[quote]I know plenty of people in different countries who are critical of their leaders. It's not isolated to America. I'm not sure why you think the President is the only world leader who experiences this.[/quote] Critical is one thing, but no country approaches the level of expectation American...

[quote]The Founding Fathers were badass.[/quote] Oh, that is true. There probably hasn't been a better collection of men with a shared purpose in history, but reading their journals and correspondence, they were just as prone to pettiness, jealousy and misconduct as everyone else. They were still...

[quote] You've obviously never left the country.[/quote] I have. Many times. For years. Americans expect more of their president than any other country. Period. I think it has something to do with the lionization of the founding fathers. That's a bar no one can reach....

Why Do Americans Expect the President to be a super man? - PurpleandGold Motown
Honestly, Americans hold the president to ridiculously high standards. He must be intelligent, handsome, tall, well-read, articulate, charismatic, know all there is to know about damn near everything, be able to act decisively -- something very intelligent people have difficulty doing -- relate ...

Well, the Creeks were a divided nation. There were many factions, but in short, yes, they kept fighting. Treaty was signed in 1832. Many fought for awhile. Then, they went into hiding or walked to Oklahoma, turned around and walked back. There was still a large population in Alabama during th...

Oh my Great Grandmother was full-blooded Creek. I grew up on those old stories from her and my grandfather. I know my history both what's written down and oral tales -- though we were Lower Creeks, so not so many traditional tales were passed down. Lower Creeks assimilated prior to the Civil War. ...

Well, if we are talking about romanticized history, American Indians are one of the most romanticized cultures on the planet. That whole noble savage bull shite is hilarious and a relatively recent development caused by a strong reaction to the Wounded Knee massacre....

re: What is your honest opinion about transgender people? - PurpleandGold Motown
It's a mental disorder and should be treated as such -- and children certainly shouldn't be encouraged. However, no one can control your body. If you choose to have your dick lopped off and silicon put in your chest, that's your choice. It's my choice to believe you're more than a little bit c...

People romanticize Rome? I never got that impression. Greece maybe, but not Rome. Now, they give Rome credit for their achievements which, holy hell, are fricking amazing by any standard, but I don't think anyone looks at Rome and says, "Now that was a egalitarian society free of corruption and...

[quote]Basically Roy Moore is right. No where in the Constitution does it grant the Federal Judiciary the right to assume powers granted to the States. But they usurp it all the time. The Founders would be horrified to see how that document has been twisted and misinterpreted so as to allow agen...
