Churches, government, communities. I ain't picky about which knuckle on the fist that hit me.

My mom never got over the fact that my grandmother "abandoned" her to the schools. My grandmother never knew she had a choice (if in fact she did). She was smarter with me. When I ran away from the school, she helped hide me.

Well, you got two legs of the trifecta, Durry. You hate "mud people" and you hate women. Why don't you give us your theory on gays? Round it out.

Yes that was a mistake made with the greatest of intentions .

Crap, it sounds like hiding Jewish kids from the Austrian Police.

Sure but the same sorts of discipline used on Native children in the residential schools was the same as used in both public and private schools in Canada up until at least the mid 1960s . Sure the children were taken away from their families for 9 months or so every year , but in the late 1800s and early1900s the population did not allow for schools in each individual community . Was there abuse , absolutely were there successful outcomes absolutely. I can’t comment on the American system but in Canada the residential school program is getting far more negativity then it deserves .

I wasn't in a Canadian school. I got my left upper arm broken and hospitalized with a concussion from the "discipline." I still have the scar.

I'm kinda glad I wasn't pretty enough to get the attention of some of the teachers. I knew some kids who were.

Basically true. There were also a number of white kids in the residential schools in BC at least. The ones that I know personally never mentioned anything about sexual abuse but the discipline seems to be the same as the catholic school in town was.
In our remote(then) part of the world residential schools were a good concept although there certainly were and to an extent still are many problems with how things unfolded. In the same timeframe the government also moved some small coastal villages into larger communities to try and ease the inbreeding. No one gave any thought as to how these bands might get along with the ones already residing in/near the towns. The law of unintended conciquences certainly had full effect there.

Yes in our ignorance we thought all natives were the same , however by the same token I called all East Indian people’s Hindu without realizing most East Indians in the lower mainland were actually Sikh . And how many Poles does it take to change a light bulb ?

Three hostages and gunman found dead after hours-long standoff in California at largest veterans home in the U.S.
Several hours after a hostage situation began in Yountville, Calif., at a home for 1,000 elderly or disabled veterans, law enforcement personnel found the suspect and all of his hostages dead Friday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.


The incident started around 10:20 a.m. at Pathway Home, where the gunman showed up and exchanged fire with a sheriff’s deputy who was responding to an emergency call, highway patrol officials said. The shooter eventually holed up in a room with three hostages, all Pathway employees, officials said.

Hostage negotiators and other law enforcement officials were never able to communicate with the gunman or any of the hostages, authorities said.

Yeah, by getting the f*ck out of that school at 13 and never going back. I got my education at the local public library, at the hands and minds of "teachers" who were the most wonderful, generous, eclectic, and frankly bizarre group you could imagine. And because they had no authority over me, they listened to me and helped me follow my interests.

So quit looking for silver linings in the American Indian School system. There weren't any.

There may have been in Canada. Canada generally has a reputation (especially among Indians) for much better treatment of us than the U.S. So understand clearly, I'm not talking about the Canadian system, I don't know enough about it to form an opinion. But on general reputation, I'll accept that your system was head and shoulders (and torso, and waist, and thighs) above ours.

I didn't even know the US had an Indian school system until recently. Best I can tell my grandmother went to a regular school. But this would have been in the late 1800s .Unfortunately There is no one left that I can ask.

Yeah, maybe our system was a bit better than the US system, but it made no difference, or very little difference, in the outcome of the Indians in the end, most still turned out to be useless and mainly relied on the Whiteman for survival.

'Have they started blaming Russia?' Moscow mocks Tillerson sacking

Quote:

Russia issued a mocking reaction to the surprise sacking of Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, with a foreign ministry spokeswoman asking if the finger of blame was already being pointed at Moscow.
"Have they started blaming Russia yet for the Washington staff changes?" foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a text message sent to AFP. She did not immediately make any additional comments.
Tillerson on Tuesday agreed that Russia "was likely responsible for the nerve agent attack" on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England, speaking on a flight back from Africa.
"We agree that those responsible — both those who committed the crime and those who ordered it — must face appropriately serious consequences," he added.
The U.S. has accused Russia of actively interfering in the 2016 presidential election, stealing Democratic Party communications and pushing out disinformation through social media, which Moscow denies. Tillerson, before being appointed as secretary of state, worked closely with Russia as head of U.S. oil giant ExxonMobil, which included meeting regularly with President Vladimir Putin.
Despite Donald Trump's initial promises of improved ties, relations between the countries have deteriorated sharply under his administration.
Putin once again rejected accusations of election meddling in an interview with NBC released on Friday.
"Why have you decided the Russian authorities, myself included, gave anybody permission to do this?" Putin asked in the interview.

Interesting to watch just how much influence Russia has on TrumpAmerica now. Both Putin and Trump love to shame others in the most derogatory and immatrue way. No wonder Trump is such a Putin fanatic. They think the same way. Little wonder Russia wanted Trump as POTUS.......

Hillary would have fought Russia on important issues that affected american democracy etc. Trump is happy to go along...... with Putin.......in a passive but his own way.


Suspect that Trump secretly admires Kim.......and really wants to meet him to see if they are as like minded as Trump thinks they might be. Both are tyrants but in a different environment.

By not condemning Russia' behavior Trump is condoning it.

Tiller son had his head screwed on straight . He is pragmatic , smart, diplomatic........but now he is Trump road kill. Along with so man others.

More to come.......you can bet on that one. Trump ;can't tolerate things running smoothly ........and fosters chaos just for his own pathological needs. These are the Trump weaknesses that Putin will manipulate to his advantage.

Senate passes rollback of Dodd-Frank banking rules put in place after 2008 financial crisis


Several Democrats joined Republicans to pass legislation that would exempt mid-size and regional banks from some of the strictest levels of supervision put in place after the 2008 financial crisis. The bill’s backers argue it will jumpstart the economy and strip away unnecessary red tape, while critics — including progressive Democrats such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio) — argue it will encourage the type of risky behavior that destabilized the global economy a decade ago.

So to recap: banks use deregulation create trillions of dollars of phony wealth - get caught - cause worldwide financial collapse - require years of government funding in order to survive, receive massive tax cuts as a reward, then arrange to deregulate once again

Oh the 1%

It really is something special
