  1. There’s an easy answer to this problem: forced sterilization of the state’s Senate Republicans who are against any compensation to the victims of the original atrocity. Public castration ought to send a subtle message to them.

  2. I hate the way our government says it is sorry not only after the fact, but when it is absolutely too late to repair damages. I mean, think of your own kids or loved ones. Are they worth a mere half million. How can you put a price on human life, espcially when that life represents another person’s future?

  3. Libs were the ones endorsing sterilizations! Just saying. Lol. What good is 100 billion dollars when your life is almost over because you are old and your children were taken away from you before you even had a chance to make them and enjoy them. I can kinda see his point, but they should be reembersed.

  4. I wonder how the Senator who said that you shouldn’t compensate people for past history would feel if we in Germany used that line regarding holocaust victims and forced labor victims…I never thought I’d hear something like that from US politicians…

  6. It’s an awful analogy. Being blind impairs you in a lot of ways. There are many things that you can’t do when you can’t see, like ANYTHING that requires vision to do. There is nothing you can do to make money when you have kids that you can’t do without kids, apart from maybe entering your kids into beauty contests, or selling them into slavery, but I believe that shouldn’t be done anyway.

  7. Republicans are religious enough to condone bombing Abortion Clinics yet don’t give a crap about people being forcibly sterilised? Hypocrites!

  8. Revelation:

    If your ancestors were a slave in America, your income is nearly double that of your cousins who remained free in Africa.

    Allow me to elaborate. Slavery is a crime against humanity. However, when you hear minorities demand reparations aka affirmative action, do you often hear about how much better their lives are now than the lives of their cousins who remained in Africa?

    No status offers greater opportunity to every ethnicity than American Citizenship. So shut the fuck up.

  9. well lets look at this another way. techinally you don’t need to see to work. now what if instead of sterilized you became blind. Now what money are you loosing for not being able to see anymore? You can hear walk talk etc. So do you then need finacial compensation for that? I understand it’s not the same thing, but that’s the best example I can come up with.

  10. That’s the thing, though. Why do you get financial compensation because you can’t have kids? What money do you lose not having kids?

  12. Impeaching Obama is simple. And it would slow his roll to reelection. He is not upholding the law by disregarding immigration laws meant to protect our country. Do it now!!! Running out of time if you want Romney to win.
