    lolololololol ! Cute.
    Dude, I’m from across the Atlantic, south east of you, and I was subjected to an incredible distortioned, Eurocentric history but you take the cake with that whopper! :-D

    Native Americans showed the pilgrims how to grow food; that’s why they survived: neighbourly support. Bloody socialists, those Native Americans; no wonder they were wiped out. Just too bloody love- your-neighbourly they were!
    I’m no expert but they had a compact in order that the pilgrims & non-pilgrims co-operated with each other. Their charter, allowing them to start a settlement, came from their …hmm, here I’m not sure, their king at the time?

    L-I-A-R !
    ‘nd they didn’t teach this in schoo. ’
    Well, no, because it was too much of a whopper, even for Eurocentric nutters. You were home-schooled, weren’t you?
    ‘Go google it.’
    I didn’t but I had read a book by James Loewen called “Lies my teacher told me”. You ought to read it some time.

    Did Ms. Hale run the union also?

    In 1827, Mrs. Sarah Joseph Hale began lobbying several Presidents for the proclamation of Thanksgiving as a national holiday. It didn’t see success until 1863 when Abraham Lincoln finally made it a national holiday with his 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation.

    They came from Europe, and were too dumb to see the bounty that surrounded them in those early years. At Jamestown, they starved to death and disappeared. At Plymouth, some adopted the wisdom of the “natives” and survived. BTW, the Iroquois Confederacy taught them about sharing the labor, and the rewards, and enough governance to found the Articles of Confederation, and the later Constitution.


    Yes, Ima, there WAS a “Santa Claus”, and just like today, those most concerned about profit above people, shot him.

    Without the Wompanaugs and the other Native American nations the European settlers would have been wiped out. In retrospect they probably would have lasted longer and maybe banned together and had more power here if they did. But they weren’t all barbarians and pirates unlike the many who came to their land.

    You’ve gotta be kidding. The Plymouth Brethren point out that even today they reject this silly, simplistic view of the situation around Massachusetts Bay.

    Silly to think that socialists have a monopoly on neighborly support.It’s not love of neighbor that leads a government to steal from one group of saving citizens to give to another group of spending citizens. You’re from across the Atlantic though, I guess you’ve not noticed that taking property from individuals is stealing … wonder when that was abandoned.

    @ansonia

    Ah, silly! My POINT was that even schoolchildren know the history that the Pilgrims were saved by the Indians from starvation. Not some made up Limbaugh post-revisionist crap. You aren’t any better, checkout your own posts, or is humility not one of your strong suits?
