Writing to anyone in an elected office here is like talking to rocks except the rocks are smarter as a rule.

    Just thought I would give you a heads up that there are moniker /knickname Nazi's running around here. I bumped into them in other theads. These Nazi's may not like your "Nasty Piglousy" knickname.

    I don't know if they will attack you or not but these Nazi's went whacko because I call Palin - 'Igloo Girl' . But who knows these Nazi's may hate Pelosi so they may not whine about you.

    I know that this is a feel good action on the part of the Club of One Hundred but apologizing for slavery is about time.

    Does anyone think that the Senate should not have appologized ? If so why.

    Does anyone think that the Senate should have made this a binding resolution AND made it with reparartions ?

    If so why.

    Does any think that now that the Senate has passed this resolution Blacks shoudl shut up already, get back to work, and don't cause any more problems ?

    Does anyone think that all of the 99 serving Senators should be thrown out of office for passing this resolution ?

    Apologizing for something that you did not do...to someone whom you did nothing to, is about as stupid and pathetic as you can get.

    They think they are buying favor with the big black thugs that are coming to get them. Next we'll see bumper stickers stating:
    "Please Don't hurt me, I Apologized"

    Bunch of knee-jerk cowards...all of them.

    So the Senate will basically be saying that they're sorry we every brought blacks over here.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I for one would support giving blacks free tickets back to Africa if they promise to stay there.

    The Northern cotton fabrick mills were rather happy to be able to buy raw material from the LAND OF COTTON and the mills knew about the slaeves but they just looked away, LOOKED AWAY Dixie Land.
    Yes, that's pretty much true, and I'm also aware that some 85% of free black women in New Orleans also owned slaves, from censuses dating back to before 1800 and afterward, and of pretty substantial free black slave dealers in New Orleans, Charleston, and other markets as well, so it would interesting to see how many blacks would pay up if they were to receive a bill to help pay reparations instead of receiving a check. I think quite a few black people would be in for a surprise and may want to rethink that whole reparations thing.

    In any case, Sherman's March and 'Reconstruction' managed to gut most of the rich white plantations, so I just curious who of them were left to be having such control over the southern Republican Party. There were only about 3,000 such families, the wealth in the South was extremely concentrated, so it shouldn't be hard to verify the claim I was responding to.

    I would support the same for Europeans, Asians and Hispanics.
