    Try to keep track of the thread you are on dummy

    It talks about safety 75 years ago......that is why we are visiting the past

    Why do I always get onto threads with dummies?

    It's your reasoning or attempted answers that draw the criticisms dummy, not the thread view point in which hasn't been answered correctly yet. LOL.

    Hmm, what are the stats concerning safe areas and unsafe area's within the country over a 75 year period going back now ? Has it gotten better for the majority of the country or worse ? Will be interesting to hear that answer by someone here. I know of areas that have gone bad over time, but are the new areas (suburban), that are created larger than the over all consumption of the old areas going bad now ? This could be a huge contributor to the mindset of those who are left behind or can't get out due to old age, and have since been caught up in the government mishandling of the situation by creating dependency that gives very little hope to those trapped in that dependency. These people then move into areas on the governments dime, and in their impoverished dependency they can literally destroy the safety and value of an area in which is huge all depending. Not sure what the rates are between decline and new in the situations.

    Your odds of dying or being killed are a lot less today than in 1942

    That sounds safe to me

    It's simply refreshing to introduce some facts and history into the fantastical yearns you like to spin....

    They're not white any longer if they choose to do that.

    The Puzzling “White Indians” Who Loved Their Abductors.
    Posted on April 5, 2014 by admin

    Captive-taking by Native Americans was surprisingly common in Colonial times.

    It was also common for captives to choose their Native communities over their Colonial families.

    This puzzled the European Americans to no end.

    They came to America believing that conversion would be easy once Natives saw the superiority of the Europeans’ religion, clothing, agriculture, dwellings, and every comfort known so far to man.

    Yet there were very few Indians who converted to English culture, while large numbers of English chose to become Indian. Even Benjamin Franklin pondered why:

    “When an Indian child has been brought up among us, taught our language and habituated to our customs, yet if he goes to see his relations and makes one Indian ramble with them, there is no persuading him ever to return. [But] when white persons of either sex have been taken prisoners young by the Indians, and lived a while among them, tho’ ransomed by their friends, and treated with all imaginable tenderness to prevail with them to stay among the English, yet in a short time they become disgusted with our manner of life, and the care and pains that are necessary to support it, and take the first good opportunity of escaping again into the woods, from whence there is no reclaiming them.”

    One author put a bottom line on it in 1782, writing that,

    “thousands of Europeans are Indians, and we have no examples of even one of those Aborigines having from choice become Europeans!”



    Most of the thousands of “white Indians” left no explanation as to why they chose their adopted Native families and culture over the Colonials. They just traded in their hard shoes and disappeared into the wilderness.

    The only narratives we have are from those who chose to return to Colonial society. In those writings, it is clear that the “white Indians” valued what Axtell calls the Natives’

    “strong sense of community, abundant love, and uncommon integrity – values that the English colonists also honored, if less successfully.”


    Axtell also notes other values, such as:

    “social equality, mobility, adventure, and, as two adult converts acknowledged, ‘the most perfect freedom, the ease of living, [and] the absence of those cares and corroding solicitudes which so often prevail with us.”



    Face it....nobody wants to be with your kind....
