Link to Article - Gavin Newsom's reparations dodge proves Democrats see them only as a political stunt I obviously don’t comment on every topic for a variety of reasons. Sometimes I don’t comment on things because it’s not my strong suit or it’s just not of great interest to me.
The black comments at the hearing on reparations said a lot of "No Reparations, No Vote". This appeals to democrats' obsession with getting and keeping political power. My whole life has been infused with the race problem: affirmative action, race riots, being called racist because I am not a minority, welfare, school choice, teacher unions, CRT, endless claims of injustice, race-based admissions to college, BLM, Summer of Love. Race-hucksters are never satisfied with progress, and bankrupting the country wouldn't satisfy them either. This wouldn't be the last thing that ends racial tension. In fact, it would generate hostility and resentment fueling racial tension and even more democrat outrage. Enough!
If Governor Hair Gel can’t endorse reparations, then everything you say about them is 100% correct. And again, where would all the money come from?
Great post as always. You remind me of a kinder Mark Twain or perhaps a Will Rogers commenting on culture. Unfortunately living in CA, this political whiplash - as opposed to climate whiplash Newsom speaks of when questioned about the consequences of the abundant rain we received when we were told we were in a mega drought that would continue until we accepted all draconian climate measures - will continue. Yes, payments will be made. But real change? How about asking some big tech companies to run some schools in Compton? If reparations for past harm were serious, there would be a serious queue. Goodness gracious the State gleefully locked up the Japanese during WWII and some called for their execution.
My neighbor, Andrew, and American-Japanese made the following comment:
When California does reparations, it'll be like the Dust Bowl: Detroit will move to San Francisco.
