arma virumque cano (et alia)
Several states celebrate the day as Native American day.
When we consider the nature of the Aztec and Incan Empires, things there look more like a lateral shift, than a decline. And let's also remember that the United States of America wouldn't have been possible without a new world in which to build it.
Read 1491. The "genocide" was the inadvertent introduction of viruses for which North Americans had no resistance. That's what wiped out NA civilization. The rest was just mopping up. Seriously. Read it.
RF, good to see you here.
Thanks I will.
Also, there where indigenous hemorrhagic fevers, the cocolitzli virus, which reportedly killed 85 percent of the native population, around or immediately before the introduction of Europeans into the "new world". There where also reportedly airborne strains of an indigenous syphilitic spirochete, which would cause the skin to boil and peel off within days of the first symptoms (as well as causing the typical derangement) which ravaged the populations of central America at the time.Hey Mike, check this out.......https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U6tORrODJE100 percent legal, no license or NFA registration necessaryHere is another video (specifically titled "Legal Machine Gun!!! 800 Rounds Per Minute!!")https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ks5idq69MN4&feature=fvwrel
Bump fire technique isn't anything new, its been around as long as the semi auto anything. Anyone good with a semi auto rifle can do the same without the addition of this stock. The stock lets those thats not so good with the technique achieve it a little easier. But even with this stock it takes a lot of practice to make it work. The stock in and of itself does not make the rifle a "full auto". I can do the same without this stock or with any other modification. I can even empty a 1911 in the blink of an eye using the bump fire technique on a factory stock out of the box pistol. I have been able to do the bump fire with a semi auto rifle or pistol for around 35 years, nothing new here.So, what is your point?
Making a hero out of a racist, sexist, slave-making murderer has always baffled me. Besides, how do you discover 'a new land' when it is already inhabited?Leif Erickson wuz robbed!orlin sellers
