Native Wisdom

Dear Reader,

Since Glynsky posted one of those the young are stupid pieces here, I thought to throw in a piece of wisdom:

Where white man went wrong

Indian Chief “Two Eagles” was asked by a white U.S. government official:

‘You have observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen his wars and his technological advances. You’ve seen his progress, and the damage he’s done.’

The Chief nodded in agreement. The officiai continued:

‘Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?’

The Chief stared at the government official then replied:

‘When white man find land, Indians running it.

No taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water.

Women did all the work, Medicine men free.

Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing, all night having sex.’

Then the chief leaned back and smiled.

‘Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.’


Back to hunting,

    1. Yep – sounds like the life to me!

      A man is walking along a beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish.

      The man thinks for a moment and says, “I want to live forever.”

      “Sorry,” said the genie, “I’m not allowed to grant eternal life.”

      “OK, then, I want to die after a Labour government balances the budget and eliminates the debt.

      “You crafty little bastard,” said the genie.

      1. AFAIK, the “responsible conservatives” have run up higher debts,
        in the USA and the UK, than any progressive/left/labor governments

        Clinton left behind a balanced budget, or surplus.
        (Much of it by luck).


        1. You are joking? Labour left this country in a right ole pickle and they always have, since the bigging of the 20th century. The same ole scenario prevails, labour mess up and the conservatives pick up the peices and get us back on track, then people forget put the bastards in again and here we go!
          No idea about the US situation, but I imagine it’s just the same. Anyway, whatever happens here will be a coelition again, just prey it’s not Labout – SNP.
