    Absolutely agree.

    I feel bad for Snyder and Bing in all this, who are committed to working together across party lines to find something that will work.
    Maybe ten years ago there was an attempt by Wayne county to shore up the property tax fiasco in Detroit. As you probably know, there's more than a few shenanigans with the property tax evaluations and collections in Detroit. Hell, a woman I know who made just over six figures annually, actually bragged that she just gives a clerk a few hundred each year to mark her taxes as paid for the year... It was absolutely rampant, countless Detroit celebrities were caught doing similar things, countless times. Wayne county offered to digitize all of the Detroit property records, handle the collection, and perform the foreclosure process and auctioning if not collectible... For free! They said that just collecting the actual county taxes owed would pay for it, Detroit balked... You can't take away a good scam, even at the expense of the residents.

    Let me present a bigger problem. If reparations are to be paid, who gets them? Do the recipients have to prove they descended from slaves are is money going to be paid out willy nilly to anyone with dark skin? What if your ancestors were never slaves here but rather they came from places like Cuba, Haiti, or Jamaica as well as other Caribbean islands that were slave ports? If that's the case then why do American tax payers have to foot the bill when the beef lies with Europe and more specifically with Portugal and Spain? Truth be told, this is nothing more than a money grab by these race baiting thugs so their people can stay in indentured servitude to the government.

    Still waiting for an answer you cowardly swooper and pooper.
