  •  We have a Steuben Street here in Pittsburgh. (6+ / 0-)

    There is a Steubenville over in Ohio. Named after the German guy hired by the founding fathers to make a real army out of the colonists. The founding fathers realized they weren't going to get anywhere with a bunch of undisciplined gun carriers.

    Cowboys had very little to do with the settling of the West. Cowboys moved cows around. They didn't fight NDNs. The West was already pretty much settled, by soldiers.

    It's not the guns so much as the myths that accompany them. That's what they are really afraid of losing.

    We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.
