The celebration of a Wop subcontractor blundering into Central America with a 500 year old Norwegian map, with financing from the Spanish Crown ...has always escaped me.
Also, I have very little sympathy for the American Indian (or Latino, or African, or Jew) since they have repeatedly chosen to cast their lot with the Democratic Party...exchanging their pride, self sufficiency, self respect in exchange for free stuff. Before the great Indian welfare state began, I worked the logging industry for years with Indian co-workers, great workers, good men, good friends. Giveaways have destroyed that maybe forever. Welfare in it's various forms killed far more Indians than the US Army ever did.
