If you’re one of the very few people that is even thinking about moving to California, and you’re looking into moving to the “city by the bay”, you probably would want to have second or third thoughts. The homeless problem is running rampant. There is a drug problem of epic proportions there, where junkies are shooting up on the streets. Flash mobs show up at the shopping malls to smash windows and grab whatever they can. What used to be a tourist mecca, is now turning into a ghost town as businesses flock to leave the area.
But there appears to be a silver lining in all of this.
If you’re black, or if you identify with black (it IS a thing with liberals after all), the city of San Francisco wants to pay you reparations. They are going to start you out with a check for $5 million. Then you are going to receive a $97,000 salary for 250 years (are you going to live that long?) Next you’re going to get your debt wiped out. Not just student loan debt, everything. Credit cards, mortgages, car loans, everything. But as Ron Popiel used to say, “but wait…there’s more!”, you’re also going to get a house for $1! And the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is on board with this!
The only thing they haven’t discussed yet is how they are going to pay for it.
Some quick math shows that it is going to cost the average citizen about $600,000 to give those reparations. And that’s today, before the Hispanics and whites, and those not associated with being African American bail and leave the city so they don’t have to pay. Oh. Did I mention that California NEVER housed slaves? It was illegal there. Always has been.
I think that unless some common sense prevails, this is going to sink the Golden State once and for all. You know they’ve tried universal income. They’ve tried banning the sale of gas powered vehicles. They’ve tried a lot of really wacked out things. But this one, this one could very well sink the entire state. Nobody has come up with a plan that is going to check to see if you are indeed black, or if you indeed have relatives in your past that were slaves.
And what about people like Kamala Harris? She is black. AND her family owned slaves. How does it work with her?
This is such a lame-brain idea that if there are any liberals left in Cali after this hits the fan, it shows what total incompetence there is in that state. And people can’t understand why I live just two hours east of that state and refuse to travel there? Are they kidding?
Any one of the items that I mentioned above would be more than welcome as reparations to pretty much anyone in that community. The draft version of this showed, are you ready for this? One Hundred Eleven items to be considered in the proposal. Talk about dreaming for the mansion on the hill with the kitchen sink installed!
Look, I tell people that I really don’t care about color so much, and that’s true. I look beyond looks to what’s in the soul. Are you a good person or a bad person. If you’re good, I could care if you’re black, white, red, yellow, green or blue. If you’re bad, the same thing applies. And you can’t throw the “white supremacy” thing at me when it comes to slavery either. My family wasn’t even here back in the 1800’s. And we’ve never owned slaves anywhere we did live. Trust me… I have checked. So, I’m going to pass if reparations ever become a reality. If I’m guilty, throw the book at me. But like the student loan crap that Joe Biden throws out, don’t make me pay for other people’s mistakes. I wasn’t around then. Neither were the people that are going to be getting the reparations if they actually come to fruition. Neither one of us are owed anything. This isn’t like the Japanese that were put in concentration camps during World War II. They were the ones that got the money, not their great-great-great-great grandchildren!
It’s one of the most idiotic ideas to ever be floated in this country. Yes, whites have treated blacks poorly for a very long time. But you don’t make the innocent pay along with the guilty. And trying to figure out which is which is something that should have been done 160 years ago. It’s a little late now, sorry!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
