Preach it, brother. Looking at ScentCone's posting history, I can see that his posts are cunningly crafted to look like an average Slashdot poster, thus proving his true identity as a CIA/Halliburton/Illuminati/Bilderburger/Opus Dei/Sleestak agent.

Look out for the black helicopters. They come for you as we speak. I will soon communicate with you further through the resistance carrier pigeon network.

I'm not going to attach decorators to a perfectly factual word to match the full spectrum of opinions on a matter. The treatment of Native Americans was a mistake. That is a fact, and to my understanding not in dispute anywhere. It may be a good many other things, too, and describable in visceral, grisly detail, but I am not obligated to list them every single time I mention the subject.

Note that while we learn the trail of tears in explicitly negative terms, we don't apologize nor give back the land. That isn't ever going to happen.

It isn't land that concerned Native Americans; they did not even have a concept of land ownership. What concerns them most is that they retain ownership of sacred burial sites and objects of historical and cultural significance. Under NAGPRA, it is a criminal offense to find such items and not report them to the government for repatriation.

A rolling disk gathers no MOS.
