    Come move on to Standing Rock. It's a good place to get killed. When I have to pass through I have a full tank of gas and my gun on my lap. My buddy is BIA there he says dont stop. If you shoot leave the Res and call him. It's real bad there.

    After approval "Mr/Ms Congressperson we are in compliance. The firearm has only one trigger so only one person can fire it.

    Jeezuz. I can only imagine that it's a lot of open terrain out there without many structures. What do they do--sit around in their vehicles waiting to get word from scouts to move in on a target?

    Or do they follow vehicles waiting for them to stop?

    I guess that's the place to keep your eyes peeled for anyone who stays in the rear view mirror for too long.

    It's a complete shit hole. I stopped at a gas station there one time and the lady said don't stay here to long.

    It sounds like a good place to end up being a segment on Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack.

    He died like 15 years ago. If he was hosting Moon'z episode in 2020, it would be the Twilight Zone instead. :popcorn:

    What if Moonz did disappear there 15 years ago, and he's really a spiritual apparition that doesn't know it's not really alive anymore?:ohno:

    Still a better Twilight Zone premise.

    That might explain a lot.

    It's been said you can't dig a hole there without finding a body.

    They must have some good soil for crops by now, then.

    The Noble Savage? That construct has been going on for centuries.

    Compared to some of the rapacious empire builders of the time...it wasn’t too far off. Just a different idea of what “nobility” meant, compared to what we see or think of today.

    All the Native Americans (maybe 1/2 dozen or so) I know say they're Heathens.

    One of my buddies took one of those cheap DNA tests, came back that he was black and not NA!!! I've seen his parents and some of his brothers/sisters, if he's not NA then nobody is. I told him to get a 2nd opinion cause the 1st one isn't right. Went to his moms funeral, I didn't realize there was that many NAs in Ahoskie NC, but the name of the city should have given me a clue.

    In most of the Nobel Savage motif, excluding the 19th Century Victorians but including the early 20th Century folks, it usually seemed to imply a simplicity unspoiled by the negative aspects of "modern" civilization.

    No joke, it's one of the reasons that Henry Ford insisted on picknick/bbq-charcoal boxes on his early cars.

  20. My great grand parents and their children were listed as Black on some census records. Maybe your buddy was not part of the five civilized tribes and that would cause the error?
