I believe I need to trim this down but it is too fresh for me and I was working from memories of this and that so I may have timelines or other details a bit off. Do I need to clarify the connection between the coming holiday and the wrong that was done to the inhabitants ? Also I wanted to convey that for a long time, there were peaceful relations, benefits to all and mutual respect. It was a GOVERNMENT establishing its grip over everything and everyone that brought about the horrors that ensued later. And the government did not do so to hold to any pledge or the rights of all men. They put some figureheads that believed that jargon as focus to distract from the wealth being accumulated for the backers. Does anyone know where I can find out just who they were? who had to money to fund early politics? After the American Revolution?
And just who has claim to ‘Government Lands’? ARE WE THE PEOPLE or not? This is very important for me to understand because of the misinformation they gave my generation in textbooks . I would love any realted information or even your personal thoughts about this, please.
Colorful sparks shower down in sucession
whistling rocket spinners wail somewhere close;
the kids hold sparklers, wave their wands
making magic and not knowing anything
about fighting for the freedom that made us
a great nation, and a power that held sway
over countries united for a common cause-
to bring democracy to the global population..
No one will tell those children that the story
is fictional. It was not about opression,
revolution or peace. It was about money, or rather
the wealth of resources America promised.
There were some that set dishonest deals
and exploited the simplicity and sacredness
of the native born, using their fear and uncertainty
From the early 1730′s to tFort Mandan in 1804,
white men traded goods and learned the ways of
the many tribes along the rivers and on the plains.
There was little trouble here, though wariness of the Sioux
was apparent. But the Native Villagers from nearby lands
viewed the technologically advanced assessment as spirit-quest
and respected much too highly the strange things they were seeing.
The land we call home was an unmapped frontier;
the Colorado river was pure and swift and deep,
the gorge that it carved at had taken countless years
to forge; and it was an awesome, untainted thing.
Sparks from gunpowder and villages lain to waste
are what I think of when I see a fireworks display.
Independence is self-serving when disrespect
and subversion, fraudulent collaborative efforts to
take over and subordinate win victory for the indifferent
when it would have been better to have interdependence
It was offered by our hosts. Instead we are now
their governing republic, and they are ghosts.
Nonny, that is the best editing job I have ever received.]
not knowing about freedom that made us a great nation…” We are in countless ways still barbaric as a race – no I’m not speaking of just the white or black American race – I’m referring to the entire human race. It’s still survival of the fittest, dinosaur versus dinosaur, man versus man, and the weakest must succumb. And I am not talking of american patriotism, I’m speaking of patriotism applied to the whole human race (DannyR). Fault the weaker ones (the natives, the lesser nations) for their weakness, fault them for size, and fault them for their ignorance and call yourself strong and great! There is a flaw in all of it.
It’s glaring but we don’t see it.
