*Oh please, make it as benign as you can.

conquering people was a well established and accepted practice in 1500. The Aztecs were no group of pacificits and did their share of conquering often for the purpose of human sacrifice. It is not a matter of will to conquer but the West had better ability and technology.

Bill McKinley died of gangrene, which was very common at that time with abdominal gunshot wounds. The gangrene was caused by poor surgical technique for an abdominal gunshot wound, not due to dirty instruments. The bullet was never removed and he was buried with it inside his body.

That still happens. And yes they did.

The Aztecs???? The Aztecs were included, sure. Beyond that I don't know what you mean.

And it was Obama's fault.

"Then those people are racist don't expand from those groups."

Can you explain what this means?

No, Obama would have speared him then ate him.... allegedly.

There are 2 items of misinformation concerning our country's history that I wish people would quit repeating.

The army gave Indians blankets infected with smallpox. NO, that didn't happen. Not at the Trail of Tears, not in western expansion. However, the British army did that to American Indian tribes during the French and Indian wars.

Witches were burned at Salem, MA. NO, witches were never burned in this country. They were executed by hanging or "pressing."

Our history is filled with enough bad things that we DID do - we don't need to make up things to make ourselves look even worse.

We all know you can't burn a witch, we've seen "The Wizard of Oz" like thirty times at least.

Maybe they did try throwing water on the witches of Salem, I never read anything that said they DIDN'T.

I spanked a witch once.
It was Halloween night and she was naughty.

You weren't by any chance wearing a vampire cape when you administered this spanking, were you?

Didn't they dunk witches and toss them in a lake to see if they float?

Bubba:

Yep - drowning was also popular method of offing witches, and usually involved tying bags of rock to them - just in case they knew how to swim.

But to prove how far they had come in the New World - the Puritans didn't burn them.

Yes, which was a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't situation if ever there was one, because this was a test. A real witch was supposed to float, so the only way to prove one's innocence was by drowning. Anyone who didn't was taken out to be hanged.

...less of an instrument to be abused by special interest groups and PAC money and lobbyists. Now does that make more sense?

Not to me. How much fine-tuning - in any country or situation - does it take to turn abuse into Utopia?

General (and later President) Jackson was known as "The Indian Killer". He must have handed out a lot of blankets. So did General Custer and his men, but the wind blew the germs back in their own faces.

Are you totally ignorant of this period of history, or an apologist for genocide?

2: But to prove how far they had come in the New World - the Puritans didn't burn them.

BPL: The Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay colony also declared a day of fasting and mourning for having spilled innocent blood, five years after the trials ended. Witch hunts went on for another ninety years in Europe, but not in North America.

I was referring to the 1500 during the spanish conquista there had been examples of germ warfare in history but I just had not seen any evidence that the Spanish were seeking to spread disease as they conquered.
