Re: NFC: RE: Auctions OT ?

Being part native American myself (I have to many friends from India to call
myself  "part Indian") I kinda find the whole idea that native Americans
were at peace and unity with the land to be quite funny. My ancestors
(Cherokee) used to burn thousands, and thousands of acres of forest just to
clear land and scare up game. Of course real NA's don't propagate that myth,
nor are any of them all that upset with the "Washington Redskins",
"Cleveland Indians", or "Atlanta Braves". That myth like most other "Indian"
myths is part of the liberal agenda being propagated by stupid people with
way to much time on their hands. I was hunting once in my native Maryland
when I was assaulted by a bunch of idiot college kids (who were very
stupidly dressed for being out in a hunting area) who were saying that I was
destroying the environment by hunting. Come one sportsman and
environmentalists should be allies not enemies. We want the same things
after all don't we?

very proud to be just a little bit Cherokee but even more proud to be over
half Irish!
