    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Thursday delivered a speech at Clark Atlanta University, and declared that it is time to adopt Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) legislation on reparations.

    Warren delivered a speech at the historically black university Thursday evening and stressed the need to pass Lee’s reparations legislation, which “establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans.”

    “Let’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations,” Warren wrote in a tweet containing a video of her remarks:

    “America was founded on principles of liberty and built on the backs of enslaved people. [It’s] time to adopt H.R. 40, Sheila Jackson Lee’s reparations plan. [It’s] time to do what’s right, so that our nation can begin to heal,” Warren stated.

    The commission, according to the summary, would examine slavery and discrimination from 1619 to the modern era and “recommend appropriate remedies.”

    The remedy should be a bus ticked home to anyone not satisfied with their life here.
    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.

    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Hell no. Irish and Welsh who were virtually slaves of the English are in my line, and the ancestors who fought in the Civil War fought for the Union. I don't owe the what, 7th? 8th? 9th? -whatever generation a GD thing.

    If they ever try to make it real every taxpayer in American should tell them to go pound sand.

    Let's turn this conversation around and start a discussion about how each taxpayer who is not for open borders can claim an illegal alien as a dependent on our tax returns. The liberals who support open borders are not eligible for this deduction.

    I could get on board with that idea. Sounds good to me. Mexico is a block and a half from my house.

    Whenever libs say those magic words "we need to have a conversation", all it really means is this is the way we're gonna do it. Similar to a disagreement in a relationship. See also: liberals calling something "problematic".
