Chief Wild Eagle: This funny country, once only buffalo live here, Indian come, then paleface come, now paleface give $300 for land Indian take away from buffalo…could only happen in America.
F Troop Iron Horse Go Home 1965
I’ve been very busy with the new Syndicated Radio show so I haven’t had a lot of time to finish the excellent book my son gave me for Christmas Ships of Oak Guns of Iron on the War of 1812. The book jumps from land to see (the land war is often ignored In the 275 pages that I’ve finished as the chapters jump from land to sea there was a note concerning the Creek Indian Wars that leaped off the page 261:
The southern tribes were incurring burdensome trade debts with the United States in exchange for manufactured goods and foods and land concessions had become a common mechanism to extinguish the debt.
And that’s when it hit
Every day the Federal government, states and cities seize land from individuals and corporations for unpaid taxes, illegal activities etc etc etc.
All we have to do is, at fair market value, cede said land on the federal, state and city level to the recognized tribe whose lands at the time of the foundation of the nation were closest to the said land while the tribes assume a portion of the city, state or federal debt equal to the value of the land ceded.
In every public school our liberal friends inform our children how HORRIBLE we are, how America is built on land stolen from the American Indian, well under this plan the American Indian can get their land back piece by piece while retiring debts that our government can’t hope to repay otherwise.
Here’s the big chance for Barack Obama, Andrew Cuomo, Pat Quinn, Jerry Brown and Martin O’Malley to not only get their fiscal houses in order but to strike a blow for justice for the American Indian.
And for American Indians, here is a chance to get back the land of your ancestors and prove that you can certainly do better with it than a bunch of Europeans or even better to eschew all that nasty non-stone age technology and mechanics those interlopers brought with them and get back get back to nature with no carbon footprint for the eye to see.
Environmentalists, and Animals lovers will adore you as will the bear, wolf, and the bobcat who can return to those areas without worrying about those nasty evil guns used to drive them out in the first place.
It will be wonderful, Unless of course today’s American Indian has picked up certain bad habits:
Chief Wild Eagle:We can not lose business or my people will starve!
Corporal Agarn:What are you talking about chief? The woods are full of game, fish in the streams, nuts berries…
Roaring Chicken:Hekawis never learn to live off land
Chief Wild Eagle:Last time we have hunting party have to send out search party to find them
Roaring Chicken:Still waiting for search party to come back
F-Troop The Girl from Philadelphia 1965
Now I know what some of you are thinking: Such a deal gives an unfair advantages to tribes like the Narraganset, Delaware, Paiute, Mohave, the Winnebago, Miami, Shawnee, Chickasaw, Susquehannock, Powhatan and the Iroquois, whose ancestral lands are in blue states where budgets are doing poorly as opposed to tribes like the Apache, Comanche, Wichita and Kiowa, Dakota Sioux, Menominee, Creek and the united Seminoles as their states governed by people like Scott Walker and Rick Perry.
Have no fear thanks to the Urban areas run into the ground by Democrats who have an iron grip upon them those Red State Tribes can make deals with large democrat cities like Detroit to get prime spots in cities that were once Indian settlements in days past.
After all I’m sure the UN would approve.
