Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Warren never claimed to be a member of any tribe or nation. She never gained any competitive advantage to gain a position. I will tell you what I think the Cherokee's can do with their statement but that's my own opinion. That's factually inaccurate. In the past she referred to herself as Cherokee ...

Re: Senator Warren Has Some Serious Class

You do realise the irony in telling me that I shouldn't talk about this while telling me that the problem with Germans in the war was that too many of them stayed silent . . . .

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Warren got pissed off at being called an "Indian Princess" by the racist piece of scum Donald Trump. So she got a DNA test that proved she has at least some Native American DNA and she then called on Trump to pay up on the wager he made at a rally. Of course he welshed on the wager as we all knew h...

Re: Senator Warren Has Some Serious Class

I really don't think I've been critical of Warren at all. I've been critical of some of her claims; but for me that's more of an academic argument than a specific criticism of Warren herself. I'm a Development geek. For Development geeks, things like community, identity, and indigenous rights are v...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Umm, where in the Constitution does it say you can post a comment on the Fogbow without being criticized? You can post what you want and barring it being removed by the moderators it stands. However, there is no First Amendment right to have your views go unchallenged last time I looked. But people...

Re: Senator Warren Has Some Serious Class

Or rather, the strongest criticism isn't coming from people who are criticising my view, but criticising my right or responsibility in saying it. If you want to debate the merits of my argument - that Native Americans should be able to determine membership for themselves - do it. I haven't seen that...

I didn't tell you to not say anything. If that's the sword you want to fall on have at it and enjoy. The posted evidence doesn't support your position, but that shouldn't make you stop posting. You should be encouraged to post whatever you feel. Doesn't help the country, though, this in-fighting. U...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

And saying we shouldn't criticise or talk about these issues because the other side is worse is stifling freedom of speech, which is playing exactly into their hands.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I understand that the issues of sovereignty and belonging are complicated and complex - that some of the people who refused to sign the rolls in the 1800s did so out of a political motivation to not accept white occupation, and as such, their ancestors have found that they are 'lesser than' those wh...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Because verifying your grandmother's story of her heritage should be career-ending, but getting caught on audio bragging that you can sexually assault women because you're a star is just fine. One of the major problems with Democrats is that they take their opposition's moral hand-wringing seriousl...

There was this brilliant Isaac Asimov story I read when I was in 3rd grade or thereabouts. I can't remember the name of the story, but I'll never forget the story itself. It's about a family who moves into the neighbourhood and is always very worried about getting wet. One day their neighbours conv...

Re: Jamal Khashoggi murder... will it ensnare Trump?

Really honestly and trying to take our immense hatred for Trump out of the equation: How likely is it that Trump was involved with this? There are people on that Twitter feed who are claiming: - Jared Kushner gave the crown prince a classified list of enemies (presumably to Saudi Arabia) - Khashoggi...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Senator Warren would make a very good POTUS, as would Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and many others. My sincere hope is that Trump will cause a complete and total implosion of the Republican party so that the party goes the way of the Whigs, and we have several successive Democratic preside...

For me it's a political issue; sovereignty is one of, if not the, most important feature of statehood. I once had a Mohican professor (who I hated, BTW, but this stuck in what was really a mediocre class) who spoke of his distaste for Mohicans who take out US passports in addition to their indigenou...
