    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 ?
    What? They actually apologized for this?

    Good grief.

    Isn't the fact that we ended slavery over 100 years ago, an apology in and of itself?

    Now a generation, which had nothing to do with slavery, is apologizing for something they had no hand in.

    This couldnt be more stupid, pointless, or completely asinine.

    Next up for Congress: Apologizing to England for the Revolutionary War.

    I think Africa should apologize for slavery...they're the ones who sold us the slaves, after all.

    I don't mean to insult those who fail to think and believe it is some how useful to claim you're sorry for something you didn't do or have anything to do with what ever. But that's just plain stupid.
    As for insulting the Granola Liberals B. the -B- Boxer, DiFi the ugly, and Piglousy. I was being nice to them.

    That was already done if fact that is how the "country" of Liberia got "founded". And the former slaves were so grateful for the "free tickets " that they named the new capital of the new country Monrovia and the one and only and famous James THE President Monroe. They even modeld their flag silimar to the US Flag.

    You missed the whole thing. You do not need to aplogize for anything it was already done for you by the Senate. Why don't you write to your Senators and ask that your name be removed from the Hallmark Apology card??

    I dare you !!! lol
