Reparations Derangement Syndrome

A panel in California, where rotten public policy ideas metastasize like a fungus growing in dark, slimy conditions, has approved paying reparations to descendants of slaves. It is impossible to overstate just how insane this is. The reparations task force, appointed by Boy Gov. Gavin Newsom, voted Saturday to recommend the state pay out as much as $800 billion to the descendants of enslaved or free black people who were in the U.S. by the end of the 19th century. That’s 2.5 times the size of California’s annual budget. Recipients could rake in as much as $1.2 million each. Or more. Much more. Because San Francisco’s reparations advisory committee has recommended

Further evidence that California's statehood should be suspended and the state placed under the jurisdiction of a commission to stop this insanity and get California back on track.....kind of how DC used to be before they were mistakenly given home rule.

The *point* of this is to set ridiculously high expectations that can't possibly be met and thereby enrage those potential recipients when it doesn't happen. And, the rage won't be felt only in CA....

I believe California should pay every minority $1.5 million each, and raise taxes by 40% to pay for it. Then pay a guaranteed minimum income of $90,000 for every family. California is a wealthy state. And since California is the "model for the country", I believe occupants of other states should be allowed to vote in their elections, as it is a model for them, and California taxes worldwide income, maybe occupants of the planet should be allowed to vote in their elections. Everyone in California should be mandated to have all shots, or not be allowed to work, or go anywhere. Californians, being the "model", should be issued a social credit score to ensure they follow the model. Cars, trucks, appliances, lead, paint, lumber, copper, oil and gas, fertilizer, meat, and electricity, all should be banned from the state. Save the planet! California is the model!

When society realizes they can "save" $1.2Million with every .25cent bullet expended, the simple economic Cost/Benefit rubric will get "Loud". "There is something completely untenable about a movement that has ever increasing and constant demands for atonement, with never a mention of forgiveness"

Fine by me, as long as they deduct the cost of casualties, deaths, economic devastation, military spending, illness, and psychological upheaval--both during and as a result of the Civil War. Factor those expenses into the deal, adjusted for inflation. While they're at it, they can calculate on the disparate financial impact black crime has had on our nation. To be generous, let's just go back to the start of the Civil Rights movement for those numbers, but round up when we come to the George Floyd era. Fair is fair.

IF this ever took place, every single recipient would become suddenly aware of Tax Rates, particularly upon those with a high net worth, there would be a MASSIVE "take the money and run" contingent that moves elsewhere, another MASSIVE contingent that Sells the properties they currently own to the new recipients at a suddenly inflated market rate and flees to another state, and the remaining Nouveau/Nuevo Riche ones would vote for ANYONE that will promise to reduce confiscatory taxes.

If Republicans are the stupid party – and you will get no argument from us here about that – perhaps the correct label for today’s Democratic party is “brainless.” Witness what it did in just the past few days: President Joe Biden showed up at the pro-abortion EMILY’s List gala, where he said “I also want to thank my buddy Kamala who I work for up in the White House for leading on this issue.” This is not the first time Biden has mistaken Harris as president. The fact that she could be president is worse, since there are few in public office as dimwitted as she.

The long-delayed, much-awaited Durham report has finally dropped. And what it shows is nothing short of shocking: A conspiracy at the highest levels of our government to fix an election in favor of one candidate over another. This is not something that deserves merely a handslap or the usual Inside-The-Beltway tut-tutting. It’s a criminal act for which people should go to prison. Just for the record, this is far worse than Watergate. And that ended Richard Nixon’s presidency, even though he neither planned nor approved of the break-ins against the Democratic Party offices in the famed Watergate Hotel.

Former President Donald Trump has been much in the media in recent weeks, but not all or even most of the coverage has been favorable. Even so, he has stretched his lead against a field of potential Republican challengers significantly over the past month. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s lead against the Democratic field remains essentially the same, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. In the online poll, taken from May 3-5, we asked 703 Democrats and those leaning Democrat, and 469 Republicans and those leaning Republican who their preferred candidate would be. The margin of error for the Democratic sample was +/- 4.0

At the heart of all fearmongering over the debt ceiling “crisis” is the claim that if the federal government can’t borrow more money it won’t be able to pay interest on its existing debt, leading to a default. But that’s poppycock. The government will collect more than a trillion dollars over the next three months. (It collected $638 billion in taxes in April alone.) That will be more than enough to pay interest on the debt. And it will be enough to pay all Social Security benefits, Medicare and Medicaid bills, welfare checks, food stamps. There will even be enough

There’s always a lot riding on a showdown between a president and Congress over raising the federal debt ceiling to avoid a government shutdown. But this year, as the 2024 election year looms, the stakes are particularly high. That could be bad news for President Joe Biden, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows, since his positions on debt, taxes and spending lack majority support even from Democratic voters. For our May online I&I/TIPP Poll, taken May 3-5 with a margin of error of +/-2.6 percentage points, we asked 1,480 adults across the country the following question:

After two years spent either ignoring the crisis at the southern border or refusing to blame President Joe Biden, the New York Times tepidly confessed this week that his border policies have, indeed, contributed to the surge in illegal immigration. Why now? In an email to subscribers, the Times senior writer David Leonhardt writes: When the U.S. makes it difficult for people to enter the country illegally, fewer people make the journey north to try. When the U.S. sends signals that people will be able to cross the border even without permission, and potentially remain here for years, more people attempt to do so. (Before you know it,

In the span of a few weeks, the Biden administration has proposed regulations that would effectively ban gas stoves, force a massive shift to electric cars, sharply raise the cost of dishwashers, increase loan costs for frugal borrowers, regulate puddles as “navigable waters,” and limit hunting and fishing across the country. It will soon release a proposed rule targeting power plants with hugely expensive carbon capture mandates. This is just the tip of the spear. As the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Clyde Wayne Crews put it recently, “President Biden is leading an unprecedented expansion of the administrative state.

Today, you’re not allowed to say a bad word about electric cars. They’re planet savers, after all. Environmentalists tell us so. But there will come a day — in the not-too-distant future — when the climate change fanatics will decide that EVs are planet killers, too. We’ve seen this bait-and-switch tactic before.

Ernest Hemingway made a similar observation when a person in his novel was asked how he went bankrupt, and his reply was, "Gradually, then suddenly." Nations are built upon classical values — perseverance, self-reliance, and honor. A great nation is one whose values have made it unusually prosperous. In its latter days, the nation becomes hollowed out and burdened with a costly, top-heavy government. The middle class is expected to provide generosity to the masses. Over time, traditional values fade away, and everyone seeks to live off everyone else. The United States shows aspects of
