent.

  31. I want to know what the hell this government is paying any black person reparations for? It was their tribal leaders that often sold them into slavery. Besides that, who int this country that is alive today has been a slave? What is done is done but todays citizens need not pad the wallets of people who were never slaves, never bought from their tribal leaders, and never damaged to the affect they are seeking reparations. It boils down to this are they Americans given the chance to live the American dream, because people laid their life on the line so they have that right and now their thank you is PAY ME!!! What a load of crap.! Get a freaking life and quit looking for a free ride.

  32. We should… but, also, proof of slave owners should get 2% of salries of athletes of 'slave' decent. b/c if it werent for the slave owners 'culling the weak, and making stronger/more productive slaves', these athletes would no exhist.

  33. If the U.S. government ever did pay these Negroes, Wetbacks, etc, free money in Reparations; there would be thousands of new Crack and Drug heads and Winos out there just living for free, and not even trying to better themselves. When that money runs, they'll be back wanting more, it'll never end. Once a lazy Negro, always a lazy Negro.

    • Oh how they (white liberals, in particular, as FRANKLY, blacks are less likely to even read this, or anything else) HATE it when someone speaks the simple facts. Keep on heckling citizen. You do us all a service.

  34. To be HISTORICALLY CORRECT, White people were the first slaves as indentured servants. The American Indian lost far more but we have gone to war and been there to defend OUR VALUED COUNTRY. Lyndon Johnson thought that he was smarter than JESUS when he robbed the Social Security System. Once again the democrats want to give YOUR MONEY AWAY but do not give up any of their own personal fortune up to pay these ludicrous ideas. the kennedy fortune is still in kennedy hands but many more millions were spent by them than any of their personal fortune. LET CONGRESS GIVE UP THEIR PAY INCREASES AND LIFETIME SALARY FOR THE GOOD OF THE US ECONOMY.

  35. Rep King is right. This is just another form of wealth redistribution and the buying of votes by Obozo. The rules for application are too lax or none at all. Frankly, I don't want to pay slavery reparations because none of the people involved were slaves, there are no living blacks today who were slaves, and even if there were, I personally had no part in slavery so why should I pay? The Obozo maniac must be stopped. Perhaps when the new congress takes office in January, they can refuse to fund any of his wild schemes.

  36. Our problem is that most white people have tried to do right thing all through out history for the good and betterment of man kind.
    Whites have worked hard to help those who could not help them selves for what ever reason they found themselves in.
    Blame your parents for not doing better for you instead of blaming the whites race.. Whites are not responsible for you … You are…
    Yes, there were some that were truly evil in our past to others for the gain in there own pockets …. Just like what we see in our White House..
    WAKE UP…. You really have had it damn good off the backs of the American white people for a very long time now and enough is enough
    The attack of White America has got to come stop …. by the way things are going we may all become slaves …
    So for the acts of a few evil people of our past, Do not condemn all whites that gave you your first hand up out of love for humanity …
    Stop sucking the life out with acts of thievery .
    Whites may hit you back with your own trash you heave, its getting thin…

I've never heard so much craziness in all my life, as I've heard in the last 2 years, coming out of there…and each time I hear something different, it seems to cost more than the thievery tool before it. Isn't this country in enough debt already? Aren't the American taxpayers paying out enough already? How much of this Washington, DC, BS are we supposed to cover before enough is enough? Next thing you know, we're all going to be scrambling to sell a kindney just to be able to cover the next 'brilliant' idea with a dollar sign that comes from the 'Hell spot' of America.

  40. Is anyone else aware that what's going on here is a diversion? Those morons in DC are creating a race war between the white population, the black population and Native American Indians! Why? Have you seen how many mosques have been erected around the country? Are you aware of the population explosion of Muslims in this country, particularly in Michigan(?), where they've all but monopolized the state? (And various towns around the country.) Pot is illegal here, but they want to be able to use THEIR drug of choice- the name escapes me now -without consequence, and it's being taken into consideration! (It's not a drug that's at all common in the USA.)

  41. The Muslims also want their Sharia Law put in place for them HERE, which is also being taken into consideration. All this despite the fact that these things are definitely against US laws in any state! If you beat your wife, you go to jail. Not under Sharia Law. If you smoke pot, chances are, you go to jail. Their drug of choice, from what I hear, is similar to pot, but you don't go to jail for using that. My point in all of this? Most (normal) Americans are against the passing of such laws that would protect Muslims from jail time when Americans would do time for the same thing.

  42. In order to get these laws passed with minimal hassles from the public, the public needs to be distracted. The distraction that's currently being created is this race war! If the public is too busy fighting a race war, while our military is fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, all the while fighting the economy, are we distracted??? And, for the weaker minded people, tf they get too tired of all these battles there's always this (where the Muslims are concerned): If you can't beat 'em, joib 'em. Believe it or not, the long-term goal of the Muslims (including Obama) is conversion…that is, converting as many infidels, as possible, to Islam! I could go on and on, but here's your reasoning for talk of reparations, what it's hiding, and what it's actually trying to lead to. No, people! I'm NOT crazy!

    Washingtonians have gone mad: senators congressmen and everyone else!!! I did NOT injured any one: not blacks, not native americans,not immigrants, NO ONE! If anything OBAMA is injuring the Citizens of the United States by wasting OUR money, Billions of it, just for the heck of it. Does HE, OBAMA hate US so much that he wants US completely BROKE and Desperate, at the mercy of other Countries. I did not want to admit this, but Obama seems to be on a mission to DESTROY US. The Powes that be better take a very close look at this before WE are NO MORE ….

  46. You forgot to mention, the bill just allowed a group of people to take their grievances to court. no money was spent…..How very unconstitutional of you to not think that was the right thing…but the spin was good…
