    That was always very entertaining. What's funny is that shows like that (and all the Comedy Central stuff) used to be looked at as satire. Now it is no different than any other media organization. Pretty much all "news" shows have turned into "The Daily Show".

    No doubt. It'd be a regular utopia.... they'd have only minor problems....like avoiding raids from brutal rival tribes, widespread slavery, human sacrifice, syphilis epidemics and bad trips from hallucinogenic drugs

    From what I have read, Mr. Phillips is a frequent agitator with a historupy of injecting himself into situations, escalation tensions and then citing racism after the fact. This is not the first (or second or third time) different camera angles showed that he was likely the aggressor in the situations he has been involved in.
    I'd like to see the sources of what you read.

    This is a forum..... It's a place to exchange our Views and to express our OPINIONs.

    My opinion is that Nathan Phillips is a FRAUD.

    However, it's just an opinion. But, I think, it's an informed Opinion.

    Now, What is your opinion of Mr. "Phillips"?
    If your opinion of Mr. Phillips is an "opinion opinion" then what is the information you have concerning him?

    As for my opinion on Mr. Phillips, I don't have one because I don't have enough information on him to form an opinion. However, I will read up on him and come back and give you my opinion.

    That's ok. That was the society they chose to live in. They didn't need people coming in looking for free land and stuff, using their resources. Not our job to determine how people live in their own country.

    And really, we wouldn't even know that they had those problems because we couldn't have possibly made it past the wall.

    Right on!

    & If only those evil Roman bastards wouldn't have conquered my people, living peacefully on our ancestral homelands (within Greater Germania) then everything would be gravy for me Now...

    Sadly, I may never recover, from the evil Roman colonial legacy...... I think I'll demand reparations be paid to me, from today's Italian citizens!

    Yeah, cuz Indians have it pretty "gravy" for sure. I mean, we're even nice enough to let them have their own legal system and rules on their own land. That's mighty white of us.
