    How can native Americans really complain. During the initial expansion of western Europe to the America’s the native American culture did not contain the concept of land ownership. So how can they complain about something being taken away if they didn’t think it was theirs in the first place.

    Now I know that is a horribly wrong sentiment, but it is a thought to ponder.

    Of course, the US doesn’t have an official language (or religion).

    I think they’re more upset at how the land was taken from them: Smallpox infected blankets. Probably the largest act of genocide ever.

    They did have the concept of land ownership as members of other tribes often found out when they trespassed in their territories.

    Garbage. This factiod is based on a single letter by one colonial governor and there is NO evidence that he ever tried it. European diseases were a big factor, but they spread without any help once the Spanish hit the continental shores.

    Infected blankets? Must have been the same people who faked the moon landing in a big hangar

    Because they lived on that land. No one could move them off to gulags, I mean reservations, to live or die at the hands of “the whites.”

    When the white man gave the Indians smallpox, it taught us who the real savages were.

    Sorry Babs. The rules are set by the conquerors not the conquered.

    Actually, it should be the word ‘irony’ in the Wampanoag language, spoken in the region the Pilgrims landed, but we wiped them out two hundred years ago and more. So sorry.

    Stromoski is funnier when he doesn’t get into politically correct crap. Just stick to the humor of the Nutz family!
