Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and other Democrats this week re-introduced legislation that would set up a commission to consider whether reparations should be paid to black Americans for slavery.
Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has proposed the bill in each Congress for at least the last two decades.
A description of the bill said the legislation would set up a commission to both examine the possibility of reparations, but also an apology for the "racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans."
It's a response to the "fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States."
Well said Philip...
Awesome Phil. I think it's so sad, that no matter how much Trump will be able to accomplish, that future generations will NEVER be able to experience what we have when we were younger----walking our neighborhoods without fear, not having to put bars on windows and doors, "stranger-danger". And I find it really difficult to even explain or describe how different it was when we were kids: minding your parents/teachers, if the mom next door scolded you...you better act as if that was your mom speaking, you had chores and EARNED your allowance, elderly people walked into a room--you got your butt off the chair and offered it to them. Respect, courtesy, community unity and service.............have practically disappeared.
Oh YEAH !!!! I forgot about all of those NICE Things ~~!!!!!!
Here is a lyric given to me years ago... while musing on past events... thought you may like it:
I remember cold springs, and warm hearts. Days romping in fields, memories of cowboys and Indians… Ball parks and sunny benches. Melted Ice cream and dirty faces.
I remember… the white steeple of the Church… calling too worship… the sound of the choir, singing… Amazing Grace… of seeing my sister there in… lace. My bothers face… pierced thru, with His glory and grace.
I remember… better times and long days. Gardens blooming and children smiling… Mothers, waiving… come home, sweet home. The smell of apple pie… and the cry of children… on every corner.
I remember… Dad’s rough hands, his course, ways… and more… his loving gaze. I remember, so many wondrous things… I can only say… It was God’s glory… that always made my… day.
How about yours?

There is yet hope in the land... a remnant of God's people remain loyal to God's Word and our founders vision for America. Pray, that the Holy Spirit moves in our midst of the faithful, that America may be restored by God's Grace... too, embrace our founder's vision...
America is a Shinning City set upon a Hill... whose light once burned so brightly... that all men were drawn to her shores in search of they mystery of her glory... CHRIST and the promised land. America's greatest gift to the world, her most precious promise, for mankind, remains her relationship with God.... in Christ.
We are a peculiar people... a royal priesthood, an holy nation set aside for the purpose of worshiping and honoring God... Our founding father's left the old world, crossed the great sea... to inhabit the promised land... it now falls to us too preserve that calling and purpose.
However, America has presently abandoned her purpose and must return... or she will be forever lost, in the wilderness of Sin. Israel, out of unbelief wondered aimlessly, for 40yrs in the land of Sin, after being delivered out of Egypt (the world)....
Think on that for a while...
Just finished watching our "PREZ" Deliver his Speech to CONGRESS !!!! HE HIT ANOTHER HOME RUN !!!!!!!! Hahahaaha !!!!!! The DEMO/NISTS were of course completely KNOCKED SILLY by his words and how he "CHOREOGRAPHED" the entire venue !!!!! The next time anyone mentions "The Party of "NO" ,it will mean the DEMOCRATS not the REPUBLICANS !!!!! They couldn't even applaud the President's call for supporting the Law Enforcement, or when he mentioned "Our CREATOR", or anything that was even CLOSE to being an AMERICAN LOVING Subject like our FLAG!!!!! They PROVED THEMSELVES before the WORLD that they are ANTI-AMERICAN and at the worst are COMMUNISTS !!!! I thought Nancy PELOSI was going to "TWITCH HERSELF" to death !!!! She was so upset with his speech, it looked like she was going to have a seizure !!!!!! The same for POCOHONTAS !!!!!
Their butts were practically super-glued to their seats the entire time. A couple of times they FINALLY got off their asses and applauded. There was NOTHING in his speech tonight that every patriot, every American couldn't get behind. And did you see at the end, the moment his speech concluded, the dems couldn't pop out of their seats fast enough in the mad rush for the door.....I presume to forego having to shake hands with ANYbody, particularly OUR/MY President.
