Did you know that there are pockets of “non-civilization” within our civilized United States? And we host them, and encourage them to continue to be not-civilized. We spend significant federal dollars on maintenance of these pockets of non-civilization. Those pockets of non-civilization are called Indian Reservations, and they are everywhere in the United States. One of the main definitions of civilization is people giving their allegiance to a Nation-State instead of a clan or tribe. Out of guilt for the way the early Americans treated the natives of North America, we continue to support their tribes, when we should be urging them to get civilized, and join America.
If it were up to me, this is what I would do. I would give the descendants of the original inhabitants of North America two choices. First, they could choose to become sovereign nations within the boundaries of their Reservations. Each tribe would be given title to the land on its reservations, and to no other land. If the Cherokee wished to be the Nation of Cherokee, they would have all their reservation land for themselves. The US Treasury would also give the Tribe all the money currently held in trust for them, recognizing that they are fully-capable adult human beings, and should be able to look after themselves and their families without the Big Brother Uncle Sam doling out the money and services. All services currently provided by Uncle Sam (like the Indian Health Service, schools, etc.) would then become the responsibility of the Tribal Government. Within their own sovereign territory, they would be able to have their own police, schools, banks, and public services. They would continue to own and operate any casinos or other retail businesses for themselves, and keep all the profits therefrom for their Tribal members. They would have no future call on the taxpayers of the United States for any goods or services in their own country. And they would have the responsibility to take care of their own people, and would never be able to blame any other entity for their problems.
The second alternative would be for all Indian Tribes to be immediately disbanded, and reservations done away with. All the money currently held in trust by the United States, and all reservation land would be divided up among all tribal members. All Native Americans would become full US Citizens, with no allegiance to any entity other than the United States of America. Old Tribes would simply become social clubs, where tribal members could celebrate their heritage in any legal way they wished. Tribal property like casinos and commercial land would also be divided up among the current owners, and they would become independent businesses, subject to the rules of the area in which they operated. All businesses would be subject to the tax and laws of their respective jurisdictions, as would individuals. Without the tribe to hold their allegiance, Native Americans would be able to become truly civilized.
Do I think this could ever happen? Probably not! But it’s been over 150 years since the Europeans conquered the Natives, and it’s time they surrendered. They just might find it a pretty good deal to become real US Citizens instead of pockets of non-civilization in our very civilized country.
I just couldn’t resist purloining this cartoon from a friend over at Ricochet. The cartoonist (you can just read his name in the lower right corner) is Theodore Seuss Geisel, better known in his later years as Dr. Seuss. Sorry if any of my followers are “triggered” by this overtly racist cartoon. Remember, it is over 100 years old!
I have wondered what might happen to me as a blogger if I just used the notorious “N” Word? Well, I don’t have to. Dr. Seuss did it for me. It is insidious, how the Left requires you to adjust your language to their standards. The first step toward ThoughtCrime.
Good grief! The infamous “Tent City 3”, run by Seattle’s “Homeless-Industrial Complex” representative SHARE/WHEEL, had to make an “emergency” move. The article I read mentioned that this homeless camp has been in existence for 20 years! Now, if the 60’s radicals who run Seattle tell you that they are working to end homelessness, please do NOT believe them!!
This homeless camp is such an institution that it has had its own insurance! And its administrators complain that no one wants to insure them. Gee, I wonder why that might be?
It seems that the Great Internet Monopoly, AKA Google, has a list of web sites that they have “blacklisted”, to try and bury their content and prevent casual web-surfers from seeing what they deem “dangerous” writings. Herewith, from a Ricochet post, is the Google list of dangerous sites that you should be discouraged from viewing.

Well, RushBabe49 has been proud of being as incendiary as possible here on my personal blog. I must say, I am proud as punch, as a Ricochet Member in good standing, to be in the hallowed company of my Hero, Rush Limbaugh, and Gateway Pundit, Glenn Beck, and LifeNews.
My advice to all my readers is to immediately patronize all the sites listed above, give them favorable comments, and get all your friends to do the same. Also, while you’re at it, Drop Google, and use DuckDuckGo for ALL your Web searches! Let’s do our part to Break the Google Monopoly Today!
To know which way the wind blows. Can you guess from which direction the wind blows at the Diablo overlook?
The much-pampered homeless in Seattle feel that they are entitled to erect their filthy tents on public property anywhere in town. So, when the city “cleans up” their illegal encampment, they just move on. Say, into the public Park nearby.
Remember, in Seattle the vagrants who camp on public property do not have to move when the city cleans up their camp. They are not in any way required to “accept a shelter bed” when the city “Navigation Team” offers one. In fact, the majority of denizens of homeless encampments around town refuse shelter beds when offered. So what does this mean? It means that the city is essentially powerless to save the public parks for the Public. If a homeless person decides to camp out in your neighborhood park, the city is prevented from getting that person off the street.
Who, again, runs Seattle? Evidently, not the city government, but the empowered “homeless” campers. Is this a city in which you would like to live? Not I.
Well, good news for conservatives in Washington State. This little headline made me just grin.
Inslee gets ZERO supporters in latest New Hampshire Primary poll.
Sounds to me like the DemocRATS of New Hampshire are very discerning, and know how much that poseur is worth. Exactly Zero.
