    Democrats wrote the book when it comes to buying votes at the taxpayer’s expense, but the chapter on reparations has yet to be released and the state of New Jersey is looking to be more than just a footnote here.

    From the same cabal that calls the killing of unborn children “reproductive justice,” we now have “reparative justice,” with black New Jersey lawmakers introducing a bill that would establish a Reparative Justice Task Force, as described in a press release from the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice.

    The bill calls for New Jersey to examine its role in slavery and racial discrimination or disparity that may have resulted from it, and if deemed necessary, pay reparations to black residents, the Associated Press reported.

    My best memory of New Jersey was watching it recede in my rear view mirror in 1975 when I moved to Florida!
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    We will still be hated and blamed no matter how much we give.

    Ditto. About 17 years ago I extracted the last of my stuff from that dump and severed my last remaining ties to it. Never missed it for an instant.

    Reparations are the perfect weapon for proggies. The levels of bureaucracy needed to determine who is eligible, and who has to pay in (what if your family history connects you to both a slave family and a Spanish slave trader? Do you pay yourself?), the divisiveness and distractions the whole thing creates, the ability to confiscate and redistribute wealth (mostly to buy votes with), as well as the massive opportunity to abuse the system for money laundering or just flat out fraud are all right up Regressive Alley, at the corner of Stay In Your Place Boulevard, across from the Communist Hotel.

    It's way too long in the past at this point for reparations to do any good. How do you put a price tag on it, anyways?

    We gave the Indians pretty much a monopoly on casino gambling outside of Vegas and Atlantic City, though. I'm not for giving Black Americans a monopoly on the legal weed business, but I am for encouraging all to invest in it. Or if church people object to investing in intoxicants, the hemp industry. Giving a cash payout to every person who descended from slaves is not realistic. But helping people make their own money is realistic.

    Well, illegals were handed everything so why not lazy blacks. At least they're citizens.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.
