Indeed that's the story of every country, the story of all of us.

Every country has held slaves and battled with indiginous peeps.

Yes, idolize the robber barons who held monopolizes, exploited workers and the government for profit. One of the reasons we are in the mess we are in.

yeah I saw a couple episodes in the beginning then kinda got busy, but picked it up in the end, it was great! I learned a lot. The worst thing was they ended up showing Frick beating that guy to a pulp like 9 times....

What do you think the previous posters problems are?

Some more than others.

In any case, the indiginous peeps in our case, were more slaughtered by the black plague than they were us. As in all other countries with "indiginous peeps" they would most likely have a massive presence, if not have kept the invaders out, if it were not for the plague having something like an 80% mortality rate with Native Americans.

By the way phatty...the use of the phrase; "battled with indiginous peeps"... makes you a POS :D

I hope you someday get to be that type of peep.

It doesnt seem to me they have a problem. It seems to me youre the one who has a problem. They are just adding to the convo. Maybe they just dont like the kind of peep you seem to be. :-k

ummmmmmmmmmmmmm? Yes.....why would that compel you to watch it, but nothing else?

Electricity is definitely one of the most important building blocks of modern America. Tesla invented AC, afterall... and he certainly is one of the men who helped to build America
