  1. Land was the original promise so land should be part of the deal. First for the funding of this project, begin by selling off central park and other urban park spaces. They have the greatest land value of publicly owned land that is currently unoccupied. As urban voters are, no doubt, the ones who most strongly support reparations, I'm sure they won't object. I would also be in favor of using all or some of the revenue generated by those awful express toll lanes, made to exclude the poor. This is really the only way of redeeming these horrible things. Now that we've found some money, it's time to start handing out land. 40 acres isn't going to happen with the current population size, but that doesn't mean there isn't land available. Much of middle America is empty space. Use the money raised via the previously mentioned plan, to purchase land in sparsely populated sections of the US where the dollar goes the furthest. Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas, New Mexico, Idaho, and Nebraska have the lowest population densities. Start buying that land, I'm sure current residents will appreciate the bump in land value and small towns definitely need an influx of new people and economic activity. You're welcome America.

    I was think the same thing. I need to see a picture of this kayak.
  3. I consider reparations of any meaningful sum being paid directly to individuals being extremely unlikely. If by some miracle it did manage to gain enough support to have a real chance, people would howl at the moon over every detail of this. On both sides. The closer it moved to an actual cash pay out the angrier both sides would become. If it passed some would argue it was too little, others too much, and everyone would be furious that their favorite budget items were drastically cut. Lawyers would benefit though. That much is certain.

    Raptors shot 36.9% from the field, on the road, and won. Mostly because they got to the line 31 times and hit 12 more free throws than the Bucks. Bucks offense was bad tonight and they lost their composure on defense.

    Middleton takes a turn around three with 16 seconds left off of a timeout? The bucks have made a lowlight reel in the end of this one.

    Brogdon knocked theball out of his own hands with his leg, then watched it roll out of bounds with his hands up. That’s an ugly play at a crucial moment. Middleton is an allstar now, his game tonight was bad. He can’t just stop shooting when he misses early. It messes the Bucks spacing up badly.

  9. They really allow Mein Kampf in prison? Radicalization in prison is hardly a new concept we’re only just learning about. If I ran a prison I would probably want to ban everything that pushed radical political agendas, promoted racism, or argued that the world was somehow to blame for inmates winding up in prison. I would also seek to treat inmates a hell of a lot better, because I don’t think you can prepare people to turn their lives around and thrive in a free world by treating them like animals. I also wonder what effect there is to prison guards if their job revolves almost entirely around negative interactions intended to keep prisoners in line. I doubt it makes them friendlier people. Needless to say, I would never be allowed to run a prison.

    Bucks and Raptors are evenly matched, but Toronto has the personnel to slow Giannis. Can they continue to do that and have their role players show up on the road? That’s the series. I think the bucks have the best chance against the Warriors because they lack bigs to stop Giannis. I’m saying best chance, not good chance. Warriors will win. Toronto needs Siakam to be good and I think Draymond can stop him. If he can they can do that, they will outscore Kawhi and Lowry relatively easily. They’ll sweep the raptors.

    Bucks look like they’re losing this one. They have looked bad in Toronto.

    Giannis is the opposite of Steph Curry. Curry forces the defense to spread out to absurd lengths picking him up at half court. Giannis simply by dribbling the ball has defenders lined up in the paint like soccer defenders forming a wall against a free kick. Would defenders brains seize up and reboot if they were on the same team?

    The problem is that the contract leaves the wizards in limbo for four seasons. No franchise wants that. Especially now that lottery picks are as uncertain as ever.
