Random Thoughts: Corn, Indians, and Money

Since we’re still singing about it hundreds of years later, isn’t time to finally admit we care just a little bit that Jimmy cracked corn?

It’s an indication of how much political correctness has invaded my psyche that I find myself hesitating to call people in India “Indians.”

When money is in the marketplace it grows and reproduces. When kept in the captivity of government, it dies.

Be vary wary of anyone who acts certain how history will turn out.

Went to Boise Fry Company. Have new favorite “Idaho” restaurant to take out-of-towners to.

  1. Be vary wary of anyone who acts certain how history will turn out.

    Assuming they aren’t just an overconfident false intelectual, this is a good sign that they may actually be a dangerous time traveler. And it’s common knowledge that getting involved in time travel shenanigans is absolutely horrible for your health. The mortality rate for extras on Dr. Who is rapidly approaching red shirt territory.

  2. “Be vary wary of anyone who acts certain how history will turn out.”

    Especially, when they have no understanding of world history. Coincidentally, the same people claim to be experts in global science, yet have no understanding of that, either.

  3. I understand the hesitation of calling those folks from India Indians. Since they are residents of the Asian Subcontinent, perhaps we should refer to them as Subasians…or does that sound too much like a cyst?

  4. Here in the Free State of PIG, we never use ‘indians’, and we sneer at ‘Native Americans’

    We follow Burt’s line of thinking and use Siberian-Americans.

    SIBERIAN-AMERICANS, n.
    The 3rd or 4th wave of pre-Columbian, New World immigrants, they crossed into North America from Siberia about 11,000 years ago, then pretended they were “always” here by calling themselves “Native Americans”. (See also: Indians)

  5. @19: 11,000 years is so 1950’s. Now, it’s closer to 30,000 years and also ice age Europeans, and later, the Welsh, Vikings, Polynesians and Japanese also came to the America’s before Columbus.

  6. @21; 11,000…30,000 So be it. Call me a low information anthropologist.

    “ice age Europeans, and later, the Welsh, Vikings, Polynesians and Japanese also came to the America’s before Columbus.”

    As far as I know, none of THEM got full of themselves and it, by invoking the erroneous term NATIVE-Americans.

  7. Alternative Retirement Plan:
    After they complete their term in office, have them hospitalized incommunicado in a Mental Facility. Running for office is a guarrantee their sanity left long ago.
