Good-bye Columbus

On this day, Columbus Day 2014, perhaps it is appropriate that in North America millions of its New World population are threatened by a disease,  brought by a people from another continent, that could conceivable wipe them out.

  1. True dat! Excellent thought!
    This is one of those things that is not funny, but I laughed loudly. And you will understand that.
    One of my friends posted about Columbus the man and I learned some things I never knew. Maybe we shouldn’t be celebrating him…and give his holiday to someone more deserving.

    • I was reading a little of that link yesterday.
      Where we live, Coronado is praised as the great explorer, they have raised monument Crosses to him along the trail he explored through here. In truth it was a blood trail, not only did he spread disease, he tortured the Indigenous Tribes horribly by cutting off their hands and feet trying to extract from them where the gold treasures and Gold cities were. All in the name of the Catholic Church, the bastards. I’m frankly very ashamed of how the locals here have glorified him, by naming museums, landmarks and game reserves after the son of a bitch. I feel the same way about the Italian S.O.B Columbus. And I’m not even a Native American, I can only imagine how they feel about it. E.
