Politics: Send The Indians Back To Africa!

To quote George Washington in a letter he sent to the Hebrew congregation in Newport in 1790:

May the children of the stock of Abraham who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants—while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree and there shall be none to make him afraid.

There is a cherry tree on the Trans Canada Trail that's right behind my house: it's over sixty feet tall at this point, and flourishing. It's not a tree that can be easily brought down with a hatchet and intentions, but given enough time, and enough will, down it comes.

Say hello to the folks who have tiny little hatchets of minds, and are hell bent on bringing down the tree that Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and so many other, much greater, minds raised.
