Flags are important symbols. History is complicated. Exercise your rights. Maybe, continue the debate, especially now.


Below: All hindsight, but regrettable support of an oppressive regime. Still, they helped stop the Khmer Rouge and somehow pushed back the Chinese. Also, I've heard from a professor that conditions for workers in Vietnam are better, in general, than in China.

Sincerely, thanks for your Doninines. Aloha, okagesama, salaam... I'm sure there are other examples. I've worked with some migrants, who proudly wave the flag (at times). Happy 4th!!!

I don't know the whole story, but sometimes I'm proud...

What Jaybro said above certainly bears repeating.

What happened at Standing Rock recently?

Have we changed?

American Indians would have still, in all likelihood, faced violence and oppression absent American independence, just as First Nations people in Canada did. But American-scale ethnic cleansing wouldn't have occurred.

Maybe I'm a bit too contrarian. The British weren't colonial?

Instead of what could have happened, maybe what can be?

Currently, there is a migration of Indigenous, people, from Southern Mexico to the U.S. Actually, it has been occurring for the last 20+ years, in part due to NAFTA. Trump is talking about re-negotiating trade laws. I can imagine how that might work out for both corporations, and the poor. Corn power?!

Thread drift alert:

What does her shirt say?

"Trump Care Makes US Sick" Romney care? I don't know if that is still a thing.

It looked like she was trying to mess with the sling wrapped around that big knob. Maybe she saw that it wasn't hitched.

If you need an anchor, build it proud.

Hope she's not called out on it. Finally, I don't know, but maybe Bachar would smile. He seemed to recognize the other side...

I do not vest my pride in a flag, I eye those who wave them suspiciously. It seems those waving hardest pay homage to a false idol and desecrate the ideals for which we should really stand.

Good one Jebus.

This is John Bachar's last thread on ST July 4th, 2009, that he had just started before he passed away on July 5th, 2009 ...

bluering I am not a commie. Away from Stennard this issue discusses some of the first known violent acts of genocide against Native Americans. They committed the acts against themselves.
The US has admitted to a low estimate of 2000 and a high estimate of 6000 deaths of Native Americans during the Indian Relocation Act.

Native Americans and Religious persons of all races still practice genocide against themselves here in the US.

Populations have also decreased greatly here from disease. See Spanish Flu around WW2.

Now for JB, RIP.

Thanks for the bump Klimmer. John's final statement. A harsh reality to think about.

The last great accomplishment of mankind will be to adjust the injustice of the past.
