So the House officially apologized for slavery. Hella late and worth getting on the record. I’d also add that it took a Democratic House to do it. But one anonymous wingnut coward (unless his name really is Gordon Gekko) continues to equate his getting taxed with the slavery years in the United States. The illogic being that since he works and has money “taken away” from him in the form of taxes, this is the same as being shackled and working in the fields at the masters plantation:
When is the House going to apologize to me for stealing my money and giving it to Sam Donaldson under the guise of mohair subsidies?
I’d hate to have such a skewed view of my country and community and the investments I make in it.
