The odds of a default are long, explains Mad Money host Jim Cramer. He digs into a few media companies that have faith in their business plan, and are buying back their stocks.
The Point: There isn't even a way to determine who should get reparations. There were free blacks, and blacks that held slaves, and I imagine some slave holders gave something when they freed their slaves; it isn't the responsibility of the US to pay reparations, it was the US that won the Civil War that freed the slaves. If the south had won, they should pay reparations; but making the entire country, many whom have come to the US after the civil war; this whole subject is a non starter. Anyway giving money to dead beats, drug dealers, criminals, prostitutes, murderers, gang members, is nothing short of extortion and rewarding being foolish.
