  •  Those first RealAmerikans (TM) (6+ / 0-)

    I think Gingrich just forgot to put Palin's adjective in -- probably because he can't afford to pay the royalties.

    The natives who were here had clans, used marriage to prevent war, and did not believe in parcels of land. Obviously, they weren't RealAmerikans. The James town folks were plantation men who used white slaves until they had black slaves, and they sought to get rich as Croessus. However, they tended to support the king, so they weren't RealAmerikans.

    Now the Puritans -- those were real! They believed in isolation, that they were elect for heaven, and lots of condemning of people who had stuff they wanted to take.

    Time is not a fiction; it is a narrative.
