The System Doesn’t Forgive You. Why Would You Forgive It?

If you screw up, the penalties are draconian. So why are you so eager to forgive hardass politicians who would never give you a break?

  • Ain’t that the truth. Voters are so stupid.

  • Let those who believe in slavery be slaves.

    Let those who believe in freedom be free.

    Let those who visit sorrow on others have sorrows visited on themselves.

    Let those without mercy be denied mercy themselves.

  • Kamala Harris promises 100 billion dollars to Blacks for housing.

    She is a psychopath who will say and do absolutely anything to win. Except keep her promises.

    Just like Obama.

    Just like her prosecution of innocent Black men on bad evidence.

    That 100 billion might be close to the magnitude of Black family housing loses lost to robo-signed foreclosures under the Obama administration.

      “Kamala Harris promises 100 billion dollars to Blacks for housing.”

      And why do I picture her, drinking a scotch, smoking a cigar, and saying, “Yup. $100 billion. Build a whole lot of projects, shove the poor blacks and the poor Hispanics in there just like in the 1960s, lots of kickbacks to the right people … everything stays the same, the right people get a payday, and I get more power. A win-win.”

    The part I find really terrifying? Say you get arrested. You haven’t been found guilty of ANYTHING (yet).
    You can lose your job the next day. If you’re a student, you can be bounced out of campus housing. You can be kicked off campus. You can lose a scholarship, your GPA can be ruined, you can be blackballed from applying to any other university, etc.
    During a background check (I think), arrests are reported. Again, for a lot of HR departments, that you were found NOT guilty, is completely irrelevant. “Oh look, it’s a way to thin the crowd of applicants!”
    Imagine it though: You get arrested, you lose your job, the case gets dismissed or you get found not guilty, you can’t get your old job back, and then you can’t find a new one.
    Sometimes I wonder why more people who’ve been through that sort of a meatgrinder DON’T go nuts with a gun. I mean, what do they possibly have to hold them back? Optimism? The “Everything Is Awesome” song from the Lego Movie?
