    I had been hearing a little bit lately about Barack Obama being a big advocate for reparations to blacks for slavery. I looked it up a little bit, and there seems to be agreement that he is a "pusher" of reparations for blacks whose ancestors were slaves. The link I'm posting suggests that the campaign (for reparations) and supports are pushing for 777 trillion in reparations.

    Obama and the Drive for Slavery Reparations

    My opinion: Let's make millions of people (who have never owned slaves) pay trillions of dollars to millions of other people who have never been slaves....:cuckoo:

    lol @ 777 trillion.

    There are nowhere near that many dollars in existence. They might as well have asked for a million-billion-gazillion dollars.
