  • We are the descendants of misfits and criminals.

    Really. The dregs of their societies back in Europe. Those who were deemed unfit to live in their native lands. They came here, hoping for an opportunity.

     

    So often the rightwingbots speak of the "culture problem" that makes the USA so prone to gun violence.

    Who better to own 310 million firearms than the descendants of misfits and criminals?

      "We"?

      I'm English. I descend from the English. I've been traced to King William I.

      I am not a criminal.

      "The British used colonial North America as a penal colony through a system of indentured servitude. Merchants would transport the convicts and auctioned them off to (for example) plantation owners upon arrival in the colonies. It is estimated that some 50,000 British convicts were sent to colonial America, representing perhaps one-quarter of all British emigrants during the 18th century."

      It was a cleaning program.sipping the misfits to the new territoreies.

      It didn't work out well for the flora and fauna.

      We feel with the flora and fauna.

    Think you're confusing us with Australia.

    On second thought...I really don't give a ****************.

        A branch of my family tree is descended from Owain Glyndwr (Owyn Glendower), the legendary Welsh folk hero and magician who fought against Henry Bolingbroke.

          Yes.

           

          Zig al-din not. He incidentically fell out of an airplane which made an non-stop flight around the world. When the airplane landed in Paris, the Al-din baby was missing.

        If we are the descendants of criminals and misfits, then what is wrong with being either a criminal or a misfit?

        For those going on about Australia, have you forgotten that Australia was a criminal penal colony?

          Agreed. Everyone in the human race is one or the other or both.
