"Chief Two Eagles" asked one official, "You have observed the white
man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances.
You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

The Chief nodded in agreement.

The official continued, "Considering all these events, in your
opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute and
then calmly replied. "When white man found the land, Indians were
running it. No taxes, No debt, Plenty buffalo, Plenty beaver, Clean
Water, Women did all the work, Medicine man free, Indian man spent all
day hunting and fishing, All night having sex."

Then the chief leaned back and smiled. "Only white man dumb enough
to think he could improve system like that."

Re: Progress

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)
