Because you don’t exist, you don’t own shit.

It’s not about the land or ownership of anything. The land, the earth does not belong to any of us it belongs to the almighty GOD. Yes, the past is the past and we should all forgive but NEVER forget. The thing is the white man in a way betrayed the natives. They showed the white man their ways, how to survive, and took them into their homes only to later be forced away from the land that was sacred to them. The white man took over and had no respect for the land and made life difficult for everyone including the Natives. Before the white man came, there was no need for money, medicine and healing was free, people got along and looked out for one another because since there was no such thing as money, there was no greed. It’s like biting the hand that feeds you. But the point I just want to make is that basically the white man verbally spat in the natives faces, disrespected them, treated them bad, and set off the set the world up for destruction.

first comment from unregistered user me?the first thanksgiving was all about getting welfare from the natives . the whites were starving , remember?even the history books we were taught in at school admitted it and really most history books written do not acknowledge help received in that way , soooo perhaps you could try to remember back to third grade and the thanksgiving play, even if you never cracked a book you ignorant person you. and yes you idiot im white and you give us all such a bad name.

ha, same ol lame white-bashing crew. That is the past. They had no laws that we know of, so we weren’t knowingly breaking them, hence not illegal We didn’t get Welfare or handouts from them either, I don’t think. This is happening NOW and needs to be stopped and undone.

True that, but it didn’t mean they had to kill them off, introduce disease and
substance abuse and take away their gods…just my 2 cents

Honestly…per the political system…presence of unregistered citizens hurts the economy and has been LINKED (not proven) to lead to an increase in crime. The people on earth today no matter where or who they are fuck it up enough anyways. And forget the religion and god…this has nothing to do with religion. Earth is earth and can do without some petty god. In five years there will be bigger problems…how about the world stop fucking bitching and stop having fucking babies….we are so fucking over populated that we cant even feed or clothe a third of the world….We help a nation and claim to save a million lives only to have to care for them years into the future and waste valuable resources in the long run. You (as well as I) are all fucked…fuck god. Fuck federal representation. fuck this fuck that…who really will give a damn….be glad you have food, water and a fucking place to go to bed…maybe someone else needs a chance…
Signed, a former republican now nobody, Iraq veteran of three years now poorly employed and somebody who once cared but now will just prepare for your imminent downfall…
Your replies to this message mean nothing…

funny….my understanding of Native American culture generally revolves around no concepts of ownership…so whitey didnt take anything, bc redman didnt own it to begin with, according to redman himself.

Guys, get real here, there are so many things that demand more attention than a cartoon. It may represent a real problem, but by arguing over it, you’re just getting pissed off, not changing anyone’s mind.
By SM, June 25, 2010 at 5:41 pm Link to this comment
Oh, I see, so 300 million Americans 400 years after the beginnings of the nation is surely the equivalent of people slipping into the country now.
Way to feed to the cause of angsty native americans to hate white people who have no responsibility for their current troubles - while they continue to drink themselves into oblivion.

Yeah, humans do crappy things. Some of the europeons came to America on peaceful terms and some not. Some of the native Americans were peaceful, others not. Scalping, anyone? America is a mosh pit and that’s not a bad thing. I’m perfectly happy with immigrants coming in through the legal means. And sometimes it just sucks when drug runners and felons try and come in and ruin it for good honest people.

Zena… you make the rest of the female population look bad.
Rick, many Christians are not ignorant. Please do not group a religious group in with the uneducated groups of crazies claiming to be “Christians”.
People: yes, immigration is not what it used to be. Is there a different way to handle it? Yes! Are people smart enough to stop fighting long enough to find it? No. Humanity seems to be built on violence and hatred. Wars happen. They may be wrong and stupid, but at times they are unavoidable because of the people we put in charge.
And seriously, just because someone claims to believe something, doesn’t make it true. Some people claim that God wants them to go to war against the infidels (Crusades) when really, they just want an excuse to be violent. Be kind to those who persecute you, yes; but you don’t have to agree with what they are doing! Leaving well enough alone might be the answer we are looking for right now.

excuse me “ZENA”, but while you were sitting on your fat little baby ass, with drool running down your face, Native Americans were fighting just to keep their fishing rights available to them. we managed to save them, only because the government didnt want the rest of the country to see the atrocities they were doing to the protestors. after that there was nothing left to lose, do you know why? because we are DEFEATED. DEFEATED. there is absolutely nothing else left to lose. and the rest of america is still prejudice against us and use our faces in logos, redskins, etc. YOU are the reason people HATE america LADY.

The cartoonist sure has humour, which can’t be said of many commentators here. Will the whole mankind try to enter the US? Not given the policies of leading politicians. The US is entering the third world faster as anything else, and ecological catastrophe is the outcome of the worldwide hunt for profits at any cost. Making the rich even richer is the “policy” of all parties and almost all candidates. The consequences are fatal.

I am an immigrant myself. Legal. So what? It’s just a paper. I am here for the very same reason the illegals are. Money. Job. Feeding my family.
Here is my question to you, dear americans, and please answer honestly: if we (legal and illegal immigrants) did not know FOR SURE that we could get jobs here in the US, we would make a different decisions about coming here to United States?
Ask yourselves: who are the “kind” people giving the jobs to the immigrants, both legal and illegal? It’s YOU! You want to save money, so you give us job. Stop giving us jobs and we ALL will go home. Don’t tell me none of you have seen the huge billboard on Mexican borders “Come here we’ve got jobs for you” in Spanish. The billboards facing Mexico.
It’s incredibly neat trick - to channel everyone’s anger towards the immigrants and “forget” the americans who bring us (immigrants) here by granting (yes, granting!) us jobs. At your expense.
And what about outsoursing? At the least I had to make an effort to come to the US and learn English in order to get job here. What about jobs that are handed over to India and China and indians and chinese do not have even to get to the US? Is it still immigrants’ fault?
Turn on your brain, please, do not blidly go where you are herded. THINK!

Very funny cartoon. I’ve only seen some variation of it , oh…about 3 bazillion times. How original.
Illegal aliens are the problem. Fill out the paperwork, get in line, respect the law and I’ll be bringing the cold cut platter to the “Welcome” party.
Otherwise, go the hell back to wherever you came from.
By Zena, June 27, 2007 at 3:29 pm Link to this comment
Americans have to show them ‘ze’ papers to get one of their lousy paying jobs, plus they have to piss in a jar. Not one whit of difference. Propagandists. Stop the paper shoving for Americans and the rest can go free. And not a minute before. What a bunch of clowns. Scary clowns.
You say it’s OK, for Mexicans to break the law, but NOT Americans???!!! You’re a bunch of crooks.
By Mark in NY, June 27, 2007 at 5:18 am Link to this comment
I agree, Mike: I believe that’s exactly the message intended by the cartoon. When I ask members of the “send ‘em all back!” crowd just how they expect to do such a thing, I get scary responses including going house-to-house kicking in doors a la Kristallnacht. Hey, if you’re legal, just show ze papers proving it and the storm troopers move on to the next house. Nevermind the damage to the door, fill out this form and you’ll be reimbursed…eventually.
Scary stuff, but good insight into the “conservative” mind—such as it is.

The “mass deportation” mania parodied here maybe invites the anti-(mostly “Mexican” Indio)immigrant crowd to get a little perpective….of the “walk a mile in ‘their’ moccassins” kind. Us surviving free wild Indians are looking for a somewhat different outcome (or, if you will, “out-go”) in all this, however.
We’re sure theallamericanpeople will soon be only too happy and eager to “vacate” Turtle Island voluntarily. They’ve never felt really “at home” here anyhow….have always been nervous about being caught red-handed as the army-of-occupation they’ve always been….have never gotten over their fully justified fear of “the Indian” behind every tree and rock. Now their current privateering escapade in Iraq has blown their own self-glorifying cover once-and-for-all-the-world-to-see.
Granted, there might not be any easy and painless way out of either mess they’ve gotten theirselves so slaphappily into, but there sure as hell IS a Way, and we can sure as hell show it to them here. So can and will (and are) the Iraqis, in that Indian Country “over there.”
No hard feelings, either….just a big “washte” of relief. There’s gotta be a good word for that in Arabic, too.

Frankly, from the bits of cogent words in your original post I find I’d probably agree with much of what you’d have to say, Zena, but the unwarranted gender-baiting obscures your points. Yes, unwarranted, because you don’t know me. Stereotypes are wrong, as always. The garbage below just underscores how much you’re willing to jump off a cliff not knowing where you’re going to land.
Enjoy your hate, it seems to define you.

Well, Mark; if you didn’t come here because you want to keep your drug connection, or writepropaganda for some chicken-plucking corporation, I’d say you were deliberately ignorant, or retarded and have not the brain cells to comprehend the whole picture. I have plenty of cause, but will not explain my understanding of the situation to a thug or a hoodlum such as yourself. “Do not cast your pearls before swine as they may turn and rend you.” Such as you have done. You sir, whatever you may be are not a gentleman, nor more importantly you are NOT an honest man. And the same applies to Rick. Sorry, you’re too late, the corp. already did. And I will defend my people sir. Unlike you, I have loyalty and faithfulness. The gig is up; crooks.

Well, Zena, if you didn’t come in here looking to kick them without cause I’d keep my snark to myself. Your attitude sucks.

Zena…if it wasn’t for the overwhelming ignorance of christians as a whole…and people like you….the whole thing would be laughable….if european americans would only read their history…they would realize that this(the U.S.) isn’t even a country….just the world’s largest corporation and employer of the world….it chews you up….and spits you out….next?

P.S. Any American that supports the invasion of Mexico of America, needs to be sent to mexico themselves. Or any country than the one you are betraying. I don’t care where you go, as long as you go…you should be sent into exile.

There’s nothing to stop Americans from fighting a civil war. This time we will have many from the North helping the South to fight against a bill called immigration that is nothing short of selling the American people into slavery. Because that is EXACTLY what it is. Isn’t that why so many of you guys hate women? You want to put them in their place because you feel a sense of misplaced ‘Enititlement’? Give me a break. You’re the Unchristian ones; stabbing your fellow Americans in the back. The Indians don’t care about sending anyone back, as far as I can tell, they just like to sit around and whine about anything available….and I can say that, because I have some of that blood myself. That makes us kin, keemosabe. Suck my snakbite.
