• Why have there been so few French immigrants to the US compared to other European countries?
      They were the majority of whites east of the Mississippi River in late 1700s and early 1800s. About 1/2 of the old towns still around and most of the small rivers in southern MO have French names. They, trappers, got along well with the Injuns. Once the Germans, English, and Scotch started moving in and farming/clearing, most got out fast, headed to N.W. Territory and Canada ahead of cultivation. A few stayed around in pockets.

      Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, on the Mississippi River was founded circa 1735, and is one of the few that was preserved.

    • Jews shud have had small State in Canada after WWII
      I remember they were talking about breaking off Montreal if Quebec separation went through. Also Quebec wasn't going to leave with anything more than they had when they entered confederation so Canada would keep the far north.

      Montreal has a lot of Jews. Many of the English left after the Quebec nationalist governments took over. Jews pretty much took over McGill and all the upper class wasp neighborhoods.

      The Orthodox Jews have a couple of Jew towns up in cottage country and parts of Montreal are very Jewish.

    • You recite all the Kipling you want Boris Johnson. Fuck the conquered in the ass.
      Reassert yourself Britain. Flex your muscle and shake the ground.

      During a January visit to Myanmar's holiest Buddhist site, he began to recite a colonial-era poem before being cut off mid-sentence by the British ambassador. "You're on mic. Probably not a good idea," he was told. To which the top diplomat responded: "What, The Road to Mandalay?" The answer: "No. Not appropriate." The poem by Rudyard Kipling is nostalgic about Britain's colonial past in Burma.

    • Strong evidence that Donald Trump has been a racist all his life!
      think of his taj-mahal casino fashioned as the temple of worshiping alibabas, swastikas, cannibals and borats. The racism has nothing to do with anything. it's a diversion for indian companions. http://i.imgur.com/gqP1hXm.gif

      Of course natural behavior of any indian companion is designed to bark at any alien or predator threat coming the way of the rainbow overlords. Little do the indian companions know that many of those threats are not exactly threats.

    • Did the South have the right to secede?
      [quote]..[/quote]

      The South has stolen most of the North's businesses and added a lot of foreign ones. But they paid the North back by sending a lot of niggers north to destroy their cities.

      Hyuck.

    • So what was the biggest trial of the 20th century?
      [quote]..[/quote]

      One example of the many absurdities from that "trial"...

      MR. JUSTICE JACKSON: Now, I have certain information, which was placed in my hands, of an experiment which was carried out near Auschwitz and I would like to ask you [Albert Speer] if you heard about it or knew about it. The purpose of the experiment was to find a quick and complete way of destroying people without the delay and trouble of shooting and gassing and burning, as it had been carried out, and this is the experiment, as I am advised. A village, a small village was provisionally erected, with temporary structures, and in it approximately 20,000 Jews were put. By means of this newly invented weapon of destruction, these 20,000 people were eradicated almost instantaneously, and in such a way that there was no trace left of them; that it developed the explosive developed, temperatures of from 400 to 500 degrees centigrade and destroyed them without leaving any trace at all.

      The Germans were acused of testing Atom bombs on Jewish "villages" (20,000 people, a village?).
