40 acres and a mule

(Before It's News)

Yup, that was the promise held out for the black folks who signed up for Abe's war on the Slave States.

It was only much later that those black folks realized that was all hokum…

They had another hundred years to go just to sit at the same lunch counter as their betters!

The forty acres and a mule part was pretty much forgot…

But I've got a chance at forty acres right outside the Guelph town line! The mule I can always pick up later.

This is a property that once belonged to the Hassan family. Good local farming folks. They used to provide pasturage to a herd run by the Toronto Reichmann family. But they got into serious shit with the Reichmann folks, because apparently a Hassan bull was humping all the Reichmann cows and the ensuing calves did not have the appropriate pedigree.

Or something… anyway, lots of lawyers got Muskoka summer homes out of that quibble…

So I'm eye-balling this Hassan place, which is on the market for a mere $900k…

Hey Dad, why don't you do something nice for me before you go to that big refugee camp in the sky?…
