Why do those apaches even protest? It's completely pointless. They say that land is sacred for them but it doesn't even belong to them. Their time has passed long ago when white colonists drove them away from their native lands and now they are nothing but a vocal group of insane people. They should just integrate into society and forget about their native american heritage.

Why do those scotch-irish even protest? It's completely pointless. They say that flag is sacred for them but it doesn't even belong to them. Their time has passed long ago when anglo-germans from the far north conquered their native lands and now they are nothing but a vocal group of insane people. They should just integrate into society and forget about their southern heritage.

Why do those germans even drink? It's completely pointless. They say that beer is sacred for them but it doesn't even belong to them. Their time has passed long ago when the glorious red army showed them what real drinking is and now they are nothing but a vocal group of insane people. They should just integrate into society and forget about their bock-based heritage.

Why do those eagles-fans even protest? It's completely pointless. They say that Chip is sacred for them but he doesn't even belong to them. Their time has passed long ago when the New York Football Giants ate their lunch and now they are nothing but a vocal group of insane people. They should just integrate into society and start rooting for America's team.

I agree with that first assessment, but Jets fans are terrible. All hate, no love.

Bless the kooks on San Carlos. Everything is holy to them. The water out of the Gila is holy. Their 40% unemployment rate is holy. Mount Graham(not on the rez) is holy.

My neighbors are very entertaining.
