The reparations bug infests the Caribbean
Inexplicably unable to make money on tourism, rum, and ganja, 14 Caribbean nations are planning to sue Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Denmark for reparations for their respective roles in the slave trade 150 years ago.
Heh heh, seriously?
Neither Florida or Hawaii have anything more to offer the rest of the world than tourism and fruit, and they're flush with money. What's wrong with the Caribbean that they can't be successful with all that, plus drugs? Government corruption, rampant laziness, and the apparent lack of competent barbers seems to be a common theme down there.
I don't know how much they want, but I'm sure the formerly great Britain will surely be the first to cave and cough up some cash.
