  •  This meme is offensive to Native Americans (0+ / 0-)

    At least, it is to most of the Native Americans I know.

    Seems that Nebraskans aren't the only restless natives when it comes to the debt ceiling debacle

    Joan, please change this to something else. It is never necessary to demean an ethnic group, a gender, a sexual orientation, or any other group one does not join voluntarily in order to get your point across. Thanks.

    •  OK, I know the origin of the phrase... (0+ / 0-)

      (actually widely used throughout British Empire IIRC)...but seriously, I'm wondering if it's time to reclaim it.  At the moment it's mainly used positively to refer to people who are being oppressed and are getting deservedly upset about it.... which is kind of historically accurate....

      Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
