Happy Columbus Day!

Cheers to the explorers of uncharted lands, settlers of the wilderness, and conquerors of lesser civilizations.

Remember the phrase, Vae Victis. Which means, “Woe to the vanquished.”

In modern words, “It pays to be a winner.”

One thought on “Happy Columbus Day!”

  1. Well, there really is no such thing as the “noble savage” as depicted by the “native Americans” today. They practiced every sin the Euros did including human sacrifice and genocide.

    As far as their @sacred ancestral lands” one must recall that tribes like the Sioux didn’t venture onto the plains from Minnesota until 1650 at the earliest.

    The most recent migration was preceded by at least 3 others whose members were likely killed off.

    Did they get a raw deal? Did the Euros cheat?
    Yeah, they did. Just like the Indians.
