Cory Booker to Unveil Bill to Create Reparations Study Commission

Posted by M. C. on April 9, 2019

If J Edgar Hoover was spawned by humans, his relatives are in line to take a big hit.

One thing for sure: This will take A LOT of administration. If job creation is part of the program the winner will be Washington.

How many thousands of years is the commission going to go back? The US is a third rate late comer in the world wide game of slavery.

I can’t wait to read what the commission considers “mission accomplished”, ending the program. What does victory look like? When it comes to government programs the mission is never accomplished. That is the point of most government programs.

The commission will have it’s work cut out.

How to handle those of Chinese, native American, Irish, Jewish, European, Korean, SE Asian, Hispanic, Catholic heritage that had nothing to do with slavery and/or are/were victims of something? Do they get a free pass?

Will blacks whose ancestors were black slavers here or in Africa be ineligible?

Will blacks and/or those with black ancestors with history of black on black crime be ineligible?

Muslims have a thousand year history of slaving that continues to this day. Will American Muslims be held accountable?

Quakers were the first religious organization in the US to condemn slavery. Will they get let off the hook?

Answer to all – NO. Will they be made to pay? If they are in the 50% of the population that has taxes stolen-you bet. Anyway, that is all minor stuff. The point is to get money flowing to someone.

A commission will be formed, it will unconstitutionally be allowed to regulate and spend money. Free stuff will be handed out. Many will get screwed. Many will take credit. Few who really need help will get a leg up. The US will continue to emulate and look like today’s UK.

Twenty years from now this will join other government success story along the lines of the war on drugs, war on poverty, Peace Corp, war on terrorism…


Senator and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Cory Booker (NJ) announced Monday he plans to introduce legislation that would form a commission to study reparations for black Americans.

“This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country,” a statement via Booker reads. “It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed.”…

Be seeing you
