Native Americans

    @Mr:

    Can they set aside land in Ireland so my friends and I can set up a feudal society?

    Actually, that sounds like fun!

    can i be the smith cum doctor?



  • “No way, set up land so they can hunt a endangered species???”

    Hmmm… I wonder why the buffalo became endangered species in the first place? Could it be those evil NAs hunting down the buffalo to near extinction like crazy? Also from what I heard, the buffalo population (though nowhere the size of what it use to be) has grown quite a lot, especially with the domestication of the buffalo (just look at Ted Turner and his Buffalo farms).

    “Can they set aside land in Ireland so my friends and I can set up a feudal society?”

    Sure if your friends own the land, I don’t see why not. Anyways, I doubt what I said above will be set in stone. Honestly, I haven’t factored in the possible consequences,which must always be taken in accountability (exactly how much land being a big question). But it seems like the only thing a lot of NA’s will accept short of reclaiming ALL of their land back.

    It doesnt really matter who endangered the buffalo, the point being these NA wanting a way of life back that none alive today ever experienced.
    Its not even close to a practical solution.
    To entertain that as a option is just plain dumb. No offence, I mean it as a general statement.

    If NA want their land and way of life back, which is unreasonable in today’s world, let them come and take it.



  • “To entertain that as a option is just plain dumb. No offence, I mean it as a general statement.”

    Well this is merely a suggestion. But something definitely has to be done about the present situation. I’m sure we can all agree on this.

    “If NA want their land and way of life back, which is unreasonable in today’s world, let them come and take it.”

    I’m sure even the NA are “civilized” enough to know already that their territorial boundaries won’t be recognized through war.



  • @cystic:

    can i be the smith cum doctor?

    Yes, as long as I get to be the King (Yanny can be the court jester)

    What is a smith cum doctor?

    basically i want to try my hand at making stuff (a smithy) with a sideline job as the doctor.
    Being king might be kind of cool, but i want to work with my hands and my mind and not just tax and judge and wage war on people.

  • If I could have any job, it would be the Pope.



  • @TG:

    They should just give the buffalo to the diehard NA’s (and there are quite a few of them; otherwise we wouldn’t probably be having this discussion) to hunt and some of the government owned land (which still owns about 25% of all American soil) for them to hunt on.

    Come on, we sort of do this for the Eskimos in terms of whaling

    They buy their food, alcohol, and tobacco in stores. They don’t want to hunt anymore!

    But give them some better land to farm on!

    No, too much killing involved!

    The “white man” and a couple of black guys too hunted the Buffalo to extinction. And they are not endangered. There is 250,000 of them. Three alone in Zoo America! They are the heaviest natural animal of north america.

    man that looks so boring.
    i think i’d be a travel guide writer . . . kind of like Ford Prefect in Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy . . . i always thought that might be fun if you didn’t get stranded.



  • Nye, the Pope works harder then anybody (you know with all the daily religious rituals and the like). How old is he again?



  • I dunno, the Pope has something going there with his own country and all his fancy clothes….



  • Plus if you just want a relaxing evening alone, you can just send in all those Cardinals to do all the hard work. 😉



  • no…be a bacteria…you don’t care if you die!
