I'm not stupid enough to join given the current leaders in charge and I'm too old anyway.

Mom is deceased you p o s.

The "leaders" of this country and the unfortunate troops they use as cannon fodder are only affording us the opportunity to be a target.

Bottom line is winners get to write the history. That's one reason to kill all of the witnesses.
Name a lousy regime we didn't put in power, then oust later on down the road.

If they empty our prison for any reason, I hope the government mows them down, too, so we in our houses don't have to.

If everyone would discuss as stupid as you then I would be really concerned about the USA. You are exactly that arrogant and silly American we hate in the world. Guys like you should better shut up as obviously you do not have brains or at leased you do not use it!

Not bad. It only took to the second post for someone to try to turn the thread into a left/right bash.
Very good. Keep up the good work.

This is EXACTLY what the politicians and people in power want and support. If we fight amongst ourselves like fools, it increases their ability to get away with whatever they want to do.

Whats bad about that? it saved a million American Solders life's.Those Japs would not give up.Remember that? The reverse is also true.It also saved a lot japs ,who would not have been around ,some till Today.
The Indians,yes I agree .it was a sad solution.
They ,thee Indians got caught up in the French and Indian war.Also know as the 7 years war.Indians chose sides.French,and British used them.They did the real horrendous massacres of the innocents.Their type of warfare ,chilled even the heartiest of solderers then.Indians became a symbol of barbarism!It followed them for a long time.
It was Pres. George Washington who sent Gen. Sullivan to stop the massacres by Indians in NYS.Enough was enough!
In the plains,and the West, it was "GOLD',and the railroad.sadly in a short 10yrs or so,the Indian way of life was gone.Buffalo too.
But now they own casinos,making money..hey what are you going to do,carry guilt for things that you had no control over? what did you think the pioneers were gonna do? pack up and go back to where they come from? Where would you be today?
So get real. Its easy to point fingers,altho your comparisons are really in error.
We are talking currant events.History well, its an't over till its over!
Bean you are a fucking retard, the Natives were called barbarians because it suited the government at the time to villanize them so they could take their land from them. In the beginning, without native americans helping white people live off the land and develop colonies, they would have died when they arrived. Also, the treachery of White people were revealed as early as the pilgrim days.....Thanksgiving anyone? Native americans celebrate it as the GREAT BETRAYAL.
