    A BMI works.  Universal rights and entitlements work.

    Barack Obama gets money he desperately needs for cocaine, cigarettes and alcohol at his Martha’s Vineyard mansion. You pay for it. Hope this answers your question.

    Well it hasn't actually become a thing, so that's kind of hard to actually say since those details haven't had reason to be worked out, right?

    ---------

    Imo... Personally, if it happened, it needs to be based on records, such as the census and others, that document a family's claim to it and do it as back payment for the free labor done by their great grandparents, or which ever direct grandparents it was. I think back pay at least fairly makes sense, though it may end up divided among direct family decedents enough that in some cases it might not be the windfall people hope for.

    right wingers, whose ancestors owned slaves and who committed treason by starting the civil war, wanting to keep slavery legal,

    would have to compensate descendants of slaves who have been held back by racists.  The financial amount would vary.

    It may be as simple as, if you're registered as a republican you get less back on your tax return

    People who were never slaves steal money from people who were never slave owners. Get the picture?

    Don't worry about them, Mexico is paying for them and the wall.

    There is not enough support for something like that to pass.

    No major candidate for president has proposed them. Ryde.On and idiots like him mention them far more than anyone else. Just another Trump supporter LIE because that is all those idiots do, lie.
