Come on, guys, you’re gonna make the native American cry.

January 23rd, 2009

Revelers left more than 100 tons of trash just sitting on the ground in Washington, viagra buy viagra D.C. after President Obama’s inauguration.

I’m sorry, sildenafil prostate that’s just not acceptable. Especially for a party that champions environmental causes.

(And please don’t use the excuse that there weren’t enough trash receptacles. If there aren’t enough receptacles you TAKE THE TRASH WITH YOU!)

    I never really understood why we cared about a Native American crying over our garbage anyway. We stole his land from him, killed his people, and then marched them off to new crappy areas, and still can’t keep our hands off them. You’d think THAT would be enough to make him cry.

    But no… let’s make sure he’s not upset about LITTER.

    ;)

    And they could have at least used a real Amerindian, instead of someone whose parents were both immigrants from Sicily.

    “We stole his land from him, killed his people, and then marched them off to new crappy areas, and still can’t keep our hands off them.You’d think THAT would be enough to make him cry.”

    What? “We” sure didn’t steal “his” land or kill “his” people or anything of the sort. A bunch of people none of us ever knew did that stuff to a bunch of other people that none of us ever knew. Certianly no point in crying over that.

    Also, as Bob G noted, he’s Sicilian.

    So, that makes it OK. Plus, you need to remember that in the grand scheme of things, this didn’t happen all that long ago. I have ancestors I can trace back to the time “no one ever knew”.

    No, that doesn’t make it okay. But it does make it history. We should learn from it but not dwell on it. The fact of the matter is that your ancestors that you never knew don’t really mean crap as far as determining who you are. Pain inflicted on them centuries ago doesn’t hurt you one iota.

    To quote a wise man, Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

    “I just can’t take all this mamby-pamby boo-hooing about the bloody Indians. You won. All right? You came in and you killed them and you took their land. That’s what conquering nations do. It’s what Caesar did, and he’s not goin’ around saying, “I came, I conquered, I felt really bad about it.” The history of the world is not people making friends. You had better weapons, and you massacred them. End of story.”

    Well, if you’re going to quote a TV show to help make your argument, I guess I have no chance to make any reasonable response.

    I bow to your superior ability to turn to pop culture for enlightenment.

    I think it is a conservative conspiracy. Sarah Palin hired a bunch of right wingnuts of go down to Washington and spread trash around.

    jimi,
    The first paragraph wasn’t a tv show quotation. I just added that doe shits and giggles. I didn’t expect you to come up with a reasoned response anyway though, so it’s cool.

  • 9. BobG  |  January 24th, 2009 at 3:01 pm

    Hell, the Europeans did the same thing to the Indians that they were already doing to each other, the Europeans were just better at it. I feel no guilt about it. That would be like modern day Englishmen feeling guilt about stealing England from the Welsh.

  • 10. Vinny  |  January 24th, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    You don’t need to feel any guilt about it Bob. On the other hand, the next time you start complaining about socialism and redistribution of wealth, you might reflect upon the extent to which this country is founded on government taking property from one group of people and giving it to someone else.

  • 11. jimi  |  January 24th, 2009 at 9:25 pm

    Well, you said it. Shits and giggles.

  • 12. Elliot  |  January 26th, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    Come on, Vinny, a lot of that redistribution was done by individuals with no government assistance. Credit where credit is due.
    ;)

    I am not sure you are right Elliot. Do you really think that there were many times that the Indians abandoned their lands to American settlers absent the threat of military force?
