WHERE DID THE
WHITE MAN GO WRONG???
TOUGH TO ARGUE
WITH THIS ONE.
Indian Chief 'Two
Eagles' was asked by a white government official, 'You have
observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars
and his technological advances. You've seen his progress,
and t he damage he's done.'
The Chief nodded
The official continued,
'Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did
the white man go wrong?'
The Chief stared
at the government official for over a minute and then calmly
replied. 'When white man find land, Indians running it, no
taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water.
Women did all
the work, Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting
and fishing; all night having sex.'
Then the chief
leaned back and smiled. 'Only white man dumb enough to think
he could improve system like that.'
