Congress Continues to Surprise

Its nice to know that with all the pressing issues going on in the world and here at home that we have the United States Congress. While we should be concerned with taking care of issues like immigration, gas prices, foreign dependency, terrorism, and a handful of other important issue, we instead have Congress coming together to apologize for slavery. THANK GOD FOR THAT.

Ok enough sarcasm. What the hell are they thinking. Should we honestly be worrying about something so unimportant? Or should we continue to support the politically correctness that is tearing this country apart? It blows me away to think that they are still caught up on this slavery thing and the whole "Jim Crow" bullcrap. Yea we know it was horrible, but guess what, it was abolished for a reason.

Its not enough that several states already apologized for this very thing, but no it needs to be done on a federal level to show how serious they are about it. Nothing else is as important as making them feel better about something that happened over 50 years ago. Congress not only apologized, but they also committed itself to stopping "the occurrence of human rights violations in the future." And I'm curious what they are going to do to back that up.

Just wait until they start handing out reparations for slavery to all the people who weren't actually slaves. Then who will pay for that? The people who weren't even involved in the ownership of slaves, that's who.

America just keeps getting better and better WOOOOHOOOO.

House apologizes for slavery, 'Jim Crow' injustices.
