Image result for dems want reparationsMembers 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.

Back on board, the reCAPUTAR screen had me blown away I had no idea what it was. I wish TPCC would have warned us.
Yes Marilyn, I don't believe well ever see that level of Liberty again. As 12 or 13 yo boy I would walk 4 blocks west out of city, lived on edge of town with my .410 single shot shotgun across the golf course and into the woods to hunt squirrel (tree rats) and when finished return trip with gun over shoulder was never bothered by Police. Yea times have changed. 11 firearms instructor certification and several concealed carry permits but still have trouble paying to exercise a constitutional right. Would love to see federal reciprocity and constitutional Carry. And Democrats think their fight for freedom? Freedom to rob the treasury.

Oh YEAH !!!!  I forgot about all of those NICE Things ~~!!!!!!

Marilyn, 2 days ago answer to your post was interrupted by the reCAPTUA. I forgot where we were. Yes, the values didn't make alot of sense to bunch young children fifty or sixty years ago. We have lost so much and they were important. My father taught me to shoot around 5 or 6 hinting around 10 and unsupervised around 12. The adult some at the dinner table and you better not open your mouth unless you were eating, you spoke at the table if you were asked to say Grace or you were directed into conversation. Father was quiet but stern and we miss father and mother so much. You mentioned community spirit, remember the PTA and how envolved parents were in school activities monitors and speaking up in those meetings concerning what they wanted taught to their children. They may not have designed curriculum but they did make an impact, the board of education knew they were being watched. Every neighborhood had fountain shop for nice cream and soft drink from fountains. Yes those days are gone, but we carry them in our memories.
Thank you Patriot.

Here is a lyric given to me years ago... while musing on past events... thought you may like it:

I Remember…

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?

Thank you Cl., Loved every word. It does take you back to a time where people did slow down to enjoy their families, friends and patriots. The division is so large within our people today. I will serve my God and his word will direct me in the course where I will take my stand. Lines are being drawn in the sand by men and women that love this great nation given by a Holy God in a covenant. Pray for Shalom Blessings.

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.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
